Prawn Noodle Soup is a popular local hawker dish originating from Fujian province (福建 which is Hokkien) in China, and hence its name 福建虾面汤 (Hokkien Hae Mee Tng).

Ampang Niang Tou Fu East Coast

Last Monday could not be any more blue… TJ was (still is) ill with no conclusive diagnosis from the doctors we visited. The first doctor said TJ likely has false measles – Roseola, sometimes called Sixth Disease or baby measles, which is characterised by a high fever, followed by a pink-red raised or flat rash. … Continue reading

Xing Yun Kway Chap 幸运果汁 @ Tampines Round Market

We were chatting about food on Facebook last Saturday when I “demanded” Stanley to bring me to eat the famous kway chap he had talked about many times.

Sungei Lembing Trip – Part 2

We continued our journey to Sungei Lembing and Michael, our tour leader who is also a master street photographer, informed that lunch and toilet break would be in another 2 hours or thereabout when we arrived in Pahang.

Million Fishball Noodle 隆興百万鱼圆麵 @ Kim San Leng Bangkit Road

The gratification that comes with delaying one’s urge to buy food ahead of the others when eating out with friends in a kopitiam is that I get to see their food before deciding if I should follow suit – visual impact risk assessment, lol… A couple of weeks ago, I saw this Hong Kong style … Continue reading

Little India Singapore – Spice Up Your Life

I have always wanted to learn street photography with some human elements in them but I am shy about approaching people and am afraid that they might confront me if I took their pictures without consultation first. But then again, the “mood” may be different with artificial pose. Anyway, this was a Tuesday, a rare … Continue reading

Can you believe that my appetition for a plate of wanton noodles turned into a feast of Taiwan Porridge? Of course you can, since you know me by now 😉 I had a craving for this particular wanton noodles but the stall at Tanglin Halt was closed. Click on pictures for full view.

Old Geylang – Exotic Or Erotic Comestibles?

As a gourmand, I am always hungry to try new eateries and food. While the restaurants or cuisine may not be exactly au courant to the rest of the foodie community (non-bloggers inclusive), they still seem ‘modernistic’ to me as I am not up-to-date with our local makan scene. A newbie at food blogging (I … Continue reading
