    Title : Valentines Day Lunch at Chef Daniel's Kitchen
    Time : 8:10 PM

    Hello everyone. So sorry for the MIA. I was SUPER busy with CNY preparation, CNY(itself) and my new job.
    Yes, i have lefted that stupid company. Congrats to me, ok?
    Anyway, i thought that there will not be any Valentine's Day celebration this year as it coincides with CNY first day.
    But nevertheless, Bee still remember to bring me out for a lunch and movie date.
    I appreciate that a lot. :)

    We went to Iluma, the new shopping mall opposite Bugis Junction.
    The reason why we went there is because of Chef Daniel's Kitchen.
    Chef Daniel's Kitchen is started by Chef Daniel Koh.
    Many of us had seen Chef Daniel Koh on television(mainly Channel 8) and we all know that he is the Executive Chef for Holiday Inn Singapore.


    Bee and I are actually quite curious about this restaurant and of course, the FOOD.
    So, we decided that we should try it, and there we go!

    Chef Daniel's Kitchen is located at Iluma Shopping Mall(Bugis) level 7.
    The restaurant is surround by a lush of greens and it is very windy there.
    (Not enough to fly a kite thou)
    The main restaurant and the kitchen is situated at different spots.
    I think this is to ensure that the air-con in the restaurant will not have the food smell.
    Leaving customers going out smelling fresh and stomach filled. :)




    This is the kitchen with a sign board that reads "Chef Daniel's Kitchen".
    The kitchen is very bright and transparent.
    You can see many chefs with tall hats working busily.
    I wonder if they are Chef Daniel's disciple? :D




    This is the menu and the first page.
    A picture of Chef Daniel Koh holding a glass of wine.
    He looks very un-natural(to me).
    But at least, very friendly. :D

    My darling bee browsing the menu.
    We could not decide on what to order as most of the dishes in the menu looks good.
    We were expecting the menu to be short and concentration should be on the specialties.
    Just like what Bee and I had in Warrington.



    Finally decided.
    We ordered sashimi, tempura, soup and main course.
    A mixture of Chopsticks, Soup Spoon, Fork and Knife! Damn Fusion.



    Home-made Ice Lemon Tea(me) and Coke(Bee)
    The Ice Lemon Tea cost $5 per glass. Very expensive but taste good.
    One sip and you'll know that they use very good tea leaves.
    The drink is smooth and fragrant. :)



    One Foccacia bread(each) to start off the meal.
    The complimentry focaccia bread is served warm.
    Light crisp on the outside but inside is soft and smooth.
    Definitely deserves a second helping. :D



    Sashimi: Capacio
    Sliced scallops with special sauce and big orange roes.



    The combination of the special sauce with thinly sliced scallops and big orange roes:
    One word to describe, Perfecto.



    It is written on the menu that the sashimi(s) are freshly imported from Japan.
    Air flown some more ok! :D
    I can easily finish one plate by myself. *Slurps*!



    Tempura: Prawns, Shitake Mushrooms and Peppermint Leaf.



    My comments:
    Prawns are extremely fresh.
    Mushroom is big and crunchy

    Peppermint leaf is very well done. But they only give one piece. :(


    Chef Daniel's Specialty Soup:
    Cream of Mushroom Soup
    Topped with Cabbage, Croutons and sliced mushrooms.



    Bee is trying the soup with the cabbage.



    Evidence of him eating veggies.
    Snapped. :D




    Here comes the Main Course!

    My Spring Chicken with Foie Gra.


    Bee's Grilled Spring Lamb Chops
    Suppose to be difficult to cook and Bee wanted to test the Chef's standard.
    His comments?

    Very Good. The standard is pretty similar to the ones we had in warrington.


    Mixed Veggies that comes with his Main Course.

    Our Verdict:
    Food - 8/10
    Service - 6.5/10
    Ambience - 8/10
    Price - Reasonablely Priced
    Bill Size: $100 for this meal.

    We highly recommend Chef Daniel's Kitchen to people who appreciates Good Food.

    Title : Tortoise Kueh aka Ang Ku Kueh
    Time : 8:39 PM


    Recently, i discovered a new snack for my tea break and that is... ... Ang Ku Kueh(aka AKK). I have re-named it as Tortoise Kueh because the shape of it looks like a tortoise shell. Yeah yeah. I have walked past this shop SEVERAL times and heard a lot of good raves about this shop. But i did not have the courage to try. Because when i was young, my parents ever fed me with some lousy Ang Ku Kueh and therefore, i had bad experience about it.

    Then one fine day, we(colleagues and me) walked past the shop again. This time round, i paid more attention to what was written on the menu card.
    WOOH.

    They have about 8 different AKK flavours. From the usual sweet bean paste and peanut to the more exotic ones like CHAMPEDAK! Oh my god, i love champedak. And hell, it was Champedek that gave me the courage to try again! My colleague bought one piece of the sweet bean paste AKK while i bought one piece of the Champedak one. Wanted to try Yam as well but it was out of stock!! According to the guy, Yam is the most hot selling flavour there.
    Went back to office and the first time i did was to try the AKK. Tell you, itis damn fucking yummy! :) Never regret trying and i'll definite go back for more!


    I went back the next day(earlier) to get the Yam flavour. DAMN GOOD LOR!

    Title : woman, woman...
    Time : 12:58 AM

    "How can a married man tells another lady that he nv stop loving her, so am i right to say tat HE IS LYING & BEING SELFISH & UNFAIR TO HIS WIFE..?!?!?!? So Y get married in the first place since he cannot forget the other girl ??? Y waste each other's time ?!?!?"





    I copied this phrase/status from my friend's Facebook. I am not really close to her but each time we get to talk(phone/meet up), she will tell me somethings about her life. I know who she is referring to and my impression of this man has gone straight down to the drain. *errrk*





    Let's say if.....





    1. Your man(BF/Hus) dates another woman while dating you AND continues to contact(SMS/Call/Meet up) the other woman after marriage(ROM in this case).


    2. you are shouldering your man's commitments such as mobile phone bill(s?), car loanS, room rental and other loans... All above mentioned are under your name.



    3. ROM for the sake of using your OA to service HDB housing loan installments and use you for sex.


    4. Your man is so selfish that he is not willing to sign any loans under his name and even use your own family member's(sister/bro/parents) name as gaurantor to get loan.



    What will you do?

    Title : Menya Shinchan Japanese Noodle Restaurant
    Time : 6:12 PM

    Lunch: Menya Shinchan Japanese


    Noodle Restaurant


    We visited this restaurant on 27th December 2009 because my husband was craving for Shio Ramen. Shio is a kind of salted soup. After Waraku took it off their menu, he had been thinking of it day and night... So, with Mr Onuma's recommendation, we set off for Menya Shinchan!

    But actually, to tell the truth... We were heading to Ippudo Singapore at Mandarin Gallery. I was reading the reviews in the car(yes, with the help of my 32gb "Ipod"). Majority of the feedbacks were not encouraging. We hesitated and hubby asked me for suggestions(he was driving slower and slower). I suggested Menya Shinchan and with some positive reviews from the net, we headed there immediately!!!(HUNGRY!!)

    Reached there around 1pm. The restaurant is situated at one corner of Robertson Quay(not facing the river). It is near a Taiwan-Jap cuisine place. The shop itself is not very big and upon arrival, the waitresses greeted us warmly. We were ushered to a table near the cashier counter. The waitress served us warm towels and ice water. Very good service i must say. :)

    We anxiously browsed through the menu and ordered our food(HUNGRY!!). Bee ordered the Shio(RICH) ramen and i ordered the Pork bone base with scorched sesame and garlic oil seasoning Ramen.



    Order placed. Now waiting anxiously for their Ramen...
    Baby JiA playing with his baby bowl


    After waiting for about 10mins, our noodles arrived. The noodles looks like those we eat at Ajisen. As for taste wise, it taste like "La Mian".


    Mine:
    Pork bone base with scorched sesame and garlic oil seasoning Ramen.


    Out of curiosity, i asked the waitress about the origin of the noodles and i am pleased to know that the noodles are freshly made by the boss. :) How nice!

    As the 2 boys shared a bowl of noodles(obviously not enough), they ordered one more bowl of double noodles!


    As for me, i ordered another plate of yummy char siew.
    $3 for 5 pieces.

    I was quite tempted to order the char siew rice($5) but i overheard the kitchen staff telling the waitresses to stop taking orders for rice item. No more rice for the afternoon. :( Guess i'll have to keep that for the next session.

    Overall, the food there is not too bad. For people who have not been to Japan but want to have a taste of it, can go down. Prices are reasonable and service is excellent.

    Title : Looking back... 2009.
    Time : 11:18 PM

    Year 2010 is the year of Tiger.(Not exactly now but in another 1 month time) Looking back at 2009, I would say that i had an adventurous year. Starting of 2009, i resigned my job from Canon Singapore. It was a tough decision to make but necessary. Q2 of year 2009, i started OneStop Consulting. A debt counselling and consultation firm. Aim at helping people with debt/credit card/bankruptcy problem at a lower price and faster processing. At the same time, went back into propoerty. Was quite active in Yishun doing rental. Closed a few cases but definitely not enough for my family.

    So, i had to go back to the corporate world again. Joined my current company(leaving soon) in Q3. At first, everything was fine but as i progressed on... things were not what i expected. Towards Q4, my working pace slowed down... Partly also due to my England trip. :p

    Well, november was a great month. Went to England and had lots of fun there.(Hubby was working there). Well, after the trip, job search continues and i manage to get myself a good offer. At least, something comforting to know. :)

    I am actually serving my notice period now. Doing nothing or rather, doing things like pasting stamp and surf net. At the same time, update my blog as well. :p

    Below are some pictures yesterday. Enjoy it!




    My job for the day: PASTE STAMPS!!!!!


    Sapporo Beer Drops from Japan.
    A gift from Eric and Wendy.

    Title : Second Korea BBQ attempt at home sweetest home
    Time : 11:48 PM

    Second Korea BBQ attempt at home sweetest home
    Today marks our second Korean BBQ attempt at home. It sounds really crazy to do it at home because of the aftermath. All the cleaning and scrubbing! The previous round, i had a pretty hard time scrubbing the grill pan. But i just can't forget the tasty pork belly and the load of BBQ foods. So, here we are... trying for the second time. But before that we had to go down to NTUC at AMK Hub to shop for the ingredients as well as some daily necessities.



    Waiting for lift.
    JiA gave Daddy a kiss because his wonderful daddy will always carry him and feed him.
    THUMBS UP for my hubby.


    At AMK Hub Mos burger
    JiA dipping his fries with Mayonnise.


    Fox Baby/Kids having 50% off.
    After walking for one round, Bee concluded that it is not worth getting.
    JiA feels on top of the world with him sitting on his father's shoulder.


    After 2 hours of shopping, its time to head home!
    JiA standing on the trolley bay.


    Trying to dance?!



    Gonna finish loading soon!



    And on the way home, he fell asleep.
    So hubby carried him and the 10kg rice while i carry the rest!



    My hubby helped out with the re-packing of the raw food.
    Then process to the bed and start his racing again/vampire killing again!!!
    -___-!!!!



    Me? As usual, preparing food in the kitchen for my 2 boys.
    Finally, its time for our BBQ session!!

    Big Chin aka Bee aka Hubby and also...... aka Grilling/BBQ Master


    This time round, we prepared marinated scallops as well.
    Taste very good!
    After dinner and the usual cleaning up, the 3 of us went to bed.
    Looking forward to my next Korea BBQ session.
    Ciaoz~

    Title : Sam Huat & Co
    Time : 12:23 AM

    CaveFamily at Sam Huat & Co

    Today we went down to find Eric and Johnny because we were craving for the porridge behind their shop. But at the same time, can chit chat a little and catch up with them.
    After lunch, JiA and I went back to the shop to accompany aunty. Talked to her about somethings(which i will be blogging). I think that both me and her are quite like-minded. Because of the things we do, say and of course, thinking. I enjoy talking to herbecause she teaches me a lot of things that are out of the textbook. :)

    JiA and his fav Uncle Johnny.
    Both of them were running in and out of the shop chasing each other.
    -_-!!!


    JiA and his fav Uncle Johnny
    2nd shot.


    At about 5pm, they packed up the shop and that KPO JiA still wanna play with Johnny.
    As Johnny was busy with the packing, Eric took over. haha!


    Getting ready.....
    1 , 2 , ...................................



    3!!!!!!!
    FLY~~!!!


    I enjoyed myself at their shop and of course, the nice porridge. The uncle(porridge seller) actually remembered that my pork liver must be cooked! So nice of him to remember.
    Will be patronising his stall regular to keep his business going. And of course, will post some pictures of his porridge and ee-mee soup. :)
    Next time, of course.
