Having lived in Singapore for most of my life, I never really appreciated the true value of a steamboat till I went to study in New Zealand. You see, in Singapore, it’s tropical weather all year long. I used to eat steamboat whenever (albeit usually in an air conditioned room). Continue reading
For my birthday celebrations, L gave me 3 restaurant options to choose from. I had been to Pete’s Place many years back but had quite forgotten about the food. Hence, I took the opportunity to have a revisit. Continue reading
