To celebrate the younger brother’s birthday, G suggested that we head to an Italian restaurant in the heartlands for dinner.
The restaurant has a nice rustic setting, creating a homely vibe with it. Servers are really friendly as well. Gosh, they even alerted us when the “ma-cik” was seen in the parking lot (not that we had to worry about them). Continue reading
Sunday Market is not the easiest place to find. In fact, my first time there, I took a cab. It seemed faster and easier to take a cab than take the train, followed by the bus and then walk to the place. However, if secluded and quiet is the place you’re looking for, then this is definitely the place to go to. Continue reading
Had the opportunity to visit Serangoon Garden Market for lunch last week. I usually come for dinner when most stalls are closed. Finally got a chance to try Ah Seng braised duck rice which had a pretty long lunch queue when I was there. Thankfully, the queue moves pretty fast. Continue reading
A traditional teochew lunch to celebrate my grandfather’s birthday. Yay!

The mall is like super huge and there are like so many different eateries – definitely points for variety. Continue reading
iSteaks started out as a hawker stall selling value for money grilled meats and fish before their overwhelming popularity led to them opening this more comfortable outlet at myVillage. G decided to ‘blanjah’ us dinner so he decided to take us there for dinner that night Continue reading
