This bowl of Bak Chor Mee from You Nuo Shi (Eunos) Rou Cuo Mian tasted pretty good! The soup base and minced meat tasted pretty similar to Xing Ji Rou Cuo Mian - Blk 85. However, this one focus on its dumpling rather than meatballs. The ingredients that was added to the dumpling was flavorful! If you prefer dumpling over meatballs, why not come visit this store instead?

Previewed Ah Niu 阿牛 - 光脚丫. This album was decent and I thought it bring out Ah Niu personality in his singing. Simple and meaningful lyrics which drew my attention and brought back certain memories, be it bad or good. Though there isn't much exciting element added in the songs; I felt that the emotions he put forth was already good enough. 

The recommended track from me will be: 光腳丫寶貝我的寶30++ and 給從前的愛!

Signing off with his hit song!

Went for Teo Heng for KTV session at Rendezvous Grand Hotel! A new outlet which opened recently! As usual, the sound system was good! This will be another alternative place to sing in town area.

The different rooms which cater for the number of people per group!

The system not only let customers select songs but also allow them to play game as well. You can actually challenge yourself with the list of songs provided. After you completed singing, it will grade you accordingly! Rather interesting ya?

Compilation of my singing + duet with Danny for last song! Had lotsa fun (:

The dish here is Bacon Olio from Aglio Olio! The presentation of the dish was nicely presented! This shows that the chef put in effort before serving the customer. 

The portion was decent and I thought that the bacon blended well with the Aglio Olio! Not too oily or dry. Each mouth was appetizing which suit my taste bud. 

Ambiance: 3.2/5

Walt Disney Animation Studios, the studio behind "Tangled" and "Wreck-It Ralph," presents "Frozen," a stunning big-screen comedy adventure. Fearless optimist Anna (voice of Kristen Bell) sets off on an epic journey - teaming up with rugged mountain man Kristoff (voice of Jonathan Groff) and his loyal reindeer Sven - to find her sister Elsa (voice of Idina Menzel), whose icy powers have trapped the kingdom of Arendelle in eternal winter. Encountering Everest-like conditions, mystical trolls and a hilarious snowman named Olaf, Anna and Kristoff battle the elements in a race to save the kingdom. 


Watched Frozen with Joe on Saturday night! The story plot was simple yet entertaining. Though it focused only the few characters, I thought the flow was good! It was touching and the songs were pretty good! You rarely see musical in an animated film and you get to catch it here, which was nicely done! One great combination! A fantastic touching musical film which reminded me of what true love is all about. A show suitable for the old and young! 

One of the song which I enjoyed it pretty much!

Bryan also asked a interesting question, "Eh, Ya hui, among the 3 hunks (Ian Fang, Aloysius Pang & Shane Pow) who will be your ideal guy? And She gave a smart answer, "I like one big tummy instead of 6 packs guy"! hahah! 

At the same time, Bryan also talk about his infotainment program - A Taste of History 《寻味地图》.

Celebrating Bryan Wong's birthday! 

After which, it was dinner and preview screening time!

《寻味地图》A Taste of History

Taste the rich flavours of traditional delicacies. Feel the deep sentiments attached to their heritage. Be touched, not only by the taste of food, but also by the stories behind it – stories forged by history and the creators of the very dishes. From the past to the present, we shall let our taste buds discover and relive these fond memories. A Taste of History ingenuously combines food with history through selected local delicacies featured in every episode, presenting their local ethnic origin and long standing heritage.

寻味地图》 A Taste of History was being screened first for us to watch! Did not have a good view watching but yup still managed to catch some glimpse of it.

This infotainment programme was host by Bryan Wong. The food that was introduced on the 1st episode was Peranakan Pastries, Taw Kwa Pau and Fried Hokkien Prawn Mee. It featured the history of Katong area. As usual, He did well with his hosting and introducing the variety of classic dishes!

Episode 2 will showcase on the former Joo Chiat and its food! Look out for it!

Established shop ‘Nanyang Delicacies’ is searching for ‘the fated person’ who can discover the special flavour behind its laksa. The one who has the correct answer will be given its laksa secret recipe, worth a million dollars. Many have attempted but failed to even meet the founder in person, until this day when 3 boys in their twenties arrive in the shop. Upon tasting the laksa, they ask “Can I see the chef?”. From that moment on, their life stories are rewritten.

The following will be the 4 main cast:

曾美薇 (雅慧饰) / Zeng Mei Wei (starring Yahui)

The “S” in the acronym S.H.O.T.. Zeng Mei Wei has always wanted to be like her dad (Chew Chor Meng), a master chef. However her father disapproves of her passion & even forbids her from entering the kitchen. Mei Wei is not at all disheartened but more determined to improve her culinary skills. 

庄浩伦(包勋评饰) / Zhuang Hao Lun (starring Shane Pow)

The “H” in the acronym S.H.O.T. . His mother left him and his 一younger sister to her colleagues at the KTV bar when they were young. Hao Lun thinks she eloped with a man, and takes special care of his sister out of fear that she will make the same mistakes as their mother. Hao Lun has superb negotiation and marketing skills. 

陈欧文 (方伟杰饰) / Owen Tan (starring Ian Fang)

The “O” in the acronym S.H.O.T. . Owen is usually mild tempered, sometimes “slow” witted, and often teased by Hao Lun. He will see red whenever he sees red colored fluids. Hao Lun is skilful with his kitchen knives. He grew up selling char siew with his mother, but made many mistakes due to his bad temper.

何泰龙 (冯伟衷饰) / He Tai Long (starring Aloysius Pang)

The “T” in the acronym S.H.O.T. . Tai Long is from a wealthy family. He is the second son of the boss of a large restaurant chain. He is born with a special gift – every time he tastes something, he is able to sniff out all the raw materials used to make that dish. He is observant and dislikes confrontation, but seems to always land up in ‘battles’ and conflicts.

After which, Served Hot 《烧。卖》teaser was screened! This film here focused on the story of the process on becoming a successful chef and the hard work behind before becoming one. In order to achieve the goal, each of them try their best working on the dish again and again before being recognized as a good chef. The theme song for the drama were rather catchy too.

A refreshing film which encourages viewers out there to persevere on their dreams, and never give up even when facing rejection and obstacles!

I think it will be better if episode 1 of this drama was screen on that day.

Popiah making for games!

Enjoyed eating the fried rice from Jin Hai Cooked Food! The fried rice was evenly fried, each bite tasted good! The fragrance of this dish attracted consumers going back to order the same particular dish. 

The portion is pretty big thus it is worth the buy! Good that the chef added char-siew and chinese sausages to make it more appetizing! I think this dish had "家的味道"! Nice...!
