Goodbye April Showers!

30 Apr 2012 – Happy Bday JohnC

Sat: chaos on the home grounds to discover a leak in the pipes from the hot water tank. The whole tank had to be replaced with a new one. Just as well that I was doing some spring cleaning when the leak was noticed. Would be really unfortunate to have gone off and return to a flooded flat!

Yummy dinner@PorKee Eating House****in Tiong Bahru with my favourtie coffee ribs. A night of karaoke@K Box/Kallang Leisure Park with the young people was a nice relaxing evening on this last weekend before flying off. Supper@Selegie Tau Hauy/bean curd**** Tkx to Leonard, Audrey for their lovely voices and to niece SueLynn for good company to get the mind off packing, closing down the flat, traveling,  etc 🙂

Sun: Casa Bom Vento****hot and spicy Eurasian and Peranakan lunch with KimBeng. First time tasting their food was nearly a decade ago when they catered for one of the Orchid Shows. Liked it then but they closed down and only recently re-opened on Joo Chiat Rd.

If you are a fan of this kind of cuisine, the Devils curry will do the job. It nearly burnt a hole in the stomach and probably kill my taste buds but it was delicious. Ayam Buah Keluak/chicken stew with black nuts was tasty and one could savour the distinct black nuts. Keep up with the good food Lionel and will be back with overseas visitors. This kind of cuisine is certainly Uniquely SIN 🙂 🙂

Have a wonderful 1 May tomorrow and welcome to the month of May…
