14 Nov 2016 – Thanks To Les & Ken
Sat: Beach Rd with the nearly completed Duo (residential, offices, retail, hotel) – a contemporary twin-tower integrated mixed-use development with Parkview in the background. Blanco Ct PrawnMee is a must when in this area!
Wall-murals@corner of Beach Rd and Haji Lane.
Haji Lane – this charming tiny lane, hidden away in the heart of the Muslim quarter, is a fashionista’s paradise. The collection of narrow colourful trendy shop-houses are many Kodak moments for those who can appreciates this.
Arab St – like hanging around to window shop – Yun managed to get a few things here.
Sat: walking towards OUE on this beautiful moonlit evening. Tkx Yun for the pix in the elevator.
Tkx to Les for gathering a small family group (Les, Yun, myself, Lee, Yasmine, Daisy and Darryl – with 3generations) for fine dining with a view at ME@OUE*****
Starters with Sashimi, Spanish Ham and their Squid ink brioche followed by a main of Côte Du boeuf, sautéed mushroom, mashed potatoes with arugula. Château Latour 1986 brought by Les – a meal fit for those who know how to appreciate good international foods!
Japanese say Americans are lazy. HA!! At least we cook our fish!
How can you expect to govern a country that has 246kinds of cheese – C de Gaulle.
Note to self: Alcohol based marinades and gas ovens SHOULD NOT BE COMBINED…
Sun: seafood to die for – tkx to Ken&Cynthia at Crab@Bay548 Macpherson*****
Two of their signature dishes, Crab BeeHoon and Guinness SpareRibs (you would think that only the Irish knows how to use their national drink… lol ) are a must.
Salted-egg salmon skin ( a more than perfect snack with a glass of good bubbles), and clams (Bamboo/Razor and Lala clams (啦啦) are delicious.
Mon: thank goodness for the rains and what an ideal day to snooze and rest the stomach. Am I still dreaming after the last 2meals or am I in heaven yet 🙂
The older you get, the tougher it is to lose weight, because by then your body and your fat are really good friends – to DIET is to DIE without the T.
When a man’s stomach is full it makes no difference whether he is rich or poor – Euripide
Walked for 3hrs this evening hoping to see the Super-Moon, but the clouds were just too much for the moon to even peep thru’. Instead stumbled upon Lion&Dragon dances on the East Coast Pk evening walk.
Can someone plx tell me what the burning of a paper boat and sending it out to sea is about???
Edited 28Nov: 15th of the 10th Moon is also the day when the Taoist prays to the Shui Guan (Official of the Water, literal translation) tkx to Victor Yue from the Heritage Society/Bukit Brown.
