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!

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.

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…

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.

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.

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.
