13 Oct 2017 – TGIF On This Friday 13th!
Tue: gravlaks in process.
Cooking is all about people. Food is maybe the only universal thing that really has the power to bring everyone together. No matter what culture, everywhere around the world, people get together to eat – Cooking is all about people.

Grocery shopping@Parkway and took the time to enjoy a cup of Matcha tea at the Japanese Food Fair.
Treat@Glory for an ice-coffee and popiah made up of lettuce, stir-fried turnip, carrots, beansprouts along with the cooked egg, prawns – it is then wrapped with a thin popiah skin made from wheat flour with fresh garlic, chilly-sauce and sweet bean sauce inside.
A short walk around before dinner@Jo’s.
Wed: welcome to YeeJit who is born in SIN ️immigrated to Australia when he was 8 and here is attending a conference. His father, uncle Vincent being the importer for fresh produce here in SIN in the 1950s was the one who first introduced me to the taste of fresh strawberries, asparagus and ShanghaiBlackBeanEel when I was a child. Appreciations to Les&Ivy for hosting a welcome dinner with his champagne, wines and yummy mussels.
Gravlaks, smoked-duck, German potato-salad, local fruits and kueys.
Thu: a walking tour started with the best PrawnMee@Blanco Court Prawn Mee 白兰阁街大虾面 on Beach Rd, continuing to HajiLane.
Arab St area where those lamps and the vibrant colours from the Middle East never fail to fascinate me. Food seems to be what he remembers best (same for me 🙂 ) from his childhood days!
Have been seeing this camera building when on the bus and been wanting to find out what is it all about – turns out to be a VintageCameraMuseum@Jalan Kledek but did not go in this time round.
Had to take a pix of these colourful HDBs before they get torn down. Into Little India where the ambiance for the upcoming Deepavali (Wed 18Oct) is well-worth the time for all to check out.
Good to meet with YeeJit’s group to introduce them to LauPaSat 老巴刹, literally translated to OldMarket also known as TelokAyerMarket for dinner. Satay indoors on this wet evening. Drinks with a view@LeVeL33. Tkx for good company, dinner&drinks to all. Fortunate to get on the bus before the sky opened up.
Fri: TGIF on this Friday13th and a safe weekend to all. Ever wonder what the big deal is about this silly date? It turns out the history of Friday13th is complicated. There are superstitions about Fri, superstitions about the number 13 – which together seem to create the fear of Friday13th. Most of these superstitions are rooted in religion…
