12 Nov 2017 – Fine Dinning On This Good Earth
Fri: bus to meet up at ParkRoyal on Pickering, my favourite hotel in this area. Drama on the bus with this nasty guy shouting rude and unnecessary insults at the driver!!! Hats off to the driver who stopped the bus and told this rude person to get off if he did not shut-up. It worked.
While Ivy&May were shopping, Lock&I learnt something new and interesting about why Trengganu St was known as Japanese St in the early 1900s.
Chinatown Heritage Centre*****highly recommended. Time and money (FOC for me) well-spent to learn about life of the SIN early pioneers and discover the personal stories of people who made Chinatown their home in this restored shop-houses displaying living spaces, furnishings & artifacts of early Chinatown settlers. Was there some time ago before the renovations.
URA-Urban Redevelopment Authority and lunch@Tian Tian Hainanese Chicken Rice in Maxwell (天天海南鸡饭) where Lock bought a whole chicken, doggie-bag enough food to last me another 3meals! Needed an evening to rest my stomach while Lock&May met up with his cousins from his maternal side.
Sat: MRT to Stadium, my favourite MRT station. Thai lunch@Basil and coffee&cakes@CoffeeBean in Kallang Wave where there was this ongoing Healthy Lifestyle Festival SG. Good to catch up with Pauline&family.
Looked like the storm blew quickly pass us while we were indoors. Lovely breezy day to walk.
This concludes a week of fine dinning@Buona Terra/Good Earth*****
Yummy bread-sticks topped with Parmesan cheese, (Les thought it looked like part of the table decorations 🙂 ) delicate snacks, Sigaro Esotico – cigar (dessert) made of wafer with white chocolate passion fruit mousse, mango and coconut meringue. Wines from Les cellar.
Chitarra spaghetti with scilian red prawns (like the plate, was told that it is from Spain and I could get one here for S$200+), Egg zabajon with escargot, tartare topped with white truffle. Tomorrow is back to eating to live and not living to eat…

Sun: up early to bid farewell until we meet again, dear Lock&May.
Laksa and Fishball-Noddles for them before flying off. Could not put another bit of food in me! Safe journeys onward in this high-tech world from T4, my first time here, thus taking time to explore and take pix.
A petal theme reflected thru’out T4 — not just the skylights but the kinetic sculpture, carpet pattern, info post, etc. The sky-trains connecting T1-3 do not stop here, but you can get here by the public buses and a free shuttle from T2. The shopping and Kopitiam food still have a wider variety@T3.
