Short Holiday At Mercure Hotel, Singapore

SINGAPORE HERE WE COME!

We drove in to Singapore on a weekday. Or should I say, I drove in... according to Singapore laws on driving, once you become a permanent resident, you cannot drive in Malaysian cars anymore.  Hence I was the driver for the next few days in Singapore, no joke! :)

From Tuas, Johor, we passed the customs, opened our boot for inspection, went through the counters, showed our passports, paid the VEP or whatever it is called.... and using google maps as our guide, we managed to get to Mercure Hotel at Stevens Road without and glitch, Thank God for journey mercies, our one hour long journey was smooth.  Parked our car at the hotel basement and registered ourselves to this pleasant and comfortable hotel.
Driver in Singapore.... 

Our destination... 
Our place to stay for the next few days... 
Lazy chair for me to do relax while they work... 
From our 18th floor window.... 
20 minutes walk from our hotel to Orchard Road...
The hotel provides shuttle van service every half hour to and from
T-Galleria Mall at Orchard Road.... 
Very convenient for us....
We normally take the shuttle bus and from T-Galleria.... 
And walked around.... no shopping though...
Lots of walking and talking..... 
Good to be together again!

  2. What's the room rate there? Bet it costs a fortune...even before conversion.

  6. The mall is spectacular, so modern and artistic; also huge! And your hotel is very nice, luxurious and lovely rooms. So Ipoh is about an hour from Singapore? Only a short trip.

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
