Crowded Orchard Road And Vivo City, Singapore

It was a Sunday when we walked along Orchard Road.... to my amazement, the whole road was really crowded... As a chinese saying goes, "Mountain and the sea are full of people" (yan san yan hoi)... so here we were, joining in the crowd... mostly they are Filipinos who come out every Sunday to meet up with their friends after a week's work....
along the busy Orchard Road..
meeting place to catch up with one another....
and we joined in the crowd... walking and walking along the road...
then we took MRT to Vivo City here.... 
it was also crowded with shoppers... 
an entertainer cum singer crooning to some beautiful songs...
while I took a picture with a golden Santa...
from Vivo City, you can see Sentosa and Universal studios...
but we didn't go there ... just look from afar...
a nice pool to dip your feet in at the top floor of Vivo city.. 
After some hours of shopping in Vivo... 
We adjourned to another part of Singapore... Clark Quay!


  1. Wah Claire, you go kai kai again ar?
    So nice....

  2. Ya...I cannot stand Orchard Road on Sundays. All the maids come out to play...and they go to church and chit-chat non-stop instead of pray. So irritating!!!!

  3. Wow! Sure a leisure. But look at all the crowds in Orchard Road and Vivo City I also dizzy and stress.

    Never been to Vivo city. Must visit when I have the chance. Hope to go next December. :p Nice xmas decoration.

  4. I can't stand crowded places. Nice view of Sentosa & Universal Studios.

  5. hayley: that was a week ago.. hahaha...

    stp: once a week to meet up and chat, it is natural that there are lots to talk about.. give a break.. hahaha.. I think if we work overseas, we also will feel like that.. talking non stop to our fellow citizens.. :))

    rose: Singapore really has the christmas atmosphere each year! :)

    irene: maybe now we are not spring chicken anymore.. so we opt for more quiet places.. hahaha..

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days.... Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table... Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served...  Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL...  Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch
