At IKEA Singapore On Saturday

On Saturday we entered into Singapore again, this time my son drove in. Since it is a weekend, there is no VEP charge... *oh, don't ask me what VEP is, I just repeat what I heard*  But of course, there would be other charges other than that, on both ways, going and coming out from Singapore.
There is normally no jam during weekends especially going in to Singapore... 
The currency rates might be one of the possibility that locals refrain from shopping in the Lion City...
Smooth traffic and soon we were in Singapore....
We spent a couple of hours in Jurong East and after that.....
We stopped by here to do some shopping at IKEA ....
But the main purpose again... is..... 
Food!
Surprised that they have pork knuckle there!
Couldn't resist... so we ordered one piece... 
So enormous portion... $13.90
Seafood rings....
Fried chicken wings at $7.50 for six...
And of course, this cannot be missed...
Andy ordered the large portion of 20 meatballs!
The bill of the above came to around $30 or so....
Not so sure.. I just wait to be served..
Like their environment, there were restaurant trash cabinets at every corner...
After all was done and eaten, we adjourned to another place....
 
We came here to drop a friend off....
And we started our way back.....
Oh... hang on there first....
Need to check the GPS... Google Map..... on the directions...
At the same time, check out which causeway is more "Free" from jams.....
Really .... the Apps are so helpful, right????

  2. VEP = Vehicle Entry Permit, the other charges are the toll charges for using the bridges.

    I have driven in Singapore a couple of times, it was quite unnerving, I drive cautiously and get bullied by Singaporean cars. They say if you are driving a Malaysian car, you need to be more aggresive to show the Singaporean cars that you are not an "outsider" car to avoid being bullied :/

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL...
