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 :/

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

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

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...
