Sightseeing At Battle Box, Singapore Sling And Marche Singapore

SIGHTSEEING HERE AND THERE..

The second day in Singapore was spent following the captain to one "battle."  We took Grab service and he dropped us at the Battle Box at Ford Canning.  The Battle Box is formerly known as Headquarters Malaya Operations Bunker, constructed under Ford Canning Hill, Singapore as an emergency, bomb-proof command centre during the Malayan Campaign and the Battle of Singapore during the 1920s.  He loves going to these war history places and museums and we, the ladies, just followed the leader....
Tickets to go underground was bought here... 
They have time schedules for each guided tour... 
Since we had an hour to spare before the next tour, 
we "hiked" up Fort Canning grounds... 
Must be quickly on the move... mozzies are aplenty there!
Keep moving the legs...
the Mozzies were at war with us!
We spent a couple of hours there... 
Then we walked all the way to the CHIJMES...
It was formerly a Convent... and now turned to restaurants and bars... 
So beautiful.. it reminded me of my former school Convent in Ipoh... 
Next stop... Singapore Sling at the Raffles... 
Cooling down with a Singapore Sling...
a "sack" of peanuts to go with the Sling...
Dinner at Marche at Suntec City... 
Two sets of Mixed Platter.... Pork Knuckles, Grilled Chicken among others...
Desserts as usual to complete the meal.... 
And then it was the ladies' turn.. 
Shopping throughout the night... 
And then walking back to the hotel just opposite the mall...

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

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...
