Singapore Trip 29/12/2010-1/1/2011 – Part 11

February 14th, 2011 · 4 Surrendered

Continue from previous post about food we had on our last night in Singapore.

Before heading back to the hotel, we stopped by MOS Burger to try out one of the burgers.

Left: Hokkaido Milk Ice Cream (SGD2.75, this price was only valid with ordering of set). Ordered matcha flavour. Taste, it tasted as it should.

Right: Green Salad (SGD2.20).

Grilled Chicken Burger with Orange-Pepper Sauce (SGD3.35). Saw the advert on TV a lot. Finally got the chance to try it. Aiks… The size was so mini. Felt cheated by the advertisement ;p For this burger, the taste wasn’t up to my expectation. It’s a let down for me.

After resting in the hotel room and eating those food we had bought on the way back, we went out again. This time to the food court at Bugis Junction, Food Junction. The place was always packed. Went there few times(2 years ago no place to sit too, then first day in Singapore also no place to sit too) but could not find a place. Walked few rounds and finally found a place.

Ordered Buddha Jumps over the Wall, don’t remember the price. According to my dad, the taste was totally different compared to the time he was there. Only about 2 weeks later, the taste changed -.-” The one we had that night tasted like there’s salted fish in the soup.

After that, we stopped by Toast @ Work for chui kueh. Not the kind that we like especially the toppings but the kueh itself wasn’t that bad.

Last time, Kuching used to have very good one which could be found at Sunday Market but the lady no longer doing the business and her daughter could not master her skill, it’s gone totally. So there’s no more decent chui kueh anymore. Nowadays, mostly it’s not watery and silky enough. The toppings also could make or break this kueh.

Next, we went around window shopping in Bugis Junction. Before heading back to the hotel, we bought a cup of gelato (SGD4.50) at Gelateria Venezia. The yellow one was butterscotch(buttery sweet) and the pink one was raspberry(sourish). These two were not a good combination, made wrong decision *LOL* Could not taste both of them properly because of the combination.

That’s all for our day 3. Welcoming 2011 in the hotel room packing, watching TV and online. My parents and bro were asleep. I was the only one stayed up but called it a night before 12.30am because had to wake up early to go to the airport.
