We ordered ngo hiang (S$8), sambal tapoica leaves (S$8) and salted egg prawns (S$18). I had two bowls of rice. After that we went to the shopping mall opposite our dining place. We went to my old office place where i used to work in 1992. Gosh 27 years ago! Just to reminisce.

Another Korean Drama - My Lovely Girl

In the midst of chasing this Korean Drama, My Lovely Girl. Even though the plot is always the same (rich handsome man falling in love with a poor girl), however I find their art direction successful in bringing out the chemistry between the actor and the actress.

Having the K-pop industry as the backdrop, the drama tells the story of two pained individuals who find healing through music. It aired on SBS from September 17 to November 6, 2014 on Wednesdays and Thursdays at 21:55 for 16 episodes. [2] [3]     Synopsis Lee Hyun-wook ( Rain ) is the CEO of a talent agency that scouts and trains idols.

Taiwan Postcard from TM

Twilight Man went to Taiwan in February and I received a postcard from him. The scenery on the postcard is so nice and captivating, makes me feel like going Taiwan again.

8 March - 11 March Vietnam Trip - Hotel, traffic and weather post

I like the location of our hotel as it is very near to attractions such as the hoan kiem lake and hang duong night market. Our hotel room Our hotel (Level 12) Even though hanoi's traffic is horrible but i find that theirs is an organized mess. As long as you walk steadily, they will give way and you will be safe. Nonetheless i still miss SG's orderly traffic. Hanoi's traffic Hanoi's traffic Hanoi's traffic Hanoi's Traffic Hanoi's weather was very cooling when we reached there which i like as SG's weather is too warm. I didn't know that hanoi has got four seasons until i reached there, so jakun. Cooling weather

8 march - 11 march Vietnam Trip - Introducing Hoan Kiem lake and Hang Duong Night Market

The hotel we stayed is very near Hoan Kiem Lake. Legend claims in the mid-15th century Heaven sent Emperor Ly Thai To a magical sword, which he used to drive the Chinese from Vietnam. After the war a giant golden turtle grabbed the sword and disappeared into the depths of this lake to restore the sword to its divine owners, inspiring the name Ho Hoan Kiem (Lake of the Restored Sword). The area is best Fridays to Sundays when nearby traffic is banned 7pm to midnight and a public-square, funfair vibe takes over. On the third day of our trip, we went to Hang Duong Night Market for shopping. We bought many things here, will share about the loots in a later post. There are so many things to see and buy here at Hang Duong Night Market.
