I am glad I came - National Gallery Singapore

To keep myself from only eating and working, I have to find alternative activities to keep myself entertained. I went to the national gallery Singapore to look at some exhibitions which are free of charge. Not crowded at all so it is safe. The National Gallery Singapore is an art museum located in the Downtown Core district of Singapore. Opened on 24 november 2015, it oversees the world's largest public collection of Singapore and Southeast Asian art, with a collection of more than 9,000 items. These are the two exhibitions I went to: 1. City hall wing level 3  Something new must turn up: six singaporean artists after 1965, is a joint exhibition of six solo presentations that explores the diverse artistic practices of six post-independence singaporean artists. This exhibition offers an in-depth and comparative examination of how these artistic innovators broke new ground and contributed significantly to the development of Singapore's modern and contemporary art in the post-inde

Foodpanda delivery - A lan Japanese cuisine (27 July 2021)

Two days in a row ordered foodpanda food delivery. I ordered Tori katsu don (one of their popular items), one chawanmushi and one avocado with gula melaka drink. The avocado drink tastes like drinking chendol, sweet and tasty. The katsu was soft and tender, not too hard, just nice. The chawanmushi was my favourite. Overall the meal was satisfying even though the rider was 10 mins late. The don was packed in a paper container instead of plastic container. They came packed in a plastic bag like this.

Foodpanda delivery - Gu Thai house (26 July 2021)

Finally I got tired of takeaway food from my neighborhood, so I ordered foodpanda food delivery. Even though it is more expensive to order from foodpanda but we are paying for the 2 Cs. First, we get the convenience, just a few clicks and buttons away, you get delicious food delivered to your doorstep  Second, we pay for the comfort of waiting for our delicious food in our home sweet home. This saves us time and effort to physically walk to dabao our food. I ordered Thai red curry (instead of the usual Thai green curry which I will order) and one steamed rice for my dinner. The rider arrived 5 minutes earlier than the set delivery time. The curry was still piping hot when it arrived at my house, thumbs up! That was my dinner. My lunch was homecooked minced meat balls porridge.

Feng shui items

After reading Twilight man's post about the power of crystals, I was inspired to blog about the auspicious items in my house (living room). The gourd or hu lu, is a very popular feng shui abundance cure used in the traditional Feng shui applications. The hu lu is used not only to attract the energy of money but also as a Feng shui cure for health and good luck. The Chinese word for gourd, hu lu, is a homophone of the words 'protection' and 'good fortune'. That may have been the reason why the the ancients considered gourds to be good luck charms, hanging them over doorframes or carrying them to ward off evil. The other auspicious item, the red crystal ball is the ideal solution to repressing the effects of the malignant number 3 flying star. The number 3 hostile flying star (argumentative star) is the origin of many problems such as fights, verbal arguments, negative assertions, misunderstandings and lawsuits. These problems are also the root cause of many social is

Homecooked food

As now dine in is not allowed starting from 22 July to 18 August so sometimes my mom will cook. This was my lunch and dinner on Fri 23 July. Steamed egg with minced meat, pumpkins with dried shrimps and bkt soup with pork ribs and mushrooms. I like both the steamed egg and the pumpkins as they are soft and nice to eat. The sauce of the pumpkins was very flavourful.

Clear fish soup with rice

This was my lunch when we can dine in at my neighborhood coffeeshop. Clear fish soup (S$5.00) with rice (S$0.50) and additional tofu (S$0.50). Total S$6.00. A healthy lunch for me. The tofu are soft and easy to eat. Not sure what kind of fish is that, maybe will ask them next time, but I think is batang fish.

Long time no sea part two

Today my uncle and my auntie jio me to go Vivocity to eat bkt and to go Sentosa island for a walk. My uncle called at around 2.30pm. I got ready by 3.30pm, before that I had my coffee quickly. After that I went to pick up my relatives in my Benz (bus lah lol). We had bkt (pork ribs soup) and pig kidneys with rice. We sat at separate tables with no mingleing. Then my uncle and auntie had lychee drinks while I had lime juice. It was my treat to them. No pics of the food as it is the usual bkt. After that we went Sentosa island by Sentosa express monorail. These are the pictures we took. A relaxing day out with my relatives.

Crystal jade palace

Today meet friend for dinner @ Takashimaya crystal jade palace. We made reservation for 2 adults @ 6pm. We reached there at around 5.30pm. As it was still early, we went to kinokuniya bookstore besides the restaurant to jalan jalan. There I saw a book by Dalai Lama titled Book of Joy which address our inner feelings such as fear, stress, anxiety, sadness, grief and loneliness. I thought of buying but in the end did not buy. We ordered their signature Peking duck @ S$48.00. I like the Peking duck skin with fats that melt in the mouth. We also ordered vegetables with beancurd sheets and ginko nuts in superior broth @ S$26.00 and Grandma's pork belly @ S$22.00. The vegetables are a bit bland with broth that is not as superior as what it was stated. But the pork belly was soft and tender with flavourful and sticky sauce. Bill total was S$124.75. It was my treat to my friend. This round after dinner we did not go for chit chat but just went home straight. Entrance Appetizer Peking duck
