It's been long since a night-out place got me really excited. Well, mostly because I haven't had time to really prowl the streets during late hours these days because a huge part of my daily routine now consist of work which takes out quite a bit of energy to do blogging. Isn't it a wonderful opportunity to re-introduce writing about food especially with a great find like this? Trust me, I am always thinking about how guilty I am at leaving this space hangin'. OK admittedly this wasn't a discovery by me, but a recommendation from a colleague, someone with an astutely good taste for places. So here we are at Little Island Brewing Co. for dinner & drinks on Friday night.
I was looking forward to this episode of SING CHINA all week! Are you the same as I am? I am so encouraged by Na Ying and Harlem's past episodes in this season and remember amazing vocals such as Malaysian Li Peiling, Wang Chuang, Vinida, Ji Ke Hao, Yang Mei Na...! Too many! Let's jump straight into the competition deets of this week:
The West is definitely the least developed when it comes to cool hipster places to hang out at. Westies always have to travel at least halfway across the island.. but not anymore with Archipelago Creamery. OK other than the fact that I live approximately 10 minutes away from this wonderful place at Nanyang CC, but obviously it has to be good for me to go back three times right? And three times down and I'm not sick of it yet... gonna be back to try some of their pastries next time! But before that, I want to introduce this place:
JAY CHOU versus WANG FENG's team - five rounds of direct PKs as the competition heats up!
Who will emerge the winner? Your favourites - Nathan Hartono, Xu Ge Yang, and Low Key Duo - all in this energy-filled episode:
It started innocently enough. My significant other and I wanted to get some badminton shuttlecocks after a gym session, so we made a trip to the sports shop. But the price tag at the sports shop was $25 for 12 shuttlecocks (or something like that). Something in me just wasn't happy with that. How can something so mundane be so expensive? I was certain that this was just not the best deal possible. Then an idea sprouted in my head and I thought of Taobao. Because everything on Taobao is super cheap, right? Plus, I am sure 90% of the shuttlecocks in the world is made in China aka. where Taobao is from. It made perfect sense.
But there was one problem: isn't Taobao the one with super confusing instructions and walls of Chinese words?
Say hello to the new work-resident of Toa Payoh. I've been working in the area for nearly a month now, and I have had the pleasure of eating my heart out at this amazing foodie's heaven! It is downright satisfying, and it has made me look forward to working every day - well, just the food alone is awesome. I have not been able to blog as much because work has thrown a spanner into my usual routine. Now that I have settled down a little (no, actually it's just because there's a three-day long weekend) I can finally start to re-introduce blogging into my routine! So I've decided to embark on a new food series - a "native" Toa Payoh food trail, thanks to the introduction to all the yummiest things around this neighbourhood.
