Four of us starting our foodadventure here. 

DSC02226First up is the century egg with cold tofu. (SGD 4.00) Tofu was sliced thin, sprinkled with minced century egg and a touch of sesame oil. Well, they always blend well together arent they? 

DSC02228Double boiled chicken soup (SGD 5.00) Nothing much to shout about but sometimes, or most of the time, we are just craving for soup!

DSC02232Shanghai Xiao Long Bao (SGD 4.30) XLB is a must in all dim sum feast. Becarefully on your first bite, the oozing meat sauce is enough to give you a satisfying smile. 

DSC02234Fried Wanton (SGD 2.40) Very bold flavour. The wanton skin is fried to crisp but it sealed all the juice inside. Meat was tender and seasoning was spot on. I am not fancy of fried food but this is really good

DSC02236Steamed Salted Egg Yolk Custard Bun (SGD 3.90). It doesnt have the wow factor but it is good enough as compared to the many many big restaurants. I like my egg yolk custard bun to have more texture on the fillings and this is the silky smooth type :)

DSC02237Har Kao aka Shrimp Dumplings (SGD 2.40) Prawns were fresh and the skin is thin and fluffy

DSC02239Eggplant with spicy meat sauce (SGD 7.00). Being eggplant addicted, this one is just ok. I prefer my eggplant to be more tender and flavourful. Huhuhu. But as long as got eggplant Im a happy girl. Hehehe!

DSC02243Chicken Claw (SGD 3.00) Something I would order almost every time I had dim sum. Now, this one is far beyond expectations. Very flavourful and the chicken claw will just melted in your mouth. Oh nom nom nom*

DSC02241Steamed Pork Ribs (SGD 2.80) Even if theres some odd times I gave chicken claw a pass, steamed pork ribs is forever my first pick. Pork ribs anyhow to me is nice lar..

DSC02246Siew Mai (SGD 1.80) I forgot how it taste but siew mai literally taste the same. Hardly can go wrong with siew mai unless they use pate instead of minced meat. Hehe!

DSC02245Beancurd Prawn Roll (SGD 3.00) As you know, I dont fancy fried food except fried chicken so its a so so for me. 

DSC02244Steamed chicken with egg (SGD 2.50) Something that you would see everyday. Love this tender juicy steamed chicken and what is the best among all? The egg sauce!!! Infused with the natural chicken juice, soft fluffy and you will just keep asking for more!

DSC02247Lastly, deep fried shrimp paste chicken wings (SGD 8.00) to sum up the supper. LIKE!

A sinful night with best eating partners = happy night! Definitely come back for more this April :)

Its March Already!

Its March already! Time flies! Good news, this month gonna be slightly busy which is good. A few road-shows coming up and a short solo trip! Looking forward to! It has been like 6 years since I had my solo trip. 6 years ago my solo trip is more like an adventurous trip. Thrill and exciting.. 6 years later today, my solo trip will be a quiet one to think through everything. Clear my mind and look further away. Not too bad but.. just  need to be tough to go through quiet travelling. 

Bad start for 2015. Blame no one but myself. But maybe everything happens for a reason. No choice but to hold on to this statement. Life will yet to be beautiful again soon. 

Happy Chap Goh Mei People!!! I am eat this mandarin now! *oh nom nom nom*

A letter to myself

It took me 27 years to realised why my relationships doesn’t work out. I’ve always believed that as long as I hold on to my principle, as long as I love, I can just be myself and do whatever I want without needing to please people around me of what I am doing. When I was younger, I love fame, I love recognition, and thats why this blog exist, I want to be a butterfly that everyone knows. I am very ignorant of what people like to say. I am very arrogant and ego at times that I don’t give a care of what people thinks. (NO its not true, you have to behave all the time in order to survive in a small community like Kuching) I love humans, I love to be the center of attraction when I am out or when I am in a university. I enjoyed having a lot of friends. I like to be surrounded by friends. I like to be special. I am active in almost everything, you named it i got it. I like to do things that people don’t really know, that makes me special. That was my university life. 

8 years later, or I should say 4 years later which is 4 years ago, I realised that fame is not a good thing for me. I admit that I know a lot of people in this small town of Kuching, or I should say a lot of people know me even though I don’t know them. I don’t want this fame anymore but I am the one who put myself into this kind of situation. I have failed relationship, who doesn’t right? I was crazy before after a failed relationship with my ex-bf when I was in university. I get crazy.. I started to drink, I started to go out late, I started to let go of myself just to be happy. Things get even worse when I am in pharmaceutical line, its like a freedom for me, we whole bunch of friends will just go out and have fun drinking after work during outstations. Crazy but happy moments. But that time i was so naive, I thought its okay to get crazy at times but I never consider about people bad-mouthing and all the gossips. I still stay ignorant with the attitude like… who cares! People who know me they know, people who don’t know me, fuck it. This kind of attitude. I never thought it impact so much after years. I was just too silly. 

Rumours spread, it doesn’t even matter if its true or not. They just spread like there’s no tomorrow. To the extent that it can even make up stories. Because kuching is so small, they judge by what they heard, duno after how many hands and dunno how many untrue info. They just spread. especially you are someone that everyone knows. I still dont give a damn about it, super arrogant and it make things worse. YES. I used to club, I used to drink a lot, I used to be everyone happy friends but who doesn’t have their own past? No matter how I wanted to change, how i took initiative to change, how much good i did. They like to gossip about the pass. I take it, because I am the one who originally wanted to be a butterfly. People always say, you do 9 good things and just 1 bad one. The bad one stands out. I take it as my own blame. 

I reanalysed myself, its my fault. I am very sociable if you know or dont even know me. I am always a happy nuts among my friends or anyhow group. But deep down inside me, do you know that I am also a human with feelings? I chose to cover up my sorrow because I dont want to look sad all the time but today it says it all. You are happy? People will say:” This girl happy go lucky one. Not serious.” I am playful at times. Yes sometimes till today I still am, but playful doesn’t mean no serious and can take things lightly. Things that killed me over and over again is relationships. I can’t manage it well.

I learnt how to change myself. Everything start from myself. Behave like one and people will stop talking? Is it true? No its not. But at least I wanted to put effort for myself and not being just playful all the time. Its a very brave first step to step out of my own comfort zone. It took me a lot of courage to overcome it. Best friends, I only have 2. Technically only 1. The trusted only one. Thank you Debbie I know you been through a lot with me. Ups and downs and you never judge, because you know me. No judge, whack is reasonable. “) I’m so glad to have you not judging my past and always by my side supporting me no matter what. 

My problem is.. I have a lot of male friends and I am extremely close with them. Reason is merely because males are less bitchy. But its also the issue that got me into trouble. From today onwards, I will have to start to change for myself. No touching shoulders with males, No laughing loudly in a group. No misbehave among friends. I portray myself as a joker, they treat me like jokes. I behave like a lady, I hope they will too. It took so much for me to finally accept this point. I am reluctant to change how I treat my friends but sometimes changes have to be made in order to change the perspective. Everything start within my own self. 

Like I say, I am like a messy harbour now. No proper ship wanted to dock a messy harbour. So i will redefine myself. As long as I do it right, the right ship will dock. I’m still messy for this whole day, I dont get it, I dont understand, I dont know what have i done to deserve all these comments from unknown strangers. But now i know, people just judge because they know very less. People judge based on my action without thinking twice. Bad comments are more interesting anyway. So from today onwards, letter to myself — I’ll make sure you all have nothing to say about me in the future. Starts from action and not blaming others for my failure in relationship. Its all my fault. I take it. 

People who still stands with me, I will treasure you all 10 times more. People who don’t, I just wanted to say sorry if I mislead you with my actions. My heart is still bleeding but its never too late to change for good. Things happen for a reason. If can mend, I will. If it can’t be mend, I will take it as a very heavy lesson. I will take my own responsibility for all my actions.

Thank you myself for being strong. Not the crying baby anymore.
