Celebration Lunch!

I had my photo shoot for my corporate portfolio the whole morning..
Pretty tiring arranging all the items for photo shoot.. but I must say it was fun!!!
Lunch was a celebration at Siam Kitchen at Causeway Point!



Yummy food from Thai green curry to chicken satay to green mango salad.. and more!

Not forgetting free flow of pineapple rice!

Perhaps, the only lacklustre dish was the chicken wings! Uncooked and bloody!

Round #2 at the Singapore Flyer!

After having the Indonesian food at Marina Square, headed down to O, Learys at the Singapore Flyer to chill out...
With my bottle of Hoegaarden:
Other finger food to munch on:


With a live band and nice songs, what a better way for a mid week Wednesday chill out!

Authentic Indonesian Food , anyone?

Went to this newly opened Indonesian restaurant, Pondok Sunda, located at Marina Square for dinner..
It's part of a chain based in Indonesia, and this outlet at Marina Square happens to be their first flagship store in Singapore...
The food is pretty authentic...
Started out with this refreshing chocolate avocado drink:


They even take the effort to serve their rice in traditional receptacles:

Even their sambal chilli comes in small stone bowls:

Their signature dish, the dancing deep fried gourami:

Japanese Lunch

My lunch timings are getting pretty irregular....




Had this Japanese bento set meal at nearly 3pm today...

Hope it doesnt affect my biological clock!

Advertlets: Cash Out #2

Finally reached the minimum amount required to cash out on Advertlets, so I decided to cash out today!

I wonder how long they will actually take to send me the money this time and whether there will be as much red tape and delay like the first time!

Thai Food!

Had Thai food at Lerk Thai for lunch today.. as there was some errands to run today....


Must say that this outlet has pretty interesting dishes, like this green curry fried rice, which is rice stir fried with green curry chicken:


and of course the traditional green curry:



What I enjoyed was perhaps the desserts, good old steamed tapioca with coconut cream:One thing to note is that this restaurant does not serve FREE iced water, which is kinda weird to me, especially when Thai food can be quite spicy...

So if you have to order drinks, try their lemon grass drink:

Queue for Shell...

I kinda expected a long jam outside all Shell fuel stations today after getting a sms about the promotion today, whereby their FuelSave 95/98 would be going for just $1 a litre!

Would say that the queue was long and caused loads of traffic condition around the island today....

Just take a look at these pictures:








If you ask me, such a promotional stint that causes negative externalities to other road users should be frowned upon...
Bad traffic jams.
Pollution of stationary vehicles in the queues.
so much for all their campaigns about planting 100,000 native trees @ Southwest..

Grilled Chicken Leg:

Smoked Duck Pizza:

And to wash things down, a cool mug of German beer:

Safety First...

Got myself a pair of safety boots after my previous pairs of leather shoes all gave way to the wet and cold work environment..

I guess.. this pair will be giving me some comfort since it has a higher base...

What ever happened to my Maybank Cheque?

I dropped it into the quick cheque deposit last Friday, but was told by the staff that they require a signature on the back of the cheque as it is in foreign currency.

Was told by a staff who called me that the cheque would be mailed to me...

But till today... no signs of my missing cheque!

Thinking of new hosting..

Many people have been asking me to switch my blog hosting services from the current Blogger platform to a domain of my own! Have been thinking about this for a long time, especially so since this blog of mine has been up and running for quite a long time too...

So, how do I ensure I get reliable hosting services? Was told of this Web Hosting provider, and when I checked out the site, their rates start from as low as $1.9, and they have a HELM control panel included, have Windows 2003 hosting servers, support ColdFusion hosting and MySQL 5.1.

Really thinking.. should I move over?

Mixing work with pleasure...


Sometimes, mixing work with pleasure is not bad an idea, especially on a holiday!

Went to Unique Seafood today with my colleagues...

Rolls and rolls of tanks greeted us:


Check out the huge Australian King Crabs:Weird looking shell fish:
Alaska King Crab:


After selecting our seafood.. it was time for us to decide how we wanted them done....


So entering Owen restaurant, we selected the non-seafood item.. like this box thorn vegetable with 3 kinds of eggs:

Yummy bamboo clams:

Abalone with XO sauce:
Steamed flounder:
A type of interesting shellfish:

For dessert, had this herbal jelly:

Something interesting we saw on the way out, coconut crab (yes, that white thing next to the plate is indeed coconut, and its alive):
