It was rather a quick decision, when CK, Pat and me agreed to fly south to Singapore end of March for a short 2 days 1 night trip. Reason is because Nick was there for business trip alone and since we can bunk in his hotel room, accomodation’s issue settled! It’s been many years ago since I stepped into the island and that was a brief, few hours excursion.
We took Tiger Airways (one of Singapore’s budget airline) as they were having promotion (can’t remember the price, sorry but it was very reasonable) and within one hour, we’re walking on the land of the Lion City. You can er… say this was my first trip to Singapore, no kidding.
And here’s our first meal in the city.
According to CK’s friend, Danny, the food on the island are basically tasteless and not worth mentioning (which were rather hard for me to believe after I watched several Singapore food programmes on AFC). He, however strongly suggest Xin Wang HK cafe to us.
I, unfortunately was having a bad mouth ulcer that day, hence I just ordered Nissin noodle. Pat had almost the same stuff like mine, so I just don’t bother to post the pictures here. CK’s pork chop however, came in huge portion with two pieces of pork fillet, fries, baked beans and salad (SGD 8.50). Taste wise, he said it was nice as I didn’t try it.
Danny’s favourite Curry Chicken with Bread (SGD 7.50). He insisted that I try this although I was having mouth ulcer. The bread were fluffy and the chicken curry, very fragrant with just the right level of spiciness.
AS for dessert, we had the tallest Mango Snow Ice with condensed milk (SGD 6.90)! Shaved ice topped with mango puree at the base, mango cubes, mango jelly, mango ice cream and condensed milk. We swept everything in a jiffy!
