thanks to each and everyone of you for making my birthday special.
6th to 10th sept. 1st bday present.
haha...sony bmg gave me a birthday present in advance. trip to taipei to meet jay chou (and eat lotsa yummy food)!
i must recommend these great eating places. next time u visit taipei, check them out.
1) Kiki (蓝心湄's restaurant)
苍蝇头 － don't ask me why it's called that. sounds unappetizing, but it's totally the opposite. chopped up veggies stir fried with minced meat, chilli and (i think) black beans...oishii!
苦瓜炒咸蛋 － even for those of u who don't take bitter gourd, you might just fall in love with this coz it's just so tasty...
老皮嫩肉 － my personal favourite. it's just...heavenly. i've never tasted tofu so soft, so smooth, so...mesmerizing.
乌梅汁 － best plum juice i've tasted so far...tho some people may find it a tad bit too sour.
beautiful decor, wonderful ambience, and most importantly, great food.
what a spread! we ordered grilled 鱼肚 (which was fat and oily and sinful but so so yummy), sashimi, tofu, deep fried prawns and this thing which has the skin of a soon kueh but is filled with meat and prawn stuffing:
was kinda worried the bill might come up to quite a lot, but in total it was less than S$20 per person. yay!
3) for dessert, check out 东区粉圆冰店. there's only one outlet, and it's so famous, u probably just have to mention the name and anyone can direct u there.
great indulgence on a hot day...粉圆＋冰＋a whole lotta toppings to choose from, including 红豆，番薯，花生，仙草...was told that even during winter, business is great coz they serve hot desserts! ooh...can almost imagine...sipping 热仙草 on a cold winter's day...the steam warming my cheeks and the sweet fluid flowing down my throat...aah. 幸福是简单的。
P.S. thanks to Susan, Zhiyuan and Shili for bringing us around!
13th sept. 1st birthday surprise.
scrumptious dinner with a bunch of super sweet and super nice people...at a lovely place tucked away in the west of singapore...up on a hilltop tower...breath-taking views and mouth-watering cuisine...what more can i ask for?
14th sept. 2nd and 3rd birthday surprise.
an angel came by to wish me happie birthday, and brought me the cake i've been craving for...then at work dear dear Andy walked into the studio with a cake, and together with Gege, Weibin, Junxin and Huishi jie, we had a mini party.
after work, it was time for another birthday feast!
mash potato with crab. must try!
hidden high up on mount emily, wild rocket at hangout hotel is another great place to go if u drive (or take a cab) and wanna enjoy a good meal far from the hustle and bustle of city traffic. only bad thing about the place is that being small and cosy makes it easily crowded and noisy during dinner hours...which isn't very conducive for lovebirds hoping for a more quiet and romantic ambience...
after dinner, home sweet home...where another birthday cake awaits!
am grateful that after all these years, we still celebrate each member's birthday every year as a family. :)
