Dad and wj were having a ball of time watching the ang-mohs trying to figure out how to cook the laksa and prepare congee by themselves! One put congee on her plate, the other sprinkled the laksa leaves onto his dried noodles! (think he didnt know he had to boil the noodles in hot water, pour the laksa gravy then sprinkle the laksa leaves...muahahha)
Many were puzzled, not to mention abit of agony and twisted look , frowns on their foreheads and 'huh' was written all over their faces!

i have decided to use my points to redeem a pair of GV pass to catch a movie at Vivocity. WHY? becos there's so much 'ohs' and 'ahs' about how big their cinemas and screens are. So how can pinky not see it for herself at all as she is the well acclaimed movie buff enthusiast from the past and MISS KNOW ALL about the IN things in life!
ritey, so im here to announced that i have caught 'the Babel' yes yes starring the infamous Brad Bitt and Cate Blanchett with at least 7 nominations to this film. Named Babel...true to its name.
1. a confused mixture of sounds or voices.
2. a scene of noise and confusion.
the scene was shot in Morocco with many scenes happening at one time. One moment you are in morocco with Brad Pitt, his wife got shot accidently at the neck by a young boy who was testing his rifle skills up in the mountains with his goats, the next thing u know, wham! you are in tokyo where a schoolgirl is showing you her bushy vagina and you follow the scene of her taking drugs and alcohol to a head banging loud underground party where all kinds of lust are taking place, next the film brings you to mexico where a rowdy wedding party is taking place, a nanny illegally bringing a pair of american children, got caught in a tangle of old flame who kisses her so passionately inside the house whilst the children mixed with the locals and saw how the young kids twist the chicken's neck and plug the head out right in front of your eyes. WHOA. *puipui! pinky covers her eyes...*
these days, wj has been working pretty late as his meetings only starts after office hours. haha so he usually doesnt have the chance to catch his dinner. So when he comes back this time, i have a dinner all set up for him!
mee sua(2 servings/bundles)
egg (i fried this beforehand)
a few slices of beef (meant for the dogs actually! haha)
half a stick of carrot, sliced (for peanut one actually...)
Boil water, add chicken cube stock, once boiling, add carrots,beef , egg and brocoli.
When most ingredients are cooked (there is a slight colour change to carrots and broccoli), add in mee sua.
Stir for another 3-5mins.

Mei Hong Yuan Desserts (Traditional Desserts) along Temple street is famous for their nutty pastes! I have tried many desserts stalls and many failed to resemble the ones found in HK. But this store almost fits the bill. Try the sesame, almond, peanut paste and walnut paste (quite unique), feels so smooth and i heard the nutrients are really good for health and beauty! They have chilled ones too like the sweet mango pomelo sago ($3.50), herbal jelly (cooling effects) egg pudding and milk pudding (good for beauty) and beancurd with gingko nuts. And the little ones will love the mango pudding!
~have your just desserts now...
