i have finally plucked up my courage to cut my hair!
ta-duh! okay, i didnt have enuff courage to do a bob one but not everyone is suitable for Mrs Beckham Bobcut, and I WILL NOT SUCCUMB to fashion!
So here's the new me with shorter bangs (as always...dunno why, all hairstylists recommend that i have bangs) and shoulder-length hair....
i didnt perm my hair, it's just naturally curls..and i coloured my hair so now it doesnt look so black but with tinge of red and browns....okie i'm still adjusting...miss my long hair though...

see! we can make birthday cakes from donuts and old chang kee. hahahha...Thanks to our lovely colleagues and special requests, we ordered 2 big boxes of rainbow-coloured donuts, some with funny stuffings and toppings, and one even looked like a poop!
Guess old time favourites like Old Chang Kee was clearly winning the race as it was snapped up quickly and swiftly by many. Soon all was left were the donuts. Not that it didnt taste great but i think most people favour the salty snacks...just think of jelly beans and potato chips...i think i'll pop the chips anytime sooner than the jelly beans.

Ritey, above are just some photos of true evidence that this is the one 'palace' that needs quite abit of waiting. Starting business at 1030am but u bet business hasn't started, the queue has already begun forming!
It was mother's day and I decided that it was time to try somewhere new once more. Enough of the Red Star which my mum loves patronising on sunday mornings. I know she loves their push-carts, cantonese speaking waitresses (these days are china ones now though), the 80s decor, terrible carpet and plastic dishes.
i've heard quite a few reviews on this particular Yan Palace. So it's time people for miss pinky here to wait their infamous queue and try their famous dimsum. We woke up about 10am and reached the restaurant at 11am. Parking at the multi-storey carpark was simple enough and locating the place was easy. Just follow the crowd.
And oh, the people here are so thoughtful!!! See they cut up all the fried stuff for you to share with your family and friends! Bonus brownie points.
Banana Shrimp: ooh this one is good. But i cant say it's the best i've eaten. Good that the shrimp is whole and fresh, but the banana taste wasn't strong enough, probably the banana wasnt too ripe. Crust was light enough but still oily.
Mango Shrimp: Kudos to the chef in whipping out so many different crusts!!! hahah....this one looks just like a bird's nest from the outside. On the insides, oozing with mango puree and small bits of mango, u can see the whole shrimp. Thumbs up for value for money.
opps, left out the HarGao and Siew Mai, but just to let you people know, steam items takes really long to come in this restaurant. Maybe that's why i forgot to take the photos....haha tired of waiting and when it does come, we just want to eat them!
Price: for so many dimsums feeding 5 mouths, the total bill came up to approx $80. Not bad...value for money.

ps: btw, when we were halfway thru our meal, there was a power drop! IT WAS PITCH BLACK!!!! even the emergency light went off after awhile....tsk tsk...really old lah this restaurant. When the lights came back on after 20mins or so, everyone clapped like it was a magic show. Hello people...we were missing out on the lights and not an entertainment show!
