One of my NS friends and I arranged to meet up with each other since it had been a while since we last went out for dining together and both of us loves Japanese food. Met him together with Rachel at City Hall as we initially decided to eat over at Buffet Town located at basement level of Raffles City on Friday (5 July 2013) but change of plan as there was a super long queue for this place. In the end we decided to make do with Sushi Tei as it was of kind of a better standard in terms of their Japanese dishes.
The queue over at this restaurant was always quite long during the evening time and it was the same when we were there. waited for almost 20 to 30 minutes just to be allocated with a table seat.
Without much delay, we started to order our dishes as all of us were quite hungry by the time we got a table seat. The staff were friendly even though we can see that they were busy serving all the crowds dining at Sushi Tei. The dishes were served without much delay and most importantly, they were freshly made as what I had requested during the ordering of dishes.
This was one of the reason why I am always coming back to this restaurant for dining as they served quality food. If there was any wrong about the dish like not very fresh, you can ask the staff to get another one for you (I did requested change of dishes when they served me dishes from the belt which was not very fresh anymore).
I was lucky enough to be able to loan my sister’s car on Saturday (29 June 2013) so had arrange to meet up with the guys (Michael and Mingyan) for a day of photo shooting time together. Our first stop was to go Labrador Park as it was known as a place for taking nice photos.
There were quite a few families over there relaxing while having fun with their children and for us, we just walk and took some photos here and there.
An Abandoned Machine Gun Post from World War II
As per our history, Singapore leaders pointed most of the attack resources at the sea while the enemy attacked us from the back. So in this case, this gun post did not really served its purpose during the world war II period to protect Singapore.
Time always goes so fast when you are having fun or enjoying your holiday season. It was Sunday (26 May 2013) and it was our last day (To be exact, half day) over at Malacca before we need to drive back to Johor and I need to get back to Singapore.
We eaten our breakfast buffet at hotel level 1 as usual before going back to our hotel room for a final pack up before checking out of hotel.
One of the car having a flat battery and Rachel’s father decided to use another car (We have a total of 2 cars driving to Malacca) and bring all of us to one of the nearby Japanese restaurant named “Ohan Japanese Restaurant Sdn Bhd” which Rachel’s parent went for their dinner last night and feels that they were nice and wish to eat again for lunch.
This restaurant accept Credit Card payment only if your bill was above RM80.00
After just meeting with Rachel on Friday evening for dinner cum drinking session, we meet up with each other on Saturday (11 May 2013) again as we need to go Bugis to survey on some of the things which we had been preparing to buy before planned to go back to Malaysia to have dinner together with Rachel’s Family.
So we meet at up Jurong East before proceeding to Bugis. Before proceeding to shop around, we stopped by the Bugis hawker center for a lunch first. There were quite a lot of people having their meals there as from what I know there were some very popular stall over at these area and some of them even being interviewed by some of the food critics shows.
Black Carrot Cake
Forgotten which stall are more popular ones, we just proceed to look around the place and buy anything that caught our eyes. In the end, I bough black carrot cake (Aka “Chai Tao Kway”) which was not well prepared as I was still able to taste that raw black soya sauce not really mixed well with the carrot cake though the carrot cake by itself was soft and powdery (Did not put any spring onions on top of it like most of the other carrot cake stall too). Rachel on the other hand bought Mee Rebus from one of the Malay stall (There are many more selling the same stuff).
The days went so fast and it was Thursday (9 May 2013) again. Meeting up with Rachel as usual for our dinner and this time we decided to go Woodlands causeway point shopping mall for our dinner instead of going town as it was nearlier to Rachel’s house.
Fresh Sashimi which you can buy and the chef will slice it for you on the spot
The price are cheaper than most of the Japanese restaurants
It was a Friday (26 April 2013) night and Rachel had an facial appointment where I will always wait for her before having dinner together. As it was still very early before she needs to go for the appointment, we decided to go over to Aussie Roll Cafe which sells ready made sushi rolls. We had been passing by this place but never really went in to try out their dishes so this time round, we decided to try it out since it is still quite early.
Restaurant front view of Aussie Roll
A look from the front shows that they were being featured in one of the food critic magazine/newspaper as there are some print out and photocopied cutting being shown on the glass wall. There are not much tables and chairs inside the restaurant but these was not an issue as there are many tables (public usage) outside of the restaurant as these were some sort of min food court over at this place. A lot of people bought their sushi rice as take away and they will help customer to cut those long sushi into bite size (You can choose to eat it as a whole without cutting too).
Nice and attractive display of their sushi rice rolls
Both Rachel and I have been busy these few weeks windows shopping and buying spree which we have been enjoying even though it is quite tiring. It is just another Saturday (16 March 2013) and we had decided to go for another usual windows shopping trip which we decided to go Plaza Singapura where quite a lot of people mention Spotlight is selling some portable Helium gas which interest us a lot. In order to find out the truth, we decide to go there to take a look.
Out of our disappointment, we did not see any portable helium gas tank being sold and got the news that it is actually sold out and the sales do not know when the stock will be coming back.
Having unable to see that, we just continue to shop around Plaza Singapura as they just recently did a renovation work with a new expansion wing (Just like Jurong Point). Time goes quite fast and it is around evening time by the time we felt a bit tired and decide to find a place to sit down while waiting for Rachel’s sisters who is meeting us for dinner. As we are a bit hungry, Rachel suggested to go eat Fruit Tart at Fruit Paradise as she knows that I always wanted to try out the fruit tart though have no chance to try it out (Rachel eaten these way before me. 😡 )
Fruit Paradise is located at level 4 Japanese corner at the far end between Ajisen Ramen and Kazokutei. The whole area is called “Tokyo Walker” and based on the company stated in my bill, it should be under Bachmann Japanese Restaurant Pte Ltd.
One can seat in any of these restaurant and order the dishes from the other restaurant next to it (Interesting and space saving) though we are lucky enough to be able to sit at the tables within Fruit Paradise restaurant. The fruit tarts being on display looks so pretty and tasty that I always been wanting to try out.
