      *nods* FULLY agree! It’s my favourite burger ever.. 2nd is McDonald’s quarter pounder :)~

        The quarter pounder isn’t as good as the whooper imho! I always ask for the pickles to be removed and extra onions to be added. What about those Mos Burger burgers?

          I LOVE Mos burgers! But they’re not available in AU 🙁

          I like the regular cheeseburger and the ice milk tea :)~

    OMG. Bt Timah market has the best carrot cake. There are a few stores there so you must find the correct one. Its the one at the end of the entire row, near the seats (there’s another one in the row, but at the middle there). Also, they have fantastic hokkien mee, satay beehoon and fish porridge (this is on your left when you come in from the main entrance).

    When I moved away, I really missed all that, but I guess it helps that school is nearby. 🙂

      Ooo i can’t remember which one we had.. I THINK it was the stall with the really plain blue sign, at the end of the row. Not sure if it’s the one you lik too!

      My dad likes the Satay behoon and fish porridge that you referred to 🙂 I haven’t had hokkien mee yet in SG!!!! 🙁

      Dunno if you’ve tried it.. but I like Martabak even MORE!! Its’ the Indonesian version and has cheese/chocolate/condensed milk/etc all in there.. so good :)~

        Really? How weird.. Murtabak, Martabak.. they sound almost the same but are different food.

        You know what all these apam balik, ming jiang kueh, murtabak, martabak talk reminds me of..? Those small and round Japanese ‘cakes’ with a choice of crumbed peanuts, red bean, chocolate, peanut butter fillings..

        Mm, all these food talk is making me delirious!

    Wow. that does look very nice. Yong Tau Foo (in canto that’d be “yerng” tofu) looks like food that have tofu stuffed inside, like eggplant with tofu, or tzit gwar (that long hairy melon – sometimes my parents scoop out the seeds and stuff it with meat and tofu then pan fry it.) or just generally food that’s been mixed with tofu. It’s delicious and tasty esp it’s got sauce poured over it.
