I’m sorry about the loss of your grandpa. Enjoy yourself while you are in S’pore!
I know it’s different, but the fried dough reminds me of prata. Prata and tulang merah are absolutely my fave food in Singapore :D~

Thanks for your wishes.. 🙂
Yes it’s like prata but prata’s more pan fried and this one’s deep fried so it ends up ‘lighter’ . Both are SO GOOD!

Island Creamery is interesting. my sis bought the baked alaska and a few ice- cream. One of the ice cream was burnt xx, cant remember what. It was a….. unique taste. :p

Ohhhhh I was looking at the baked alaska! Looked yum. Pity about the dud ice cream though!

the ice cream looks good 🙂 I’d eat lots of ice cream if I lived in Sg since it is so hot there!
Haha yes, precisely, it must be one of the most popular foods here 😛

“It shocks me that Singaporeans are so unhealthy, yet are so friggin’ skinny”
i think it’s the weather, and also the stress level there.. hehehe..
Hehe maybe sweating it all out is good! Not good on the skin and hair though 🙁

I almost always pass by there once a week, and yes, I love Island Creamery. I even have the number stored on my mobile.

HAPPY NATIONAL DAY

You should try daily scoop at sunset way for their ice-cream too. They do flavours like lychee martini and baileys choclate chip ice-cream. YUM
posted on August 9, 2006 at 3:28 am
Ooooo they sound great! Will have to keep an eye out for it 🙂

If you like chocolate ice cream, you have to try the one from Awfully Chocolate (there’s one near Serene Centre). It’s not cheap (think around $13 for a small tub) but sooooo good. Really rich and decadent.

Ooo I wonder if my cousin’s tried it, she’s a real chocoholic!

i love island creamery too (and my favourite flavour is teh tarik).
i think singaporeans manage to stay skinny also because we don’t actually eat hawker food every day. at least i don’t know many people who do 😡
also, our kind of skinny-ness isn’t very healthy as it’s not as though we have lean mean bodies but skinny flabby ones. haha.
posted on August 9, 2006 at 3:38 pm
Ooo… i’m eating hawker food every day *oops*
But yeah, people that eat at home do have healthy food..

well you’re excused since you’re back only for short periods 🙂 i would totally do the same if i were you…

I love you tiao!!!!!!! OMG… I crave it!! We used to have it with this soy drink – not soy milk, much yummier version. It’s called ‘dou jiang’ in Chinese, I think it roughly translates to soy syrup? I don’t know, something like that, it has a thicker consistency than soy milk and it’s sweet and yummy. We would dip the you tiao in it (when the you tiao is still hot but the dou jiang is cold), such a delicious breakfast!! I miss authentic chinese food… *sigh*

it’s TOTALLY unavailble in AU, as far as I know.. I miss it so much 🙁
I think I know of that soy drink you’re talking about.. yum!
