Had a quick lunch in the Chinatown area. I’d decided I wanted some BBQ Pork & Wonton Noodles. Just as they finished cooking up my order, I panicked and said “Ooooh! I actually wanted it dry!” since I’ve now discovered I much prefer the dry version than soup noodles. To my relief, then nice guy there smiled and said “Yeah it’s all dry”. WHEW!!
Disaster averted, I happily mixed in the sambal chilli with the noodles and added a few scoops of soup. It came with BBQ pork, 3 fat little wontons in the soup, and the obligatory veggies. I liked the noodles, they weren’t too salty and had a nice bite. The BBQ pork (“char siew”) was really thinly sliced, just the way I like it! And the wontons tasted great, all meaty and juicy. Had my meal with a Chilled Soya bean drink, which I always crave whenever I’m in Australia! Yum :)~

Mum and I also got hair cuts at Shunji Matsuo, this ritzy Japanese hair salon. Amusingly, it’s considered really $$ in Singapore, but the price is the same as el cheapo/crap hairdressers in Australia! And people wonder why I never cut my hair in AU.. I’d rather get my yearly (!) haircut in Singapore! Anyway, our hair cutter/stylist was Qing and she was fab. She really took the time and effort to cut our hair and we’re really pleased with both our cuts. Mine’s slightly shorter (I told her I wanted to keep the length) and layered so it’s bouncier. Mum’s is pretty drastically different – she has that sort of really trendy futuristic bob, like the one Charlize Theron had in Aeon Flux. Short and bobbed at the back, then tapered down towards the face. It’s cool!! Ummm no photos but you can kinda see it in future photos of us 🙂
