With Damien I remember some years back, MM Lee once mentioned that Singapore may merge with Malaysia in the future. This created such an uproar among the Malaysians, who simply don’t see any reason why they would want Singapore back with Malaysia. Culturally, Singapore and Malaysia are very close and it used to be that […]

Kok Sen Restaurant: Just how do you define Cze Char?
With Damien, iwatch_ueat, smart, liverpool and Tag Big Prawn Bee Hoon Soup $11.50 What’s the difference between a Cze Char and a Restaurant?

With iwatch_ueat and liverpool I never really got used to Lattes and Cappuccinos even though I spent seven years in Australia. We even have one of those expresso machines at home at one stage and went crazy over frothing the milk. But at the end of the day, when the dust settles, out comes the […]
Mr Teh Tarik: I wonder what the tarik does to the tea?
I wonder if Tariking the Teh actually makes a difference to the taste itself. Apart from cooling it down, and making the foam on top, does the extra air in the tea actually change its taste? Has anyone tried comparing a cup of tea before and after the Tarik? Do let us know. Mr Teh […]
This Stall is Closed! Atlantic Cod $16.50 The French have Foie Gras, the British have Fish n Chips. I always find it strange how two countries situated so close to each other can have such a difference in food culture. The British seem to lack imagination when it comes to food and Fish n Chips […]

To read Part one of this 2 part blog, please click HERE With smart, liverpool and iwatch_ueat I was amazed that there was such a marked difference between the styles of Soya Sauce Chicken between the 2 shops.
