Good Char Kuay Teow @ Apollo Marine Parade on 14Oct2020

S$7 apollo ckt add egg add cockles
S$7 apollo ckt add egg add cockles

RI bros bought excellent apollo char kuay teow on 14.10.2020. ^^

added cockles add egg.

it was slightly salty, also commented by KH.

I usually low carbs/no carbs. this i enjoyed and finished everything today.

i think hai kee at telok blangah crescent still the best for me.

SCG had the four seasons chendol. it looked really good and he said so too. i didn’t take as the ckt already too much.

i was also interested in the kueh chap stall. will try that if i come again and not taking ckt.

P.S. though i came back with wife another day. we both felt that it was not so good. also it was expensive, add egg S$1 and add cockles S$2 so a S$4 plate was S$7. we tried the four seasons chendol. it was very good!

Son’s Latte Art on 13Oct2020

son’s latte art
son’s latte art
son’s latte art

son made barista standard latte art beautifully smooth coffee on 13.10.2020 👍👍👍

the key to latte art is in the milk.

there are “intricate steps” to produce microfoam. son was explaining to me. to froth the milk at the top to produce foam and by the side of the milk pitcher to create circulation, until no big bubbles (ie smooth microfoam), then immerse frother to heat up milk.

didn’t sound too difficult but i have not tried my hands thus far, the benefits of not learning so being that got son to make coffee for me. lol! 🙂

it makes a huge difference to the cup of coffee…the microfoam blended completely to produce a silky smooth wonderful cup of coffee…the latte art is a bonus. son has not yet consistently produced the above latte art but for me the reward is in the wonderful cup of coffee, latte art or not.

not sure i fancy the trouble, or just happily resort to my nespresso and enjoy the occasional cup made by son.

Nice Simple Homecooked 3pax Dinner with OCH and Daughter N on 4Oct2020

OCH & daughter N came over for dinner on 4.10.2020.

N & C leaving for HK on wed 7.10.2020 and returning directly to USA afterwards.

the family stay in cupertino and N most recently visited singapore and HK in 2017.

I made-

  1. pumpkin arugula salad
  2. spanish omelette (tortilla)
  3. steamed cod
  4. seafood paella

N especially liked the paella. paella was very flavourful, with tasty chicken stock and lots of vegetables to balance the sweetness. and perfectly al dente.

i made paella (rather than pasta) & western dishes at N’s request as she said always had not great pasta at college, and they have good chinese food in HK. all the dishes finished.

nice simple dinner. had a good chat afterwards with father & daughter on USA and HK.

Wonderful Sumptuous Dinner by Friend’s Daughter on 3Oct2020

13.82km 1hr27.5mins cycle route

went cycling with KH at ECP CP E2 to fort road & back 13.8km in 1hr 27.5mins on 3.10.2020.^^

steamed razor clams on tanhoon

the daughter cooked a sumptuous yummy dinner 👍👍👍 true michelin star meal…most enjoyable👍

first was the razor clams. huge succulent razor clams, done just right, over a bed of tanhoon and lovely garlic soy sauce. excellent!

actually i not supposed to eat the dark colour liver bits – quite true as these absorbed all the chemicals and toxins…but in the past i ate everything, so today lagi finished all before i thought of it…

next was geoduck sashimi, using an ice pack which is better than using ice..very good!

the sauteed teriyaki cod with shimeji mushrooms, or perhaps steamed and drizzled over with sauce, was very good. perfect texture and taste.

青龙菜with shitake added a nice finish.

afterwards we had chinese pears.

very good evening, cycling, wonderful dinner and sharing with friends of many years, recently able to spend more time together.

Good Lunch 5pax RI Bros @ SICC Bukit Cafe on 29Sep2020

had 5pax RI bros lunch @ SICC bukit cafe on 29.9.2020.^^

sicc bukit cafe and 19th hole serves excellent local hawker food, and indian, western, breakfast items etc.

all my RI bros loved the food.

the best had to be char kuay teow…other than hai kee at telok blangah crescent i have not had better hawker char kuay teow.. now the outram road ckt at hong lim quite poor.

ngoh hiang and rojak here also very good. white carrot cake also very good.

hokkien mee is good too but more ordinary like what we get outside.

chendol though a waste of time. at S$4.50 vs S$2.80 just paying for ice cream i didn’t need. will stick to cheng tng and ice kachang next time.
