went with 2 close friends to watch stephen chow’s mermaid at GV Bishan yesterday on 3.3.2016.
maybe it was a lightweight movie. a friend & i talked over whatsapp whether to watch spotlight (best picture oscar) or revenant ( leonardo dicarpio best actor oscar) at shaw lido & decided that we would have a light-hearted relax show this time. 🙂
i quite enjoyed the show. for me it was not slapstick, quite respectable in fact, & nothing so irreverent as kungfu hustle. i not much into stephen chow’s show like 1 of my friends, but kungfu hustle i like actually. 🙂
after the show we walked over to kim san leng food centre.
it’s a coffeeshop, and a huge success story. the guy pulled in the good hawker stalls, so it’s crowded, good traffic even though its along the food & away from junction 8. 🙂
i like this place & the food, though they are not cheap.
the ngoh hiang was pretty good. 🙂
4 items for S$7.50.
well, sicc’s bukit cafe S$9.50 ngoh hiang (6 items) pretty good too, maybe the sauce better than bukit cafe.
c/w the S$22 indian rojak at ayer rajah food centre (which was excellent), price also ok. i like the indian rojak a lot better though. 🙂
yu kee’s braised duck was good too. i don’t eat this often these days but this was good – flavourful, smooth, not tough.
S$10 for quarter duck with drumstick i guess not that ex too.
the S$3 kueh chap very tiny plate, but also quite tasty. what can you buy with S$3 these days?
my friend queued up to buy a S$11 plate chicken from the bugis street ming kee chicken rice. he could not recall the price of the beg, which i guess was S$6. we had 2 rice to share among 3.
chicken was good, but nothing special for me really. no much different from xin ji 新记chicken rice at mei ling food centre.
overall the lunch would come to about S$38 for 3, that should be consider ex. maybe we just ate too much…lol! ^^
i like the duck best, chicken & ngoh hiang a toss up. but chicken have to queue so i guess ngoh for my choice. haha! 🙂
