A Wonderful Sunday

After a full day of elections, it’s time for my mind to wander back to Singapore. I was basically out 30min after I woke up and came back 12 hours and 30 minutes after that. Maybe it’s a celebration for the outcome of the General Elections.

I left hall at 10am to go to Tiong Bahru in an attempt to try the Wow Wow West Western Food with my gf along with yong ren, pei yin, wai teng and gang. When we reached there, the stall was closed! But we ate at the food court nevertheless and tried other things offered there. I ordered a Lotus Leaf Chicken Rice for $2.80 which was just so-so. Not too bad but not very good either.

I also ordered a Bo Bo Cha Cha for desserts after a failed attempt to get Tau Fu Fah (it was sold out at 2 different stalls). It's the first time eating an iced bo bo cha cha

I even got try the the carrot cake that my girlfriend ordered which was actually quite good and we ordered a wantan mee from the stall in front of us to be shared among us cause we saw lots of people ordering from them.

After lunch, we went to catch a movie in Tiong Bahru Plaza. My girlfriend and I watched Water Horse, the Legend of the Deep which was basically something like Free Willy, just that, Free Willy was better. But it wasn't that bad though. It was quite alright. The rest of the people watched 10,000 B.C. instead and they thought it was just so-so too...

Yin Sin and I departed with the rest of the people as they wanted to go back but we have dinner plans later on with Elaine and gang. Initially, we wanted to eat at Shokudo at Raffles City but they denied our reservation as the crowd was too big on weekends after 6pm. So, we end up having dinner at Botak Jones at Clementi instead.

During the waiting time, we decided to get donuts from Donut Factory at Raffles City. It was partly because Ya Ying requested Yin Sin to get donuts from JP on the way back. I was expecting a very long queue there but surprisingly, it wasn't long at all. Could be due to another major competitor from J & Co just a few stalls away. Anyway, we bought our 12 assorted donuts in a box for $11.

There was a leak from the apple cinnamon donut cause the box was tilted while i was carrying it. *sigh* We ate one of the leaked apple cinnamon at a resting area while waiting...

Dinner at Botak Jones was awesome. Partly, it was the good food and another part, was the company together with me. It's always very funny and enjoyable with them and most of the time, we'll all be laughing till our eyes shed tears. The hearty laughters would give me a stomach ache too.... hahah..

For the food, I ordered Rosemary Lamb Chop (300gm) and on the table, there was the all famous Fish and Chips, Botak Burger and Thai Chicken Burger. We didn't order the Cajun Chicken cause they were out of stock and we had to wait 30min or so if we were to order them. Anyway, botak jones's menu is very funny. The comments that they make. There was one entry where there was this Swanky Franky Sausage and its description would say, "The food is named after a guy called swanky franky. He was a hot dog wrapped in bacon ......." *laughs out loud*
We spent the rest of the night chatting and laughing all the way till 10 plus from our initial meet up at 645pm at clementi station.

A very light-heartening day it was... It's just all to prepare me to endure another long week of mundane routines and a long week of work.. Monday Blues, anyone?
