:+: New Year's Eve's Eve :+:

A lil celebration for the coming New Year over at my aunty's house.

After the superb dinner, we had some wine and cakes from Coffeebean. We got both Tiramisu and Chocolate Cheese cakes.

I don't like the Tiramisu at all. It's just thick layers of cakes and small amount of cream cheese which tastes like orange. yerkkkzz..

At least the Chocolate Cheese cake saves the night from the Tiramisu NIGHTMARE.. It's very rich in its chocolatey and it's cheeseyness = YUMMY! Each mouth of this just easily dance around in your mouth. It's sooo smooth and creamy. Just the perfect types of cheese cake i Loved.

P/S: I will never get Tiramisu from Coffeebean ever again. =/

:+: Naruwan Special :+:

What a special day...

It's just one of those days I get to sit in Angel's ride. ~^.^~

Met up with ahGe and Lionel at RH Plaza. We decided to have lunch at Naruwan Special.

Naruwan Special is one of the sorta standard cafe shop. The price for their food and drinks are average cafe price.

Angel's Crab Fried Rice

The Fried Rice is very nice. In foochow, we normally say 'cha eh kau', meaning that it's fried good enough with the right fire. =/ Doesn't sound right. What I'm trying to say is.. err.. It's delicious. =) My 'philisophy' of a good fried rice : "The eggs should be cooked not wet and raw plus, the rice is not 'over-fried', no burnt smell from the wok, distributes the salt and pepper evenly without having one part of the rice tasting F. salty, not too much vege and meat; rice is the main character here, and definitely no freaking Ajinamoto!! So artificial. Original taste is very nice and fresh."

:+: Aloha Baby! :+:

There's this interesting bakery shop at Jalan Song called Aloha Bakery. It is at the same row as the new Upwell Supermarket.

You can smell the delicious pastry smell once you get down from your car.

I couldn't resist the temptation of having one of their freshly baked BEEF PIE!!

When I walked to the counter, I saw...

PRETZELS!! The first bakery shop that sells PRETZELS!!

Naked Green Beans

Sweet Green Beans Porridge (Lek Tau Suan) or in Anna's language; Naked Green Beans Soup

I found this recipe in

  • 300g skinned, split green beans
  • 1 fresh orange
  • 100g rock sugar
  • 100g castor sugar
  • 2 litres water
  • 2 pandan leaves, knotted
  • 4 teaspoons water chestnut (ma tai) powder, mixed with some water into a solution Chinese cruisers, sliced thinly
Soak the beans in water for 30 minutes. Drain and steam on high heat for 20 minutes.

Peel the orange and reserve flesh for some other use. Slice the orange peel.

Bring the rock sugar, castor sugar, water and pandan leaves to a boil. Add the beans, orange peel and water chestnut solution. Cook until the soup thickens slightly and has a translucent look.

Serve with the thinly sliced Chinese crullers.
