My 2nd Big Day #7 – We went to Club Chinois for Food Tasting

It’s 5 months more to the customary day and the least I should do (even though it is a simple affair) is to get a venue for the small cozy lunch. I’ve been procrastinating about this after meeting some obstacles with Peony Jade and Grand Shanghai. Finally!

X-Ploring in Bahagia – New Zi Char Restaurant with Air-Con

The weather is so hot we’ll either eat in or look for places with air-con. The nearest air-conditioned place to our place is this new zi char restaurant – 小青岛. I guess it is run by some Chinese cooks as their style of cooking reminds me of when I am in Shanghai!

X-Living in Bahagia – Chuck and the Bamboo Stalk

The fairytale story tells of a man named Chuck who was sent to the market one day by his wife to sell their collection of whiskey. As Chuck proceeded to the market he met a stranger who offered to trade four “magic seeds” for the whiskey. Chuck accepted the trade and returned home with the seeds in his pocket.

As Chuck slept, the seeds germinated and a gigantic bamboo stalk grew in their place by morning.

X-Ploring from Bahagia – Toa Payoh Hiang Ji Roasted Meat and Noodle House

Tucked away in a little corner opposite the Toa Payoh hub, we decided to try out this stall while we were there to run an errand. The roasted meat looks bright and fresh from the glass panels.
