Aston's Specialties

I've been wanting to try out aston's for the longest time! Thank goodness they have finally opened an outlet in town and it's now so much easier to come by!

Baby brought me here for a mini celebration after my RWAR exam!

The Cathay
2 Handy Road
Singapore 229233

Tel: 6887 5889

It involved quite a bit of waiting for their mains but it was well worth it! Both Baby and i ordered the chicken and sausage combo ($10.90), which is a little more expensive than the other chicken and fish mains (less than 10 bucks)~

I chose teriyaki chicken for my combo, and baked potato and potato salad (potato overload haha!) for my sides. The teriyaki sauce was a little strong for my liking but the chicken's really well-grilled and remained tender and moist! Loved the sausages and sides as well!

Baby chose fried chicken for his combo, and fries and coleslaw for his sides. I loved his fried chicken more than my teriyaki chicken! In fact, i loved it so much more that i exchanged my teriyaki chicken with his fried chicken heh heh...~

The seasoning for the fried chicken's great and the cutlet was fried to perfection! Was really tender and moist as well! We would have liked the fries better if it was chunky fries or wedges though!

Such a filling and satisfying meal! Prices are rather afforable and there's no service charge (just GST)~ Do note that they charge 30 cents for plain water though!

As a mini reward for completion of the RWAR project assignment and exam, Baby surprised me with my favourite tidbit!:


Sticks of goodness!

These are so yummy! Do not be duped by other brands; only this brand of french fries sticks is nice! I know this through personal experience! ^_^

Hong Kong Kim Gary Restaurant

The 2 ah siaos and i got together for a belated birthday lunch for ah siao milo! Fickle-minded ah siao milo finally decided on kim gary - the place with snaking queues every weekend!

We went on a weekday afternoon, so there were plenty of tables for us to choose from! Time to find out whether their food's really that good to command such crowds!

1 HarbourFront Centre Walk
Singapore 098585

Tel: 6376 8183

Ah siao milo and i both ordered their set lunches which came with a soup and drink. The soup that day was cream of corn - i didn't expect much but it was really diluted and bland!

My set lunch's main dish was steak with spaghetti (set lunch - $9.80)~ The portion's pretty big; i couldn't finish it! The steak was tender enough but very chewy and i got so tired of chewing! They were both laughing at me coz i looked so sian and tired while chewing the steak!

I got pretty sick of the tomato sauce after the first few mouthfuls coz the sauce tasted like the sweet and sour sauce in... 咕噜肉 (sweet and sour pork)!

Ah siao mion ordered a la carte and her dish has a really long name - soup noodles with minced pork and vegetable wanton ($5.90)~

She reported that the soup was pretty salty and it made her very thirsty... MSG eh?

Ah siao milo ordered a set lunch too; her cheese baked rice (set lunch - $11.80) took so long to come!

Since she is so biased towards kim gary, she said that her cheese baked rice was "mind-blowingly tantalisingly freakingly fantastic"! -_-"

We ordered french fries to share! There were several condiments to choose from and since we were feeling adventurous, we went for the special mix ($3.60)~

When we each took a bite, we were like CHEY! Haha coz the so-called special mix just tasted like the 椒盐 (chilli pepper and salt) flavouring powder they use for those shihlin-style chicken cutlets!

My iced horlicks which was included in my set lunch - i liked it coz it wasn't diluted!

Ah siao milo's iced almond milk - forgot to ask her how it was, but considering her biasness towards kim gary.........

Ah siao mion had to order a drink coz her soup noodles made her so thirsty! Her fresh honey lemon with aloe vera ($4.20) was almost as expensive as her main dish and hardly any aloe vera to be found!

In a nutshell, i don't understand why they can draw such long queues on weekends!

Ah siao milo jio-ed me for kbox-ing on her birthday itself (the week before our kim gary lunch)! I love kbox-ing in 2s coz no one can snatch the mic from me already wahaha!

It feels so shiok to be a student coz with $14.50 nett, we can sing for 5 hours from 2pm to 7pm, and all these food included!:

Chips and drinks!

5 tempura prawns and 7 nuggets - complete with french fries and ketchup!

I love being a student! *kisses my student card!* ^_^

Price hike or shrink in portion?

Nowadays, many food sellers either raise prices or reduce food portions without raising prices~ The worst kind are those who increase prices and reduce portions at the same time!

Here's an example of "reducing food portions without raising prices" (from kobayashi):

The hotplate became a round and much smaller one, and the portions are now being reduced to half of what they used to give!

An example of increasing prices and reducing portions at the same time would be long john silver's, whose chicken pieces never fail to amaze me with their gradual "petiteness" over the years~

Baby and i'd rather food sellers increase prices without affecting food portions!

Which would u rather have? A price hike for the usual portion of food, or a shrink in the food portion for the same old price?

BBQ Express

There used to be more bbq express outlets; a quick google check told me that there's now only 3 outlets left in bukit panjang plaza, imm and hougang mall~

Bukit Panjang Plaza
1 Jelebu Road
Singapore 677743

Tell me how can anyone not be enticed by these!?

They offer many more items, but i love their whole chickens best! Their whole chickens (honey/black pepper) go for only $6.50 and their meat's tender, moist and well-seasoned, especially the honey-glazed ones! ^_^

Happy National Day!

It's Singapore's 43rd birthday, y'all! And damn the e-balloting thingy again! Every year also cannot get tickets!


That's actually the view from my room window la haha~ I purposely waited for the LRT to come by before snapping each pic! ^_^

Here's what Baby and i had for our National Day lunch:

I thought that it was appropriate to eat chicken rice on National Day coz it's one of the most representative dishes of Singapore!

I shall post the following videos like i did last year coz i love Singapore and Lee Kuan Yew so much! Ok la no link but u know what i mean! ^_^

Love this song by Hossan Leong!

And how could i ever forget my favouritest national song?

As old school as u can get. *Waves flag* Sniff~

Petit Provence

From what i understand, petit provence was branched out from provence in holland village and the former only carries a small selection of breads and pastries, hence the name "petit"~

We have walked past this little shop in central countless times but we have never gotten anything from them coz the limited selection doesn't really attract us~

One saturday night, however, i decided on a whim to try them out, and so we got 1 of each from what were displayed~

The Central
6 Eu Tong Seng Street
Singapore 059817

I forgot the prices but they were around 80 cents to $1.20 i think? That's the chocolate wassant by the way~

And here's the cream custard wassant. Their wassants had no texture to speak of, they were just... soft~

The chocolate croissant looks good but it wasn't! The chocolate flavour didn't really blend in well~

Now this croissant was the best in both Baby and my opinion; it was lightly glazed and had a buttery fragrance!
