Photo #6 – Botanic Garden, Singapore (新加坡-植物園)

Pictures below were taken at Singapore Botanic Gardens a few weeks ago. I was at lost when I saw everywhere in the gardens were so green. At that moment, I did not have any idea what to take. When taking pictures, I would hope that my pictures would turn out to be colorful and would want to leave something to my viewers. But there were not any other color besides green there. Fortunately, I found some pictures among so many that I took that day, which I think are alright. I hope you all enjoy it. Happy Saturday everyone and have a great weekend!

Dinner For One (各人套餐)

This is how I indulge myself after day long chores: prepare quick fix dinner with a piece of that NYDC cheese cake and a cup of Chinese tea. Sorry to disappoint you that I rarely drink wine anymore. I do not like how it feels when the wine gets me dizzy with only a few sips of it. I just want to enjoy my meal, having that cake and tea with moments of quietness or music at home. Moment like this is all I prefer and couldn’t ask for more.

I would never get tired of cooking and eating my own chicken rice. It is very convenient and quick fix lunch/dinner that I usually prepare for my family when I have night class. I believe I had posted this before with the step by step instruction (Please refer it to Saturday post: chicken rice). When cooking the chicken topping, prepare it more than what you need. The leftover chicken can be used for your next meal topping as well. You can have chicken noodle tomorrow. Enjoy and Happy Saturday!

Photo #5 – Malacca, Malaysia (馬來西亞-馬六甲)

We had long weekend holiday Last week. The Singapore national day fell on the ninth of August and coincidentally the day before was the muslim holiday. We have traveled to north Malaysia numerous time and always passed by Malacca but never visited. That was why I planned to go to Malacca with my family during this holiday.

Malacca is about 3 to 5 hours drive from Singapore depending on the traffic. Upon entering the city we were trapped in very heavy traffic jam. It took us about two hours to reach the city. It was a very disappointed trip that left us all wanted to go back immediately. Places are filled with people and cars. There was no way to go anywhere and no way to turn back either. Since it was already after two in the afternoon, we decided to just go to nyonya baba heritage site to grab something to eat before we headed home. To my horror, we found out that we had to stand in line for over 30 minutes under the hot sun just to buy food. It was really very unpleasant trip that I hope we would not experience it again. Below are some of the pictures I took while queueing. Have a nice weekend.

Photo #3 – Chinese Garden 3/3 (中國花園), Singapore

I was kinda disappointed not to find big flowers in the garden. In fact there were only few small ones here and there that were hardly noticeable.
