Carrot Cake

I am back on the foodie trail again. Carrot cake had always been my favourite, I can eat it in the morning as my breakfast, as my lunch, as my dinner or even as a starter. Anytime anyday I am ready for carrot cake. Although I prefer white carrot cake to black carrot cake.

So this bring me to this stall in Bedok Interchange Song Zhou Luo Bo Gao. Judging from the steady stream of patrons, gotta try the carrot cake here.

And my verdict is, I will go there again and eat the carrot cake. The white carrot cake at least. The carrot cake itself is nimble and soft. The chilli used is spicy and fragrant. The uncle fry it with some crisps. And with the nice offering of chye poh, this carrot cake is delicious.

If you're happen to be in Bedok Interchange waiting for a bus, dont forget to drop by this stall.

First of all need to say thanks to my buddy Victor for helping me to buy this ham. I must say this is my first time buying a 5kg ham. I think this would last me and Kim for a long long time to come.Cooked Pork Shoulder Ham. Look at the size, its definitely taller than your average spoon. Its definitely as long as my knife.

Paid something about less than $24, I think it’s a good price to pay considering the size and quantity.So from now onwards, my meals will definitely feature ham as one of the main ingredients. Ham Cooked Rice, Ham Stir Fried Vege, Ham Bread.........etc....ham ham ham ham

It was movie weekend for me. Watched couple of movies which I missed watching. Caught Meet Dave starring Eddie Murphy, Yes Man starring Jim Carrey and Transporter 3 starring Jason Statham on dvd. I might as well say it that Meet Dave certainly surprised me. Given the fact we watched this at midnight and we thought the boring elements of this movie will doozed us off. Suprisingly Eddie's antics was comical and zany enough to serve as a triple shot of latte that kept us awake.And it helps that this movie was not draggy given the fact it just clocks in at about 90 min. Anything more than that would have destroyed the movie. As for Yes Man, I had stopped expecting anything out of a Jim Carrey movie. Although the concept of saying Yes seems quite enthralling and appealing, I would decline to say Yes if you were to ask me if this movie was good. Well if you have nothing to do on a long weekend, I guess no harm watching modern day Jerry Lewis packing a punch. Modern Chuck Norris, Jason Statham I must say have one hell of a nice ton sculptured body. He can give those Spartans in 300 a run for their money. See it to believe it.

On telly they showed Flyboys. I missed watching this and it was certainly a delight seeing dog fights between the French pitting against more superior firepower and machinery prowess of the Germans.

Highlight of my movie on last weekend was certainly Up. Pixar has done it again. John Lasetter and the crew are like pedigree horses. You wouldn’t want to bet against a good horse. And so if you're the jockey that invested millions in Pixar, you will know they run the race good and they are in it for the gold. So what can I say about this movie. Everything from the musical score, up the closing credits was priceless. Another coup for Pixar and how they turn a simple story about spending one's golden years and how life can be injected through friendship between an old man, an Asian boy and a talking dog.Bring your hankies as this certainly a tear jerker. Not that its tragically sad, but Pixar injects the basic tenets of humans emotions in every movies they produced.

Imagine, Pixar was never intended to be producing animation movies in the first place. That speaks of volume of Pixar's edge in givng the rest of the wannabes like Sony Studio Animations, Nickeledeon, and the other big boys there a run for the money for animation.

On weekend, we headed down to Holiday Inn Parkview to have Indian food. Since I am such a miser and will not pay for the full price for a buffett meal, so I jumped onto the chance when I got myself a 1-1 voucher for Tandoor that serves North Indian cuisines.

Per head is $38, nett price should come to about $42++ after the 10% service charges and 7% GST.

The Garlic naan was simply delicious. I cant remember when was the last time that I ate a plain naan just by itself. The naan was not too powdery nor tough nor dry. It was made with perfection with slightly burned crisps.

Next was the yoghurt mango drink. I just couldn’t have enough of it. Its so thick and rich that I actually lost counts on how many cups I drank that day. The highlight for me in this restaurant is Murgh Malai Tikka (Chicken). This is simply one of the best tikka I ever tasted. The meat was tender and juicy. Its soft and the spices imbued in the meat just runs through your senses. Apart from the tikka, other dishes such as Fish Goa Curry, Chicken Kali Mirch and other many dishes offered are really nice.

Although I find the appetizer too exotic for my liking but Kim loves it. As you can see picture above, you just scoop the liquid and pour into the ball. The desserts are also too sweet for my liking. But I think that day, Kim had surpassed me in terms of taking a liking for Indian food. Suprisingly she now can enjoy more Indian delicacies than me. Damn!! LOL!
