sheesh, i'm down with a flu again.
i seemed to get hit with the virus every fortnightly.
i think i have totally zero antibodies in my system by now.
what a weakling am i!
anyway, my most recent purchases:
Majolica Majorca Pressed Fantasia
isn't the gold persian case so pretty?
i think i should cut down on my shopping shit.
but pretty stuff are so irresistable!

Some reviews on restaurants i've visited lately:The Garlic Restaurant
Mussels in garlic lemon sauce.
nice and tasty with fresh mussels!
Soft Shell Crab Mee Goreng.
Mee Goreng is nicely mixed with savoury sauce but for the price i paid for this, think around $12+, i can get a plate of nice mee goreng just as nice as this for less than half the price.
this picture is badly taken.
and the food tastes just as bad.
this dish is snail sausage pasta or something.
overall, i don't think i'll visit the garlic restaurant again.
but the mussels are worth a try, really!
Crystal Jade Kitchen
i'm so grateful that there's a branch of CJ opposite my home.
i love CJ to bits and we alwayz order the same old stuff when we're there.
texture is simply great and it's terrific, i alwayz yearn for more.
the noodles are really springy and chewy, i'm not a noodle person but i like this alot.
wanton skin is soft and tender, prawns in it are fresh.
Porridge Based Steamboat
this restaurant is located along Liang Seah Street, it's called Park Deli Cafe, they have normal steamboat too and i heard some raves about their porridge based steamboat so decided to give it a try.
fresh meatballs, crab sticks, liver, veggies, luncheon meat, snow crab, prawns and all the normal steamboat stuff can be found here.
we simply dumped everything in and stirred the porridge occasionally.
now waiting for the stuff to cook and boil.
at first it was quite bland.
but after a while, it became more and more tasty.
and it's quite cheap too!
around $13+ per head.
Desserts at 记得吃
we found this along Liang Seah Street as well.
(we had this straight after the porridge based steamboat above.
Steamed Egg White with Fresh Milk
you can choose to have it chilled or warm.
i took the warm one and it simple melts in my mouth.
plus, it's good for our complexion!
Steamed Ginger with egg white
i don't like ginger but if you like ginger, i think you'll like this.
V8 Cafe (Bugis)
Baked Beef Lagsane
very poorly cooked.
the pasta inside was soggy and the beef didn't seem fresh.
i can't remember the exact name for this but it's something like Seafood Fried Rice.
sauce is nice and seafood is fresh.
what a relieve.
serving isn't very small and it's very normal.
Central (HongKong Cafe)
sometimes, i hate staying so far away in the extreme east but yummy cafes like these seem to make up for this at times!
Free drinks for every dish ordered.
Thousand layer beancurd with pork floss
this was served chilled.
it's nice and soft and carefully layered with shredded pork floss found within.
i like this very much and it's only $5.50
Baked Seafood Rice
i think i prefer their baked pork rice, it's much tastier than this.
Spicy Chicken Wings
Fish Head Steamboat at Whampoa Market
i felt like i was in paradise when i was having this.
the soup base is very very tasty!!!
and the fish inside is so fresh and tender.
i can't get enough of this.
this costs $21.
sorry i forgot to take down the name of the stall but it's at the back row, facing the shop houses, on the extreme right.
waiting time is quite long though and service isn't very good.
but the yummy food makes everything a little more worth while.
My Shopping List!!
no fanciful clothes, killer heels or lolita accessories for me this month.
it's all about cosmetics and skincare!!
Majolica Majorca Majolook eyeshadow palette!
Dramatical Mascara by Shisedo, this is my HG, have been using this for years.
but it's a pity this can't be found in Singapore.
Sony CP Curvy Sillicon Lipgloss
Red Wine Mask
Magic Cleansing Oil
lucky jo is alwayz surrounded by sweeties and beauties :P

very nice chawanmushi!
its comparable to the one that i had at Kuishinbo.
i had this Salmon Bento set.
it comes witn tempura as well.
it's quite cheap but i don't remember its price.
i find it so-so.
the salmon has more bones than flesh.
as usual, we would never ever miss this out whenever we dine at a jap restaurant.
fresh assorted sashimi!
i'm so contented with this, there's maguro, tai, salmon and i'm not sure what else.
i love salmon and tai, bing loves maguro!
hand made soba.
some of you may know this jap restaurant at Paragon selling handmade soba, Ichiban makes soba the same way as how the restaurant at Paragon made theirs.
i've seen the demonstration and was very impressed.
the chef uses a special kind of knife and swiftly cuts the whole big piece of flour into ultra thin stripes at a super fast speed!
and i heard it's very nice.
however, when i tried this, i was greatly disappointed.
it's not 'bouncy' in texture at all.
in fact, it's more sticky than bouncy?
or was it meant to be like that?
we ate like pigs, we ate more than what normal 2 people would eat.
the bill came up to $60+ in the end which i found rather reasonable for so many items!
Dining at Ichiban Boshi had been a pleasant experience.
it's a cheaper alternative to my favourite Kuishinbo and Waruku!
