Theme Park

Hello Universal Studios!

This was a random-impulse-sporadic trip to universal! We went straight to the roller coasters since we both are fans of thrill rides! But before we can ride the coaster we have to deposit our things in their high-tech locker system!
not your average locker
see why..
step one to step 4
We rode both the coasters 3 times...each! We love the blue one since it was the scarier one but after 3 times it was no big deal for us anymore!

hello coasters
We had hotdogs for lunch.. not happy with mine!
$11.50 each
Went to one of the biggest candy shop i saw.. and cam-whored
we love candies and chocolates
also went to the pseudo new york city
yaya 1 and yaya 2

Went to kingdom far far away as well..

Found this signage uber cute :)
6 flags wait for us!!

Papa Palheta

I love magazines back in manila i make it a point to buy Preview magazines (though in the latter part of the previous year the issues are getting worse but i think they already reformatted the mag thank god) anyway since preview is not available Her World is my alternative.. its is priced at $6 and I really get the value for my money! Yay!!
March 2011 issue
Anyway, on the Lifestyle Food section they were talking about the best places for coffee here in SG. So we decided to try one (since it was also recommended by Marie)

according to the magazine:
There are no price tags here as this hole-in-the-wall cafe lets you tip as you wish.. (suggested that $3.50 per cup)

So Honestly is the best policy! It is a place to buy your coffee beans not really a cafe :)
Had a hard time finding this huhu stress!! but i guess it was worth it..
path to Papa Palheta
ok went inside and ordered a Cappuccino and Marie ordered a Latte on the top of our head since there was no menu (hmmm...not bad coffee)
Coffee photo
We went inside and saw a lot of cool stuff like..
A more Jurassic Apple vs my Jurassic Apple
more Jurassic stuff
What hell are these?
went to their coffee tasting session (other day) and realized that these are tasting spoons!

Papa Palheta is found ar 140 Bukit Timah opens from 9am-730pm Tuesday- Friday,Sunday and 9am-9pm on Saturdays. They are closed on Mondays for coffee roasting.

They have another real cafe Loysel's Toy at 66 Kampong Bugis (they have actually food, drinks and menu)

Weee for Wee Nam Kee

Heard they serve the best chicken rice according to some people. So Ilene and I decided to visit the place one day!

If you're expecting an air conditioned restaurant with table cloths, you won't find that here in Thompson Road.

The view. Tables and chairs along the street, and the inside looks like a normal food eatery in Chinatown in the Philippines.

View from across the street. As you can see, it's already packed with people. And it's not even lunch time yet!

Roasted or Steamed???? Ilene and I ordered a set with both =)

The sauce / condiments selection!!! LOVE IT!!!

Ilene got her favorite chili ginger sauce!!! (Although for her it lacked ginger a bit)

And I got my PLAIN old ginger! Usually stalls selling roasted chicken etc don't serve this...happy!!!!

Ilene - Left, Marie - Right

By the way, this was our view, the garbage bin where they throw away left overs. See the crow getting one of the pieces? Haha

Free soup is also served. If you are familiar with the soup from Masuki, it tastes kind of like that.

Finally our order came!!!! Roasted and Steamed Chicken combi for 8sgd!

We each got a cup of rice (the rice is so fluffy and fragrant! Yum!) 0.50sgd for each.

I don't know if you see it clearly BUT the chicken meat is really thick, unlike the others who give you small portions.

Ilene also ordered the Barley drink (1.5sgd). Not my favorite, but she enjoyed it. Tastes like the Am from rice. Cleanses your palette I guess, after eating the food.

As you can see we are almost done eating but I just wanted to show you the meat! Usually the steamed one has no flavor, but Wee Nam Kee's is soooooo tasty and juicy! Actually, you won't really need the condiments with it because the chicken is already flavorful enough!

THE CHICKEN WAS AWESOME. Not yet sure if this is the best. But what I'm sure of is that we will visit this place again soon. Blogging about it wants me to go there right now haha
