Tua Pui Curry Mee 大肥咖哩麵

  While I was drafting the Tua Pui Curry Mee post in Mandarin, I got stuck … just do not know how to continue it. Ended up I will have to write in English instead of Mandarin. In fact, there are many posts in this blog have written in Mandarin, some how some where, I got stuck… the brain is just not functioning well enough to tweet some Mandarin characters. I guess that’s shame on me whom educated in Chinese media.  No matter how hard I tried… it’s some how stopped some where; not to mention my English isn’t that great either.

I got to know this name 6 to 7 years ago, but never get a chance to visit. This name always appears in the receipts where I need to assist my superior to claim. After some time, you will just put it in your food hunting list, which you didn’t want to miss it. On our recent trip to Singapore, I finally get to step foot into this place where I know 6 to 7 years ago. And it was just located opposite our hotel. After a long day meeting, and a quick check-in in the hotel… we were all get ready marching into to the mall for our dinner. Wondering what would be the food that will be filling up the 12 humongous stomachs or rather the gluttons. What’s famous in Singapore is the gigantic mud crab, and many called that Sri Lankan Crabs, perhaps it is imported from there. The crab can grow as big as 28cm, the claw is as big as 15cm long, and the width can be wide as 8 to 10cm.  It’s a most famous seafood on any dining table, be it cooked it with chili, pepper or sweet and sour sauce.

Angry Bird Cocktail

When Angry Bird game rule the entire world, basically everything you will get to see that in any menu, be it food menu or even drink menu. Who in the world doesn’t know Angry Bird, right? Even my 2 years old nephew can tell me he wants to play Angry Bird. And this is what I encountered in one of the renowned bar in Singapore. Basically it’s Chivas Regal the Scotch whisky, mix with crème de peach liqueur, lemon juice and apple juice. Added all these and shake well. That would be the so called Angry Bird cocktail. A drink that can cool you down instead of using a slingshot to hit on the hungry green pigs. Anyway, it’s a new cocktail to explore… Enjoy!
