Of Being A Tourist in My Country

The last few days have been spent showing Take around Singapore and eating whatever our destinations have to offer. Take is this Japanese dude we met in our Phnom Penh guesthouse. I reckon he hasn’t been home for about half a year. He quit his job, went to Australia to study English for a couple of months and has been backpacking since. What would I give to drop my books and lead this nomadic lifestyle.

Packing Woes

The time of the year. Evacuating the room and packing. When you have two individuals who have totally different packing styles, you know it's going to be a long afternoon. It didn't take long for all the lovey dovey to turn into animosity.

"No! Don't put it there!"

"Clear the rubbish!"

"We need to work faster!"

"Shouldn't you pack this way?"

Sweat, humidity, dust, mess, all the right ingredients for a mean dose of irritance. Thankfully there weren't any sharp objects around. I swear we would get to each others' necks in no time.

When all is done, you go for a good meal.

Place: IndoChine Empress Place.
Location: Waterfront, overlooking the Singapore River.
Cuisine:
Refined IndoChinese cuisine, including Vietnamese, Laotian and Cambodian specialities. Basically, a modern fusion take on IndoChinese food.
Verdict: Great ambience. Food gave the tastesbuds quite a good workout. You could almost smell the Mekong River. Overall, a very pleasant meal albeit slightly pricey.

I love the animosity. It's through animosity you know someone better.

Noodle King

Noodle King

This is the best instant noodles to hit our shores. First tried them out during last year’s food fair. ( Go on the last day, loads of bargains, I bought so much there is still some uneaten)

The texture of the noodles is somewhat similar to those you find in Hongkong, or any good noodle place here. Thin, fine and crunchy. Now that they are availabe in all good supermarkets, you guys can have your fine noodle fix right at home.

*Sorry no pics of the noodles cooked. The stomach refused and polished the noodles in no time.*
