That’s me all the time. That I don’t fit in or don’t measure up in this world. That no one recognises your value. A value you doubt yourself on a daily basis. Perhaps there’s a planet out there where I do belong, and wonderful like minded folk could join me. Folks who have been rejected for being true to themselves, true to their values, in spite of the disdain it might bring.
This song by Mindy Gledhill made me tear as it encapsulates how I feel right now. Hope it will make you feel not so alone, not so dejected, if something has brought you down today. If you think you’re weird, maybe it’s a good thing – weird and wonderful. There’s so much more to you than the material world’s classifications.
Besides the compelling lyrics, her voice is just so sweet, magical and soothing.
B has been complaining that he has been unable to have a real american style pizza with a dense chewy crust as health conscious folks have made all the crusts so thin and almost biscuit like. I too feel that other than Dominoes, it’s hard to find cheesy doughy pizza of a quality you find in the US or Australia.
I so wanted Tony’s Pizza to be our go to place, but sadly it didn’t live up to expectations (read some rave reviews previously so have been meaning to try this pizza for a long time). The only thing going for it is the size – it’s really huge. To be honest it was all right (healthy and not oily), but just didn’t live up to our expectations, especially considering the higher prices.
The booths seats on the side were super tiny and squeezy though. Definitely not what you would find in the States.
It’s rather hard to find at first, but the restaurant is located at the very front entrance of Bugis Junction – you can spot it from the road.
My blog has been feeling tired and I have a desire to make it fresh again. My family members have commented that it’s mostly pictures and less of my thoughts.
I really have been slacking.
Well more a sense of not feeling free.
I have been feeling protective of my thoughts and don’t feel like undergoing the scrutiny and judgement that comes with wholeheartedly expressing what I feel. This must be why many bloggers have resorted to locked posts with passwords. Seems a good idea if you want to pour your heart out without limitations.
WordPress Stats gives me some insight that most of my readers are from Singapore followed by the US and than Malaysia. These are stats for slightly more than half a year (2015) since we’ve crossed into July already.
You can’t help by crave for durian during this bumper crop season. Chong Pang City (Sembawang) is a good place to get durians as cheap as a dollar. We tried the $10 durian called D101 and that was creamy and pretty awesome. Pretty close to Mao Shan although the best durian I’ve tried is Mao Shan which is not in the least watery and just the right density.
To save time just buy the durians without having them cut and the fruit packed for you. If you do this you have to wait at least 30 to 40 minutes in a queue which moves slowly as the people in front have each bought at least 10 durians. But you need the skill to cut the durian and this saves you the trouble. But if you’ve having a durian party and you want to show the kids how it’s actually done, doing it yourself will be a good idea.
We bought 5 and got a discount of $5 ($45 for 5 D101 durians)
Back the millionth time to Yakader at Tekka Market which is a testament to how much we like it. Messy looking, but extremely delicious to us. You can go back to the stall for a top up of the ‘talchar’ (dhal gravy that you’ve given in a bowl).
Finally tried out the famous frozen yoghurt from Spain. I wasn’t impressed but it’s definitely zero fat. I prefer my yoghurt full fat and no sugar (and I like to have it with my South Indian rice meal) instead of fat free and pumped with sugar.
The branch at Plaza Singapura has a few seats which you can nab if you’re lucky.
Tried the famous Fishball story noodles and chilli mee at Golden Mile hawker centre. Think I have a preference for wan tan mee when it comes to noodles. This is for bak chor mee fans who like a savoury rather than sweet base. This place is also famous for tulang and I snapped pictures of other options for lunch here.
This was one of the best chocolate gelatos I had (during a trip to Rome) and I was excited to see that Robinson’s had a counter (wish it was a cafe though). The chocolate was so thick that the way they scooped it made it look not so appealing but it was really good – filled with real chocolate.
The cakes flown in from UK look mighty tempting but more for takeaway I guess.
