It’s nice to sit by the huge skating rink (artificial because otherwise it would be freezing). There were many kids skating and some even cried that they were bored, but their parents implored them to carry on since they already paid up for it. Made me curious about the cost. For children 12 and under, it’s S$6 for an hour and S$3 for skates. An additional hour costs S$3. For adults it’s S$7 per hour and S$3 for skates and S$% for an additional hour, although I saw mainly kids – mostly walking on the surface and falling. Looked painful, but still strangely fun. I’ve always wished I had learnt how to skate as a child. It’s too late for me. I have absolutely no balance.
You have have your meal as you watch the skaters. My nasi padang meal cost S$11.20, but the portion was enough for two and the reason it cost more is because I got greedy and added more items like fried egg. Not as tasty as what you would get at Arab Street, but it was still much better than what I’ve had at some other food courts.
The tempeh (fermented soy bean) was yummy. In Asia we don’t mind if one food group touches another, but I gather that this may look like quite a mess if you’re not used to it. We love the mixtures of all the flavours from spicy and salty to sweet.
There’s always an enticing array of dishes to chose from that it’s hard to pick and I tend to get indecisive.
Before that, I was lost as to what to eat. So many cuisines to chose from besides the local hawker fare.
There’s Peranakan as well, which you don’t normally find at food courts.
I was also tempted to get Vietnamese rolls.
If you don’t feel like Asian or spicy, there’s sandwiches and lattes too.
The orange juice was S$3.80, so we decided not to fill ourselves up and have drinks some place new.
