I heart singapore (Day 4)

Today was another fun filled day which consisted of cooking, shopping, dining, and the movies.  We ate at this super good restaurant at Clark Quay called “Jumbo Seafood”.  The name may sound cheesy, but the food would totally put Capital Seafood and Sam Woo Seafood to shame!!!  We had chili crab, cheese fried shrimp, fish w/sweet & sour like sauce, and sharks fin soup with crab meat.  The seafood was ultra fresh and the restaurant was very modern inside.  

 

After diner, we ventured out to watch “Ip Man”.  It’s a chinese movie, but there were subtitles to help out the non-chinese folks like me.  =)

 

Okay, enough rambling…  Here are more pics for you to enjoy!

Life is Gooooooooood.

As many of you know, I love cooking (aka “cooking mama”).  It’s about 1pm in Singapore and I’m whipping up some lunch and listening to LMFAO and Kanye.  This whole traveling thing is quite fun, especially when I have a kitchen to make some home cooked meals.  This song totally reminds me of LA though.  =)

Miraculously, I have no jet lag on this trip!  Soooooo, it’s day 3 and I’m feeling great!  I’m going to keep things short and simple today.  More pics, less words!

Finally, a Sephora in Singapore!

You know you’re in good hands when Sephora is in town!  Oh, did I mention they also have Sephora at SFO International Terminal.  =)

Word on the street…

Since I’m getting ready to go to “hello kitty land” next week (aka Japan), I thought it would be appropriate to share some of the gossip floating around on the blogosphere.

 

It looks like MAC cosmetics will be coming out with the Hello Kitty limited edition line!  Hopefully the selection and packaging will be like the Barbie collection.  That has been one of my favorite collections thus far.  The product launch is rumored to be in February, so make sure to check around for the actual release.

I heart Singapore (Day 2)

It’s been almost exactly 1 year, since my last visit to Singapore.  Everything looks about the same, with the exception of more high rise residences popping up in the neighborhood.  Orchard row is still bustling with people, shops, and so many eateries. 

In Asia, Mc Donalds has another chain of eateries called, Mc Cafe.  The one in Singapore is always packed with teens and young adults.  From afar, you can hear “Womanizer” by Britney Spears blasting from Mc Cafe.  I personally think it’s a pretty hip place to just hang out!

In addition to Mc Cafe, you can grab some desert and small treats in many small shopping plazas.  In SF, I love egg puffs, but here in Singapore they have sponge cake treats that are made right in front of you!  They come in plain or glazed over with green tea, strawberry, or cheese.  It’s basically fresh deli manjoo.

And , last but not least, they had these gorgeous strawberries imported from Japan on display at the market.  I remember seeing the same variety being sold at Mitsuwa in Costa Mesa, but it was just super over priced!  In the US, it was just about $30 for a package of Amou strawberries.  I guess they are like supposed to be like the “Ferrari” of strawberries from Kyushu, Japan.  Aside from its hefty price tag, these strawberries looked juicy, bright red, and just perfect.
