Sharing my thoughts, experiences, and special moments with you!

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.

      Dear Joyce,

      You can find this deli manjoo kiosk @ the grocery market next to the Lido Theatre. It is situated right at the front of the grocery market, so it would very difficult to miss! Enjoy!

      Oh Joyce, I just remembered that the deli manjoo kiosk is in the basement of Isetan. Hope this helps and Happy New Year!
