Next Door Deli (24 January 2015)

We went to run some errands around the Ang Mo Kio area, and Hubs introduced this place to me.

We did order too much food for just the two of us.

The food was nice but not exactly extraordinary.

They only accept cash which means we need to have sufficient cash with us in the first place.

If we are around the area, we wont mind to have a meal there.

The food isnt the cheapest, but it is counted value for money to us.

Location: Blk 529 Ang Mo Kio Avenue 10 #01-2369

Olio Cafe (22 January 2015)

Another lunch appointment with Hubs.

We tried the set lunch promotion at Olio Cafe.

I chose the Gnocchi with Steak together with mushroom soup and cappuccino.

This is the very first time we had Gnocchi and we love it.

We like the texture and the taste of the gnocchi we got from Olio Cafe.

We will surely go back for another lunch of gnocchi there without any doubt.

Canton Paradise @ Compasspoint Mall (20 January 2015)

I met up with Hubs for lunch at Compasspoint Mall as it is near my working place.

We chose Canton Paradise as we want Chinese food.

The food there is nice no matter what time and which day we go. So when we want some dim sum near our place, that is one of the best options we have.

Genting Trip (15 – 18 January 2015)

This is the second time I have been to Genting, the first time I went was when I was less than 10 years old.

We took a bus up to Genting from Chinatown on 15 January evening time, we reached the hotel around 3am in the morning.

The next morning, we woke up rather early for breakfast and to explore the place as well.

On 16 January, we just stayed in the hotel and explore their facilities and their shopping.

On 17 January, Hubs and I went down the Strawberry farm and Mushroom farm via the cable car.

After coming back to the hotel to meet my parents for dinner, I had dessert as well.

Ice Cream

Ice Cream

Eating ice cream in a cooling environment is really quite nice. The ice cream will last longer too.

On 18 January, we went to take the bus in the early morning to head back to Singapore. So this is a rather short and sweet trip.

I will really want to come back again in the future, although it isnt really very cold in Genting Highlands, the temperature is just cooling, and the hotel is rather self-sufficient, so there is no need to travel out of the hotel for anything at all. We travel out as we have not been there for a super long time.

Chikuwa Tei (10 January 2015)

For my dad’s birthday, the family went to try a new place for Japanese food.
