海记 Tampines Street 43

James left for Taiwan last night
He won't be back till 3 weeks later
So we went to 海记 to eat before his departure
However I have already eaten, so I gave him a treat
at Tampines Street 43


Roast Duck Spaghetti
$3.00
The roast duck is delicious
but the cream sauce taste like its from
a familiar brand's canned chicken cream soup






They had some feng shui plant
in front of their establishment


We also had 锅贴
which I've forgotten how much it costs.
Good thing is that it is pan fried
instead of deep fried
(which a lot of stores are doing currently)

SEAFOOD HARVEST [Bugis Junction]


here we are at SEAFOOD HARVEST
2nd floor in Bugis Junction
As my friends entered the dining area first
I was quite surprised there was no host
at the entrance.. bizzare
and it was dinner time


me with the "I KILL YOU" pose


Diner(s) Dash today - Edwin and Izandra


Blue Sky Soda
$4.50
pretty refreshing, well taste like blueberry soda
hmm... comes with a free cherry


Lime Aloe Vera Juice
$3.60
beware.. sour as hell


Passion Fruit Soda
$4.50


Garlic bread was served shortly
after we took our orders
The bread felt like it was prepared from the morning


Our happy diners anticipate the meal
so we decided to find out how long it takes for the meal to arrive..


HOLY MOLLY!
we all have the same watch!


You may choose the bistro area
for a more enjoyable dining experience
however it should be more for couples
so we took the sofa


Man in black,
"My son will grow up to be ASTRO BOY!"


Chowder Pro
$13.50
The cream is decently tasty
however the top layer has already coagulated
(as seen in picture), it has probably waited at the pass




Seafood Pasta (Tomato)
$12.00
The pasta is al dente, no complain
however the seafood..
1. calamari - blanched only, not properly cooked with the gravy
2. prawn - fresh
3. mussels - frozen
the tomato base is very basic
lack hints of basil
so it taste like something i'd cook myself when i'm really busy


Seafood Pasta (Cream)
$12.00
as above
however, its good that we have a choice


A friendly pinoy wait staff
came to offer us some condiments








The ambience is friendly and inviting
however, pretty unusual that it is rather empty
during dinner timings
However, I have read some bad reviews of this place,
so I came to give it some justice.


The service staff are friendly
However, the supervisor/manager seems a bit too relaxed
to be leaning against the pillar
chatting away with his staff.

Nevertheless, he came to check with us
if the food was alright.

By the way, in case I have yet to mention,
SEAFOOD HARVEST belongs to the same group
as JACK'S PLACE and EATZI.
In comparison of service, I would rate this place
aboe the two above; bearing in mind that these are franchises.


Total Damage for 3 pax: $53.67
Unbelievably cheap!

General Ratings:
Food Qualty: 7/10 (lack consistency)
Food Portion Size: 9/10
Food Variety: 8/10
Service: 9/10
Ambience: 6/10 (clubbing music is unacceptable in a restaurant)
Return Factor: 6/10 (maybe, maybe..)
Overall Rating: 6.5/10

DAY 2


I was assigned to the Pinoy Blogger group
Our first stop was
Singapore Royal Selangor Pewter Museum


We get to tour the place
and learn the process of making a pewter
Also got to make ourselves a pewter bowl
to bring home as souvenir!
(kinda like a National Education excursion)


Next stop was the Singapore Flyer
Standing at the top of Singapore
looking down on creation!


Here's my man - Carlos Palma
The great guy who brought you those lovely photos above


Look! I found his baby photo.
Probably ate too much Jollibee and Chicken Adobo
hence the size now.
Still cute though~


Pinoy Nuffie, Judd
I think he's
1. Afraid of heights
2. Tired
3. Pregnant


Yes yes.. here's a picture of Ramon Bautista
First row, second from right
The one is black - RAMON BAUTISTA!


Lunch was at Maxwell Food Market
where our foreign friends have a taste of local delights


I think Huiwen (left) is filming MTV
See her hair fly until so happy!


Next stop was
Chinatown Heritage Museum


Where we saw how our Chinese fore-fathers
and their living conditions in squatters many years back.
I love this place! =)


Also there are many antique-like furnitures
where you can do photoshoots.
Which is exactly what we did.
Hahaha..


And here's Elaine, fully furbished
by my great photoshop skills.
MISS KINTAN ROAD 2009
Ok.. not really, I suck
I can never be Xiaxue! D=
And Elaine is so gonna kill me,
today I learnt she knows my URL
T_T


This is the original
The earlier is so much nicer right?
RIGHT? Say yes.. I don't care.


Our final stop is Mint Museum of Toys
where old toys from our grandparents' days
were kept in mint condition
and some costs around USD40,000
Unbelievable! See it for yourself!


Here's one of my favourite character - Tintin
I remember growing up reading Tintin
in my primary school days
where my mum would bring me to
Geylang East library to borrow these
Tintin comics that comes with a funny smell

We were very lucky to be able to
meet the multi-millionaire owner of this museum
I asked him to be my god-father
and he told me "Next life.. maybe!"
(Okaaaay, I made that up.)


Here's Julian
the Irish blogger who lives in Malaysia


After returning to Link Hotel
I had a drink with Julian
and waited for a lovely sunset with
Jehz, Maki and Ada


After that, I brought them to buy
some camera accessories
and admire our beautiful night scene


Maki, at the Merlion Park

DAY 3


Went to Orchard Road with
Hannah, Maki and Jehz


Grabeh! I was damn stupid!
I brought them to buy figurines at Heerens
cos I remembered having an ACTION CITY outlet there
and now I recalled it moved to Cineleisure


And finally it was time for them to go home


This is a really cute photo
of Alodia dropping the luggage on Ashley's foot
I gotta post this again
Oh my God! Almighty!


We had McDonalds' for the last time
and bidded farewell..


Thanks for coming! =D


DAY 6


made a visit to Nuffnang Singapore office
to collect my Julie & Julia tickets


I swear I could hear them chattering
all the way from Mustafa Center
No.. make it City Square Mall.
They're really a fun bunch.


And look! I found my handsome photo in their office.
I think they secretly admires me.
Ahem! Lets keep it a secret.
