oh there was also this Cookie shop

didnt get a chance to buy this because the queue so freaking long...

didnt queue for this because the waiting time in the queue was TOOOO LONG. 2-3 hours wait!!
this one is at tsim sha tsui area, beside holiday inn. follow the queue…

 

okie. actually we spent a lot more time in macao. because i insisted.
i prefer macao way more than the busy hong kong. it’s just like another singapore.
with bigger land and nights that are forever young…

so here goes.. MACAO!

always ready for photos. heehee

Cotai express rocks. the vip seats is SHIOK one.

was very lucky. a friend had 50mop discount voucher. so we decided to take the VIP seats.
wah is shiok one lor. dont tell you how shiok la. but it’s worth the money. just go for it.
less people, quieter and much more peaceful

*the standard seats are filled with people heading there to gamble… and are usually very loud people… ahem*

 

arrived and hungry. my reliable source + personal guide told me there’s a shiok sandwich and toast shop just 10 minutes away from where i stayed. wah famished!!!

good luck in finding this shop!

PS i dont like sharing address of all the good finds. but you can send me a private message and i will consider sharing my secret finds.

after all the walking in the drizzle for shiok food, i had more energy to find the next place for dinner…

visited this place during a performance trip in 2012. and couldnt stop thinking about it.
chilled pork knuckles with wasabi dip.

20140312_200830

Dont’ be fooled by this harmless looking thing.  it is all a facade.

 

WAH THIS IS SOOOOOOOOOOO GOOD. durian puree with durian cream. a bit pricey but worth every cent.
the previous time i was there, we had this EVERY NIGHT. it didnt help that we were staying just above this shop. and it opens till 2am! at first it was the singaporean style “order one we share la. try try”. until 5 people ordering 6…
THIS IS A MUST EAT FOR ALL DURIAN LOVERS.

 

next day.. breakfast was..  DIMSUM!!

dim sum for two. over ordered...

dim sum for two. over ordered…

the best part of dimsum for hipster singaporeans would be the LSB!!!!!!!!
not lup sup bar please.
(if you dont know what LSB stands for, then you are not hipster enough… )
for the benefit of non singaporean, it’s the egg yolk custard bun.

 

 

 

 

 

 

LSB!!!!!!!!!

LSB!!!!!!!!!

purposely put big big photo
the bun dough is oatmeal mixture. shiok for me only.

the other best thing about this restaurant.. they offer cheap Charsiew rice bento at level one.

 

IMG_2825

they get a big crowd by 11am,

 

IMG_2827

besides being really friendly and patient, they also take great pride in their food.

it costs about 2 Sgd.
you might think it’s what we would normally get in SG. few pieces of charsiew, two slices of cucumber.. thats it..
HA HA DONT BE SURPRISED!!!

 

IMG_2828

 

ya few pieces of charsiew. but VERY BIG pieces. and even half an egg!!! less than 2sgd okie!!

the chef was very kind. when they finished they sales for the day, he offered me some loose slices to try.

WOW ITS SO DELICIOUS. i would pay 5 SGD (in macao)for this. but even for 5 SGD we seldom can get food this good back in sg…

 

satisfied.
so it’s time for DESSERT!!!!!!!!!!

Mok Yee Kei
