the snoopys having a pineapple picnic
once you start, you can't stop
my mum and i had to put each other on standby as quantity control when we eat the coffee cookies because once the cover's open, it's just non stop munching. they're really fresh and crunchy and has generous portions of almond flakes in them, which make the cookies absolutely delicious! if you get this for chinese new year i'm sure more people will visit you, then you can get more ang baos!!!! =)
they don't do orders this year so it's on a first come first serve basis, because apparently some uniquely singaporean tried to be funny last year and wanted to order one year in advance. thanks dude. @%^&^#$%#$

i love the bak chor mee here because the noodles are cooked to perfection - springy without the starchy aftertaste (mee kia for me). the chilli and vinegar combination is a killer, and i like to add some ketchup to my bowl of noodles too. unlike those served in commercialised food courts, this one has a very traditional taste to it. the ingredients, consisting of mushroom, minced meat, meatballs and liver are so basic that it looks deceivingly plain at first. however, the noodles, sauce and ingredients complement one another so well that a burst of flavour is guaranteed with every mouthful.

"Three American brothers who have not spoken to each other in a year set off on a train voyage across India with a plan to find themselves and bond with each other -- to become brothers again like they used to be. Their "spiritual quest", however, veers rapidly off-course (due to events involving over-the-counter pain killers, Indian cough syrup, and pepper spray), and they eventually find themselves stranded alone in the middle of the desert with eleven suitcases, a printer, and a laminating machine. At this moment, a new, unplanned journey suddenly begins."
you'll never know how alternative an "indie" film is going to be until the screen plays, so i always cross my fingers and hope that it's going to be good. the darjeeling limited doesn't disappoint. the conversations between the characters were scripted to fit the scenes so well that the film makes an easy and joyful watch, though upon deeper probing will one realize that it actually packs a ton of meaning between the lines. oh boy the choice of songs! before i could even catch myself, my head was bobbing up and down with the cleverly chosen soundtracks. i was especially in awe of the colours used throughout the film, making every shot extremely simple yet beautiful.
there are a number of humourous scenes which made me laugh so loud it’s embarrassing, and i liked how the film is able to put me through an emotional rollercoaster ride. i must also mention that the three main characters are a perfect fit for the show, except maybe owen wilson, but that’s just because everytime i think of him, I think of his catwalk in zoolander. ;)
by the way, the 11 suitcases in the film were made by *gasp* louis vuitton!
i can’t tell you anymore, or i’ll spoil your movie.

the burgers finally arrived! this was supposed to be the restaurant's only saving grace after a witnessing a lineup of substandard service. unfortunately, the burgers we ordered had nothing much to be relished about.
if the whole setting was to change into a normal roadside bistro, i would say relish would be a pretty good place for decent burgers. however, with it being a restaurant, the service was horrible and with the price i'm paying for the burgers, i almost felt as if i got cheated of my emotions and money as i walked out of that place.
