what's happening in the quiet town of anchorvale?
a bigass carpark style proposal!
That aside, I got all my results back, and I did mighty fine indeed! It was the most challenging school term from day one right until the very last day of exams, and I knew I just couldn’t pull through on my own. So I prayed “I know it’s going to take a miracle for me to do well this term. But You’ve promised good, so I’m going to just try my best and rest knowing that you’ve got it all covered.” Wow. Jesus got it covered and it was a miracle indeed, it’s amazing amazing amazing! I was left speechless looking at the transcript, unable to justify the grades at all. Of course it’s unjustifiable - it’s called undeserved and unmerited grace and favour. =)

we're on the good food adventure trail!
this is not in response to the latest mediacorp drama *eww*
the queen and her menu
achar and sambal chilli
meatball soup ($12)
we ordered fish maw soup but they got our order wrong and came with some meatball soup with topshell. the soup was light and refreshing, i liked it very much though i think it's a little too pricey. the sambal petai (aka smelly beans!) is a famous peranakan dish. not everyone will appreciate it as the beans supposedly have a bitter aftertaste, though i didn't taste any bitterness and i LOVED the sambal to bits. this was my favourite dish of the evening hands down.
ngoh hiong ($8)
my mum orders ngoh hiong everywhere she goes, and she was pretty impressed by the ones sold here. i think the fact that they used really fresh ingredients made it a winner. the egg omelette was normal though the seafood used was really fresh too.
seafood egg omelette ($6)
babi pongteh ($8)
i ordered the babi pongteh because the peranakans do this dish magically. the gravy is like oooh-la-la! my parents really liked this dish too. my only gripe was that the meat could be a little more tender and i prefer the one at chilli padi's nonya buffet better.
the chendol is s.u.p.e.r.b. even i don't drink chendol much and i know on first sip that this is good stuff. it's also got the ten thumbs up from my dad who's a chendol fan. he claims that it's exactly the same as the one he had when he was a child and that they don't sell chendol like this outside nowadays. i think it's because they use gula melaka instead of cane sugar, which made it extremely flavourful without the sickening sweetness chendol often has.
charming chendol ($3.50)
the bill came up to $55 in all for the three of us, which i thought was pretty worth it except maybe for the soup. we had a blessed evening together, and seeing the satisfied looks on the two chews' faces made it money absolutely well spent. =)
