I went with GuGu and Mama on Mother's Day to M hotel for buffet lunch. It was an international spread. Well, there was quite a wide variety, there's pasta, prawn mee, sashimi, chocolate fountain, just to name a few. Of course, the food was tastier than i had expected. Plus, they have free flow of drinks too.. we had calamansi, grass jelly and ice lemon tea.I ate every single food there and had about 30 pieces of sashimi, plus a whole lot of fruits, cakes dipped in chocolate. Mmm.. making me hungry again, although i will not want to eat at the same place again, it's always more adventurous to try different places.
i went labrador battery, kranji war memorial and ford motor factory. i learned a lot from this trip which i had previously thought it would be boring and useless. the soldiers, our forefathers, the innocents, they died for us. they died for us to be here today, living comfortably without worries of war or hunger. we are too complacent, and we should all take some time to think about these people who died for us during the war, how much they had suffered for us. remember, without their sacrifice, we wont be here today.
my family and i went hill climbing at Bukit Timah early this morning then we went opp of Old Tiong Market, a family there will cook and allow us to enter their house to pray..we go there every year..they have fried bee hoon, curry veg, lotus bun, lohan zai, and their popiah is very crispy and fresh..they wrap it on the spot..its best eaten piping hot to ensure its crispiness..i ate a lot..with tea..
my sis was weird this morning..ate like a mouse. although she complained during hill climbing that her stomach was grumbling..she finished a teeny bit of beehoon and said she was full..sometimes she can eat eat 2 plates,plus 3 popiah..anw, she says she's on a diet..she isn't very fat anyway..tall,thats why she's quite heavy..4get about her! eat with her always not fun de..tell u more next time..
