Vroom vroom....

Here it is! Our cute Suzuki Lapin
Yesterday, someone finally got his dream come true car,after considering for so long (and i mean a very...very long time! :P)
It was a chance opportunity that we set eyes on this very cute car and someone decided that this would be THE ONE.
I think you'll be seeing more pics of it soon! :P
I have plans to 'decorate' it! Heeheehee ^_^V

French Toast breakfast

This morning decided to have french toast for breakfast for a change. :)
Cut into bite sized pieces, easier to fry and eat. Quite yummy to eat it with jam and maple syrup. :P

Lulu Restaurant/cafe

Last Friday we went to Raffles City after work to do some Mother's Day present buying. Sometimes the big crowds on Friday night put me off going to town. You have to squeeze to get into the train, queue to get dinner and then queue to pay for your shopping. Oh well, that's the weekend for you.
We decided to have dinner at the Streets HK cafe, just outside Shokudo. But there was a queue there too. I think it must be the spillover from Shokudo, (which had a perpetually long queue) and the people who gave up queuing moved over next door.
So we decided to move another door down (Haha!) and ended up at Lulu Restaurant. Yes, I know the name is rather cheesy, but hey, at least they didn't have a queue! Lulu's serves Shanghainese and Sichuan cuisine and from the menu board, it didn't look too bad either.
Their menu comes in the shape of a fan (to suit the name of the place i guess) but unfortunately for a rather new place, was already falling apart. (boils down to the bad design :S)
We ordered the Smoked Fish, which was rather tasty... something like unagi. It was doused in a sweet sauce which had a rather strong taste of a certain spice. (can't quite identify which it is though) On the whole I quite like it.

Next we had the Stone Pot Fried Rice. This one was rather unique. Rice served in a hot bowl, with prawns, squid, diced pumpkins and mashed salted egg and it also came with a reddish sauce. (some sort like the one you would get if you ordered bibimbap at a korean eatery.)

We also ordered a stewed vegetable dish with bamboo pith. I found this a little too bland in taste and a tad bit to oily.

A downside was that the dishes came out at different timings, so by the time this dish was served, we had already finished our rice.
But overall, the place was not bad. Good thing is that you don't have to wait for a seat. :P Price was mid ranged, about $20 a person.

Bath time

Its been really hot around here lately, so today I decided to cool Pigmy down by giving her a bath. Pigmy never really minded taking baths. She's more or less ok as long as she has something to hold on to and the water is nice and warm. :) What a good piggy!
Now she's all nice smelling and soft! :)
