First meal of the trip: some sausage bacon supreme muffin thing from McDonald’s. Very exciting, I know. Our flight got in past 2am and the Swenson’s and Toastbox at Changi International Airport didn’t have the food we wanted so it’s not like we had much of a choice!
For brunch, we walked to Ikea. I had organic pancakes with spinach and cheese:
Penny had the much vaunted Swedish meatballs:
Nan had the stuffed salmon:
And we all shared some pasta:
For post-shopping/pre-concert grub, we headed to a hawker center near Penny’s building. I had nasi lemak:
I was a bit surprised to be served fish because the photo showed chicken. I shrugged it off as I didn’t want to be yelled at by the auntie at the counter (they look scary, okay!). I also mistook the chili paste to be alamang and had a generous mouthful of it. I washed it down with white fungus tea (tastes like gulaman).
Singaporeans are cute because they have dinner… and then they have supper. Walked to Mac’s (as they call it) after drinks. I had a double cheeseburger meal with iced Milo:
I love their chili sauce (orange glob) and I think SG McDonald’s tastes better! The burger patties are thicker, too.
We made our way to Bugis for brunch on our second/last day. I wanted Hainanese chicken but made a mistake and got roasted chicken instead. Read, cannot?
(Lame attempt at Singlish, heh.)
Chicken wings at S$1.30 a piece (I was trying to get rid of my coins). This was crispy and full of flavor!
I felt so bad for this uncle.
Because we missed checking in for our return flight, we still had time for another meal. I finally got my Hainanese chicken at a hawker center at Orchard. I didn’t like it much.
Delicious but too spicy!
For dessert, I had an ice cream sandwich (eaten at a bus stop lol):
And New York cheesecake from The Cafe Cartel. Fifty percent off on desserts and coffees after 9pm!
Due to tummy troubles, I avoid spicy food as much as a I can but I found myself craving for it when I got back to Manila. My first meal back home was a can of sardines (heh) sprinkled with bagoong, chili powder, and cayenne pepper. It tasted funny.
I can’t wait to go back!
