Wolaa @ East Coast Road, #workisover-rated dinner with family

Wolaa @ East Coast Road, #workisover-rated dinner with family Yeah, baby another exciting little find. Our good mates the Breens have been here and really liked it. Every time we go past on the bus we see it and think; "Oh yeah we must pop in there one day..." And today was the day. After much badgering from #1 to go we did. He had had his extra Chinese lessons, and we had just been to see The Lion King (pretty good actually). So in need of a feed, we walked up to Wolaa @ East Coast Road, ...

Rakuya @Katong, lunch with wifey #workisover-rated

Rakuya @Katong, lunch with wifey #workisover-rated These opportunities for date lunch with wifey are fast disappearing. Work starts again soon on 29th July, and I am sad. I'll miss our lovely long days together, seeing the kids, and basically just having uninterrupted fun. So this is one of the remaining days for us. We again chose somewhere different to keep the variety barometer a swinging. So today we visit a place we have walked past many times Rakuya @Katong, lunch with wifey #workisove...

Salt-baked Wagyu ChillaxBBQ style

Salt-baked Wagyu ChillaxBBQ style My great mate Ranners sends me a YouTube of these crazy guys cooking a steak in quite a 'new' way for me. These guys were like Italian gangsters, remember Paulie from Goodfellas? Yeap that's them. Anyways I was intrigued by the said video and so took it upon myself to have a crack and create Salt-baked Wagyu ChillaxBBQ style. I have done salt-baked fish before but never steak. So this is truly virgin territory for me and for ChillaxBBQ. There is no pressure on ...

Paradise Dynasty @ Funan Mall – lunch with wifey #workisover-rated

Paradise Dynasty @ Funan Mall - lunch with wifey #workisover-rated OK, OK this was not a school day albeit that we did go to Amy's school and nearly went to Ollie's too. But more as in it was not a workday. But anyways it was still lunch with the wifey (and all the kids), so it was ace. Funan has just opened its doors again with it's newly designed concept in retail and residential and Ollie had spotted a new restaurant there that we all thought would be groovy to visit. So off we popped to ...

Salted & Hung & Chef Drew, lunch with Wifey #workisover-rated

Salted & Hung & Chef Drew, lunch with Wifey #workisover-rated You know it is weird. You get retrenched from the company you have worked for for 5 years and you feel shit. Let down. Worthless. No good. But then once you have licked your wounds and started to look around for employment you start to feel better about yourself again. Your 'value' is a value. So that is me now. I am interviewing and I am enjoying that. I am staying away from Telco on purpose and looking for something I will ...

Sinpopo @ Joo Chiat Road, Katong, lunch with Wifey #workisover-rated

Sinpopo @ Joo Chiat Road, Katong, lunch with Wifey #workisover-rated I am loving my 'break' from work. Thank you, Telstra. #workisover-rated. So with some time on my hands as I search for new employment, I am taking the kids to school and having lunch with wifey pretty much every day now. And it is brilliant. Absolutely brilliant. But, of course, it must end eventually - wish me luck for that. So today I found a new gem on East Coast. One I have walked past many a time but for some reason ...

Tippling Club with Archer – OMG!!!

Tippling Club with Archer - OMG!!! So I did a work 'favour' for my bud Archer and in return, he and his company decided to recognise me with literally a 'free lunch'. I cannot thank him enough for this as he went way, way, way to the very top and took me for my first time to Tippling Club. He organised an off-piste menu with wine pairing. This was a 'fuck-me I am in heaven' food experience. This is Tippling Club with Archer - OMG!!! If you ever plan to go here you need some coin, but every ...

2 amazing new hawker finds…

2 amazing new hawker finds... I love gardening leave. It is giving me time during the day to be with #1 the last couple of days. What have we been doing? Food exploring together. Yesterday I had an interview so was out West and on the way drove past Timbre+. Remember me mentioned our mate @DaveLim @Empress leaving Siglap Hawker? Well, his son has opened at Timbre+, so I dragged Ollie over to meet me for lunch after the interview. So Timbre+ is number one of 2 amazing new hawker finds... Tim...
