Continue back to day 2 from my trip in Singapore. After I had katsu for lunch with my sister, we took a bus from Orchard Road to Bugis Junction. My sis took the MRT to go home and I left behind to look around.
Any expert knows what BHG means? Two years ago was the first time I came to Bugis Junction and I ate a green tea ice-cream that is not too bad. The stall is still there, it just opened two years ago when I came here. It's a Japanese ice-cream I think, the name is Uzumaki. It is how the ice-cream done, after you place your order, the staff will put a frozen cup of ice-cream in to the pressing machine, and out come the green tea ice-cream. You can choose cone or cup.
The texture of the ice-cream is quite solid and there's a strong taste of green tea in the ice-cream. For SGD 4, this ice-cream is a little bit on the steep side. I still prefer Haagen Daz or New Zealand Natural ice-cream.
After 2 to 3 hours of walking around, I got tired. I walked across the street where there are a few Colonial time shop lots that's still remain. Reminds me of Petaling Street or Malacca in Malaysia. The shop here are now occupied by restaurants, bistros and pubs. I found that Singaporean now like Sze Chuan steamboat a lot because there's already a few Sze Chuan steamboat restaurant here. There's also a Hong Kong chay chan tang style restaurant, Korean restaurant, Thai restaurant, and Japanese restaurant.
I found a restaurant & pub that sell my favourite beer and it's happy hour time. I'm happy. For SGD 19 I get 2 glasses 1 1/2 pint of Hoegaarden Light. It cost about RM 20-22 just for a pint in Malaysia. I regretted it after that because I didn't expect it to be such a large glass of Hoegaarden and I have to drink two glasses. I was bloody full.
I need to use both hand to hold it up.
I was drinking here.
Such a small lane.
After I was fully loaded with beer in my belly, I went to a local restaurant at the end of the street and try out a local Singapore delicacy, Fried Hokkien mee, this is not our KL style or Penang style Hokkien mee. It is something like fried mee with prawn added with a wet egg based sauce. The restaurant I went to claimed to be in business since 1969 but the prawn given to me is not very fresh and the taste is not that great. I think it was cooked by a Mainland China lady working there. I don't even want to mention the name of the restaurant here. Anyone knows any good Fried Hokkien mee in Singapore?
The not so good Hokkien Mee.
After that disappointed dinner, I went back to Bugis Junction to go to the MRT station, passed by a Beard Papa stall doing promotion of SGD 10 for 6 puffs. So I bought half a dozen of creamy puffs and took the MRT to go to Simei station. From there took bus No. 5 to go back to my sis's place.
