i know i pangsehed u guys for the jurong east buffet a couple of times saying i dont want to eat buffet yet i went for a buffet myself as pointed out by liangjun, i must say free food tastes slightly better. haa.. we had a voucher for the m hotel 'the buffet' and it requires reservation a couple of days in advance so we failed to get a table for lunch a few times and finally! we got to eat at the highly recommended 'the buffet' yesterday! yay~
they have lots of interesting starters. u can make ur own caesar salad topped with roasted pine nuts and their chawsiew n shaorou are actually pretty yummy. haa.. sushi was alright only, coz it's not a japanese restuarant afterall mah..
mussels with the lemon butter garlic sauce like fish&co's and salmon with mustard sauce. their tempura is pretty good too! does anyone know how to fry crispy tempura? the last time i attempted, it was just fried prawns w batter. haa.. it didn't fluff up like a tempura lar!
roast beef with mustart sauce (again). seems like they like to add mustard into quite alot of food. haa.. and laksa laksa~
and the best way to end off a super heavy dinner is with super lot of desserts! haaa.. there were like 2 types of chocolate cakes, different types of mini french pastries, small shotglasses of lychee w aloe vera, mango pudding, banana crumble, ice cream, fruits. quite abit of variety lar. the banana crumble is nice..but....the vanilla sauce that we poured all over it tastes like the chinese almond (xing ren). waaaaaaaaaaaaah...i almost died when i took the plate back to the table. the smell was super overpowering and it covered up the taste of the bananas lar..which was a pity..next time, when u see sauces do just pour it at a corner of ur plate just in case it sucks. haa
actually, i dint eat alot, just alittle of everything but i was so supersupersuper full. urgh.. and the table next to us was a couple who started eating before us and left later than us. each of them had their own plates full of food while junming n i were sharing every plate of food we took. and the irritating thing abt that couple is that the girl is super skinny. argh!!!! how i wish i have an appetite to match my greed and can be skinny..hm..seems like too much to ask for.haa..
and after a heavy meal, wat can be better than taking a nap right outside the restuarant. haaa..

Siem Reap: Home to the ancient Khmer Angkor temples; such remarkable structures that it has a place as one of the wonders of the world. It is a feat of ancient architecture that amazes till now. A pride of Asia culture, and a priceless artefact left in time.
To be standing in it is a feeling indescribable - you will have to be there yourself. 'Nuff said.

Since im having such a long holiday and im basically slacking my life away at the moment, i aim to bake as many things as i can!! but quite a few flopped for the first time lar. haa..
This is jellyhearts, of coz it doesnt look as pro as the one where i got the recipe from. i wonder how she managed to cut them out so nicely.
It is actually non-baked cheese together with a layer of jelly on top. Anyone of u know whether outside bakeries or cafes sell these jellyhearts? never seen them sold outside before..
After conquering the non-baked cheesecake (haa!), i decided to attempt the baked kind. ok, it looks really bad. haa.. when i popped it into the oven to bake and turned around to wash the dishes, it burnt. haa.. smoke was came out of the oven. haa.. so i scraped off the top layer and that's why it looks so funny lar. haa..BUT! it doesn't taste too bad! yay~ even my sister who doesn't really love cheesecake said it's nice. haaa.. ok lar, looks-wise like minus 100 points but i'll be trying it again and hopefully it'd turn out well! haa..
Anyway, i found blogs of singaporean stay-home moms who cook and bake really often. And mrs goh, they somehow remind me of u. haa.. This Happy Home Baking is a really interesting website. she bakes with and for her two boys so i feel that her kids must be having a fun-filled childhood.. haa.. i aim to learn to bake properly so can force my kids to eat wat i bake next time. muahahahaaa.. =]

i am here to advertise for my sister's small business venture with her friends. they bought clothes from overseas and are selling them off the internet. http://propergender.livejournal.com/
i've seen the stuff they bought back and they really are pretty nice stuff and i even have some of them lar. the t-shirts fits real good and really comfortable. ok lar, ive got limited vocab but the clothes are pretty in trend stuff i guess. and they are selling it cheap. cheapcheapcheap coz it's their first attempt so they want to set up a good rep, try it out first before they make future adjustments.
i posted one of the t-shirts they are selling lar. its cheap man, only 10 bucks. u can't find any nice decent t-shirts for 10 bucks nowadays. haa.. and say u guys like the photos! coz i took them! haaa..think i may have some photography skills afterall! haaa..
