Here's another food review and as we all LOVE food, I am sure you will love this recommendation.

Firstly, I must declare that I am a HUGE fan of Thai Food! The top 3 authentic Thai Food in my mind now would be (1) Nakhon Kitchen @ Kovan. (2) ...... a Thai food stall at Orchard Towers which I cannot remember the name already but I remember the way there and that is more important!

Please, if you have any great Thai Food places to recommend in Singapore, please leave a comment below or EMAIL me. Share the love!

I know it's funny that I am starting the post with my own self-shots but I kinda miss seeing me on my updates. I have been regularly updating so much of other photos but not my own.. I know you all also miss me a lot right?

I have reviewed before a Thai-Chinese food stall in another post which was called Hui Wei Chinese-Thai Cuisine.

This place I am reviewing is also a similar food stall located at Yishun! 
Address here : 1001 Yishun Industrial Park A
#01-1001 Yishun Industrial Food Centre
Tel: 67589121Fax: 67540053

Located in an industrial park, who would have thought the place will be so fully packed? They do not charge GST or service charge, which is definitely a plus point! We reached there around 7pm and the whole, yes, I mean WHOLE coffeeshop was packed, all of which were eating from "Taste Of Thailand"!  Thank God that Shi Hao and family stayed near there and were already queuing beforehand. We were to order our dishes before we were seated. 

Look at the crowd!

Here are the dishes that we had that day and as I was really hungry, I missed out a photo of the Tom Yam soup but we can all imagine what the soup looks like right? Hee. 

This is their famous fried fish and I must say that it was really a key dish that day. The skin was fried to the ultimate crispiness and it tasted really good when matched with the sauce. 

I give it a 4.8/5!

The reason why I took a close-up photo of the Pineapple Fried Rice was because all of us were so eager to dig into it that by the time I wanted to take a photo, there was only a quarter left! We had like 4 big plates of these! How hungry were we, can you imagine! There were 11 of us and as soon as the rice was out, we scooped it empty, almost immediately. 

4/5 for this dish!

Hot-Plate Tofu was a dish that I think many would enjoy because the piping-hot sauce had a tangible sour and spicy taste which was just right for a Thai-Chinese cuisine. We really enjoyed this dish and finished it before it even had a chance to turn cold.

4/5 for this! 

We actually ordered "Long Bean" vegetable but apparently, the wrong dish was presented. Being hungry ghosts, we didn't bother to ask for an exchange and ate it after all.  This was the  most "meh" dish that day because it tasted beyond average. Not to our liking, I guess? 

2/5 for this!

THIS was the star that day and we had ordered 2 of it! I just don't know of anyone who doesn't like fried squid or also known as "calamari" because it is just so nice! (Unless if you are allergic to seafood of couse!) As long as this dish was served piping hot, I am sure everyone will love it as much as we did. 


The "Lemon Chicken" was a tad too sour for me in my opinion but as I don't really like sour stuffs, it could be tasty for you if you are a person who loves sour food! The chicken was fried to a neat perfection so no complains about that. 


The "Tom Yam Soup" we had was a 4.9/5 for me as I am not only a sucker for soup, I especially love Tom Yam Soup! The one served here was really nice and really Thai! I dislike those Tom Yam Soup whereby all they do is add some tomato and some spices to conjure the Thai flavor into it, which normally fails and is always too blend. I don't think a portion of the soup was enough for the 11 of us though as we all seemed to enjoy the soup very much! 

I love gatherings like this whereby we catch-up and bond over good food but I hate to be the planner because usually, nobody cares about replying me and they usually take advantage of the planner so one of my resolution this year was to not bother so much! As compared to Hui Wei Chinese-Thai cuisine, both was affordable as we spent only about $11 per pax. So overall, it depends on where you stay and where you prefer to go for your meals! Both are highly recommended by food guru, Snow =D 

Ending this post with a really nice photo of James and Thaddeaus! 

I can only imagine how he will look as a father, real loving! :)

Xoxo, till the next time!

[ Review ] Judgement Day
Friday, April 26, 2013

JUDGEMENT DAY (世界末日) (2013)

I went to catch this movie with Hui Qi on the 24th of April and I must say that we really enjoyed it! The main reason I want to watch this movie was simple, it was a local production and I am all for supporting local production!

Before I start, check out the official trailer here :

Judgement Day started screening on the 18th of April 2013. It's rated PG13 and the movie is about 1 hours and 44 minutes long. Perfect and not too draggy in my opinion.

The cast consists of Henry Thia, Chua En Lai, Rebecca Lim, Guo Liang, Edwin Goh, Julie Tan, Sebastian Tan, Wang Yuqing, John Cheng, (Ah Nan) Mark Lee, Tender Huang and Alice Ko.

Below is the synopsis that I took from : Movie Xclusive's Website

Synopsis: JUDGEMENT DAY centers around several characters, from all works of life, as they decide to share their deepest secrets when it is believed that doomsday will happen in 72 hours. A corrupted cop confesses to his subordinate that he had accepted a bribe before. A married man tells his family his greatest wish is to become a woman. A wife reveals to her husband that she is actually secretly in love with her superior at work. A distraught young lady decides to run away from Singapore and heads for Cambodia, in the process; she breaks up with her finance. But miraculously, everyone survives judgement day. While the whole world rejoices; for those who made irreversible decisions, it is the end of their previous world…

Watching the movie made me tear a little because I was reminded of the late Ah Nan who never fails to bring joy to us in every production that he is in. He is a natural when it comes to comedy!

This film is directed and written by Ong Kuo Sin while produced by Mark Lee. The script was straightforward and it touches the depths of our hearts instantly. Every year, there will be rumors of the world ending and people never took them seriously.

I had to control myself from taking out my phone to tweet every meaningful quote found in the movie. It really teaches you to cherish your loved ones while you can and ALSO, it tells you to go for your dreams. Don't wait until you know that you are dying soon than try to fulfill it! We are not here to die, we are here to LIVE!

"If opportunity doesn't knock, build a door." I LIVE BY THIS QUOTE and I think you should too.

I liked the part in the film whereby Rebecca mentioned that we are all doing what everyone else is doing, it is really so mundane. Why fit in when we were born to stand out?

Dreams are really very important. Without a goal and without a dream, I would not have come this far in life. Believing in myself that I could be an author and write my life story out for the world to see was not easy BUT I did it, nevertheless. If not for my ambition, my goal, my dream in life, I may have succeeded in the past whenever I tried to commit suicide. I am grateful that I did not succumb to ending my life after the sexual abuse by my stepfather.... really really grateful I am still here to encourage people and change other's lives.

Anyhoo, do catch Judgement Day soon! Maybe today, after work? Come on, it is a Friday and I am sure that you will want to chill out after a hectic week and catch a movie right?

Till the next time, Xoxo.

"The owner and Executive Chef, Benny Se Teo says that the number ‘18’ is the moniker of the active local gang. 'I want delinquents to know that life offers many alternative paths. You don't have to identify as a gangster, you can be a chef’."

Today, I am going to blog about my FAVORITE TOPIC which I think all of you guys should already know by now, what is it if you have been following me on Social Media for a long long time..

I actually started a food blog some time ago but I have totally forgotten what is the name of it and I never kept up with making it a success so as you can see now, I should just blog on my own blog for now. Haha! Anyway, I am getting really bored of my blog layout and I suck at HTMLs and customized templates so is there any kind soul who wants to help me to re-design my blog template, renovate it and give it a new look? Email me and let me know! =)

Back to our topic...

I have heard of "Eighteen Chefs" since a long long time ago but I have never had a chance to try it because Tiong Bahru was somewhere I hardly travel to. In fact, I don't think I have ever been there, seriously! I stay in the North East now and the majority of my friends are all here so I rarely travel to the South or West side of Singapore unless there is a need to.

Just imagine my excitement when I heard that "Eighteen Chefs" was opening it's second branch at Cathay Cineleisure and it's a place that I frequent!!! This restaurant is not just a place to fill your stomach with good food, there is a story behind it. Chef Benny is Singapore's version of Jamie Oliver and he is someone whom I really respect and I would want to salute him one day. He actually trains ex-convicts who are serving their term for the last few months to provide them with a newer leash of life after they are released.

Photo credits to Chef's Benny FACEBOOK.

Do not be intimidated by his "garang" exterior. He may look really hard to approach but as soon as I saw him at Cathay Cineleisure last Saturday, I greeted him with a smile and he did the same. I really respect him a lot and I find him really cute! Haha. I looked up to him because he has this father figure and he also went through the same thing that my biological father did. My father should be around Chef Benny's age now I guess? I'm not sure and let's not get there.... Anyway, like my father, Chef Benny fought against drug addiction and was in and out of prison for a period of time. Overcoming all these was not easy and being able to stand out as a chef to help others in need is the most amazing thing ever. He started a restaurant to help wayward youths/convicts and I started a book to do that. Are we both amazing? We are but he is so much better! 

If you are an adventurous person, do try and be your chef when it comes to ordering the famous baked rice/pasta available there! There are 8 sauces offered, 3 ingredients and 12 top-ups to choose to pair with your pasta or rice. It is such an interesting perk for customers to fulfill their craving! 

I am a pasta person and I also love Thai cuisine at the same time so when I saw "Tom Yam Aglio Olio" on the menu, I almost jumped for joy! 

I had the "Soup Of The Day" for starters and it surprised me indeed. It looked really normal but it doesn't taste as near as the normal Campbell soup! (Although I am a HUGE fan of Campbell soup!) It not only has the normal mushroom taste but it has a tinge of corn to it. I don't like corn soup but this is just well balanced and satisfying! 
 They are also not stingy when it comes to the garlic bread. Some other western eateries gives a meagre piece of garlic bread and most of the time, there's no satisfaction after eating it! And the below portion is for 1 person, how good is that!
I looked around the restaurant before placing my order for the drink and because I took up Combo C which comes with soup and a drink, I could choose whether I wanted Ice Lemon Tea or any other available beverages. The ice lemon tea is really nice with just the right amount of sweet and sour taste for my taste-buds  You know how some ice lemon tea are either too bland or they are too sour? Here at Eighteen Chefs, it is just nice! 
My friend, Amanda chose the Cheese Baked Mussels Agio Olio and when it arrived at our table, I must say that it looked and smelled really appetizing!!
On the other hand, Hui Qi, as always like a big copycat, ordered the same dish as me. "Tom Yam Aglio Olio" and we were so happy with how it tasted! I am a fan of chilli flakes and I usually SUBMERGE my pasta with chilli flakes and it was such a huge mistake. The strong taste of "Tom Yam" was already infused deeply with the pasta when it was cook and the level of spiciness was already there and yet I act smart, added more chilli flakes and made myself tear by the overdose of chilli. This shows that the dish itself was already balanced for a mouth-watering after effect! They were very generous with the seafood that came with the Aglio Olio and as a seafood lover, I am addicted!

I know my photos don't look very appealing... (Sorry Chef Benny!) but I took them with my iPhone 5 so please forgive me. I still have not implemented the habit of bringing my camera out wherever I go! I will okay, in time to come! As of now, I can't find my camera... HAHAHAHA. I know it is somewhere and I will find it. See how positive I am! 

I am done talking about Eighteen Chefs and if you really want to know how good their food is, head down to the restaurant today, or tomorrow or this weekend! 

Like their facebook page now -> EIGHTEEN CHEFS!

Hui Qi and I can communicate without words and she always says that we communicate through satellite.
Actually... I don't really like her lah, I quite hate her lor. She is such an annoying peanut.

So, she wanted to take part in my Levi's giveaway and I didn't allow her so she threatened me via email. I feel so scared now and I think I need extreme protection from bodyguards now. 

Here was our email conversation yesterday :
