Weekend Indulgence

Weekend Indulgence

After craving chili crabs for two days, I finally went to Chinatown to satisfy my longing. Why Chinatown? The last time I did a television commercial there, the chili crabs were absolutely delicious. They were big and juicy and the chili-egg gravy was thick and had just the right tinge of spicy and sweet. So I went back to the exact same store last weekend, only to be met with a huge food fest crowd. For $15, they had 25 tokens that they could use to swap for food, pretty good deal I must say! Perhaps it was the overwhelming orders, shortage of crabs, or perhaps the art director for the television commercial placed a different sort of order the last time we were there, because this time, the crabs were smaller, less fleshy and weren’t too fresh. The gravy was too sweet and they were still out of man-tous (since the last time we shot there).  I know I won’t be craving for chili crabs for a while.

The best part of the night was the dessert. I love almond paste and since they ran out of it by that time of the night, it was almond shaved ice for me! Yipeee!

  10. Dear Joanne,

    I’m very sad. my friend hads just quarrelled wif me over the other friend. cuz it’s like this, i just transferred to this sch. denise and jessica are best friends and i unknowingly became their best friend. we were very happy together but because of JEALOUSY, my friend Jessica turned out to quarrel with me as Denise likes me and denise tend to follow me all the time and like yar..so denise and me are very close to each other then. therefore jessica was kind of pissed off and she quarrelled with me. i felt that it was unfair and so i scolded her. it’s been a month that we havent been talking to each other. this is seriously saddening. have u had any problems like this before? can u help me?pls ?i would die of this. thx..sorry to disturb u Joanne Jiee. =[ take care.

    from viviane.

I seems that u are enjoying eating crabs. I would like to recommend u another restaurant. The name of the Teochew Restaurant Huat Kee. I am not too sure whether have u heard before. It was located at the street is 74 Amoy Street. 🙂 The cold crab is nice. U should go there and try. A lot customers enjoyed eating at Teochew Restaurant Huat Kee:)
