Phone dropped, screen cracked, screen died, tried to recover my phone data, failed to do so.

Just when I thought all was lost (literally; all my precious photos/videos were in my phone), I managed to miraculously connect my phone to the computer!
Gotta thank my dad for continuously trying to cheer me up when I was feeling really down about it, like bringing me for breakfast at Lorong Ah Soo. No matter the food or drinks we have, it's being in his company that really puts a smile on my face😊 P.S. the teh O & C at this hawker centre are by far the best! #Hawkerpedia


Great minds think alike😊

Quite liked the char siew rice actually. The meat was not too oily and fatty, just the way I like my char siew. I guess I know why Kay Lee is famous, and cost $4 million. #Hawkerpedia

Can you believe this bowl of fishball noodles + the bus ride to bedok and back = still cheaper than 1 plate of mixed rice at my office? (And wayyyyyy more delicious too)

The fishballs were so fresh, beehoon was cooked to perfection, and chilli had a nice kick to it. Now I know why the queue was so long, and boy was the wait worth it. Now if only I could sneak out of office to eat this everyday...

:) throwback to one of my fave wanton mee from Ah Wing's Wanton Mee that I had yesterday. It was definitely more than enough to put a smile on my face after a really tiring week. #Hawkerpedia #jiaklocal


Back in my primary and secondary school days, I'd look forward to the term holidays like any other kid. Not just because I could finally kick back and not have to worry about homework (for at least the first few days or weeks until I started to panic from the impending reopening of school gates), but also because I could get up a bit later to eat breakfast with my late grandma, whom I would call "mama". She would always ask me the night before what I wanted to eat for breakfast the next day, before reciting a whole list of items I could choose from, like cai dau kueh (carrot cake) or char siew pau (steamed pork bun). But I'd always choose my favourite — mi ciam kueh (pancake with peanut or red bean filling). I just loved the dense pancake, slathered with silky smooth red bean paste or crunchy peanuts in between. The next morning, she would walk all the way to the market just to buy what we wanted to eat, despite her having a difficult time walking, just so we'd be able to eat our favourite dishes from the market at our breakfast table together.

I never got to tell her this, but whatever food we had for breakfast didn't matter; what mattered to me was being able to eat with her by my side. Now whenever my mom buys back some mi ciam kueh, it always brings back good memories of stories and laughs we had at the breakfast table with mama. Mi ciam kueh always tasted sweeter when she was around, and I'm always thankful for the sweet memories I had with her. #Hawkerpedia


Teh O siu dai. This is how I usually start my Sunday mornings.

But today, as I slurp up my favourite bowl of beehoon, and sip on my pipping hot tea, I feel a sense of pride and gratefulness which I have not felt before. Today, Singapore turns 50 years old. And the reason I can eat this bowl of noodles and drink this cup of tea without having to worry about not having a roof over my head, or not having enough water, is because of the people who have worked so hard to make it all happen. The uncle and aunties who have to wake up early in the morning to serve us with delicious food, the cleaners who help keep our country clean, and the leaders of Singapore who have led us to where we are today, and so many more. As I was about to leave after eating, I thanked the uncle and aunty for the good bowl of bar chor mee. Beaming with pride, they waved goodbye and wished us a happy national day.

This is home. And I couldn't be more thankful to have one that has beautiful views, impeccable food, and people who live in peace and harmony.


If I could eat here everyday, I probably would. With consistently tasty soup, fresh fish, and a bunch of (my favourite) bittergourd, why not! I love taking a bite off a piece of fish, then slurping up a good spoonful of that clear yet flavourful soup. Ahhhhh, so satisfyingly good. What would I do without our comfy hawker food.

Since my parents read about a shop that serves up some delicious wanton mee at Empress Road Market we've never tried before, it was a perfect excuse to eat some for our weekly Sunday breakfast makan.

And boy, did the trip there pay off. In the words of my dad,"The noodles, the wanton, the sui gao (dumplings), the char siew. Everything was on point!" Took the words right out of my mouth! Most wanton mees that i like in sg have good noodles, good char siew, but none had wantons that really got me wanting more. These wantons however, were life changing. I'll never be able to eat commercially made wantons ever again.

When ever I want mee some really good wanton mee, especially with good wanton, I know where I'm going now.
