Last Saturday met up with my lovely cousins to celebrate birthday… (i know right, my birthday celebration prolong till now and it is still not over YET!) we really had a GREAT time together! EAT EAT EAT EAT EAT and still EATTTTTT and it was all so impromptu!

Lor Mee @ Bukit Purmei

On the way to prive, my cousin was boasting about this legendary (some say best in Singapore) Lor Mee… so we decided to give it a try after our LIGHT brunch! hahahaha… i was rather excited about it, as i heard a lot about it from another friend who really love Lor Mee… no harm trying right? heehee…

Not too sure if you know t

what greeted us was shocking!



hahahahaha… it is almost 3pm and what were these people doing here? Queuing for Lor Mee!!!! my excitement was washed away by the long queue and eventually from excitement it turns to skepticism… please let it not fail me hor~

Finally after 20 min, it is almost our turn!!!!

Bukit Purmei Lor Mee (Rating: 3.2 / 5.0)


Presenting to you~~~~ Bukit Purmei Lor Mee!

They have three pricing with three different colors of bowl to differentiate…

Red: $2.50 / Green: $3.00 / Yellow: $3.50

i know right? i was so bored when i was queuing that i even have the time to check out the colors of the bowl! hahahaha… okay let’s start with what i love about this stall, their generosity of ingredients! Fish Cake, Char Siew, 五香, 三成肉, 脆脆 (crispy flour) and some other unknown items that i can’t figure out what… anyway… what i dislike about their Lor Mee is their base, taste a little too blend for me… overall, i think not really worth the queue lah… but no harm to try if you are near the place! According to my cousins, their base will stay as sticky after you have stir a multiple time… :)


Pocky Love Affair

after the very FULL attempt of Lor Mee, we head home for a session of kinect… and we bought a series of different pocky! Lychee, blueberry and my fav almond crunch! i must say blueberry one is the nicest!!!! nom nom nom!


Katong Chicken Rice

After our kinect session, my cousin suggested to head down to the east for a GOOD dinner to end the celebration well! OMG! AGAIN, my cousin was boasting about this best chicken rice in singapore… seriously i was a little erm… after the unsuccessful attempt of Lor Mee… but still i chose to TRUST and BELIEVE! hahahahahaa…

Here we are!



Bright and Cheerful stall! I was infected with the bright and cheerful atmosphere though! Happy stall, happy stall owner, happy food and happy customers! That is what my boss always tell me! and i sincerely BELIEVE it! :))

i think food is very magical! It can lift up one’s spirit, and especially when it is prepared by someone with love! :) my 101 theory about food!

Katong Chicken Rice (Rating: 4.8 / 5.0)


i love their chicken! The rice may not be so fantastic, but their chicken made it all up! cold white skin chicken tender and soft! LOVE IT TOTALLY!

if you know me well, i seldom have chicken rice outside, not that i don’t like chicken rice, but just that i find many stalls are selling sub-standard chicken rice that totally CMI!


Their chicken meat is cold, yet without the ‘Leng Leng’ uncooked feeling… plus they don’t have a layer of those disgusting jelly fats… thumbs up for their skin!!!! according to ongmengching, eating chicken skin will make you look pretty! hahahaha… if you truly believe, it will happen!


I love their bean sprout too! refreshing, love it with their fried garlic and soy sauce! a must order with the chicken rice!!!! craving it NOW! hahahahaa… :)

what i love about this stall is not only their tender chicken, but their generosity with their free flow of ah char ah char and soup!  I LOVE THEIR AH CHAR AH CHAR!!! very very very refreshing!!!!! big big piece of pineapple and well marinated!!! i love the happy aunty too and she actually stays really near me! hahahaha… this is really a MUST TRY!
