Pork Ribs with Chestnut Soup

Today i am lazy to go Aunty Irene house learn new items, and Pork Ribs with Chestnut Soup comes into my mind yesterday when i come across lotus seed, and also i manage to buy chestnut at supermarket, i saw pork ribs at supermarket yesterday, but it don't looks attractive, so this morning i went to West Coast Market to buy pork ribs and prepare this soup.

Mainland Tropical Fish Farm/Aqua Fauna Centre-Kid's Kampong/Ericsson Pet Farm on 29th December 2007

Yesterday (Saturday) is a weekend, so decided to visit some places which have not been to before. This time round, went to Pasir Ris Area.

First stop is MainLand Tropical Fish Farm

Beside those fishes in the pond, there are many types of fishes for sales too.

Then it's off to Aqua Fauna Centre and Kid's Kampong.

Those who wants to do some fishing, can pay a small fee to go in to catch small fishes.

There's a pet hotel there also, at first thought that this dog belongs to the owner there, but it is not, and was told that people can send in their dog there if they are away and they do dog training too.

Then went to Ericsson Pet Farm, it's quite a distance from the main road and there's no bus going in there , luckily it is not raining, if not, it will be inconvenient. But quite disappointed with this place, as nothing much there to see. They sell dogs/cats/pets accessories, etc...

These are some of the dog saw from there.

Christmas Day 25th December 2007

Crowds that have been forming in the afternoon

Crews preparing the stage for the performance at night.

Have been going to Orchard Road for the past few years during Christmas Day at night time and it is extremely crowded, but this year for a change, went in the afternoon instead and as usual it is crowded also. Last year Christmas Day was an unlucky year for me as i lost my hp in Orchard Road. When alighted at Orchard MRT station, friends and i was telling each other that we switch our hp to the loudest ringing tone so that if we lost each other, we can hear the ringing tone when we contact each other. After walking for some time, we went to Wisma Food Republic to have a drink when i realise that my hp is missing. Friend use her hp to call my hp and it is off. It was then that i realise that my hp is stolen or pickpocket. If i were to drop my hp, my hp won't be switch off but it was off. This incident remind me that i have to be careful with my belonging next time.

Coffee Butter Cake

Coffee Butter Cake comes into my mind, so yesterday consult Aunty Irene whether if the new Butter Cake recipe can be used to make Coffee Butter Cake, and she teach me the method of doing it. Thanks to Aunty Irene for the guidance.

After Aunty Irene see the cake, sure kanna 打屁股by her because the top of the cake turn out to be burnt. No wonder i smell a burning smell instead of the cake smell when inside the oven. But the inside of the cake is still okie. After trying it, i find that i still prefer the Pandan Butter Cake as it is more fragrant.
