Orchard Road

If you are a shopaholic, you must be familiar with Orchard Road in Singapore. Usually I come here to eat Indonesian food (yes, there are a lot of Indonesian restaurant in this area) and Great Singapore Sale to get some apparels or Gundam plastic models.

Nasi padang

For those of you who wonder about “Nasi Padang” in this post, I just had it for dinner with my friends. There are a couple of places in Singapore you can enjoy original “Nasi Padang”. As long as the restaurant name is in Indonesian and it is cooked by Indonesian, then I can guarantee that you will say “marvelous” after you finished the meal.

This is what I had for dinner. I chose spicy chicken, spinach and jackfruit curry as the dishes. The rice was covered with curry gravy. I had it at Lucky Plaza at Orchard Road.

Boxes from Singapore

I believe most of you might have read the main author’s post on his packing for his departure to Melbourne, Australia. In case you might have forgotten, here are the links to part 1 and part 2.

So I happen to be the lucky one who receive the boxes in Melbourne. Before the packing which he shared in this blog, he has actually shipped some of his gundam plastic models which weighed approximately 9kg in total. The boxes he used was the same box (Dell box) in his posts.

I am sure most of you in Australia, if not all, would have heard about the IPO for Royal Wolf. The IPO was opened on Friday, 20th May 2011, and will close on Friday, 27th May 2011. The IPO price is $1.83 per share, but the minimum investment is $2,000 AUD, which is equivalent to approximately 1,092 shares. I believe the IPO is only opened to investors in Australia.

Royal wolf is in the industry of leasing and selling shipping containers. The main markets are in Australia and New Zealand. The proceeds of the IPO are intended to pay off the debts and license fees, and also to cover IPO-related expenses.

Sweet Corn Soup

One of my favourite soup. So I am going to share the recipe with you. If you do not have time to grate the corns, you can buy the creamed corn in a can and frozen corn kernels. My mom would shred the chicken if she cooks this. But as for me, I do not shred my chicken, as the preparation time will be longer.

It has been years since I last ate my mom’s braised pork belly. I missed this food so much. I can hardly find a place in Melbourne which sells this dish. Most of them only have braised beef. So I decided to make my own. This is a popular dish in Taiwan. There are many versions for this dish, some people like it dark, while my family prefer a light color.
