Birthday Party at Wo Peng on Macpherson Road

Blow Job

Performing a blowjob

The story goes like this:

A group of 40 year old buddies discuss where they should meet for dinner.

Finally it is agreed upon that they should meet at the Ocean View restaurant because the waitress’s there have low cut blouses and are pretty.

10 years later, at 50 years of age, the group again talks about where they should meet for dinner. Finally it is agreed that they should meet at the Ocean View restaurant because the food is very good and they have an excellent wine selection.

10 years later at 60 years of age, the group again discusses where they should meet. Finally it is agreed that they should meet at the Ocean View restaurant because they can eat there in peace and quiet and the restaurant has a beautiful view of the ocean.

10 years later, at 70 years of age, the group once again discusses where they should meet. Finally it is agreed that they should meet at the Ocean View restaurant because the restaurant is wheel chair accessible and they even have an elevator.

10 years later, at 80 years of age, the group once again talks about where they should meet for dinner. Finally it is agreed that they should meet at the Ocean View restaurant because they have never been there before.

Like the buddies, we’re never at a lost for places to celebrate our consistency in avoiding death since we were born, but I was glad to that Wo Peng was chosen as I think it was time for a visit.

Cooking Lap Mei Fan for potluck parties

The raw materials.

Yes, yes, I’ve written about cooking Lap Mei Fan (Claypot Rice) before, but if you are like me, you will totally understand how I feel about cooking for parties. Especially if the party concerned included well-established foodies with well-established palates.

Cooking Lap Mei Fan for 2 is easy and effortless but cooking for 8 or more needs a cunning plan and some elbow grease. Figuratively speaking, of course.

Dim Sum update at Yan Ting

Steamed Prawns in Crystal Skin (Har Gow)

October 10th is a time when hundreds of photographers in Singapore flock together and participate in the Canon PhotoMarathon. This is where the competition organizers release a word periodically over a day and photo enthusiasts race to photograph something thematic.

Unfortunately, words were repeated; it got banal, so we got dim sum instead.

Royal China at the Raffles Hotel

Chaxiubao

The Dimsumdolly is leaving because she got a great gig in the dim sum paradise that is Hong Kong. Naturally, didiot that I am, I suggested dim sum for lunch to catch up.

And this being my 3rd dim sum lunch for 2009, I was glad that the DSD choose Royal China at the Raffles Hotel because it’s my favorite place for dim sum.

Of course, there’s an ulterior motive involved: I love dim sum (and eating in general) but it’s very difficult to find someone craz like-minded enough to go gallivanting all over, so I tend to seize every opportunity, with an almost sociopathic intensity which has, on occasion, given rise to misunderstanding.

A makankaki, as Isildur would put it, “it is… precious to me…”

Eating feral birds at Han Lok Yuen on Lamma Island

I Can Has Roast Feral Bird (That Was Left-handed!)

I was pretty resistant to the plan of going to Lanma Island mainly because, thus far, my island sojourns have been dismal affairs involving indescriminate camouflage, too much humidity and not enough air-conditioning. “Hot and wet” is great if it’s a woman but if it’s the weather: get back, brother, get back.

(You know how some bloggers drop names using nicknames with a single letter like “I”, “V” or “N”? It’s not as fun to read, so from now on I’m gonna use a better class of nicknames that truly mask identities.)

Anyway, I finally relented when I got an email from DrZO.UK who wrote along the lines of “Dear NinjaHelloKitty, BooBooKittyFuc Pepper and I have longed to visit Lanma Island and hope that you can join us”.

Oooookay… When you put it like that…
