A belated late Happy (Chinese) New Year from me (LoosSerine) and my sister (MoonlightWalnut).
I know that mostly upto now it has only been my sister blogging with me promising to do so. You’ll likely see me blog about films, music, tv, games and a LOT of food, with the occasional current event bugging me – something political perhaps.
After arriving, went with colleagues to Clarke Quay for the usual ‘tourist’ fare you’d expect to find in any major city.
After wandering around for one of our colleagues who arrived on a later flight, we finally settled to try out the Thai restaurant (Renn Thai). Of course, having not done any research on where best to eat out, we found ourselves at this relatively well situated restaurant on the banks of the Singapore river.
For anyone that knows me, Ice Tea is my most preferred drink and in this case, having not slept for close to 40 hours, the sight of ‘Ice Lemon Tea’ on the drinks menu had me all excited. As I’m writing this quite a while after this meal (as I’ve delayed blogging for such a long time), I’ve since had much better ‘homemade’ Iced Tea, but at the time, it was just a joy to have an iced drink in the humid Singapore climate.
Ordered the Papaya Salad, immediately hits you with the chilli and fish sauce, nothing to shout about as I’ve had Papaya Salad before which tasted about the same. Just something fresh and crunchy.
Also ordered the Platter (forgot what it was actually called), just a combination of fried stuff, if anything I think the oil needed changing as it had a lingering over fried after taste, the chicken also was a bit dry and difficult to remove from the skewers.
As it was quite a long plate, I couldn’t really get the entire platter in one shot. Here you can see the fried rice cakes, which was quite bland and not at all memorable.
As my colleagues ordered the Green Curry, I felt like something more substantial so went for the Seafood Claypot with Tofu. Was a mishmash of ingredients with no distinct seafood flavour coming through. The peppers overwhelmed the dish as it was all that could be tasted from the sauce. Though I love anything with Tofu so the fried tofu in the dish was a pleasant presence.
Also ordered a Lychee drink, I couldn’t remember what it was actually called (perhaps Lychee Cooler), which turned out quite green but it was labeled as a detox drink and went down well enough that the rest of my colleagues also went for it.
That’s the first day done. Now 89 more. Hahaha, and yes, I did take photos of every meal I had.That’s all for first post as well.
