This is the second Saturday in a row where I’ve rolled outta bed at a too early hour. This time it was because of Isaac and Pui and their love of hiking and because of Jade Garden and my love of eating (btw, the Jade Garden at Plaza Singapore = not worth yer time).

Since dinner on Friday including Peking duck. Saturday included a hikety hike hike to burn that overzealous duckie off.


And then afterwards we had some roti.

jaggi’s northern indian cuisine

with 2 comments

I’m watching a show about that crazy huge Mormon family that has 17 kids. They have found another couple that also has a ridiculous number of kids and shares the same fashion sense. How nice.

A few weeks ago we had a team event (good segue, eh?) that involved running all over Mt Emily Park and shooting each other with 2.5 kilo laser tag guns. As could be expected, 3 hours of non mortal combat can really give a girl an appetite. Since we were in Little India we shlepped over to Jaggi’s which, unbeknownest to me, is a Singapore institution.


First of all, the place is immaculate. Very clean. Even the bathrooms are sparkly. They really took the government sponsored ‘Singapore-let’s-have-clean-bathrooms’ initiative seriously. I can respect that. Nags, Chandra, Pearl and the rest of the crew did all of the ordering while I busied myself with taking pictures.

tandoori chicken a la room service

leave a comment »


Hands down the best meal I had in India was served by the swanky Novotel Hyderabad. Beautfully spiced and baked tandoori chicken served with smooth and creamy dal. Topped with a small side salad and steamy, crusty naan. The chicken portions were HUGE on this one. Two really big chicken legs with that tasty blackened skin from being in the tandoor. You could really taste the yogurt seasonings. I had dal a bunch of times while I was in India and this was the best. Creamy with a kick, the texture was really above par and the sour cream swirl gave it a nice touch. This meal left me happy and full!
