Lion City - Singapore 2011 - Day 3

Third day, we don't have any plan and our flight was in the late afternoon. Actually i do plan to join "duck tour" on day 3 morning since we are quite free with no plan. After checking with the hotel concierge, they said the tour only available at 1pm. It will be a bit too rush for us if we join the tour.

Since with no plan, we woke up quite late, take our own sweet time, get ready, and we headed to Vivo City (again) to have our brunch with my sister in law's mother and aunty, since they are all in Singapore.

My sister in law keep telling us, she want to bring us to this restaurant to have lunch, she said it is really nice, she was here during her last visit. And i have to agree with her on the food, and the price very good too. hahahahhahah

Bosses Restaurant....(ok, someone spot the spelling mistake when i post this picture up in my Facebook)

ok...the spelling on this wet tissue is correct. :)

all black and white concept...very unique.

we were there early, that explain not much patrons. Actually, the restaurant was full, we told them since we are here, just let us go in...pleaseeeee....but they keep telling us they are full, we said we come all the way from Malaysia, and we didn't kow we have to make booking. After few "please", the captain lead us in. LOL

Since sister in law been there before, so we let her do the food ordering....and at the end i think she over order!! Look at the food, with 6 ladies + 4 kids + 1 baby how to finish?? tsk tsk tsk...

the tidbits or appetizer - fish skin? Hmmmm..usually i don't fancy those skin skin things, but this one quite tasty and it is very crispy.

egg tarts...hmmm..i don't take egg tart, so cannot comment on this.

xiao long pau - i tell you, this is super nice, i think a lot better than the famous one in KL.

char siew pau, nice.

hmmmm...cannot recall what is this...but i know it's something spicy, fish and chicken combination, quite tasty.

siew mai...

taufu soup...

Cod fish..

sweet and sour meat for the kids. This is good, i love it too.

crispy chicken with lots of fried garlic on top.

braised sea cucumber + some type of mushroom. Can you believe, i had three huge cucumber to myself!! Because my sister in law's mother and aunty they don't eat sea cucumber!! *burp*

steam custard bun (nai yew pau) we have to ta pow this...

this one is interesting. A plate of crispy rice and they pour it into the hot soup, it's like having rice in soup, but this is tasty, something like what i had it in Hong Kong two years back.

After the heavy brunch, we still got sometime to kill. Sister in law and her mother they decide to have some shopping at Vivo City and my hub sister want to go back to USS to get something. Me and the boys go with my hub sister, better not to let her go alone, and before we take the escalator up to the top floor to take the monorail, to our horror, it is FULL OF PEOPLE! The queue was so long till they have to block off the escalator avoiding people keep going up. Most of them are foreigner, and everyone were pushing away, i have to hold my boys tight, oh dear, i think this is the most horror time. People push till my boys stuck aside and we can't walk up to the escalator, lucky there are security, he let us with kids to go first.

look at the madness, i thought i am in some foreign country!!!!!!!!

we got a hard time to board the monorail, everyone not queuing, once they saw the train arrived, we don't need to walk and those behind you and beside you will push and squeeze till we stuck our face on the monorail door, yes, it is that bad!!!! I am so worried my boys, i hold one, and my hub sister help me hold one, we had to hold them so so tight scare lost them behind. I told hub sister, lucky sister in law didn't follow us, otherwise she will give birth her baby here!!! Everyone not considerate till they jam the monorail, till the staff have to "pull" the extra people out from the cabin. tsk tsk tsk ...what an experience. It actually just a short distance from Vivo City to USS, but the drama took us almost 40 minutes to reach USS!!!

Reach USS, hub sister quickly get what she want, and i quickly get some shirt from there and took some picture and we left.

another picture at USS.

Meet up with sister in law, then we head back to hotel, packed and ready to go to airport.

time to leave...and this is my first trip in Singapore, short trip but fruitful! Me and the boys enjoy very much.
