Sushi Tei @ Tampines 1

There were 3 of us at Sushi Tei (Tampines 1) for lunch. We ordered a bowl of Ramen, Salmon+rice, Ungani + rice, a salad and 2 plates of 4 pieces salmon sushi. The food was well below our expectation and costly too. They charged for the wet paper towel (20c) as well $1.20 for a cup of Japanese tea.
Since the food wasn't good and pricey, we promised never to visit any Sushi Tei anymore.

18 Chefs@ NEX Mall (lunch)

As promised, we went to 18 Chef @ Nex Mall at Serangoon for our lunch. This time I took a couple of photos of our meals. We chose the $13+ beef with pasta and the Japanese beef curry rice ($14.80) lunch set. Both set came with a big bottle of ice-lemon tea and chicken cream soup. We also ordered an extra bowl of double chilli cheese fries ($7).
18 Chefs does not impose the 10% charge but only the 7% GST.
Overall, we spent about $37 which is definitely inexpensive, The food is good and would give the other western food restaurants like Buddy and Hot Tomato a run for their money.

Lunch@18 Chefs, Downtown East

My friend and I had our lunch at 18 Chefs. Being a Sunday, the place was packed but am quite sure it is busy as usual on any weekdays.
The food was good and priced reasonably. The service was also as good.
Many diners were young people and I think I was the oldest customer at that time.
I regret not taking photos of the food we had and the restaurant. However, I will definitely visit it again and this time I won't forget to snap some photos.

Since we were passing by Old Airport Road on our way home, we stopped by the Hawker Center and tried the Whitley Road Prawn Mee's noodle. There was around 6 people in the queue ahead of me. It took almost 30 minutes for me to get our prawn mee. There is nothing to rave about this stall's prawn mee. We ordered the $5 a bowl type which came with little noodles and 2 medium size prawns.
When we came home we felt very thirsty and drank plenty of water. The hawkers must have added lots of msg in the soup.
Will not recommend anyone to eat this mee.

Come to MY where you can afford a big garden to grow your papaya and other fruits.
Land and houses are darn cheap not like in SG.

Agree with the previous poster.Uncle BT should move to Malaysia. Bigger space,lower pace of life and lower cost of living.

Some readers posted the above comments inviting me to live in Malaysia where houses,land, cost of living is low. I agree with and would like to thank them.
I am considering moving over to Malaysia and retire there permanently. I am studying the program called "Malaysia my second home" whereby you place a sum of MYR 150,000 (S$ 50,000) in a Malaysian bank as fixed deposit and get a 10 year visa to live in any part of a Malaysia.
I think it make sense to spend retirement in MY. A car that cost S$150,000 can be bought for S$30,000 or MYR 90,000. House??.... a landed property say in Malacca cost about S$300,000 (same one cost at least S$3 million !
I will give myself another year or so and may move to MY.

Hong Kong tolong (please) return our terrexes

Meeting ex colleagues

I almost bumped into Eve an ex stewardess yesterday at a shopping complex. Somehow because of my busy schedule and was in a great hurry, I avoided Eve. We haven't met for many years and although Eve was still slim she didn't look healthy and has aged so much.
When I was about to pay for my stuff at the cashier counter, someone called out my name. Wow it was my ex manager, Jim. He looked old and haggard (I supposed me too huh), probably about 80 years of age. We chatted for a while and must admit that although I have never like Jim, he was nice and warm towards me. Jim offered to buy me a coffee at a nearby Toast Box but I declined.
We parted ways and I headed for the car park while he proceeded to have his coffee.
