The duck noodles from Heng Huat Boon Lay Boneless Duck Noodles (興發文礼起骨鸭面) is Dad's absolute favorite. He will have this and nothing else whenever we came to Boon Lay Place Food Village.

At $3.50, the duck noodles here is quite value for money. Not only is there a generous mound of noodles below, the top is almost covered by the taugeh which is equally plentiful. Sweeping the taugeh aside will reveal the boneless duck meat hidden below.

Boon Lay Power Nasi Lemak @ Boon Lay Place Food Village

Even though I visit Boon Lay Place Food Village quite frequently, I have never tried this Boon Lay Power Nasi Lemak before as I thought that they only cater to the dinner crowd.

A week ago, I was there to do some marketing with my folks when I happened to see the stall open. I did not know that they open in the mornings. Did they change operating hours or have I thought wrongly all these years?

Whatever it is, I knew then that I had to give it a try to know how "power" their Nasi Lemak really is. 

There is a customer in front of me so while waiting for him to be served, I glanced around the stall and noticed that they also sell an assortment of ala carte ingredients which you can choose for your coconut rice.

Have you ever heard of "Chilli Mee" (辣椒面) before?

This stall located on the second storey of Golden Mile Complex sells exactly that, together with Prawn Mee (肉骨虾面) and Laksa (叻沙).

This is the first time I have heard of "Chilli Mee" and I do not have the slightest clue what it really is. Consisting of ingredients borrowed from the Prawn Mee and Laksa, the impression this bowl of Chili Mee give me is japalang because it is "a mix of everything".

I suppose it got its name due to the noodles being slathered with a generous portion of the savoury chilli sauce.

Ke Shuang Xing Fried Carrot Cake (柯双兴菜头粿) has been dishing out fried carrot cake (Chai Tow Kway) for five decades but just this month, they have roll out a new offering which is a marriage between Chai Tow Kway and Wah Kueh.

Wah Kueh (碗糕), as its name implies, is a bowl-sized rice pudding (imagine a giant Chwee Kueh) with toppings and sauce drizzled over it.

Unfortunately, this is a fast disappearing dish in Singapore. I myself have eaten it only once at Bukit Merah Food Centre while on my way to CMPB from Redhill more than 10 years ago. I have even forgotten how it taste like now.

Ivan, the owner of Ke Shuang Xing Fried Carrot Cake decided to bring this old favorite back and merge it with their Chai Tow Kway.

Qianhu Fish Farm: 9th Fish-Hub Competition 2016 - Flowerhorn Unity

I found out from Qianhu's Facebook about this 9th Fish-Hub Competition 2016 Flowerhorn Unity event so I made my way to the fish farm since I also need to get some supplies.

The event is held right in front of the shuttle bus drop-off point. There are a total of four classes and each class had fifteen entries totaling 60 tanks of flowerhorns.

I only took photos of the Class 1 Category A winners. I did not stay for the prize-giving.

My last visit to Redhill Food Centre was more than 10 years ago when I walk pass it from Redhill MRT Station while on my way to have my pre-NS checkup at CMPB.

At that time, I knew nothing about the many good food to be found in this old, humble estate. For my return after more than a decade, I did some research online and compiled a list of the must-eats here at the food centre.

Among the popular stalls that made it to my list is (#01-09), whose Fried Chicken Wings is supposedly so good that our Prime Minister Lee was spotted in the queue. Then, there is also Seng Heng Duck Mee (#01-28), Bak Kee Satay Beehoon (#01-42) and Hua Kee Chicken Rice (#01-72).

Harmony In Diversity Gallery

bahá'í faith, buddhism, christianity, harmony in diversity, hdg, hinduism, inter religious organisation, iro, islam, jainism, judaism, religious harmony, sgsecure, sikhism, taoism, zoroastrianism,

Do you know how many different faiths are being practiced here in Singapore? Well, apart from the usual Islam, Hinduism, Christianity and Buddhism, that is.

Like the majority of you, I was clueless about it too but after visiting the Harmony In Diversity Gallery, I learned that there is also the Bahá'í Faith, Zoroastrianism, Taoism, Sikhism, Judaism and Jainism.

To be honest, I have not even heard about some of them before but these ten faiths made up the Inter-Religious Organisation (IRO) in Singapore which was founded way back in 1949 to promote peace and religious harmony. I am surprised such an organization exists and that it even have a history of 67 years!

The IRO regularly conducts inter-faith prayers and blessings at launching ceremonies of public and private institutions such as the Downtown Line 2 and F1 tracks among others.
