discoveries after the wedding bells

9 thousand crab and other food adventures

the fourth day of our trip was dedicated to eating the famous singapore chili crab.  so we headed to vivo where we were just in time for lunch.

no-signboards

no signboard seafood restaurant was well recommended.  and we found out why.

crabs
the crabs were huge! and the chili sauce that it bathed in was deliciouso!

as you can see the plate is as big as the waiter’s waist!

crab-parts

c-tofu

even the home made bean curd was yummy and satisfied my taste with a crunchy texture.

we were however taken a back when our bill came…..hence the title of this blog! harharhar!  for a while my conscientious hubby was walking along dismayed.  i jokingly told him he should have porposed to me at such a grand restaurant and not after a hotdog at 7 eleven (hehehe!).

we then headed off to buy my camera…

i got an LX3 which i thought looked really good and according to hubby, had really good features.

(this was taken with my omnia)

the photos it took were ultra clear!  i was sure i could take good pictures with this camera.  the only detriment is my laziness to learn the technical side of photography.  that is why hubby is there for me! hehehe!

the next day, our last day in singapore hubby was determined to get his hands on the ever illusive (heart attack causing) sup tulang.  so we headed off to newton and found our red bulalo!

red-bulalo

for all of you who fight over the utak when you have bulalo for dinner, look no further, there are 6 marrow laden bones in this dish!  the color may mislead you to think that this is super spicy but its not.  it has just the right amount of heat and mysteriously the marrow does not get sebo even when its not hot.  hmmmm…

we ate this with carrot cake which we found out had no carrots at all…..it was made of raddish and oyster sauce.

and seafood fried rice.  this is ultra yummy!

we gulp this down with the help of sugar cane juice.

the satisfied hawker-eaters left with orange fingers.

and then my kaya toast

before heading back home to get our things ready for our flight.  *sad*

being the final day of our trip, i tried to see if we had tried everything we wanted.  we still had not tasted the ba ku teh and the singapore sling but we surely will be able to one of these days.  we loved singapore so much that we might just be back very soon……..
