The New Harbour Cafe & Bar

Janice and Lynn parted with us after our baking class so the 4 of us just walked over to Tanjong Pagar road to look for food .... a late dinner indeed for us.  The whole stretch of food mostly were korean BBQ and steamboat ....... we didn't to have it cos is buffet style .... so we give a miss and Angeline actually recommend to have dinner at The New Harbour Cafe & Bar. 

Pauline ordered Harbour Mixed Grills ($22.80), Angeline stick to her usual food that she love - Yaki Udon ($13.80), Sam had their Pork Mush Sausage (13.80) while I ordered the most faster food (I think! But is the last that served!) - Seafood Spaghetti ($16.80)  and not forgetting any side we ordered Chicken Wings ($12.80), Cumi Bakar (squid aka sotong - $16.80) and Hainan Roast Pork (highly recommended by Angeline - $12.80).  I dun take pork so I think should be good cos almost every table were having it! 

This place don't serve ice water and is bottle water if you wanna have it .... So Sam and I both ordered Ice Lemon Tea ($3.80) while Angeline and Pauline ordered IBC Root Beer ($4.80). 

My spaghetti quite decent ..... seafood was fresh enough..... tasted the mesh potato on Pauline's mixed grill and she commented the food quite.  Yaki Udon was nice too ... Sam pack one back for tomorrow lunch since she will be on leave.  

Lighting in this place was quite bad so my pic came out quite bright cos of the flash ...... service here still quite ok ... but furniture wise I guess they should have "QC" soon cos I was given one which is gonna give way soon!

Auntie Rosalind suggest to have pizza for lunch .... so she volunteer to go opposite to buy Domino Pizza and it cost only $5 for a personal pizza and a can of drink.  Rosalind add on about $2+ to get the onion rings to go along too. 

She ordered Hawaiian while I pick chicken temptation .... that we swop 2 pieces so that we can enjoy 2 flavour!  Not too bad having a pizza near us ... so that we can have a change .... and pricing are reasonable too!

After work Jo and I make our way to Fatty Weng to pack dinner back ...... love their horfun and bee hoon.  Before we board the bus we called them to order so we can pick up and go need not wait for them to cook. 

Price still the same at $5 and best is they still using Upeh to wrap the food ... the fragrance smell really makes me hungry but have to wait for Mr Goh to be back home then we can enjoy the food together!

Read up most of the review of dining it wasn't that good .... but packing back is fine especially when you call to order and pick up later.

Lucky when we reached there is only one customer .... so I have my fringe rebond first follow by the dye and highlight .... I opt for ash color cos can cover my grey hair if it grow again haha ...... and TT asked the hairdresser (Kiang)  to have her hair cut ..... Kiang asked me how short I throw the decision back to TT ...... she ask to cut just below the ear ...... 

Kiang was shocked and asked her if she will cry *LOL* TT was so firmed she say NO and continue watching cartoon on the ipad.  She even wave bye bye to her hair before they sweep away hahaha cuttie gal!

Is Jolene's birthday on coming Sunday so we have a mini celebration for her at work ..... Rosalind bought a black forest cake from 4 leaves for her ... to be frank I dun fancy blackforest so I only took a little bit of the cake minus off the whipped cream hahaha that's equivalent to like 3 mouth and I finish the cake!

After the mini celebration we went Penang Kitchen for lunch ..... Jo and I order each a Prawn Noodle set which comes with a Barley and Rosalind ordered their Penang Laksa.   Tasted the laksa .... not too bad for the first few mouth .... and but at the end it kinda salty.  The waitress was not really friendly today ... she didn't take down our add-on order and she try to argue back with us.  But when she serve big group her face change totally!  So I feel that she will only be happy when there's big group not 2-3 pax last time when we visited she was very friendly but not today!

Monday we went over to With a Pinch of Salt for lunch ..... usually they are closed on Monday .... when we stepped in we were greeted by the waiter (FT) then menu was given ...... service kinda slow .... and I guess they have a change of management.  Food with a little change, no more jar of ice water given, no wifi, no big bottle of chilli and tomato ketchup left only packets kind.  And each table is about 4 packets (2 each of chilli and tomato ketchup).  Food wise standard still there but service standard drop! 

On Tuesday I headed to Simei  myself to get some more pineapple paste and flour ...... told Dearie to go back straight as I will packed food back via MRT will be easier.  Packed duck rice for Dearie while I have fish soup.  Dearie love the duck rice at NTUC food fare ...... I dun really fancy duck so I didn't have that.  After dinner I continue to roll the pineapple so that it will be easy for me to wrapped when I finish my dough if I starting to do. 

On Wednesday I named it now as Alyssa Day cos it will be the day then I will be having dinner with her .... and is a midweek so she will miss us only 2 days before and 1 3/4 days after hahaha .......she also looking forward to our dinner time .... MIL say she will kept on asking why we are not there .... why take so long  etc

The City at Liang Court

The City located at Liang Court is an Interactive Learning Playground for children it is designed for 2 - 8 years old.  When we stepped in the small place have actually partition up to different room with different play area.  In the premises children can try out different adult roles in fun and safe environment and there is an area for the Parents to take a rest and for some bites.

TT first try out to be Princess so she change into Cinderella gown and walk around to be like a Princess ..... after that she became Chef .... so is Abrielle.  Beside that they have Cashier in the supermarket, Doctor and Nurses in the clinic, Policemen etc. They can even drive on mini streets with some traffic signs and lights!

Children can practice real-life skills from mathematics through budgeting with play money, they can also learn human body, safety hygiene etc I kinda like this concept cos I saw in Taiwan they have similar role playing place for kids and there is someone whom will lead the kids in different profession as for here at The City Parents have to be the one taking care but if your kids is old enough it should be fine leaving there playing with friends while the parents can just sit around and relax.
