Food Trip in Singapore

In this blog entry, I will share food that I had during my Singapore Vacation.

Tak Po

This is where we had lunch on our first day. We had Har Gao, Prawn & Mushroom Dumpling, Chicken Rice, and Crispy Yam Dumpling. It was overall a good experience. Great food and at a reasonable price.

Lau Pa Sat

Before heading to the Merlion Park, we decided to grab some snacks here. It's a Hawker style place where the best laksa in town can be found. We had some amazing egg tart from the store in the middle (too bad I didn't get the name) and some fresh pineapple juice (just ice and freshly squeezed pineapple). It's not the best combination but the egg tart is spot on.

Maxwell Food Center

I had three meals in this hawker place: Japanese (some gyoza and onion pancakes), Thai (Pad Thai), and Chinese/Singaporean (Hainanese Chicken). I was able to try the Hainanese Chicken from Tian Tian Hainanese Chicken and I must say it was delicious! Juicy, soft, and spot on! Don't miss trying the Hianese.

Tekka Centre

I love Indian food! That's why we had our lunch in Tekka Centre. It's a hawker style place with lots of Indian food choices. I couldn't even decide what I want at the beginning but end up with the most amazing Naan Bread I have tasted with matching Chicken Curry. It was spot on. Jomar ordered a random drink called Chendol which is really good.

People's Park Food Centre

We had some lemon chicken (which is pretty lame), laksa, and grilled chicken. The Singaporean Laksa was spicy by default (since I love spicy, I fell in love with it instantly!) Also, visit Bee Kim Heng because they sell the most delicious jerky ever.

When I stopped following job search advice, I found work!

Immigrating to a new country is never easy. The culture shock, temperature changes, and being unemployed are just some of the many things one would experience when moving to a new country.

In my case, I immigrated to Canada from Philippines. Not much culture shock since Philippines was heavily influenced by the Americans but the temperature change from hot to cold was something my body still needs adjusting to. The most difficult challenge of all (at least for me) was being unemployed.


I was happy with my career at Philippines. I work with amazing people (hello QSR team!) and I love what I do - training and helping schools use Google Apps in the classroom, is a rewarding thing to do. I am not talking about the monetary reward but more on the fulfillment of working with teachers and their professional growth.


When I arrive in Canada, I was obviously unemployed. It was tough. I was so confident that I'll be able to find work right away but I didn't. I am lucky, though, that my p…

Review of Joy Bus: The Deluxe Coach of Genesis Transport, Inc.

During my trip to Baguio last March 2, 2013, Jomar and I (as recommended by friends) decided to try the Joy Bus of Genesis. We went to the bus terminal the day before just to make sure we have a ticket going to Baguio and asked for the cell phone number of the person to contact in Baguio so we could reserve our returning ticket. Reservation Number in Baguio 0906-591-6011. She doesn't reply though.
