The mimosa brings back fond memories of my childhood.

I was a little girl, growing up on Katong. Daddy's girl.

Dad and mom would bring me to Katong Park, sit on a swing, chill out as we enjoy the sweet outdoors.

I remember, was it my dad or my fourth uncle who showed me the thorny weed that was so lively. Touch it and its leaves were closed, hence its name, touch-me-not.

I'd squeal in delight whenever I encountered that touchy plant and run to touch its leaves with my tiny fingers, laughing as I watched the shy leaves close.

Drunken duck noodles

Drunken duck? I imagine a drunk duck who was given too much to drink so it fell into the pot to make this

Had that at tanjong pagar hawker center. By the way , it was delicious
Om nom nom...

Prata. Crispy, a touch of salty, yummier than bread and goes perfectly with curry.

 A good prata, freshly made, eaten with curry and a cup of teh.. as in the coffee shop style tea with milk.. is a favourite breakfast in this part of the world. It's a classic. From my grandpa's time til today.

A good prata with a cup of teh tarik reminds me of innocent days gone by. I'm glad with all the changes in Singapore, the precious parts of culture we've lost, prata still remains.

 Ok, so this was shot in Cameron Highlands featuring a sporting chef who agreed to the shoot. Enjoy!
