BaliThai at ION Orchard

Last week, we went to Singapore (again), but this time we took the MRT and a cab back to Malaysia. The short half day trip was tiring (again, I don’t know why it’s always tiring to go Singapore). Anyway, when we arrived in ION Orchard, it was lunch time so we hunted for food first before we dwell into the shop lots. As always, mesti nak yang halal, so we found this place.Di sahkan halal by the Islamic religious Council of SingaporeFood was alright, macam kat Basil Thai in Bangsar Village dan restaurant2 yang sewaktu dengannya.Fried minced chicken with basil – my favouritePandan chicken- yum yumNoodle my mom- she finished it nom nom nomOverall, the place was quite cramp (I think it’s designed to accommodate as many people as possible).

Please, don’t ever charter a …

Melaka Stories Part I

Then, we had our lunch at the Queyside Cafe and Seafood Restaurant nearby Bandar Hilir…the service was not very good coz probably dah petang…they were getting ready for the night rush….whatever it was, we managed to get our food…semua habis coz we were extremely hungry.Checking out our hotel viewKincir Air Kesultanan Melaka, nearby the QueysideFirst we went to the Stadhuys Building (remember the red building?)….Jalan-jalan over there admiring the local souvenirs and beca (trishaws).Beca berhiasView from our trishawJust a few minutes walk from the Stadhuys, you will reach the most famous night market in Melaka, the Jonker Street.
