First up, face off between the 2 fish soups - the first of which is Piao Ji Fish Porridge
The fish was very very smooth - its much smoother than Piao Ji's, but the soup was too peppery it masks the fish soup flavour. For 4 bucks there was as much fish as Piao Ji's (which was $7) so this is definitely better value for money.
We tried the sliced beef noodles from Hong Kee Beef noodles next.
The Gingko nuts are caramelised and sweet and firm to bite, and there was a generous amount of beancurd. I love this dessert and everytime I have this my friends (like Michelle)always say that this dessert is actually quite easy to make at home. My grandma used to cook this too because the old folks believe it is good for the complextion. Gingko is also supposed to be good for the brain, and my mom used to make me take those gingko extracts. A mystery how the humble gingko nut can target so many organs.
It was too bad Sg Kueh was closed - we wanted to try the Durian ondeh ondeh and orh-ni there. Bake_of and Missy Muffins were also closed so I couldnt continue my Great Muffin hunt (SLII muffins started this hunt). So we were off to catch Twilight at Cathay.
Then we exited Suntec through a secret side entrance (which Kelly never knew about) to Nicoll Highway - when it suddenly drizzled! The weather was really whacky. (Does this mean that the rescue over at the Singapore Flyer was done in the rain too?!) We were super scared that Tom's Palette (Shaw Leisure Gallery)will be closed so we scurried off fast fast.
The milkier flavours included Horlicks - which is a good version of the malted drink, Oreo cheesecake - good too but a milder cheese flavour in comparison to the salty caramel cousin. The other alcoholic icecream, Rum and raisin was also delicious - but its just that I've had too many alcoholic icecreams over the weekend - Seventh Heaven and the Bailey's milkshake at Prive.
We left Tom's Palette truly satisfied and enlightened, with a new acquaintance as well =)
I couldnt wait to get home because there was the White Chocolate Strawberry Cheesecake from AllanBakes in the fridge! My mom collected the cake, intending it for Xmas but of cos it'd be polished up before that. This cheesecake is very creamy - from the white chocolate- and has bits of strawberries studded throughout the cake. It feels like a really dense and creamy cheesecake icecream. The base is a really soft digestive biscuit layer - I prefer this cos i find the harder biscuit layers really hard to cut through. This is officially my favourite cheesecake this year!
2 consecutive days of eating sprees ought to make me guilty enough to start studying, already.. Merry Christmas all =)
