Eleven Two & Co. (Phuket Old Town)

image

We spent a day roaming around the streets of Phuket Old Town, Phuket, Thailand and checked on every single Tripadvisor‘s suggestions and top 10 restaurants we could find close to where we are currently staying. And so we stumbled upon Eleven Two & Co.

This photo above is their Spicy Thai Pork Quesadilla and we asked for it to be less spicy.

One slice and it burned our mouth! It was like I was eating flames! We finished it though because it was really very good, tasty and delicious but I thought they couldn’t really make it “less spicy”, I was thinking it was marinated to be really spicy and they can’t do anything to make it less hot. When the staff came and cleared our plate, we told her about the food experience and she confirmed the kitchen people have made it “less spicy”. I was in total shock at how could it have been if the food was served the way it is!

Anyway, this is one fun food experience and I would gladly share it to you. Spicy food lovers, you must go for this! 😊

A Dad or a Father?

You would probably agree that dad and father means exactly the same. A Dad is a Father and a Father is a Dad. Simple. Right? …. Or maybe not. Because for me, yes, technically and literally speaking, they are the same thing but taking a look at a deeper level, they are totally different. For me.

If you have watched the movie Daddy’s Home, you would better understand what I’m saying here. It is a story about a man who married (yeah, I think they got married…or not) a woman with two kids and was trying his best to get the children to love him as their own daddy. Then suddenly, the biological father came home and tried to win his family back. The competition on proving who should rightfully be called as the “head of the family” between the two men grew.. And I don’t want to tell you how it ended, you better watch it if you haven’t yet.

Where am I going? The difference is this: A DAD, for me, is the person who stood by you, who provided all your needs and who claimed all the responsibility of protecting you, guiding you, and raising you as his child, whether you are related by blood or not.

While a FATHER, is nothing but the reason for your existence (in short, the sperm donor).

It is Father’s Day soon enough. And I salute all fathers who have been real dads to their kids.

I don’t have a dad. I had a father. But that doesn’t mean he was never a dad to me. He was. He just lost his way. And that prevented him from becoming a dad to me in the present. But then again, I was daddy’s girl for as long as I can remember. And no matter how I deny, he is still my father, the reason for my existence. I owe him my life.

And in defense of those fathers who have lost their ways (whether they wanted to or they had no choice), I tell you people that no matter how bad your father has become, no matter how from a “dad” he got demoted to just a “father”, no matter how he has never been a dad to you since the beginning, he is still your blood. And forever he will be. And forever you owe him your life. Be grateful to him, no matter how pained and angry you are, even just for a day, be thankful for a father who has given you life in this beautiful world.

Happy Father’s Day to all Dads and Fathers out there! I wish you all good health and longer lives… and clearer minds… and more loving hearts. 😊

The Singapura Club

image

Meet The Singapura Club, located at 26 Haji Lane, Bugis, Singapore.

I am not really a bar hopper but I am a lover of cocktails and alcoholic beverages. Below is their version of Blue Margarita, which tastes really alcoholic,and Kopi Peng, coffee with a touch of vodka (my weakness), and is a thumbs up for me, mixed by my friend Kelvin, who happened to be the bar manager (which is why I am promoting Singapura Club, haha! 😂 ).

image

This beautiful pinkish red drink below is the Singapore Sling, the most common to any bar you go. Sweet, alcoholic, and perfect.

Next cocktail was created by another friend, the bar Mixologist Zoul, called the Orchid Sling, (obviously because of the orchid as its garnish), alcohol and barley together in one drink. This is his very own creation and I should say this is one good cocktail. I don’t like the bits of barley, though. This drink is a backstabber. Sweet, innocent looking but certainly strong. The flower attracts women. A cocktail you shouldn’t dare miss.

image

And as hungry as always, we had Singapore’s version of BBQ, called Satay, which can either be chicken or beef, with peanut sauce, onions (if you don’t mind eating fresh ones), and cucumber. This is delicious! And we also tried their Fried Chicken (I think it was curried first) with herbs and chili seeds around it combined with pickled carrots to enhance the taste and make you ask for more!

image

Try it out. Honestly, I don’t recommend you go for the food because you can find them anywhere in Singapore but the cocktails, oh! Only my friends can give you the best ones at affordable prices! 😁👍
Edit: My friends are not working there now. They are now working somewhere else. Should’ve edited this a long time ago but… I thought it didn’t matter. Well, now, I think I should tell you anyway. (Feb 8, 2017)

Smoked Salmon Crêpe

Timezone games beat the hell out of me and sucked all my energy after throwing balls at evil clowns, grabbing stuffed toys (in which I was never able to win one), hammering to the point of concentrating all my chakra (from my arms flowing to the hammer), and stomping on the exhausting dance machine. Again… my tummy grumbled.

So Kenny and I went to Marché, took our cards, found our seats, drank some fruit juices (watermelon for me and orange for him), and roamed around to look for some mouth-watering edibles. We stopped at this crêpe stall and we found ourselves ordering this food below:

Smoked Salmon Crêpe!! It looks delicious right? IT REALLY IS DELICIOUS by the way. It doesn’t even taste like salmon and the sauce complements it. This was a totally big, big serving that this plate got us both full and satisfied. Oh, and I love those crunchy cherry tomatoes on the side. They are perfect! 👍👌

Boiling Hot

Singapore is just too warm to handle during sunny days. An ice cold coffee or any drink for that matter wouldn’t ease the sweat and relieve your burning skin. A shower isn’t enough because the moment you get dressed, you get your bits of sweat back. And there’s aircon! Hah! You can’t stay in your room forever (plus the bill, don’t forget)!

So we chose to go out and enjoy the day in the cool climate of shopping centres. But then… it suddenly rained. And it is still warm, though. But the temperature in the mall was decreasing. Then I hugged myself even though I have my cardigan on. And here came hunger. Cold plus grumbling tummy equals noodle soup.

Tadah! We ate a bowl of Hot Pot Noodle. Fire under freshly combined ingredients in a bowl (eggs, mustard greens, pork and liver, fish cake) and a separate bowl of noodle and fried dumpling. Absolutely delicious and cheap and worth it! So Shiok! 😂
