My experience at Rochor Thai (Joo Chiat)

Awhile ago, I was invited for a food tasting session at Rochor Thai! I'm really into Thai food these days and it's really trendy recently because almost all of us are trying out different cultures of food! It's amazing that I've found Rochor Thai that served really nice and authehtic thai cuisine. Once again, Rochor Thai is located at the streets of Joo Chait/Katong/Siglap. Wah, seriously Katong area has got to be one of the few places which has all the heavenly good makan places! Eventually, I was enthused and can't wait to try their Tom Yam Soup! (Been craving for it after so long hahaha)

Here's a plus point, they don't charge gst, service charge & most importantly they deliver msg-free dishes which is much more healthier for us! :D

Kanom Jeen Sao Nam 

To start the ball rolling, the first dish was an appitizer called Kanom Jeen Sao Nam which is also famously known as cold noodles consisting of mixed sauces which brings out different elements of flavours such as sweetness, spiciness, sourness & saltiness. Btw the noodles was "chu mi fen" also known as vermicelli (the one you have for fish soup all the time).To me, it's not bad for a starter dish and definitely able to satisfy your cravings. Overall, it was great and I love the combination of the difference sauces which brings out a gradient texture and it feels so refreshing cos I've never tried a dish that brings out multiple flavours!

 Pad Thai (Talay)

I used to thought Pad Thai was spelt as "Phat Thai" hahahaha! Anyways back to the topic, every Thai Restaurant I visit, I will always order their Pat Thai regardless on what you order cos I don't treat this dish as a main dish! It's more like a side dish to me. The serving of this dish can be shared among 2-3 people. (Maybe you could order and share with your friends). Among all the pad thais i've tried at many other places, this is one of the best (not being biased lol) but I love the texture of the noodles because it's not very dry (compared to other places) Although I'm not really sure if it's meant to be dry but this dish suits my likings. The texture of the dish was just right filled with rich ingredients and served with generous amount of ingredients and major plus points for the dressing of the dish! Looks appetizing eh?!

Pad Kee Mao Goong (Stir-fried Thai Drunken Style Prawns)

This has got to be one of my favourite dishes compared to the other dishes! Each prawn is marinated with their thai chili sauce and basil sauce enhancing the dish to the next level! Even for a non-spicy eater like me can get hooked onto this dish! (Despite being lazy to peel prawns!) Really like this dish a lot and I will recommend my friends to order this! The level of spiciness was around 7.5/10? The sweetness of the dish sure made me addicted to eating it non-stop!! Hahaha! Yums! Though they said it was drunken style prawns it sure didn't made me drunk :P

Po Taek (Clear Spicy Sour Soup aka Clear Tom Yam Soup)

Tom Yum Talay (Hot and Spicy seafood with Thai Herbs)

There were two types of Tom Yam soup served and this was the clear one, the restaurant manager warned me that I shouldn't judge the clear one to easily before I try the red one. It was indeed true that the clear one was spicier than the red soup base. *perspiring while eating eat* The soup broth of the soup was cooked with oly basil and kaffir lime leaves. Definitely had an unbelievable taste of spiciness! It was around a 8.5/10 for me! The large portion can be served among 5-6 people and the soup is filled with generous amount of prawns, mushroom and vegetables.

Salt Baked Whole Tilapia 

If you like salted fish, this has got to be in your order list! Though it was my least favourite, I really like how it's perfectly fried with the crispy texture! The meat was soft and tender and tasted slightly salty to me. Though it has a uplifting taste towards you, I recommend you to eat it together with rice! 

Kor Moo Yang (Seared Pork Collar served with Aromatic Dried Chilli)

Next up we have the pork collar! Hehe! This has got to be one of my favourites too because it's non-spicy! I really like how the meat is cooked into very soft and tender and goes well with the chili sauce given. Each bite would actually make you want to go for another thus, it's definitely a perfect side to add to your mains! The amount they given was a decent and I would order this upon my next visit here!

Gaeng Phet Pla Krapong Daeng (Dry Red Curry with Red Snapper Fillets)

With the combination of sweetness and spiciness the dish has raised the standards and made a good impression! I love the texture of the dish because it's so tender and juicy. The colour just want to make you drool on your computer right (don't bluff hahaha). The taste of the dish sure left a deeper impression towards me. It was just simply deletable and satisfying thus you need to order this too because the taste was just long-lasting! *Thumbs Up*

Red Ruby Dessert

Incase if you never heard of red ruby, those red colour cubes are actually chestnut! Served with coconut milk! (Making it slightly pinkish) Mhmm! One of my favourite Thai desserts and glad Rochor Thai serves them here! Just didn't like the fact that all the red ruby were stuck together and I had to separate them one by one! Overall, I think that this desssert can be improved!

Mango Sticky Rice

How nice of the head chef that saved the last and sweetest mango for us! I personally have tired many mango sticky rices at many places and most places their rice are always served cold. But at Rochor Thai, their rice are served warm and also topped with their sesame seeds. Something usual is they did not top the dish with coconut sauce! (Still prefer though) but it was so mouth-watering and I don't mind going for a second serving (not concerned about calories lol).

My experience at Gills N Shells (Lavender)

I was invited for a food tasting session at Gills N Shells not long ago to try out their new dishes. Gills N Shells is a restaurant/drinking place that is inspired by the ocean. The restaurant specialises in seafood, thus they offer a vary of seafood dishes. They are dedicated to serve quality food with the best quality. Gills N Shells is easily accessible as they are located just behind Hotel Boss facing the river. The nearest train station is at Lavender MRT Station, thus it will only take a 5 minutes walk to get to this restaurant.

Gills N Shells recently launched their seafood platter served in a dim sum basket. As mentioned, there is a variety of seafood choices you can select from. However, there is a minimum order of three seafood choices. If you are an adventurous person or you can eat a lot, you may wish to order the All-in-A Basket Special. It comes along with all the seafood listed in the menu.

Taipei Day 1: Ximending 西门町


Hi guys! Okay, as you can see from the title above, I'm going to blog about my Taiwan trip I went 2 weeks ago. It was a last minute getaway trip because I was only told a week before the trip, I totally freaked out because you know my wish is to visit Taiwan and finally it has been fulfilled. So in your mind you must be wondering, 1 week only, how are you going to find a hotel and book your air tickets in time?

Thanks to http// I was able to find my accommodation plus in a good area some more! Wanted to stay at Ximending but most of the hotels there were fully booked and the only available ones at Ximending were far from the MRT station. Thanks to expedia, I was able to source out  another hotel, which is a train stop before Ximending, Taipei Main Station. In Taipei traveling is so convenient because almost every place is accessible by the MRT.
After making all the accommodation arrangements, the n…

My weight loss journey: How I lost 30kg in 1.5 years

If you followed me on my Instagram account, you may have noticed that my face has became a lot more smaller. Losing weight has always been in my new year's resolution for every year. However, that resolution would never seemed to be able to be achieved. Thus, I will bring forward to the next year instead! Haha, bet many of you guys would do that too, you are not alone! As you guys know, I am always associated with food. I admit that I am a glutton myself, I can't resist nice food and I tend to overeat most of the time. 
Before you continue reading, the purpose of me writing this post is to serve as a reminder for myself not to return to my original weight. Simultaneously, a few of my friends have also approached me to share with them some tips for losing weight. I promise to keep this post short and sweet as I also dislike reading lengthy posts! 
Before I begin, this blogpost will be filled with old photos of myself before my weight loss transformation.
