My experience at Malaysia Local Delights - Lok Lok (Tanjong Katong)

Are you getting sick and tired of having steamboat or mookata all the time with your friends? My clique and I decided to go for a change by trying out Lok Lok buffet located at Tanjong Katong. Hmmm? Surprising to you right? Cos only Malaysia sells Lok Lok (I know Taiwan and Japan got sell but theres a different name for it!). FYI, if you are wondering what is Lok lok, it is actually a very over-whemlimg local street food delight in Malaysia. If you travel to JB often for supper, then Lok lok should be no stranger to you. 

This place is so accessable as there are so many buses to get to this location. Such as Bus 31 (From Tamp), 43, 76, 135, 197, 10 and many more buses! 

The name of the shop is called Malaysia Local Delights Restaurant. Besides the Lok lok buffet they have, they also serve normal zi char dishes such as the popular KL Hokkien Mee (my favourite!!), Malaysia Otah (super generous serving) and many more! Well, I think most of the customers come here for the Lok Lok buffet. Hence, one negative point at this restaurant is you will only experience the steamboat style of cooking your own lok lok but not the BBQ grilled ones! However, plus points for being one of the first restaurants to bring in Lok Lok to Singapore! Now I do not have to travel to JB to eat! 

*Checks off my list, a new place for supper*


There's a durian stall near-by so if you still feel hungry after supper/dinner, you can go enjoy the king of fruits! Yums!! 


Ambience is just right, cleanliness is about 3.5/5. Thoughtful of having fans surrounded around the area so you won't feel humid at all. *Thumbs Up* 


Like what I said, you can come here for supper too! They close at 2.30am!! Now if you have any midnight cravings, this is gonna be the right place for you!

Menu offers more than 5 choices of soup base. (Warning for Mala because it's really very spicy!) However, if you like to eat spicy stuff, then you will like it very much! I selected the chicken soup and Mala! You will be allowed to pick up to 2 soup base! They are refillable. The total cost of per person for this buffet was $26.50 (includes free flow of drinks and desserts.) At first I thought it was costly, but after finishing the meal I thought the price was reasonable and I would definitely come back again. With the amount of Lok Lok you can eat, it will be value for money.


 Quite a decent amount of fried food to choose. I recommend the fishcake & fried you tiao!


For raw food, there are a vary of choices. I recommend the prawns (they actually have two types of prawns, one is they already peeled for you and another not, so it really depends on you if you are concerned with hygiene, if you are a lazy person like me then just go with the one that is peeled for you already.) I also like the quail eggs (don't eat too much high cholesterol la), marinated chicken, meatballs, button mushrooms, japanese mushrooms. Overall, there are quite an amount of choices for you to pick but I strongly urge you to take minimal portions for each first before you take more. Some of the items you might not like after a first few bites, like the sausage that I ate. It's not that bad but it didn't suit my likings. This way you won't waste food too!


Prawns - 4/5



Pork Belly - 3.5/5, Mushrooms 4.5/5


What's Cooking?!! See what I meant about the Mala soup being so SPICY!!


I was addicted the prawns! I guess it's my favourite! *Yums*


Chicken - 4/5


Beef - 2.5/5


Hahahah! Are you eyes burning?!?! I felt that way too!


They have noodles, tang hoon, seafood and many more choices!

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. 

Entrance of Gills N Shells 

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.

Recently, I was greeted with an orh nee cake right at my door step thanks to Buttertrade

My internship in Japan (Niigata)

If you haven't read my previous blogposts about my overseas industrial attachment at Japan you can click on the links below: http://www.uncletehpeng.com/2014/09/exploring-niigata-japan-kite-museum.html http://www.uncletehpeng.com/2014/08/my-trip-to-japan-niigata-day-1.html''

Working in Japan is one of my greatest experience so far! The people there are so nice to communicate too and they are not only patient but very kind too. Despite the communication barrier, we were still able to translate our body language to talk to each other. The only funny thing is when we have to use Google Translate to talk to each other. Above is a picture of a huge tentage that my colleague and I built. Do note that everything including the tent sheets are made from scratch! 

I was attached to a logistics company during my internship period! The company has many years of experience in the industry thus I learnt plenty of things about administration & practical work. Japanese are very passion…
