Proper Food

Chris just came back from USA and the first thing he said was...

chris: i need to eat some proper food -.-

haha... that bad? so what best way to start the day then with Ya Kun kaya toast and soft-boiled eggs with horlicks! ^^

over the toast...

chris: wa! the food in america is really horrible!
me: really? then how come they are the fattest nation???
chris: the food is v unhealthy and v big portion... i need some proper food like chicken rice...
me: that's not healthy...
chris: and some proper ramen... wa biang the ramen there is =P like rubber band in salt water...
me: that bad ah? no wonder matt likes singapore food...

so we headed to Boon Tong Kee in River Valley.

we didn't enjoy the meal at all because they have become very ATAS (high class). you don't go to a high class place to eat chicken rice (which is why we don't like chatterbox too)... the rice is pyramidal in shape -.- and they wrap the fork and spoon nice nice (ok, it's not v nice but can see they really put in effort), the plate is square, the bowl is square -.- the coke comes in a nice glass -.- ok i liked that the tea came in a nice cup and teapot though. we prefer to lap up our chicken rice in a ROUND bowl with chopsticks, where they plong the tub of chilli sauce and ginger on the table and you scoop it out yourself...

they even gave out ferrero rocher as dessert... ???? so salah... chris didn't even want to take it

chris: i don't eat ferrero rocher from ATAS chinese restaurants -.-

sheesh... not as nice as before and so expensive. we ordered TWO drumsticks, one kailan, two (square) bowls of plain porridge, one coke, one tea and it cost us $30 -.-

wait, it should be $80... cos chris tio $50 saman for parking illegally... diao.
