WIAW: Mix and match

WIAW: Mix and match

Peas and Crayons

Good day everyone! Its my second round joining in the WIAW party, with the brilliant Jenn who’s hosting as always. I think WIAW is a brilliant way for bloggers to learn more about each other, even if its just by seeing what one another eats in a day. Kudos to Jenn for dreaming up such a fun event on the blogosphere.

2 Weetbix topped with a cold banana, and soya milk. So simple and so delicious. I have a big appetite though, so I had two Jollipancakes to follow (below)

A Jollipancake is a thin pancake which is spread with peanut jam (crushed peanuts mixed to form a thick paste), and rolled up. The crunch of the crushed peanuts and sugar takes pancakes to a whole new level. I still prefer their normal traditional pancakes though, as you can see.Β But if you like western pancakes, then this would be a better bet.

photo 3 (58)I had hawker food for lunch today! I went to ABC Brickworks Market and Food Centre, which has loads of good food. Lunch for me was Handmade Fishball noodles which were spectacular. The soup was tasty, and the fishballs were springy and stuffed with ingredients, unlike their processed counterparts.

If you have absolutely no idea what I am talking about, should you ever come to Singapore, do get your hands on some fishballs. Fishballs are made of fish meat, which is ground up into a paste, so it does not have a texture like meat at all. Sometimes, spices like chopped red chillies and green onions are added for a flavor boost. My favorite kind is the FuZhou Fishball, where the fIshball is stuffed with minced meat. When you bite into it, the juices from the meat just ooze into your mouth, and its like a party for your taste buds. They may sound and look strange, but they are fun to eat (be careful not to stuff the entire ball into your mouth though, or the Heimlich maneuver may come in handy). While fishballs are considered simple fare, they are still a novelty since you probably will not be able to find them outside Asia.

Woah. that was an unexpected paragraph on fishballs. Haha, well moving on, here’s what I had for dessert!
photo 5 (36)I got these bowls of deliciousness from a stall called “Creo Desserts“. With stalls like Blackball, and Beanstalk taking Singapore by storm, I have to say, this is my kryptonite. Affordable, and in my opinion, better than Blackball and Beanstalk (*gasp*), these are just plain delightful. Crushed ice drenched in syrup, and topped with grass jelly, red beans, and taro balls (or taro for my foodie-in-crime)… the ideal dessert for a hot day in sunny Singapore.

Here’s a close up! Isn’t it pretty? πŸ™‚

For my fellow health nuts, this should ring a bell. Sumo salad for dinner anyone? Here are the few variations I’ve had lately. I love how generous they are with the portions, literally stuffing the box with the salads of your choice.

Kumara/Sweet potato Couscous, Jamaican Chicken and Pumpkin with chickpeas. Eating the rainbow indeed! This was my favorite combination.

hicken Avocado Salad, Chickpeas, Couscous with Sausage, White bean and Kumara. I got greedy and mixed 4 types of salad together. Don’t follow my lead.. sometimes, less is more.

And, if you have leftovers, what better way than to add more veggies, and serve it up again the next day? The perfect way to get more greens into your diet. I’d say this WIAW has more greens than my previous WIAW πŸ˜€ Achievement unlocked!

Well, all good things come to an end, and this concludes my WIAW #2, I certainly hope you had fun reading πŸ˜€ or at least looking at the photos.

Have a brilliant day, may God bless you always.
