It’s not too difficult to find the place if one drive. For it is just opposite Jurong Bird Park, located in The Village. It was initially given the impression that it’s full house during reservation, however it’s not that crowded after all. The restaurant decoration is simple, it does not have the cosy or impressive ambiance though.

Somehow, we find the space is quite cramp for group of 5 or 6. The table size, the gap between table and seating area.

The central food area is not appealing nor the presentation appetizing but generally the taste is range from acceptable to good. We did not take much of the sushi as it was not in cold area nor on ice but display and place in normal room temperature  though it is in air-con environment.

Sushi, Seasoned Baby Octopus, ..

Appetizer: Bean Sprout,Cabbage Salad, Cucumber

Fried Squid Ball,Fried Rice,Pan Fried Pock

Sakana Katsu, Tori Karaage

The BBQ  is good.  The rest acceptable. The drinks is very plain seems very diluted. The ice cream is good but not much choice of favor and seems to have limited stock. It’s our first visit there.

BBQ Pork belly, Pork collar, Pork sausage, Chicken sausage

Beef Striploin

Pork and Chicken Meat

Smoke Free BBQ

Korean Kim Chi Soup

Japanese miso soup


Advise for those who plan to go there it’s better you place order for those you love to eat first.  And tell them the sequence of bring out the order. With the above listed range of menu you will sure fill very full even to eat a small portion of each individual.  So for best value, guess it’s better you decide the sequence of the dishes to be presented to you rather than leave it to the discretion of others.

Indeed, there is no smell of bbq when you walk out of the restaurant..

Hawker Centre Blk 93, Lorong 4 Toa Payoh

Hawker Centre in Blk 93, Lorong 4 Toa Payoh, S(310093)
Tried the Food for the below listed stalls on 11Jun2011, Sat

Wang Ji Hainanese Chicken Rice,stall # 01- 53
Ordered for the Chicken and Duck rice.
The Chicken rice is good.
The chicken is fresh, fragrance, tender, smooth and the rice
is tasty.
The Duck rice failed though as it's just tasteless and the
meat is kind of soggy.
We Will come back for Chicken Rice for this stall.

Kuey Chap,5pm to 12.30am
It was really long queue waited for almost 40mins!
However, I find that it doesn't worth the wait..ordered for
White Fish Cake, Tau Pop, Tau Kua, Pig Stomach, Pig Big
Intestine, Braised Pork Meat.
It failed all of us just that the Kuay Chap is soft and
tanggi but not fanstatic either.
or may be we just don't like the taste.

The noodle stall opposite Kuey Chap stall,just between the
Hong Kong Zhi Char and Malay food stall.
From here, we ordered Fried Prawn Noodle, it turn out
over-fried which overwhelmed with black carbon taste 'chao da'. 

Wu Xiang #01-202,11.30am to 8pm. Close Tues
Taste good! Left with not much variety though as we are the
last few customer before he close the stalls
PS: Didn't bring camera along, mobile happened to be low battery->no pictures

Burning Brightly ~ Allowing Your Soul to Shine

When we hide and try to be invisible and unseen by all we are only really hiding from ourselves.

At times, we’ve all wanted to crawl under a rock and hide away from the world. We may have preferred to be invisible rather than let other people see us or notice that we exist. This desire not to be seen often happens when we are feeling very hurt, angry, or simply weary of the world. And while we may console ourselves with the defense that we are shy, an introvert, or a loner, we may actually be hiding.

When we hide and make believe that we are invisible, we can think that we no one sees us even though, truthfully, we are only really hiding from ourselves. And while we may try to live life as inconspicuously as possible, we only succeed in becoming more conspicuous because people can’t help but notice that we are trying to hide our light. None of us are meant to hide; each one of us radiates a unique brilliance that is meant to illuminate the world. When we try to dim our light, we diminish the natural radiance of the Universe, and we deprive the people around us of the unique gifts and talents that we are here to share.

Stepping out of the wings and letting your light shine is actually a way to serve the planet. We each have a responsibility to contribute to our community, and we do this when we let ourselves be seen. It doesn’t do anyone any good when we try to hide. We are all beings of light and we are here to light the way for each other. When we let ourselves shine, we become a bright mirror that others can see their own reflected brilliance through, and they can’t help but want to shine also. Shine your light out into the world, bless those around you by sharing your gifts, and watch the universe glow.
