Dinner with Cousins

Met up wtih 3 cousins on Wednesday evening for dinner. Zhenyin is a very busy cousin, always do OT for no money (like YH) so she was late for the appointment. Chuyun was very free, on the other hand, as she pontang school that day but she was late also because she couldn't find the NTUC at AMK hub. Another younger cousin who is Chuyun's sister, Xiao Jing, was with her too.

Initially my aunt suggest that we eat steamboat at AMK central above 'This Fashion' but Chuyun said that the food there is not fresh so we discussed and discussed to conclude that we should go A-star kopitiam eat fish head steamboat. So we happily go to A-star kopitiam first cuz Zhenyin is still on her way here.

My aunt said that we need to go chop place there but very funny lor, the kopitiam was very empty, no need to chop at all. We happily found a table and arranged the chairs, sit down and started chit chatting. Suddenly, my aunt noticed that the fish head steamboat stall didn't have a sign board so she went forward to take a closer look. She came back to tell us the bad news that the fish head steamboat has shut down already.

Haiz, to think we still sit there happily arranging the chairs lor. In the end my aunt decided to go back to her flat and drive out their car so that we can go to another part of AMK to eat. Her home is like 10 minutes walk from the kopitiam. So she went off first while the rest of us waited for Zhen yin to come.

Took this picture of A-star kopitiam from opposite the road while waiting for the car. Not bad sia, I took it with my hp and still can see the kopitiam in the night.

So we went to Blk 409 instead to eat fish head steamboat. The fish head steamboat at Blk 409 also shut down already but fortunately, the new shop that took over also sell fish head steamboat.

Super hungry already.

Chuyun and Zhenyin. Xiao jing was still in her school uniform and she didn't want to take photos. The steamboat and zi cha there was not bad leh. Quite nice. The salted egg prawns also quite nice.

Chuyun told me that she likes to eat DA BAI CAI also. Hahaha.. Finally got someone also like da bai cai lor. May always ridiculed me for eating da bai cai, said that I am weird. It's not weird lor. Chuyun even likes to eat parsley, the most hatedveggie in the world.

Xiaojing is more weird, she didn't want to drink soup at all. She will eat the stuff in the steamboat but not drink the soup.

When we were eating crab, Zhen yin showed us how she remove the shell of the crab from its skinny legs.

Normally people will just suck out or pull out the flesh but she chose to remove the shell slowly. Look at that! 2 parts of the leg has already got the shell removed. Amazing right?

Chuyun said that it was very disgusting but zhenyin continued to remove the crab shell.

Voila!! The whole shell of the crab leg was removed! It's the first time I see the crab leg's shell removed so perfectly and the joints were perfectly intact. Imagine a whole crab leg without shell. Chuyun yelped,"That is the most disgusting thing I ever see in my life!"

Zhen yin said," Like that then taste nice mah."

She proceeded to put the whole crab leg onto the spoon, dip it in chili sauce and ate it in one mouthful. Chuyun was like,"eeeeee...."

Hahaha, it was an eventful dinner lor.

During the dinner we made some travel plans. They told me that they saw my blog on Northern Lights and saw that I want to go Greenland. They are also interested in the trip and told me that they gonna save money for it. Seems like my northern lights blog has sparked up some interest in quite a few people. Lock also told me that he wants to join me in the trip.

My cousins are dog lovers so I think another purpose of going greenland is to see those huskies and take a ride at the dog sled.

I thought that no one will be interested to got to such an ulu place as Greenland can be considered as the north-est place you can go. It is extremely cold and food is weird.

They asked me if it is guaranteed that they will be able to see Northern Lights. Nature phenomenon got no guarantee one lor but I think if we go to the right place at the right time, chances are high. I also hope to see northern lights mah. It's like one of my wishes lor.

Xiaojing was asking what is northern lights. Think she never see my post about it. It's here:

Just in case anyone of you interested to see the post again. There is a video there, you must see the video as northern lights can move, like dancing around.

Anyone else want to go Greenland?
