2.1.14

Hello 2014!

2014 has arrived and may all of you have a blessed new year ! It was a quiet day for me on 1/1/2014 as I rested at home most of the time. Earlier, I wanted to attend my church's Watch Night service at 10.30pm till midnight on new year's eve but I was put off by the rainy night and heavy traffic.  I only went out in the late afternoon to run some errands and later, fetched my kid from school for dinner. Yes, it's business as usual in Johor on 1/1 and Johor kids were among the first to attend school. I had my new year dinner with family at my favourite restaurant, Pekin restaurant in Taman Sentosa.


I find that this restaurant has maintained its standard for decades where I first dined there in the mid-90s. It's still an attractive place for folks due to its delicious and affordable menu. We ordered some simple dishes as below.

Lotus with vegetables

Tofu cooked with mushrooms and squids

Foochow soup - love it with some vinegar. Taste like shark fins without the fins.

Pork ribs - very sweet and delicious!

BBQ chicken - my favourite. Dip it in some soft salt and it's damn good!

Brinjals in teriyaki sauce

Another vegetables cooked with belacan
After the dinner, I travelled back to SG in a quiet CIQ, where most folks have already been back due to school reopens tomorrow. 2013 has been great as I achieved many 'firsts' and I hope to continue it in a challenging 2014! Yes, it will be a challenging year for me!
