Went for lunch and shopping during June school holiday with my children. When without DH along we will opt for western meal as he is a more traditional man who only goes for Chinese meal. Decided to eat at The Bistro in Borders as it was years since we last dined there. The bookstore was crowded as usual and was lucky able to secure a place without booking.
Our favorite - cream of mushroom soup. Chock full of mushroom and awesome with a dash of pepper

I really have no idea what's wrong with the blogging system. It has not allowed uploading of photos. The settings of the blog has all being changed with a small preview square to type and the image icons disappeared into who knows where. With a twist of luck barely managed to upload.
First time cooking saba fish bought from NTUC. The fishes are season with ginger soya sauce and lots of minced garlic for a while and put to grill.

After a heavy Japanese meal we shopped around before proceeding to tea later in the day. We eased ourselves at TCC Raffles City and continued with our gossiping.

The noodles were springy with good bite accompanied by thick slices of pork and half egg with half-boiled creamy yolk.
Happy sinful ending :

Time flies and looks like we had just celebrated Father's Day which was 1 year ago. This year Father's Day is a joyous occasion as my eldest girl had graduated and is guaranteed a job even at this downturn economy. She has started working since April and offered to sponsor dinner.
Crystal Jade Restaurant offered different set menus which we settled for a set for 5 persons. The service was attentive even though the place was crowded.
Big mushrooms fried with springy fish bladder and vegetables. The mushrooms were big with good bite.
Large prawns fried in salted egg yolk. The flavor of the yolk was very distinct and was the best dish of the night.
