One month before Vesak Day DH had been a vegetarian. The dishes that were consumed were quick and easier to prepare, moreover it is more healthy.

The girls have been urging me to make apple pie for quite sometime but due to my laziness I have ignored their request. While shopping at Carrefour saw apple pies on sale but cost $7 for one, which is quite expensive. Instead of buying one went to the fruits section and pick up some green apples to make pie.
Make the dough and leave it in the fridge for 20 mins (The pastry recipe was from Dorie Greenspan cookbook "Baking From My Home To Yours"). Cut up 3 apples to stew with brown sugar and cinnamon till soft. Cut another 2 more apples into thin slices and sprinkle with lemon juice and set aside. Roll out dough and put into the pie pan. Prick the bottom of the pie with fork. Line parchment paper on top of pie and scatter beans over. Bake in the oven till pie is half baked.

It was fate that brought us together as colleagues and friends. For your further career advancement that we had to say goodbye. No matter how much fun and frustrations we endured during your 4 years with us our friendship will never cease. Hope you enjoyed the ala carte dinner buffet spread we had specially selected for you at Noble House.
Full of flavour
Appetizing side dish
Not spicy only tomato sauce flavour. Not worth ordering, crabs small size
Too messy, to order lettuce instead
No flavour, bland. Disappointed

1st batch : Combine 100gm butter with 120gm dark brown Muscova sugar, 120gm plain flour and 1teaspoon ground cinnamon. Mix together till mixture resembles wet sand and pad into baking tin to bake blindly.
Make 2nd batch of the above. Throw in blueberries and raspberries into baked tart shell and put 2 tablespoon of castor sugar over fruits. Sprinkle 2nd batch of mixture all over fruits till fully covered. Bake again till toppings are crispy and lightly brown. Cool and refrigerate for 3 hrs for easy cutting.

As usual went for dim sum lunch during Labour Day, which happened to fall on a Saturday. We went for dim sum at Vivo City Crystal Jade. We had to make a reservation first to avoid the hassle of having to queue for a table, especially during public holiday.
This branch is smaller as compared to the one in Takashimaya but the ambience is more casual.

Having spent half an afternoon on cake-baking class at Shermay's Cooking School dinner was out at Suntec City. After a brief hiatus from the place in months there were numerous new restaurants mushrooming in the vicinity. With much selections we settled for Chinese cuisine in a brand new (to us) soup restaurant.
"Soup King" greetings at the entrance
Spectacular roof display of Chinese lanterns which gives the place a warm and soothing feel
A must choice - Soup (Pear with Chinese herbs)
The soup tasted great with lots of ingredients. The fragrance and sweetness indicate long hours of boiling
Deep fried soft-shell crabs, crispy and tender with a hint of spiciness
Drunken chicken in thin slices, but juicy and tender with wine aroma
Dry wanton noodles in spicy chilly sauce. Prawn dumplings were big and substantial in number. Noodles were soft and not springy
DH favourite - crispy skin and tender meat
Almond milk pudding - Bland
For the eyes only
