We love pizzas and often frequent one of the popular pizza delis in town whenever we need a good fix. We enjoy the regular margherita or pepperoni and cheese of course, but one of our favorite pizzas to order is the Peking Duck. We thought it to be really interesting, as I really love the Hoisin sauce as the base, a good variation from the usual pomodoro based sauces, and it is somewhat sweet and savory as well, not forgetting the umami flavours within. But now with the new Samsung Smart Oven, making pizzas at home has become a breeze.

古早味的芋粿 Orh Kueh

记得小时候,爸妈不时会带我们到牛车水和附近的珍珠坊去逛逛。在那个还没有太多百货商场的年代,牛车水和珍珠坊应该是许多人的周末去处。而让我印象最深刻的应该是牛车水湿巴刹二楼的小贩中心。琳琅满目的摊位网罗了各式各样好吃的,让人看得目不暇给.  每次都得花好长一段时间来决定谁最“幸运”,能成为我当天的晚餐。回想起来,最幸运的应该是我吧。哈!

如果真的要找出我最喜欢吃的,应该是一摊广东人经营的猪肠粉和芋头糕了。猪肠粉和芋头糕是两样陪我走过无数岁月的传统小吃,真可以说是从小就吃到大。无论是当作早餐还是午后稍稍用来治嘴馋的点心, 都那么适合。虽然把它们当作晚餐的确是有点“怪怪”的。但因为我们喜欢,所以爸妈还是常买来当作晚餐的“配菜”, 要不就打包回家当作宵夜或隔日的早餐。对我而言, 来牛车水而没吃到猪肠粉和芋头糕的话,就等于没来牛车水了。 真所谓入宝山而空手归啊。
