When the only thing that is still open is McDonalds

Recently I have had a couple of really late nights at the office, working till as late as 3.30am. At Raffles Place, dining options lessen as time ticks. By 9pm, almost every cafe or restaurant in the area is closed, except perhaps some along Boat Quay. Well, I was feeling hungry at 1am, and the only place that was still serving food at that time was the 24-hour McDonalds at Boat Quay.

Tartes from Paul Bakery

This is going to be a brief review as I rarely eat tartes and am not an expert on them. We were given a box of pretty tartes from Paul Bakery. I could not resist, and had a little bite of each. I think their names are as follows:
- Top row from L-R: Strawberry Tarte, Mixed Fruit Tarte, Chocolate Tarte
- Middle row on the left: Lemon Cream Tarte with Meringue

Update: Original Luna Sandals

You may remember reading my post last October about the Original Luna Sandals that I bought from the US. Unfortunately I have been forced to throw them away. You can read more about it at the bottom of this post.

Nasi Padang River Valley

Even though Nasi Padang River Valley (NPRV) is a little tucked away along Zion Road so that passer-bys might not even know it serves nasi padang, many Singaporeans seem to know of it. I do not remember how we got to know of NPRV or when we first started having their nasi padang, but mom has been "da pao-ing" from NPRV occasionally for at least the past 10 years.

Killiney Curry Puff

If you walk down Killiney road, you can't miss Killiney Curry Puff (KCP) with its massive green signboard and various puffs displayed behind a clear glass screen (see this example). We have walked down Killiney road a few times but never bought their curry puff to try since our favourite was already Dino's and Balmoral Bakery. But one day the foodie in me just had to give KCP's curry puff a shot, to know for myself whether it was good or not. So I bought one for mom and one for myself.

Adams Natural Peanut Butter is back in stock!

Can you spot it?

It started with mom bringing home a jar of Crunchy early last week. Then a reader Galicia Karthesier left a comment saying that she spotted some jars at Clementi Mall's NTUC Finest (thanks for the tip-off Galicia!). And today, I spotted the varieties of Adams PB at Killiney Road's NTUC, their expiry date being September 2013.

Get them while you still can!

Edit / update (13 April 2013) : The crunchy version is available at Coronation Plaza's NTUC. Only the crunchy version was on the shelf though.
