What I bought from iHerb

Since some people asked me what on earth I bought from iHerb when I told them I had three DHL shipments, I thought I'd just share it with everyone at one shot. (Yes, three!)

Homecooked dinner: Pork rib soup

Nutiva's Coconut Manna

While iHerb was having its rare sale, I decided to order a jar of Nutiva's Coconut Manna to try, since many people have been saying that it is a cheaper version of Artisana's Coconut Butter. Not having had proper smooth coconut butter for more than six months, I was waiting eagerly for my DHL package to arrive.

Nandos from City Square Mall, Johor Bahru

Even though we had da pau-ed (taken away) Kam Long's curry fishhead for dinner when we visited Johor Bahru, we could not resist getting some Nandos chicken as well. It stems from having lived in Australia for many years, and one year in particular living almost directly above a Nandos outlet. Further, how could we not get Nandos when it is much cheaper in Malaysia than Singapore!

n95 masks - availability

Picture from

Hoping all readers affected by the haze in SE Asia are well and have managed to get hold of an n95 mask. On Friday morning when PSI levels in Singapore reached 400, I stepped out of the office to buy masks for my family, but the Guardians at Raffles Place and Raffles City were out-of-stock of all types of masks. NTUC Unity at Thomson Plaza had some stocks today, but not enough for the people queueing up (including myself).

Ka-Soh Seafood Restaurant

Ka-Soh Seafood Restaurant is an old school zi char place that is famous for its milky fish soup and prawn paste chicken. Just like Tambuah Mas is the restaurant I had to visit before leaving Singapore for further studies and each time I returned, Ka-Soh is the same to my sister. When my sister was scheduled to arrive in Singapore at around 1am, mom even went to Ka-Soh in the evening to da pau (takeaway) food for her when she reached home!

Excalibur dehydrator

I have just updated my post on dehydrators in Singapore to include information on the Excalibur being sold at ToTT. Those are all of the brands and models of dehydrators in Singapore that I know of. Hope it helps!

Dehydrator update

In my comments to the Making apple chips with the Philips AirFryer post, I wrote that Tangs Orchard no longer stocks the Ezi Dry brand of dehydrators, but carries two other brands: Severin and Rommelsbacher.

Ribs from The Rotisserie

The Rotisserie is an Aussie cafe that serves up hearty Western food like roast chicken, fish and chips, pork knuckle and ribs, in a casual yet classy environment. I used to have to walk all the way to China Square for it, but after it opened another outlet at Chulia Street, I could get a working-late takeaway dinner more conveniently.
