Lilypie 3rd Birthday Ticker

Mas Indi and I, along with Dimas, Adi, Jay broke the fast in Geylang Night Market at S-11 Food Court. I had Nasi Goreng Ikan Asin with Baby Sotong Asam Manis. Later we regretted having dinner, because we found a wide variety of foodstalls along the way to Joo Chiat.

We closed our trip with a big scoop of Turkish Ice Cream, vanilla and chocolate flavour, made from goat milk and all natural ingredients. The ice cream has a very unique sticky texture and does not have aftertaste like other ice creams with preservatives.

I was so happy to find Fresh Melinjo in Geylang Serai Night Market, now that I will be able to cook real Sayur Asam with Melinjo. I was surprised that they also sell Fresh Jengkol, but I wouldnt buy it! I don't want my husband to avoid me if I have bad "Jengkol" breath. Mas Indi is not a kind of guy who likes smelly food. He does not even like durian! That is why I haven't eaten Durian ever since I got married :>

On our way home in MRT, we met Andi and Fahmi, our two architect friends.

Yesterday Mas Indi and I had dinner with Leonard and Melissa in our favorite restaurant: Lotus Thai. We had a great discussion about things, from volunteerism to Melissa's initiative in countering child trafficking and to work on Palestinian-Israeli peace workshop simulation. It intrigued us to start to get ourselves involved in NGO activities in Singapore. I have never known any NGO in Singapore that deals with developing countries, which is one of my main interest, until now I know what UNIFEM does.

Leonard parked his car right in front of the Himalayan restaurant. On our way home, the chef of Himalaya persuaded us to visit his restaurant. I asked him if he cooks things with saffron, and I particularly was interested in Saffron Ice Cream. He then offered me to make a special Saffron Ice Cream if I come and eat at his restaurant. He gave me his phone number so that I could call him before coming to his restaurant and he would make sure that my order would be ready. How sweet! The menu looked good too. We plan to try Himalaya North Indian and Nepali restaurant next time!
