RWS Malaysian Food Street @ Sentosa

Category : RWS

I’ve visited Resorts World Sentosa Singapore for no less than 10 times and I’ve never tried the food at RWS Malaysian Food Street because a colleague commented that the food there was really bad and not worth the trip. In fact I’ve always thought that it’s called RWS Malaysia Food Street and not Malaysian Food Street. Haha~

Anyway, being sick of eating only Toast Box with ridiculous prices and the forever crowded McDonald’s, we decided to check out RWS Malaysian Food Street with a fellow seminar course mate. The food is not cheap but between Toast Box and RWS Malaysian Food Street, the latter wins hands down. For the same price, I can have a more satisfying meal at RWS Malaysian Food Street *nods*

So I ended up having 3 separate meals at RWS Malaysian Food Street, trying food from 8 different stalls. It is perpetually crowded and luckily for us, there are always kind souls who vacate their seats after finishing their meal. Thanks for not hoarding! 🙂

On our first meal, we tried KL Wanton Mee ($4.50) & Penang Ah Mei Hokkien Prawn Noodle ($5.50).

I didn’t like the KL Wanton Mee. The wanton aka meat dumpling is not nice, the soup is bland and the noodle sauce is forgettable. The portion is also small and mostly importantly, there’s no chilli! The only plus point is its char siew. I won’t be eating this again.

My husband finds the Penang Ah Mei Hokkien Prawn Noodle is not too bad. His only feedback is that it’ll be better for him if the soup is non-spicy. I tried a bit of the soup. It’s decent and I like the hint of spiciness. Way better than my KL Wanton Mee. However, from a Prawn Noodles perspective, I prefer 肥仔排骨虾面 @ 118 Pasir Panjang Rd.

For dinner, we had Penang Lim Brothers’ Char Koay Teow (S$5.50) & KL Jalan Alor Hokkien Mee (S$6.50). Both are good *thumbs up*

Penang Lim Brothers’ Char Koay Teow is lightly seasoned and not too oily. It’s different from the usual black oily sweet Char Kway Teows found in hawker centres which I dislike. The Penang Lim Brothers’ Char Koay Teow is closer to dry seafood hor fun, just that they use Koay Teow instead of hor fun. Nice!

When I realized that the KL Jalan Alor Hokkien Mee is the black Hokkien Mee, I was thinking “Oh my goodness, why? If I’d known earlier, I won’t order this.” I’ve tried the black Hokkien Mee in KL itself before and I really disliked it. I dislike thick noodles like udon.

With zero expectations, I had my first mouthful and boy was I surprised! Despite the noodles being very thick, it wasn’t chewy like rubber. The texture was just nice and the seasoning was perfect. And, it’s not too oily too. Thumbs up!

For our final meal at RWS Malaysian Food Street, we had Klang Bak Kut Teh (S$6.50) & Fried Ying Yong (S$6.50).

The herbal taste was absent from the Klang Herbal Bak Kut Teh. There was only sweetness. Disappointed. Dislike.

The Fried Ying Yong isn’t an obvious dish as there wasn’t any photo and folks who patronize the stall usually just order the KL Jalan Alor Hokkien Mee. Yes, it’s at the same stall. The Fried Ying Yong is conjured from behind the wall/door aka you won’t be able to see who’s the chef or what the dish looks like before it’s placed on your tray. The good thing is, the queue is much shorter/faster than the KL Jalan Alor Hokkien Mee.

I LOVE the Fried Ying Yong. It’s called Ying Yong as it’s a combination of Seafood Hor Fun and Crispy Fried Bee Hoon (buried underneath the Seafood Hor Fun). I was absolutely blown away! I love the medley of textures between the silky Hor Fun & Crispy Fried Bee Hoon. Delicious! Highly recommended! My favourite item so far! 😀

I think I will have a tough choice between eating the Fried Ying Yong again versus trying out the other stalls at my next visit to Resorts World Sentosa Malaysian Food Street *dilemma*

Today Is Your Day by Shania Twain

Category : Personal Development

This is a very meaningful song I came across during one of the personal development seminars I attended.

Just thought of sharing. Pay attention to the lyrics.

Believe in yourself. You have what it takes. Now. Today 😉

You got what it takes you can win x 2
Today is your day to begin
Don’t give up here, don’t you quit
The moment is now, this is it

I know that you can then you will
Get to the top of the hill
Part of the fun is the climb
You just gotta make up your mind

That today is your day
And nothing can stand in your way
Today is your day
Everything’s going your way
Today x 4

When somebody throws sticks and stones
All they can break are your bones
And life’s gonna kick you around
Then kick you again when you’re down

But today is your day
And nothing can stand in your way
Today is your day
Everything’s going your way
Today x 4

Life’s gonna kick you
It’s gonna kick you around
It’s gonna kick you down

Brush yourself up no regrets
This is as good as it gets
Don’t expect more or no less
Just go out and give it your best

Today is your day
And nothing can stand in your way
Today is your day
Everything’s going your way
Today~ x 2

Today is your day

Today x 4

Today is your day





Korean Restaurant JOO MAK @ Beauty World

Category : Korean

Finally I’ve got the chance to snap photos of my favourite Korean Restaurant in Bukit Timah – Joo Mak at Beauty World. This Korean Restaurant was first introduced to me by a Korean Food Kaki and boy was I surprised to find this little jem tucked away in a corner of Beauty World’s Food Centre.

A lot has changed since my first visit to Joo Mak a couple years back. I still remember the warmth I felt when we were served complimentary kimbap made by the Korean server. The complimentary coffee dispensed by the machine which the owners provided a basket of 50cents for us to toss in, hence complementary. The Korean chef who came out to chit chat with us in perfect Mandarin. It was really homely back then.

Nonetheless, the food is still great and it’s a really nice place to hangout with friends to chit chat the night away. Especially since no one comes up to the food centre level of Beauty World at night since all the stalls outside are closed.

Back to Joo Mak’s food.

This time round, I got to eat every dish I like, except Ja Jang Myun as there were only 3 of us. So far all the friends I brought to Joo Mak love their food. And it’s my pleasure to share this with you.

First up is Joo Mak’s Budae Jjigae aka Military Soup aka Army Base Stew. This is a must have at Joo Mak and the best version I’ve had so far amongst the various Korean Restaurants in Singapore. It’s hard to resist requesting for more soup & noodles. *slurp*

This is definitely spicy. As we finished the soup, we could see a substantial amount of small chilli swimming at the bottom.

The other must have item at Joo Mak is its Yangnyeom Tongdak aka Crispy Fried Chicken. It is super crispy, absolutely delicious with a hint of spices and slightly spicy. Just slightly. The best fried chicken I’ve ever had!

My advice is to have it as soon as it’s served so that you can savour the fried chicken at its best. As with all things fried, it’s not as nice when it’s cold.

A basket of half fried chicken has 4 pieces as seen below. Just thinking about it makes me salivates~

The third must have item at Joo Mak is its Hae Mul Pa Jeon aka Korean Seafood Pancake. It’s stuffed with lots of ingredients, held together with minimum flour dough. Mmmmmm~

These are my top 3 must have items at Joo Mak. If you have space for more, you can add on Joo Mak’s Gun Man Du aka Fried Dumpling or Ja Jang Myun aka Black Bean Sauce Noodles.

Looking forward to my next visit to Joo Mak!
