Shan Dong Da Bao

This is usually located near bus interchanges and mrt stations.

The buns and pancakes make a substantial meal in itself. With desserts prepacked, ready to go.

I like that it is deep fried, everything tastes better deep fried.

Underwater World Sentosa

Underwater World Sentosa closes on 27 June and prices have been slashed to $9 for all those wanting to catch a last minute glimpse of this place. Just look at the Q to get in, and this is 1pm on a weekday afternoon. Juice bar next to the ticketing counter.

I took the MRT to Vivocity, went up to the 3rd floor to board the Sentosa Express ($4 and you can pay with your EZlink card). Stop at Beach Central and take Bus 1 to Underwater World.

Sentosa is all about My Little Pony this summer.

When you enter Underwater World, the first few stations are all interactive with marine life. You can pet them, feed them, take pictures with them.

This is also where you drop off the young kids at the activity centre with coin machines dispensing candy and toys. They usually go crazy trying to catch the live fishes.

1 level below are aquarium exhibits of rare and exotic marine creatures.

And they are all still alive.

The place was really crowded, however taking great pics are still possible.

1 more level down is the underwater tank with conveyor belt to bring everyone through.

Photo opportunities are endless.

On my way out, more giant crabs 'n' fishies to take pics with.

Finally, you have to go through the gift shop to exit. Lots of good deals since its closing down.

I got a pink dolphin soft toy and pink sea glass magnets.

On my way out I got a drink from Chill Out.

Press A Penny next to the Chill Out cashier.

Some locals made an appearance.

Snack at Hotdog King before heading home.

Chao Shan Cuisine

Saturday Family Dinner @ Chao Shan Cuisine. I have never been here before and its really popular with full occupancy before it even got dark outside.

It's located @ Philip Street opposite the Chinese Temple and serves delicious Teochew food. Maybe that's why, my family hardly eats Teochew food.

Cold crabs are served as a starter, as opposed to the end of the meal at a Singaporean Seafood Place. There are several dipping sauces, I like it as is, really sweet and filled with roe.

Pork Jelly and Prawn Balls appetizers. The pork jelly is served cold and quite salty, you have to eat it with the coriander stems.

Steamed egg white prawns, incredibly close to seafood congee.

Braised tofu, my fave.

Chicken stuffed with chestnuts, chestnuts were really yummy.

Fried Noodles, kinda nice that some parts are crispy.

Packing Onigiri

This is not the traditional onigiri but a simplified version that has more meat & flavor for my family.

You can use any canned meat, here I have Anchovy in Chili Sauce, Mince Pork & Mushroom in Bean Paste, Curry Tuna.

Using these rice ball wrappers from Daiso, the last time I bought the animal cartoon versions and now its all about Disney and Sakuras.

Mix 1 can of tuna/meat/anchovy with 3 portions of cooked rice.
