The Last Day; Pungol Plaza
This trip I was pretty lax about my commitment to taking pictures of my food. While food blogging is a fun activity, I try to make sure it does not supersede other activities, and because of that we find ourselves at my last day in Singapore. At the conclusion of what may be my eigth or ninth time visiting, I feel more reluctant to return home.
My lunch at the food center (or “centre”, Singapore does real English) of a local mall did not alleviate any reluctance to leave. Looking for a more stable option, because my stomach had taken a turn for the worst on this last day, I decided to go for a hot-pot (sort of, see here for further info) vendor. What was cool though, was that it was take-out! Typically, I have only seen hot-pot in a sit-down restaurant style, and the vendor style perked my interest.
I was not disappointed, and had a wide variety of ingredients in my bowl. You get to choose whatever you would like, and they cook it right in front of you with the hot broth. The yam and kang kong were especially good.
My mom, in addition to her own bowl, got a bright pink drink called Bandung. It has a cool, clear flavor (if there is such a thing), and is made from a combination of water, juice and milk.
For dessert we shared Pulut Hitman (which I blogged earlier, here) . By this time, I was already sufficiently full so the warm and creamy mix of coconut milk and the gulutinious rice put me over into a full fledged food coma. I proceeded to take a glorious and very fulfilling nap. What a way to end my brief stay in Singapore, with great food and relaxation.
