Had one week off for Idul Fitri, and went home to explore my hometown!
Best thing about going back to Batam is the convenience to go to Singapore! This time I am in Singapore with my mom and brother to visit the temple in Bugis. Went for a bit of a food adventure too!
We took the first ferry and we didn't have the time to have some breakfast before departing to Singapore, and we ended up having breakfast in the ferry terminal. We had some coffee with kaya toast in Heavenly Wang in HarbourFront.
Once in Bugis, we had some chee cheong fun (猪肠粉) in Block 269B foodcourt, just beside a porridge stall named Ri Ji Porridge. The auntie selling the chee cheong fun is friendly and nice, and do ask for their extra xia mi sauce (虾米酱)! The chee cheong fun is chewy! I really enjoyed this one.
We had lunch in People's Park Complex' food court, and this place is super crowded during lunch hour! We had to delay our lunch just to be able to find a place to settle down and order food. I had my favourite kway chap! I always have this everytime. It is pork offals in rich soy broth, accompanied with square-sized rice noodles.
kaya toast (kaya jam and butter) with 2 half boiled eggs and coffee milk tea (yuenyeung) is a bomb way to start the day. this from the Ah Seng (Hai Nam) Coffee in Amoy Street Food Centre
Singapore Fling. We used to frequent this small kaya place by the exit of the Chinatown MTR, but it closed down a year ago. I still crave for it and none of the other Kaya places satisfied that craving for me. Til this.Home-made Kaya by @andresgonerogue . Naawa na yata sa akin ❤️❤️❤️ #kaya#singapore#singaporeeats#kayatoast
This weekend's activities: Mamma Mia 2 (LOVED IT, it was amazing) and wandering around Keong Saik Road, trying kaya toast sets at Tong Ah Eating House and browsing small book shops! I don't even know if visiting these places make me a tourist in my own home or more Singaporean, but it doesn't matter. 🤣 My point is, I'm happy to be back in Singapore and making much more of an effort to explore my sunny home. 🌞
