    Octa Hotel @ Parco Bugis Millenia Walk

    Coffee for Tai Tais???
    From lunch to High Tea Set.....
    Octa Hotel is a concept of an imaginary hotel in Paris.....a Japanese interpretation of a French cafe
    On the left is Quiche with Bread & right is Egg Bacon Sandwich

    Simple elegance, tasteful interior design, antique furnitures.

    Gift items, accessories and fashion apparels are available here....

    Octa Hotel is comparable to The Royal Copenhagen in Takashimaya.......I love the Tea Set @$11.90++ which includes coffee/tea and assorted mini sandwiches, no scones are served.  Japanese cakes, sweets and some light food are also served here.  The service is excellent - a very typical Japanese hospitality!!!

    Onn Cake House.......Special Thanks to William & Family, Shan

    Being a typical Teochew, I love eating these local "pia" (biscuits)
    Freshly baked Rice Cookies, Old Wives Biscuit, Winter Melon Biscuits & many more.....
    Before I headed back to Singapore, I reminded William that I would like to buy some Teochew pia home.....William brought us to Onn Cakehouse and I was delighted to see all my favourite local biscuits here....

    I enjoy this pia for tea......these pia will literally melts in your mouth.........toast them in the toaster for 10 mins and a cup of Chinese tea to go along with it!

    This page is specially dedicated to William, Shan and his family.........Thanks for the warm hospitality and showing us Fascinating Kuching.....I will never forget the wonderful places like:  Sarawak Cultural Village, Semenggoh Wildlife Centre, Satok Market, The Waterfront, Chinese History Museum, Food Bazaar, The Beautiful Kalimantan Borders.

    LOK LOK......Kuching

    It was my first time trying Lok Lok.....what is Lok Lok?
    You can only find Lok Lok in Malaysia....it's a van surrounded with food skewered on sticks, pots of boiling water and served with many varieties of sauces.....Surprisingly, we had dinner Lok Lok in a restaurant in Kuching......to me Lok Lok is like eating Yong Tauhu in skewers without the soup.....

    Breakfast in Kim Joo, Carpenter Street

    Located at Carpenter Street opposite the Huang Thian Siang Temple, this is the great place to have breakfast or lunch when walking along the main bazzar area.
    Mixed Soup
    Dried bee hoon
    Breakfast for the day.....

    You'll never find such generous ingredients here in Singapore.  Everything tasted so good here...I love the soup (home made fish balls - No DoDo here, liver, pork, prawns, bean sprouts, meat balls)....the soup brings me back memories of Singapore in the 70's....everything tasted sedap!
