On Saturday I met Bee Hoon again. We met at Orchard road, had a quick brunch – a so so version of Nasi Lemak – and enjoyed then the Botanic Gardens, especially I liked the National Orchid Gardens and the Rain Forest area. It was unbelievably hot and humid, Bee Hoon took care of me and brought a hat. After walking around for hours (and giving each plant a photo shooting) we went by bus near to burgis street and walked along the shopping malls. Bee Hoon started to feed me, got me
- a Durian – a local fruit with a strong smell and a unique taste. the texture is a bit like avocado, it is similar creamy but flavor and taste are completely different. Never had something close to this before.
- a Pulasan – a fruit which reminded me a bit to lychee
- Laksa – a tasty soup with noodles, coconut, cockles, fish, prawns – tasty
- a sourish, salty milk drink. The name I forgot, Jimmy didn’t know either.
- Mua chi – basically made of glutinous rice flour dough covered with peanuts and sugar, i only knew the Japanese version so far.
- something the name i forgot – tasty but very filling. It is also made with glutinous rice but with chili, mushrooms and chicken. Apparently I just asked Bee Hoon what the old woman was selling, and she meant I need to try it because I am going to leave soon. To be honest, I didn’t even recognize that woman was selling food.
- Japanese ice cream made of macha tea, mochi, water chestnuts and red beans. Sweet, cold and way to much.
It started raining heavily and I was just tired. So we skipped the night safari and I went straight back to bed. It was a great day. Thanks, Bee Hoon!
