We were here for a late lunch, and the queue at Honolulu Cafe was too long. So, we headed to the empty Mak’s Noodles instead.
Ordered a Wanton Noodle Soup ($6.90++), and Beef Brisket and Tendon ($16.90++). For this price, we were quite shocked by the tiny size of the noodles, and even more shocked by the texture of the noodles, which was not at all springy. Well, but different people have preference for different texture.
The wantons were alright, but also reminded us of the shrimp dumplings that we used to buy at NTUC. We very much preferred the very flavourful beef brisket and tendon.
When we went to the counter for payment, the staff just responded with the total cost without even bothering to print the receipt, gosh!
Not exactly a satisfying lunch, so we decided to return to queue at Honolulu Cafe and hoped for the best… Somehow, this reminded us of our Hong Kong trip…

So in a (very) short span of 2 days, we managed to book ourselves on budget flights out of Singapore to various locations for the second half of 2015!
First up, we were Scooting to Hong Kong at 1:55am in June 2015, thanks to the rather good offer of $125/pax for a return trip:)
Being a work day, we were still doing last minute packing on the actual day and ended up at Changi Airport Terminal 2 for a late dinner. We ended up at Crystal Jade as I wanted some hot porridge to sooth my rather empty stomach, but unfortunately, the fish belly porridge at this outlet was not really fantastic.
We had plenty of time before boarding, and ended up at the entertainment zone, strolling in the sunflower garden, and catching a penguin movie. There were also plenty of sofa seats for us to lounge and charge our phones 🙂 Gotta say that Changi Airport is really quite a pleasant place to be at!

Running out of options at nex and this newly-opened HK café caught our eyes, so we decided to give it a try. The interior is a very typical Hong Kong café but the ordering was not as efficient as you could get in Hong Kong. When we waved at a waitress, she came over reluctantly to collect our order sheet. Then she strolled over to the cashier counter and just passed the sheet to the cashier, who was busy chatting/gossiping with her colleague. She gave us an impression that this was not her job and that the cashier should have come over. Later when the cashier punched in our orders and gave us the summary, I found that one of the items was missing. So I had to walk over the cashier counter to repeat my orders, and she was still chatting/gossiping with her colleagues. Why can’t life be simpler? Continue reading
