Taste Paradise

On a beautiful Saturday morning, Yvonne, Rayne and myself woke up especially early and headed to Taste Paradise, located at Ion Ochard level 4.

yes, just the 3 of us! and it's pefect to go in group of 3 because most of the dim sum are serve in 3 pieces.

Here's Rayne taking orders for us!

very atas cutlery

unique teapot, nice to pour with it.

$11.40 Chrysanthemum tea!

Best Egg Tart i've ever had

Cha Siew Sau 

Mango Prawn

Cha Siew Chee Cheong Fun

Juicy Custard Bun

Xiao Long Bao

Please don't order this: Scallop with egg white..(can't rmb the exact name)

Cha Sau Bao

Cod Fish Ball

Har Kau and some Pumpkin pastry  

Siew Mai

Ee Fu Mian with shredded duck -$18
one plate served for 4, so if you do the calculation, it's actually $4.50 for that one small pathetic bowl.

lastly, of course it's dessert
Mango Pudding-$5

the SHOCKING bill!

satisfied faces from that freaking exp but nice meal

Now time for reviews:

Must try: Egg tart and Custard bun :)
Egg tart is definitely times better than what TungLok have. Custard bun is very soft and it's juicy inside!
Don't try: Scallop with egg white thingy, Chee Cheong Fun :(
The Scallop with egg white totally can't taste scallop. It is just basically egg white with some smooth translucent skin. Chee Cheong Fun skin a little thick, the sauce and chee cheong fun doesn't mixed tgt.

Har Kau, Siew Mai, Cha Sau Pau, Xiao Long Pau is like typically the kind of food everyone will order when having Dim Sum. All these are quite alright, very safe choice of food! :)

Price: Definitely more exp than normal Dim Sum. Nth cheap can be found at ION pls... but definitely worth it to give it a try. And i'll go again to have my favorites and keeping my budget not above $30!

This round cost us each $39! Super ex! And please take note, their tea is not free flow i think. On the receipt it stated 3 quantity but i'm not sure it is referring to 3 people or we actually refilled 3times? But anyway the tea itself is already very exp!

That's all for my Taste Paradise reviews, now it's your turn to go try out!

Tmr gonna be the first day at work. It's also my first full-time/office job working alone. Previously had chris at DP, vonne & singyee at Ready Mortgage, now is really me alone.
I'm kinda excited to know more abt what am I really suppose to do there, but definitely I'm more worried than excited. Perhaps is b'cos I haven't been to the office before at all. All I had was a phone interview! Tmr gotta meet all those new faces plus I'm not those super social kind of person also. But comes to think of it, when I first entered poly, I was alone as well but I still managed to make friends there! First friend, Karen! Whahahah!
Okay, whatever it is still worried that I'll have communication problems over there. I hope I can understand what they are saying!
No more late nights for me. This is definitely saddening for me. For abt the past 2 months, I've been slacking at hm, sleeping time is definitely not earlier than 4am! Now I've to sleep ard 12.30am?! And out of a sudden, there are so much things I wanna do! Pack my room and finish all the shows I've on hand! But show seems so never ending for me.
But anyway, I think I've enough of Taiwan dramas....10yrs of Taiwan dramas that I've been chasing after. Since abt Primary 4/5, my first drama- Meteor Garden! Even till now I'm still loving that drama. But now is the Korean drama trend! I'm in love with Korean dramas! Maybe one day I shall put tgt all the Taiwan dramas I've watched before and post it here! Whahahaha! I used to type out all the Taiwan dramas I've watched but of course I alrd lost this note long ago...
Okay, I gotta go now. Gonna watch ZhongWuYan, bathe and slp!
*prays*Everything will be good tmr! :)

forever alone in the late night

It's 4.22am right now and I'm not on bed or in my lala land yet.
I just realised it has been quite some time since I last updated. The previous time like a week ago?!
Anyway, this 2weeks have been quite relax for me as I'm still lazing around, find jobs, send resumes, met agents, went for countless interviews...but it's really boring to travel around to meet all these people and do this and that yet there's no job for me. Everytime I went for a job interview, hoping that they would say that they will employ me on the spot, but however all this while it has been disappointments.
I hate giving myself hopes because I always see disappointments, but definitely life wouldn't be so unfair right?!
Tday I've got a job at Symantec after spending like almost 1mth plus going 2mths jobless. However, I seriously don't know how long can I survive there. I'm so afraid that I can't communicate with those angmos. Hahahha! But anyway on a happier note, I seriously don't know how the hell did I get in for this job or even why they chose me because I seriously just bullshit through that phone interview with that angmo. There are a lot of details that I'm still not sure about the job yet, have to find out a lot more from my agent on Monday.

And I just realised, I actually wanted to upload BKK pictures but........ok, i haven't gotten the pictures! I'm gonna get from Chris tmr!!! Upload soon and also going for Fennie's bday celebration later on! It's gonna be another fun day at MindsCafe and excited to have dinner tgt at Sushi Tei. Okay, I know i sound 'suaku' never go Sushi Tei before! Hahahaha!
That's all for the night, gonna have my beauty sleep!

Lastly, I've added a little stuff to 'about' tab. I want to add more but let me think what should I add. And I change my blog song again! Nice nice nice!

I need to do my best!

I'm gonna for an interview in like 8hrs time. It might be the last round of interview for this week and also the last interview I've on hand! This is like the job that I'm wishing for. Time, pay, jobscope, location I'm all fine with it. Thou the location still a little bit far but still alright. I don't wanna choose anymore. I seriously hope that I can do my best for the interview and starting working soon! And, please stop asking me to wait for their response whether I'm in for the job! I've stop sending resumes! If tmr still fail then I've got to start sending out more resumes agn!!! Please let me pass the interview this time round!
Jiayou and best of luck to myself!

With a Pinch of Salt (WAPOS)

A special blog post just for With A Pinch Of Salt
It's a really cute dining place with very good service, serving cheap and nice food! :)
Check it out what they have, or what I had there... I went there twice already, and there will definitely be a third, fourth & fifth time....

Cute Menu booklet

Cute environment with many photo frames

Just by looking at the crowd, you should know how good the food is!

First trip down with Rayne, Chris & Fennie

Our side dish- Cheesy Fries, mad shiok!

Soup of the Day- Cream of Potato, really smooth and creamy!

Below are what we had, can't really rmb the exact names of the food.
Chicken Leg for Rayne

Corden Bleu- chicken stuffed with ham and cheese, this is for me
There is fried fish stuffed with ham and cheese too, that is for Fennie.

Snapper Pesto- Fish with some herb sauce

Cream Caramel

Creme Brulee

Last but not least, Choco Lava

All of us find it really nice and worth it and we will definitely go again.
Soooo, this second time we asked along Fify and Yvonne!
What did we had this time? I definitely try something different!

Chicken Leg for Yvonne, this time round the portion is slightly bigger!

Pork Cutlet with some sweet&sour sauce for Chris

Creamy is definitely me! Grilled Salmon with Cream Sauce, Yummylicious! :)

Sirloin Steak for Rayne, as always-steak, steak and steak.

Grilled Salmon with Teriyaki Sauce for Fennie

Banana Split for Chris, because she always don't like super sweet food!

And.....CHOCO LAVA for the rest of us!!! This is like a 'must have' dessert!!!

Enough of pictures, so my comment and recommendations?
Corden Bleu (chicken/fish):
 The chicken is too hard, I think the meat is like breast meat so not that great. But the Corden Bleu for fish one quite alright.
Snapper Pesto:
The herb sauce doesn't taste nice at all! Quite yucky! :(
Chicken Leg:
Chicken is tender, creamy sauce taste yummy! Apart of the chicken, it comes with potato which taste not bad as well! :) 
Grilled Salmon with Cream Sauce:
Super nice cream sauce. It's not just plainly sauce but it comes with mixed pea, corn and carrot. Salmon is also quite soft, not those very hard kind.
Grilled Salmon with Teriyaki Sauce:
Teriyaki Sauce is also nice but is more to the Japanese taste rather than Western. However, the sauce is a little bit little, so probably can request for more sauce.
Pork Chop with Sweet&Sour Sauce:
More Asian chinese food taste. I don't really like pork because pork is always the hardest. Good thing is it comes with fries! I would say it's a very average dish. 
Sirloin Steak:
No comments. I love beef, as in sliced beef but not steak! I don't like the QQ feeling but when it's well done, I will find it too hard! whahaha! That's why I never eat steak.
Definitely nice. We tried Cream of Potato and Cream of Cabbage. Both taste great! :)
Chessy Fries:
It will be a good side dish to share with friends. Crispy fries with cheese! It's only $6.90 for quite a big plate!!! Worth it! :)
Cream Caramel & Creme Brulee:
It's definitely not up to standard, but I wouldn't complain too much cos it's cheaper and it's not famous for that in WAPOS. 
Choco Lava:
Must try!!! Really! I would say it's heavenly nice! I don't find it too sweet for me! With the crispy baked brownie skin topped with the cooling vanilla ice cream....OMG!!! It's really different from those brownie with ice cream. It's that crispy skin that makes it different! And it's only $4.90!!!

It's not just about the food that is good, the service is also very very good!
We were asking if they served Cream of Potato on our second trip there, but for that day, the soup was Cream of Cabbage. We were thinking if we shld order soup and one waitress just gave us half a bowl of soup for us to try!!! Good right?! Which place would do that? 
Not just this...
Fennie's grilled salmon with teriyaki sauce was served last. And because she waited for quite some time, while waiting, the waitress served her a complimentary soup!!! Good right?! Really thumbs up for their service! :)

I swear i'm gonna have a Choco Lava everytime I go to WAPOS! 
I'm gonna try their pasta and also try ordering other side dishes the next time I'm there.
When will my next trip to WAPOS?
