FISH LOR MEE, $4AH MA LOR MEE, 328 CLEMENTI AVENUE 2 (TEL: 8288-0810) Three generations have been serving this dish. The bowls of slippery egg noodles come with flaky, tender fish meat, crispy fried meatball, braised egg and pork belly doused in piping hot gravy. 3. KWAY CHAP, FROM $4JOO SIAH BAK KOOT TEH, 349 JURONG EAST AVENUE 1, 01-1215 While Joo Siah is popular for its peppery bak kut teh, its kway chap is gaining fans.

SALTED EGG LOTUS ROOT, FROM $10.80UNCLE LEONG SIGNATURES, B1-21 WATERWAY POINT(TEL: 6385-9989) 안전놀이터 This is slightly above our $10 limit but it is worth a mention as it is a popular dish.

    Stories of the Botanical Gardens, or BG as we called it,  brought to mind the times my friends and I used to spend in the Botanical Gardens, and after rummaging through old pictures I came across one particular photograph which featured the second Tembusu tree. It was taken in August 1941, when “life was a breeze”  just before the outbreak of World War II. The camera used was a Brownie and was developed at home. I was only 18 then. 온라인카지노 During the August school holidays my friends and I would take a morning walk from Hooper Road to the BG and spent carefree moments with Mother Nature.  We would wake up at 5am, prepare a few sandwiches (prawn sambal or corned beef wrapped by French bread), and with bottles of water and thermos flask’s of tea or coffee make our way to the BG. Plastic was unheard of then and we used  small enamel cups to quench our thirst.  The BG in those days was a fairyland for us with its resplendent greenery. We played games on the open spaces of grass, sat on the lake after a game of hide and seek. There were two swans there. Photographs were taken and this particular snapshot was on the limb of the Tembusu tree which is located  at the corner of Palms Valley. Unfortunately the branch has been cut off but the tree still stands there tall and majestic. It must be over 100 years old. 온라인바카라 Sadly all my friends have passed on, so this particular photograph brings back memories of the  good old days when the outdoors was a source of so much fun and activity – no computer, no distracting HP – only the radio and records of lovely music to listen to – not to mention a few good books. How nostalgic.

    Some say that the rich or richly paid are not likely to be corrupt. Not really. Many drug lords and politicians who have fingers in their national coffers are, as the Chinese saying goes, "snakes that are so avaricious that they even attempt to swallow an elephant". 바카라사이트         The intrinsic value of a Singapore dollar - the value of the plastic and ink that make up the dollar - should be lower than its currency value. But, the intrinsic value of a person is his innate character. It should be higher than the values of his title and his pay. A learned Roman refused to serve his emperor and was reduced to eating porridge, considered a poor man's food. Someone taunted him, saying: 인터넷카지노  "If you know how to serve Caesar you don't have to eat porridge."   He replied: "If you know how to eat porridge, you don't have to serve Caesar." Once, I was surprised that a millionaire was caught for financial corruption. "Didn't he have enough?" I exclaimed. My wife, who overheard me, said: "What do you know? You have never even smelled a million!" 인터넷바카라 Good point. If I already had a million, would I be practising the philosophy of one of my very rich students who once told me: "Sir, you can never have too much money." A really great man is one who, while serving Caesar, also knows how to eat only rice or even porridge, if necessary. Such integrity is a rarity.
