.. the story continues.. Day 2 & 3…
Seems like everywhere I look, there stands the Flyer.. hounding me, calling my name.. It’s day two and I have not stepped on to that wheel of death yet. Maybe later.. (maybe never)
Cantonese cuisine with a twist, shimmy and shake… Fusion Cantonese I believe is the right term. Plates change with every course, and waitresses wear cheongsams, Cantonese master chef Simon Ho prepares tempting specialties like Foie Gras Peking duck, wok-fried lobster in chili sauce with sautéed prawns and canteloupe, baked codfish with champagne sauce and steamed bean curd with scallops, mashed prawns, and crab roe.
Mix it up, slice it down, plonk it on a plate (but in dainty bite sizes).. and voila ! you have Fusion Chinese cuisine! Got to love it.

Kampung Glam! I should fit right in!
Actually, there is nothing Glam about this place.. and that is precisely why, I fit right in:P
Don’t get me wrong, I loved Hai Tien Lo and everything, but this is were I get to suck the marrow out of life…
or rather marrow out of bone.. as the case may be.
SUP TULANG HAJI KADIR ! The sexy A. Bourdain ate here and I prayed I was sitting in the very seat his Royal hottie-pants sat in.. (Hairy, are you sure this is the right stool?!)
As with every major sporting event… you need to warm up. The red fried noodles was good…
Note the ridiculously red color – apparently this is the Singapore sambal lending its gorgeous hue to the noodle. Feels so natural eating fluorescing, red noodles.
Where’s my Tulang.. ?
“Hairy! Why didn’t you warn me..”
“Erm, Ciki.. you can always use a tissue to hold the bones so that they don’t stain your hands..”
Huh? And end up looking like a prissy princess .. pfft.. if Bourdain can do it so can I.
At this point, the Haji Kadir representative sees my miffed expression and hurries over and tells us – NO DYE ah..! Singapore Sambal is like that red one.. no dye, no dye..
(Later we club the night away with red fingers that would not wash clean… but at that point, I believed him.. sure.. )
Hairy calls it practice.
Haji Kadir & M Baharudeen,
Stall B1-15, Golden Mile Food Centre,
Opening hours – 12.30pm – 1.30am.
“Don’t rush me Hairy!”
“I might believe that fluorescent red tulang is not dye, but I am not stupid Hairy..”
They have 9 themed rooms here for the avid party goer to pick from..
The Bellini Room, Movida, Mono… Even a Chinese music Party room.. how cool is that?
At first, beers by the bottle.
I’d like to think of this as my ..
Wong Kar Wai moment (part 1)
“I know you can.. but the real question is, can you wear tails like that and plaster your head with industrial strength hair gel and still sing with a straight face, Hairy…”
(Hairy’s rolling on the ground clutching his sides… we leave before the bouncers can kick us out)
Closing time – by the Semisonics
Open all the doors and let you out into the world
Turn all of the lights on over every boy and every
One last call for alcohol so finish your whiskey or
You don’t have to go home but you can’t stay here
Thanks for being such a sport and such a great host. Happy Birthday Hairy!
