Beo Crescent Curry Rice

A friend brought us to this dingy-looking stall housed in an old coffeeshop at Blk 40 Beo Crescent many years ago and we have not found another curry rice place which we liked better eversince (esp when there is plenty of parking in the two HDB multi-storey carparks a very short distance away from the coffeeshop).

The stall is run by Hainanese folks. Unfortunately, they are not open during dinnertime (and on Wednesdays) which means that we can satisfy our curry rice cravings only during the weekends.


Our usual orders are: rice, fried eggs, braised cabbage, deep-fried pork strips and taupok – which comes up to approximately $7 for two persons. If there are more than the two of us, we would also order the sambal sotong and/or sambal fish (they use batang fish, for those who are particular about their fish).

The reason why the rice is the focal point in the photograph is because to me, the rice IS the most important thing to eat here. Drenched in three different types of curry sauce, the rice is definitely good enough to eat on its own, I feel.

Happy New Year 2010

For over 2 years, I kept a blog on Blogger but have chosen to keep it private. It is my personal space to write whatever I liked (the frivolous and inane), however I liked (possibly in bad grammar but I try to avoid using Singlish) and whenever I liked.

From time to time, friends have asked about the whereabouts of this mysterious blog because they know that I keep one. My response to that has invariably been “if I tell you then I will have to kill you…”

With the new year, I thought about starting afresh; about setting up a new blog with a different look (and keeping the old blog separately). The stark-looking, simple and uncluttered layout of this template appealed to me. I wanted a background in white because I like white alot and also, I feel that photographs look good against monochromatic colours like white and black.

So here I am, on the last night of the year, in the midst of setting up a new writing space and thinking about the answers to several questions.

Firstly, what should the focus of this new space be? Do I want to continue writing whatever random topic that pops into my mind like before? Or do I want to focus on specific areas – such as food reviews, travel, entertainment, etc – but unfortunately, I am not one bit knowledgeable in these areas; so definitely not.

What I do know is that I don’t really want to write about myself and my [rather dull] life, which inevitably leads to plenty of whining and complaining regarding all sorts of things.

Next, do I still wish to keep this space private or do want to open it up to family and friends? I am not really sure about it too. [So if you are reading this now, then you know which way I have decided on.]

For the time being, I guess I will just focus on writing about things that interest me, ie, a mish-mash of books, food, Korean entertainment, movies, art, etc.

Here goes.
