Qianhu Fish Farm: Somewhere To Bring Your Kids This June Holidays!


Qianhu Fish Farm had very humble beginnings.

The Yap family started off as pig farmers before venturing into the ornamental fish business. They converted old pig pens into concrete ponds and bred Guppies for local exporters.

There is no turning back for the small family business which has since grown into the corporation it is today. In year 2000, Qianhu became a public listed company on the SGX.

I enjoy visiting the farm to escape from the bustle of city life. I also like to get my aquarium supplies here because it is not too far from where I stay but most importantly is, watching the fishes has a therapeutic effect on me.

Besides, the aquarium shop near my place got their supplies from Qianhu too so it makes sense for me to come here straight where I can find everything I need all under one roof.

You can enjoy an idyllic afternoon here with your loved ones to relieve the childhood days of longkang fishing or simply pamper your feet with a fish spa.

You can also seek advise here if you are setting up an aquarium for the first time.

大成熟食面家 Tai Seng Noodle House @ Amoy Street Food Centre


Since I was at Robinsons Road the other day, I decided to have lunch at the nearby Amoy Street Food Centre.

The 'homework' I did the night before narrowed down my choices to Tai Seng Noodle House - specifically for its Wanton Mee. My reason for picking this stall is attributed by the many photographs of the Wanton Mee with its generous serving of ingredients.

I could not believe my eyes when I saw photos of the said Wanton Mee that I had to come see this for myself!

And seeing is believing.

建记辣椒板面 Kin Kin Chilli Pan Mee @ 534 Macpherson Road


I have never tasted dried Ban Mian (or Pan Mee, as they are known in Malaysia) before and have always been intrigued by its taste whenever I see Malaysian bloggers blogging about it.

Thus, when Kin Kin Chilli Pan Mee from KL set up a branch here in Singapore two months ago, it got me excited.

I had wanted to go pay them a visit then but was upset to learn that the queue is two hours long!

Disgruntled, I decided to wait until the hype is gone before going down.

Hua Feng Roasted Delights @ Tiong Bahru


While on a chicken hunt at Tiong Bahru recently, lunching at Zhong Yu Yuan Wei (忠于原味) was included in the plan.

Unfortunately, I was dismayed to find this notice stuck on their door when I got there.

Having no luck with their Bu Jian Tian (不见天) pig's armpit Char Siew Wanton Mee, I went in search of the other Wanton Mee stall.

I remember my lecturer telling me on Facebook that there is another Wanton Mee stall called Hua Feng Roasted Delights (华丰烧腊) at Tiong Bahru Market which happens to be right next to the popular 178 Shark Fritters Lor Mee stall.

Tiong Bahru estate

My curiosity was aroused when I learn that there were Cockerels running amok at Tiong Bahru.

They are not your usual chickens per se but murals put up by artist Ernest Goh as part of the 2014 Tiong Bahru Heritage Fiesta.

I knew I had to come check them out when I first saw the photos from the Cheekiemonkies!

Without much further ado, let us go catch some chickens!
