Cycle Singapore: Punggol to Seletar Aerospace

ABBEY: We always wanted to go to Seletar Aerospace Park. And so we did; thru bicycle. Yes, we pedaled the 16-km roundtrip (distance according to Strava). And all we have have is a 1.5 liter of isotonic drink, towel and phone. 

It was fun as we get to see new buildings, landed houses and fields. It was the same time tiring but we need to get there and most importantly to get back home. There is no turning back. As with the park’s name we got to see private planes. Another sight that inspired me to strive harder. 

Next journey is to IKEA.

Cycle Singapore: Seletar Aerospace
Cycle Singapore: TPE / Jalan Kayu

WILL: This time I wish to experience a long cycle. Abbey wants to go to Seletar Aerospace to check out the reataurants there. Combining our wish and wants! Tadaaaannn! It's a date. 

Abbey plotted the route and while planning it he is so anxious becasue the maps directing us to cycle at expressway. Haha! 

Cycling will make you appreciate nature. The greenery landscapes of Singapore and clean air you can breath. 

Imagine the uphill track? One uncle sitting at bus stop looked at me, smiled and there is a look in his eyes that seems asking me "Why you punish yourself?" Haha! 

We happily spend almost 1 hour each way. The next day, I have hard time walking normally. Haha. 

Cycling is a good exercise. You will save money by using bike sharing services, you can help to decongest too the busses and MRT trains. Let's cycle, expolore Singapore. Have healthier FUN!

Lime Lunch Buffet - PARKROYAL on Pickering -- Eatigo 50% off

ABBEY: After our relaxing stay at Pegasus Boutique Hotel, we headed to Lime restaurant at ParkRoyal on Pickering to have lunch. We got 50% off thru eatigo. 

I ate a lot of salmon sashimi and maki sushi. I also had cream dory, roasted beef, crispy fish skin, sweet and sour fish fillet, fried pork belly and chicken. What stood out is their braised beef. It taste like our “beef pares” back in Philippines. Unfortunately the only rice item on their buffet is the lotus leaf glutinous rice. If there would have been white rice then I’ll not leave the place :) 

I also have a couple of merengue, ice cream and cheesecake.

Dessert Station with Matcha Fountain

WILL: What is a celebratio without a feast of food? We reserved seats at Lime Restaurant with 50% promotion at Eatigo. What's the catch? Devour the food you can in a hour. 

What's the best I have seen that is not available in other buffets? 

First, their wheel of cheese and pasta is on it. Want more cheese? Dig in the bottom part and grate off the cheese at the side. Hehe. 

Second. Sweet tooth will definetely will fall in love of the 2-table stretch of desserts. Matcha fountain! Woohoooh! The caramel syrup available for your ice cream! Sugar overload! 

Third, spy on the chunks of mozarella on their salad. Eat more of salad and be healthy and happy! 

Sushi with mayonnaise is a win. I can't help myself but to take more than three of it for each round. 

Coffee and tea is included at the buffet price!

Nam Kee JB Pau - The Grandstand Branch

ABBEY: Nam Kee JB Pau store in Waterway point has never ending queue until all the paos run out. We went to The Grandstand and they have tables for you to dine in. But still the queue is there; three of them to be exact (noodles, paus and dimsum, and drinks). 

We got crispy noodles, pork porridge, two big paos, char siew pau, and siew mai. The noodle soup is delicious. The paos have good amount of fillings and the bun is soft. They are worth the queue :)

In Waterway, we ordered Mee Hon Kuay (gnocchi-like texture) and Ke Kuo Noodle (Maggi-noodle-like) for 4SGD a bowl.

WILL: To partner up our "kampong" stay, we went to The Grandstand and braved ourselves to wait and wait in the loooong queue at JB Pau. 

They have a branch at Waterway Punggol (takeaway counter) and yet we still prefer to hold our curiosity to taste their food on our 7th wedding anniversary celebration. 

I went for porridge that time and there is nothing special on it. What I enjoyed the most is their well-wrapped siew mai. No need to dip on anything. 

Then, after a week, we saw that there's a short queue at the their branch at Waterway Point Punggol, next order is Mee Hon Kuay, only S$4.00. You know gnocchi? Yes! This is the malay style! The "pasta" consistency is firm. The soup is tasty! Oh my! I can eat that every day. 

Now we know why the queue is ALWAYS long. Haha.
