"I'm cheap in the morning"

I just realized that when it comes to comfort food. I like the hawker, street stall types the best. My current favourite is the chee chiong fan with the red sauce and lots of sesame seeds (folks in the office would sometimes point out that I have some seeds in my teeth, very unglam!), followed by 2 soft-boiled eggs and cup of tea, all for S$3.80. While my comfort food for dinner is usually a pricy Japanese meal or a nice juicy steak (which I still can't find one near where I work). Yah, I guess you could say I'm cheap in the morning.



All right, time to put on my geek cap. Took some pix of my latest comic-book related acquisitions. Good time to try out the micro feature of this camera. Found these figures a couple of weeks ago in a little comic book shop and blew almost S$100 on all five of them. There are like over 60 figures in the collection and still growing. From the UK, yhey are lead figures, about 5 inches tall, heavy as hell and hand painted. Beautifully sculpted and oh-so detailed!

I was lucky enough to find all 5 figures of Marvel Comics' biggest and baddest villains! You got Doctor Doom, Magneto, Green Goblin, Red Skull and Loki.


Hey, guess where my next stop is gonna be! Hopefully end August...

Cheong fun with red sauce is also my favourite. I hate the clumpy black sauce most places serve.

Niki: I’ll be dropping by Sapporo too. I hope I have not jinxed it by talking bout it so soon.

Lunch: The red sauce is still the best. Lots of childhood memories there.
