here's a crazy photo of many pandas to prove my sincerity.
Just a couple of pictures to show i'm still (relatively) enjoying whatever free time.

Located at the far corner on the second floor at #02-03, a colleague who had tried this stall had recommended us to try the wanton mee from here. When we reached, i found out that they had a wide variety of other options including Laksa yong tau foo, chicken feet noodles, fried chicken cutlet noodles and also curry chicken mee.
On separate occasions I decided to have the wanton noodles, fried cutlet noodles with curry and the laksa yong tau foo and found them all very satisfying.
The serving portions are adequate, and the prices reasonable (from $3 onwards).
The wanton mee ($3) is the traditional sort with thin noodles that easily soak up the dark, slightly sweet sauce, and wantons that are large, juicy and tender. What impressed me most was their char siew- it was roasted to perfection- crisp on the outer, tender and chewy and just the right bit of sweetness on the inside.
The laksa yong tau foo was the winner in my opnion- with laksa gravy that is rich, full of flavour and sufficiently spicy, and yong tau foo that is unique, for $3.5 I felt this meal was really worth what I had paid.

When I first got wind of this class, I was really excited! Being able to attend Yun’s class, and to visit Nong at the same time- literally the best of both worlds! I knew I had to attend.
Their goal to so to bring the "Grow Your Own Food" movement closer to the local community via the means of workshops, activities for families and artisanal products made with love and respect for our earth. Past workshops they've done include fermentation (kimchi and A-cha making!) workshops and soap making workshops.
We arrived around 1015, slightly before the start of class, to walk around and explore Nong. Around 1030, Liv ushered us to the open space to the left of Nong to get us to lay our mats out for class. The class was an invigorating flow class by Yun.
As we were in a sheltered yet open area, it made for a lovely flow class because we could feel the morning breeze from the north, but were shaded from the direct rays of the sun. The instrumental music played by Rupak give the class a really very zen and relaxing feel.
As we weren't quite so hungry, i decided to get a red velvet cupcake from Simply Eden. The cupcake was moist and chewy and of a good consistency. It was slightly disappointing however that there wasn't any cream cheese on the inside or outside- i was hoping for a small surprise while biting into the center but didn't get any.
