Oranges are not the only fruit

I did not eat a single mandarin orange today. I had chok (thick Cantonese-style porridge), lasagna, pineapple tarts, bak kwa, kueh lapis, muruku, chocolates, nuts, and finally a very non-traditional dinner of lamb tagine, Moroccan mint tea and two bottles of Trappist beer to round off the day --- but not a sliver of mandarin orange.

However, I came home with eight oranges --- four for the remaining Chinese New Year visiting I have to do in the next few days, four to eat when I feel like it and because my mom thought she had too many and did her best to offload some on me. Maybe I'll toss some into the bag for tomorrow's Battle of Pasir Panjang Commemorative Walk.

I have read ur blog and its very interesting! You are better than any food guide sold in bookshops or any entertainment guide!
I think u also covered my Father in one of your post (Gordon's Katong Vadai), its no longer around as we have no time, because we are running 2 pub along east coast road. Legends and Legacy.
I was hoping that maybe you could email me some statistics on how many people visit your blog and maybe you could publish something on my 2 pubs? My email address is [email protected]
I will also link up your blog with mine (legendstolegacy.blogspot.com)

Appreciate the compliment! And it's a pity that Katong Vadai is no more.

I don't carry solicited coverage on my blog, but thanks for your interest.
