Alexandra Village Food Centre

I don't go Alexandra Village Food Centre for meals often, only once in a while, those times when i was there, i always see many people at this stall, i was telling myself, i will come back one of the day to try out their foods.

(1) I had to have a quick snap of the stall, as at that time, i was having my meal, it was peak period, and beside the table i was sitting, it was a passage way, and people were passing by, while taking this picture, a lady was passing by, she must be curious about me taking picture, and then she turn to take a look at the stall.

(2) I am half hearted at that time, as i wanted to have Xiao Long Bao, or Steamed Dumpling, Pan-Fried Dumping or Szechun Spicy Wanton.  Since i have not tried Szechun Spicy Wanton, chose Szechun Spicy Wanton @ $4 (10 pieces).

(3) and also a Sweet and Sour Soup @$2

Usually, i will go for Zumba on Tuesday, being an auntie, nowadays, i go for those free session organise by Health Promotion Board instead of signing up for it at Community Centre.

As it's a rainy day today and the rain starts before noon, i was worry that the rain won't stop, and it will be cancel if there's rain.  But luckily the rain stops around 4pm.

As on Tuesday, the workout is Zumba @ Mapletree Business City (Yesterday the session was at Labrador Park), Zumba @ Capital Building, Kpop @ Lot 1 Shopping Mall.  Only the session at Lot 1, it's under shelter, whereby Mapletree Business City and Capital Building, it's open space.

Since the rain has stopped, my kaki and i decide on Zumba @ Labrador Park as the timing and place suits us.  Capital Building is too far for us, and as for the Kpop in Lot 1, we will go if it's raining.

As my kaki is not familiar with Labrador Park, she get her hubby to drive her there. and she reach the place 5 ~ 10 min late.  After around 10 min of the workout, she left, at that time, i didn't manage to talk to her as the workout is ongoing.

After the workout, i message her asking how come she left and she replied she quarrel with her husband.  Replied her what happen, she didn't reply.  So when i reach home, i called her, but she rejected my call and reply with she can't talk at that moment, reply her me calling to see if she's all right.  Will follow up with her later of the day, hope she is all right.


Back to my meal, has been sometimes since i went to Collins, was at the outlet in West Coast, had the Grilled Salmon Fillet with Mango Sauce, Pasta and Salad @ $8.90.

Capitol Piazza

Actually, on the day i went to look see look see at the Subaru Challenge on 3rd Nov, after that, i went to Capitol Piazza as they just recently started a free Zumba workout by Health Promotion Board there.  Only to realised when i reached there that the workout is cancelled due to maintenance when a staff there came to inform those who were there about it.  The lady took down our particulars.  While on the way home, i receive a call from the lady  as per below message.

(1) Nice of them to give out a $10 voucher for Palette restaurant and goodies as mentioned in the message.

(2) So on Deepavali Day, i ask my mum along to go, actually she didn't want to go as she mention that the place was far, so i told her, this place is newly open after renovation and we don't go there often, since have a voucher to collect, why not go there walk walk and makan.  So on that morning, she wanted to go to another place to have porridge before going down to Capitol Piazza.
