Ramen Keisuke Tonkotsu King Four Seasons // Bugis – Rochor Road

Tonkotsu Four Season-1

Tonkotsu Four Season-2

Sometimes taking a lone journey have its perks and a great one. When I’m with someone else, I need to consider what they want and reach to a consensus before heading to eat.

I’m alone and I just walked pass my 3rd (yet to) conquest. I knew I needed to get this Keisuke trilogy done. (3 more to go…hoohoo)

Here I go (alone) into Ramen Keisuke Tonkotsu King Four Seasons – Bugis Branch, felt like an oddball. I was being stared at. No one in the restaurant actually think anyone would come eat alone huh? Like…what’s wrong? Is it really a taboo to eat alone. Anyway, I whipped my X100 out and began snapping away.

This time round, I am more clinical at approach. I will taste every single piece of ingredients on its own.

Tonkotsu Four Season-3

Bean Sprouts 

I find the other 2 outlets tasting better. Still good nonetheless.

Winter Ramen

Noodles – normal // Seaweed + Cha Su + Pork Sukiyaki slices + Tamago

One of the tastiest pork I’ve eaten! Pork Sukiyaki deserves an award.  Tonkotsu slices are satisfying, standard similar to Tonkotsu King – Orchid Hotel branch. Tamago – egg lacks punch. So far, Ramen texture is standard across Keisuke branch. As a whole, this precious bowl of ramen is a little bland for me, Ramen stock tasted too thick and lack depth. It could be because I picked the Winter version of Four Seasons Ramen. Bean sprouts is a winner as refreshing appetizer. I would love to head back to Ramen Keisuke Tonkotsu King Four Seasons and try the other three flavours.

I must confess, I am a fan for Shoyu soup base. My first choice will always be Shoyu soup based Ramen if there is any Shoyu ramen in the menu. So Tonkotsu based ramen is not my favourite. But I have to eat for the hype it’s having.

Commemorate // Lee Kuan Yew 1923 – 2015

Today marks the funeral of a very intelligent man of our era. The first Prime Minister of Singapore.

These 7 days, I found a Singapore i’ve never really seen. It’s so Singaporean, we are united. There’s no arguments or complains about foreigner or MRT breakdown or government policies. Everyone was sincere and everything i see in my facebook wall were display of kindness by we Singaporeans. I find it very beautiful.

About Mr Lee, he is no doubt a man who got things done for a small nation. The iron will and foresight he had for my country was amazing. He is undeniably the man meant to build Singapore. But he surely have a great team that went through thick and thin with him – men who might have been smarter than him! But the ability to make very tough decisions and stick by it makes him outstanding.

I write this post partially to honor the first Prime Minister. But more so, As a son to a father. I somewhat understand how the present PM Lee Hsien Loong feels.
Once again, my condolences to your family on the loss of a great figure.
I feel your loss and pain.

You can be very proud of your father.

Goodbye Mr Lee Kuan Yew.

Dim Sum // Crystal Jade Golden Palace



A good time to celebrate a 23 years of friendship and for Jason’s birthday as well.
Our birthdays falls on the same month. So we were haggling on who is going to treat for this meal of Dim Sum as a birthday gift.

Just last night, Miss HB and I argued about birthday gift.
As for me, nothing beats a peaceful day/night of being with family and close friends, just simply having a meal together.
That’s a perfect gift for me. But miss HB beg to differ.

Anyway, Jason and I merrily when to M1 to pick up a queue number – recontract for iPhone 6+. Waiting time 4 hours.
So we left M1 and headed for either Imperial Treasure or Crystal Jade. Jason never heard of Imperial Treasure so he opted for Crystal Jade Golden Palace.
We set off for our Dim Sum adventure.

Needless to say, the walk to our table seems like we entered into this Shanghai KTV kind of setting – pretty impressive.
