The beginning and the end
of this tiny adventure…
This started from me, craving for Sauteed Green Mung Bean Soup and Bee missing Tinola, or Chicken Ginger Soup.
Most ingredients are readily available here, specifically in my bestfriend Sheng Shiong, the neighborhood budget friendly supermarket except for the important leafy veggies Malunggay and Chili Pepper Leaves…
Since I’ve been in Mustafa once and saw Malunggay is available there, I decided to go ahead, never mind the cost of the trip and all, and just head there.
When niceyfemme has something in her mind, nothing, as in nothing can stop her. Whoah!
I bought some food stuff like this one…..
I like this… More so Cheese Naan… That made me gain like 8-10 lbs in two weeks… That addictive! (That cheese naan I love is made by Chef Sahani Bairagi of Spices of The Peninsula Manila.)
The birdie that scared me. Takaw!
And so this is the second half of my Mustafa adventure hehehhe…..
Roaming = Hunger
I headed to Mustafa around 1300H and haven’t had my lunch yet, so after two hours of roaming around in my happy place, I naturally felt hunger. But in this case strong, very loud crumbling noises from my tummy.
I didn’t know where to find yummy food there. I remember my Indian friends Gopi and Raja mentioning before that there are so many yummy Indian food stalls and restaurants in Mustafa. So I wonder which one?
I walked and walked and chose this one.
The guy who runs this restaurant or stall was nice enough to let me snap some shots there….. Here he is…
I just can’t remember his name…. Sorry!
Looked yum to me….
I chose this.. This has a little bit of everything….. Meat, veggies and seafood…..
And here is how my plate looked like.
Took this video as an evidence of it’s existence before I “finished” it hehehe….
What can I say? I liked it! I liked the seven spice chicken the best.
I was able to handle the heat of this food, thanks to a bottle of water and a KitKat… Eating something sweet can help when you ate something too spicy..
The street beside my table….
I think my jeans shrunk, sumikip kasi eh heheheh…. Ok I just ate too much aminin ko na hahaha!
So I decided to give it some time to settle and just sit where I was for a few minutes.
Oh and it was already 1630H (yeah way too late for lunch) then so I decided to head straight home. Headed to bestfriend MRT….
A street in Little India..
The first time Bee and I went to Mustafa, we got a little confused. We alighted in Little India station. Turned out, Mustafa is closer to Farrer Park station. This time around, I still almost forgot that and was a little confused at first whether to alight in Little India or Farrer Park, so I called Bee. He remembered so I didn’t get lost and walk around until my feet hurt.
See I get lost a lot hehehe… I always end up walking for like an hour trying to find my way but it’s alright, it’s part of the thrill of the “adventure”.
I know other people have their own things they like doing for reasons only they truly understand. Usually because of sentimental reasons that has something to do with their past and this is just one of mine. Psychology thingy. So interesting, right?
Reach home so tired but I still cooked Tinola with Malunggay. We liked it so much I forgot to take photos and only remembered when what’s left was bones.
But it was good. Another memorable day to add in niceyfemme history.
