Chili Crab

Touted as the culinary emblem of Singapore, Chili Crab is a well known dish in the Lion City that not having it while visiting the country is tantamount to saying you didn't have the best experience at all. Many claim it to be among the city-states' must try foods. As a proof to this claim, it's listed on the 35th spot in the World's 50 Most Delicious Foods by CNNgo. Chili Crab is a dish that provides you with a good mix of taste sensation. It's slightly sweet, savoury and spicy. There are a lot of variations and different ways of preparing this dish.

Weekend Dinner #5: Kids & Adult Fusion

Meat Ball Linguine and Pepperoni Pizza surely fit to this criteria. To complete the menu, I've added a salad and a popular Filipino dish - Pork Steak. I ended the repertoire with a luscious Banana Blueberry Parfait and Macaron Parfait. I'm still salivating as I mention this food selection. This dinner was so indulging that I won't mind having it again the next time.
Greek Salad What you need: Mix Greens, cherry tomatoes (halves), feta cheese, black olives (halves), cucumber (cut into cubes), cruotons, vinaigrette dressing How to make: Prepare the vinaigrette by mixing 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil, 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar, 1 tbsp sugar, 1/2 tsp dijon mustard and 1 tsp finely chopped garlic until emulsified.

Legoland, Malaysia

This is by far, the post that's most heavily loaded with pictures! Having said that though, Legoland is more than just meet the eye. We've visited this newly opened theme park in Iskandar, Malaysia a few weeks ago and we're more than delighted that we did. It's relatively smaller in size compared to other popular theme parks like Disneyland and Universal Studios but it's definitely packed with so much fun and adventure. This was the crowd at the ticket booths on a friday morning (just minutes before the park opens).

 Situated right after the entrance gate is the biggest Lego shop that you can find in Asia.




The theme park is divided into seven major attractions:
1. The Beginning
2. Miniland
3. Lego City
4. Land of Adventure
5. Imagination
6. Lego Kingdoms
7. Lego Technic

Each attraction is filled with exciting rides and lots of activities to enjoy. They range from just pure fun to educational programs designed to encourage creativity and out-of-the-textbook ideas…
