Suppertime (Part 1): TGIF

Thank God it’s Friday! We hear people screaming Tgif every single week; it’s the weekends that keep us going after all. And for that, we should have a Friday feast! And what better ways to celebrate then to have a good supper surrounded by all your local favourites, and countdown to Saturday!

And how about some latest news to spice up your Friday? Gossips. From Manhattan upper east side to ordinary folks like us; there’s nothing like a piece of juicy gossip, maybe other a slice of very delicious cake. You gossip, I gossip, everybody gossip, just that while some talks more, others prefer to listen.

Popiah and me goes a long way back, our relationship is very complex; I got to know her when I was a kid, I would always hang out at the coffee shop my relatives had a stall in, and gazed at her shyly. “Go on, approach her, they would cheer me on by the side.” I plucked up my courage, took a step forward, and I said, “Hello P, my name is B, can I take a bite of you?”

If P and I had some history, then C will be my present. We meet every week, or at least I try to meet her as often as possible – our secret rendezvous. And did I tell you that I like her being toned and black, she’s definitely more tasty that way!

I have a love-hate relationship with S. On one hand, I love her fiery and gusty attitude, but on the other I always can’t help sweating nervously at the sight of her. Oh my. Twist in some lime, and dip in the sour-tangy cincaluk, baby I’m yours.

There are two type of girls, one which is girlfriend-material, and the other’s prospective wife-material which you can bring home to show your parents. And K’s definitely the latter – my whole family love her so much!

The popiah was from the famous Long house, but I think the one which I had in Bukit timah food centre is a franchise stall, for the real deal I need to make a trip down to Toa Payoh lorong 7! I love carrot cake for the eggs inside, and I only eat the black ones, no white carrot cake for me please.

And for the first time, food blogs in our food-tribe actually failed me when I tried to Google for BBQ stingray! How can it be possible that nobody blog about this lovely; her hot and spicy appearance with some kick-ass moves up her sleeves! Okay, the sambal chili was quite unlike the normal ones, it’s difficult to describe, try it out for yourself! Sambal Kangkong has already established itself as a must-order dish every time I had BBQ stingray.

And YAY to Fridays, if you haven’t got any idea how to celebrate this wonderful day, why not have some supper later? I got the idea of a Friday feast from my favourite author & friend, lifeforbeginners, this post is for you Kenny!

p.s: If you have any good stingrays to recommend, let me know and I will check them all out one by one, I’m thinking of doing a stingray-foodtrail! xoxo, you know you are hungry!
