Sun daze

On Sundays, we brunch.

On Sundays, we brunch...

The Singaporean way.

After a month of continuous travels, there is only so much eggs and ham (not green lol) I can take before I start to crave my local must-haves.

And so, we I threw my #eatclean, no-carbs, gluten-free, paleo-wannabe diet out of the window and forced the hubs out of bed at 8am and drive us me to Toa Payoh Lor 1.

Beats egg benny any day :ok_hand:

We got the hokkien mee (large portion, $5) from our trusty Tian Tian Lai uncle who has seen the husband through his school, then NS and now married years, Chey Sua Carrot Cake that was soooo deserving of every single bit of our 30-minute wait and good ol' Yu Sheng done the traditional way from the stall next door.

I even got an extra plate of lard - deep-fried to a perfect crisp - from the hokkien mee uncle (FOC, all the regulars know about it!)

So sinful I know but when I sin, I sin all the way. Since already breaking diet, might as well right?

And then I washed it all down with a good cup of teh peng - the full version. Not kosong, not siew dai. Extra sweet, extra milky and well-worth every single calorie.

I'll diet tomorrow. I promise.
