📷#MarketFriday Gotten snacks before missing two Thai | 买了点心前错过两次泰式😎(by @ace108)

in Market Friday • 2 months ago

Out to run a chore earlier this week and ended up at Balestier Road. Since I don't have reason to go there often, I decided to get some snacks. There are two shops along the road famous for these. The other one has a queue I saw when I was taking a bus on Tuesday morning around 11:30am. It wasn't even lunch time yet. This other one is opposite Zhongshan mall. I quick bough a box and cross the road so I didn't take a picture of the shop but the address is on the box if you are interested.

🎶Meanwhile, some music for you to enjoy as you read. This piece is part of Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons, particular the first of the 4 violin concertos, called Spring.
🎶让大家继续读的时候,欣赏一点音乐。这件作品是维瓦尔第的“四季”的一部分 - 4小提琴协奏曲中的第一首,名为“春天”。

I bought 4 sweet and 4 salted tau salt piahs which is a kind of flaky cookie with salted/sweet bean paste inside. The lady at home thought I bought too few. I told her it's 70 cents per piece. She still said I should have bought more after eating a piece. 😎 They have other flavours too.
我买了4个咸的和4个甜点豆沙饼。在家里的女人以为我买的太少了。我告诉她,这是每件7毛强咧。吃了一块后,她还是说我应该买多点。 😎 他们还有其他口味。

Across the road, after buying some stuff in the supermarket at the mall, I was looking for lunch. There was a small Thai place with more than a few people waiting. I checked what they have and decided I didn't want to wait.

There is another Thai place at one corner which had nobody waiting. They have seats but nobody is allowed to eat there anyway. I gave up and decided to cross the road to take the bus.

I checked the bus is going to take more than 10 minutes to come. So, I decided to walk to the bus stop further ahead as there is coffeeshop there and I know one of them is a Thai stall.

After looking awhile, I thought the set meal was a bit too much.

So, I decided on a deep fried pork with rice and a basil chicken with rice. Just about 10 bucks for both.

Back at home, the lady split the meat on both boxes so we could both have some of the pork and some of the chicken. She was happy with the meal too though she had to rush off for a web meeting.
