Bangkok Street Mookata – Jurong West

These days, there seems to be a rising trend in Mookata restaurants sprouting up in various parts of Singapore. It’s the BBQ grill surrounded by a steamboat moat. Mookata deviates from the tradition use of butter when grilling meats. Instead, it is replaced with pork lard which adds flavour and taste to the meats and soup base. Pigging out at Bangkok Street Mookata   We noticed a new restaurant Bangkok Street Mookata that opened end Nov 2014 and it is rather crowded most of the times. Hence, we decided to give it a try!  It’s actually quite packed for a rainy day. The place isn’t that accessible and it’s recommended to drive a car to park at a outdoor carpark there. Not to worry, there’s always plenty of carpark spaces there. The Menu:  Platter for 4 @ $39, Platter for 2 @ $22 We skipped the platter as we had wanted more meats and not dishes like the corn, hotdogs, fishballs etc. The ala-carte menu orders Before grilling our food, we got the Pork Lard from one of the waiters. We were given 2 pieces only and had to keep asking for the pork lard as the quantities given are like a couple of pieces at a time. Anyways, as we brushed the surface of the dome-shaped wok, we noticed that there were black pieces of scraped off stuff on the pork lard. Food Quality: The marinated meats, mainly the garlic pork collars, pork bellies, beef, chicken tasted good. We reckoned that they were thawed meats but we can’t taste any staleness/soggyness  as the marination was done well. 🙂 The scallops, golden mushrooms, Shishamo are good choices too for this thai grilling style. What I will not recommend is the order of Maggie Mee (which my friend did) which is sold at $1.50 for half a normal packet size. Food Quantity: For the meats, the price starts at $1.90 a plate and the serving was a few pieces of meat which was small. But what more can we ask for at $1.90, $2.90 a plate? We added on to the orders to quite a number of plates otherwise there weren’t enough to go around. One portion of meat. Ambience: Simple affair at Singapore’s Coffeeshops which is dining around simple round tables and plastic chairs with the open concept. Yes there are some live and dead cockroaches around and I do hope they will clean up on this. Other than that, diners can still...

BMW Car Show – BMW World 2014 Stories in Motion

We attended the BMW Car Show – BMW World 2014 Stories in Motion at Marina Bay Sands (MBS) Singapore, which as held at MBS’s Expo & Convention Hall from 1 – 3 Aug 2014. “The BMW World 2014 Stores in Motion is set to be the largest single automotive group showcase in Asia. It tells captivating stories of BMW and MINI on innovation, design and luxury.” Our free tickets: The mini was the first car to greet us at the entrance and I simply adored the chic display! As there were many car enthusiasts attending the Car Show, we had to queue and were only allowed in by batches by the organizer to avoid overcrowding. Despite this, it pays off waiting to check out these awesome rides that you’ll like. Ranging from the retro to modern and futuristic designs, all these displays are housed in the same compound. The BMW1, M6, BMWi3 and BMWi8 series and Bikes are all displayed just metres apart. I took picture of the bike as the design reminded me of the Ghost Rider Movie image. Test drives of the latest BMW and MINI models are also available! Just approach any of the Sales Consultants onsite to book for your test drive. The new BMWi8 Concours d’Elegance Edition packs a punch in its special design which makes it unique. I don’t usually fancy matte cars but the BMWi8 is decked out in matte grey, blue accents at the headlights and a curvy sleek back design.  BMW M6 Coupe – Personally, I prefer the M6 designs. Official figures say that the acceleration from 0-100 km/h (62mph) comes in about 4 secs, with the electronically governed top speed at 250 km/h! It’ll be great to drive this on long distance road trips. BMW M6 Convertible BMW i3 For eco-friendly drivers, the BMW Smart Charging is now available in Singapore! THE RETRO CARS BMW M1 – The M1 was conceptualized as a race car, and then homologated through civilian series production. These cars were hand-built from 1978 to 1981 and the M1 is the rarest production BMW sports car in the company’s lengthy history. Classic Isetta Mini-Car – This model was the world’s first mass-production in 1955 and was the top-selling single-cylinder car in the world. Classic MINI Cooper The New MINI Cooper – promotes lifestyle of a young funky executive. Fancy mini cars and bikes for your little ones? These are really cute that the kids just refuse to leave these rides. Seems like the brand is...

We got there early and the place was still empty.  🙂 I was craving for the prama ham and we needed somewhere with good, quiet with nice ambience for catchup… and so I suggested to dine over there for a dinner buffet.   Here’s some of the starters… … As the theme for the night was the Italian Job, we could order a freshly made Pasta or some Pizzas as part of our mains.
