Marina Square Shopping Mall

It was Christopher's first visit after the refurbishment of the Mall. It had undergone a complete makeover and it was exhausting having to navigate through the maze of shops.

There was a wide selection of food establishments in the mall. We couldn't make up our minds what to eat & which food outlet to go to. We bought some snacks instead.

Marina Square #02-223
The stall sells otah (steam fish paste) from Muar, Malaysia. We bought their Deep Fried Otah Balls (4 for S$1.80) which is made of tofu & otah. And an Otah Crepe (S$1.80), which is rice, shredded cucumber & a slice of otah wrapped in crepe. Both snacks were tasty & appetising.

1A curry puffs
These crispy curry puffs have either savoury or sweet fillings . The savoury ones are curry chicken, crab chilli chicken, sardine, black pepper chicken and otah. The sweet fillings are sweet corn, durian & yam paste.

This fragrant coffee Mexican bread(S$1.20 each) is so crispy on the outside & yet so soft in between when it's hot from the oven. The melted butter in the centre leaves a savoury, buttery taste.

Carl's Junior Fastfood Restaurant
The first thing that struck us was the prices of their burgers. Yet the entire outlet was full & we had to wait for 30 minutes before we could get a table. We shared a Charboiled BBQ Chicken Burger combo. The drinks were free-flow. The chicken burger with BBQ sauce was succulent & tasty. The onion rings were dry & bland.

We strolled over to Millenia Walk for lunch.

Moon Fish Pasta & Seafood Restaurant
Millenia Walk, 9 Raffles Boulevard #01-106/107/109-113

We ate at this restaurant 2 years ago and we like their pork chops. Chris ordered a Christmas Special set meal which is Lobster Meringue (S$32.95), with clam chowder soup & Brownie with Vanila ice-cream for dessert. It was a mini lobster, it did taste good. Jaymes had a Chicken Roll(S$16.95) which we all like and I had the Chef's Speciality, 5-star Cod Fish(S$19.95). The portion of cod fish was miserable. It was
so thinly sliced, about 0.5cm thick only.

We ordered a portion of Garlic bread (S$3.95) and a Tiramisu (S$5.50) which is delicious. The food tastes good but it is costly for the prices we are paying.

Candy Empire
Millenia Walk #01-95/96/97/98
There was so much candy & chocolates in this shop. Jaymes & I enjoyed checking out the unusual ones. We dropped Chris many hints on what to get when he needs to cheer us up. hehehe...... Chris bought a box of pocket coffee. He hopes these would keep him awake when he is revising for his exams.

Jaymes bought a tube of Strawberry Squeeze Candy which look like hair gel. He plans to bring it to school to play a joke on his classmates.
