Bishamon Sapporo Ramen

It is rather strange how this particular day, I just felt like a popsicle in the office and really wanted something soupy or hot to warm me up. After a bit of hmm'ing, we agreed to try out the new ramen joint at the basement of Raffles City.

We decided to order the fried tofu ($4) as a starter just to stave off a bit of that awful feeling of hunger. The agedashi tofu was pretty decent - served piping hot and crispy firm on the outside, with plenty of bonito flakes, wimpy looking but added tons of flavour.

I got the miso vegetable ramen ($12) that looked really attractive at the onset, possibly due to effective use of multiple types of colored capsicum.

The soup was not too salty and yet tasted rich if not borderline heavy. It was not as oily as Miharu, and luckily so, because I think if it was any oilier, it would really become quite "jelat".

The noodles were also curly like Miharu's, but not as smooth and tasty because it lacked the bite that I prefer in my noodles.

But Bishamon's serving is pretty generous though. There was lots of other vegetables in addition to the colored capsicums, like, bean sprouts, spring onions, bamboo shoots and baby bok choy. Their special miso ramen ($13.50) had 3 thick slices of char siu (but they felt was too tough though)!

Unfortunately, the vegetable miso ramen does not come with the ajitama (stewed egg). But one can easily top up an additional $1 to get this:

Lava-licious! That egg was the most perfect stewed egg I had ever come across - firm egg white protecting the barely cooked yolk. I totally regretted not asking for top-up.

The service staff is pretty young and earnest but very raw. Maybe they will get better with experience. No biggie though. While I would not write this place off since the ramen was decent, I probably would not rush back again.

How do you juggle it all :( ?

I just feel that I don't have enough time - for the husband and  much less for myself!

During the workday, I make sure I try to go home on time so I could spend a couple of hours with A, and put him to bed. Then it's time to have my last pump at about 9pm before I just want to  zone out and crash.  The boy wakes up at least 3 times ever since his last leap when he learnt how to stand. Additionally, he fell really ill for the first time (i.e. antibiotics).  Prior to that, he cries 1-2 times but easily soothed with pacifier or with some milk. Because of these frequent interrupted sleep, the man and I took turns to fall ill as well, and it is difficult to recover. I still have the head colds and occasionally coughing spells.

On weekends, our schedule revolves around family events, and then I try to plan so that A can try to get a nap or 2 as well as to plan our routes throughout the day so I would end up somewhere comfortable to pump when I needed to.  Often the nap part fails,…

OOOh, new flavour!

I have been eating Quest nutrition protein bars for years! I love the taste and they are less guilty than the real deal.  The flavours are pretty spot on and they are available at  I recently shared about this site as well.

I eat at least one of them a day to satisfy that sweet tooth. My favourites so far are the cinnamon roll and smores.  But I'm excited that a new flavour has been launched and can't wait for the Oatmeal Chocolate Chip flavour to arrive!

Lunching at the Bodacious Cafe and Bistro

I seldom venture out to eat at the Biopolis' restaurants, learning my lesson early on that most of the eateries here are not worth the calories or the prices.
But I had a business need that day and found myself with a reservation at Bodacious. To be honest, no reservation was required as the restaurant was not packed even on a work day lunch hour. Yet we struggled to gain the service staff's attention.  After the initial hiccup, our food arrived fairly quickly. Chicken pesto salad for her and a tenderloin steak without fries for me.  
The chicken salad looked dry and not really appetizing; she finished about 3/4 of it.  

The tenderloin was small, stated 6.5oz.  It came up to about my palm size.  it was really tender, perhaps a tad too tender for me, as it borderlined mushy.  Perhaps it was sous-vide first? I don't know but I do know I didn't like that.

Final straw was when I ordered a skinny latte from the barista. He understood my order as the receipt indicated "…
