Yay but what was great was after the paper I rewarded myself with a super fulfilling lunch at Santouka Ramen! My second trip there and this time I had a 1-for-1 deal ^^ Was an extremely satisfied customer after the first visit, after an extremely delectable bowl of Shoyu Ramen (small) and some juicy pan-fried gyoza :-O
Went back to Santouka with Junyao today (yay thanks for being my lunch buddy today bitch!) and this was what I had:
Everyone recommended me to try their pork cheek and almost everyone had a serving of it on their tables. Therefore, this was a must this time! Went for a different soup base, had the kara-miso (spicy miso) this time and had it in medium size hehe. Oh lord I was in heaven for a good whole 30minutes and the serving was actually quite huge that I was EXTREMELY FULL. Maybe it was due to the lack of sleep the night before that resulted in a smaller appetite, but I finished everything anyway, leaving a small mouthfuls of noodles behind :) The ramen + pork cheek was $20.20 and the tamago was $1.50, if you're interested:)
Extremely gorgeous slices of pork cheek goodness. Not a fan of pork besides pork ribs, but this doesn't have the strong pork "smell" !:)
Santouka's gotta be one of my favourite ramen places for now! And definitely scoring better than Ippudo on my chart because I like that the outlet at Central was tucked away in an ulu corner of the mall, albeit the space being a little bit crammed. Because of its location, I can quietly devour my bowl of ramen in peace HEHEHE

Was feeling really full after lunch but still felt like having desserts. You know, there's a separate stomach for desserts, right? Went to Marble Slab and had their Country Waffles with Ice cream. Their salted caramel ice cream is a favourite! But waffles wise, Creamier and Strangers' Reunion still win hands down (:
By this time I was already falling into a state of food coma, and the moment I reached back hall I just knocked out straight HAHAHA. So gonna gain weight at this rate!
This is no-go though, been studying out for the whole of November and treating myself to a better meal at least once a week to calm the stressed soul (LOL) have caused me to overspend! I need to repent for December.
& yes, December is here! Last month of 2013 and the year is really going to end soon. Gotta make the best out of it :-)
