Crab Day, Crab Night

It always amazes me what SK decides to bring back from her trips. During a recent Bangkok trip, she actually bought a packet of kway teow. She stir-fried it with chicken fillet and kale, and brought it over for breakfast. Later in the morning, we headed out to Midvalley Megamall as SK needed to get her luggage repaired. In our haste, we arrived even before the shutters were raised. Once she got her luggage sent in, we did some shopping. Always great to move around before the crowds set in. Mum and SK even did a free oxygen therapy from Elizabeth Arden. Too bad they couldn't squeeze a sale out of us.

Lunch was at Define:food, a new restaurant opposite the now-defunct Tim Ho Wan. A word of warning, the place ain't very disabled friendly. Ascended a long flight of stairs with no bannister to access the air-conditioned area. Grabbed two things from the menu-- crab cakes and duck confit. The crab cakes were small, but bursting with crab meat. The pair of cakes were topped with a mango salsa and served with a hypnotizing swirl of tangy, white sauce. The duck confit was also delicious with a nice crisp.

MaisonSK hosted dinner that night after a long hiatus. My sister and the Monsters were also there. SK whipped up a dish of Thai green curry that was very authentic thanks to the cooking paste that she bought in Bangkok. Her dish of steamed mud crab (AEON at Midvalley sells really fresh crabs) with egg and Hoegaarden Radler was also fantastic. Right after dinner, I played Monopoly with the kids. Gosh, just the process of buying up all the property took so long. Been ages since I played that.
