Xmas Makan Outing @ Bugis & Orchard

Working life is so busy till I often heard......
"No time oh..."
"Long time didn't meet up with friends around as last time d..."
"Tired :(..."
"Sigh...always OT, but no OT pay..."

So, for those who are still studying, appreciate your study life and friends around you. Once you are in working world, your time might be occupied with work, bonding among friends not as strong as during school time due to various commitments, etc. 

That's why a week ago, organized Makan & Xmas gathering (Makan! That's what I like to organize during university time) around Bugis & Orchard area with university mates, especially now is holiday season & exams were over, it's time to gather around & celebrate!

Rui Yang suggested to have dinner at Xin Yuan Ji 新源记 as this restaurant sells famous Fish Head / Meat Soup 鱼头炉. Long queues can be seen whenever the shop is open, especially lunch & dinner time, so we arrived early (around 6pm on Sunday) to avoid the crowds.

It's situated at Tan Quee Lan Street, just opposite Bugis Junction, easily accessible from Bugis MRT.

Next thing is to taste famous Ah Chew Desserts 阿秋甜品 at Liang Seah Street, the street nearby before taking public bus to Orchard, enjoying Christmas decoration.

Phototakings around while waiting for friends...
 Pure Water Christmas Tree!!!

Bugis is also famously known for steamboat buffet, eat till you drop

At 新源记,

Group photos before makan fight starts...

Hey, told you guys don't fight liao...(note the queues outside, getting longer & longer...)

 The famous Fish Head Pot 鱼头炉, served with fresh fish head / meat, even food critic Min Liang said its good! Love the fish soup (we asked for soup refill for N times). Best served with a group of friends &  family members. MUST TRY!

 Not to forget its zi char, delicious as well too!


 and More... (hungry again...)

Truly enjoyed the outing, as haven't been really phototaking and eat around with friends long long time already.

Going into Year 2011, while people are looking forward on New Year resolutions, let's not forgetting to review what we have achieved throughout the past year. Improve on what we have achieved, to become a better person!

Happy New Year 2011!!!
