Yayy, Mommy's buying the car! Vroom!
He seems to like it! So much so he refused to let others have a turn on it. Even when a very pretty mei mei asked him nicely. Which is so unusual because he is typically so generous when it comes to sharing toys. Especially with pretty girls. Yes yes, so it appears that he does like his new car, but let's see how long it lasts.
After hanging out at East Coast Park (which we seem to do a lot these days), we ended up at Waraku Japanese Restaurant (which we also seem to do a lot these days).
It was an easy choice, since it's convenient, air-conditioned and baby-friendly.
DH had the Waraku Hiyashi Ramen (SGD8.80) served chilled with a sesame dipping sauce. The nice thing about this is that they served 2 different types of noodles, soba and inaniwa udon (thin udon). There was also egg and prawns and julienned cucumber which provided an interesting crunchy contrast. It was a hit on a hot sunny day.
I also had cold chirashi udon (SGD12). This was served with slices of sashimi, seaweed and bonito flakes on top. It was an interesting take on chirashi sushi (which is slices of sashimi served on rice). The noodles were coated with a slippery substance like chilled egg white, but I can't really be sure what it is. I quite liked it, but DH didn't really care for the slippery texture.
