Colleagues and I went to Dover Food Centre to have lunch because a colleague said that the fruits and juice stall uncle is closing his stall and it’s the last day of operation. It seems he has been ‘forced’ to go by rivals in the food centre. So many things have happened and even the fruit stall’s van has been vandalised! (This is according to our sources!)
It seems he has been selling his things so cheap that people are not buying from other stalls. There goes our $1 juice with no ice added. The juice is cold because he stores the fruits in the fridge first. Now we have to go back to crappy stalls that sells you only 1/3 cup juice and lots of ice. (and these crappy places charge you more if you say you don’t want ice!) Sigh….
Before we have our fruits. We went to have our food first. There were empty tables in front of the curry stall, so we decided to eat curry! Lots of different kinds of curry! The 4 of us decided to order 4 different kinds of curry and share.
The Vegetable Curry. This has the lightest taste of all the curry. For the healthy and those who need fibre. 😉
The Fish Curry. The fish is not bad, was fresh, but the portion is small. ;-(
The tow pok was also yummy! Love curry soaked tow pok that squirks out curry when you bite it!
The Mutton Curry. The mutton is nice and it seems that it is our favourite curry.
It’s thick and best poured over the rice.
The Pork Curry. We thought they got a pig that’s on diet? LOL
The curry is nice, but it’s too bony!
Have you ever wondered how many grains of rice is there in a bowl of rice?
I think this plate of rice has probably 3469 grains of rice!
How did I derive the number?
Usually a cup of uncook rice gives you around 2 bowls of cooked rice right?
A grain of rice is usually around 25 mg and a cup of rice is around 200 grams. So that will give you around 8000 grains of rice. I am guessing this plate has 3469 grains, do you think I am correct? LOL…
So after lunch, our dear colleague who has become the fruit uncle’s best customer ordered a mix fruit platter. This huge plate costs only $5. Not much selection left because he has not been ordering fruits.
But there was loads of agar-agar, jackfruit, pineapples, water melon and rock melon (hidden below).
