On Waterloo Street…..

Waterloo Steet wasn’t this colourful in the past :photo

And I would know because I was in a school(St Anthony’s Convent) opposite that street for ten years. The coffeeshop along Waterloo street would always be our ‘last resort’ when we had CCA breaks (we called it ECA then) because Bugis, Cityhall and Bras Basah always appealed to us more. It might have been a different story if the place looked as hip as it does now – with colourful buildings that makes this street look like one for the arts. =) I mean there is the Stamford Arts Centre, Action THeatre, Dance Ensemble and other artsy buildings on it. This picture isnt quite representative (or the best), but I wanted to show you 51 Waterloo St. The building with the poster of the face on it.

We met a friend at Campus Corner in that building – a sprawling store for camping equipment with friendly owners and this unique piece of furniture :


This bench is made entirely of recyled cardboard and according to the owner, can seat 18 people when stretched out to its full length. It’s like an accordion! You can wrap it around a pillar and it’ll look like a round bench. You can also put it straight, or curved like in the picture. I’m rather in awe of this bench although talking about it is more fun than buying it – it costs an entire Grand! =p The most used part of the bench is most comfy (where its dented in the shape of a butt), and I suppose coffee spills wouldn’t be the most convenient thing to clean off of it.

But I digress. I wanted to talk about this other restaurant inside beside Campus Corner. It’s called Fine Palate. Their seating area is small in comparison to the huge kitchen, but classy and cosy :


(Grabbed the above pic off their website)

Then we realised that’s cos they cater. You can tell they mean business when the bread plate is served like this :


The dip on the side (when I asked) is their unique blend. No explanations or elaborations. It tasted of peppers and some cream. Yummy.


The simple Tomato Mozarella Pizza (16) was a really good woodfired pizza. Cracker-ish edges with a slighly chewy centre. I really like this. And if a restaurant can do a simple pizza well, their food cannot go too far wrong =)


The Chicken Quesidillas (8) was lightly crispy on the outside and a little gooey from the melted cheese inside. Quite a lethal combo. Dip that in the salsa sauce and you’ve got a recipe for a really good starter. The bed of lettuce bits added some crunch, colour and lightness to this plate.


Dan enjoyed their cheeseburger (20) because it was done very medium (ie: too rare for my liking). I liked the steak cut fries with the wasabi mayo dip. Plus the presentation looked pretty darn fine =)

Nice place to try out if you’re in town and want some old school charm – the outdoor seating is in a covered courtyard. Beautiful when the weather isn’t sweltering. But be warned – many restaurants along that stretch will be vying for your attention!

    At times a dog trainer must reprimand their canine. Consequence does not get rid of the behavior the coach wishes to deter, even though it only suppresses it. Canny trainers understand that punishing a pet dog only encourages them to conceal the behavior in which they can be being punished. It is advisable to entirely substitute an unwelcome conduct rather than discipline a pet for participating in it.

    Increase memory space with mnemonics. Utilize an acronym to consider listings of connected stuff. For example, ‘Homes’ is used to consider the names of the Wonderful Ponds: Huron, Ontario, Michigan, Erie and Exceptional. The first message in the words and phrases in the sentence can signify a long list of characters that you need to bear in mind. As an example, “Each great son does great” may be used to commit to memory the notes about the facial lines of a treble clef: E,G,B,D and F.
