today's horoscope for Libra - 22 Feb 2010

food for thought.
so what "star attraction" could we be today? hmm.... :)

today's daily reading for Libra sign (via igoogle subscription):

"You may appear less flexible than you actually are today, but anyone who judges you too quickly will surely miss the real deal. You are prepared to discuss your ideas and negotiate with others to bring them to fruition. What someone else might mistake for rigidity is just your determination to make a difference. You have your own agenda now; so don't waste your energy on playing a supporting role when you are the star attraction.

the yummy Portuguese...

.. egg tarts ;)

if i didn't tell you, you would never have guessed that i actually had some of the BEST Portuguese egg tarts from KFC! yes, you heard me right, K-F-C as in Kentucky Fried Chicken lol. well, i guess if they made chicken well, they probably couldn't go too wrong with eggs either.

when we were touring Beijing last december, Ann recommended that we try the KFC egg tarts there. we were skeptical at first, i mean.. who would think of travelling all the way to China and then dine at a western fast food chain? but guess what? the egg tarts were so popular, when we actually decided to walk into a KFC outlet to get some takeaways, they were sold out! wow..

we did eventually remember to try them in Shanghai towards the end of our trip, and it was definitely worth the mention! i wonder if it's also cuz the two of us were super duper famished by the time we're done shopping and had to skip lunch to rush back to the hotel to pick up our luggage, both of us each cleaned up two whole egg tarts in an instant and were somewhat regretting that we didn't get the half-dozen promotion instead.. hehe. crispy thin crust with caramalised, soft, smooth, creamy custard... yumm yumm yumm.. just the thought of that makes me wanna go grab some right away!

so the good news is.. now we don't have to catch a plane and fly hundreds of miles to try the egg tarts. these sweet little tarts have already made their way right here to KFC in Singapore! yay! i MUST go (beat the crowd) get a dozen or so very soon and share them with my family and colleagues. i hope they're as good as they were in China :D

S$1.30 each or S$7.50 for a box of 6, go try some today!

available only at selected locations.

still not convinced? check out some other reviews below:

thank you, Ann, for the "awakening"! *lol*

ps: i also heart the hong kong style mini flaky egg tarts from Crystal Jade Kitchen! totally droolicious! :9

remember "Western Bar"? :)

do you remember the old-school handheld Casio game - Western Bar? :) i certainly do! that was the "IT" game when i was in primary school!

i never had one of those, so i always had to try to get into the good books of those few classmates who had it, then wait patiently for others to finish their turn before i could lay my hands on it.

so you can imagine how thrilled i was to find an iPhone version of the same game on the app store! granted it's not free.. but for that priceless reminiscence and nostalgia (and the uncontrollable odd grin on my face when i played it), it's definitely worth the US$0.99 price tag! LOL.
i love that oh-so-familiar tune and sounds they put on the iPhone game too...
it's not as easy to manoeuver your way on the touch screen (round rubber buttons are still more fun!).. but for good ol' times, i can live with it :D

if you don't have the iPhone or iPod Touch, try the online remake of it - Drunken Sherriff instead.
