Visitor from Irvine, CA - 14 August 2014

Last night we had dinner together with our university friends, Ferryanto & Ningsih, who are staying at Irvine, CA.

We went to Xin Yuan Ji 新源记 (located at 31 Tan Quee Lan Street, opposite Bugis Junction) to try their famous fish soup. When we arrived around 7.15pm, there were long queue at the road side.. We have to wait about 30 min before we entered. If you come before 6pm, usually the queue not that long.

While waiting for the queue, Ningsih & I went to Bugis Village to take a look what its looks as she never been there. She managed to get FINE t-shirt for her 2 sons..

Before we entered into the restaurant, we already chose the foods that we would like to order. We just ordered: Slice fish (clear) soup, fried fish meat (milk) soup, fried beancurd with radish, and yam ring.
By the time we sat down, the foods & drinks were ready in 15 min despite the packed customers in the restaurant.

I enjoyed the fried beancurd with radish ..
