Back to SGH Again...

Wantan
Softly ethereal, as life, these wantans afloat in soup.

Roast pork noodles
Roast pork noodles of little solace.

Nasi Padang
Hearty Nasi Padang fails to fill the soul.

Curry yong tau foo
Salty curry surprisingly good.

Ice Kachang
Sweetened snow calms the mind's frazzled furrows.

The SGH Kopitiam food court has gotten a facelift
Well, pardon the photos taken hastily with the Sony C905. I wasn't expecting (or rather was hoping not to) see the insides of Singapore General Hospital (SGH) so soon. Mother-in-law has been warded again, likely for pneumonia. I really should have forbidden her to go to that funeral mass where she caught this bug. I had such a strong feeling something bad would happen. Oh well.

The wards are full of people spending Chinese New Year in the hospital - both patients and their families. Viruses, bacteria, accidents and disease know no holidays.

I'll say the SGH Kopitiam foodcourt looks pretty good now. Nice facelift, and they've extended the air-conditioned areas. The Polar Puffs cafe nearby has also been replaced by Bengawan Solo. So many changes in just five months. But the food, well, is still just a tad better than hospital food served upstairs.

  6. Thank you everyone. Thankfully, MIL is home now, although still weak.

    Fen, you are so right - it is tiring to take care of young and old. Now I need someone to take care of me! lol

    Jackson, thanks for the chicken rice tip! I'm sure I'll be back at some point in time (hopefully not though).
