When Jean has the sudden urges for something, it takes more than one night to fully satisfy her desire. And the only place where you can satisfy her desire is at Geylang, land of the neon lights. You’ll find Hotel 81, Fragrance Hotel, and a whole chain of other smaller hotels at Geylang. But her urges cannot be settled at the hotel. She need more excitement than going hotel.
She has cravings for Soya Beancurd in the middle of the night. It’s Tou Hua, not Tou Fu hor.
Got a MSN message from Jean late Saturday night saying she feels like having Soya Beancurd. It’s like those pregnant women who for no reason have some sudden desire for food at some far corner of the world. And I knew that if a gal doesn’t get her cravings cured, all hell will break loose. So together with Ridz, we went on a mission to settle the lady’s craving in the middle of the night by bringing her to Geylang You Tiao Da Wang.
Only to discovered that the famous You Tiao Da Wang at Geylang Lor 9 is no longer there. I even drove round the place twice to confirm. We Couldn’t find it. Either they closed down or moved to a new location.
So we went over to Princep Street for Tou Hua. The Tou Hua is cheap and good. We managed to buy the last few bowl of Tou Hua, You Tiao and soya bean drink before they close for the day. It may not be as good as You Tiao Da Wang, but at least it can hold back Jean’s craving. The
The next day, I did some googling and discover that You Tiao Da Wang has moved to Geylang Lor 27A. No wonder we can’t find it that day.
So we went on another Tou Hua hunt last night after a session of bluff at Starbucks. This time round, we have Jean, Alice, Miccheng and Tian Hong. Ridz didn’t come because he wanted to sleep early. And the strangest thing is, his twitter message last night is almost the same as NTT’s. Take a look at these (Check out the timing of the twitter too):-
Hmmm…. How come they the same thing at almost the same time? Are they together? Oops…. Sorry, I digress.
It wasn’t hard to find Geylang Lor 27A. The road system at Geylang is very systematic. If you travel along Geylang Road, the left side will be all the even number Lor while the right side will be the odd number Lor. Odd number Lor is where you find all the good food while even number Lor is where you find all the *cough* action *cough*.
Oops… Sorry, I digress again.
The standard of the Tou Hua seems to drop a bit, but it is still better than most Tou Hua in Singapore. And like bloggers always do, we spend several minutes taking photo of the food before eating.
Oh well, at least I managed to satisfy Jean’s craving, after visiting Geylang with her 2 nights in a row. Let’s hope her next craving isn’t at some remote corner of Singapore.
