Dim Sum @ Thomson

Before I begin on my newfound Dim Sum haunt at Upper Thomson Road, let me show you my iPad case!
I’ve been looking around for the perfect iPad case after I bought my new toy but to no avail.
Then A and I decided, “Why not make it ourselves!”

So, here is our very own iPad case!

We started out with the doing paper mache for one full night!
And to make sure the surface is not too bumpy, we sticked cardboards onto the bumpy surfaces.
And picked a fabric we like from Chinatown!

We also pasted a piece of magnet on one of the sides.

We also bought iron on alphabets! Velvety ones. I love it!

The insides of the case was made with oil painting paper.

The black elastic band can also make sure the case is snug when closed.

And ironed on “P”! I know it’s crooked.
Make me very angry! Damn.

We are still looking for a black tape to paste on the spine to give it an old school notebook feel.
I love our one and only iPad case! πŸ™‚

A also brought me to this dim sum place at Upper Thomson Road.
According to her, this place has very high hits and ratings online so we decided to check it out!

The eating place is pretty old and run down.
But if you ask me, it does has its own charms.

They serve zichar and dim sum at this place. The menu is pretty extensive!
This time round, we only had enough space in our tummies for dim sum.
The dim sum counter is pretty old school and Hong Kong style with all the food laid out for you to pick.

One of the highly recommended item is the duck porridge from the zichar stall!

Here are some of the dishes we ordered.
I swear they taste better than it looks! :D”
*mouth-watering*

The prices are very affordable and reasonable too.
It can get pretty crowded during dinner times and this whole stretch of road got lots of other nice food too!
I’m so jealous of those people who stay around Thomson. *sulks*

After dinner, we moved on to Salted Caramel which is just a couple doors down.
A told me she wanted to bring me for some salted ice cream. Haha!
This place is pretty awesome!
They are pretty new and they had the balls to set up the store right next to Udders.
Can you imagine the confidence they have in their products? :p

[Thanks to readers Shirlynn and S, it was Udders who set up their shop next to theirs! Haha!]

We tried, and indeed, it was fantastic! They had more customers than Udders when we were there!

Other than ice cream, they serve other things like beverages and cakes too.

And my favourite, ICE CREAM!

The flavour I picked, Salted Caramel!

IMG_2965

The flavour is very unique, a little salty (but still sweet).
Normally caramel would be crazy sweet but this one is totally perfect!
You just need to add another 50 cents for an ice cream cone.

If you like their ice cream, you can do takeaways too!
Their takeaway packs are so cute!

Will be back to bring you more nice hideouts and interesting stuff!
Have a good week ahead friends πŸ™‚
