TGIF - Happy Hour at Cuppage Center!

Even though I'm not gainfully employed, I still welcome the weekend with the same fervor. After all, it allows me to take a break from my to do list. Here's a snapshot from our happy hour at Cuppage Center from last Friday!

Hawker Fare - Pork Congee

Had delicious pork congee with egg for lunch. Congee had a very smooth texture... yum yum! Congee is more often referred to as "porridge" in Singapore.

Drink was refreshing sugar cane juice with a slice of lemon!

Location: Hawker Center near Clementi MRT

Coffee Shop Fare - Tissue Prata and Teh Tarik

Simple breakfast fare - Prata and Teh! Everyone knows about the regular and plain roti prata, but less people order the tissue prata. Tissue prata is light and fluffy, sugary on the inside, great for a snack or dessert!

Teh Tarik (Malay term) translated means "pulled tea". Teh Tarik can be a little sweet, especially to the Western palate, due to the condensed milk in the drink. "Pulling" or transferring the drink between 2 containers helps to create the bubbles/froth at the top of the drink. If you would like coffee, order "Kopi Tarik" instead!

Location: Al Azhar Restaurant, Cheong Chin Nam Road, opposite Beauty World
