I am completely and utterly aware that this post goes against all the granola recipes in my recipe index. However, it had to be done. It had to.
I know that you kind readers are probably having that 'SHAME' moment. Yes, I am completely aware that I can (and do) make my own granola at home - and better too. But some days, all you want to do is sit down in a nice nook with some granola without having to lift a finger. (And also not feel too bad about eating half a sheet worth of it.)
With great pride and NO shame, I'm presenting:
the complete no-nonsense list of places in Singapore with any form of oats - Granola / Muesli / Bircher Muesli.
This is what:
1. Hours spent surfing the net for menus with granola in Singapore - It was so much like doing my research paper on singaporean lit. There are nearly ZERO papers related out there.
2. The corresponding images (if there are any. Why can't people take more photos of their granola?!)
3. Hours spent travelling to cafes and bistros
4. Money spent on food. SO MUCH MONEY.
has accumulated into. Be thankful, folks, for I have come to save the day.
I've based this post mainly around the two criteria of portion-sizing as well as flavor / ingredients used. Of course, service, ambiance and value-for-money are also taken into consideration (as well as washroom facilities).
To be continued.
(Literally. I'm so on the hunt for more granola.)
So, the exams may be over, and I may have learnt some things, and that pumpkin season may be enveloping everyone in it's uniquely gutsy way - I seriously do NOT like de-gutting pumpkin- but my brains still do function, which is why I'm sharing some new thoughts of mine here. (as if that wasn't new)
I've been feeling pretty b̶o̶r̶e̶d̶ d̶e̶p̶r̶e̶s̶s̶e̶d̶ g̶l̶o̶o̶m̶y̶ 吃饱太空闲 (direct google translate: eat too idle) lately, even though I've got tons more to do, with a presentation waiting to be completed and buns rising in the oven right now. It must be my premature quarter-life crisis. I'm bemoaning the meaningless of results and s̶l̶a̶v̶i̶n̶g̶ ̶m̶y̶ ̶b̶u̶m̶ ̶o̶f̶f̶ ̶f̶o̶r̶ ̶t̶h̶e̶ ̶n̶e̶x̶t̶ ̶f̶e̶w̶ ̶d̶e̶c̶a̶d̶e̶s̶ getting a good job and scrimping and saving for the final years where I'm bedridden with arthritis and god-knows-what affliction. What fun.
As such, I've been on the hunt for things to fill my pockets of time with - more and more cooking, extensive reading marathons, yoga classes, more eating... More fun, more excitement, more more more. Nothing really seemed to help. Until someone suggested this brilliant solution to moi...
(Yes. The next thing to add to my ever expanding bucket list.)
Anyhoo, here's some things that I've been snickering at (or perhaps having a genuine laugh over) before Project world domination that I hope you'll benefit from more than I did:
Picture this - a diet of insufficient sleep and too much caffeine. Blisteringly hot nights which leave you sweaty and sticky. Having to stay up late to finish assignments thanks to activities meant to help us "build discipline". And the worst bit - having no appliances to cook with, and only a microwave and refrigerator on hand.
Hello July, and hello boarding.
Sometime ago, I was moaning on about this. Now, it's back, with too much sugar being thrown into the mix. I'm not kidding. Sugar-high is REAL. Anyhow, it's been an insane week, with so many things going on for me on top of the usual schoolwork. I'm just glad to be home for the weekend.
Anyhow, an update on my internet coming-and-goings : I've got an interview article published on Browse Knots - check it out here - which was so fun to do. Also, how are y'all liking the new design of the blog?
