Today, I went for the Makan session organized by Nuffnang and SMRT (http://www.nuffnang.com.sg/smrt-makan-session/) with Dr Leslie Tay, owner of the food blog - I eat I shoot I post (http://ieatishootipost.sg/)

We met at Farrer Park MRT at 1:45pm. After that, we walked to Westlake Restaurant - 西湖小吃 (http://www.westlake.com.sg/) for lunch.

Dr Tay was teaching us how to use his latest app. He came up with it. See here for more info: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/ieat-hawker/id471209087?ls=1&mt=8

The interior. Quite 复古.

The food arrives in a short while.

Nice food! Yum yum =) The popiah and the soup are very suitable for those who like spicy stuff.

Yam... (sorry, don't really know what this is called =.=)

Is this photo nice? Dr Tay taught us how to take nice photos of food. Take it from the top vertically.

By the way, I have won Dr Tay's book - The End of Char Kway Teow and Other Hawker Mysteries. You can find many things about food in the book. It also has Dr Tay's recommendation on where to get fantastic hawker food in Singapore. It would be suitable if you have foreign friends who love eating/food. Can bring them around to try the stalls in the book or give them the book as a souvenir. After all, Singapore is well-known for being a food paradise. Those who are interested can purchase a copy from Popular. Think it's about $28 (not sure) but there is a 20% discount for this book at Popular until 30 Nov 2011.

I got the autographed copy =)

Somebody won the Churp Churp (correct spelling?) bird. So cute can!

Sharin and Me. SMRT also kindly gave each of us a goodie bag. 

There is a cute mini-colour pencil set inside the goodie bag. Kawaii neh =)

The makan session ended at about 4pm plus. We took another group photo outside the restaurant before we left (need to wait for Nuffnang to upload it online before I can post it here). It was a fun session. Dr Leslie is such a nice and 亲切 guy.
