In recent days, I’ve found that many people seem to be experiencing a deficit of joy. And much as I’d like this post to be purely about the delights of dining out (solo, and because I have to) during this otherwise pretty bleak situation, *ahem*, I’ll have to be honest. It’s usually more enjoyable to stay home but since there’s work to do today, I had lunch at Han’s in Waterway Point. The Frasers Experience app, which I have been using to collect points based on my FairPrice purchases (above $10) each time, has accrued sufficient points to allow me to redeem for evouchers at various outlets in Waterway Point (and islandwide). So I spent some on Han’s vouchers – 30 points for a $10 evoucher. And my set ‘lunch’ today cost me just $1.80 after the discount. I ordered their (All Day) Breakfast Pancake Burger Set ($11.80) with orange juice.
One of the ‘chefs’ was a little less-than-friendly. He asked me why I was hovering near the Collection counter. Well, ‘cos my queue number is 1102 and 1101 has collected his food. So I’m next. Since there wasn’t anyone after me. Duh. Anyway, after the encounter, I went to my seat, only to have to get back up moments later. After that, the ladies at the table behind me were commenting about how staff are so rude, taking such little care when pouring the hot drinks into the mugs, such that they overflowed. And their drinks were too diluted, it seems.
In any case, I’m quite impressed with the extensive menu at Han’s Waterway Point. Don’t join the queue, alright, till you’ve figured out exactly what you want to order. I think I might get the $9.80 Fish & Chips Set Meal (with soup and coffee/tea/OJ/Iced Lemon Tea next time).
I do think their drinks are a little pricey. Iced drinks cost a minimum of $2.40 unless you are opting for cold water at 30 cents.
Two other places I’d considered dining at were Rong Hua Bak Kut Teh and the Lao Huo Tang place.
$8.90++ for Regular Pork Ribs with Rice and 1 side dish, together with a drink (Iced Lemon Tea/Barley/Lime Juice) *ONLY FOR DINE-IN, Mondays to Thursdays (non-PH)
And I like the Free Membership at CocoCane. After you’ve signed up and registered using your mobile number, you get $2 in evouchers ($1 x 2) and an evoucher for a free topping.
I spent them today on a large Vita C Boost. And I requested for a honey lime jelly topping. Truth be told, the drink tastes rather watered down (not too sweet, so some may actually like it) and the coconut pulp is not my favorite. However, I’m grateful for the discount, and the honey lime jelly’s pretty nice!
And here’s another promo that’s really tempting:
If you’re heading to Waterway Point, I’d recommend popping by in the afternoon, if you can. That way, you won’t have to queue up to enter the mall. The wait can be pretty long.
