Lao Ban Tauheuy
`°•.¸¸.•°` Monday, June 11, 2012 `°•.¸¸.•°`After making a purposeful yet futile trip down to Old Airport Road the other day just to buy Lao Ban taohuey, I finally tried it last night.

It was soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
Seriously, I felt like I was eating soybean flavored agar-agar, rather than eating tauhuey whose texture resembled that of agar-agar. There is a difference. Daddy used to prepare long gan with almond jelly for my family. I thought his version way surpass Lao Ban's creations.
Moreover, my stomach was rejecting laoban taohuey the entire night I couldn't get to sleep. ;(
So I guess that sums it all; My very first and last serving of Lao Ban.
I don't know why everyone else enjoys Lao Ban and hyped about it so much. But I think I shall stick back to my taohuey from my neighbourhood market. Cheap, good and authentic. Even Selegie tauhuey or Mr Bean's tauhuey taste so much better than Lao Ban. If I want to eat agar-agar, I would just go to any fruit stall and buy the real agar-agar.
In case you want to testify it yourself, here's the address.
Lao Ban Soya Bean
51 Old Airport Road,
#01-127 Old Airport Road Food Centre, Singapore
Take note that they open from 5.30pm onwards and is close on Monday. Or else be like me and waste a trip down.
Yesterday I spent my afternoon at Paragon's Starbucks, trying to do my assignments. Failed. While I found some power outlets for my laptop, the crowd that comes in is too massive. I can work in noisy environment, even when That CD Shop and iStudio were fighting fiercely in a who-can-play-the-loudest-music competition. But the stream of people got me pretty distracted. I still prefer Starbucks at level 1 Vivo City. Quiet, plays jazz music and not too cold like the one at Harbourfront Centre. Hahaha.
Ending with a cute picture of Miss Brown I took this morning. She's such a beau. =)
