When I was studying to be a trainee teacher at NIE, I stayed on campus for one semester. The sole purpose of this was to experience what is life on campus life. I roomed with one of my NIE classmates and both of us happen to be foodies. We spent most of our mornings eating Kaya toast for breakfast and enjoy a decent and affordable in the canteens around NTU. It’s a food haven here at NTU/ NIE campus. Below are some of the typical food which I would usually buy and order at the canteen. I missed those times!
We also explore the restaurants and other eateries at Jurong Point too.
Ambush@ Jurong Point
Since you only live once, settle for food that tastes fresh and good. Trash out the rest.
Ice-cream @ MacDonalds, Jurong Point
You can be really creative with food. Who says you can dip fried into ice-cream? The warm savoury fries go well with the sweet and icy cold vanilla soft-serve. It was Qian Ling who taught me how to eat it the ‘Singaporean’ way.
Canteen 13’s Korean Food Stall
You only have that many moments Where you could eat and live like Kings and Queens. So why hesitate?
Canteen 13’s Soya Beancurd
Less is more. Something simple like this can be exceptionally good. Experience what pure food really taste like.
Canteen 16’s Yong Tau Foo
7 Days a week 6 days of the greens 1 day of indulgence
Canteen 2’s Breakfast Toast Set
Going traditional and rustic Keeps your feet rooted to the ground. Don’t forget about where you come from.
Vegetarian Food @ NIE Canteen
I always have brown rice with vegetables at NIE canteen stall. I would also add heaps of sambal over my rice. The chilli helps to spice things up.
MacDonalds @ NIE
Pancakes have never tasted any better. Not that Macs
Home baked Treats from Classmates
Homebaked treats are the best messages to your heart. Nothing can be compared to these sweet treats which were made just for you. Even the flour and eggs were soaked with your name.
Cafe HotShot @ NIE Library
Food pairing is important. Because everything comes in pairs. Never go solo, or you’ll be lonely – coffee and scones, just like Oreo and milk. They will never break apart. Ever.
NTU Canteen A’s Breakfast Toast Set
Things sometimes aren’t perfect. Accept what you already have and live on. There are better eggs out there. Don’t give up.
KOI Bubble Milk Tea
Surprises. I love them.
I can’t live without bubbles appearing everywhere. They supply me with oxygen. Don’t suffocate yourself with more carbon dioxide.
Live well. Breathe well. Eat well.
It’s okay to swallow bubbles. Tummies bloat. But they deflate with treadmills.
A pocket full of sunshine like this makes my day.
Or you may end up munching up your life away.
Share everything you have. Fraction out your love. Food tastes much better when you are surrounded by loving souls.
