My voice is almost gone....

Weird thing is, it doesn't hurt at all. But I sound like a frog.

And I wish I knew the reason. Okay maybe I do. And it has got nothing to do with the hot pot I'm going to rave about right now.

For those of you who have been wondering where in the world did I go... not updating this lil food blog of mine for eons...

Well, it's okay because I'm back! Was so busy with my final exams and the YISS (Youth in the Spirit Seminar) that happened the day after my final paper. So it was really a mad rush.

Just came home a few hours ago and finally got to rest properly!

So, where was I? Ah my lost voice and hot pot. Yep. My voice is almost gone, but it's okay because it was worth it. Quite like how it's worth it, to burn my mouth when eating hot pot.

Just that both are a bit different. The reason for my voice being this way was probably because I was shouting too loud during praise & worship. Coupled with chocolates and belachan. That's a deadly combi!

The YISS was awesome and right now, I feel as though I've fallen in love with God all over again. You're probably wondering what all this has got to do with hot pot? haha well, I guess it is simply that hot pursuit.

The pursuit for something beyond what this world can offer. It's like when I eat chilli. I really love it, I get a kick out of it, but each time, I'm looking for the hottest option... I eat different chillies and sauces, wanting to find the hottest one...

And whether is it a hot pot or sambal belachan, it always warms me up. There'll be this warm tingling sensation that slowly settles in my tummy and it's so good that I just crave for more.

But before I go off tangent, allow me to give special mention to what must be the cheapest hot pot i've ever eaten. One that I might not eat so often anymore since I've graduated!

This Sichuan stall is so amazing. Located at NUS Arts Canteen, there's always a looooong queue. I like their food because it's spicy :) But the cool thing now is their hot pot. It's kind of new. They didn't use to have it. And my, it's really cheap! At only $5 you get this:

I tried eating the entire thing alone when I was so hungry. I managed to finish it but felt so full. So this time, I shared with my sis who followed me to school the other day when I went to study in the library...

Somehow it was just nice for the both of us. Check out the piping hot spicy soup. Mmmm it's heavenly I tell you! Pun fully intended. It's especially good to have during cold weather.. like now!

I guess I will miss the cheap NUS food! :)

I wish I knew how to get something like that here, even at 3x the price.
