This blog was started once upon a time when a young girl at school didnt know better but thought otherwise. So the way earlier entries can be crass and words inappropriate so please don't judge. As now the person has evolved into someone older and wiser (hopefully) ..:.... But some of the entries were classic and hilarious so I don't have the heart to delete them :@ Well we were all young (read:wild) once, right?

Eating Guide in NUS

We all have to eat don't we?

The food in campus is within reach, cheaper and the canteen is a good place to do some networking (read: bio-ing, drooling and bitching).

*bio: oggle

These are some of the eateries that can be found in NUS.
Complete with their SillyCelly review of course.

1. Engineering Faculty Canteen:
Renamed as: The Techno Edge.

Food: Indian stall has great variety, plus yoghurt rice and lassi sometimes!

Patrons: Some engineers, PRC & Indian scholars, architects and Real Estate students.

Dress code:
Guys: T-shirts berms or FBT shorts. Heh. *ed: guys look totally gay in FBT shorts*
Girls: T-shirts and berms, to be noticed, wear skirt.

Bio-worthy: handsome butches, spectacled geekz, PRC Engineers and a staggering few cute male engineers who happen to be too lazy to walk to Arts Canteen that day.

2. Arts Canteen:

Renamed as: The Deck


Food: The Japanese food stall is a must visit. It's worth your every penny and friggin good stuff. Totemo Oishi NE!!!!The claypot stall also doesnt lack customers, and the auntie always gives you more change than you're supposed to get. Please be honest and give her back the excess. Like me.

Patrons: Pretty people, models, wannabes, the rebels, the hip Arts students and oddles of good looking engineers.

Dress Code:
-Guys: Designer labels, muscle T-shirts, Levis' Engineered Jeans, board shorts with singlets.

-Girls: Hippie-style, Tank-tops, tube tops, mid rifs, belt for a skirt, shorts too short to cover their pubes and many, many tattooes. Hair styles range from rebonded, to blonded, to skinheads to as crazy as possible.

3. Bizad Canteen:
Renamed as: The Terrace

Food: Western food here is good, there's BratWurst and cheese sausage but the uncle like got PMS sometimes.

Patrons: Bizad students, Law-lers, Hall residents.

Dress Code:
-Guys: Singlets, showy Commando T-shirts, FBT shorts, shorts, berms. Some in formal Shirts, pants.

-Girls: Levis' hipsters , tank tops (white, black), mini skirts and anything that doesnt cover much.

Bio-worthy: Classy babes in minimal clothing, with expensive handphones.

4. Munchie Monkey: At Yusof Ishak House

Food: Spageddies food at half the market price. Their Crayfish pasta dem worth it!

Patrons: Some cool people. Those with more $$$ to spare, those who want to watch Footie LIVE and those tai tai kind who can't stand non-aircon places.
Dress code: Casual to slack. Watch out for girls in skirts slumped in the low sofa. Always chao keng one.
bio-worthy: The big projector screen playing MTV or ESPN (on football nights).

5. Genki Sushi: Also at Yusof Ishak House

Food: Used to be good but now the softshell crabs like imported from Ethiopia.
Patrons: A spectrum of variety. A lot of angmoh exchange students.
Dress Code: Casual.
Bio-worthy: The circulating plates of sushi. Very very annoying, makes you over-eat each time.

6. Science Canteen: Renamed as Frontier

Patrons: Malaysian and PRC Science students. Quite a few sweet, docile chio bus. No hunk.

Dress Code:
-Guys: T-shirts (Hall T-shirts, Club T-shirts, Faculty T-shirts), shorts.
-Girls: Same as the boys. Plus some tank tops, Capris, Cheap 'fake' Tshirts with the slogans spelled wrongly, e.g CKNY, Adadis.

Bio-worthy: Sweet Malaysian girls. The Nissan 350Z parked outside the canteen everyday (My ex-master's by the way). Cleaning aunties.

7. McDonald's: Besides Engine Canteen

Yes yes!!! WE have Mc D in campus!!!! It's cheaper than outside too..
It also boasts LCD screen with nice tables.
Patrons: Thank God no screaming kids.

8. Fong Seng: Also known as 'Behind'

Food: Cheeze Plata is good, dinosaur is good, nasi lemak is good. When you're smashed, hungry and tired from clubbing, everything is good.

Patrons: Hall students, normally from Eusoff, Sheares and TH. Plus those who came back from chionging (3-5am on Thursday, Saturday and Sunday mornings). (KR Hall has their own internal fong seng)

Dress code:
Early nights: Super-super slack dress codes. Hall T-shirts encouraged.
Early mornings: Cheonging gears on noisy babes in drunken stuphor and smeared make-ups.

bio-worthy: Many crazy NUS students who are midnight-jogging, sweaty blokes and bouncing boobs included. They will pass Fong Seng one conferrmmmm..


My favourite eaterie is definitely Arts Canteen, for the hunks and the Jap food.

Ha Ha... too bad this didn't come out last year. I had my summer internship at Institute of Policy Studies. Didn't know where to eat. Sigh...

This year no point. No way I'm going to drive to ulu Kent Ridge (anything west of Chinatown is too west) to eat. Somemore must avoid my sis' friends at Arts Canteen. I think I've done enuff damage with them already (at least some of them anway, heh)

At 11:12 AM, Blogger Adrian gently snorted that...

Heheh, when I went to visit Feisty Bitch at Arts Canteen, I wore berms and t-shirt + slippers, along with my geeky glasses. Totally didn't fit in. But who cares what the arts fags think?

Your blog makes me fat.

It's evil.

The indomee made me hungry at 1030pm. After cutting your link to my pal, I lamented how I needed a dose of supper. I hesitated. I ordered pizzahut.

At 4am, it was food that I read again.

I wailed in misery.

I snuck into the kitchen and dug out famous amos, kit kats, time outs, kinders, and leftovers in the fridge.

Now, I think I need breakfast. *growl*

Your blog makes me fat.

At 1:41 PM, Blogger jllt gently snorted that...

The food beside the swimming pool used to be too oily. I had not went back since I grad more than 2 year ago. Maybe the standard has improved. Anyway, You blog made me want to go back there for a makan session. Maybe you can be my guide then.

At 11:39 PM, Blogger Muggs gently snorted that...

ad: err.. ok.. u rock and u suck?

At 3:51 AM, Blogger Hai~Ren gently snorted that...

Arts Canteen chai tau kuey stall also sells or luak (fried oyster). Not the best in Singapore, but it's quite good.

Arts western food also not bad, but I'm quite sian of it. Maybe because I've been eating it regularly for the past 2 years. I think the new stall at YIH canteen is better.

Speaking of which, you forgot to include the YIH canteen Central Square! Or the SRC one (Linger Cafe)

At 4:02 AM, Blogger Adrian gently snorted that...

Ok, wtf was I talking about. What I meant to say was, I swallow as well. You know, as in my blog not only sucks, it swallows as well. Ah, nevermind. I plead lack of sleep.

At 4:19 AM, Blogger jllt gently snorted that...

Teriyaki chix always too fat.

At 11:31 AM, Blogger crazycat gently snorted that...

At 2:27 PM, Blogger CELLE gently snorted that...

hairen: OHHHHHHHHH Or Luak! huhuhehuehe.. i tot wtf... yeah.. not bad.. but the oyster very stingy leh!

ad: ok u rock,u suck n swallow, as requested.

At 4:22 PM, Anonymous Snake gently snorted that...

At 6:10 PM, Anonymous Dank gently snorted that...

Linger Cafe (SRC, next to the pool) and NUS McDonald's is open on Sundays too.

At 6:47 PM, Blogger kaopeh gently snorted that...

The YIH genki sushi is probably the worst jap food restaurant anyone can ever come across. For all KR and Sheares ppl, the fong seng opened in KR is cheaper than behind.

At 8:54 PM, Blogger CELLE gently snorted that...

snake: Celly cannot be makan-ed

dank: oh yeah those too!

kaopeh: is it? aww..

At 9:47 PM, Blogger Adrian gently snorted that...

What about setting up a Deli and calling it Makan Celly's Deli?

At 10:25 PM, Blogger CELLE gently snorted that...
