I was Here... Where Were You?

Just this week, I revisited the asian kitchen at marina square for a bowl of Vietnamese beef stick noodles.

And while waiting for the noodles, nothing beats having to indulge in the traditional Viet appetiser – the rice paper roll. Although the ingredients that usually make up the paper rolls are quite simple (rice noodles aka been hoon, cabbage, bean sprouts, carrots and prawns). The combination of them along with the special Viet sweet and spicy, usually made of fish sauce, vinegar and finely chopped chilli, simply bring out the best from the ordinary.

A normal bowl of beef noodles cost $7.90, but the braised beef adaptation will set you back $2.00 more. I personally prefer to go for the stick noodles aka mini kway teow but the outlet also offers rice noodles along with glass noodles.

Service is pretty standard but I did notice that the outlet kept repeating the same song over and over again throughout my 45 minutes there – Steven Curtis Chapman’s rendition of I Will Be Here - Thank goodness it was one of my favourite song.

- I really miss those days when we spend our time at the Viet restaurant eating your favourite beef noodles. Too bad we wouldn’t have the chance again! -

I Will Be Here(Steven Curtis Chapman)

Tomorrow morning if you wake up

and the sun does not appear

I will be here

If in the dark, we lose sight of love

Hold my hand, and have no fear

'Cause I will be here

I will be here

When you feel like being quiet

When you need to speak your mind

I will listen

And I will be here

When the laughter turns to cryin'

Through the winning, losing and trying

We'll be together

I will be here

Tomorrow morning, if you wake up

And the future is unclear

I will be here

Just as sure as seasons were made for change

Our lifetimes were made for these years

So I will be here

I will be here

And you can cry on my shoulder

When the mirror tells us we're older

I will hold you

And I will be here

To watch you grow in beauty

And tell you all the things you are to me

I will be here

I will be true to the promise I have made

To you and to the One who gave you to me

Tomorrow morning, if you wake up

And the sun does not appear

I will be here

Oh, I will be here.
