Lunch at Adobo! and my New Pet (Marimo) from 112 Katong!!

Adobo is the name of a popular dish and cooking process in Philippine cuisine that involves meat or seafood marinated in a sauce of vinegar and garlic, browned in oil, and simmered in the marinade.

We were here at Ali Baba Eating House as I would like to try their cripsy roasted pork again.  However, I was slightly disappointed when they were still preparing this dish and wouldn't be ready so soon.  Hubby asked for their recommendation and ordered the Filipino Sausages.
I had stewed pork instead.  The sambal really can kill!  I only dipped a bit to the meat and my whole tongue went numb immediately.  No joke!  The meat itself was quite sweet in taste.
Lumpia Shanghai (Fried Eggrolls) - $0.50 each
Total cost for our lunch here was only $9.  Pocket-friendly!
After lunch, we proceeded to 112 Katong, the newly opened mall which is just across the road.

Bought something from the mall.... MARIMO!!!!  I got super excited when I saw them for sale in Singapore.  I thought I could only get them in Japan.  Hubby must be wondering how these 2 little furry balls could get me so darn excited.  Haha....
Cute right?
