Coachella is an annual music festival held at a desert city in California. 

Very delighted to be able to experience live music of Coachella online via Youtube. It has been a while since I attend a beach party. God I missed the energy, ambience and dance music!

Kelly Jie Seafood Restaurant

Coconut Pudding with theatrics that aptly put us on cloud 9

This restaurant has been around for years, it was formerly known as TPY Mellben. For a seafood restaurant, their price is reasonable. We paid about S$40 each pax; without having alcohol. 

Kelly Jie is famous for the crab dishes. Instead of the usual crab curry, we ordered the crab beehoon this round. The crab beehoon's milky broth was flavorful. The prawn paste chicken wings were juicy. The boneless 排骨王 and venison were very tender and the coconut pudding flew us to cloud 9!

I am thankful that we sat outdoor to enjoy dining under the stars, cool evening breeze and music from the singing basker nearby. My family and I had a wonderful bonding feasting outdoor for the first time in 2 years since Covid. Looking forward to more family dining time here!
