Singapore Food Staples: Fish Head Curry

By admin

One of the ones I was not looking forward to on my Singapore Food Staples list was Fish Head Curry. I don’t deal well with seeing the once living creature on a plate. I have a very precise set of skills in disassociating live animals with dead meat. It’s how I survive. And now with…

Singapore from Marina Barrage

By admin

There’s a little place snuggled into a far corner of Gardens By The Bay where people go to find an elusive patch of grass and feel free. And fly kites. Marina Barrage makes Marina Bay. The water slowly lapping at the feet of downtown skyscrapers and the Merlion is a man-made reservoir created by the…

Singapore Food Staples: Kaya Toast

By admin

It’s probably up there with other Singapore food staples like Chili Pepper Crab. Kaya Toast. A simple yet unique little breakfast/brunch dish that can be found throughout the island. Killiney Kopitiam is a well established franchised eatery…place which was founded back in 1919 in its original building on Killiney Road. Hence…the name. Right? Nowadays Killiney…

Bite Size Review: Veganburg

By admin

You ever just step into a place and you’re immediately not happy? I’m not talking prisons here..merely restaurants. That was Veganburg for me. And not just because it served all vegan; I’ve been dabbling in that black art for a while now. The minute you step into Veganburg you lose all sense of hearing. There…

Singapore Food Staples: Wanton Mee

By admin

Wanton Mee. Me want. Wanton Mee is basically Dumpling Noodles. Wanton=Dumplings in Cantonese. Mee=Noodles in Hokkien. ∴ Wanton Mee= Dumpling Noodles. I waddled along to Parklane Zha Yun Tun Mee House to taste their Wanton Mee offering. Contrary to their naming, they are not in the Parklane Mall nearby (they used to be) but in the…

Singapore Food Staples: Tau Huay (Dou Hua 豆花) Beancurd

By admin

Consistency is key in every facet of life. People who drive cars need to consistently not crash. And food needs a consistency that your brain is suited to. So with an innocent western palate, tackling Tau Huay (beancurd) will be fighting the consistency from the start. Rochor Original Beancurd is one of the most popular…

Singapore Food Staples: Carrot Cake

By admin

No, you’re wrong. You just are. This is not the affable dessert that you have scoffed down at your grandmother’s on a pleasant Sunday afternoon. This is, in fact, a savoury omelette type concoction made primarily with diced up white radish, preserved radish, eggs, and garlic (or other seasoning). With a nice dollop of chili…

007 in Concert

By admin

Gooooollllldddfinngaaaahhhhhh… Bond. James Bond. The movies go hand in hand with the theme music. Maybe even, in some cases, the songs eclipse the actual movie. Oscar nominations and wins prove that point, actually! Thus and therefore we have concerts and performances centered purely on the classic Bond music over the past five decades and further…

Impressionist Exhibition in Singapore

By admin

Colours of Impressionism is currently running in the National Gallery Singapore until March 2018. It brings together over 60 Impressionist paintings from the Musée d’Orsay Paris with a few offerings before and after the main era of Impressionism. It was amazing to see so many Impressionist paintings in Asia as it’s rare that any French Impressionist…

Visitors to Singapore may not believe or realize that there are a number of high vantage points from where you can see the island apart from the top of Marina Bay Sands. And they don’t involve rubbing shoulders with the touristy hordes either. I’ve already shown you The [email protected] and the [email protected] has been on my…
