Ah Singapore. I think I have a love/hate relationship with it. After all, it’s where I spent my best childhood years, and my worst teenage ones. And despite my distaste for the humidity that poofs my hair into the worst version of a 70’s afro (blessed with sleek Asian hair, I was not) and the heat that makes me sweat like a criminal on trial, I do have a fondness for the people and the food – because you can find nothing like it in any other part of the world. So once in a while I visit. And when I do, it’s a whirlwind.
In Singapore, we celebrate everything with food. From birthdays, to festivals, to catch ups after a long time apart, you’re simply not spending quality time with each other unless you’re sharing a meal together.
So as you can imagine, there has been MASSIVE amounts of eating in this recent trip.
From crab, to offal, to seasonal fruit which smells so strong its guaranteed to knock your socks off from across the street, I think I’ve truly outdone my own gluttony on this trip. So what better way to celebrate it than to kick-off two weeks of Singapore specials – from guides on what to do, what to eat, and reviews of places you should visit but probably don’t know about, I’ll be sharing my favourites of this visit.
After all, we’re not spending quality time together till we’ve shared food. 😉
