Singapore Sling: It’s Time We Moved On
If the old doesn’t go, the new won’t come, is the adage each Chinese New Year. And when you are about to nurse that next shot of tequila or Bacardi coke at your weekend party, think- what is your national poison and what’s so Singaporean about the Singapore Sling? Isn’t it time we conceived a new national tipple? Whilst the scarlet concoction may be familiar to the tourists, less than...MORE
Old Flavours and New Carriers

It is no longer surprising to come across funky creations such as the Ba Chor Mee sandwhich or a Nasi Lemak cupcake where food vehicles such as cup cakes, cheese cakes, ice-cream and even you tiao can now be found carrying or stuffed with a wide variety of local and distinct flavours. I remember the times when the presentation of the food was all that mattered; as long as the dish is...MORE

Also, you have to face more steamed or fried prawns, steamed or baked fish, bak kwa of various flavours, braised chicken, monkey nuts, pineapple tarts etc.. plus, just how much more mushroom, dried oyster and fatt choi...MORE
Gongsi Raya: How Our Non-Chinese Friends Celebrate Chinese New Year

With almost every shop draped in red and gold screaming  dong dong jiang  at maximum volume, I think it’s safe to say that a big chunk of our population is onto Chinese New Year fever.  Chinese New Year on our little red dot is almost like a nationwide holiday. But amidst all the dusting and eating, have you ever wondered our non-Chinese friends are up to during the long...MORE

The World Is Running Out Of Chocolates
While chocolates are not a big part of Chinese New Year (safe for those gold foil wrapped ones- and we know why many Chinese buy them which is not for the chocolates), we want to take this time off to distill a little concern regarding this chocolate affair of ours at large- there’s less of it left because we are consuming more than we make them.
