6 Aug 2009 – Food Glorious Food
Enough of thought provoking subjects! Have been and still continuing to enjoy the local cuisine here, so much that my body (history of ulcer and food poisoning) is now telling me to find a balance, especially with the hot chillies. The problem is that when you are used to those spices, food taste bland without them, but what a life if one cannot have some indulgence with good food & wines. My children’s father once told me that we in SIN live to eat while the Norwegians eat to live… he might have a point in this case!
Blogging and discussing about food (safe & neutral) is over saturated but would like to share a few (too many to list all) budget$$ favourites, bearing in mind that even the taste of food and art are personal and subjective. But many will agree that only on this red dot where all the scrumptious gastronomical varieties make SIN one of the world’s best eating paradise. STB=Tourist Board will be happy to read this! That must be why I put on weight when in SIN 🙂

Hey, I have always wanted to try Big Eater’s down the hill from my place. The salted egg crab dish is calling out to me now.
