My Son's Enlistment Day

Well, it's finally here for my son, NS (National Service) is something that every male Singaporean must go through once they turn 18.  He will serve for 2 years.

I feel disappointed that I could not be there with him on his enlistment day.  Parents and relatives are allowed to accompany enlistees on the first day.

But we are blessed with fantastic relatives, and I want to thank my Father-In-Law, Mother-In-Law, Sisters-In-Law and Brother-In-Law for taking care of my son making sure that he settled in comfortably in Singapore and accompanying him to Tekong.

They meet at Pasir Ris MRT station and are shuttled to Changi for a ferry ride to Palau Tekong where the BMTC (Basic Military Training Camp) is located.

A small island of about 24Sq.Km off the north-east part of Singapore.

I'm hoping to be back for his Passing Out Parade this July 14, and celebrate with him his successful start to his new phase in his adult life.

Hungry for Hawker Food!

Happy New Year everyone! My first post of the year, might as well be a post about food!

Just hungry for some good old hawker type food from Singapore. Found a website called Rasa Malaysia, there are full of recipes there.

Was looking to make Chwee Kueh, but stumbled upon the Chai Tow Kway and Fried Egg with Preserved Turnip.

I'll have to find the Preserved Turnip from the Asian supermarket over here first.

Anyway, here is a link to the site - Rasa Malaysia

Ondeh Ondeh!

So, feeling nostalgic, so I'll be making Ondeh Ondeh either tonight or tomorrow.

Bought all the ingredients, except for Gula Melaka, so I'll substitute it with dark brown sugar. Also, I'm using Pandan leaves extract instead of the leaves.

Anyway, was watching this video from a Singapore family preparing Ondeh Ondeh for Mother's Day at Salvation Army.
