Wow, I can't believe you tried so many different foods in a day, everything looks amazing especially the Sri Lankan crabs.
May your food adventures in Singapore get even better with every day!


great stuff! but actually after lunar new year is a bad time to eat out. food generally taste bad as most of the ingredients are frozen because the restaurants stock up due to the fact that the shops are closed.


I'm crying right now..!!! Reid.. !! you are eating all the food i love.. and miss so much..!!! How was the laksa .. anyway..???


Yum. The smorgasboard of desserts certainly got my attention! :P

I agree with FatManSeoul--did you weigh yourself before you left? And I'm sure you're eating it all just for our voyeuristic pleasure!

Are you seeing much of Singapore apart from the insides of restaurants? :P Not that we don't appreciate it. You are out-eating AugustusGloop!


Never read this blog when it's 2:00 am in the morning and all the restaurants are closed....


Reid, I know there's lots of great food here in SG, but do take some time to go enjoy the sights! :) Maybe you should quit your day job and become a gourmet food tour operator here; you're more passionate about the food here than some locals.


Reid - re the pulut inti - cmon you have to tell me what it is? tastes like? It looks really funky!

After seeing all that food, i don't think I need to eat breakfast today!


pulut inti is made from steamed glutinous rice mixed wid coconut cream and topped wid grated coconut cooked in palm sugar. its absolutely yummy!


That pulut inti...does it always come in that colour? And I miss lemper udang! It's my favourite malay kuih. I remember we used to have this for morning snacks in kindy! yum~


Hi Kathy,

I made a list of all the foods that I wanted to try before coming here. Can you believe that I'm not even through a fourth of it? The Sri Lankan crabs were huge and so yummy! I'm really going to have to learn how to cook chilli crab when I get back.

Hi toru,

Thanks for dropping by my blog.

The food is actually still quite nice. From what I've been told, most shops now only stay closed for the first couple of days after the first day of the Lunar New Year. I didn't experience any problems with the food not being fresh.

Hi MrsT,

The laksa was actually quite nice. It was really spicy, which I liked. I've been told that I need to go to Katong or Penang for the laksa. Hopefully I can make it.

Hi AG,

Yes. I actually did weigh myself first. =) And yes, I am seeing other things other than the insides of the hawker centers, food courts and restaurants. Those places are all along the way! =P


Unfortunately for me, I never made it to any of the late night hawker centers like Newton.

Hi Julia,

I'd love to become a gourmet tour operator, but then that would mean that I'd have to relocate to Singapore. I think I'd have a hard time gaining permanent residency for that type of job. It would be wonderful wouldn't it? I'd love to see the look on someone's face when they've had something that was utterly wonderful.

Hi Sam,

The pulut inti is quite funky looking isn't it? It's just glutinous rice that has a bit of coconut flavor to it. The color comes from some sort of flower, or so I've been told. The brown portion on top, is grated coconut that's been seasoned with gula melaka (palm sugar).

Hi babe_kl,

I have to agree. It was my favorite! I had it almost every day.

Hi pinkcocoa,

I honestly think that the pulut inti is normally white and brown in color. I think Bengawan Solo uses blue coloring to make it look nice. =) The lemper udang was nice too.

    Most of the newer photos on this site are being taken by this camera. I'm still learning how to use it, but I think the photos it takes are amazing. Though the lens I use often varies, many of the photos on this site are taken with a Canon EF 35mm f2.0 lens.

    A majority of the photos on this site were shot using this little camera. It was compact and discreet -- excellent for taking photos under most conditions. Sadly, it has recently died.
