Great Expectations: Luan Jie Cooked Food

 
Weekday breakfasts are underrated. For working individuals, it's usually a shot of espresso and maybe a bun at best. But if you're working near Amoy Food Centre (arguably one of the better hawker centres in Singapore), it would be silly of you not to treat yourself to a glorious hawker breakfast. I'm referring to the home of many mouthwatering delights that draw crowds like crazed bees to honey. My newest discovery at said food centre is Luan Jie Cooked Food, a stall that sells one of the best chee cheong fun, yam, and pumpkin kuehs I've ever tasted. 
 
Rarely do you see hand-made Chinese kuehs because they are time-consuming. A little effort really does go a long way and I am all the better for it. While the factory ones tend to be densely packed, their yam & pumpkin kueh glides apart with ease when you put a fork through it. Actual chunks of yam and pumpkin are lovely discoveries you make while chewing through a traditional favourite. I douse mine with plenty of chilli sauce and I cannot get enough of the fried shallot toppings. 
 
Although their chee cheong fun is not homemade, their sauces are, and boy do they make these silky smooth rice sheets sing. A lashing of sesame oil, sweet sauce, chilli sauce and a shake of sesame seeds might sound bland to some, but the marriage makes for a comforting sweet and savoury morning breakfast perfect with your $0.90 kopi (yes Amoy has the cheapest kopi you can find). The rolls do not stick together like many others I've tried and they're so good, I could have it everyday.

Letters to Singapore: The 5 Best Things About Singapore Day 2014, London

Being miles away from home in a foreign country can often make one extremely homesick and seek comfort in familiarity. For Singaporeans living abroad, this often translates to a plate of Char Kway Tiao, a cup of Teh-tarik, or even just being surrounded by people speaking Singlish! These are amongst the many factors that attracted some 9,000 Singaporeans, based in the United Kingdom and Europe, to London’s Singapore Day. It was heartening to see the huge turn out on that warm, sunny spring afternoon where, for a moment, it almost feels like it was Singapore instead of London. It was a difficult list of choices but here are the 5 best things about Singapore Day 2014, London!

#1 – The Kopi-O ‘da bao’ (take-away) goodie bags and awesome contents!

The conceptualisation of the Singapore Day goodie bag as a bag of Kopi-O ‘da bao’ as well as the freebies that came along with it were nothing short of amazing. There was a programme book in the form of an ‘old school’ exercise book, a foldable picnic mat resembling the typical Singapore monthly calendar as well thoughtful essentials – such as heat pack, umbrella, wet tissues and a bottle of water! As both the bag and the picnic mat are foldable, reusable and waterproof, they make perfect souvenirs for the special event. Moreover, the calendar on the picnic mat shows features March 2014, which a special emphasis on Singapore Day – allowing the mat to serve both a practical as well as a keepsake purpose! The goodie bag truly appealed to the ‘Singaporean’ in everyone by incorporating elements unique to Singapore – such as the ‘old school’ exercise book and calendar picnic mat – and factoring in practical uses for both the event itself as well as the future. Thumbs up for the awesome goodie bag!

Everyday Discoveries: Using Our Hands Slowly

There are many things that Singapore prides itself on – having almost every modern comfort one can think of at the convenience of our fingertips; stunning connectivity and tech-savvy lifestyles; and most certainly, the nation’s favourite big word: ‘efficiency’.

Such is the ethos of our nation that has given rise to a people who hardly know anything other than the imported, or mass-manufactured. This is a failing of our unabashedly modern lives – we are a nation of consumers, not makers.

And that is why it is refreshing to meet people who have been using their hands to make things happen. Established in 1949, Lam Thong has been specialising in the business of silkscreens for more than 60 years. Stripped of trendy artisanal references and well-heeled spaces, this is where the real action happens – gritty workstations, noisy heavy machinery, and forthright aunties who will impart you with a few tips of the trade if you have no idea where to start.

On A Side Note: Alone in the Cinema

I think I talk about watching movies alone quite often in different places. But I'd like to do it again today here on Monday Flying. For those of you in any other country but Thailand, I don't know how often you watch movie all by yourself. For me, I do that so often that Major Cineplex or SF Cinema City (huge movie theatre chain in Thailand) should give me a VIP alone-in-the-cinema card with privilege offers suitable for people who love to watch alone (and I'm sure I'm not the only one who would die to have such offer). But somehow, most of my friends don't do that so often. Some even hate going alone that they can skip the movie they like for the sake of thinking 'it's pathetic to go alone'.

C'mon, give me a break!

For me, I do that for years that I have become a person who can watch any genre of movies alone. I mean, I used to think I can't do a comedy all by myself because when there's something funny, laughing alone in a theatre would be so weird. Now I can laugh alone. Why not. Why do I have to limit my options of enjoying myself, right?
