Crescent and the Five Stars - A nation celebrates




It was Singapore's 48th Birthday yesterday!

There was no better way to celebrate our food-loving nation's Independence Day than with lots of good local food, lovely wine (not local! :D) and great companions.

And oh yes, everyone was in the national red and white.

Happy Birthday Singapore!






Did you say L-A-K-S-A?


My signature roast belly

Wife's famous baked crab dip

No... Not Popiah... Keep guessing...


Yes... Kueh Pie Tee

Okay Okay... Not exactly local dish... but still in red and white

National dish - Hainanese chicken rice

Mackerel fish Otah

Let the party begin!

Cupcake Singapura - Wife made the Star-shape white chocolate and "Red" fondant 

Which is your favourite Nonya Kueh?

Ice-cold 9 dot 5 to start the evening

The red and white Party! Oops... Someone in black shorts.

Cheers Singapore!

  3. Wahhhhhhh!!!! So patriotic! You even celebrate your National Day - mine, it would just pass by unnoticed, my bad!

    I keep in touch with the Singapore National Day songs every year. Not too fond of the one this year. My favourite is still "We are Singapore" - the original...and also Dick Lee's parody. LOL!!!

  4. Oooooo....all the lovely food! I love the top hats - pai tee! Have not made for a long time now. I'll just have that and the otah - hope yours nicer than 328 Katong laksa's (Wink! Wink!!)...and ooooo....nyonyas are my weakness, oops...the kuehs, I mean.

    Gosh...the serimuka looks sooo lemak - I like. Most that I've seen - like rubber/plastic unless we make our own or buy/special order from some selected places in Kuching, none here...:(

      We bought the Kuehs from a shop here - Bangawan Solo. You must have heard about this one before.

    1. Hi Zoe! No celebration in OZ? BTW, are you already a Australian or stlll keeping your Singapore passport?

      I love the le creuset too! I have another much bigger pot in cream colour and few other of their products. Their cast iron quality is second to none.
