And then you have your typical foods that range from Indian and Malay to Chinese. There are hawker stalls everywhere you turn and lots of opportunities to try different food and drinks. One of my favorites is a sugar cane drink, literally squeezed fresh from sugar cane.
These critters are alive and crawling around. Apparently they are boiled and you suck the snail portion out of the shell. As my friends explained it me, "It's quite tough to suck out the meat." Yeah, I bet!
We went out for dim sim and here is my friend Corinna eating her favorite dish - chicken feet. Not a lot of meat if I do say so myself.
This is actually a fruit. I think I'll add it to the list to try next trip. Looks like arthritis hands, if you ask me.
Walking around Chinatown shows the love of food most Singaporeans have. There are stalls and stalls of goodies eaten over Chinese New Year.
No trip would be complete without trying to local beers - here is Nissa with a couple Tiger beers in Chinatown.
My friend Won Feo came all the way from Malaysia (KL) to spend time with me - a 4 hour drive one way. Cheers Won Feo!!
Here is a hawker stall - I liked this place because the building was so pretty. And the food was great too, of course.
This is a typical spread - pretty good!
