These are some of the pictures that I took while I was in Kukup last week with some of the friends from the painting class. They were taken in the morning at 5 – 6 am. The place was so serene at that moment in the morning. I took so many of them and have not gotten time to sort them out. Will post some of the better pictures soon. Enjoy!
We had long weekend holiday Last week. The Singapore national day fell on the ninth of August and coincidentally the day before was the muslim holiday. We have traveled to north Malaysia numerous time and always passed by Malacca but never visited. That was why I planned to go to Malacca with my family during this holiday.
Malacca is about 3 to 5 hours drive from Singapore depending on the traffic. Upon entering the city we were trapped in very heavy traffic jam. It took us about two hours to reach the city. It was a very disappointed trip that left us all wanted to go back immediately. Places are filled with people and cars. There was no way to go anywhere and no way to turn back either. Since it was already after two in the afternoon, we decided to just go to nyonya baba heritage site to grab something to eat before we headed home. To my horror, we found out that we had to stand in line for over 30 minutes under the hot sun just to buy food. It was really very unpleasant trip that I hope we would not experience it again. Below are some of the pictures I took while queueing. Have a nice weekend.
Have you ever visited Singapore? Or if you live here you know that we are famous for our food. Any kind of food can be found here, from the cheapest of hawker’s (kopitiam) food to the most expensive of five to six stars restaurants food. You name it, we probably have it. Food is everywhere in the island. We are practically being spoilt by the enormous variation of food here.
In particular, I love its local delight that many here call nyonya kueh. Bite-size snack or dessert which are mostly steamed and sweet savoury, and commonly found here in the region (Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore). It is so comforting to have familiar food from home easily accessible here. Especially because I am fond of having tea/coffee in the afternoon and these kueh are an inseparable combination with my cup of tea. It’s a blend of sweet and bitter in this perfect fusion. Being a favorite to my family, I would buy it frequently when I have the chance.
Here are some of kueh that we had several days ago. They are made of cassava, sweet potatoes, glutinous rice, corn, rice flour, coconut etc. They all taste sweet but each has its own distinctive flavor. If you ever come to this region, I highly recommend you to try out our local delights. But a word of caution, those kueh are very addictive. Happy Saturday!
