Food, glorious food

If there’s one thing Singaporeans are really good at, it has to be eating.

I don’t know if this is common amongst people from other countries (or perhaps it’s an Asian thing), but my friends and I tend to plan our vacations around food. We go to a new place, and the first thing we have to check out is all the host of wonderful food that’s available. I guess living in the gastronomical hodge-podge that is Singapore gives us the opportunity to sample a huge range of food from different cultures, which possibly makes us a lot more adventurous than some of our counterparts.

Whatever the reason, I find myself hunting down the good eating places in whichever part of the world I happen to be in, and I attribute it to the foodie in me that was nurtured from growing up in Singapore!

    Yeah seriously, eating is like our hobby. And we have a serious preoccupation with looking for the best XXX(insert name of dish here), so much so that it almost turns into some sort of personal Grail quest.

    I really think it’s a Singaporean thing opposed to an Asian thing. Every time I return to Singapore, our outings revolve around food too. Such is not the case in other countries (asian or not).
