Does travel make you more creative? More compassionate?Yes, if you travel with those intentions.
June and Ed were such wonderful hosts and wanted to make sure we got a good "taste" of Singapore. I don't even remember all the dishes. I should have taken notes. But there was so much deliciousness!
After an afternoon exploring the Gardens by the Bay, June wanted us to try food at a hawker center nearby. This is not quite what I thought a hawker center would be, very civilized, with hawkers trying to get you to buy from them. We had a variety of dishes, I had to try the chicken rice. June brought us two types of shave ice desserts.
On Sunday, we met for dim sum at a Chinese place on Orchard Road, Crystal Jade, located in a nice shopping center. So many food dishes, but only these pics. Mango sago dessert on the left and Tang Yuan (black sesame mochi balls in a ginger soup) That was sooo good!
On the list of must try foods is the chili crab. They took us to Long Beach Restaurant, located on the East Coast of Singapore, with a view of their famous harbor. The sign says they are the originator of the black pepper crab. We had both the chili crab and the black pepper. Which did I like better? I think it was the chili crab, but both were very good.
I have traveled quite a bit, and am using this page to record some memories. Travel is a wonderful education, expanding your view of the world, of other cultures, of the beauty of diversity.
