FMTSO: TREATS FROM MY TOWN

 Singapore is known as a food paradise, one can find all type of food everywhere! Whether local or overseas influence, we are exposed to them all.


 Chendol, the basic ingredients of cendol include coconut milk, green starched jelly noodles with pandan flavouring and palm sugar. Singaporeans are known for personalizing their eating experience, and with cendol, it’s no exception. Expect additional topping options such as grated ice, red beans, glutinous rice, grass jelly and creamed corn; making this yummy dessert just perfect for the sunny weather here in Singapore.

 Pineapple tarts refers to small, bite-size pastries filled with or topped with pineapple jam  The pastry consists of a large proportion of butter and egg yolk, besides using milk powder, giving it a rich, buttery, tender and melt-in-the-mouth texture. The pineapple jam is usually made by slowly reducing and caramelizing grated fresh pineapple that has been mixed with sugar and spices - usually cinnamon, star anise and cloves for hours..

 Considered a "festive cookie", pineapple tarts are usually consumed during Hari Raya, Chinese New Year , Deepavali and Christmas by guests.
 

 Every year, it's a must for me to bake the pineapple tarts for my guest during the Hari Raya visiting.

 Crabs with salted egg yolk, a very popular dish here, revered by local and tourists.


 Japanese pan fried Gyoza - easy to make and very filling.


 Cereal prawn- another famous dish here.

 Chocolate mouse cake and Oreo cheese cake.

Traditional  Malay steamed cake.



 Takoyaki balls, another Japanese snack so loved by the son that he learn to make them.

ABC Wednesday: ELEVATED




ELEVATED walkway in Cloud Forest Dome, Garden by the Bay Singapore.


The Cloud Forest  replicates the cool moist conditions found in tropical mountain regions between 1,000 metres (3,300 ft) and 3,000 metres (9,800 ft) above sea level, found in South-East Asia, Middle- and South America. It features a 42-metre (138 ft) "Cloud Mountain", accessible by an elevator, and visitors will be able to descend the mountain via a circular path where a 35-metre (115 ft) waterfall provides visitors with refreshing cool air.

The "cloud mountain" itself is an intricate structure completely clad in epiphytes such as orchids, ferns, peacock ferns, spike- and clubmosses, bromeliads and anthuriums. It consists of a number of levels, each with a different theme.
