Hor Fun!! Oh.. when will I see you again?
It's been quite a while since I relocated to Croatia. Of course, I get terribly homesick most of the time. My family and mates. The sights and the smell of home. But what I really missed about my homeland Singapore is all the FOOD!!! Yes! I mean it in CAPS! FOOD!
If you are a foodie and never been to Singapore, you are definitely missing out. We don't boast to have cultural heritage of making any of the world's famous cuisines: Chinese, Italian, French and Indian. But we have the widest range of food in a tiny island barely making 700 square kilometres.
Not only do we have every cuisine you can dream up of under one roof, we have our own cuisine that reflect the diverse and mixed heritage of most Singaporeans. Singapore food is a mixture of Chinese, Malay, Indian and Eurasian influences! Spicy is the key! Just like our hot hot weather!
Enough ranting about how much I miss Singapore food, I watch with dismay as my food supplies for making Singapore food dwindling in my kitchen. I really wish there's an Asian food centre or something close to it here in Croatia!!
All right.. I decided to treat myself today with Sambal Ikan Bilis (making my own Sambal) and Nasi Lemak tomorrow!! My mouth is watering with the thought!
Have you or are you in the same situation as me? Missing your home and the food? Do share..it makes missing home much better.
