A big congratulations to our Digital Marketing Manager, Belle on her recent engagement. The exciting news happened over the break whilst Belle and her partner, Bruno were on a cultural food expedition in Singapore.
“What you do in Singapore is eat. It's a really food-crazy culture, where all of this great food is available in a kind of hawker-stand environment.” - Anthony Bourdain. And eat is what they did! They ate at least 8-10 different dishes a day travelling between Hawker Food Centres all day, chasing the best of the best.
Singapore is the only country where Michelin Stars are given to Hawker (Street) Stalls and they were determined to try them all! Some of the highlight dishes were “sup tulang” a dish where you needed a straw to suck up the juicy marrow out of the bone, Michelin Star Hawker Chan’s BBQ pork/soy chicken and of course the Singaporean Chilli Crab.
Apart from the food in Singapore, they enjoyed the diverse blend of cultures. “A stroll in the city was like being transported from one country to another.” There were also amazing attractions such as the Cloud Garden at Gardens by the Bay, the famous Merlion statue and the kitchy Haji Lane. However, their favourite location was the Fort Canning Park where Bruno proposed and she said YES!
This trip will definitely be one she will remember forever!
