With Singapore’s 50th National Day coming up, everyone over here in Singapore is getting all excited about the upcoming SG50 National Day Parade, which has been practising hard over the last few weeks.
SG50 parties are popping up all over the place, and the Aged P decided to throw a small potluck party with some home cooked dishes given an SG50 twist!
The Aged P made the vegetable dish with white radish, wongbok cabbage and carrots boiled in a clear chicken broth with dried scallops and shiitake mushrooms. You can see she layered the vegetables with the white radish slices on top, then added a crescent moon and five stars carved from carrot.
Our good ole Uncle J-the-chef made one of his chinese-italian fusion pastas with ’50’ spelled out in cherry tomatoes and quail eggs dyed red.
We also had a Red food (Foochow noodle soup made with red yeast) and White drinks (Soya bean juice), but I think that a traditional Teh Tarik (made according to the instructions on my SG50 ‘funpack’) would be fun for a party too!
For people who are too far away to enjoy an SG50 party, you can still celebrate in your own way – you can check out the Owls Well SG50 Playlist or you can make just like A Becky Lee, who went to have a very special SG50 themed manicure!
