Singapore’s Top Ten Hawker Dishes:The UNESCO Hawker Food Trail!

These are not the kind of things a typical family doctor gets to do!

It is the end of yet another year of feasting and I am glad to have had your company on my gastronomic adventures. I can’t tell you how much you guys mean to me. It has been said of the blogging phenomenon that: “Never before have so many people with so little to say said […]
