Singapore 1: A Food Special

Singapore 1: A Food Special

Singapore, "the Lion City," is the world's busiest port and a fast moving, modern metropolis, which consists of the diamond-shaped Singapore Island and about 60 little islets. The capital, Singapore City, covers the entire island. Singapore is made up of an exotic blend of people from all corners of the globe and this diversity is well represented in the endless variety of foods; it truly is a gourmet's paradise. Host Sian Richards and her friend, Augustar, begin their day with breakfast, enjoying the famous Kaya (richness) toast. Chef Vivien spices things up with some traditional Peranakan fair, Sambal Udang (spicy prawns). Also Sian samples Dr. Hoo's vegetarian dishes that look and taste like meat. She and her guide, Mohammed, take a cable car to the summit of Mount Faber to get a panoramic view of the harbor, the city and all of the surrounding islands. Then she sees the neon lights at the Lau Pasat Market, a popular gathering place for family and friends. 07/09DE JSCA 30 min.
