Travel Diaries: Breakfast in Bedok
Ready for a summer throwback? It's gotten to that point of the winter where the cold weather, constant rain, and short, gloomy days are taking a toll on our moods. So there's nothing to do but to look back at happier, warmer days when sunshine was a commonplace prediction on the forecast. It really makes me miss the summertime when I look back at pictures in which I was tanned, warm, and wearing only one layer of clothing.
When randomly browsing through my draft posts, I realized with some sadness that I had forgotten to post this Singapore post from way back in August. These photos were taken in Bedok near my aunt's condo, as well as the neighbouring hawker centre (outdoor food court) that we visited daily for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Just writing about the hawker centre makes me drool when thinking about the delicious and extremely cheap local food to be had in Singapore... The next time I will be visiting my birth country will be about a year after my wedding during which I will be conducting a sort of "wedding tour" to visit both relatives in Singapore and Hong Kong. Until then, I will have to sustain myself with old pictures of the amazing culinary fare.

The 'famous' hawker centre located about five minutes away from my aunt's place. Local Singaporeans pride themselves on knowing where famous food stalls are located around the country island-- such as the famous 'char kway teow' sold at this very centre.
My favourite dish: yong tau foo. This amazingly delicious dish was a daily choice of mine as it wasn't completely deep-fried, allowed you to select various food items depending on your preference, and involved noodles and soup (my favourite food combo of all time).
Milo made only as Singaporeans can make it. Mmmmmm.
A peek into how food stalls usually look-- or the only photo I managed to take of a stall that came out looking somewhat decent.
Since I won't be returning to Asia in the near future, I'll be happy to settle for summer returning to my hometown of Vancouver, British Columbia. I can't wait to experience once again bluer skies, regular sunshine, and longer days-- especially since last year I missed most of the summertime in Vancouver while travelling in Asia (summer only lasts for a maximum of four months if we're lucky).
Do you have any summertime memories that you wish you could relive?
