I'm Singapore-born, my husband is Australian-born & we now live in the US so I think Walt Disney was right when he promoted "It's a Small Small World".

For many years, in Singapore, the hardworking “hawkers” or food sellers have been taken for granted ~ but not any more. Finally they are recognized and appreciated. Is this a dying trade? I hope not.
Over the years (and I do mean decades!) I have seen changes beyond description of tools and appliances used in kitchens. From grandma’s days when she used charcoal in a clay stove and ground spice pastes with a granite mortar to today’s kitchens with gas & electric cooker-ovens and all kinds of food mixers/blenders, it’s like taking a slow walk through a time tunnel.
Do I have an electric oven cooker? Yes. Do I have electric food processors? Yes. It may seem absurd but I brought with me, over 12,000 miles, my precious stone age appliance knowing I will be needing it in the kitchen, no matter how up-to-date I bring my kitchen to.
It doesn’t come with a warranty and it never breaks down. It doesn’t need power to operate and it can be used for many, many more decades to come…
I kid you not, even the Flintstones will enjoy the aroma of spice blends coming out of this contraption. It certainly doesn’t involve rock(et) science. Yes, I did plan for the Future when moving to live in the US.
What I saw in Stillness and Half Light.
“A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words” ~ unknown
I wandered and wondered …
A state of mind, to me, is an elusive perception of thoughts, unspoken, unquestioned and unknown.
Vibrant are the colors of Little India in Singapore, especially during the Hindu Festival of Light ~ Diwali.
