Yum! Food!

The following photographs were taken by myself over the past two years or so, using two different cameras.

Spicy Beef Lung

The above photo was taken at a "halal food exposition" at Singapore Expo some time back. Spicy beef lungs aren't exactly my type of food, but they are popular with Malays here.

Seaweed Shaker

As you can see, the "Seaweed Shaker" packet here came from McDonald's. These were for orders of french fries. Customers received their fries with one packet of seaweed and a small paper bag to shake the fries and seaweed in. I collected a bunch of these packets for family back home (who've yet to receive them; bad JD). I have eaten seaweed before, primarily up in Korea. It tastes somewhat like paper.


The final photo is the most recent. The previous two photos were taken with a digital Panasonic point-and-shoot; this last photo was taken with a digital Nikon SLR, which Milady and I bought two-three weeks ago. After buying the camera, Milady, her brother and I walked over to a nearby Burger King while we waited for a computer to be built. This is the second photo I took with the camera, where I just pointed it at the wall in front of me, which had this huge photo wallpaper of a Whopper. I looked at the photo on the back of the camera body and said, "Wow!" I showed the picture to my bro-in-law and he said, "Wow!" :) It's a nice camera.

Obama 08 said...

Hi there!

I have been trolling the internet looking for american expatriates to contact regarding my interest in the Obama 08 campaign and I came across your blog. I am interested in arranging meetings, fundraising events, and similar activities for the campaign among the expatriate community in Singapore. The link to my group on the Obama site is

There is a certain critical mass of group members I need to hit before I can do much for the campaign. I am not sure what the critical mass might be but I am pretty sure it is something more than the one american resident (me) currently in my group!.

Anyway, I have no idea what your political leanings might be but my email to you is an effort to widen my net of american contacts in Singapore. If you can forward this message or link to my site that would be greatly appreciated but I will also understand if you decline to do this.

Irregardless I enjoyed browsing your blog this morning!
