It has been a while since i have been to Asia last time. So after nearly four years, we had several reasons to go there again: Ina and Imrans wedding, meeting Fuzz and Michelle, meeting Eva and going on holiday. Our first destination was Singapore – a place i visited for the third time and i really have to say: go there if you have the chance!
Pit stop in Dubai
Arrived in Kuala Lumpur late at night. They have huge lobsters and definitely no lard.
Let the food games begin
Martin and his ride
I went for the supernice option from Kuala Lumpur to Singapore
On our way to Singapore, we stopped at a place with funky stuff.
Next day: Singapore. First stop after meeting Eva was a hawker center. Martin had Tulong Merah. Yes, the straw is for sucking out the bone marrow.
Eva and me decided to have indian food at Gokul Vegetarian Restaurant. I had paper masala Dosa and Air Bandung. This thing was huuuuge and filled with potatoes!
And then we had a little snack afterwards.
Those two also seemed interested in food.
Next day it was time for Inas and Imrans wedding!
Oh look who’s here! Michelle, Fuzz and Eva!

In between there was lots and lots of food (the green thing is called putri salat)
Still life with big pot.
This drink is called Yuan Yang and it is actually a mixture of coffee and tea. Tasty!
Hangin out in Kampong Glam
Gundam (how does this look like a unicorn?)
Hello, we are in Asia after all!
Weird findings: black coated peanuts
They actually are black and taste like charcoal.

Another day, another hawker stall. This is a mix of Popiah, Kueh Pie Ti and Chuwee Kway. All vegetarian, all very tasty!
Dragon Fruit! And believe it or not: it actually tastes like something!
Besides eating, you can shop a lot. Orchard Road, here we come!
This funny looking thing is called Ice Kachang with fresh Mango. It reminds me of Halo Halo.
Matcha-Man to the rescue!
All this matcha makes trees pretty big.
Next evening we met up with the newlyweds before they headed to Sicily for honeymooning.
Ina got some nice henna left from the big day
Eva, Martin and me hanging out close to the place with the cheapest beer.
Cheap beer makes you do things.
Next day we checked out the Tiong Bahru area.
But remember: always stay hydrated. One of my absolute favorites: Teh Tarik in a bag from Kandahar street.
This is vegetarian Bee Hon at Tiong Bahru Hawker Center. Lots of greasy stuff!.
At Books Actually, a very nice shop. Cat included.
In the back: Kaya Toast with salted butter.
I didn’t eat that.
More walking around in the heat with some colorful stairs.
After some Gado Gado we met at Colonial Cafe to enjoy Bostock (soo good!) and Lamingtons.
And tea, obviously.
That tree had its way it seems.
Take care in front of the Peranakan museum!
This is made entirely of pearls.
Oh hello you, creepy dude.
At Emerald Hills you can find pretty looking houses.
Gokul Vegetarian again. This time i had Dosai Ghee. Sooo good!

Fruits i don’t know the name for
The lights of Chinatown
On the last night we went up on the Marina Bay Sands Hotel to have a last view on the city. Photo (c) woudmedia
It looked pretty Sci-Fi.
