lot10hutong Wong Kim Lian migrated from Fujian, China in the 1920s, bringing the skills of #Fujian noodle-making. This noodle is a tradition in Fujian, made to celebrate auspicious occasions, and was eaten with soup. Wong Kim Lian started off selling freshly made noodle in #KualaLumpur in the 1920s. In 1927, he created a charcoal-fried noodle with dark soya sauce - an innovation! One day, a regular customer asked him what is the name of this dish of tasty noodle? He pondered and thought since 'I am a #Hokkien, I will call it "HOKKIEN MEE" '. As they said, the rest is history. 2d

sg_art_life Until 21 February 2015 “IMPRINT” New Works by Suzann Victor at @stpi_gallery (41Robertson Quay, Singapore, 238236) “I’m thinking about identity whilst living in Australia, I’ve increasingly felt, on returning over the years – I could feel the changing physical and human landscape so to speak. So much so it is no longer a banter in hokkien like “Hi Auntie, Teh-C-O or Teh-C-Ping” in the kopitiam. All that familiarity to do with a “Singaporeanness” that is tied to the colloquial seems to have been gone… These images are actually very Singaporean…” - Suzann Victor #

Look at Suzann’s nostalgia-infused artworks and think for a while what it means to you to be Singaporean?

epigrambooks Tears in our soup as we bid ‪#farewell‬ to our food and recipe book editor Samantha Lee @samanthaleewq! Her dining choice? The so-hip-it-hurts #NewUbinSeafood. Check out the completely impractical suede parka we gifted her, so she can be a flasher as she furthers her studies overseas. ‪#byesam‬

Sam edited Chef #BjornShen’s @artichoke_sg: Recipes & Stories from Singapore’s Most ‪#Rebellious‬ Kitchen and #Onaka at ARC’s ONAKA: Vibrant Recipes from a ‪#Wholesome‬ Restaurant—two scrumptious food books that couldn’t be more different—and co-authored UNCLE ANTHONY’s ‪#HOKKIEN‬ RECIPES with her own uncle! Help us say thanks to her with a full mouth.
