Hello, history! After my incredible lunch at Cadlenut, a delicious Peranakan restaurant, it was about time I delved more into the cultural history of #Singapore , in particular Peranakan (Straits Chinese) and the place to go is the @peranakanmuseum, a former school and now incredible journey of culture, color and craft. By the way, every new mother should have a confinement cook #singapore

@candlenutsg with my favorite people for my first lunch in #Singapore in ages and it couldn't have encapsulated the vibe of this country any better. Innovative, clever, light and relaxed Peranakan ( Straits-Chinese) cuisine by Chef Malcolm Lee. Every dish has an incredible story that shares Peranakan history including my dessert which was made from Buah Kemal, a nut that is buried in ash for no less than 40 days and bathed in water for another 7 days to remove the ill effects of cyanide meanwhile the nut created unique family recipes passed down through generations. And of course I took photos so check out my IG story ...

Singapore. I stopped over to visit friends and had only two requests: food and street art. Nancy knows best and to me to Everton street to where artist @yipyewchong has a series of murals that #Singapore's stories and cultural history in yesteryear scenes and objects as simple as a streetside barbershop and Good Morning towels. Make sure to click to Yip's profile to see the full tales....

#Bangkok is all about street food, all the time. But honestly, how would I know what's what? Thanks Kob from @smilingalbino for navigating me around the side streets to river shrimp, bamboo worms, banana flowers, vegetable soup, fish balloons and more....see what I ate right now on my IG story #thailand

Time for more exploring.... 🛫
