Foodie Express

Being a vegetarian in Singapore is not an easy task if you must know. Not only is there a lack of places serving vegetarian food, even if we do find one, it will invariably be an Indian food stall. Now, I do not belong to that set of Indians who insist on eating only Indian food wherever they go. I have seen people pass comments like - Lets go to a place where we can eat a real lunch. Bah! If you ask me, we must try to eat as many varieties of food as possible. Infact, a visit to a place will not be complete without sampling the local cuisine.

Many of us chose to remain or turn into a vegetarian for various reasons. I happen to be one among such people. So, to make life a tad bit easier for people on the lookout for vegetarian food in Singapore and who don't want to stick to just Indian food, let me present to you a set of restaurants serving vegetarian fare among others in a series of posts spanning over a year.

A bunch of friends(Shub, Sash, Viv and Sumanth) and I, have decided to visit atleast two new restaurants every month. I will be reviewing each restaurant on my blog (accompanied with photos) and may also recommend a couple of drinks/dishes which have to be tried out at that particular restaurant. Needless to say, all the restaurants that I review will have a couple of vegetarian dishes. In the process, I hope to take you all on a veggies-guide-to-food-in-Singapore tour through my blog. All such posts will be tagged under 'Foodie Express' and can be viewed by selecting it under the "Tags" section.

Watch this space for reviews and our experiences at "Siem Reap 1" and "Blooies" this month.

Uh Oh!

So the other day, I was chatting with a Filipino colleague(FC) of mine who had just returned from a long holiday in Philippines.

PD - Hey! How was the trip back home?
FC - It was great! Had lots of fun.
PD -
Nice to know. You must cribbing to be back at work after the fabulous holiday.

FC - Yeah! Waiting eagerly for the Chinese New Year holidays.

PD -
Oh! Planning one more trip back home?

FC - Yeah!!! But not to Manila. This time I am going to a resort.

PD -
Cool!! Which one?

FC - Boracay. Its a beach resort.

PD -
Oh! I vaguely remember hearing about it.

FC - Ok.

PD -

FC - Yes!

PD -
I must plan a trip to Phillippines sometime. Looks like it also has its fair share of white sandy beaches.

FC - You should. It does have some great places.

PD -
So what all can you do at Boracay?

FC - The place has got a great nightlife. Bars, clubs, discos.

PD -
Oh! I see.

FC - But YOU can also spend your time reading over there.

What the..??!!! Is that what people think of me as? A geek. A GEEK! Oh dear lord!
