Breakfast in Singapore

July 31, 2013

Well, I’ve left Australia again! This week I am in Singapore. 2013 appears to be the year of travel. The past four years seem to be all about travel, really. But this time it’s for work, for my husband’s business. I’ve joined for the last part of his month-long Singapore jaunt, and next week we’re off to Hong Kong to do some more research and visit family.

This is my first visit to Singapore and I must say, I am very impressed. In contrast to the cluttered calamity of Hong Kong, Singapore is quite spacious and calm and easy. It reminds me of being in Thailand at Baan Dada – something about the thick, warm air, the buildings and the greenery. And the familiar smell of the pavement, right after an afternoon downpour. Yes.

Let’s talk breakfast!

It should be all egg and/or rice and/or kaya toast and Kopi-C (coffee with evaporated milk and sugar), right? Don’t worry, I did that on my first day when I played tourist and was let loose in a shopping mall. Oh boy. But today, it’s granola and yoghurt. I brought Ben a stash of homemade granola – it’s still pleasantly crunchy and fresh, despite being two weeks old. We ate our morning meal at home before scooting off to the office.

    I just love Singapore, you lucky thing you!
    This morning for breakfast I had a cold hard boiled egg and a fruit free gf muslie bar and a cup of hot water with a lemon wedge. Not as interesting as your granola, or kaya toast 🙁

      Oh but how good are boiled eggs for breakfast?! x

    Whee, you’re getting around a lot! What kind of research is Ben doing?

    The breakfast looks very lovely! And funnily, it’s very similar to what my husband Peter likes to eat for breakfast. I also make granola for him (and the current one has cranberries, too), and he likes it much better than the store-bought. 🙂

    I hope you enjoy your time!

      How lovely, sounds delicious! He’s looking at online tuition for high school kids. Busy but fun! x

    Haha, what did I have for breakfast today? Granola with greek yoghurt, milk and strawberries. I normally eat Cheerios or Sultana bran but I pushed the boat out slightly 😉 Love that photo of the bowl with the high rise apartments. Impressive! xx

      happy to be of service x

    My breakfast looked similar: greek yogurt sweetened with stevia and vanilla, topped with pinot-noir soaked cherries, ground flax, and a small handful of breakfast cereal.
    Love your photos.

      thank you! those cherries sound divine x

    Special K at my work desk, it was the easy option. I love granola but I haven’t been making my own lately because I’m eating my new found discovery: http://farmerjo.com.au/collections/muesli/products/twice-baked-honey-granola-with-pistachio-quinoa

    I’m wondering, what do you and Ben do work wise overseas?

    • Heidi August 3, 2013 at 11:16 am

      Nice, thanks for sharing! That granola looks gorgeous. My husband and I are working on his online tuition business! x

  • Hannah August 3, 2013 at 11:53 am

    I’m planning on making granola for someone (you know who) soon. Heavy postage costs be damned?

    I’d like yours myself, though. xo
