Sauces and Spices make Singapore

 While Singapore is a very diversified country with expats from all over the world, the 3 predominant groups found in Singapore are Chinese, Malays, and Indians. However, the Singaporean identity is very strong; thus the locals all refer to themselves as Singaporeans, rather than I am Chinese, or I am Malay. That is one of the very appealing things about Singapore that I like, the ability of the government to build a very strong identity for its country and that its citizens proudly embrace the Singaporean identity.

I always believe that you could learn a lot about a particular culture base on the variety of foods that are available; located in Southeast Asia, Singapore serves up a host of delicious foods that are found in many Southeast Asian countries such as Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, Vietnam, etc. What makes all street foods I have eaten over the weekend so delicious is the use of rich and flavorful spices in all the dishes; the sauces and spices take centre-stage in all the dishes, and they are so delicious, you’ll crave for more.
