week, a couple of young Singaporeans now studying in
London wrote in to thank Madam Kang for the work she
did in our Singaporean
Cooking Kitchen section.
These chaps told her "your
recipes are great, and they're the sort of
homecooked dishes we miss. Your pictures are
wonderful - in your quintessential Singaporean HDB
flat, with the very 'cooling' cotton sleeveless
blouses you wear, and the familiar utensils and
kitchen layout. obviously we don't know you, but we
find you strangely familiar, like somebody's
grandmother/grandaunt..." You can read the
rest of their message HERE!
from what they said, we can tell these young ones
are obviously homesick for Singapore. That's a good
feeling altogether; it tells us that the notion of
Singapore as a nation in Singaporeans' minds is
still very strong.
So I got
to thinking that now might be a good time as any to
roll out our new section specially for those of us
Singaporeans, as well as foreign expatriates who
used to work here but have gone home or elsewhere to
work. I believe these people want a place on the
Internet where they can come together to share
recipes, thoughts, happenings, ideas and the like.
course, we know that there are many other Web sites
out there doing the same thing, and maybe even doing
it spectacularly successfully. We still wish that
this new gathering place on our Web site, which we
have named ENJOY!, will have its own little place in
the hearts of Singaporeans as well as foreign expats.
in ENJOY! is free. We have
created four main categories: America, Asia, Europe
& Others. We have placed cities, instead of
countries, in each of these main categories.
That's because the living and happenings occur in
cities and we want to bring out the vibrancy of the
you are staying in, say London, you can contribute
articles/stories on your happenings there. If
the city you are in now is not shown in the four
main categories, we will add them as soon as we
receive your registration as a member.
you have registered online, you can post your
stories or happenings under the CITY category you
are now residing in. As soon as we have sighted your
article, we will publish it 'live' for all to see. You
can even upload photos, but, please make sure they
are your own photos - we don't want others to
complain we have infringed on their copyright
you have any suggestions, send them in to me at email@example.com.
