It's another hot and steamy day here in Singapore - definitely twice-a-day-shower weather.

I am loving the hawker center food here! (Whenever I find a place where I'm nearly the only Caucasian person, I know I can count on good food!)

Yesterday,  we tried fried pork dumplings, steamed dim sum pork buns and even steamed shark fin dumplings as well as a bowl full of traditional Katong Laksa in Chinatown.

This Laksa, from the Katong area of Singapore, features cut up noodles and a hearty fish-based broth with hints of lemongrass and ginger. Ours was topped with prawns and cockle pieces. The broth was a bit too fishy for my liking, but drowned in a Tiger beer - not too bad. We made friends with the stall's owner, who spoke a bit of English, and the nearby older Singaporean men. Everyone is so friendly!

Well, we heading to our next flight. I'll try and post when I have Internet access again. Stay tuned for more photos!
