My culinary trip around the world: Singapore & Borneo Sabah 2013

by hannahb21

This time last month I was enjoying my amazing holiday in the wildly exotic Singapore and Borneo. We had 3 days in Singapore at the start and then almost 2 weeks in Borneo Sabah.

You cannot go to South East Asia without encountering a hawker centre or night market. Singapore and Borneo are opposite ends of the spectrum when it comes to the markets. Singapore is all-together more western and eases you into Asian street food. Whereas Borneo has a certain hutle and bustle filled with incredible smells filing the air from fresh fruit, nasi goreng and the thick smoke from the satay barbecues. One thing you can always rely on at a hawker centre or night market is fresh, cheap food with a whole meal costing you under £5.

Unfortunately smell-o-vision hasn’t been invented yet but hopefully this video will awaken your senses and give you a little insight into why I love Asian food markets.

Maxwell street Hawker Centre – chicken & Rice, and Roti canai with lots of spice!

All gone...

Soo much to choose from
