Sunday’s Six Sentence Story Word Prompt!

Char Kway Teow (Singapore food delight) | Image from  Wikimedia Commons

He has had a strong desire for some Singaporean fare for a long time, especially for char kway teow – ooh, that sweet and savoury flat noodles made from rice and stir-fried with fish cakes, eggs, vegetables, bean sprouts, sauteed pork, prawns and cockles.

Working overseas for so many years, he misses that fragrance.

And keeping in contact with his friends on Facebook is not helping either, since they are all foodies.

He raises an eyebrow when he sees an email coming in and his heart skips a beat – it is a common knowledge that the company has not fared well for a long time.

Notice of termination.

Oh well, it is a good time as any to return to Singapore for a plate of char kway teow.

In spirit of Singapore’s National Day (9 August, by the way, which is a long holiday I’ve been looking forward to forever), I decided to demonstrate my love for my country. And what is better than showcasing one of our favourite food in Singapore?

I always feel that writing about Singapore is difficult because not many people abroad really know who we are and our mangled use of language does not really help. The only thing most people know about Singapore is probably when Donald Trump accused us of stealing jobs from Americans. Or that we are always ready to whip anyone who commits a crime since the Michael Fay incident and the German vandalism ( Andreas Von Knorre and Elton Hinz) incidents.

But let me steer clear from governmental politics and introduce something that unifies many people – food. We share many similarities with Malaysia and Indonesia, although the culinary sense varies and sometimes, even from state to state with Malaysia or Indonesia.

But char kway teow is so mangled, just like our use of language, that I truly believe an authentic dish of char kway teow can never be found anywhere else.

Do not ask me about Singapore noodles. I have absolutely no idea which bright spark came up with that. Or how it made into Robert Galbraith’s (JK Rowling) novels. Twice. *roll eyes*
