Food Trip: Bak kut teh

Here's another must-eat dish in Malaysia and Singapore that is worth featuring in the food trip corner of my blog... join me as we try out and discover the bak kut teh . Bak kut teh The name bak kut teh came from the Hokkien dialect that literally translates to "meat bone tea". Despite being called a "tea", the dish does not contain any actual tea as an ingredient. It is, however, rich in herbs and spices like cinnamon, cloves,  dang gui , fennel seeds, garlic, and star anise which is boiled with the meaty pork ribs that give it its complex taste.

Fort Siloso - Singapore

Located in the western side of Sentosa Island in Singapore, Fort Siloso is the restored renmnant of the once formidable British coastal artillery fort.  Fort Siloso got its name from the Malay word " siloso " which means rock. It was due to the fact that the fort was built in the 1880s on top of Mt. Siloso (a huge rock) that was like a sentry guarding the passageway to Singapore Harbour. This way! Here are some of the guns of Fort Siloso: I'm glad that's covered Load that cannon quick! The fort was once manned by the British Royal Artillery and the Singapore Artillery Corps.
