To describe my city I would use the name of a food: rojak. It means a mixture or an eclectic mix. The food from which the saying takes its meaning from is actually a traditional fruit and vegetable salad dish commonly found in Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore. Other than referring to this fruit salad dish, the colloquial meaning rojak correlates directly to the people and vibe in Singapore. The ratio and diversity of people are amazing. There are lots of races, religions, and ages all coexisting harmoniously without any problems. This epitomizes what Singapore is all about for me. On the same road, South Bridge, you can find multiple different places of worship; Muslim, Hindu, and Buddhist. My city is a mixture of everything; and that’s echoed in its food scene. Singapore's food culture is abundant with fusion food. All kinds of food. Everything you could possibly want. Wondering what to eat in Singapore? You’ll be spoilt for choice; from satay skewers, chinese style chicken rice, laksa noodles, savoury carrot cake to sweet kaya toast.
