So instead we can talk about why the hospital food is awesome in Singapore. Alexandra Hospital has a "cafeteria" which is more like a food court, with 5 food outlets (including the staff cafe) and 3 drinks/dessert stores and actually, they're pretty damn good. Today I bought lunch - rice + 3 vege dishes on a huge plate - for $2.40. If I wanted a meat option, it would've been $3. And they were nice veges, not frozen mixed veg or anything. And then I got a big cup of iced tea. For 70c. And had a straw!

Anyway... onto the food I have photographed. This first one was dinner provided to me by the homestay I'm at since they had leftovers! Ginger chicken, rice, tofu, veges, and soup. It disappeared shortly after this photo was taken.
Dessert from the hospital cafe - shaved ice, mango and longans ($1.70). Their shaved ice machine sucks though, it's more like crushed ice, so I'm going to stick to the Alexandra Village food court from now on, even if it is a dollar more.
So that's actually all the food I've photographed since arrival here, despite eating out every day. Obviously it's not particularly appropriate to whip out my camera when I'm lunching with the house officers, but still :P some of the food I remember eating and then thinking about photographing includes fish laksa, mango shaved ice, char siu bao, some savoury bread things, lots of iced tea, and a bacon and egg mcmuffin (I wanted bacon. They don't do bacon at any of the food stalls, okay?)
Since I did so lousy on the food thing, have some pictures I took at IKEA - yeah, there's an IKEA across the road from here too. Sadly I can't buy anything to take home with me since it won't fit in my bag (although the double sized loft bed is EXACTLY what I want for my room)
