Subsidised hawker food book

In Humour on 26/11/2012 at 1:25 pm

Remember sometime back, I blogged on a food book that one should get if moving overseas for an extended period or as a gift if a friend is moving on overseas?

Here’s another book that is worth getting: “Every … lover of food should acquire a copy of this book.” —Prof Tommy Koh, Chairman, National Heritage Board. “There’s No Carrot in Carrot Cake” tells you what are the ingredients in 101 favourites hawker dishes. Get it. The pics alone are worth the $.

And its price, I suspect, reflects some funding from STB and the Heritage Board, so when you buy it you can feel good about getting back some of the money that you pay in taxes and imposts, even if the subsidy was meant for FTs.

The full quote from Prof Koh’s words is, “Every foreign diplomat, visitor, expatriate and lover of food should acquire a copy of this book.” Taz right, it was meant for the FTs, and but S’poreans can still buy it, so no bitching about unfairness. Go get it.
