Jing Wen
Have homecooked meal with Singaporean family
 with Jing Wen

Grandma can cook. She made some great Bak Kut Teh and sesame chicken while we got to see a little bit of Hokkien-Singaporean life. A greater experience than dining in a restaurant, we got to dine inside of Jing Wen's Grandmother's HDB flat while learning a bit about our meal. Home cooking made Grandma's way, Singaporean style. They were very hospitable and even offered us a karaoke session at the end of of our meal.

Enjoy authentic Thai food at my cozy house
 with Joy

I had a wonderful evening with Joy and her family!! I enjoyed both the food Joy cooked and the conversation I had with them in very fluent English. Joy prepared a lot of food and she even made a special drink (from Roselle and Pandanus leaf) for me. Her food and drinks were delicious!! I especially love the stir-fried chicken with cashew nuts :) But the more important part than the food is how we all get to know each other during this amazing dinner. Joy’s family is a family with great heart. If you want to try very delicious thai food with a great company, this is a place to be!!!
