WIAW: (Southeast) Asian style

With so many of my favorite food&fitness blogs joining Jenn in the What I Ate Wednesday fun, I thought I’d give it a shot. Maybe I’ll bring the fun to Singapore! An Asian WIAW… now, THAT will be interesting.

So here goes!

Breakfast:

I don’t usually eat tarts for breakfast… but since my mother made the effort to buy them specially for me, I thought why not sweeten my day with a Mixed Fruit Tart from Delifrance for breakfast?

Of course, as I always do, I had fruits alongside breakfast. Today, it was a nice bowl of strawberries. I love berries, but they are always so expensive in Singapore, so I do cherish every occasion that I get to eat berries of any form!

Lunch:

I was feeling rather ‘snacky’ today, so I decided to go with the flow and make myself a snacky sort of lunch! I started off with 2 pieces of Wasa Fibre Crispbread topped with Wild Garden Hummus, with a side of cherry tomatoes. So simple, and so delicious! I’m definitely loving the hummus.

If you want to go get some Wasa crackers or hummus, here’s what they look like:

Now, on to part 2 of lunch…

Next up, was a small bowl of cereal with one Weetbix, and some Familia Swiss c.m cereal and multigrain cheerios thrown in for good measure. Cereal for lunch anytime 😛

Finally, I ended off with my favorite snack, Leo’s potato and cheese crackers. If you aren’t from Singapore, you probably would not have heard of this… even Singaporeans may not remember this childhood snack, since they are extremely hard to find.

Tea:
No matter how busy I am, I always make it a point to sit down for tea break. Its just something I’ve done since young.

Today’s tea was Cherry flavored Greek Yogurt by Fruyo. (Parent brand: Fage) It was really rich and creamy, with a nice tart flavor from the cherries.

Dinner:

Well, I haven’t had dinner yet, but here’s what dinner will probably look like tonight…
It’s most likely going to be Japanese, but I haven’t decided if I’m having noodles or rice.

This is a Teriyaki Chicken Bento from UmiSushi at Holland Village. Its a nice, simple grab and go meal if you don’t have time to cook.

Maybe I’ll make some teriyaki chicken, with brown rice onigiri, and some steamed vegetables.

Or have a nice bowl of chicken somen in pumpkin soup, and a side of tofu topped with radishes.

I never thought that doing a WIAW would be so eye-opening! Haha, I never really realised how carbohydrate based most Asian diets are. And, it looks like vegetables will have to make more regular occurrences :O

Well. this concludes my first WIAW, and I definitely had fun doing it! I sure hope you had as much fun reading it 🙂

    1. Hey Ashlynne 🙂
      This was from my school’s canteen. But I recently found them at Bee Cheng Hiang at Clementi Mall. They are selling them at 2 for $5. They sell loads of other old school snacks too!

    1. Hi Amber. There’s this stall at the housing estates near Clementi Mall… I don’t know what it’s called, but it has a very bright orange interior and shopfront. It’s inbetween the mall and the hawker centre 🙂
