When in Singapore: Teh Tarik

Weird thing that I always try writing about what to do or what to experience in Singapore on the day I need to post one. Yes, I am trying to write future blog entries as much as I can so the entries will be more thought of  and elaborately written and explained. But with this category, I am finding inspiration on the day itself. I think the reason is because I am truly experiencing Singapore. I am trying to share what Singapore is in the eyes of a resident so that tourists would know beforehand what needs to be tried and what needs to be experienced in this small but incredible country. So right now, needless to say, I am sharing something I have tried just this morning - Teh Tarik ( you probably can get it in Malaysia too!).

 This is a hot milk tea beverage which can be commonly found in restaurants, outdoor stalls and Kopitiams in Southeastern Asian countries of Malaysia and Singapore. Its name is derived from the pouring process of "pulling" the drink during preparation. It is made from black teacondensed milk and/or evaporated milk. Sounds familiar right? Well this is a more economical but equally delicious if not more (since this is pretty much freshly-made when you order one) as the milk teas that you are getting from Gong Cha, KOI & Chatime - less the pearls. This is the best partner for your Kaya Toast (another favourite of course) for your authentic Singapore Breakfast.

So when in Singapore don't ever forget to get a sip of this hot & sweet drink to start your day with a smile.
