Lao Beng from HawkerFood.com wishes all Singaporeans a Happy National Day 2015 (SG50). Happy Birthday Singapore!!! Huat ah!!!

As we celebrate our Golden Jubilee, let us not forget the pioneers, our forefathers and foremothers whom have helped our country progress from third world to the first. May we continue to enjoy peace, harmony and progress together with our beloved nation.

May there also be more nice hawker centres and young hawkers to continue the art of Hawker Food forever.

Majulah Singapura!

Onward Singapore!

前进吧, 新加坡!

Singapore’s Share a Coke campaign

hawker food and coke

If you did not know, Singapore’s ‘Share a Coke” campaign started in late April 2015 and is slated to end on 31 August 2015 (Source). This campaign basically features names, nicknames and phrases close to the hearts of Singaporeans in place of the Coca-Cola logo.

I am sure you would have probably seen an assortment of names ranging from “”Ah Kong”, “Ah Ma”, “Uncle”, “Auntie” and some singlish terms like “Tow Kay”, “Chio” and many others on various sizes of Coca-Cola cans/bottles.

I had the opportunity to customise a can of coke after purchasing over $10 worth of Coca-Cola products at the Roadshow in Bugis Junction that will run until 9th August 2015.

Naturally I went for the name “Hawker Food”, I am sure there are times when we drink Coke together with our hawker food.

Do visit http://www.coca-cola.com.sg/ShareaCokeSG/ to check where the Roadshows will be to create your personalised can of Coke before the campaign ends.

First Post

Hello World!!

This is my first “virgin” post on HawkerFood.com !! You can call me “Lao Beng” as I am no longer young and dangerous :p

Over here, I will talk about anything and everything about Food, Lifestyles (Good and Bad) and the Nostalgic feelings that we all miss.

Take note that I am not a professional blogger nor a food critic, I am just a simple person who just wants to share my experiences. Do pardon my usage of Singlish and other non-standard form of English; I sincerely hope that you will enjoy the nonsense that I spout.

Thank you and stay tuned 🙂
