Indian Rojak and Milo Dinosaur in Singapore
Here's just a quick snack that we grabbed at Thohirah on our way back from the airport. The item above is Indian rojak, which is basically a bunch of deep fried stuff cut up mixed up with raw onions, chili pepper slices, and cucumbers that you can dip into a sweet sauce. I wasn't a huge fan of the sweet stuff though, so I ended up dipping the pieces into the curry that came with my cheese prata instead.
Another interesting item is Milo Dinosaur, which is based on Milo, an Ovaltine-like Nestle drink popular in these parts, but in this case supercharged by also adding more of the powder mix on top of the already-mixed drink. That means that you can either scoop it directly into your mouth, or let it clump together a bit as it makes contact with the fluids on top before eating it. I'm not sure how the name came about, but it is another one of those interestingly bachelor-esque preparation practices sometimes seen here.
