Chwee Kueh and Michael Jackson
Here's an updated photo of the chwee kueh from Jian Bo Shui Kueh, which is now at stall #02-05 in the new Tiong Bahru market. I can't believe how cheap this stuff was - a big order of ten of these things ran only S$2.50 (US$1.70). There's a lot of oil oozing out of the stuff though.
Oh - and here was that amusingly-named "Michael Jackson" drink, otherwise known as hei bai: literally "black white." It was basically a mix of white soy bean milk with strands of a black gelatin called grass jelly. It tasted fine - it was just a mildly sweet and milky drink. But one can't help but chuckle a bit at the name of this thing; I'd probably order another one on the basis of the name alone.
