My native Singapore may be a shopping paradise and a culinary kaleidoscope, but if you’re interested in her archaeology one only has to look at Fort Canning Hill (which, incidentally, sits behind the National Museum of Singapore). This feature from the Bangkok Post showcases the deep history of Singapore’s Forbidden Hill.
Rojak turns 50! Not that it has been 50 weeks since I first started this since I’ve missed quite a few weeks due to travels or sheer forgetfulness -it’s more like one and a half years. This week, we feature quite a few stories from Southeast Asia like the Cambodian dinosaur found on the walls of Ta Prohm (first featured in an earlier rojak) as well as several related to the 200th anniversary of Darwin’s birthday.
