From the Book: Street Food in Singapore

Food stands at Newton Circus Hawker Centre in Singapore.

Like pretty much everything else in Singapore, the street food is clean and served in an orderly fashion. The main difference is that you won't necessarily find it on the street. Instead, you're more likely to eat delicious morsels of Malay, Indian, and Chinese cuisine in government-regulated food malls and markets, which are often inside apartment buildings, office towers, and shopping centers. Despite the geographic technicality, the food is definitely "street" in style. Bonus: You won't have to worry as much about an upset stomach ruining the rest of your trip.

Where to Eat:
The hundred or so stalls at the Chinatown Food Centre; satays and seafood at Newton Circus Hawker Centre; the Hill Street Food Centre for great fried rice noodles; the Muslim market at Geylang Serai; Ellenborough Market for Teochew Chinese food; the old hawker center in Maxwell Road; the Chomp Chomp Food Centre; the Lau Pa Sat Food Centre; and the People's Park Market. Visit the Makansutra blog for updates on the latest eateries.

How Much:
You can eat well, including generous portions of noodles and satays, for less than $10 Singapore dollars ($7) per person.

Nun's Orchid - Phaius tankervilliae
Nun's Orchid - Phaius tankervilliae
Description Nun orchid is a terrestrial orchid (many orchids are epiphytic) that grows from a 2-3 in (5-7.5 cm) wide bulblike root with a half dozen or so glossy, lance shaped leaves to 3 ft (1 m) in length and 3 in (8 cm) in width. In late spring the orchid sends up a 3-4 ft (1-1.2 m) tall stalk bearing clusters of nodding reddish brown flowers. The fragrant flowers, each about 3 in (7.5 cm) across, are silvery on the outside and have yellowish throats. They are rather subdued flowers, but close inspection reveals their typical orchid complexity. The flowers are quite long lasting and darken as they age. Location Phaius tankervilliae has a wide range in tropical Asia, from central China through India and on to Malaysia, Indonesia and Australia. Culture Nun orchid is one of the easiest of the orchids to care for. They should be repotted every couple years as the roots can become quite extensive. Light: Nun orchid grows best in light shade or filtered sunlight. Indoors, provide bright light, but not direct sun. Moisture: Nun orchid likes a well drained, but moist, rich in humus, acidic soil. It can tolerate a drought, but isn't happy about it. Allow potted plants to dry out more in winter when their leaves dies back. Water with rain water if possible, and avoid wetting the foliage. Hardiness: USDA Zones 9 - 11. Nun orchids do not suffer freezes and frosts kindly. They like to be warm. Propagation: The tubers of nun orchids can be divided to start new plants. If you just lay the old flower stalk on some moist potting medium, it may produce offsets at the nodes. These offsets can then be planted up. Usage This herbaceous perennial is usually grown in a container so it can be protected from freezing weather in winter. Even when not in flower, the foliage makes an attractive container plant. In frost free climates, grow nun orchid in the perennial bed, in borders, or under taller flowering shrubs and trees. She likes a little shade during the midday summer heat, and needs a few weeks of dry dormancy in the winter. Features The flowers of the nun orchid have an understated beauty: they are not flashy and bright like, say, a fancy rose or a showoff amaryllis, but they are proud in their subdued grays and yellow-brown hues, and not ashamed to stick around for a few weeks.
Purple Wishbone. Torenia fournieri, Seremban, Negeri Sembilan, Malaysia
Purple Wishbone. Torenia fournieri, Seremban, Negeri Sembilan, Malaysia
Well, I'd wished to post a photo of Torenia polygonoides - as I said in my last posting. But though I tried I've not yet had success in capturing a good enough picture of that little, ubiquitous plant. I'd also tried here in lovely Seremban - formerly Ms Isabella Bird's Sungai Ujong in the late nineteenth century - but I think to no avail. But as the Pharmacist from V. with whom I expect to return to Europe late tomorrow was moving from bench to bench in the pretty Lake Gardens here, pursued by descendants of the same ants that plagued Ms Bird for four or five pages in the letters (1879) about her visit, I suddenly caught sight of another Torenia. This delightful purplish blue is that of Torenia fournieri. Carolus Linnaeus named it for a pupil of his who became a clergyman and chaplain of the Swedish East Indies Company, Olof Toren (1718-1753). In that capacity he travelled to India and China; and he sent specimens of plants back home to Linnaeus. The 'fournieri' is for Eugene Pierre Nicholas Fournier (1834-1884), famous French botanist. According to Linnaeus, his Torenia asiatica - the only Torenia he describes - was especially prevalent in India. The plant is called Wishbone Flower in English. That name derives from the wishbone form of the anthers; if you examine this photo carefully you will see what is meant. It's exactly that wishbone form that's causing all my problems with 'polygonoides'. That flower is many times smaller than this 'fournieri', and the anthers are far more pronounced from the other parts of the flower. Hence 'depth of focus' is a real problem, added to that the issue of clear macrophotography. Whatever the case - don't let me bother you with my little technical problems. Enjoy this Marvel! And if you want to see a fine engraving of Torenia asiatica pulcherrima (which appears suprisingly close to our photo): look at the one in the Horto van Houtteano (1845-1888), eds. Louis van Houtte (1810-1876) and Charles Lemaire. This 'portfolio' of engravings is a Belgian masterpiece published at Ghent but many of the engravings can readily be found on the internet.
