30am to 7pm (Tuesdays to Saturdays); self-collection, 5.30 to 7pm (Tuesdays), 7.99/month for the first 3 months.30 to 9am and 5."I’m very excited to turn our attention to racing now, it’s a whole new era for the sport and anything can happen," said the 24-year-old.30 to 7pm (Wednesdays to Saturdays); closed on Sundays and Mondays Info: 9838-0235 Hidden in a corner off Chin Swee Road is Jalan Kukoh Teochew Kueh, which started as a pushcart stall in the 1970s.Get unlimited access to all stories at $0.Run by its third-generation owners, who are now in their 60s, the stall's taste of the handmade kueh is as I remember it from my childhood, when my late father used to frequent it.Last year, 44 local landmarks such as Ion Orchard and the Arts Science Museum were bathed in blue as part of the light-up.

There are five types of kueh and you should order every one..Ferrari in particular seem set to end a winless streak dating back to the 2019 Singapore Grand Prix but drivers Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz have been keen to play down their car's potential.Each has its own loveliness.The thin and translucent skins are springy and the kueh are generously stuffed with filling.You rarely find hawkers who use ingredients such as dried prawn and dried mushroom so liberally." CLEAN SLATE Mercedes, who are tied with Ferrari as the most successful team at Sakhir having won there six times, are chasing a fourth consecutive win at the venue.But siblings Loh Kai Mong, 64, and Loh Choon Huay, 67, make their kueh as if they were for their own family's consumption, with little regard for cost.This year's theme for the United Nations (UN) World Water Day is"Groundwater: Making the invisible visible", which highlights the importance of groundwater.

The Ang Tho Kueh ($1.50), or png kueh, is pastel pink, with a chewy glutinous rice filling chock-full of dried prawn and dried mushroom."It’s a clean slate for everyone and all to play for,” said team boss Toto Wolff.The housemade green bean paste filling of the glossy black Tau Sar Kueh ($1.50) is smooth and fragrant with housemade shallot oil.The Soon Kueh ($1.Nico Hulkenberg stands in for Sebastian Vettel at Aston Martin after the four-time champion tested positive for COVID-19.More On This Topic.

40) has a crunchy filling of jicama mixed with dried prawn and mushroom.My favourite is the white, round Koo Chai Kueh ($1.40), made with garlic chives that are cut into 1cm pieces for better mouthfeel.The Yam Kueh ($1.40) is made using a wooden mould which the stall owners' late grandmother brought from China.

The mould is carved with the Chinese character for good fortune.If you want to be able to buy the entire range of kueh, be sure to call and order at least a day in advance.Most walk-in customers go away empty-handed.Hong Kong Soya Sauce Chicken Noodles Rice ST PHOTO: HEDY KHOO 04-48 Beauty World Centre, 144 Bukit Timah Road Open: Noon to 7pm (Thursdays to Tuesdays), closed on Wednesdays Chinatown may be dotted with fabled soya sauce chicken stalls, but they are not to my taste.Legacy recipes and murky-coloured birds dunked in dark soya sauce do not necessarily constitute flavour.

Instead, I make my way to Beauty World Centre for the Hong Kong-style soya sauce chicken made by Madam Annie Cheong.The 69-year-old learnt the craft of braising from a Hong Kong chef in 1996 and adheres to the traditional, though tedious, practice of rubbing down the birds with maltose to give them a sweet aroma and shine.The skin of her braised chicken is an attractive burnt sienna, with hues of orange.I love the restrained use of Chinese rose wine in the braise, which imparts a lovely floral scent to the meat without being overpowering.She uses medium-sized 1.

5kg chickens, which render tender juicy meat.The birds are braised in a medley of spices such as star anise, cloves, Sichuan peppercorns and light soya sauce.The chicken is so tasty that I can eat it without additional sauce.I usually order the chicken drumstick noodles ($4.50) and dumpling soup ($3.

60 for three dumplings).ST PHOTO: HEDY KHOO Madam Cheong is generous with the vegetables - xiao bai cai in both the noodle dish and soup, which is rich and sweet with the taste of chicken bones.Even her dumplings are generously sized, larger than the standard Chinese soup spoon.You need at least two big bites to polish one off.Each dumpling, which weighs around 50g, has three crunchy regular-sized prawns, minced pork and strips of top-grade black wood-ear mushroom.

Additional dumplings cost $1.20 each.Madam Cheong and her daughter labour over the dumplings every night, wrapping them by hand from 7pm when the stall closes, until 2am.Don't forget to buy some raw frozen dumplings to cook at home ($12 for a box of 10).I usually buy a box to make my trip there worthwhile.

Defrost the dumplings before boiling.They taste great deep-fried too.Shen & Co Cafe Antiques.
