1. What do you think is key to healthy eating?
I guess moderation is the key to healthy eating. Too much of anything is not healthy so the idea is to try to strike a balance between carbohydrates, proteins and fat, fibre, vitamins and minerals.
2. What are the 5 health dishes / ingredients you love to eat?
I like Japanese cuisine and I absolutely love salmon sashimi. Next would be sushi, Korean pancakes and local dishes like yong tau foo and hor fun.
3. Is there any cuisine that you think is the best i.e. Raw, Vegan? Or are you more of a hybrid eater, taking bits and pieces and making your own thing?
I have tried going on a vegetarian diet previously but that didn’t work out for me cos I simply love meat. I find that urbanites are usually rushing for time in this concrete jungle. So I try to take time to slowly enjoy my food and chew more when I can afford the time.
4. Unhealthy eating still predominates in Singapore. What are the steps people need to take to start a better understanding of their body?
Awareness is always the starting point. Education may be helpful in creating greater awareness and people can only change after they become more aware. There are many interesting health resources online that people can access. For example, Medhatter is a website that focuses on health, fitness and beauty.
5. What are your top 5 food shops/restaurants in Singapore?
I usually bring my mum to this Japanese restaurant Shin Minori at UE Square. Their buffet is good value for money. I particularly like their Teppan Salmon dish. I like the unique yong tau foo served with special minced meat sauce from Fu Lin Tou Fu Yuen. I usually visit their branch at Amoy Street (#01-01, 19 Amoy Street) but they have a few branches at other parts of Singapore. Life Is Beautiful Kitchen and Bar at 99 Duxton Road is worth checking out if you wanna try out exotic dishes such as alligator meat served with alligator sauce. (You can check out my review here: http://leechietheleech.blogspot.sg/2014/03/soft-launch-party.html) I love the wanton mee from Lavender food centre (which is famous for the super long queue) before the place was demolished. Carousel at Royal Plaza on Scotts serves quite a good selection of fresh seafood for their buffet. There are plenty of Korean restaurants along Tanjong Pagar road if you like Korean food.
