As a for of respect for the death of the Founder Prime Minister, I will suspend all of my events and activities till Sunday.
After all what you have done to make Singapore what it is today, rest in peace with respect and honour, Mr Lee Kuan Yew.
May younger generations remember -even if they may not agree with everything because they don’t know how it was in the past- your example with the hard job, sacrifice, sweat, and blood you gave to forge this nation. And contribute democratically and in cooperation for the social, cultural, economical growth in the future.
After the funeral service, the late Mr Lee will make his final journey to Mandai Crematorium. The cremation service will be private.
The funeral procession for Mr Lee Kuan Yew on Sunday, March 29, will pass significant landmarks like the Old Parliament House, as well as heartland areas.
The procession, which will cover a distance of 15.4km, will commence at 12.30pm. Other landmarks include City Hall, the Padang, NTUC Centre and Singapore Conference Hall.
Members of the public can line the route from Parliament House to the University Cultural Centre (UCC) at the National University of Singapore, where the funeral service will be held, said the State Funeral Organising Committee in a statement on Thursday.
1. Roasted Tomato with Basil, Speck and Asiago
2. Vegan Healthy Fusion Salad
3. Caesar Nice-Asian Version
What better than healthy and “earthy” recipes for Earth Day? Eat vegetarian and save resources which can be shared with others. The concept of this lesson is about healthy food, with a ratio of 40% proteins, 40% carbohydrates, 20% healthy fats, which can reduce the consumption of material for more expensive and energy-intensive food. This looks like a simple workshop, but it is value for money, or moreover for health!
Roasted Tomato with Basil, Speck and Asiago
Roasted vegetables are a delicious dish which I hardly see here in Singapore. Let’s share some idea of the wonderful Italian recipes with the vegetables baked in the oven!
Vegan Healthy Fusion Salad
Done with mainly vegetables, plus chicken breast in order to increase the proteins and keep this dish quite simple, this fusion recipe represents the skills and the wisdom of Italian chefs. It is a fake simple dish, because there are the technics of chopping, of contrast, of colour, of poor ingredients, knowledge of spices, and great matching, which are the forte of Italian cuisine, plus some great flavour of the local ingredients.
Caesar Nice-Asian Version
The famous salad, balanced in order to respect the nutritional values, with more Italian flavour and some interesting combinations in order to make it more Asian!
1. Classic: Pizza Rustica di Pasqua (Italian Easter Pie)
2. The Main Dish Abbacchio Scottadito (Crispy Lamb Ribs)
3. Vegetarian: Caponata
Plus: Zucchine alla Poverella
For a Christian festivity, the Easter recipes from Rome and Latium Region which I am from, which we can do with the available ingredients in Singapore. Simple, yet flavourful ingredients and only what is necessary, according to the real traditional Italian cuisine. The whole family rallies around the table, starting from “antipasto”, usually vegetables like zucchini alla poverella, going on with pasta or main dish like Lamb (which is the symbol of Easter for Christians), accompanied by a side dish like vegetable caponata, and ending with the Easter Pie. Sometimes the Easter Pie is so rich that it can be the main course and that’s all, especially for weekends “fuori porta”, picnics at the huge wide Roman parks, or out of Rome in some peaceful countryside village.
Pizza Rustica di Pasqua (Italian Easter Pie)
This Italian Easter Pies is my family favourite ever since I was a little kid, and it is usually Nonna’s secret. There might be some Italian salami like Soppressata or Capicollo, which are usually ready just before Easter, and many different cheeses with egg, which represents resurrection. Just in time to slice and put in the pie. Enjoy!
Abbacchio Scottadito (Crispy Lamb Ribs)
Lamb is another symbol of Christianity representing Jesus Himself. The excellence of the simplicity: the success of this dish is all in the quality of the lamb (in Rome, suckling lamb is generally used). In Italian “scottadito” means “burn your finger” because these tasty ribs are irresistible to eat with your fingers in the moment they are removed from the flame… which inevitably leads to the proverbial burnt finger.
Vegetarian Caponata (bonus Zucchine alla Poverella).
Vegetables are a must in Easter Lunch, because they also represent the simple and fast ingredients, together with Azzym bread, that the Jews had to eat before escaping the wrath of the Pharaoh. Enjoy these two simple classics!
