Kitchen Singaporeans have generally the culinary traditions of different ethnic groups living in Singapore, especially the Chinese, Malays and Indians. These traditions, influencing each other, have created a separate kitchen Singaporean, not losing at this culinary ethnic differences, related also to the bans religious (Muslim Malays do not eat pork and Hindus beef).

Many of the dishes brought by the early Chinese immigrants has been adapted for use locally available ingredients and therefore can not be considered mainstream Chinese cuisine. The names of dishes often come from different dialects of Chinese. Malay dishes have been adapted to local tastes and different from the originals from Malaysia or Indonesia. Just as there are often coconut milk, but adapted, inter alia, Chinese ingredients such as tofu.

Singaporean cuisine – a general term which refers to the large variety of dishes of different origin, popular in Singapore. Due to the strategic position of the city-state, Singapore cuisine has evolved over many centuries under vliyaniyaem cuisines of different peoples: Malay, Chinese, Indonesian, Indian, Peranakan and European, especially English, and Portuguese. Also felt the impact of Ceylon, Thai, Filipino and Middle Eastern cuisine. Chinese Chef of the street food center under the influence of Indian culture can experiment with ingredients such as tamarind and turmeric, while the Indian chef can cook fried noodles.

A large variety of local cuisine makes it attractive to tourists.

Food in Singapore is considered an important element of national identity and thread linking together different cultural traditions. Singaporean food in literature called “national obsession.” Singaporeans often talk about food. Religion imposes some restrictions on food. Muslims do not eat pork, Hindus – beef, as many vegetarians. Having lunch together, people from different communities show understanding, and therefore choose the food that would be acceptable to all.

Singapore Tourism Board promotes Singaporean cuisine as another tourist lure comparable to shopping. Every July the government organizes the Singapore Food Festival. Multiculturalism of local food, the easy availability of international cuisines of different styles, create a wide range of prices in Singapore “food paradise”.

Singapore, being a small country with a high population density, has very little arable land. Most of the products and ingredients town imports, although there is a small group of local farmers who grow vegetables, fruits, fish. A dense network of air and sea routes allows the city-state to import agricultural products from everywhere, including expensive seafood like sashimi from Japan.

Many Chinese dishes were adapted by immigrants from China to local conditions using local ingredients, but because they can not be considered purely Chinese cuisine. They felt the Malay, Indian and other influences. Chinese population of Singapore Multi-lingual, and each of the ethnic groups – Hokkien, teochu, haynantsy, Cantonese and Hakka – brought something into the Singaporean food.

Roti Prata – Indian pancakes, local modification of the Pakistani and Indian dishes, popular for breakfast or late dinner. Usually served with sugar and a variety of modern ingredients – such as eggs, cheese, sholoklad, masala, durian and even ice cream. Ideally, pancakes should be crispy on the outside and soft inside.

Tropical fruits are available all year round in Singapore, although most of them are imported from neighboring countries. The most famous among them is the durian. Despite national popularity, durians because of their sharp and peculiar smell forbidden for transport on public transport and consume some hotels and public buildings.

Singapore Food Festival is an annual event that takes place every year from late June to late July. Organizes the Singapore Tourism Board. Make it a weekly event, themed parties, cooking workshops and competitions organized throughout the island. This month long festival celebrating local eternally favorite food that Singapore has given the international reputation of the food paradise. There are many disagreements about the Singapore food festival among Singaporeans who believe that there has been a decline in quality.

Street food centers can be found in any corner of the city, and the food is delicious and they have a cheap, providing a broad consumer base.

Most food is imported from the neighboring countries of Singapore.

Wind Kiting in Greece of Europe



Free video about kite surfing. This free video was created for you by and can be used for free under the creative commons license with the attribution of epSos.de as the original author of this kite surfing video.

Thank you for supporting the creative commons movement !!

The kite surfing or kite surfing (also sometimes called kiteboarding, or flysurfing ) is a sport that involves sliding using a kite traction ( kite, English), which pulls the athlete ( kiter ) for four or five (rarely two) lines, two fixed to the bar, and the two or three remaining through the center of the rod and attached to the body by a harness, allowing hydroplane through a table or ski type Wakeboard designed for this purpose.
You can practice various forms; jumps and maneuvers ( freestyle ), between buoys races ( race ) and surf in waves.

The basic equipment has different safety features. The tandem kite-bar is the more items it contains. If a gust of wind too strong with the kite you can not control and can pull, the harness called the chickenloop has a safety ring that releases the kite body. It is only then that acts the fifth line option, which prevents the kite release and lose. Through the bar pass a line, giving room for the bar either stays close to the body or out, this action affects slightly on the kite making it more or less sensitive to wind (capturing more or less wind), is itself a safety measure, because you can regulate the kite when strong winds come. Kites two lines do not have this system, which is really essential.

Although the practice of this sport is rather recent widespread, it is known that from the twelfth century in China and Indonesia, where they used kites to haul small boats. In the early nineteenth century, the British inventor George Pocock patented a kite traction for cars and boats. He made ​​several tests and broke several records. Their ships could sail in directions within 90 degrees from the wind direction. In November 1903, the American inventor Samuel Cody crossed on Channel surfing with kites. In 1970, the English invented Kite Peter Powell two lines, and built a delta shaped kite with which he sailed in small boats. It is not, however, until 1977 when Gijsbertus Adrianus Panhuise patented a navigation system on a table surf for a type of parachute, thus becoming the father of kitesurfing. In Indonesia it is a culture and art, the designs are many and varied, in these areas is where the industry is kiteboarding.

The person with the kite attached to the waist using a device called a trapezoid, it is placed on the board, controls the kite with the bar, and the water is driven by the wind that hits kite. To control it through a bar, you can move (luff or bear away) choosing a path, catching waves or performing jumps. This sport, relatively recent, is a time of great popularity and a growing practice in Brazil, and the world. The kiteboarder uses various equipment, first connect your waist a ‘trapeze’, which is a belt possessed a hook made ​​of steel, then connects to “slash” the trapeze, through the “chicken loop” (a strap with a clip, the which is part of the bar and connects the kite through lines (4 or 5 according to the model of the kite).

Already exist in the market with kites hybrid form between the “C” and the “flat”, who seek the best of both. The kite “bow” is easier to relaunch after falling into the water, some redecolam without intervention athlete. The many lines of the halter may curl, especially in inexperienced hands. Depending on the model takes a long time to deflate and store. If improperly adjusted or a small disruption in halter occurs, the kite loses the flight profile and looks terrible.

In concept, are similar to kites toy because they have only one layer of fabric and fiber frame. Are inexpensive and exert traction as well, but less than a foil. Redecoláveis ​​are not, and may even sink. The frames can break or lead to severe injuries from the impact of falls. Kite surfing is practiced with a table at the foot with which he “glides” on the water. In light wind conditions using kites larger than those used in high winds. With ideal conditions it is possible to practice the sport in a safe, just gliding (free-riding), performing various tricks evolution (freestyle). You can use the kite is on the waves and on flat water depending on the characteristics of the spot, that is, in the jargon used windy place.

The Oxford and Cambridge Boat Race – It's Fun History

The Oxford and Cambridge Boat Race – It's Fun History

I thought it would be of interest to write this article about the history of the Oxford and Cambridge Boat Race as It’s one of the most famous boat races in the world and is one of England’s greatest sporting Icon competition’s.

The event generally known as “The Boat Race” is a rowing race in England between the Oxford University Boat Club and the Cambridge University Boat Club. The teams comprised of Eight rowers in each team with a cox in the bow who would control the speed of the boat.
The race is between competing eights, each spring on the Thames in London. It takes place generally on the last Saturday of March or the first Saturday of April.
The formal title of the event is the Xchanging Boat Race, and it is also known as the University Boat Race and the Oxford and Cambridge Boat Race.
The event is a popular one, not only with the alumni of the universities, but also with rowers in general and the public. An estimated quarter of a million people watch the race live from the banks of the river, around seven to nine million people on TV in the UK, and an overseas audience estimated by the Boat Race Company at around 120 million, which would make this the most viewed single day sporting event in the world. However, other sources estimate that the international audience is below 20 million.
Members of both teams are traditionally known as blues and each boat as a “Blue Boat” with Cambridge in light blue and Oxford dark blue. The first race was in 1829 and it has been held annually since 1856, with the exception of the two world wars. The most recent race was on Saturday, 3 April 2010 at 4.30pm with Cambridge (on the Middlesex Station) winning.

Although the heavyweight men’s eights are the main draw, the two universities compete in other rowing boat races. The main boat race is preceded by a race between the two reserve crews (called Isis for Oxford and Goldie for Cambridge).

The women’s eights, women’s reserve eights, men’s lightweight eights and women’s lightweight eights race in the Henley Boat races a week before the men’s heavyweight races.

There is also a ‘veterans’ boat race, usually held on a weekday before the main Boat Race, on the Thames between Putney and Hammersmith.

The Chinese call Britain ‘The Island of Hero’s’ which I think sums up what we British are all about. We British are inquisitive and competitive and are always looking over the horizon to the next adventure and discovery.

The Oxford and Cambridge Boat Race – It's Fun History

The Oxford and Cambridge Boat Race – It's Fun History

I thought it would be of interest to write this article about the history of the Oxford and Cambridge Boat Race as It’s one of the most famous boat races in the world and is one of England’s greatest sporting Icon competition’s.

The event generally known as “The Boat Race” is a rowing race in England between the Oxford University Boat Club and the Cambridge University Boat Club. The teams comprised of Eight rowers in each team with a cox in the bow who would control the speed of the boat.
The race is between competing eights, each spring on the Thames in London. It takes place generally on the last Saturday of March or the first Saturday of April.
The formal title of the event is the Xchanging Boat Race, and it is also known as the University Boat Race and the Oxford and Cambridge Boat Race.
The event is a popular one, not only with the alumni of the universities, but also with rowers in general and the public. An estimated quarter of a million people watch the race live from the banks of the river, around seven to nine million people on TV in the UK, and an overseas audience estimated by the Boat Race Company at around 120 million, which would make this the most viewed single day sporting event in the world. However, other sources estimate that the international audience is below 20 million.
Members of both teams are traditionally known as blues and each boat as a “Blue Boat” with Cambridge in light blue and Oxford dark blue. The first race was in 1829 and it has been held annually since 1856, with the exception of the two world wars. The most recent race was on Saturday, 3 April 2010 at 4.30pm with Cambridge (on the Middlesex Station) winning.

Unofficial wartime races

Date Winner
1940 Cambridge
1943 Oxford
1944 Oxford
1945 Cambridge

Although the heavyweight men’s eights are the main draw, the two universities compete in other rowing boat races. The main boat race is preceded by a race between the two reserve crews (called Isis for Oxford and Goldie for Cambridge).

The women’s eights, women’s reserve eights, men’s lightweight eights and women’s lightweight eights race in the Henley Boat races a week before the men’s heavyweight races.

There is also a ‘veterans’ boat race, usually held on a weekday before the main Boat Race, on the Thames between Putney and Hammersmith.

The Chinese call Britain ‘The Island of Hero’s’ which I think sums up what we British are all about. We British are inquisitive and competitive and are always looking over the horizon to the next adventure and discovery.
