Lots of Learning in Singapore

Two weeks ago we had lots of learning adventures happening in Singapore. With our visitors I spent some time at a local tea house and taking a cooking class. It was so much fun and I can’t wait to take future guests to these same places. It was fun to learn about local Singapore and Asian cultures while participating in hands on activities.

The first stop was a visit to Yixing Xuan Tea House where we participated in a tea appreciation workshop. In this course we learned about Chinese culture and the history of tea, we learned about various kinds of tea leaves, and how to prepare tea in the traditional way.  This was a great learning experience and unfortunately I was so into it that I didn’t take many pictures! You’ll just have to come visit and see for yourself!

Next on our learning adventure, we headed to Food Playground for a cooking class. We cooked local food such as Fried Kway Teow, Chicken Satay, and a dessert called Kueh Dadar. After we cooked we got to eat everything for lunch!
