Singapore Postcard: Trump-Kim Summit a Chance for Singapore to Showcase its Food

By Atiya Riffat

The mini city-territory of Singapore is facilitating its biggest media contingent ever for the summit between President Donald Trump and North Korean pioneer Kim Jong Un.

A sprawling 2,100 square-meter (23,000-square-foot) facility construct for a yearly Formula One race has been repaired to deal with around 3,000 journalists anticipated that would cover Tuesday’s summit.

It is a fine distance from the summit scene, and fearless reporters will probably move out of the media focus and attempt to draw nearer to the activity. Several reporters assembled outside the inns where Trump and Kim are staying and along the streets to catch their landings on Sunday.

And after that there’s the food.

Singapore, ostensibly the food capital of Asia, is treating journalists to a spread of in excess of 20 local and universal top choices at dinner times.

There are quintessential Singaporean dishes, for example, toast with a coconut and egg stick, chicken rice, and thick vermicelli in a hot stock that is made with dried shrimp.

Chia Chi Wei, a columnist from Taiwan and first-time guest to Singapore, attempted the celebrated chicken rice amid a break: “I heard such a great amount about it. It was extremely heavenly.”

The Common Good Company, a group of local eateries, is putting forth ice cream made with kimchi, a fiery Korean staple.

“I can’t recollect an occasion that is as notable, as large, as worldwide,” said its executive Wong Peck Lin. “What occasion is there in our history that has the same number of reporters from around the globe all prepared on Singapore?”

Belgian journalist Tom Van de Weghe reached in the media centre, following a 30-hour travel.

“The food is astounding. Who is paying for this?” he said.
