Postcards for the weekend 61: Food & beverage

I have just returned from an overnight team building trip to Melaka, Malaysia. We were joking among ourselves that it was not a team building trip but a food marathon instead. Melaka is a foodie haven! I wish I found a postcard for a souvenir but I didn't! Too bad as I realized that it would have been nice to share a postcard with Melaka delicacies for this weekend's theme of food & beverage

Now, onto the main topic, postcards:

Postcard sent to self, sent from Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam
Sent 26 June 2016, Traveled 2,678 km

One of the best things about Vietnam is food. My partner and I went to a cooking class where I learned how to properly wrap a fresh spring roll without creating tears through the rice paper. 

Postcard sent to self, Sent from Beaufortain, France
Traveled ~ 10,600 km

This slice of cheese is from my first trip to France this summer. I was taught to eat more varieties of cheese. For this Beaufort cheese, the affinage variety was said to be the best. That variety also costs twice as much compared to the rest. Thankfully, its strong taste didn't agree with my palate. I don't have to break my wallet whenever I have the craving!

Postcard kept as a souvenir

For a Christmas treat last year, my boss invited us for a high tea at the Fullerton Hotel here in Singapore. It was a very expensive experience that I most probably won't pay for by myself. As a souvenir, I took this postcard from the hotel shop. It features local Singapore dishes, that are served in the hotel. These dishes are a combination of Malay and Chinese dishes.

I hope I have your tummy full by the end of this post.

Happy weekend, 


  1. Very colourful :) Being allergic to some things, I'm afraid I'm always a bit sceptical about trying unknown food myself...

  2. I love your postcards. It took me a while to see the cows on the top of the cheese. I'm sure that I would like it, so maybe it's better not to taste. Better for my economy, I mean.

    I had already uploaded all my recent food-related postcards. But, finally, I got something to contribute to Postcards for the Weekend today.

  3. Such a variety of cards and food! I love to see the cows on top of the cheese. The cooking class sounds great. And I love the style of the third postcard. Thank you for sharing!

  4. Beautiful cards! Cooking course sounds interesting. I also like that cheese card with cows, it's fun.
