Ideas for singaporean food
As part of the yearly conference that's held by the company for AV researchers, Randy has his world-famous pre-MVI gathering at his house. Last year, we just assisted Randy and Carol in doing some of the organizing and coordination work.

Each year, Randy and Carol put a lot of effort into a theme for the party. It could be a cowboy theme for this year, and a Hawaiian theme the next. This year, it's going to be a Singaporean theme.

Sharon and Carol have already decided on a few dishes, and maybe even a Seattle version of some ice-kachang or chendol-like desert.

A challenge that we have is that because of the researchers that are coming from all over the world, the typical Singaporean food might not be suitable for their palette. Furthermore, we have some great folks that we must be conscious of, as their dietary requirements are different too.

I wonder what kind of singapore food would you recommend a vegetarian? a diabetic? someone that can't take hot stuff?

yum! tofu dishes work for the vegetarians. As long as the food is not prepared with chicken stock or something like that. Some veggies don't eat eggs also. I found this site with SG veg recipes. Not sure about the diabetic diet, though. As for the people who can't take spicy food, then too bad! J/K I know with Indian food, if it's too hot you can always cool the spice with adding yoghurt. I dunno what the equivalent would be for Chinese or Malay food. Have fun!

Tofu is indeed a great idea! It's also one of Sharon's fave food too.

Satay is something that we plan to do, maybe on a much smaller scale... the challenge for satay is the sauce. Wonder where to get the right ingredients to make the sauce.

Thanks for the suggestions!!
