A Visit to Madam Ang's in Singapore ~ Cindy Teh

I popped by Madam Ang's a few weeks ago, this is her current work in progress. Pictured below: sausages, abalone, pork belly and prawns, simmered in a dark soy sauce broth.

A whole steamboat buffet! Pretty typical CNY reunion dinner fare here in Singapore.


Roasted suckling pig for special festive occasions like an elder's 80th birthday, a Chinese wedding dinner or birth of a child.


Peking duck with chopped spring onions and hoi sin (oyster) sauce.


... and my favourite of all her items, the Nonya Kueh display! These little cakes are often made with glutinous rice flour and coconut milk, you should try some if you visit Singapore!

Madam Ang was too shy to be photographed but she took out her favourite displays and asked if I could showcase the more typical local fare. We were both aware that majority of her Caucasian customers are more keen on the bakery items but those are not her specialties! I concurred and happily snapped away at all her latest mini works!

Most of her items are of 1:8th or 1:10th scale, which I believe is more popular in European countries like Germany (can someone kindly verify this?) and made mostly of air dry clay. She also holds classes on how to create such beautiful local delicacies found in Singapore.

Since Yahoo closed their blogs, Madam Ang no longer has an online showcase, but I have already recommended Blogger to her, let's hope we see her presence online again soon!

Dear Cindy,
Your article was the best birthday present ever! I cannot thank you and Madam Ang enough for taking the time and sharing her work on The Mini Food Blog. I will definitely have to visit you two if I can ever come to Singapore!
Love and hugs,

Hi,

do you happen to know where has Mdm Ang moved to? I tried locating her at her last known shop address (Basement of POMO) but she's no longer there.

Look forward to hear from you! (: Thanks so much!
