Happy Deepavali

In the spirit of Deepavali, I had a sudden craving for indian candies. So me and my husband went down to Little India to get some. On our journey there we also go henna-ed along the way :)

Here's some photo of our henna. Top left hand is mine, a feminine henna of flowers. It cost S$6 for one hand only, and it dries out in 30 minutes after its drawn on, and you have to leave it there for 6 hours before peeling off the hard clay-like things. That will leave you with a dark brown looking henna on your hand that will last (i was told) 2 weeks. Top right hand is my husband Jaxon's hand. On it is the Sanskrit (संस्कृता वाक्) word "Om(ॐ)" commonly used during meditation, or also for blessing. His henna cost him S$10.

The photo on the bottom is some (yes, just some) of the candies we bought in Little India. A set like that cost $5 per box. You can also get just the milk candies from Komala Villas for $10 per box of 500g milk candies. Really nice!

If you miss the festival this year, do drop by Little India next year during Deepavali.

Sparkling Vinegar

Vinegar for health! And now they come in sparking drinks as well! Taste just wonderful. Found it being sold at Carrefour Singapore. Comes in two favour: Peach, and Apple. The Apple one is nicer since I love the taste of anything cider. Per bottle cost is $2.75, which is kinda on a high side. Anyway, you can also make your own sparkling vinegar. Here is a simple recipe to try it out at home!

77% Sparking Water
10% Fructose (or Raw Honey)
8% Sorghum Vinegar (or any drinkable vinegar)
5% Apple Juice (or any other juice to make other flavour!)

Try the above recipe at your own risk. Best serve chilled or with ice :)

Here's a great site on vinegar to share with you all : Drinking Vinegar
