It’s Open!

Happy Place, Happy Space

Finally made it back to the Asian Civilisations Museum to revisit the double billed Russell Wong in Kyoto | Life in Edo so that Loving Husband could enjoy the refreshed set of wood block prints exhibited.

Before we headed in, we noticed the ice cream cart outside the museum was open; it’s been missing for ages! This cart sells old school, traditional Singaporean flavours in blocks, sliced to order, sandwiched in either wafer or bread.

Which flavour will you have?

Big excitement as we chose sweet corn between two wafers for Loving Husband, and mango in a slice of rainbow bread for Exhilarated Younger Child & I.

Reading your Joyful Posts brings me to my happy place. I hope having them in one place makes it easier for you to find when you need a bit of happy therapy, too.

If you would like to join in, ping back to this post and I will include you next week.

  1. Oh no, you are making me to debate whether I should get sweet corn or yam forever๐Ÿ˜‚ That’s a good quick bites before or after visiting the museum๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ’•


  2. I like sweetcorn ice creams and get them from a Korean grocery sometimes, and red-bean ice creams in the shape of a fish with a wafer coating. I’d like to try yam.
    I’d also like to be able to go to a museum again!


    1. I’ve seen red bean ice cream with the fish wafer … good? Its great that you can get it all at the Korean mart. Can you get yam there too? Yam is not actually as weird as it sounds, if you can get past the colour – I quite rather like it.


  3. Hi Ju-Lyn. I want to try many of the flavors. They all sound great to me.
    I’m loving almost any sign that life is getting back to normal.
    Thanks for for the essay above and for sharing my story.


  4. I love the photo of the ice cream choices and the tale of blocks sliced to order. I’d have to make two selections: mango (my fave) and durian, because I just discovered it through you a few weeks ago! That will be in your honor. I also enjoyed the photo of the Asian Civilisations Museum. What a great outing! Finally, thanks for the shout-out to my post this week. The Finger Bibles were so cool.


  5. Ice cream inside bread! Never heard of such a thing! Who knew? But I would want to try ALL the flavors of ice cream. Could I get mine ice cream wrapped in ice cream wrapped in ice cream? They could call it That Crazy American Girl Special. ๐Ÿ˜‰


  6. Mango ice cream sounds great, but sweet corn, yam and red bean ice cream sounds odd to my ears. We do fruit ice cream here, but not vegetable. I’m sure it is good, just different.


  7. How fun that things are starting to open up! Here all restrictions will be lifted on Wednesday, not that we had that many, mostly number of people allowed on places at the same time etc.


    1. I guess it’s on and off depending on the situation. In Singapore, we are trying to move over to the endemic model – so we have targetted closures and restrictions. Our museums & food outlets have stayed open, with restrictions similar to what you’ve mentioned: the number of people allowed in places, and for us, also the number of people who can go out together. For the next few weeks, it is groups of no more than 2.
