Old Yellow Cucumber Soup 老黄瓜汤 Thursday, November 13, 2008

At Singapore Loving Hut a meal of rice or dry noodle comes with a cup of free soup.

Today the free soup is the Old Yellow Cucumber Soup 老黄瓜汤 This soup is found in Asian countries and is said to be capable of warding off the "heat", which means it is good to take it in a hot country like Singapore.. Full of vitamins and goodness..

In Asian countries such as Malaysia and Singapore, it is common practice for the Chinese or Buddhist temple to offer free soup or drink for the weary travellers. Some temples in Singapore even offer free vegetarian bee hoon or rice noodle all year round !!

As a tourist visiting Los Angeles many years ago, we walked on the cold autumn day and came across a make shift soup stal by the walkway. The lady asked "Do you want some soup ?" I asked whether it is vegetarian, and she replied "yes". Then I took some in a cup and it was wonderful. In a cold day it really perks you up !

Later on, back in the comfort of the hotel room, it dawned on me that the free soup was given by the Salvation Army to serve the homeless people, not for a tourist like me !! It was heart warming to know that the spirit of charity finds its home in the hearts of people so far away..
