Jiak ba buay?

March 30, 2015 · Written by Michelle Tay

Occasional knocks on my home’s wooden door and I know there’s good to come. No, it isnt an agent trying to sell me some package but my neighbour, a 70 year-old aunty who brings food over. Living in a matured estate, I am grateful for the occasional ‘Jiak ba buay’ from the senior folks. We often see it as a Singaporean greeting but to me, its got more meaning to it. So today, I spent two hours making ondeh ondeh for her, knowing that homemade food brings comfort. Lets just jiak!
