This is a staple breakfast for Singaporeans. In the mornings, the soya bean hawkers will boil their soya bean milk and transport that to their stalls when I was young. My neighbour is one such hawker.

This neighbour always reminds me of pandan leaves, because they grew a lot of the plants in the garden. Every time my mom needed pandan leaves, I would have to knock on their doors. Sometimes, they will get really angry because they were sleeping when I knocked.
