Halloween is coming up and although most of us don’t celebrate it, it’s still considered an annual festival in the USA. Hence, it’s apt that in Episode 13 of ‘Tapau Please‘ by SethLui.com, we touch on the topic of seasonality and how it affects the way we consume food.

We may not notice much change in produce and diets here in Singapore, but it’s a very relevant topic in other four-season countries. But it also sparks a debate about how climate change can easily shift our expectations of what is readily available—and what’s not.

There’s also a brief discussion about how we, in Singapore, view food as always abundant and perhaps we might be taking this ease of access for granted one too many times.

For those of you who are guilty of joining a 30-minute (or more queue) just for a new restaurant or cafe opening, we also unbox the complexities of why this behaviour is almost ingrained in Singaporeans to the point of normal, and what queuing for novelty actually means.

It’s a whole episode of tongue-in-cheek humour, fun facts, and education, so be sure to share this one with your ardent food friends. We love addressing the yummy stuff.
