The scary word is here again. FLU is spreading quickly.

As of April 13, there are already an estimated 1,400 cases in Mexico where the virus is blamed for 86 deaths. So far no one can predict if this is going to be the next big global flu epidemic, or just something that will die out within a few weeks. The new virus is called a swine flu, though it contains genetic segments from humans and birds viruses as well as from pigs from North America, Europe and Asia. Health officials had seen combinations of bird, pig and human virus before — but never such an intercontinental mix, including more than one pig virus. More disturbing, this virus seems to spread among people more easily than past swine flus that have sometimes jumped from pigs to people. More info here

Anyway, let’s take a look at the local food that will be affected here in sunny and humid Singapore.

Checklist of favorite foods that will be affected:

1. Bar Chor Mee (Mince Pork Noodles)

2. Kway Chap (Assorted meat and poultry braised in dark soy sauce)

3. Pig Organ Soup

4. Economic Bee Hoon with Luncheon Meat

5. Braised Pig Trotters

6. Sweet and Sour Pork

7. Bah Kut Teh

Omg, that would be a torture! Ba Chor Mee is like my staple…

Please, let the flu go away!
