2013-04 Dish Hike and Kopitiam Food
Hope you are well with the coming of Spring and for those who have to, you're done with taxes. :-)
Last year, SingaporeConnect's hike was so well-attended by Stanford students (and some of us later went off to Kopitiam Cafe for lunch instead of a western brunch) that we thought of doing a joint-event this year.
Hike + Dinner
Saturday April 13th
3 - 5 pm: Hike
5 - 7 pm: Dinner
Ever seen that satellite/space-communication like dish along the I-280? It is actually a radiotelescope belonging to Stanford. We'll start with a hike up the dish; get some exercise in the sunshine and work up an appetite! Hikers should meet at 3pm at the Tressider Union Parking Lot (L-39). Your contact person leading the hike is Yi Fei and his number is 650 963-6122. The hike will not be too strenuous but does involve walking on a paved road up and down a hill.

If you're laojiao enough to know, this is near where we had the ASEAN Sports day event. Or if you're from Stanford, you might recall this is where Terman Engineering used to be.
The fantabulous menu catered by Kopitiam Cafe includes:
- Bak kut teh with rice (pork ribs simmered a broth of herbs and spices)
- Sambal stir-fried long beans (long beans stir-fried with chilli, shrimp paste, and other spices)
- Kaya toast (toasted bread with coconut jam)
- Green bean soup (a cold sweet dessert made with mung beans)
- Ice Teh Tarik (Iced pulled milk tea)
All are welcome:
You're encouraged to invite your non-SingaporeConnect friends too!
Come catch up with old friends and make new ones :) Seeya there!
