Sports Illustrated Swimsuit edition is published annually by Sports Illustrated. It features fashion bikini models in exotic locales. For this year’s edition, they came to Singapore!
3. In her hands is 燒賣 (siew mai), a traditional Chinese dumpling served for 點心 dim sum, a Cantonese term for a type of Chinese dish that involves small individual portions of food, usually served in a small steamer basket or on a small plate. Going for dim sum is usually known in Cantonese as going to yum cha, 飲茶, meaning drink tea.
6. Not sure does he have a proper name but since young, we call him the 大头娃娃, meaning Big Head Doll. Usually one will see him in Chinese lion dance. His weapon of choice is a straw fan which the model is holding.
11. Another local dish call 菜饭 meaning vegetable rice. Although named vegetable rice, one can order meat as well as 菜 can also mean dish aka assorted dishes with rice. Usually the store selling the rice will have lots of dishes to choose from. Most of the time we use fork and spoon so no idea why she is using chopsticks. ^^;
13. Nice oriental looking red bikini… Anyway she is eating Nasi Lemak, another famous local dish. It’s traditionally served on a banana leave as you can see, with ikan bilis (the Malay version of anchovies) and nuts, fried fish, cucumber, sometimes an egg and most importantly chilli! Chopsticks are commonly not used to eat this dish. ^^;
So all in all, very interesting and refreshing indeed to see Sports Illustrated choose Singapore as their backdrop. Have the strong East meet West type of feel. Most of the shots are taken in Sentosa, Marina Bay Sand, radndom parts of town etc. If anyone wants to see more photos of the bikini babes taken in Singapore, click here and then click on the models’ names and then photos and then enjoy yourself. Include yummy videos too.
In term of babes, I prefer Asians more than Caucasians but the babes featured in Sports Illustrated Swimsuit are not too bad as well. Probably the most beautiful gaijin babes one can find on this planet. ^^;
