I'm munching on 'gems'. If you have ever eaten gems, that exquisite biscuit with a colourful sugar topping, you would know why you simply can't stop at one. With every crunch, the tiny gem bursts into pieces and the icing sugar melts in your mouth, delighting your palate and filling you with oodles of childhood memories.
In the past, when there were less food choices and imports, it was a popular snack. But it no longer appeals to the sophisticated taste of kids today. The high sugar content and food colouring may even render them unhealthy.
Well, it is always nice to treat ourselves to traditional gems like these before they do their disappearing act in Singapore.
