An adaptation from the popular Indian Rose Milk, this Singaporean Rose Milk drink, known as Bandung, should be the hit drink at any upcoming spring and summer gathering.
It’s Food N’ Flix time and what a fun movie we got to watch this month with delectably rich food and delectably rich characters. This month’s flick was Crazy Rich Asians and to represent the rose-colored glasses through which we witness their lives, I made a Bandung or Singaporean Rose Milk Drink.

Crazy Rich Asians
I read the first book about 16 months ago and saw the movie a couple of months before I realized it was on the film roster. Both are light, fun ‘summer entertainment like’ pieces to enjoy. The book covers way more than the movie and many liberties were taken for the script.
The story clashes many levels of Asian standards into one frivolous rich setting: new and old money, Singaporean, Hong Kongese, the lesser viewed mainland Chinese, and ABCs (American Born Chinese). That is all I am going to say (keeping it short see why below) but if you want a fun night of light entertainment this is the movie to pick.
This is going to be a brief blog post. You see I am not quite a week back from my trip to Mexico and I am still recovering something a bit bigger than just Montezuma’s revenge. At this point, I am either severely dehydrated I did pick up some creature feasting on my stomach lining. Great way to lose 13 pounds real fast though.
I don’t have a list of the food sightings and I originally wanted to make this delectable looking Singapore chili crab but I am home and ill and no energy to cook. And I had to find a recipe I could make with what I had at home!
Bandung, Rose Milk Drink
The one food category I should not be eating since sick is the one I have been craving the most and tolerating just fine: dairy. So I was thrilled to come across this Bandung drink, otherwise knows as the Singaporean Rose Milk Drink.
It is super fast to make and very refreshing. I personally love rose flavor, if you don’t feel free to lower the quantity of rose water when making the syrup. Basically, you dilute evaporated milk with lots of water and add rose syrup and lots of ice. A perfect summer fun drink, just like the movie.
