Event description
Savour the flavourful and nourishing tong shui prepared by Victoria Li from the Singapore Kwangtung Hui Kuan

About this event

Cantonese tong shui can be translated literally as ‘sugar water’ and it refers to a sweet soup that is usually served at the end of a meal. Join Victoria Li from the Singapore Kwangtung Hui Kuan on a kitchen adventure where she whips up some of these delectable homemade soups!

[Meet Victoria Li!]

Hello everyone, I am Victoria Li, the Honorary President of the Singapore Kwangtung Hui Kuan. I grew up making Cantonese tong shui, so these desserts are an everyday affair for me. I think making tong shui is a way for me to connect with my roots even though I am not a big fan of sweet desserts. The preparation techniques, the knowledge of mixing and stirring the soups in different temperatures as well as the temperature control form part of my culinary heritage – I value these intangible aspects of dessert-making the most. I look forward to demonstrating my favourite desserts this coming October! See you there!

More about the Singapore Kwangtung Hui Kuan

The Singapore Kwangtung Hui Kuan was established in 1937. The clan association was started by eminent immigrants from Guangdong province, including Cantonese, Teochew, Hakka and Hainanese businessmen. The organisation aims to strengthen social ties, encourage unity, promote Chinese culture and contribute to charitable work. The clan association is governed by a management board which oversees the daily administration and varied activities of the associations. Singapore Kwangtung Hui Kuan is a federation comprising 66 clan association members, 10 trade organization members and a few hundred individual members.

Organiser My Community Festival

Organiser of Cuba Gula-Gula Saya: Tong Shui with the Singapore Kwangtung Hui Kuan

My Community Festival is a ground-up initiative showcasing Singapore’s best kept secrets and community stories through immersive tours, tastings and other cultural and heritage experiences.

4 Things To Know About The Festival

  • It is curated in collaboration with heritage practitioners, business owners, legacy brands as well as a number of religious and cultural institutions.
  • It builds upon the demand for culinary travel, cultural exploration and activity-based travel experiences - evident from the consumption habits of locals and tourists alike.
  • It aims to connect people from all walks of life through the festival platform in the hopes that they may go on to expand their social networks.
  • The festival has taken on an added dimension as a result of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. It serves as a means in which to re-introduce locals back to the island’s ethnic enclaves and to support local, legacy establishments in a triumphant display of resilience as a community. Let’s come together to celebrate the Singaporean spirit after a challenging 2020.
