#167 Singapore...Thanks Emily!

The 65c stamp is from 2009 Local Delights issue showing Laksa,which is a popular spicy noodle soup in Malaysia and Singapore, and to a lesser extent Indonesia.

It is a merger of Chinese and Malay elements.The term "laksa" is used generally to describe two different basic types of noodle soup dishes: curry laksa and asam laksa. Curry laksa is a coconut curry soup with noodles, while asam laksa is a sour fish soup with noodles. Usually, thick rice noodles also known as laksa noodles are preferred, although thin rice vermicelli (bee hoon or mee hoon) is also common and some variants use other types.
