Singaporean ice-cream sandwiches

In Singapore recently I had an interesting take on an ice cream sandwich. First, a very old man takes a block of ice cream (I chose mango, Jenn went with chocolate) from a freezer and hacks off the wrapping, leaving a very large block of ice cream. There are two choices from there--the block can be dressed in two thin wafers, or can be wrapped in a piece of multi-colored sliced bread.

The pictures don't really give a sense of how big these things were. They were a bit much, even for my big fat face.

(The wikipedia page on ice cream sandwiches contains an interesting list of regional variations.)

    That lkooks inspired by British cuisine. Is it true that in Singapore you can be fined 500. for not flushing the toilet?

  2. You can be fined for allowing standing water to gather or chewing gum or carrying a durian on a bus. So the toilet one sounds likely.
