Singaporean patterns�. Not sure what you are referring to, but the first thing that comes to mind is Peranakan (Straits Chinese) type of patterns, which I love by the way. I am not aware of any online resource, but I know of a book titled Chinese patterns, which might have what you are looking for.

Karen, what about the pattern behind your blog? Is that Hmong?

(Karen, I got your email just now, but when I replied, it bounced.)

thanks so much karen,
i’ll look this up. i think this might be it. what i was looking for, as an example, let’s say in india they always use the paisley-like patterns for food. whether it be on table cloth or canned food products. maybe singapore uses distinct patterns only for food. good day!
