Singapore's Olympic golden boy Joseph Schooling, on board Flight SQ67 back to Singapore, already knows what he wants when he returns home from Brazil - a plate of chye tow kueh (carrot cake). During the flight, he told Straits Times editor-at-large Han Fook Kwang: "Still hasn't sunk in, just want to get home, eat chye tow kueh." His mother May Schooling quipped: "I thought chef cooked for you that day?" Schooling responded: "I still want some more." He had listed the fried carrot cake dish, a quintessential Singapore breakfast, as one of his favourite meals in a Straits Times interview before the Games. And "the darker the better" is the way he likes it.
