I am so excited to see Kaya. Yes, you can get it here in Singapore easily enough, and it is a common staple during breakfast with toast and butter! My mother used to make it in the traditional way... slow cooking the curd over charcoal fire (sometimes double-boiled). Yummy!

Kaya is a nice idea Or you can buy a gift 2 pack straight from Singapore.

Fun fact from Wikipedia!! "It acts as a cheap substitute for basmati fragrance as one can use normal, non-fragrant rice and with help of pandan the dish tastes and smells like basmati is used."
