Postcard in a bush picturing a horse with a line through it and the printed text, 'Singapore No Horse Run'.

No horse run: both a dumpling bar and a saying meaning ‘one of a kind’ in Singapore.

I recently received this great postcard from Thomas in Singapore. It’s a fantastic combination of two of my favourite things: dumplings and unusual sayings. Thomas writes, “Hope you like this card about a dim sum bar in Singapore. ‘No horse run’ is a local lingo meaning ‘one of a kind’!”
