Resorts World Sentosa Malaysian Food Street and Genesis 12-50

Universal Studio, Malaysian Food Street, Resorts World Sentosa Malaysian Food Street, Resorts World Sentosa

Resorts World Sentosa was quite right to site the Malaysian Food Street right next to Universal Studios Singapore – a gathering of simulacra (surely in honour of Jean Baudrillard!).

Advertised as a selection of famous street fare from various parts of Peninsula Malaysia, the space was designed to invoke a roadside meal experience (complete with zebra crossings, double yellow lines, post boxes, Flying Pigeon bicycles), except with air-conditioning, good exhaust fans, and eager beaver cleaners, and minus rats, cockroaches, and sudden rain storms. There is always something attractive about the hyperreal, though most would recognise the food as a less tasty imitation of the real. Perhaps the real hawkers didn’t pass on all their secrets to the RWS staff, or maybe something was lost in translation.

Photos of dishes and their prices, and write-ups and opening hours of the stalls (from the RWS page):

We were undertaking a journey in quite a different land the other day, with no simulacra involved:

Genesis 12
Q: Who was Abram worshipping when God called him?

possibly other gods! see Joshua 24:2

Genesis 12, Genesis 15
Q: What were God’s promises to Abram?
*people
– I will make of you a great nation,
– This man shall not be your heir; your very own son shall be your heir.” And he brought him outside and said, “Look towards heaven, and number the stars, if you are able to number them.” Then he said to him, “So shall your offspring be.”

*blessing
and I will bless you and make your name great, so that you will be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and him who dishonours you I will curse, and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.

*land
Abram passed through the land to the place at Shechem, to the oak of Moreh. At that time the Canaanites were in the land. Then the LORD appeared to Abram and said, “To your offspring I will give this land.”

Q: What did Abe do to deserve them?
nothing

What seemed to stand in the way of the fulfilment of promises?
Abram’s lies lead Sarai to be taken by the Pharaoh.
Abram is childless.
There are Canaanites on the land.

Genesis 15 – 20
Q: Did Abram believe God? In what ways did Abe show his trust that God could/would fulfil his promises?

Q: Yet, in what ways did Abe demonstrate his distrust that God could/would fulfil his promises?

Q: How did God respond each time Abram demonstrate his distrust?

Q: What does this tell us about God?

Q: What purpose did God have in fulfilling his promise to make Abraham a great nation?
Genesis 18:18-19

Malaysian Food Street, Resorts World SentosaGenesis 21
Q: Coming hot on the heels of distrust of Genesis 20, what does Genesis 21 show about God?

Q: On which of Abraham’s offspring would God’s promises rest? Why?
Isaac. Because God decided so. The son who was given by God, not the son made by Abraham. Genesis 17:17-19, 21:12.

Bird cages, Malaysian Food Street, Resorts World Sentosa Malaysian Food Street, Resorts World Sentosa

Genesis 22
Q: So Abraham and Sarah were pleased to announce the birth of their first born. Mother and baby were healthy. All seemed on track for a short while until Genesis 22. What does God ask Abraham to do?

Q: How might this hinder the fulfilment of the people promise?

Q: Why then did God ask this of Abraham?
Sacrifice son. Test if Abraham feared God or feared losing his son (22:1, 22:12, 22:18)

Q: Why did Abraham obey God? What exactly did he have faith in?
Hebrews 11:17-19

Malaysian Food Street, Resorts World Sentosa Malaysian Food Street, Resorts World Sentosa

Genesis 24
Q: So Isaac grows up without being a burnt offering. They lived amongst the Canaanites, having left the Sin-worshipping Ur of the Chaldeans. Why did Abraham insist on his servant getting Isaac a wife from his own people but not allow the servant to bring Isaac back?
Genesis 24:7

Q: So Isaac gets Rebekah. But what hindered the fulfilment of the people promise?
Genesis 25:21 – Rebekah was barren for 20 years.

Q: Who did they depend on to clear roadblock to fulfilment of the people promise?
God

Q: Rebekah conceived and had only two sons. On which son did the promises rest? Why?
Jacob (He who cheats)(27:27-29, 28:3-5). Esau sold his birthright for a bowl of lentil stew (25:29-34). Jacob tricked Isaac (Genesis 27). Notwithstanding the foregoing, God chose Jacob before he was born or had done anything to deserve it (25:23, Romans 9:10-13).

Genesis 29-30
Q: So we look at Jacob’s line. How did God’s people promise work out in Jacob’s life?

Due to trickery by Laban, Jacob gets two wives for double the price. A progeny competition results in twelve sons (cf 35:22-26).

Genesis 35
Q: Jacob & Co. certainly didn’t see much further than their current circumstances. Who were they worshipping when the LORD came to Jacob?

35:2.

Q: In light of this, what was so surprising about what God said when he met Jacob?
35:9-15. Reiteration yet expansion of promises to Abraham, esp kings.

Q: What was the assurance/basis for the promise?
35:11.

Q: What does this tell us about God?

Genesis 37
Q: What happened with Jacob (nka Israel)’s youngest son?

Q: One would have thought that the promises would continue through Joseph’s line but instead, Matthew 1 tells us that Jesus was of Judah’s line, emphasising the incident with Tamar. What part did Judah play in Joseph’s captivity?
37:1-28.

Q: What do we know about him? How about the Tamar incident?
Genesis 38. Ee-yur.

Notices on pillars, Malaysian Food Street, Resorts World Sentosa Notices on pillars, Malaysian Food Street, Resorts World Sentosa

Genesis 38-45, 50
Q: Meanwhile, how was God working out his people promise through Joseph?
45:5-8, 50:19-21. God sent Joseph to preserve the people so that there would be many survivors through the famine. What they meant for evil, God meant for good.

So Israel & Co. moved to Egypt.

Exodus 1
Q: What glorious sight greets us in Exodus 1:1-7?

The people promise certainly looks closer to fulfilment.

But the land filled with Abe’s people was Egypt and not their own land. Jingoism, xenophobia, oppression and genocide followed.

Akan datang!
