Safari-themed cafe, $1.30 dimsum and Vegan Burgers — Tiong Bahru Bakery Safari, Kuai San Dian Xin and VeganBurg Singapore

Hello from the wild side of Tiong Bahru Bakery Safari! Safari-themed cafe?! This cafe has actually been opened for a while now, but I was in awe of the huge tentage area which is reminiscent of the Africa Safari. I wouldn’t want to be in somewhere too hot, and the tentage is just right with it being kept cool all day.

Also, take a nice #OOTD in front of the tentage. haha While we can’t travel now, and if Africa is on your to-go list, why not visit this cafe for an experience!

Can’t go with their Lattes, Ham &…

7 Yogurt places to try in Singapore!

Having made having a healthier diet this year one of the new year resolutions, I make it a point to cut down on having bubble tea so Yogurt seems to the next best option, and places that sell yogurt are not commonly seen around Singapore other than those chain stalls such as Yole.

Eat and Drink Your Way to Daily Wellness

Committing to a daily wellness routine may include many components from eating healthy and exercising to meditating and achieving quality sleep. For some, the most difficult of these goals is changing eating habits to consume more nutritious foods.

However, rethinking the way you eat (and drink) doesn’t have to mean a colossal shift in your diet. According to Healthline, clean eating and the addition of a small amount of apple cider vinegar to your daily routine can help support healthy digestion, weight range maintenance, healthy glucose levels, and a functioning immune system. …


10 Tips to Recognize Ripe Fruits

Keeping fresh fruit around the house provides a healthier alternative when your sweet tooth comes calling. Understanding how and when to buy at the peak of ripeness (or just before, in some cases) can help you avoid food waste while keeping your doctor happy.

Consider these simple tips for recognizing ripe fruits:

  1. Strawberries: Check the area at the top of the berry near the stem and leaves. A ripe strawberry is fully red; green or white near the top means the fruit is underripe.

10 Fishball Noodles 鱼丸面 stalls to try in Singapore!

Fishball Noodles or 鱼丸面 is a breakfast or lunch staple for Singaporeans. This can be found in hawker centers, coffee shops, some even have their standalone stalls. It is essentially springy noodles with fishball, fishcakes tossed in their sauce. Some with chili or vinegar or both. If you don’t want chili, there’s an option to have it with ketchup and soy sauce.

I prefer to have the fishball handmade than machine-made though. How about you?

Before all these generic Plastic playgrounds that we see currently now in Singapore, we have all these unique playgrounds that are custom designed. These were built to reflect Singapore’s culture and identity. I remember playing catching or just playing at the slides when I was young. Growing up in the late 80s means we get to enjoy these simple pleasures when we don’t have all these high tech gadgets. HDB stopped designing its own playground in 1993 due to safety reasons and has been importing them from overseas suppliers instead.

It was just a casual suggestion from a friend who…
