Butterfly Park pop-up at HarbourFront Centre where you can TOUCH the butterflies!

The other day, I won some free tickets to go check out the Carnival of Butterflies at the HarbourFront Centre. It’s a pop-up event by the Butterfly Park and Insect Kingdom as part of the CNY celebrations and will run until 25 Feb. The permanent Butterfly Park at Sentosa has been around since like forever, but I’ve never ever thought to visit. After visiting this butterfly pop-up event, I realise I have to go for the full experience!

My best shot of the butterflies I think. Scroll to the end to see more butterfly pictures.

These days, nothing gets my butt moving faster than anything that’s fun, experiential and educational for toddlers. See and touch butterflies? You got my attention man. The pop-up tent is actually quite small, you have to almost crawl through the entrance to get into the tent, although you can stand upright once you’re inside.

Chinese New Year 2018 – Tamarind Hill, literally a hidden gem in Labrador Nature Reserve

[Media Invite]

Situated atop the densely forested Labrador Nature Reserve, and yet only a 10 minute walk from Labrador MRT Station, the restaurant Tamarind Hill qualifies to be called a hidden gem. When you arrive at the restaurant, it’s hard not to be wowed by the charming colonial bungalow that has been decked out to exude a rustic-luxe Asian flair, amidst vast greenery. It really feels as if you are cocooned away from the hustle and bustle of the rest of Singapore.

Tamarind Hill - (1)

The bungalow may seem small from the outside, partly because it is obscured by all the plants. But once you open the main door, you will surely be wowed by this imposing and grand looking bar area. This is probably the most instagrammable spot in the entire restaurant!

The restaurant serves traditional and contemporary Siamese cuisine, and is led by Executive Chef Wanthana Nikonsaen who hails from a small village near Laos, North-East of Thailand. But I was there to try the Lunar New Year menu, so I was keen to see how this menu might be different from all the Chinese New Year menus I have tried in the past few weeks.

For $88/pax, Tamarind Hill will be offering a 4 course set menu comprising fixed dishes of appetisers, soup, mains and desserts. If you want to have Yu Sheng / Lohei, that’s an additional $38 (small for 3 – 4 pax) or $68 (large for 7 – 8 pax). Check out the photos of the food below. If you have the chance, sit outdoors in the al-fresco area because the greenery all around is just so pretty.

How about living it up this Chinese New Year by getting Kam’s Roast Golden Duck flecked with 22-carat edible French Gold Flakes? Kam’s Roast usual Roast Duck costs $66, but if you want the Golden Duck, it costs $88. OK I guess most people would go for the original Roast Duck to save $22, but the Golden Duck might actually be a good gift for your business clients if you had to get a CNY gift for them!
