Madam Leng Mooncakes – A very different type of mooncake from PUTIEN

[Media Invite]

If you’re racing to find the perfect mooncake for this year’s Mid-Autumn Festival but want something really different from the usual mooncakes in the market, you might just want to check out Madam Leng Mooncakes from PUTIEN. I thought I’ve seen every type of mooncake around, but this one takes the cake in terms of creativity! Actually this mooncake has been around for 18 years, but I only discovered it recently, because only small quantities are available!

Pororo Park – 5 reasons why you should visit!

[Media Invite]

Pororo Park (8)

Whether you or your kids are fans of Pororo the little penguin from Korea or not, I would highly recommend a visit to Pororo Park the indoor playground located at Marina Square. What’s so special about this indoor playground you might ask. There are of course numerous indoor playgrounds dotted all over Singapore. I’ve never watched a single Pororo programme, and prior to my 1st visit to Pororo Park with Edward, I too wondered what’s the big deal about this place.

I’ll be frank, the admission fees are not cheap. They are probably one of the most expensive admission fees for an indoor playground in Singapore. A child ticket already costs $29.90, which in itself is already higher than average. And unlike other indoor playgrounds which usually admit at least 1 if not 2 accompanying adults for free, each accompanying adult at Pororo Park has to pay $6. Not cheap, to say the least. But Pororo Park does offer more than the average indoor playground.

Cook & Brew at The Westin introduces refreshed menu based on Executive Chef’s family recipes

[Media Invite]

Sometimes change is a good thing. A couple of years back when I first visited Cook & Brew, located on the 33rd floor of The Westin Singapore, the ambience looked really promising but the food was just average. This time round, I am glad to report that Cook & Brew’s refreshed menu is much more appetising and exciting. The following are some of the dishes that are worth checking out.

Whipped Buffalo Milk Ricotta Cheese

Whipped Buffalo Milk Ricotta Cheese $15

Before you do anything else, order this appetiser first. This was seriously so good. Who knew that a slab of Buffalo milk ricotta with truffle honey on a slice of grilled bread could be this good? I think I single-handedly finished half a pot of that ricotta cheese.

The City at I12 Katong – Too run-down to visit again

I first visited The City at I12 Katong about half a year ago. This is an indoor playground with pretend play as the main focus. The main highlights are the supermarket, the kitchen and cafe, some dress up area, and a room with large foam blocks for open-ended play.

The City at I12 Katong - Supermarket

When I first visited, the place was pretty promising. Edward enjoyed himself tremendously at the supermarket area. There were many shelves of fake supermarket goods, and little kid-sized supermarket trolleys. He went bonkers over the trolleys, filling them up with all the goods, and then going to the checkout counters to scan them over and over again. The fake money in the cash registers were great too.

The BOILER opens 2nd outlet at Esplanade– Roll up your sleeves and eat seafood with your hands here.

[Media Invite]

If you love seafood, especially the seafood-in-a bag kind where all dining etiquette goes out the window and everyone gets stuck in with their hands, you’ll be glad to know that The Boiler has opened a second outlet in town at the Esplanade Mall. This expansion comes with an al-fresco bar in addition to the air-conditioned main dining area. Their original outlet is in Tai Seng, and this is in fact their 4th year of operations.

The Boiler takes pride in its sauces to set it apart from similar seafood boil concepts. The seafood boil concept is Louisiana-inspired, but The Boiler has developed seasonal sauces with local twists, such as sambal and laksa which customers may choose to have with their seafood.
