PUTIEN–Not just noodle dishes

When I think of PUTIEN restaurant, I think of its Lor Mee, Heng Hwa Noodles and its Mazu Mee Sua. Those were the dishes I would head for whenever I visited its Vivocity outlet practically a decade ago. Back then, the PUTIEN outlet was located inside the Food Republic foodcourt! How the brand has grown because now they boast 53 outlets all over the world, including 12 in Singapore. And they have also bagged the Michelin One-Star Restaurant Award for 2016, 2018 and 2018.

But PUTIEN offers more than just those noodle dishes I mentioned. They have all the sharing dishes that you would expect when you think of a Chinese restaurant. But of course, if you want to dine at a Michelin-starred restaurant without spending too much, those noodle dishes are only $9.80++. Scroll down to what were my favourite dishes from the PUTIEN media tasting.

Outback Steakhouse is 30 years old! Enjoy up to 30% discount!

Did you know that Outback Steakhouse is 30 years old this year? To celebrate its 30th birthday, Outback Steakhouse will be offering up to 30% discounts when you dine there. Scroll down to the end of the post for details on how to obtain the 30% discount. We checked out Outback Steakhouse’s outlet at Orchard Gateway. I prefer this outlet compared to the previous location at Millenia Walk as it’s much brighter here and the decor is not so dated.

Outback Steakhouse Singapore - Typhoon Boom $15.90

I’ve always liked Outback Steakhouse for its famous Typhoon onion rings. When I was first served the dish more than a decade ago, I was amazed. I still am amazed actually! The humongous portion of onion rings still tastes so good after all these years. Huge crispy piping hot onion rings, not tiny flimsy bits. So good.

[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.
