Jazz up your Yu Sheng or Pot Luck – Gourmet Salted Egg Yolk Fish Skin Crisps and Potato Crisps

The Golden Duck CNY Packaging

[Media Invite]

Have you ever been in a situation where you are invited to a pot-luck party and you have no idea what to bring? You may not know how to cook, or not want to go to the trouble of cooking, and yet those who can’t cook have already choped the desserts. What do you do then? How about bringing something to jazz up the food that people are going to bring?

Run to the rescue The Golden Duck Salted Egg Yolk Potato Crisps and Fish Skin Crisps. Toss these salty and crispy morsels onto just about any dish you can think off and voila, you’ve added in a bit of extra excitement. I mean admit it, there are precious few people around who DON’T like something crispy, so this is a potentially winning idea! Anyway, even if you don’t eventually use these crisps, they still make good gifts for the host so you don’t end up coming empty handed.

Check out the following dishes for ideas on how to utilise The Golden Duck’s Salted Egg Yolk Potato Crisps and Fish Skin Crisps. During this Chinese New Year period, you can also get limited edition packaging in an auspicious colour complete with a festive saying aka Auspicious Blessings printed on the packet, such as 步步高升 and 身体健康.

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.

5 fun activities to enjoy with your families this Chinese New Year

Chinese New Year is a time for families and friends to get together to rekindle and strengthen their relationships. In previous decades, or should I say centuries ago, this was an important period because people lived far from each other, and means of communication was harder than it is today. These days, especially in Singapore, you will find more and more people who do not put much significance on celebrating Chinese New Year anymore. I’m sure we all know people who prefer to travel overseas during Chinese New Year, or some simply just stay at home. To put a positive angle on it, it’s probably because it’s so easy to connect with friends and relatives these days, with social media and all, not to mention that all corners of Singapore is reachable within an hour or so.

But still, here are 5 activities we should still try to do. Think of it not as a burdensome tradition to be followed year after year, but activities that are actually fun in their own right. In years to come, these will be memories to cherish.
