NOX Dine in the Dark – A mind-blowing experience

This is probably the only post from me that contains no pictures. Yes, I finally experienced NOX Dine in the Dark, and I have to say this stands out as one of the most memorable dining experiences I have ever had.

Truth be told, when NOX first opened back in 2013, I had briefly heard about it and thought the concept to be gimmicky. When I was contacted for the media tasting, I was surprised to find that they are still around! But after finding out what the concept is all about, and experiencing NOX first hand, I have to say that the experience was nothing short of amazing. If you are looking out for new experiences, or feel like every restaurant is the same these days, you need to go experience NOX.

So what is NOX – Dine in the Dark anyway? As the name suggests, guests dine in a restaurant that is completely pitch black. You have to use your other senses, such as taste, touch, smell and hearing to experience the food. The idea is that without sight, your other senses are heightened for a more exploratory dining journey. The servers are specially trained blind or visually impaired people. The prix fixe three course menu will be served via 12 tasting dishes, ie 4 dishes per course. If you don’t want “spoilers” you should totally go make a reservation right now (Christmas treat maybe?) and not scroll any further.

SuperPark – Mega Indoor Activity Park from Finland opens in Singapore!

[Media Invite]

This is no ordinary indoor playground for children. For the first time ever in Singapore, there is an indoor activity park that caters to adults as well as children! It’s called SuperPark and it’s so huge it takes up 2 levels at Suntec Tower One! The idea for an all-in-one indoor park came from a Finnish father, Taneli Sutinen, who got fed-up after trying to accompany his daughter through a kid-sized activity space.

SuperPark - Super Pinball

I’m very glad he did get fed-up because SuperPark is really a great idea! There are so many activity zones that you could probably spend half a day here and still not be finished with all the games. I’m also very happy that finally there’s something for adults, because hey you know adults wanna have fun too!

I think if you look at the pictures and videos, you will see how fun it is. SuperPark is most suitable for adults and children that are 3+ years or 100 cm tall. If the child is younger, there are a number of activities that they won’t have the height, strength or coordination to participate in, unless they are dare devils! That’s why it’s free entry for kids below 3. There are no child tickets, everyone pays the same price if you’re aged 3 and above. So, the older and more independent your kids, the better it is for you to be able to play your own games, rather than chaperoning them all over. Better yet, go kid free and really get a chance to indulge in all the activities for once!

SuperPark is divided into 3 main areas : Adventure Area, Game Arena and Freestyle Hall. Scroll down to see pictures of each of the activities available. The photos without the 365days2play watermark are photos courtesy of SuperPark Singapore. You can also tell which are Edward’s favourite activities as there are more photos and videos of him. I think we only covered half the activities available in the 2 hours that we were there because we repeated the ones we liked the most and that were suitable for Edward’s age.

What to see at Singapore Garden Festival 2018

The biennial Singapore Garden Festival is back again and this is the 7th edition. SGF is the first show to bring together top international award-winning landscape and garden designers, florists and horticulturists from around the world, who are invited to the Festival to work alongside Singapore’s own talented horticulturists.

In case this doesn’t sound familiar, do you remember the wondrous fantasy garden showcase that was held in Suntec? Yes, this is the Singapore Garden Festival I am talking about and after the opening of Gardens by the Bay in 2012, the Singapore Garden Festival has been held there since 2014.

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!

Butterfly Kingdom (16)

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.
