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.

Coastes Singapore – Yes beach bars can serve tasty dishes too!

I’ve always had this long standing impression of beach/sports-themed bars/restaurants and greasy Western fare going hand in hand.

A couple of weeks back, I had the pleasure of checking out Coastes Singapore, which is located along Siloso Beach in Sentosa. Coastes has recently rolled out new dishes from classic beach bites to seafood and pasta dishes. I tried some of their new dishes and I am glad to report that I really enjoyed their seafood dishes! My dining companions and I both agreed that the seafood dishes boasted fresh tasting and succulent seafood.
