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.

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.

The Butcher’s Kitchen– Indulge in organic, hormone and antibiotic free meats

If the recently opened The Butcher’s Kitchen sounds familiar, it’s because it is opened by renowned butchery The Butcher which has been in Singapore for 14 years. This is one of the rare few places in Singapore where you can purchase your favourite meats to cook at home after sampling them for lunch or dinner.

The Butcher’s Kitchen’s philosophy is to retail or serve meats that are certified organic from naturally raised animals, free from antibiotics, hormone promoters and steroids. The Butcher works directly with award-winning accredited producers, visiting their farms and processing facilities to authenticate the farm to table experience.

Being a person who cares about eating clean and natural foods, it is always good to be able to have more organic options. Although it naturally costs more to go the organic route, at least such options are made available, and hopefully this means more people become exposed to the philosophy of knowing what goes into their food.

When at The Butcher’s Kitchen, one naturally has to check out the meats. The meats are prepared by grilling or pan frying with minimal marinating to focus on the quality and not the sauces. But actually, their menu is quite wide, and they have also have fish, pizzas, pastas, pies and even ice-cream, 2 huge counters worth in fact!

Dallas Restaurant & Bar– Affordable Atas dining!

Frequent visitors to Suntec City over the last decade or so would probably have remembered its rooftop garden, good for taking a respite after hours of toting heavy shopping bags, and a vantage point for viewing the Fountain of Wealth, but nothing more. Well the rooftop garden has undergone a massive makeover to become the Suntec City Sky Garden, boasting numerous spacious new restaurants featuring roof to floor glass walls. It feels as if you’re dining al-fresco, but in the comfort of air-conditioning.

Dallas Restaurant & Bar - (7)

I had the opportunity to dine at Dallas Restaurant & Bar a couple of weeks back. The restaurant is housed in an exquisite glass house-style design and is next to an eye-catching shimmering pool feature. An impressive island bar takes centre stage with its gleaming black marble top, ceiling to floor bottle display and slick leather high-chairs.

With a name like Dallas Restaurant, and having already perused the menu prior to arriving, I was expecting a casual, laid-back restaurant and as a result, I walked right past the restaurant! It is the sort of decor you would expect of a restaurant where you would not be ashamed to wine and dine your business clients. Or to have a romantic and quiet time with your other half.

And the best part is, the prices are that of a casual restaurant! Burgers and sandwiches cost about $25 while main courses such as the Roasted Crispy Chicken cost $26 and BBQ barramundi cost $30. Guys, if you’re looking for a posh looking but affordable place to impress your girl, Dallas Restaurant & Bar would be a good choice, just don’t show her the menu prices!

PasarBella Suntec City – What to eat?

Although PasarBella touts itself as a farmer’s market, I don’t really view them as such, as there’s hardly any local produce being sold and it’s mostly eateries instead of a good mix of retail and food. But whatever the name, it’s quite enjoyable going to the PasarBella outlet at The Grand Stand (former Turf City). Guess what, they’ve now opened another outlet at Suntec City so it’s much easier for those without private transportation to get a taste of what PasarBella is like.

PasarBella is located at the ground floor of Tower 1

If you’re familiar with PasarBella at The Grandstand, PasarBella at Suntec City isn’t exactly the same. The PasarBella at Suntec City is much smaller, think 1/3 the size? Also, out of the 13 stalls there, 12 are eateries. In fact, PasarBella at Suntec City strikes me more as a grungy and urban foodcourt with an overdose of graffiti laden walls and neon coloured lighting. Order from any stall that you please, collect your food and sit where you will. It’s a pricey food court though, let’s be upfront with that, be prepared to spend at least $10 for lunch there. And there’s no ubiquitous drinks stall selling canned drinks or mineral water, so that’s another $4 or so for a cup of coffee or $6 for juice.

Still, I’m sure it must be packed on weekdays with office workers looking to have something different to eat, minus the fuss of deciding on a specific restaurant to go to. The food that we tried was quite good (not thinking about the price), and I would definitely like to go back again to sample more stalls.

Best Chee Cheong Fun from Fan Play Savouries

…I have ever eaten to date that doesn’t come from a restaurant! There is this little secret hidden gem called Fan Play Savouries. It occupies one of the stalls right inside Carrefour Supermarket at Suntec City, near the vegetable section. I tell you, it’s worth the long walk through the mall to find this hidden gem. This is the best chee cheong fun I have eaten in a very long time too.

**Fan Play Savouries has moved from Suntec City Carrefour and Tanjong Pagar! Address at the bottom are their new addresses.

Fan Play Savouries sells Ipoh Chee Cheong Fun. I am told, Ipoh is famous for its Chee Cheong Fun and noodles because of the special qualities in the water that is readily available there. Apparently, even if the rest of your Chee Cheong Fun recipe ingredients are the same,as long as the water is different, the final product will exhibit a taste and texture that is quite different! The Chee Cheong Fun is sourced from one of the top Chee Cheong Fun manufacturers in Ipoh. During the research phase, the Boss of Fan Play made numerous trips down to the various manufacturers in Ipoh before finally deciding on the best one.

I have to agree that Fan Play’s Chee Cheong Fun is so silky smooth and soft, it just slides and glides so easily down the throat. The texture is simply amazing. And the interesting thing is, it doesn’t look like Chee Cheong Fun. If I hadn’t known any better, I would have thought that it was Kuay Teow I was eating. Strictly speaking, Kuay Teow is broader and thicker, but who cares? A rose by any other name smells as sweet!
