Here’s 365days2play’s annual list of supermarkets, malls, clinics, food courts, and kopi/cafe places that are open during the CNY period! Hope you find it useful. If the supermarket or shopping centre in Orchard road is not listed here, it’s because the information is not available (yet)! You can also check the 2017 guide and 2016 guide for reference.

Premium Japan Farmers Market opens at Changi Airport – Great place to buy souvenirs before you leave Singapore

Singapore’s first Premium Japanese Farmers’ Market has opened at Changi Airport. Located at the Departure Hall of Terminal 3 (Public Area near to Sky Train / MRT), the shop boasts a range of quality vegetables, fruits, meat products and sake all exclusively brought in from Japan. Think quality beef cuts such as Wagyu, Saga Gyu, Tochigi Wagyu, or grapes such as the Shine Muscat or Kyoho grapes.

There is also a ready-to-eat bento section presented by GO-ZEN, which allows customers to customise their own bento boxes from 25 different dishes. You can order 12,000 different combinations before you end up repeating the same thing again!

You might think it strange that a Japanese grocery store might want to locate itself at Changi Airport, which is not very accessible to those not living in the East. But did you know that there is a FairPrice Finest at Changi Airport and that it is usually quite crowded? So there are already Singaporeans going to Changi Airport to do their marketing. Secondly, this would be a convenient base for tourists who are looking for last minute souvenirs to bring back to their home country! Choice Japanese products would make great souvenirs don’t you think? Anyway, I live in the East and I say YAY to more options for us! Smile

Stock up on organic meats for CNY steamboat with Ryan’s Grocery

Chinese New Year is but two weeks away, have you already made plans for your reunion dinner? I know many of you out there will be celebrating in the comfort of your homes by having steamboat gathering. Where do you usually buy your ingredients for steamboat? NTUC, Cold Storage or the wet-market?

Ryan's Grocery (2)

Well you can also consider buying your steamboat meats from Ryan’s Grocery. Ryan’s Grocery is a specialty gluten-free grocer and organic butchery, and for CNY, they’ll be retailing free-range shabu-shabu sets, organic meats and wild caught seafood. I won’t go into the benefits of eating organic food, and I know that there will always be people who will not want to fork out the extra cash for organic food, but for those of you who are keen to go organic, if not all the time then at least once in a while, you might want to check out Ryan’s Grocery. The prices are not that high actually, for organic products.

Get your fill of Shizuoka products from Cold Storage

Shizuoka Prefecture is the home of Mount Fuji, so if you’re reminiscing your recent holiday trip to Japan, you might just want to relive the food memories by making a trip to Cold Storage!

The pristine and rich waters of Mt. Fuji play a crucial role in the agriculture of that area and yield some of Japan’s best harvests including green teas, wasabi; and the most luxurious fresh fruit such as musk melons and grapes. This pure mountain water also flows into the Suruga Wan (Suruga Bay) which is well-known for some of Japan’s best seafood and seaweed.

Here are some interesting items I spotted…

Cold Storage Shizouka Food Fair (3)

$79 Shizuoka melon.This had better be one damn good tasting melon! The one vein and one fruit growth method is used to optimise nutrition and ensure the fruit is of the highest quality. Refrigerate 3 to 5 hours before eating to bring out the best flavour of the melon.

[Christmas 2014] Supermarket shopping for Christmas!

It’s the time of the year again when all the tinsel and festive baubles adorn every shop and building in Singapore. It’s also the time of the year where once again, I wish I could be in some wintry climate, experiencing a white Christmas. I quite like that it rains a lot in Singapore during December, the gloomy weather seems more Christmassy than fine sunshine. Although speaking of which, I will be in New Zealand next week, where the weather couldn’t be less Christmassy, and the sun sets only after 9….

I’ll have to get my fill of the Christmas mood from the Orchard Road malls while I still can. One place I never fail to visit to get into the festive mood is Cold Storage. I really LOVE looking at all the festive goodies, chocolates and candies of all manner wrapped up in golden ribbons, log cakes, hams, roast turkey…. the list goes on! I could spend an hour or two just walking through the aisles, imagining the sumptuous Christmas dinner I’m going to prepare.

Confectionery

When all else fails, Christmas chocolates still make for convenient Christmas gifts. I still think that Ferrero Rocher is the best chocolate to get for Christmas because they look so festive in gold! Cadbury seems to have come up with some gold foiled chocolates too.
