South Union Park Cafe – Pastas are still good

Every year since Edward was born, we have the same problem of birthday celebration fatigue. We have 3 birthdays in February, the first being Edward, followed by my father, and finally myself. Being the baby of the family, naturally all efforts are on Edward’s birthday, and said effort namely coming from myself. By the time my birthday rolls around, I’m lost for ideas as to where to celebrate. This year, given the COVID situation, all the more we didn’t want to have a protracted celebration in a crowded location. In addition to watching out for potential sneezers and coughers, Edward has absolutely no self-restraint and will touch things and suddenly touch his face or rub his eyes!

So it was great when I saw on the Burpple App that South Union Park was offering 1-for-1 discounts on their main dishes. (Click on the link if you want a 30% discount code to purchase the Burpple App) I’ve been to South Union Park before almost 4 years back. Edward was still a baby back then! It’s nestled in a quiet neighbourhood in Kembangan, and you have to drive to get there or it’ll be a very sweaty 10 minute walk from the Kembangan MRT station as the walk will be mostly unsheltered.

Cicada – An oasis of calm in the middle of Clarke Quay

Clarke Quay can get pretty raucous at night. Pass by during the day and it lets out nary a whimper, but unleashes a monster once twilight approaches. Okay I may exaggerate but it sure can get pretty noisy come nightfall. Due to the sheer number of restaurants and bars in such a compact space, with many boasting live bands, the cacophony is inevitable. But a lot of people love it, hence the packed restaurants and bars.

Cicada at Clarke Quay

But if you are one who can’t tolerate the decibels, modern Asian diner Cicada is an oasis of calm in the heart of Clarke Quay. It is a multi-concept dining and entertainment venue that spans 2 storeys, the 1st floor being an all-day dining bistro with cocktails on tap and late night desserts, while the second floor offers a live mandarin jazz lounge paired with Asian-inspired tapas and a wide selection of alcoholic drinks.

Travelling without Social Media – You might experience something new!

Well if we can’t travel thanks to all the COVID lock downs, at least we can still read and write about it, reminisce about the past and make holiday plans for the future!

Staying at home more isn’t necessarily a bad thing. We can actually slow down instead of rushing around due to FOMO. It makes you wonder how much we’ve "improved" over the years, in terms of lifestyle offerings. More cafes, more restaurants, more entertainment attraction, and of course more travel options thanks to budget airlines and online bookings. I don’t think anyone would ever want to turn back to the days of yore, although on the topic of online bookings, I have my own reservations about that, pun not intended, but that is a story for another day. Can you imagine regressing 2 decades back?

Copenhagen Nyhavn Harbour

Copenhagen’s Nyhavn Harbour. If you want instagrammable, this is it!

For me anyway, I now have more time to put thoughts to paper. I remember the time I was travelling through Norway and Denmark. It was when I’d first started my blog. I was able to pen numerous articles throughout my 3 week holiday. However, since then, despite trying very hard, I’ve never actually been able to replicate that success on my own travels.

Nasi Lemak at Jalan Benaan Kapal Food Centre–Super old school, super delicious

Good things must share. A couple of months ago, a relative of hours recommended us this coffee stall that sells 50 cents coffee. Being intrigued, we visited the location at Jalan Benaan Kapal. The food centre or should I call it a coffeeshop turned out to be one of the most old-school ones I have seen in recent times.

Jalan Benaan Kapal Food Centre (5)

It’s just a 1 storey building with about 10 stalls. You can park just in front of this place and parking is free! It’s just amazing and so nostalgic that this food centre with just a single row of stalls in still surviving, and hidden just a stone’s throw away from the posh Tanjong Rhu estate. In its hey days, this area used to house many shipyards even up until the 90s. To think I studied nearby for 4 years and never knew about this place, nor the other popular Jalan Batu Hawker Centre nearby.
