What is open during Chinese New Year 2020? 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)!

Naiise Iconic Jewel Changi Airport – A fantastic place to get thoughtful gifts for anyone

When it comes to shopping, I’ve never particularly enjoyed shopping for clothes because I find it so hard to get clothes that perfectly fit my body and yet is still in a design that I like. I am quite the opposite though when it comes to shopping for gifts, trinkets and food items. I often want to buy up shelves and shelves of things. You should have seen my Instastories!

Fong Sheng Hao Singapore

I visited the recently opened Paya Lebar Quarter over the weekend again and was pleasantly surprised to see that it was teeming with people. Certainly not the crazy crowds seen on the first few days, but a healthy crowd. That’s a good thing because the last thing we want is yet another boring mall that nobody wants to visit. Read this article for reasons why you should visit Paya Lebar Quarter, and it’s not just for the food.

Fong Sheng Hao Singapore

But one can’t escape from the allure of food establishments in Singapore. One such eatery is the famous Fong Sheng Hao from Taipei’s Shilin Market. They are most famous for their charcoal-grilled toasts and signature milk teas. The breads are made with butter from New Zealand at the central kitchen in Singapore, and toasted at the outlet itself. As for the tea, the black tea leaves are sourced from Lin Hua Tai Tea Co, which is Taiwan’s oldest tea shop at 140 years old, and sweetened with sugarcane syrup that has been boiled for 12 hours.

Paya Lebar Quarter opens! – 5 reasons why you should visit

Those of you living or working in the East, rejoice because Paya Lebar Quarter Mall has finally opened! Yes the massive construction that has been plaguing my eyes for the last few years whenever I have to change trains at Paya Lebar MRT interchange has finally ceased, and a new mall has sprouted in its place. So what’s the big deal about this mall since it might turn out to be just the same as any other mall? Well here are 5 things are unique to Paya Lebar Quarter (PLQ), or at least not commonly found in other malls.

  1. PLQ Plaza – This huge plaza is sure to play host to numerous events and activities. But even when nothing is on, its still a great place to sit and people watch while having a takeaway meal. Yes colourful PLQ chairs and tables have been provided just for this purpose. There is a row of takeaway shops comprising cafes and a chicken rice store, so you don’t even have to step into the mall if you are pressed for time. Children too will love the sheltered spacious plaza for running about, which includes a flat fountain area (think Bugis and Clarke Quay). There is also an outdoor children’s play area
  2. Smigy Indoor Playground – You might find Smigy familiar as they are a clothing store located at Suntec City. They’ve now come up with a children’s Indoor Playground at PLQ. This is great news for parents who don’t drive because this is one of the rare few indoor playgrounds in malls connected to MRT stations. At least that is so in the East.
  3. IT big players – Is it just me or does PLQ seem to boast quite a number of big IT and Telecommunications players? They have Gadget Mix, Hua Wei, iStudio and even Challenger
  4. There’s more to PLQ than just food – What’s a person to do if they don’t want to eat or buy something? Well here are the things you can do at PLQ
    • Watch a movie at at Shaw Theatres – 12 movie halls including premium halls and an IMAX theatre with the latest laser projection technology
    • Sing Karaoke at Sing My Song Family Karaoke
    • Feed your competitive streak and need to win at Zone X arcade
    • Get your creative juices out at Our Art Studio – Art lessons, Art Jamming, Art Parties. Put some colour in your lives!
    • Take photos at the instagrammable walls with props already conveniently provided, or have your photo printed for free.
  5. A number of new to Singapore F&Bs – Well we can’t really run far away from food, so what’s new in the F&B scene? Check out Mom’s Touch, which is a South-Korean fast food chain famous hand-battered and hand-breaded chicken and burgers, brought in by the No Singboard Group. Or Fong Sheng Hao, Taiwan & Singapore’s First Charcoal Grilled Toast / Milk Tea Store. A pork and egg cheese sandwich costs about $6.50. Others include Lucky Bird (Singapore chicken rice with a modern twist), Hayai (Onigirazu without pork or lard), and Wursthans Switzerland (authentic Swiss sausages restaurant).

So there you have it, 5 things about Paya Lebar Quarter Mall that will hopefully keep the crowds coming back. Scroll down for all the pictures!
