Chao Ting Teochew Pao Fan – Jumbo’s Pao Fan concept comes to Simpang Bedok!

Pao Fan / 泡饭 has been the buzzword in the dining scene these days and Easties will be glad that they have yet another Pao Fan option to choose from. Chao Ting Teochew Pao Fan recently opened its second outlet at Simpang Bedok. Chao Ting is one of Jumbo Group’s latest concepts, having opened Chao Ting only in June 2019 as a simple stall in Far East Square.

The Chao Ting stall at Simpang Bedok is even simpler looking as it resides within a bigger outlet called Lao Lim Kaya Toast, which happens to be opened by the Lao Lim Mee Pok next door (original one being in Jalan Tua Kong). You can actually sit at either outlet and order from both.

Hay, Gelato–Great tasting gelatos and waffles in Bedok!

Hay, have you been to Hay, Gelato yet? A whole bunch of ice-cream cafes opened up in the last few months including Hay, Gelato which is located in Bedok. For too long, I’ve felt that there are not enough cafes in the Eastern Eastern part of Singapore, ie Bedok and further East. But finally things are changing, with the opening of Hay, Gelato, An Acai Affair, Haute & Cauld etc. Unfortunately though, still no large café where you can get proper brunch/café food.

Anyway back to Hay, Gelato. They are owned by the same people who run Brine and the shuttered Laneway Market. Hay Gelato boasts premium gelatos infused with smoky flavours. You can find interesting flavours here like Pandan Lemongrass, Uji Matcha, Preserved Orange Peel and Brown Sugar Rosemary.

Bee Choo Origin – Herbal Hair Treatment

[Sponsored Post]

For the longest time ever, I have been wanting to find a solution to my thinning crown. Even prior to giving birth to Edward, I had considered consulting various professional hair treatment services that are popular in the market. However, a couple of things bugged me. One was obviously the exorbitant cost, made worse by the fact that you need several treatments before actually seeing results. Second being that I have had conflicting feedback from friends, some claiming that the treatments are just gimmicks and don’t really work. In the end, I never did visit any hair treatment businesses due to sheer inertia and doubtfulness.

Thankfully, recently I was approached by Bee Choo Origin to try out their hair treatment services. To be frank, I only had a vague impression of Bee Choo Origin as being some neighbourhood hair care business near my parents’ place. I was wondering why they would contact me for a collaboration. I did a brief check, and to my surprise, Bee Choo Origin actually has 7 outlets in Singapore and many more in countries such as Malaysia, Indonesia, Hong Kong, China and even South Korea! Not bad for a business that was established only in 2000 as a home-based business with just a stand-alone steamer!

Percolate Coffee – The croissant sandwiches look good!

Did you know that Percolate Coffee is 5 years old? Percolate Coffee’s probably the cafe that I have visited the most since my cafe hopping journey, thanks to its location in the East. And in this fickle F&B industry where customers continually search for new places to Instagram rather than to keep patronising the same place, 5 years is indeed a laudable milestone.

What happens when the toddler wants something different from what you want? Who wins?

The coffee is good (and so is their iced chocolate which is what I always order), somewhat more affordable than town prices, and always friendly faces here. I thought I should cobble together the photos I have taken in my numerous visits here. They also have a broader food menu now as compared to when they first opened. Some of the interesting sounding things they have include prawn curry mash, unagi soba, cheese croissant + curry dip and a number of croissant sandwiches with various fillings. So far, savoury food-wise, I’ve only tried the curry egg mayo a couple of times and loved it.

Scroll down to see more pictures of coffee and cakes, plus a couple of food photos taken by other people, credits below. And also, more pictures of Edward.

Percolate renovated!

My friendly neighbourhood cafe has grown up! It is now twice as big as what it used to be after the law firm next door moved out.

The layout is such that the two sides are somewhat separated by a partition wall, but the huge hole in the wall still gives the illusion of space, and yet retains a certain cosiness to it. Guess what, the interior design firm that was in charge of the renovation is my cousin’s boyfriend’s firm. I had no idea about it until after Percolate closed for renovations!

Percolate - Curry Egg Mayo Croissant $7

Glad to see that my favourite Curry Egg Mayo croissant was still on the menu! Still tastes just as good as I remember it to be.
