With Christmas barely over, many of us are still feeling guilty about the Christmas feasts we had indulged in. It certainly doesn’t help that the Chinese New Year festivities are starting slightly earlier this year, with it being held at the end of January.
The first few days are usually celebrated with an endless amount of sinful, yet delicious food and snacks. However, it is still possible to maintain your waistline without going on an extreme diet.
Here are 7 Simple Ways To Survive Chinese New Year Feasting.

Chinatown is an ethnic neighbourhood in Singapore that was once home to the early Chinese migrants.
Today, the cultural enclave has evolved into an eclectic mix of old and new, where visitors can visit modern establishments housed in restored heritage shophouses. Interestingly, the district has a few long-standing attractions that still serve the local communities today.
From visiting national monument Sri Mariamman Temple, attending tea appreciation classes, eating local delicacies at Chinatown Complex Food Centre to savouring traditional bakery Tong Heng’s famous egg tarts, here is our Guide to Singapore’s Chinatown. There is so much to see, so much to eat and one would have to explore the vicinity to understand what we mean.
Osaka is the birthplace of Okonomiyaki, an all-time favourite street snack in Japan. Okonomiyaki is a savoury pancake that is mostly made out of the pancake batter and cabbage as the base. Sometimes meats or seafood are also added to finish it off, such as slices of pork or octopus. Then, some sweet sauce will be brushed on top, together with mayonnaise.
This popular street snack is synonymous with Osaka’s cuisine and having a piping hot Okonomiyaki on a chilly night in Osaka is one of the best things to do if you ever visit the prefecture.
When it comes to premium Japanese beef, most epicureans’ general knowledge are confined to just Wagyu. But did you know that under the category of Wagyu lies several more species?
Many restaurants—outside of Japan—use the word ‘Wagyu’ and ‘Kobe’ interchangeably, which is inherently wrong. Here’s the thing: Every Kobe is Wagyu, but not all Wagyu is Kobe.
Wagyu basically refers to any Japanese cattle breed, whereas Kobe, on the other hand, refers to a specific black Tajima cattle that have been raised under strict conditions in Hyogo Prefecture.
From Matsusaka Beef to Ohmi Beef, here are The 5 Different Types of Premium Japanese Beef Worth Splurging On.
Every year, there are festivities and occasions that we look forward to, because those are times when we would gather with our loved ones over good food. Chinese New Year is one of them, and family dinners are so precious.
Because it is a yearly tradition, we always pick the best restaurants for our dinners. Well, there is no need to scrimp when it comes to treating your family, yes?
Mitzo is a perennial favourite among each and everyone in our family, and its Lunar feast is nothing short of luxurious and resplendent.
We had first dips of the set menus and boy, you need to bring your family there. The modern Cantonese cuisine will wow both the young and old.
Tokyo generally experiences early sunsets all year round. During the summer, daylight lasts until about 7pm in the evening. But during the colder months such as November and December, the country will already be blanketed in darkness once it hits 4pm. This definitely makes the days in Tokyo much shorter, especially when shops would close earlier too.
Step out of your hotel at 8pm, and you will probably have a hard time finding restaurants or stores that are still open. Shinjuku, however, never sleeps.
If you are one for a good late-night drink or if you just need a late night snack, here are 7 Food Places in Shinjuku (Tokyo) that open till late.
Take a whiff in the bustling night markets—in China, Hong Kong and Taiwan—and you would detect an unbearable odour permeating through the bazaar.
The cringe-worthy stench comes from a traditional Chinese delicacy called Stinky Tofu and it is actually an all-time favourite delicacy. The Stinky Tofu is akin to Singaporeans’ beloved durian, where an acquired taste is required to enjoy this snack.
So what exactly is a Stinky Tofu? Well, this street snack is essentially a fermented bean curd that is available in a variety of cooking methods and it can be served raw, deep-fried or steamed. For foreigners and first-timers, this dish could be an episode of Fear Factor. But should you be daring enough to overcome the overwhelming redolence, a culinary treat awaits.

Wasabi—you either love it or hate it. The popular Japanese condiment is usually eaten with sashimi and sushi, but in recent times, we are seeing wasabi as a flavour in several desserts and sweet treats; KitKat is one of them!
Maybe you do not like wasabi due to the spicy sensation (sort of) that shoots up your nostrils. Well, it does not give you that sweltering heat of a chilli padi, but it definitely makes your eyes well up.
It is easy to shun wasabi altogether at the dinner table, but perhaps these 9 Health Benefits You Will Enjoy From Eating Wasabi might change your mind the next time you see a dish of this Japanese speciality.
