All hail the cat without mouth; Hello Kitty Orchid Garden, Singapore’s first Hello Kitty Cafe is opening at Changi Airport Terminal 3 in May 2016!
For so long now, we have been pinning for a Hello Kitty cafe in Singapore, and though some may argue that it is but a gimmick, many of us are suckers for thematic cafes like that. Just take a look at the various Hello Kitty cafes in Asia, and how “atmospheric” in their own ways they are. Surely this is something for fans to be excited about?
What makes it even better is that the café will be open for 24 hours daily. Hello Kitty cakes for supper, anyone?

My quest to find the best tonkatsu brought me to Saboten at Changi Airport Terminal 1.
I’ve always wanted to try Saboten after hearing so much about it. Many people have been telling me that it is their favourite tonkatsu restaurant in Singapore. I am embarrassed that it took me so long to go there, but I am happy to say that I finally had the chance to drop by to sample some of the signature items on the menu.
The question now is, does Saboten have the best tonkatsu in Singapore?
The giveaway is now closed. Thank you for participating. The winners are #401, #254, #15, #198, and #152. I will be contacting you via email shortly after.
