My Melody Café is coming to Singapore really soon and it is going to be at Suntec City! My Melody, commonly known as My Melo, is a white rabbit from the Japanese characterisation company Sanrio. She is a well-loved rabbit and is a good friend of Hello Kitty.
Richly marbled wagyu is highly popular in Japan; it is almost a way of life. These pampered cattle are prized for its fats and the Japanese sure know how to appreciate wagyu.
Now, here’s the thing. Wagyu can be done in many ways, but the most unlikely way is to make gyu-katsu sandwiches out of them. It sounds like a shame; the cow didn’t die just to be stuffed in between slices of bread.
But that is exactly what Wagyumafia The Cutlet Sandwich is doing and these guys got famous for doing it! A recent trip to Tokyo made us travel to Nakameguro just for a taste of these famed (and expensive) sandwiches and we are now converts. We promise to never judge sandwiches ever again.

Ever felt envious whenever you see photos of business/ first class flights on your social media timelines? That could be you too, except that you need to know how to get started on accumulating miles.
Miles are the best thing ever since we are no Jenners who own our own jets. And miles can come from various “channels”.
Have you heard of www.Mileslife.com? It is a relatively new app—and also our favourite one—to accumulate miles through everyday spending. It is super easy to use and the miles go directly into your Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer or preferred frequent flyer program account. It is also our go-to app to use now for dining, activities and travel and if you do so too, your next business class or even first class flight might happen soon!
If you are already on Mileslife, you’d be happy to know that there is an upcoming promotion of X5 miles! That is A LOT and you must head out from 14-17 May 2018 to dine to enjoy this promotion. If you are new to Mileslife, use our code ‘Ladyironchef‘ upon your first spending to get 1,000 miles.

For folks like us who will always be down for seafood in a heartbeat, The Pelican at One Fullerton is a top-of-mind restaurant whenever we crave quality, reasonable price point and ambience all in one.
For those of you hankering for a tipple post-work, The Pelican also has killer happy hour 1-for-1 deals. Offering diners a gorgeous view of the Marina Bay skyline, The Pelican is a dining spot we have always loved over the years.
A place that sees a frequent gathering of cocktail lovers, seafood aficionados, and hopeless romantics, the restaurant boasts both an indoor and al fresco dining area.
Regulars to The Pelican will know that seafood is the focus here. Most of their seafood and ingredients are from sustainable sources—a daunting feat yet one that highlights the responsible and committed nature of the restaurant’s team. However, not many people know that The Pelican also offers an array of incredible steaks and burgers on the menu.
And on top of these all, the all-new Upper Deck is an intimate event space that can cater to up to 20 persons—suitable for private parties, big-group gatherings and luncheons.

Since it first opened back in 1996, Si Chuan Dou Hua at PARKROYAL on Kitchener has been a haven for Sichuan and Cantonese fare, with a slightly heavier emphasis on Cantonese cooking. What diners can expect is a smorgasbord of dishes that are delicate yet boldly flavoured.
New to their offerings are 18 sensational dishes crafted by Executive Cantonese Chef Leung Wing Chung. Stemming from a long culinary career, allow your palates to be elevated as Chef Leung takes you on an edible trip with his interpretations of traditional Jiangnan cuisine in this new promotional a la carte menu.
We particularly love their Claypot Rice with Assorted Waxed Meat as well as their immensely comforting Braised Fish Maw, Abalone, Sea Cucumber and Conpoy in Brown Broth.
Did we mention? From now until 30 June 2018, all of the 18 new dishes cost just S$18++, and that’s not all—our readers can also quote ‘ladyironchef’ to enjoy an additional 20% off a la carte orders from the Flavours of Jiangnan Menu. Menu is available daily for dinner only.
For Sichuan and Cantonese classics executed with finesse, Si Chuan Dou Hua at PARKROYAL on Kitchener Road is one place that warrants a visit.
