A celebrated stalwart in Singapore’s city centre, Pan Pacific Singapore’s multifaceted buffet restaurant, Edge, is one that never fails to take our breath away. Exuding a marvellous theatrical spread, the team of chefs bring to the fore flavours and delicacies from all over the globe with a menu that constantly changes and evolves. With 7 interactive live food theatres, 16 food stations (at least) and over a hundred dishes to choose from, this is one buffet restaurant that’ll push your appetite to the edge—literally.
We’ve always been avid fans of their weekday buffets. And just when we think that things couldn’t get any better, they go and pull off something as incredible as a Sunday brunch that encompasses everything you could ever want in a perfect weekend from a botanical gin cocktail bar stocked with a wide selection of top-tier labels, premium seafood on ice, a temple of desserts and so much more.
There’s something for everyone, even the little ones. From an onsite balloon sculptor to a newly furnished kid’s playroom that comes with their very own buffet spread, games and more, there’s no doubt that your little ones will be in for an epic Sunday. And while the kids are kept entertained, why not indulge even further with unlimited glasses of Veuve Clicquot Champagne, cocktails and G&Ts?
Happening every Sunday from 17th March to 26th May 2019, this feast fit for a king is one that’s worth the splurge. Sundays are for sleeping in for many, but for us, a good brunch trumps the extra hours of shut-eye.
For our readers, you may quote “ladyironchef” upon making reservations to enjoy the non-alcohol package at S$98++ adults, S$49++ Child, or the alcoholic package at S$178++ that’s inclusive of free-flow Veuve Clicquot Champagne.
Every Spring, the world flocks to Japan for hanami (the act of cherry blossoms appreciation). The city will be coloured pink; cherry and plum blossom trees line the streets and the entire city is magically transformed into a flower paradise.
Tokyo, in particular, plays host to a big crowd of visitors from all over the world who bask in the beauty of the blooms. It is a phenomenal experience, and it is a sheer sight to behold. One cannot simply rely on pictures to see the beauty; being in Japan for hanami is essential to take in all the beauty and to witness the splendour of Spring.
There are many spots in Tokyo for hanami, and as much as there will be crowds, it will be worth your while. So if you’re heading to Tokyo this Spring, here are some popular spots where cherry blossom trees can be found in abundance.
If you haven’t heard of Mala, you need to get out from under that rock you’re currently living in.

When it comes to mala, there are those who stand the heat and those who simply can’t.
KFC’s latest seasonal entrant might or might not add to this divide but what’s certain is that their crispy golden chicken is turning a savoury shade of red, adorning an outer shade of mala deliciousness. From 8 March 2019 and on, make a beeline to the nearest outlet and test your friendships with the new KFC Mala Chicken.
