One of our favourite hawker centres in Singapore will be reopening on 17 June 2020 after delayed renovation completion.
Bedok 85 Fengshan Market has been closed for renovations and was initially supposed to reopen on 17 April 2020, but was this was affected by the Circuit Breaker.
One thing that we have sorely been missing during the Circuit Breaker is the freedom to go cafe hopping. While we can’t experience the chill atmosphere and aesthetic layout of our favourite cafes, we still can try to recreate some popular cafe dishes in our kitchens while we stay home.
A popular menu item that you can attempt to make is luncheon meat fries. These thick strips of fried goodness are painfully addictive, but at the same time, they aren’t the most healthy appetiser around as everything is deep-fried. If you have an air fryer, make these fries a little less sinful by cooking them in it. We have here a simple 9-step recipe you can follow to do up your very own cafe-style luncheon meat fries with an air fryer.
Bangkok is indisputably one of the best holiday destinations for people who love cheap shopping, food and massages. However, there’s more to this beautiful city than roaming the streets of Chatuchak and slurping down a cooling cup of Thai iced tea.
Culture enthusiasts who want to enjoy Bangkok beyond just shopping and eating will be glad to know that Bangkok is steeped in a rich, enthralling history that is definitely worth exploring. There are a plethora of landmarks and museums that are open to the public that allows us to dip our toes into the city’s bounteous history and culture, offering a fresh new perspective to the land of smiles.
If you’re keen to explore this side of Bangkok, we recommend that you start off at Phra Nakhon, where you can find a number of culturally significant attractions such as the Grand Palace, Wat Arun and Wat Pho. Aside from that, the area is home to a number of eateries serving up authentic Thai fare to complete the experience.
The quest to living our best life involves nourishing our body and what we put into it matters.
It is important that you have access to fresh seasonal produce and responsibly farmed animal protein, and what better place to get incredible, high-quality cuts of meat than from Australia?
While the Circuit Breaker has been confirmed to be over by 1 June 2020, not everything will go back to normalcy immediately.
The post-measures for after the Circuit Breaker has been divided into 3 phases. Phase 1 commencing 2 June 2020 will be considered the ‘safe re-opening’ stage and allows a certain number of businesses to resume their services.
Sadly, food & beverage outlets will still not be able to allow dine-ins during Phase 1. Phase 1 is estimated to last a few weeks from the end of the Circuit Breaker.
We are pretty sure that many of us have become overnight Masterchefs during the Circuit Breaker and have been trying out new cooking ideas from all over the internet. Here, we have another one to add to your repertoire of recipes; the outrageously easy yet lip-smackingly delicious Pigs in a Blanket. For the uninitiated, Pigs in a Blanket are essentially little pastry sausage rolls.
The recipe only requires 3 ingredients, so it’s really easy to put together. These little golden-brown morsels of joy are incredibly addictive; you won’t be able to stop binging on these once they’re done in the oven!
Missing your weekly yum cha sessions with your family? Or have you just been craving for some dim sum? The Chinese-style delicacy features an assortment of bite-sized portions of food such as dumplings, buns and fried fritters that are served in little bamboo baskets. Unfortunately, unless you’re a pro in the kitchen, these morsels of joy aren’t easy to do up yourself.
Thankfully for us, there are many dim sum restaurants in Singapore that will be offering islandwide deliveries for dim sum during the Circuit Breaker period.
From the famous Swee Choon to the underrated Yi Dian Xin, we’ve got all your dim sum delivery needs covered. While we will have to do without the bamboo baskets and the experience itself, this shall suffice for now.
Bad news, McDonald’s Singapore has just announced that they will not be reopening on May 5 like many of us hoped they would.
In a recent Instagram post, they mentioned that they have been allowed to restart operations from May 4 under the essential services framework. However, they’ve decided to extend their closure for a little longer for the safety and well-being of their employees and customers.
