The word ‘chocolate’ has almost become synonymous with our home-grown brand – Awfully Chocolate. At least, it is so for Singaporeans. In the past few years, the brand has grown significantly with many outlets islandwide now, but one thing remains – the awesomeness of their chocolate cakes. That, we will always swear by.
Marina Bay Link Mall is their next conquest. Much like the main outlet in Katong, the spanking new outlet will offer a selection of chocolate-focused drinks, including a menu of brand new and never-before-seen ones. Of course, you can still pick up their popular whole cakes here.
To celebrate the opening of the new outlet at Marina Bay Link Mall, Awfully Chocolate will be offering a complimentary box of their gorgeous Dark Chocolate Truffles with every order of a whole cake*. Meanwhile, here’s to all you fellow chocolate lovers. Let’s party with Awfully Chocolate!
It will probably be a long wait if you want to dine at Afuri, a popular ramen restaurant in Tokyo.
Afuri has many outlets in Tokyo and we went to the one in Harajuku. The small unit sits just under 20 diners at one time, but the number of hungry diners in the queue is easily three times more than that. Everyone comes here for the famous yuzu ramen, and we too joined the queue on a cold night – when the temperature was almost single digit and the winds were strong.
But that did not stop us (or anyone else) from waiting for a seat at Afuri. We were to realise that it was going to be a great dinner.
Travelling is extremely common these days. We literally seize every possible long weekend and annual leave to get out of our hometowns.
Unfortunately, life is not a bed of roses and unexpected circumstances do strike us when we least expect it. This means our travel plans have to come to a halt and we would have to cancel our flight itineraries at the very last minute. More often than not, most travellers will instead choose to simply not show up at all.
Which brings us to our next point – did you know that passengers might face a penalty fee for missing their flight?
Depending on the type of your air ticket, travellers might have to pay a fine for not showing up for his/her flight. Additionally, their remaining connecting flights associated with that particular booking would too be cancelled altogether. While this might seem unfair, it is necessary for airlines to minimise wastage of seats.
Think Taipei is all about Taipei 101 and Shilin Night Market? Not really. Addiction Aquatic Development is the place to visit when in Taipei.
Addiction Aquatic Development is a massive space that houses fresh seafood and aquamarine products, a large Japanese-style supermarket, and many themed restaurants and food kiosks under one roof. It is developed by Mitsui food and beverage enterprise group, who also owns several established Japanese restaurants in Taipei, including Mitsui - our favourite Japanese restaurant in the city.
Sitting near the Songshan Airport, and what used to be the old Taipei Fish Market, it is now an upscale and classy market with Addiction Aquatic Development. It stands head and shoulders above other famous seafood markets in the world such as Tokyo’s Tsukiji Fish Market, Seoul’s Noryangjin Fish Market, Sydney’s Fish Market, and Perth’s Fremantle Market.

The aurora is a jaw-dropping natural light phenomenon that has been fascinating human civilisations since medieval times. These stunning displays are not related to the supernatural, but are simply a result of the collision between earth’s gas atoms and charged particles from the sun’s atmosphere.
Auroras take place in high-latitude regions and one can witness these spectacular formations at either of the magnetic poles during specific periods each year.
In the Northern Hemisphere, the auroras are known as ‘Aurora Borealis’, while auroras in Southern Hemisphere are called ‘Aurora Australis’. There are many aurora variations and they could exist in blue, green, pink, red and/or ultraviolet colours. Similarly, the shapes of the Northern and Southern lights could vary from curtain-like arcs to diffused flickering patches.
In this installation, we share more about Aurora Forecast for 2016 and the 5 Best Places to Catch Them.
Located on the 16th floor of The L. Square building is Atum Desserant, a specialty dessert bar that has revolutionised the way Hong Kongers eat their traditional sugary treats. The modern open-concept bar boasts beautifully plated confectionary and stunning improvisation desserts; we were beyond enthralled by Atum Desserant’s ingenious creativity.
Atum Desserant is already very famous in Hong Kong, and well-loved for their innovative concept of improvisation – where guests get to sit back, relax and partake in an interactive experience with their personal dessert chef-cum-artist who will spontaneously create an edible artwork on the spot, right before your eyes.
The fun-filled demonstration of the table-plated dessert is an effortless integration of art and food; it was quite a show that left us speechless.
