Living up to its moniker, the restaurant revolves around the concept of keeping life good with fresh ingredients and quality service.
In the day, Jin Ho Mia caters to those who seek a quick and hearty lunch with their wholesome range of rice bowl choices and as the sun sets, this humble eatery transforms into a hotpot restaurant.

We are seeing a rapid growth in F&B establishments that are experimenting with mod-sin cuisine. Known as ‘Modern Singaporean’ cuisine, this cooking style takes on an innovative approach with local dishes and it requires plenty of time for research and development in order to get the recipes right.
Jiakpalang Eating House is an up-and-coming casual restaurant along Alexandra Road that offers local Zi Char dishes with a twist. Driven by his passion for food and cooking, the restaurant’s executive chef Nixon Low gained some experience assisting in the kitchen before starting his own business.

Jatujak Green—or commonly known as JJ Green Market—is one of our favourite night markets in Bangkok. Situated near to the popular Chatuchak Market, JJ Green Market is where you will find both locals and tourists indulging in Thailand’s best street food, haggling prices with retail stall owners and chilling the night away with a beer or two.
The crowd starts coming in after 5pm and the place is most happening from Thursday to Sunday nights. If you are not planning to take a cab because of the peak hour jam, you can take a slow walk from Mo Chit BTS Station.
Not sure what to do or eat there? Take a look at our guide to JJ Green Market.

A sparkling fruit soda always does the trick in summer.
Singapore is ever hot and humid, and despite the occasional downpour, this little red dot on the map is constantly experiencing summer. Which explain why we are always looking out for summer treats, right?
Fruit sodas are one of our favourite respites. And a newfound favourite is Yeo’s Juscool series. They come in many flavours and the best part is they are made with real fruit juice & have a lower sugar content that meets Health Promotion Board’s (HPB) requirement for Healthier Choice Symbol (HCS).
We had a fruits party at home on one of these afternoons and here are some of the flavours that we love.
P.S. Five lucky winners will be selected and will walk away with a year’s supply of Juscool drinks. Read more about it at the end of the post.
