Le Halo at Jalan Bukit Ho Swee prides itself in being a retro themed cafe situated in the heartlands of Singapore. Together with online retail shop Chairish The Moments, the owner of the cafe furnished its interior with vintage knick-knacks from the yesteryears.
With the bright splash of colours found at almost every corner of the cafe, there will never be a dull moment here.

There are tons of restaurants that sell lobster rolls in New York City, but Luke’s Lobster has made a name for itself by bringing the best of the Maine Coast to New York City with fresh Maine lobster, crab and shrimp rolls at unbeatable prices.
The Shrimp Roll starts at just US$8, while the Crab Roll is US$13. Unlike most seafood restaurants in the Big Apple which charge over US$30 for a Lobster Roll, Luke’s is selling its Lobster Roll at a jaw-dropping price of only US$16!
Kaya toast and eggs is the nation’ favourite breakfast combination. Together with an aromatic cup of local-style coffee or tea – or what we affectionately call kopi or teh – it is the simplest form of comfort food and one that we will never get sick of.
Whenever we dine at YaKun or Toast Box, we’d wish for an operator to reinvent the environment of a toast-and-eggs joint with a modern and cafe-like take. So when we heard about La’ Coffee - located next to Old Hen Coffee Bar in the Rangoon Road neighbourhood - we headed down on its first week of operation to check them out.
We were in London for a week last month, and the sheer number of good cafes and coffee shops in the city amazed us. Some are like coffee institutions, some are casual joints, some make lovely outlets when you need a midday break, some are totally worth waking up for.
Whether you are looking for a nice spot to chill out and to have a light lunch, or to satisfy your caffeine addiction, here is our guide to London’s Top 25 Independent Cafes & Coffee Shops.
London has seen an explosion of gourmet burger joints and there are plenty of options when you are craving for a good and solid burger. Think huge and juicy patties enveloped in soft pillowy buns, together with crisp lettuce and feisty sauces. Whatever kind of burgers you are craving for, you can probably have them satisfied the Brit way. We explored the city to discover London’s best burger restaurants. Here are our top picks for the finest burgers:
PARKROYAL on Pickering is a gem along Chinatown. The eco-friendly hotel boasts a breathtaking metropolitan architecture, and the star restaurant – Lime – is a crowd pleaser no less. With a strong following from the executives and expats working in the vicinity and local families and couples, Lime dishes out delectable spreads every day for its fans. While the lunch and dinner buffet is particularly popular among its business crowd, Lime has come up with a sweet deal for those who still love dining at the gorgeous establishment – minus the food coma from a heavy lunch.
That’s what buffets always do to us, right? We eat our lunch hour away with all the cold cuts, pastas, cakes and whatnot. And we rub our bellies happily as we leave, only to realize that lunch will have us feeling all restless and dazed when we get back to our desks. So that is why Lime’s new Nonya Set Lunch got our attention, and we thought it couldn’t be a more brilliant idea!
Beginning from the month of September, the Nonya Set (S$38++) will entice with a Peranakan charm. Individually plated and with a variety of five tantalising dishes, the Nonya Set is specially conceptualised by Lime with the idea of satisfying your cravings for all things Peranakan in a comfortable and laidback environment. Retreat to a menu of Peranakan classics lovingly prepared by the prized Chef Nancy Teo – who has deep Peranakan roots – and indulge in a fulfilling lunch of Kueh Pie Tee, Bakwan Kepiting Soup, Babi Pong Teh, Ayam Buah Keluak, Chap Chye, Bubur Cha-Cha and Durian Pengat Shooter.
It is the perfect dining option – be it a business luncheon or if you are introducing overseas friends to Peranakan cuisine. It saves you the hassle of walking to and fro for your food, and it is never as messy as a buffet can get. But if you still love your all-you-can-eat style, you will be delighted to know that an additional Peranakan section has been added on to restaurant’s daily buffet spread, so you get to enjoy free flow of all these Nonya treats from Lime at PARKROYAL on Pickering Singapore.
The Nonya Set is available daily during lunch and dinner at S$38++ per person.

We have been to Hong Kong many times, but frankly, we never considered staying in Causeway Bay. We usually prefer to stay in other areas like Central, Tsim Sha Tsui, Mongkok, Kowloon, Wanchai where our favourite restaurants and shops are located. Somehow, Causeway just did not appeal to us previously. However, a recent stay at Lanson Place Hotel on Leighton Road changed all that.
A premium hospitality brand, Lanson Place is a familiar name to discerning travellers. It has many luxury serviced apartments and residences across Asia. Lanson Place Hotel, Hong Kong, however, is a full-fledged hotel and it is a warm and welcoming respite within the city.
