Don’t you wish the weekend had the same number of days as the weekdays? Life would be pretty great, no doubt. But, because that’s never going to happen, we’ve got to make the most out of every weekend.

Jalan Besar is home to many eateries and Sum Dim Sum is one of the latest additions to the neighbourhood. Dim sum is a well-loved cuisine by most Singaporeans. Be it for breakfast or supper, we are always ready for some dim sum.
