Craving for 'Seafood in a bucket'? Royal Cuisine Group's rendition of a seafood bucket is here to impress your guests and satiate your tummies.  Whether you're organising a birthday celebration, housewarming, corporate event or simply throwing a gathering for no good reason, their  Signature Seafood Shell-Out Feast (SGD 233.26 w/GST) is a feast to the eyes and a tantalising addition to your party.  These 2 sets of indulgent goodness consists of a generous serving of premium seafood with your choice of sauce -  Chilli Crab, Cajun, Spicy Cajun, Black Pepper and Salted Egg.  Well.. there's no bucket served here, but you can indulge in the pile of seafood soaked with your favourite choice of sauce with your hands, and it's kind of the same thing.  Signature Seafood Shell-Out Feast (SGD 233.26 w/GST) The seafood was delivered promptly in a large box like this, which was very presentable compared to the usual plastic bags delivered by most merchants.  Check out these

A Visit to Hay Dairies Goat Farm

Image
Feeding animals is always on the top of my bucket list, especially when I travel to other countries. Hay Dairies has been on our bucket list for the longest time but we always delayed the trip due to rain or other reasons, sometimes being a little too lazy to travel that far. It is about 40 min ride/ drive away from where we are.  There are other farms around the same area so it is best to go for the rest of the attractions to maximise your travelling time - Qian Hu Fish Farm, Jurong Frog Farm (Open on weekends only) as well as Sungei Buloh Nature Reserve.  I highly recommend to buy the Alfafa Hay pack for $5 to feed the goats otherwise there is nothing much to do at the farm. There is a milking session until 10:30am but it was too early for us so we missed that activity.  The Alfafa Hay portion is quite generous for the price and I find it pretty affordable. The bag of hay actually lasted quite long if you don't feed too much at one go. We walked down the aisle and there are many

Review | LUMOS NANO Smart Projector | Home Cinema Experience

Image
Fighting over the TV with your siblings or not having sufficient privacy when you invite your significant other over to your place for a cuddly movie session?

Oh and cinema movie tickets are getting more and more expensive these days.  With LUMOS projectors, you can now enjoy a home cinematic experience in the comfort of your own place conveniently with just a few clicks and simple setup.

Hiap Joo Bakery at JB | Famous Banana Cakes and Bread

Image
If you are a fan of banana cakes, you probably already know about the famous bakery located in JB close to the customs called Hiap Joo Bakery , well known for their snakingly long queues. I've been wanting to try their banana cakes and was so excited to get my hands on it. I went into JB once before this occasion, but did not notice that their closing hours is about 5pm. This time round, we headed right for the bakery first thing after arrival in case they are sold out early.  There was already a long queue when we arrived, but thankfully it was still manageable. I probably only waited for less than 30 minutes which is within my limit.  Each box of banana cake costs 12rm (SGD 4~) and there are 10 pieces. There are also other pastries like Coffee cake and freshly baked bread. We only bought 5 boxes of banana cake as that is their signature flavour. Perhaps we'll try out the rest next time!  Our batch of banana cakes were freshly baked out of the oven and it was piping hot. The s

Review | Shi-ba Cafe at JB Mount Austin with Shiba Inu Dogs

Image
After 2 years of not travelling, I finally stepped out of Singapore border for the first time since COVID became a pandemic, and we went to JB! It's just a simple day trip but it's the closest I can experience with travel.  Since there was nothing much to do at the malls, we decided to check out the Shi-ba Cafe at Mount Austin which is almost popular for various cafes and eateries. Quite a few animal cafes have already closed down so this was the only dog cafe I could find which also has pretty good reviews on Google.  It is recommended to make a reservation in advance through their WhatsApp to secure a table as it was quite crowded even on a Monday afternoon.    Along the streets, there is a stairway with Shiba Inu artwork that leads you directly to the cafe upstairs.  There is an admission fee of 10rm per person, and an optional top-up for dog treats 2rm (Shiba Inu) and 3rm (Alaskan). There are limited food choices with only 3 main dishes and a couple of side dishes. Each ad

Review | OnTimePrint | Fast and Cheap Printing Services in Singapore

Image
As an online business owner, I understand the importance of having name cards, logo stickers and other useful business materials. Including business cards in orders gives you an edge in terms of creating opportunities and making connections. However, some companies require a large MOQ which many startup owners may not be able to commit to. Not to mention it's an ultimate frustration when the delivery is delayed.  OnTimePrint  offers fast and affordable printing services starting with low quantities for business name cards, stickers, postcards, flyers, booklets and more. With tons of preparation and work to handle to kickstart a business, the last thing any business owner needs is to go through a huge hassle of designing and ordering business essentials, or having to face order delays. Living up to its name and prioritising punctuality, OnTimePrint offers a  unique guarantee that provides a full refund in the event that the order does not arrive on time (T&Cs applied).  For tho

Review | Soul Coffee | Horoscope Drinks and Immersive Projections

Image
Not gonna lie, I am usually drawn to gimmicky food and drinks, but of course they have to taste good as well. Recently opened in Kinex Mall, Soul Coffee is one of the latest instagrammable whimsical cafes with immersive projection like underwater theme and seasons.  The misty entrance creates a mystical ambience and the vertical botanical landscape makes the place quite dreamy. If you are interested in gaining insights to your past, present and future, they also have tarot reading services .  There is a corner near the entrance with a crescent swing where you can take nice photos as well.  The cafe includes a wide selection of cakes from mille crepes, to cheesecakes and artisanal tarts . There weren't any price tagged to the cakes but we found out that the ones we picked were $10 each. The prices does not include service charge but is still quite pricey in general.  The dreamy ambience from the seasonal projections make the cafehopping experience a wonderful one. It felt like I'
