Hokkaido Gourmet Street 2015 @ Jurong Point; 28 August – 06 September 2015

This coming autumn, let us pamper ourselves with delicious food choices from the 10 days Hokkaido Gourmet Street 2015 is running for, starting from 28 August - 06 September 2015. The event will be held daily at WAttention Plaza (basement 1 of Jurong Point Mall) from 11:00am to 9.30pm featuring an array of irresistible mouth-watering dishes.

This is organised by Sapporo City which is the capital of Hokkaido, Japan. Sapporo has a lot to offer particularly in terms of their marvellous food choices which is why they are given the title as the “City of Food”. The city is especially well-known for its soup curry, ramen noodles and ‘Genghis Khan’ mutton which are popular among tourists and their locals.

Chong Pang Food Centre - Our Favourite Place For Satisfying Meal

In Singapore, after a long day at work, most of us (especially young couples) tend to eat out because by the time we get home it’s already too late (around 7pm) to prepare dinner and do the washing-ups. Furthermore, on days like closing of the month or working overtime, I am sure a satisfying meal with hearty dish and a comfort beverage will instantly lift up your mood and chase away the blues despite your busy schedules and tiring day.

Day Trip To Pulau Ubin - 乌敏岛

Pulau Ubin is a small island minutes (about 10 minutes boat ride) away from Singapore and it was once used for quarrying granite that was used extensive in building the high rise buildings in Singapore. It had being more than 10 years since I last visited this beautiful "kampong style aka village" island and recently we had made two separate trips there in order to explore different parts of the island.

This offshore island is a great place for nature and bike loves to spend a day or two exploring the island by hiring a bicycle, set up a camp at one of the camping site or learn more about the mangroves and the sea creates that lives there.
