Ah, beehoon. We love it in all its forms, whether soupy, fried, or steamed. Two decades ago, this beloved staple was given a new spin by White Restaurant, and till this day White Beehoon remains one of our many local favourites.
Doused in a thick broth that’s almost gravy-like, the dish is heaped with a generous serving of prawns, squid, and clams. It has neither the fishy smell of seafood, nor does it taste overpoweringly peppery. The best of all, it doesn’t leave you thirsty after you’ve licked the plate clean - a rare feat in a world of MSG.
The noodles also have just the right amount of springiness, and if the prawns used were fresh instead of frozen, this dish would be absolutely perfect. That said, it’s no wonder White Restaurant remains the undefeated champion of its kind.Post is under moderationStream item published successfully. Item will now be visible on your stream.
Taiwan is known for many things. Their mandopop singers, their glorious bubble tea - Gong Cha, please don’t ever leave us again - and of course, their notable taiwanese desserts like the ones served at Nine Fresh.
While we're eternally grateful to Blackball for bringing Taiwanese desserts to our shores, an average of $6 a bowl might not be too easy on the pocketbook. Nine Fresh provides a much cheaper alternative, with most of its selections priced only around $2-$3 for a rather large serving.
Nine Fresh is also readily available, with as many as 15 outlets scattered around our little island. While Blackball remains my undefeated champion taste-wise, it's no denying that for what it's worth, Nine Fresh’s desserts still exceed expectations.Post is under moderationStream item published successfully.

As my fellow introverts would know, mingling outside of your comfort circle to find a date requires a whole lot of grit and willpower. Dating apps are a huge life-savers, but you don’t want to talk to just anybody - there needs to be some sort of a filter. I chose to use Tinder, because it allows fuss-free browsing from an almost inexhaustible pool with just a simple swipe of the finger.
One of Tinder’s most outstanding features for me would be the sending of only text messages on the app, which gets rid of unwanted ‘surprises’. Apart from that, your personal preferences - age, gender, height - can be keyed in and an algorithm will help sieve out profiles based on that.
A facebook profile and short bio is all that’s needed to join, and there is no limit to the number of ‘matches’ you can have in a day.Post is under moderationStream item published successfully. Item will now be visible on your stream.

We’ve all experienced this before - missing a bus by seconds and having to wait agonisingly for the next one to arrive. With SG Buses though, we no longer have to put our patience to the test with its estimated bus arrival timings for both SBS and SMRT buses.
The app allows you to key in either bus service number, bus stop number, bus stop name, or road names, which makes for very convenient and easy searching. Although the app’s estimates are slightly off at times, SG Buses has still proven itself helpful and very much indispensable.
Unless you are a very patient individual, SG Buses is probably something you’ll need in your life.Post is under moderationStream item published successfully. Item will now be visible on your stream.

We Singaporeans are famous for queueing. It’s not that we love to queue per se, but we’re willing to trade our time and energy for what’s worthy, like Bak Kwa. A case in point: snaking 5-hour long queues at Lim Chee Guan when Chinese New Year is just around the corner.
Some would say that’s borderline insane, but it’s a small price to pay for Lim Chee Guan has perfected the Bak Kwa ($56/kg). It has the right amount of smokiness, tenderness, and chewiness - something that’s hard to achieve even among its more established competitors.
If there’s one queue you should brave this coming CNY, this is it. It would be worth every bit of your time and effort.Post is under moderationStream item published successfully. Item will now be visible on your stream.
As someone on the shorter side who shops online often, my loots tend to end up being way too long and unflattering on me - except the ones I’ve gotten from Fashmob. It’s relatively new in the market, but the workmanship of their apparels do not pale in comparison to that of more established blogshops.
Fashmob’s launches every Sunday often boasts a variety of clothes to fit almost every body type possible - tall or short, slender or curvy, and their price range is similar to that of the market rate.Post is under moderationStream item published successfully.

As an owner of two Chihuahuas, I have constantly been on the lookout for a pet salon that I can entrust my pups to. Upon a friend’s recommendation, I decided to give Whiskey’s a try, and I’m glad that I did.
