Mayson Bakery @ Jurong Point

Bakeries are very popular among Singaporeans. You can find bakeries almost everywhere in Singapore including the famous ones like BreadTalk and PrimaDeli. There are also some unknown and never-heard-before bakeries such as the one that I'm going to talk about known as Mayson Bakery. Mayson Bakery is a Halal bakery which sells a variety of freshly baked buns, loafs, puffs and egg tarts. It only has two outlets in Singapore which are Suntec City Mall and Jurong Point. Let's take a closer look at what I have purchased from this bakery.

Yong Soon You Tiao @ Food Republic VivoCity

VivoCity is also known as one of the largest shopping mall in Singapore. The mall has great architecture, facilities, shops, food establishments and so much more. Right at the top most level beside the SkyPark and Sentosa Express station is a popular food court called Food Republic which serves a wide variety of local dishes and snacks. One particular stall that caught my attention was Yong Soon You Tiao which is a stall selling Soya Bean drinks, Beancurd and a range of fried dough fritters. Let's have a look at some of their offerings.

The MacRitchie Reservoir

Singapore has various water catchment areas around the island. These water catchment areas are areas whereby rainwater will be collected and made into fresh and clean water for Singaporeans. It's also one of the National Taps of Singapore. In today's article, I am going to give you a walkthrough of one of Singapore's famous water catchment area/reservoir known as MacRitchie Reservoir formerly known as The Impounding Reservoir and Thomson Road Reservoir. Previously, I have written about Bedok Reservoir Park which is another water catchment area/reservoir in Singapore. The previous article was one of the most popular articles for Frenzeelo so I thank you for your support. Anyway, let's continue with my write up of the MacRitchie Reservoir.

Popeyes Chicken @ Square 2

Fried Chicken must be one of the most popular comfort food in Singapore. There are lots of places to find fried chicken in Singapore from fast food restaurants to food kiosks to hawker centres to food courts and so much more. There are literally thousands of places to get delicious hot and crispy fried chicken that's satisfyingly good in the island of Singapore. In today's article, I am going to talk about the fried chicken and my experience at Popeyes Chicken at Square 2. Square 2 is a mall in the Novena area and it's just right beside Novena Square (AKA Velocity) which is another shopping mall and it's much older. It links to nearby hospitals such as Tan Tock Seng Hospital, Novena Medical Center, Novena Specialist Center and Mount Elizabeth Novena Hospital. After eating so much fried chicken, you might want to check out your cholesterol level at any of the neighbouring hospitals. It's also directly connected to Novena MRT Station on the North South Line.

Pizza Hut @ Heartland Mall Kovan

About a few months ago, I wrote an article about Singapore's Pizza Hut Delivery service and what I ordered. Since Pizza Hut is also popular with its restaurants, in today's article, I am going to do a write-up of my experience at a Pizza Hut restaurant and what I ate at the outlet in Heartland Mall Kovan. Heartland Mall Kovan is a relatively small shopping mall with a lot indie shops. The anchor tenant is Cold Storage Supermarket and has a wide variety of food and beverage outlets like KFC, Yoshinoya, Old Chang Kee, Pizza Hut and more. Heartland Mall Kovan is located in Hougang South also known as Kovan City.

6 Best Rooftop Gardens to Visit in Singapore (VIDEO) (UPDATE)


When you see the words, 'Rooftop Garden', I am sure you will immediately recognise one of the most iconic rooftop garden in Singapore which is the Marina Bay Sands SkyPark right? Marina Bay Sands isn't the only place with a nice rooftop garden but there are also other places in Singapore where you can visit very nice rooftop gardens with lots of greenery, a water play area, a playground, outdoor shops and so much more. In this article, I'm going to show which are the best rooftop gardens in Singapore in my opinion. Do note that the Marina Bay Sands SkyPark isn't featured because all the rooftop gardens I featured here are free to access.

Underground Shopping at Marina Bay Link Mall

You may have heard about CityLink Mall which is Singapore's first underground shopping mall. Opened in 2000 and located in the Marina Centre area, the CityLink Mall has a wide range of popular shops and food outlets. Plus, it's directly connected to two MRT stations which are City Hall MRT Station and Esplanade MRT Station. However, in today's post, I'll be talking more about the Marina Bay Link Mall which is one of the newest underground shopping malls and it's located in the Raffles Place and the Marina Bay area. The Marina Bay Link Mall is a competitor to CityLink Mall although the developers of the mall don't see it that way. Compared to its competitor, the Marina Bay Link Mall has fewer people and most of the shops found here can't be found in other places around Singapore. Furthermore, it mainly caters to the working people working there and it's directly connected to Raffles Place MRT Station and Downtown MRT Station (opens in 2013).

Checkin' Out The Singapore Flyer Building

When you visit the Marina Bay and the Marina Centre area, I can bet you that you can find a ferris wheel type of thing from afar. That ferris wheel thing is actually the Singapore Flyer, also known as one of the world's largest observation wheel. It's like a ferris wheel that you can find in carnivals but an observation wheel is bigger, taller and has 'capsules' which are air-conditioned and gives a panoramic view of the whole city of Singapore. In today's article, I'm going to give you a tour of the Singapore Flyer building. The actual ride itself will be done on a later date.
