Chinatown Food Street Supper Reunion



We were invited to Chinatown Food Street to participate in a Chinese New Year Supper Reunion, of which Yu Sheng was served.


The ingredients and the meaning of each ingredient is very important to bring good luck and fortune in the coming New Year.


All the ingredients were added together (picture on left), we then had to use our chopsticks to mix the ingredients together (picture on right) while saying some auspicious words for health and wealth. The higher the ingredients are tossed, the more wealth and good luck will come to you for the next year.



There are are total of 24 Hawker Stalls at Chinatown Food Street, serving cuisine from different races in Singapore, and we got to sample a selection of those (pictured below).

The inaugural #BlogMeetSG



I recently attended the first #BlogMeetSG event organised by Lucy from Lulabelle Lifestyle. It was held at edit lifestyle, a lifestyle boutique located on Tanglin Road.

There was a mixture of bloggers and entrepreneurs so that we could all meet, mix and mingle. It was lovely meet the entrepreneurs and get an understanding of the passion they had behind their brand.




I was one of the lucky 25 bloggers who arrived at the event early and received this gift bag after the event. The following brands that were chosen were chosen due to their artisan nature.
