Founded in 2018, Pâtisserie CLÉ (CLÉ is French for ‘key’) was created by local pastry chefs Germaine Li (left) and Joy Chiam (right) as a way to realise their approach to French desserts -- where fresh produce and flavours are the means of invoking comfort and delight in equal measures.
Germaine and Joy first met as students at the internationally-renowned culinary institute Ferrandi Paris in 2016 to do their diploma in French pastry arts. During their course of study, Germaine worked at Patisserie Yann Couvreur. At the same time, Joy worked at the five-star luxury Hotel Le Burgundy where she worked with the pastry team to create desserts for the one-Michelin-star Restaurant Le Baudelaire and Le Charles cafe.
Back in Singapore, both continued their pastry careers in renowned restaurants. Germaine spent time at the now three-Michelin-star restaurant Les Amis while Joy worked at the three-Michelin-star Joël Robuchon Restaurant.

Golden Village Multiplex (GV), Singapore’s leading cinema exhibitor, has answered the call of the residents of Bedok, with the opening of its new 576-seat multiplex at the new Djitsun Mall Bedok, where the iconic Princess Theatre once stood. They also introduced a new local curry-flavoured popcorn which is sold exclusively at GV Bedok as GV pays homage to local food culture.
From Hollywood blockbusters to inspiring independent films, patrons of the new six- theatre multiplex can look forward to razor-sharp laser projection combined with pristine sound, from the unparalleled comfort of GV Bedok’s leatherette seats – all within the immediate vicinity of their homes, as the company continues its steadfast commitment to delivering the finest cinematic experience in Singapore.
GV Bedok will cater to the demand among residents for a cineplex in a neighbourhood that was once home to a cluster of four cinemas in the 1990s. Since the closing of the Princess Theatre 10 years ago, residents of Bedok have eagerly awaited the return of a movie theatre to Singapore’s most densely populated neighbourhood, home to some 300,000 residents.
In a homage to this renowned food haven in the Eastern part of Singapore, which is famed for its traditional hawker dishes, Golden Village has launched a new localised curry-flavoured gourmet popcorn in tandem with the opening of its new cinema. The flavour is exclusively available at GV Bedok for three months from GV Bedok’s opening. In addition, GV will introduce three other gourmet popcorn flavours – Seaweed Wasabi, Caramel, and Cheese – across its cinemas island-wide.
Continuing its enthusiasm for culinary delights and support of local brands, GV is also working with homegrown F&B chain Saybons to offer cinemagoers a wholesome spread of hot soups, pastas and light bites at GV Bedok.
The recently unveiled integrated complex in Bedok, Heartbeat@Bedok, was designed to incorporate amenities that cater to all age groups, providing family-friendly facilities. Parents with kids, grandchildren and grandparents can all come together as families to enjoy themselves in a single location.
Built upon a formerly forested site, it is apt that the main theme of Heartbeat@Bedok is greenery. Every floor plate is bordered with greenery, seemingly enveloping the building within a park’s forest. The multiple layering of plants, trees, shrubs and ground cover simulate a terraced landscape on the south façade, acting as privacy and acoustic screens from the neighbouring residential units. Heartbeat@Bedok’s unique design has also caught the eye internationally and it has won numerous architectural awards both home and abroad.
Bringing multiple services together under one roof, Heartbeat@Bedok is one of Singapore’s largest integrated complexes - it occupies 2.1 hectares or the size of about three football fields. The building houses several facilities such as a community centre, sport centre, polyclinic, senior care centre, a public library, as well as food & beverage outlets and shops.
The new Bedok Public Library is among a suite of community services provided at the new integrated complex, Heartbeat@Bedok. It covers an area of 4,150 square metres spread across the 2nd and 3rd storey at Heartbeat@Bedok and serves residents in the South East areas of Bedok North, Bedok Reservoir, Bedok South, Frankel, Kaki Bukit and Kembangan.
The themes of nature, landscape and greenery feature prominently in Heartbeat@Bedok and within the library itself. The pillar wraps, colours and design in the library include landscape elements inspired by nature.

The Alps Residences is an upcoming sophisticated development inspired by the Swiss Alps where tranquility and serenity meet.

Better known as the Hamptons, the Long Island towns of Southampton and East Hampton in New York are the playgrounds of America’s rich and famous. Palatial summer homes are the order of the day in a region where you’ll find some of the country’s most expensive zip codes. It's basically the opposite of everything you’d associate with Bedok. According to a new heritage trail, however, the humble corner of eastern Singapore bore an uncanny resemblance to the Hamptons in the early 20th century.
Launched by the National Heritage Board (NHB) as part of the ongoing Singapore HeritageFest, the Bedok Heritage Trail will transport you back in time to the era before the development of the East Coast area; a time when the colony’s wealthiest inhabitants resided in waterfront bungalows alongside fishing villages. With 10 markers spread along a 15km route, you’ll discover Bedok’s long history, from its kampung beginning to its key role in the East Coast Reclamation Scheme.
From pirates to beach parties, fishing villages to coconut plantations, the story of the eastern coast of Singapore shares many common threads with coastal settlements across the world. At the same time, the intertwined histories of Bedok, Siglap, Tanah Merah and the East Coast are unique in many ways.
From the ancient days when Orang Laut fleets looked upon the red cliffs of Tanah Merah as a navigational guide, through the era of colonisation, all the way to Singapore's independence and present day, the area’s transformative journey is told through the branching stories of Bedok and the East Coast in this Bedok Heritage Trail.
