Once a boarding school for the children of British soldiers, the former Kinloss House has been completely restored to its former classic beauty. This 2,400 sqm building set on 1.9 hectares of land used to be the executive training center for a major global company. The Lady Hill Road address is now used by EHL Campus in Singapore.
The property houses classrooms, meeting rooms, a large multi-purpose hall and numerous break out spaces. This location has been selected based on several factors such as potential for student life, quality and aesthetics, flexibility to accommodate modern learning formats, its peaceful environment to facilitate learning, proximity to some of the main touristic landmarks and an opportunity to offer an EHL experience with a genuinely local flavor.
The Campus is in an upscale part of Singapore, in lush natural surroundings. It is located near the Tanglin area (a wealthy residential hub), a region of the city known for its grand mansions and sweeping lawns, which now house a number of International Schools, Embassies and High Commissions.
Many shops, food courts and other attractions are a quick drive away, including Orchard Road, Singapore’s main shopping street, a few minutes away by car.
EHL Group's Campus Singapore project has been approved by the Singaporean authorities, and earned the EduTrust certification. Candidates can apply to start their Preparatory Year at the EHL Campus Lausanne in September 2020 and then begin their Bachelor course as the first cohort at EHL Campus (Singapore) in the fall of 2021.
More than 13,000 food items were raised for Food for the Heart's very first community shop at Mountbatten. The donations will supplied to 500 needy households from the Mountbatten and MacPherson neighbourhoods. At the store, beneficiaries can choose up to 12 items a month from the wide selection which is manned by volunteers.
Food from the Heart (FFTH) is a non-profit charity organization established in February 2003 after Singapore-based Austrian couple Henry and Christine Laimer read an article in The Sunday Times about bakeries discarding their unsold bread. Stirred, they then decided to channel surplus food from bakeries to those in need.
Food from the Heart has since evolved to become a resource bank, taking in non-perishable food items, toys and toiletries besides bread, whilst recycling and rechanneling whatever they can to good use.
As the need for services continue to grow, innovative programmes were added to not just alleviate hunger but also bring joy and hope, touching lives in every possible way.
An establishment steeped in culinary history, the 1-Group introduces Zorba, The Greek Taverna – a unique Greek experience that brings authentic dishes with age-old traditions from the azure Mediterranean Sea to sunny Singapore. Sitting along the waterfront of the Singapore River in Clarke Quay, Zorba aims to transport guests to a Greek isle with nourishing simplicity set along the picturesque riverbank.
Taking pride in their culinary traditions, Zorba presents a selection of crowd-pleasing dishes from appetisers, pristine seafood and meats, and tempting desserts. Rooted in Greek heritage and culture, Zorba sources its traditional ingredients direct from Greek suppliers.
A signature option at Zorba is the extensive selection of Greek’s Mixed Grill Platter ($88). This hearty sharing platter includes cheese-stuffed bifteki, pork gyros, chicken and beef souvlaki, lamb chops and Loukaniko. Perfect for sharing with friends and family of two to three, this platter, and served with a side of fried potatoes, salad, and tzatziki. Another substantial dish is the classic grilled platter of Souvlaki ($20) that showcases juicy grilled meat skewers served with chips and tzatziki salad. Zorba's version features the traditional Greek selection; Argentinean air-flown Black Angus striploin, Iberico pork, and Brazilian chicken breast. The meats are marinated for 48 hours in a proprietary blend of spices before being grilled to perfection, making for a full-flavoured and tender bite.
An all-time favourite, the Htapothi Sti Skhara ($30) features a heritage recipe from the isles of Greece. The octopus is first tenderised by hand as the chef beats it with a smooth rock, after which it is sprinkled with salt water and rubbed with the same rock in a circular motion until the tentacles curl up. The octopus is then slow grilled atop a low-burning charcoal fire with sea-salt and a squeeze of fresh lemon juice, for a delicate smoky char.
Other noteworthy grilled items include Tsipoura ($32), which utilises sea bream flown in from Greece. The ancient Greeks held the sea bream or 'Orata' (Italian for 'golden') in high regard due to the golden flecks in its eyes, and it was frequently offered to the goddess Aphrodite for its attractiveness and meaty flesh. Keeping the seasoning light and clean, the fish is drizzled with lemon, garlic and olive oil and grilled on a plancha for a meal worthy of a deity.
Aside from pristine seafood and quality cuts of meat, the Greeks are equally known for their saccharine desserts. Fit for any sweet-tooth, Greek Baklava ($12) presents a rich sweet flaky pastry made of layers of filo filled with chopped nuts and held together with honey. Another dessert staple includes Yiaourti Me Meli ($8) - Greek yoghurt with lashes of honey and crunchy walnuts.
Along with the great tasting food, Zorba also serves Katogi Averoff wines from Metsovo by the bottle to further enhance the Mediterranean experience.
