The newly revamped Changi Chapel & Museum (CCM) features new content and artefacts presented in an intimate and engaging format to tell the story of the prisoners of war and civilians interned in Changi prison camp during the Japanese Occupation. As part of the revamp, the National Museum of Singapore which manages CCM has been collecting stories and personal objects from families of former internees that emphasise their personal experiences. The museum’s narrative is centred on remembrance and reflection, encouraging visitors to contemplate both the hardships that the internees underwent, as well as their courage and resilience in the face of difficulties.
This chapel is modelled after St George’s Church, one of the numerous churches built by the prisoners of war (POWs) in Changi during their internment. It was started by Reverend Eric Cordingly, who presided over it for the rest of the war. The furnishings for the church were painstakingly handcrafted or scavenged by the POWs.
As the POWs were moved across Singapore and Thailand, St George’s Church moved with them. A second version of the church was built at Kanchanaburi when POWs were sent to work on the Thai-Burma Railway, and two more versions were rebuilt at Changi Gaol by the returning POWs. In all of its iterations, the church continued to provide hope and comfort to the men who attended its services.
Touted as the ones responsible for popularising the ‘Cruffin’ hybrid—a flaky, sugar-dusted and cream- filled croissant baked in the shape of a muffin—San Francisco-based bakery Mr Holmes Bakehouse, together with Singapore- based lifestyle company Caerus Holding, have set their sights on a fresh start for the brand with its first Southeast Asia flagship slated to open in Singapore.
Strategically located on the ground floor, in a street-facing unit at Pacific Plaza to entice passers-by along Orchard Road with the waft of curious fresh bakes, the bakery-café is scheduled for opening come June 2021.
Prominently situated on the ground floor of Pacific Plaza, the new flagship is a 41-seater bakery-café facing the commuter street to welcome guests through an inviting storefront that is synonymous with the Mr Holmes Bakehouse experience. Custom designed with a signature scheme of white and pink, fans who have been to its stores worldwide will be thrilled to witness the returning “I got baked” and peace neon signages for photo-worthy backdrops, cut-out tinted windows to press their noses against, and rows of fresh bakes on display in an open-seating space flanked with white-tiled walls and an all-pink ceiling for a convivial pastry wonderland.
For its introduction to Singapore, the opening menu is set to feature a selection of bakes which include all manner of donuts, croissants and the cruffins that put them on the global map. In their commitment to staying true to the brand’s DNA and experience from end to end, pastry chefs from the original flagship are specifically flown in from the USA to guide their local counterparts in everything across pastry crafting techniques, recipe development and operation protocols. All handcrafted with a reference to traditional baking techniques, the hallmark of what makes Mr Holmes Bakehouse stand out is their modern playfulness and embracing stance toward creativity. Conveyed through a quarterly seasonal menu, fans and pastry lovers can look forward to tearing into a new array of delectable bakes every three months so the team gets to explore new ideas in keeping the selection exciting for customers.
Pizza Fabbrica is an authentic Italian wood-fired pizzeria and bar located in vibrant Kampong Glam. They serve up traditional recipes in a modern setting.
Their pizzas are done Neapolitan style, they are fired in the wood fire oven (burning at around 450-500 degrees celcius) for no more than 90 seconds, giving the crust that authentic “leopard spotted” char and the smoky-ness.
All their pizzas are hand stretched, and thus are thin in the center with a crust that is crisp on the outside whilst being fluffily soft inside. They top their pizza with raw San Marzano tomato sauce and fresh mozzarella. The focus is well balanced crust, toppings and quality of ingredients.
These traits are typical of a Neapolitan pizza. Taste it at Pizza Fabbrica.

The Botanical Art Gallery is housed within Singapore Botanic Gardens' second refurbished conserved building, Gallop House No. 7 (Inverturret), which was built in 1906. The gallery highlights the vital role that art plays in the scientific documentation of plants in Singapore and the region, as well as how art can inspire renewed appreciation of the natural world around us. This will be Singapore’s first permanent display of botanical art, where visitors will be able to see a selection of the Singapore Botanic Gardens’ collection that includes more than 2,000 botanical paintings, as well as hundreds of sketches, line drawings and photographs. The display will also showcase various art forms, from original watercolours and ink drawings to prints and printing blocks.
Some of the iconic artwork on display includes the oldest dated painting in the Gardens’ collection completed in 1890, of Phaius tankervilleae, an orchid which grows in freshwater swamp forests, as well as an illustration of Durio singaporensis, which is commonly known as the Singapore Durian.
Visitors will also be able to try their hand at the various techniques involved in botanical illustration, such as sketching, mixing colours, and composing scenes. The activity room also offers sweeping views of the forested areas surrounding the house.
The Botanical Art Gallery will also feature changing exhibitions that complement the Gardens’ permanent artwork collection. The first show, ‘Plants in Print’, will showcase a collection of rare books that records the development of early colonial botany in South and Southeast Asia. Local artists such as Shubigi Rao and Weixin Chong have also been commissioned to offer creative responses to these books and produce a series of contemporary artworks.
Gallop House No. 5 (Atbara) is Singapore’s oldest surviving colonial era or black-and-white bungalow. Built in 1898, it now houses the Forest Discovery Centre @ OCBC Arboretum, which showcases Singapore’s forest ecosystems, and highlights the importance of conserving them. Through a series of interpretive and interactive displays, visitors can enjoy a bird's eye view of Singapore’s diverse forests, and learn about the Gardens’ historical role in conserving them. Highlights include a photographic installation of forest trees, family-friendly displays and videos featuring three distinctive forest habitats found in Singapore, and their unique flora and fauna.
The Forest Discovery Centre @ OCBC Arboretum will also host the Singapore Botanic Gardens’ Tropical Forest Ecology Research programme. This programme reprises a historical role for the Singapore Botanic Gardens, which dates back to the late 1800s. One of the Gardens’ early superintendents, Nathaniel Cantley, was tasked to survey the forests in the Straits Settlement in 1882. His report led to the demarcation of the first forest reserves in Singapore in 1884, in order to prevent the ecology and climate from further deteriorating.
Complementing the Forest Discovery Centre is the OCBC Arboretum, which is a first-of-its-kind high-tech arboretum in Southeast Asia. Opened in October 2019, the arboretum plays an important role in the Gardens’ conservation work, housing and displaying the Gardens’ growing collection of rare dipterocarps.

Crossing the Straits of Johor via a 25m-high bridge from Woodlands North Station (LRT) in Singapore to the Bukit Chagar Station in JB, the Johor Bahru – Singapore Rapid Transit System (RTS) Link will help to ease Causeway congestion, improve connectivity, foster people-to-people ties and generate shared economic and social benefits. The RTS Link will be a standalone Light Rail Transit (LRT) System with the capacity to serve up to 10,000 commuters during peak periods, for every hour and in each direction.
To facilitate a seamless travelling experience, there will be co-located Customs, Immigration and Quarantine (CIQ) facilities. Passengers travelling in either direction will clear both Singapore and Malaysia authorities at the point of departure, and need not go through immigration clearance again at the point of arrival.
The RTS Link is a 4km rail shuttle service between the Singapore terminus at Woodlands North station and the Malaysia terminus at Bukit Chagar station in Johor Bahru. It has a large capacity of up to 10,000 passengers per hour in each direction. Passengers will enjoy a fast and seamless experience travelling between Singapore and Johor Bahru on the RTS Link, and a journey time of about five minutes between the two stations. Furthermore, the Customs, Immigration, and Quarantine (CIQ) facilities of Singapore and Malaysia will be co-located at Woodlands North and Bukit Chagar stations, which means that passengers only need to clear the immigration authorities once, i.e. at their point of departure. When the RTS Link opens for service at the end of 2026, it will be a game changer that will significantly improve connectivity between Singapore and Johor Bahru and ease congestion along the Causeway.
The RTS Link Woodlands North Station will be constructed underground at a maximum depth of 28 metres. There will be three stories, with two basement levels and an underground linkway to the CIQ building. The RTS Link Woodlands North Station and CIQ building are approximately 10 times the size of a typical MRT station. These facilities will be adjacent to Thomson-East Coast Line (TEL) Woodlands North MRT station and be seamlessly connected via an underground concourse. The tunnels will be connected to the viaduct that crosses the Straits of Johor at a height of 25 metres.

Hollywood’s favourite burger joint, Fatburger is excited to announce the launch of its newest outlet at The Star Vista on 17 December 2020. Coming right up on the tails of its world’s first lifestyle concept store that was officially opened earlier in November at Orchard Cineleisure: Fatburger currently boasts five stores in Singapore since its inaugural inception in 2017. Diners can expect Fatburger’s full range of signature thick burgers, juicy buffalo wings and hand-scooped ice cream milkshakes to be transported to the City of Angels this holiday season!
Rising up amidst a pandemic, Fatburger opened three new outlets in quick succession this year. A trailblazer and innovator, the Halal-certified fast-casual restaurant is headed up by Chief Executive Officer of Deelish Brands, Mohamed “Moe” Ibrahim who wears many hats – an American businessman, hotelier and restauranteur. Switching tracks from Finance and Asset Management to become a serial F&B entrepreneur, Mr. Ibrahim is taking Halal cuisine where no one has gone before with the mission to “bring the world’s most loved, trusted and fastest growing restaurant brands to Southeast Asia,” starting with Fatburger.
Deelish Brands plugs the market gap in Singapore’s F&B sector for a trendy, fast-casual restaurant concept expanded for the large and growing Halal community in Southeast Asia. Fatburger, its pioneering project which has quickly gain popularity and is a leading fast-causal burger chain in Singapore; was inspired by Mr. Ibrahim's American counterparts and their fast-casual restaurant concept for fuss-free and hearty meals. Having captivated the hearts and taste buds of consumers in Singapore’s competitive F&B industry with its strong 100% local supply chain, Mr Ibrahim affirms that the key to sustainable competitive advantage is speedy innovation rather than past success.
Guzman Y Gomez's 12th outlet is now open at Our Tampines Hub! At Guzman Y Gomez, their passion is creating delicious food out of real ingredients. Up to 24 hour marinades, chip-tasting sessions and chillies really get them going! They don’t take shortcuts in their restaurants - they use fresh ingredients and authentic techniques. It’s not always easy, but it’s always worth it.
Guzman Y Gomez burst onto the Australian dining scene in 2006, a time when quality Mexican cuisine could scarcely be found Down Under. One of the earliest ‘gourmet to go’ brands in Australia, it was the brainchild of New York native Steven Marks who saw a gap in the local market for the authentic Mexican food he had been brought up with and loved so much.
With a menu built on traditional Mexican flavours made from only the best ingredients, the brand is a celebration of all things Latin – the food, the music, the art and the personality!
Restaurant Euphoria by Chef Jason Tan is an extraordinary fine dining destination where joyful and imprinting memories are forged through its Gastro-Botanica journey.
In 2014, Jason created Gastro-Botanica, an original culinary philosophy showcasing carefully sourced and prepared premium vegetables, meats and seafood, where prominence and elaboration are given to botanical elements of vegetables, tubers, herbs, spices, and fruits.
Through it, Jason found the relentless impetus to innovate, push boundaries, and reimagine existing conventions. While in Restaurant Euphoria, Gastro-Botanica illuminates its every aspect, from concept and design to cuisine and tableware.
Located on vibrant Tras Street in a conserved shophouse, Restaurant Euphoria is the quintessential stage for Gastro-Botanica. Its interior recalls a lush indoor garden of creeping foliage and streaming light; natural colours and finishes; and striking visual evocations of the Onion – Jason’s signature vegetable. The first sight of the Cévennes onion sparked in Jason a passion for edible botanicals. And now its pliant luminous layers have become a metaphor for his own personal quest to always ‘peel away’ to new discoveries and breakthroughs.
Throughout his career and to satiate his curious mind and natural wanderlust, Jason travelled widely, eating and exploring the foods of the world. He combined these insights with his Asian roots and a deepening passion for botanicals to create Gastro-Botanica in 2014. Jason raised Gastro-Botanica to an exquisiteness that saw him lauded as the first and only Singaporean chef to receive both a ranking on Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants from 2016 to 2020, and one Michelin star from 2016 to 2019, during his tenure as Chef and Co-owner of the Corner House.
Served to dignitaries such as Singapore’s Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, China’s President Xi Jinping, the President of South Korea, the Prime Minister of Israel, the Sultan of Brunei and the Prince of Johor, Gastro-Botanica became synonymous with Jason as a trailblazing chef.
Intent on taking Gastro-Botanica further, Jason elevated its practices and principles, creating a cuisine that gave even more prominence and significance to botanical elements; and in the process stretching the limits of French gastronomy. He calls it Gastro-Botanica 2.0, and made it the raison d’etre for Restaurant Euphoria.

Expect only quality offerings at Fatburger that are free from artificial flavourings. Fatburger takes pride on using only fresh, never frozen, farm-to-table chicken, and locally-sourced artisanal breads, which are baked fresh daily.

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.
A 5.6m high waterfall takes centre stage in the newly-rejuvenated Yunnan Garden at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore that now seamlessly integrates with the Chinese Heritage Centre and an expanded Nanyang Lake. Comprising themed mini gardens and nature trails, the new space is now even more inviting for students, staff and nearby Jurong residents to visit and explore the various scenic spots it has to offer.
Built in the 1950s, the Yunnan Garden was a key attraction of the Nanyang University campus, the land on which NTU Singapore is now situated. With the just-completed revitalisation effort, the Yunnan Garden is seamlessly integrated with the Chinese Heritage Centre and an expanded Nanyang Lake. More than 1,000 new trees comprising over 80 species have been planted in the Garden, enriching its biodiversity. Other enrichments include a new 5.6-metre-tall waterfall, themed mini gardens, a boardwalk, a new stormwater management system, and Wi-Fi connectivity throughout the Garden.
The result is a 9-hectare heritage precinct – bigger than 12 soccer fields – that preserves the Garden’s legacy while enriching it as an educational and recreation hub, making it a go-to place not just for the NTU community, but also for the residents who live in the wider Jurong neighbourhood.
NTU Students’ Union President Bryan Michael Chiew Sen, a second-year Public Policy and Global Affairs student from the School of Social Sciences, said: “The new amenities in the Yunnan Garden are a refreshing addition to what we traditionally know as a heritage area with historical significance. With the rejuvenation, the Garden is now an invigorating break away from the classroom, and an attractive spot for students to have social gatherings. The spruced up greenery makes the Garden good for deep conversations and long strolls, which I’m certain will be beneficial for students’ mental well-being.”
Learning about plants and the environment is also part and parcel of a walk in the Yunnan Garden, which is designed around sustainability principles. The plant varietals in the mini gardens have been carefully chosen for their educational values, be it for their use as renewable energy sources or as sustainable alternatives to plastics, or their ability to remove pollutants from the air, soil and water.
The water features in the Garden are designed to create a stormwater management system that purifies rainwater before releasing it into larger ponds and reservoirs through drains and canals.
Integrating these lessons into the Yunnan Garden experience is part of NTU’s commitment to raising awareness about environmental sustainability.

GrabFood commits to merchants’ growth through a merchant platform and launches GrabKitchen in Hillview with over 10 F&B brands, including 3 virtual restaurants and the latest GrabFood Hub.
Based on consumer surveys and insights derived from the Grab app, consumers in Northwest Singapore wanted greater variety of healthy foods, burgers and local foods. Specifically in Bukit Batok, bubble tea, mala, and soup were not only the most frequently searched for items on GrabFood, but also saw significantly higher consumer demand than merchant supply. When it comes to cuisine types, Japanese, Indian and Thai were the most sought after in the area.
To address this gap, GrabFood brought an eclectic mix of over 10 F&B brands into its first GrabKitchen in Singapore, offering a wide selection of food options. GrabKitchen features:
10 restaurants including three new virtual restaurants namely Lady Boss Mala by the founder of Thai Dynasty; Waboru by JR Group as well as Tiffin Walla by Co-Kitchens.
The 6th GrabFood Hub which brings popular hawker food, coveted FMCG and packaged food brands such as Asia Pacific Breweries’ Heineken and Tiger beers anddangerously addictive salted egg snacks by Irvins, which has taken Singapore and the larger Southeast Asia by storm.
Beverages by Playmade, one of Singapore’s bubble tea darlings who has made its first foray into the West with GrabKitchen.
Consumers in surrounding Hillview districts such as Cashew, Bukit Batok, Bukit Gombak and Toh Tuck can have food and drink options delivered on-demand to their door via the Grab app, while those who do not mind taking a short walk to GrabKitchen can opt to dine-in at the location or choose the self pickup option in-app to save on delivery fees. For variety, consumers can order from multiple GrabKitchen merchants in a single order so every one gets to have whatever tickles their fancy. Find out more about the launch og GrabKitchen here.
If you live in or near Bukit Gombak and love gardening, you can apply for 70 allotment gardening plots at the new Bukit Gombak Park which will be opened in early 2020. Applications will be open for online application from 5 January 2020, 10am to 19 January 2020, 10pm. The park is located at Bukit Batok West Avenue 5, opposite Bukit Batok Driving Centre. Plots will be allocated by computerised balloting.
To foster a love for gardening, NParks introduced the Allotment Gardening Scheme as part of their Community in Bloom (CIB) programme. CIB is a nationwide gardening movement which aims to bring together residents, young and old, in creating community gardens. With Allotment Gardens situated near HDB residential estates, these plots are widely accessible to the community. Today, more than 1,000 allotment gardening plots have been introduced in 11 parks islandwide.
Attention all burger-lovers, cult-favourite American burger joint, Five Guys has opened its first Singapore store at Plaza Singapura.
Occupying a space of over 460 sqm, the outlet at Plaza Singapura is located along a prime stretch on the ground floor of the mall overlooking the Orchard Road belt. Currently comprising an indoor area that seats up to 52 patrons, the store will eventually also house an outdoor seating area that will increase the outlet’s capacity to accommodate up to over 160 patrons.
The Singapore store is the global burgers and fries joint’s first franchise in Asia, and the latest addition to Zouk Group’s growing food and beverage portfolio as part of its lifestyle expansion plans.
“After many months of planning, we’re thrilled to finally unveil the very first Five Guys store in Singapore. Five Guys is an exciting addition to our portfolio, and we were fortunate to be presented with an opportune space in the city that is highly accessible, so that fans of Five Guyscan come together to enjoy their favourite burgers with ease. This first outlet will be the bedrock upon which we grow the brand in Singapore, and we look forward to more to come,” says Andrew Li, Chief Executive Officer of Zouk Group.
Five Guys is a family run burgers & fries joint offering a mouth-watering menu made from scratch. Five Guys has been a Washington, D.C. area favorite since 1986 when Jerry and Janie Murrell offered sage advice to three of the Murrell brothers: “Start a business or go to college.” The business route won and the Murrells opened a carry-out burger joint in Arlington, Virginia, USA. Under the guidance of Jerry and Janie, the little burger joint quickly developed a cult-like following. Customers voted the burger “#1” in the D.C. metro area.
During the 1980s and 1990s, the Murrells perfected their simple concept. Five Guys became The Place to get a fresh, juicy burger with all the toppings you could stuff between two fresh-baked buns. Two more brothers joined the team and as the family grew, so did the business. Early in 2003, Jerry and Janie, together with the “Five Guys”, began offering franchise opportunities. In just under 18 months, more than 300 units had been sold.
Now, decades after FIVE GUYS first opened, there are locations across North America, Europe, the Middle East and Asia, with planned expansion into Australia, Africa, Central and South America. By maintaining a simple ethos, coupled with the highest quality, the Murrells continue to follow through on the vision they outlined in 1986.
Five Guys’ mission is to redefine the global burger landscape by focusing on freshness and quality. With no freezers and no microwaves, it is built on the premise that all burgers and fries are made fresh every day. The meat is a perfected 80/20 lean-to-fat ratio. Patties are hand-made seven days a week on site. The bread, which is Five Guys’ only proprietary item, is baked fresh five days a week in a locally contracted bakery. The same unique recipe is used globally. Potatoes are cut fresh daily, soaked to remove the starch and double-fried in pure, no cholesterol peanut oil to create the firm exterior and fluffy ‘mashed-potato’ interior that Five Guys fries are known for.

By 2023, national servicemen will be able to access all their National Service (NS)- and training-related activities in a one-stop centre.
The NS Hub just marked the start of construction in a groundbreaking ceremony officiated by Defence Minister Dr Ng Eng Hen recently.
With the NS Hub, national servicemen will no longer have to report to various camps across Singapore for different NS services.
The new NS Hub will house the Central Manpower Base (CMPB), Military Medicine Institute (MMI) and a new Fitness Conditioning Centre (FCC) to meet all the services that pre-enlistees and Operationally Ready National Servicemen (NSmen) need.
It will even include an e-Mart for NSmen to stock up on their combat boots and admin t-shirts!
Currently, pre-enlistees attend medical screening at CMPB at Depot Road, and head to MMI in Kent Ridge for other specialist medical services. NSmen take their Individual Physical Proficiency Tests (IPPTs) at various locations such as Maju Camp and Bedok Camp.
Once complete, the NS Hub will be directly accessible via an overhead bridge from Cashew MRT Station along Upper Bukit Timah Road.
Gone are the long queues to "book in", as national servicemen visiting the NS Hub will be able to register themselves at e-Kiosks equipped with facial recognition technology. They will also be able to perform digital transactions through the NS Hub visitor mobile app and receive personalised responses about their appointments. Such technology is expected to reduce the overall waiting time for medical screenings by 30 per cent!
IPPT will be made more convenient for servicemen. Without having to "book in" to camp, servicemen will be able to do automated In-Processing at the NS Hub’s FCC. They can then simply walk up to the gym for their IPPT Preparatory Training or head to the sheltered running track to take their IPPT. Facing the Rail Corridor, the FCC will be the Singapore Armed Forces’ first purpose-built, all-weather facility for IPPT and fitness training.
Not unlike SAFRA Clubhouses, the NS Hub may well become a go-to spot for national servicemen to relax with their family and friends. The hub will feature a wide range of amenities that are open to the public – these include a food court, a childcare center and an outdoor community area with a running track and football field. For those into live entertainment, the NS Hub will also house the Power 98 Love Songs and 88.3JIA radio stations where visitors can catch their favourite radio DJs live on air. There will also be studios for the public to catch performances.
Visitors to the new NS Hub will be glad to know that the building will make use of renewable energy – energy generated from its solar panels can power more than 110 4-room HDB units a year! The building will also adopt energy-saving solutions such as the use of natural ventilation and solar shades for cooling. The NS Hub will make use of rainwater harvesting to collect non-potable water for irrigation and other purposes.

Ramen Champion is proud to announce that it will now house Gyumaru at its Bugis+ enclave. Gyumaru is the first ramen restaurant in Singapore to serve Gyukotsu Ramen (beef bone ramen), which is a rare dish in the ramen world.
A riff on the popular tonkotsu, the fully emulsified broth of the Gyukotsu Ramen boasts a clear consistency and a pronounced piquant flavour of beef fat. Relish the palate-enveloping note of the beef broth, which is made with beef bone and oxtail. The entire preparation takes two days to complete — the broth is first boiled for nine hours, before it is cooled and refrigerated for it to set into a thick and flavourful concentrate. Each beef broth cube is then simmered over low heat before it is served.
The broth is accompanied with springy thin noodles custom-made from a local Japanese noodle making specialist — for the doneness, there are two options to choose from: soft and hard. Thick tender cubes of well-marbled ribeye sourced domestically from a halal-certified supplier are placed atop the ribbons of al-dente noodles. Other ingredients including green onions and Japanese leek contribute delicate notes to the overall dish. Top the dish with the optional coriander for a local twist and additional fragrant lift!
Gyumaru is in the process of receiving its Halal certification — Muslim gourmands can very soon enjoy non-pork ramen!

Founder and CEO Clovis Young of Mad Mex sums up the ingenuity of Mad Mex’s humble but revolutionary ethos, “I started Mad Mex in 2006, because I absolutely love Mexican food, and I wanted to share that love with all of Australia, and the world. I wanted my customers to get a fast meal with homemade quality, made entirely of real ingredients. That means the fewest preservatives, oils and sugars – while always big on taste. You should never have to choose between a quick meal and quality healthy food.”

Grab some napkins and get ready to devour some seriously good chicken at Chico Loco, where the birds are always antibiotic-free, hormone-free, cage-free and organic-fed.
Before the chickens go on the spit, Chico Loco brines them for 10 hours in an umami solution featuring a touch of agave nectar. The chickens are then basted with a secret house blend of 11 herbs and spices including quintessentially Mexican ingredients like achiote, dried oregano and mustard powder for bold splashes of flavour. Over the course of an hour, the chickens are roasted before a naked flame for a luscious, smoky finish. The result? Moist, fork-tender chicken that is as tasty as it is healthy.
The Loco Group Pte Ltd owns and manages Chico Loco, Lucha Loco and Super Loco. The four partnersJulian Tan, Christian Tan (aka “The Tan Brothers”), Ajay Parag and Chef Jason Jones have also recently launched their own hot sauce, tequila and craft beer range.

From 14 January 2019, National University Hospital's outpatient paediatric services will be consolidated within a one-stop centre which was made possible through a generous gift from the estate of Khoo Teck Puat. Their new centre, NUHkids Specialist Centre, focuses on creating a therapeutic environment that is child-centric and family-friendly.
The overall ‘playscape’ design concept is inspired by nature. Studies have shown that through good play, a child’s body, mind and soul are stimulated which encourages interaction and creative development. The ‘playscape’ ethos begins from the arrival atrium. Its environment and interiors serve to provide your child and family a holistic care experience.
Their 10-storey outpatient centre is visually prominent with a lofty 14m-high arrival atrium, rising above the surrounding buildings. A clear separation of vehicular and pedestrian flow ensures a safe arrival and facilitates registration.
The spacious atrium aims to promote intuitive way finding for visitors arriving via different transports or from other buildings within the Kent Ridge campus. The linkway on the fourth level will connect the new centre to the Main Building, allowing integration with existing facilities (including inpatient facilities and services) and maximising operational efficiency for the existing and new services. The experience of each visit focuses on two essential aspects: one-stop convenience and a delighted child.
In order for paediatric consultation to be a pleasant experience for the child and the accompanying caregiver, they aim to provide a cosy and comfortable environment where stress is taken out of the visit.
Your child and family will first be greeted with an explosion of colours at their city-themed atrium. The journey to the upper storeys sees a nature-themed reception and waiting areas which will lead to the outdoor playground.
Traditional seating and room configuration are replaced by modular furniture that serve as play objects and resting areas. The sky gardens are adjacent to the waiting areas on every floor. This access to daylight and the outdoors creates a therapeutic environment integral for a healing experience.
Waiting time is translated into play time in the themed (i.e. rainforest, savannah, arctic) waiting area as the child climbs, crawls, interacts and explores the theme-inspired features within observatory vicinity of the parents.
The new centre will change the experience of a visit to the hospital for both the child as well as the accompanying caregiver.
