The 24-hour and 26-year-old Mustafa Centre on Syed Alwi Road in Little India has been extended and renovated.
The result includes a posh roof garden restaurant on the seventh floor of a new nine-storey annex. Boasting a glass dome roof and lush greenery, Mustafa's garden restaurant serves North Indian, South Indian and Chinese cuisine and seats 400!
A bakery on the second floor has also just opened.
The glossy new wing, complete with a fancy steel facade, was completed in September last year and opened in January. It is connected to the older building by a second-floor walkway. The extension is part of efforts to attract a younger crowd while retaining its regulars.It is located on the site of an office- cum-residence next door that was purchased, then demolished in 2008.
The electronics department has also been extended, along with the pharmacy and household sections. A carpark takes up levels 4 and 5 and part of level 3.
Food-lovers will be thrilled by the expanded supermarket on the second floor of the new wing. It makes Little India the place to go, not just for curries, but also for food from all over the world ranging from lychee-flavoured honey to frozen french fries.

The aim is to attract people from all walks of life and with all sorts of tastes, by giving them 'variety at affordable prices'.
Newly imported Sri Lankan crabs, for instance, are now bestsellers. The crustaceans are bigger than those sold elsewhere, with most at Mustafa weighing between 1 and 2kg each.

As well as a wider range of food, the spiffy supermarket now has wider aisles. The new wing brings the total size of Mustafa Centre to 24,000 sq m.

Traditional Persian cuisine is an acquired taste, but nevertheless will settle in nicely once one is used to the initially strong flavour of fresh herbs. It takes a mere first visit to warrant continual returns to the restaurant when diners discover their liking for more exotic Middle Eastern fare. Persian Garden Restaurant offers unique standalone Iranian cuisine which appeals to the more adventurous palates and those seeking a change in cuisine types.
Persian cuisine is a unique blend of herbs and spices: garlic, onion, saffron, plums, prunes, diced limes, cinnamon and parsley. Like a Persian rug, it is colourful yet complex to taste-buds unaccustomed to Middle Eastern fare. However, most dishes settle in quite nicely after two mouthfuls. The menu provides for an affordable range of kebabs and specialty dishes.
Chef Hoshang who lords it over the Persian Garden kitchen, took up the challenge to define and create dishes that are inspired by the persian, whether in the Iran, in Asia or elsewhere. Thanks to his years of experience working with top chefs.
Chef Hoshang confidently whipped up a stellar menu that offered a blending of persian flavors and ingredients. If there is a common theme to his most creative dishes, though, it is his love for for persian flavors that comes through in surprising, yet comforting style. Chef Hoshang does not limit his repertoire to iranian dishes, but brings the persian theme around the world by combining familiar flavors in fresh manner.

Mandai Orchid Garden as we know it will be no more as it has to move from its current location. It will be moving to Kranji by the middle of this year
The 60-year old garden is one of the oldest in South East Asia. The 4ha garden has some 50,000 orchid plants comprising over 100 varieties. However, the move will not be as big as the size indicates: because the new site for the garden, just 0.8ha will be able to house only 5,000 of the orchids, a 10th of the collection.
Mandai Orchid Garden was started in 1951 by the late John Laycock, a founder of the Orchid Society of Southeast Asia (OSSEA), and continued under him until his death in 1960. He purchased five acres of land on which to grow his ever-increasing collection of orchids. He leased a further five acres of land for commercial cut flower growing, this land and more forms the Mandai Orchid Garden today.
Since 1961, Mandai Orchid Garden has been recognised by the Singapore Tourism Board as a tourist attraction. The Garden is internationally known and attracts up to 200,000 visitors yearly. One of the main highlights of the garden is our showcasing of how orchids were cultivated in the olden days; that is grown on open beds on the ground. A number of plants from John Laycock's original collection are still maintained, though many were lost during World War II.
A wide variety of orchids are displayed in massed beds out in the open. The sloping hillside on which the beds are laid out is a stunning view to behold when the plants are in full bloom.
The attraction of the garden has grown eclectically to include the famous Water Garden, organic herb and spice enclosure, a fruit orchard, and a hydroculture plant tour and propagation garden. We hope that as many of these amazing features can be replicated at the smaller new site in Kranji.
Blu Kouzina was born out of the founders' love of sharing a hearty meal with friends, spiced with quality olive oil and accompanied with good wine. By marrying their passion for the food of their native Greece and the family's signature olive oil, Effie and Dennis Tsakiris created a warm environment in a four-storey building in a plush residential area on Bukit Timah road that will take you through a short trip to Greece.
On the ground floor, the open kitchen is a hive of activity where the chefs are preparing both traditional and modern Greek recipes with the freshest of ingredients, some especially flown from Greece. A staircase in the back -- past the chef's table and shelves displaying not only the different varieties of the family's extra virgin 'Green Gold' olive oil but also other Greek products that are key to the flavors you'll experience at the restaurant -- leads to a spacious sitting area on the second floor.
Clean lines and traditional blue and white colors drawn from the palette of a beach 'taverna' dominate here.
An outdoor sitting area at the front will transport you to the white-washed alleys of a Greek island while in the 'ouzeri' soon opening on the thrid floor one can enjoy a platter of 'meze' with a glass of 'ouzo' -- Greece's distinct anise-seed liquor -- in a rustic, mountain village.
The Chinese New Year will bring about a new chapter for Dover Park Hospice when it expands its services and facilities at a cost of $2.5 million. The three-storey building at 10 Jalan Tan Tock Seng will have 10 more beds in four single rooms and three two-bed rooms, raising its bed capacity from the current 40.
Further expansion is not possible at the current site because of space constraints. The hospice is also hiring another six nurses to add to the current staff strength of 21 nurses, four doctors, a medical social worker, a counsellor, eight care employees and a part-time music therapist. Preparations for the new beds are underway, and the foreign nurses who occupied dormitories on the top floor are moving out.
The dormitory space will be turned into offices, which are now on the lower floors. The space on the lower floors will, in turn, be used for the new beds. A multi-purpose room and another one for prayers will also be refurbished to create more single rooms for patients. The walls will be repainted from the current white and orange to something more soothing. The hospice's expansion will be a small boost to the palliative care sector, which serves about 1,200 inpatients a year, according to the Health Ministry.
Dover Park Hospice opened in September 1995 with 40 beds. It has an annual operating cost of $4 million, of which 35 per cent is paid for by government subsidies, half by fund-raising events and donations and 15 per cent from patients' fees. Patients pay $210 per day, of which $160 can be drawn from Medisave. About a third of the patients are fully subsidised.

Inspired by the fascinating flavours and smells of Spain, Turkey, Lebanon, Greece and Morocco, our food is perfumed with the spices and aromatics from these far-away, exotic places.
Their philosophy is to take advantage of ingredients when they are at their best. For this reason, their menu changes according to what’s fresh in the marketplace in order to showcase certain ingredients at their prime.
A (not so) little cafe with huge attitude. They see ourselves as rebels, challenging existing perceptions of cafe fare. As such, they go the extra mile to handcraft what goes onto your plates... lamb sausages, yoghurt cheese, even breakfast cereal.
