Porsche has opened a new car showroom on Leng Kee Road.
Built at a cost of $40 million by the Eurokars Group of companies, the new five-storey building with a basement has two showrooms; one for eight Porsche models on the first level and another for eight Rolls-Royce models on the second. Besides these two brands, Eurokars represents Mini and Mazda.
During the launch of the new showroom the new Porsche Cayman was introduced. The Porsche Cayman is a rear mid-engined, rear wheel drive 2-seat sports car produced by Porsche AG in Germany. First launched in the 2006 model year, the Cayman is a coupé derived from Porsche's second and third generation Boxster roadster.
Cayman is an alternate spelling of caiman, a reptile in the same family as the alligator. On the same day that the first Caymans arrived at dealerships for sale, Porsche adopted four caimans at Stuttgart's Wilhelma Zoo.
The brand was born of a simple need, the solution to a frustrating problem: build a case that can withstand the rigors of rough travel. Today, that aluminum case, created nearly 70 years ago is the prototype for style, sophistication and uniqueness.
The company manufactures hard-wearing travel cases and briefcases, mainly of aluminium. It was originally a metal fabrication company called Zierold Company, which in 1946 changed its name to Zero Corporation.
Erle P. Halliburton, the founder of Halliburton, had commissioned the aluminium case in 1938 from aircraft engineers because other luggage could not endure the rough travel through Texas oil fields in a pickup truck. In addition to being more durable than a leather or cloth case due to its rigidity, the aluminium case seals tightly against dust and water.
The aluminium cases have appeared in over 200 Hollywood movies and television shows, often as a MacGuffin, and in professional wrestling, most notably used by Steve McMichael and Irwin R. Schyster.
In addition to aluminium, Zero Halliburton cases are available in polycarbonate and texalium.
The design of the foodcourt is quite similar to the old Satay Club at The Esplanade, closed in 1995.
The casual-dining space spreads over 2,000 sq m, featuring eight satay pushcarts. Apart from those, 26 other carts offer seafood, barbecued chicken wings along with local delights such as hokkien mee. The 1,000 seater foodcourt is the perfect outdoor eatery that promotes energy-saving features as it is set beneath green roofs featuring natural ventilation.
Enjoy affordable delights with family and friends in this garden setting by the waterfront. From satay to chicken rice and BBQ seafood, there's something for everyone, including a selection of Halal-certified food offerings.

Think "tavern" and the mind conjures a drinking house with a convivial atmosphere, a boisterous place without pretension, where you share food and knock back drinks while exchanging salty tales and have a rollicking good time.
Shelter in the Woods reintroduces the same lively concept of a tavern, creating a gathering place to meet, dine and have bounteous drinks.
Step into this modern tavern and notice the trademark detailing of this old-world drinking house, heavy oak tables with black cast iron finishings for group seatings, a faux fireplace with a mantelpiece of tavern collectables and a bronze deer head mounted above and a long dark wood bar with high-backed stools for the lone drinker.
Expect a hearty menu of Home-made Terrines and Rillettes, country-style pork and roasted pistachio Terrine, fresh pie, country-style chicken with onion, bacon, potatoes and oven-braised Cassoulet - Cassoulet of duck confit, lamb leg, pork belly and garlic sausage, Whiff fish braised in white wine and tomato sauce "duglere" style and classic Beef Bourguignon with bacon, button mushrooms and pearl onions.
Feast your senses on the open-kitchen where a Rotisserie of crispy skin suckling pig marinated with "Aromates", baby poussin with special house- made ProvencÌ§al spice mix and layered lamb leg with tapenade olive pureÌe, garlic and rosemary are being slowly grilled to perfection. The enticing scent of meats wafting through the tavern to seduce appetites, just as French-Chinese Chef Patron has set out to do.
Shelter in the Woods boasts a collection of 26-types of house-macerated rums, made from a base of La Mauny White Rum, from the Carribean island of Martinique, all carefully and lovingly macerated by the restaurant manager, Maxime Larquier. The bar also has a vast selection of craft beers and ale for those who prefer to wash down their meals with their favoured brew.

The beautiful lush gardens of Dempsey Hill welcomes E+ Wine, a boutique wine retail shop that has been birthed by the desire to afford you a special little haven where good wines can be found within the confines of a charming and delightful environment.
It offers a stunning repertoire of genuinely great wines that have been selected by hand with love and passion where no wine in the store is considered average.
They represent a fast-growing Spanish wine movement but also include a stunning selection of Italian, French, Portuguese, and even Austrian and German wines that are worthy of well deserved attention. The wines come from very well known regions but are boutique in nature as E+ Wine works directly with vineyards that offer limited productions and very special grape harvests.
E+ Wines is a partnership between 'Iconic Wines', a Spanish / Singaporean wine distributor helmed by the Spanish Dynamic duo who are making waves in the Singapore wine scene, Ferran Riu & Jorge Padilla, and by the renowned and distinguished John Erdos of the furniture empire. Iconic Wines, extolled as Spain’s national pride, is a company that has been formed to enhance, to elevate and to exalt the original and die-hard winemakers that nobody hears about but that deserve attention. These winemakers, are the producers of extraordinary wine because they have not been affected by the big wine conglomerates that value quantity over quality. Iconic Wines provide a voice for the unheard and have even attracted the attention of Antonio Banderas who has co-invested in one of their own vineyards. Because Iconic Wines is a distributor, the prices that one may find at the shop are like Duty Free levels.
They work very closely with industry virtuosos to ensure that they stay up to date with great wines that are popular, but at the same time maintaining the unique essence of the boutique.
It is perfect for small intimate cocktails and canapé events for up to 50 people and they are happy to cater for almost all personal requests.
E+ Wines holds wine tastings on a very regular basis, by bringing you the actual winemakers in person, who have themselves worked with the wines and held the vines with their bare hands.
