Gudetama Cafe Singapore

I have egg-citing news: the eggs-quisite Gudetama Cafe Singapore is opening tomorrow on 30 November! I attended the media preview yesterday and it was everything I eggs-pected and more. The decor and food are eggs-actly what a Gudetama fan wants to see in a Gudetama cafe.

Some theme restaurants can look very good but the food may be a total letdown. Fortunately, Gudetama Cafe Singapore is by the people behind The Soup Spoon and Joe & Dough so the food is very decent. Also, Little Miss Bento is the co-creator of the menu and food styling so the food looks as good as it tastes. Will let the pictures do the talking so you can see how eggs-traordinary the place is.

Tribal Tempo at Gardens by the Bay

Tribal Tempo is the first large-scale South African floral display in Singapore and we dropped by Gardens by the Bay a few weeks ago to check it out. We were simply fascinated with the breathtakingly beautiful proteas, calla lilies and gerberas. David was there with us too and he was more fascinated with the animal sculptures than anything else though.

It was surprising to learn that the arid parts of southern Africa has one of the largest and richest diversity of succulent plants in the world. Some 40 per cent of the world’s succulents grow in southern Africa! Since it is located in the southern hemisphere, spring in South Africa is between August to mid-October and the wildflowers of Namaqualand blossom during this period. And some of these wildflowers are what we often see (and buy) in the florists in Singapore!
