Finally There Is An "All-In-One" Restaurant That I Have Been Searching For!

| |
Hi Huneybees,

We all know that planning for a group outing can be such a hassle, don't you agree?
Even in a food paradise like Singapore, it can still be an uphill task when it comes to satisfying everyone's tummies within ONE cafe / restaurant since everybody has their own dietary requirements....


Thanks to my friend Emily, I was introduced to the place - Social Square at Parkway Parade - that might just solve the sticky problem faced by many of us from time to time!

With the addition of Ju Hao into Social Square at the beginning of this month, we can now all have Northern Chinese fare, amidst the tantalizing array of European-Japanese gourmet delights that Social Square is already serving currently!!


The decision to place the cooking counter of Ju Hao near the entrance of Social Square is a smart move as it allows the patron to be quickly introduced to this latest member of the MOF family; And in my case while walking into the spacious restaurant space, I was already welcomed by the aroma of steaming hot Xiao Long Bao-s, that immediately tickles my appetite. Yummy!

For Huneybees who are not familiar with Ju Hao's Northern Chinese offer, a glance at the menu will quickly set you on familiar ground with its widespread of La Mian Noodles, Fried Rice, Stir Fried Vegetables, Soups and even desserts!


For starter, I would highly recommend having the Pork Belly Roll With Crushed Garlic (蒜泥白肉). The slight spiciness matched with the juicy pork belly and the sesame sauce was just enough to tantalize the taste buds and get ready you for the main dishes.


Since Ju Hao's signature is the Xiao Long Bao-s, and there are a few options to the traditional minced meat version, me and my friends decided to switch things up a little by ordering the special 3 classic favourites in 1 basket.


Within the traditional streaming basket, there are two Xiao Long Bao -s of each flavour - Original, Salted Egg and Chilli Crab - that could be easily identified through the coloured tip on the top of the dumplings' skin.

I was trying to learn a skill or two through the open kitchen concept, but sadly, the lady was working so fast, she had no time for me. LOL!
Being a BIG fan of Xiao Long Bao (aka XLB), I have tasted many and I must say the offering by Ju Hao is good. Every soup dumpling is made just right as they can be easily lifted off from the steam basket by chopsticks and yet their skins are not too thick but decent enough to hold the soup and minced meat within.  

My favourite has to be the Chilli Crab ones as I give credits to Ju Hao for adding a little local flavour into this delicacy. Being the "redder" soup dumpling to its relative, you can see the redness from the shredded chilli crab peeking from underneath the skin dough and I couldn't help myself from popping the whole dumpling into my mouth after taking a little bite and sipping the delicious broth. It doesn't even require the dip into the ginger vinegar sauce!


Moving on to the main course, I would suggest trying these two dishes to fill your tummies - Prawn Fried Rice (虾仁蛋炒饭) and the Triple Treasure Signature Noodle (聚豪三宝招牌面).  

In my opinion, the prawn fried rice was so well fried that the sweetness of the fried egg, accompanied by the juicy fresh prawns, were greatly enhanced by the aroma of the fiery wok in every grain that I chewed in my mouth!



To end the meal on a sweet note, we had the Red Bean Chocolate Dumpling. It is like XLB but this time, you get bursting chocolate sauce instead of soup. The sweetness of chocolate, paired with red bean, makes me want to go back for seconds!


Currently Social Square is running a 1-For-1 promotion, so you can also make use of the chance to mix things up and try from their Western-Japanese menu too. I've tried a few with my friends too and here's a little sneak peek...

Sashimi Juu - A platter of sashimi on top of sushi rice.

Mango & Avocado Dragon Roll - Fried prawn wrapped in suhi rice with mango, avocado and fish roe.
Honey Sweet Turnip Premium Pork Ribs with Parmesan Fries and Garden Salad.

John Dees Ribeye with Wedges and Baked Potato - Angus beef, grain fed 180 days, aged 4-6 weeks, super gold marbling with a minimum scored of 3.

All in all, I love the "All-In-One" concept that can satisfy everyone's appetite. 
With the cozy internal deco of Social Square, one tends to forget he/she is in a shopping mall due to the beautiful spacious dining hall with garden setting, tall trees, teak wood tables with comfortable seatings. And not forgetting the open-concept kitchen, that allows you to check out the food in preparation whilst chatting with your friends and families. 

Social Square, with the addition of Ju Hao, is definitely the place I will recommend for next my all-girls gathering!

Three Groups Of People Will Benefit From This Year's Singapore Coffee Festival.

| |
Hi Huneybees,
;

No, no, no! I am not referring to the event organizer The Straits Times, title sponsor DBS, nor the 80+ independent exhibitors spread across two floors at Marina Cruise Centre!!
Rather, the true benefiters at Singapore Coffee Festival (SCF) 2017 can be categorized into 3 (three) groups - Prospective Cafe Entrepreneurs, Coffee Enthusiasts, and Private (Grab / Uber) Drivers!!!


Benefiter #1 - Prospective Cafe Entrepreneurs

While the festival serves as a fantastic opportunity for coffee players and baristas to showcase the coffee industry here, it is a perfect knowledge-gathering ground for any Huneybee who wishes to jump on the cafe bandwagon to becoming a cafe entrepreneur.



One of the most valuable knowledge for any prospective entrepreneurs is to pick up those lessons learnt by others before them and The Straits Times has enabled just that by organizing a string of talks at the ST Lounge with industry players, including successful cafe start-up entrepreneurs, to share their insight of the industry, their experience and the challengers they have had overcame.
This, in my opinion, is far easier and faster way for all prospective entrepreneurs to identify the potential pitfalls of a café start-up, which otherwise would require them to gather through conversion with the like-minded exhibitors, whom may not always be represented by café owners.

Foxhole Café is one of the many new cafes popping up in the heartland of Singapore

Another reason why a prospective cafe entrepreneur will greatly benefits from attending this year's SCF is the number of cafe players represented at the festival, including a sizeable foreign exhibitors.
These local and foreigner exhibitors are not just the potential competitors for the prospective cafe entrepreneur but also serves as a source of idea of the type of coffee products that he/she can replicate and/or further improvise for his future cafe.


Benefiter #2 - Coffee Enthusiasts

While there is no prize for figuring out that the next group of benefiters at Singapore Coffee Festival (SCF) is the Coffee Enthusiast, it is also important to note that not all events or festivals are organized with attendee at heart; more often than not, organizers are targeting what's in the attendees' wallets instead!

Remember to redeem two drink samples that can be found inside your goodie bag when you exchange your ticket for entry

To an occasional coffee drinker like my younger brother, paying SGD 18 (after DBS/POSB or ST subscriber discount) for two sample-sized coffee is simply crazy but NOT to a coffee enthusiasts like yours truly Queenbee!

As a starter, a self-proclaimed coffee enthusiast must be "seen" at all importance coffee related events including SCF. There is a valid reason for it - Bragging Rights! In such a niche consumer event like SCF, exhibitors would certainly take the opportunity to launch their latest product to achieve maximum publicity and to gather consumer reaction and at this year's festival, I have seen many such launches including "DRIP COFFEE FOR A WEEK" - 7 single served coffee drip bags - by Chye Seng Huat Hardware Coffee Bar aka CSHH, Kaya Cream Muffin from Cream Muffin by Hattendo, and Singapore's first cold brewed sparkling Tea (hijacking the coffee festival...) in three different favours by Gryphon Tea Co.. For a coffee enthusiast who is building a credible social media network, this presents a great opportunity not-to-be missed, to be among the first to share these new discoveries on all his/her social media platforms. Snap, hashtag, tweet, etc.

The Kaya Cream Muffin from Cream Muffin by Hattendo is really delicious!

Singapore Coffee Festival also presents a rare opportunity for coffee enthusiasts to sample many difference coffee products under one roof as well as to discovery new indie cafes or coffee joints to hang out. One such discovery for me is the Shiseido Café, located at Takashimaya, that serves very good cheese cake and La Ganache (a delicious nutty pastry!!) on top of its imported Japanese brewed coffee. Contradict to my initial belief, this is a full fledged cafe and not a pop-up cafe or a coffee corner to serve the waiting customers of Shiseido Cosmetic.

Ms Linet Jannink co-found the Arrow Coffee

The other product worth mentioning is a cheaper alternative coffee capsule for existing Nespresso users by Arrow Coffee, a local start-up e-commence company. Packed in a box of 10 out of Netherlands @ 45cents per capsule, the capsules can only be purchased online and will  be delivered to your home in 4 (four) most popular favours.

Ms Sherry is a barista at CSHH 


The biggest benefit, in my opinion, for all coffee enthusiasts is the valuable knowledge they will pick up at SCF through the participation @ The Lab, where presentation on brewing  a perfect cup of coffee to sensory of coffee are shared at scheduled timing.
Another way to learn more about coffee is to speak directly with any barista at the festival. There are many of them around and I was delighted to meet up with Ms January of Cream Muffin by Hattendo and Ms Sherry of CSHH, who otherwise will be too busy for a conversion while they working back at their respective outlet.


Benefiter #3 - Private (Grab / Uber) Drivers

While the new home for Singapore Coffee Festival (SCF) 2017 is definitely bigger and more scenic (sea view), it presents some logistic inconvenience to potential festival goers and hence creates an opportunity for private drivers and taxis!


With 9 out of 10 people who I spoke to have nether heard of Marina Cruise Centre nor have been to the place prior to this event, and the fact that SBS Transit 402 is the only one Bus Service that serve the area starting from either Tanjong Pagar Station (Exit C) or Downtown Station (Exit C), and the nearest MRT (Marina South Pier) to Marine Cruise Centre still require festival goers to travel by foot for  another 600m, private drivers are poise for good business, especially over the weekend where the size of the attendee is expected to peak.

So Huneybees, which group do you fall in?

The second edition of Singapore Coffee Festival is organised by The Straits Times and presented by DBS, at Marina Bay Cruise Centre, from 3rd to 6th August 2017, at SGD 22 or SGD 18 if you are ST subscriber or DBS/POSB cardholder.

Secret's Out : Jay Park & Traveloka To Join AXN's "Asia's Got Talent" Family

| |
Hi Huneybees,


The record-breaking series - Asia’s Got Talent returns to AXN in October this year with 10 episodes comprising five judges’ auditions, three semi-finals, the finale and the results show where the winner will be revealed, and awarded a cash prize of USD 100,000 from Traveloka. 

Yup, TravelokaSoutheast Asia’s leading app for all hotel and flight needs, has joined in as the new presenting sponsor of the program. With this sponsor on board, one winner with the most vote from audience will receive a major prize from the sponsor - the Traveloka Awards!


Mr Christian Suwarna, Traveloka Senior Vice President of Business Development with Asia's Got Talent Season 2 Judges - David Foster, Anggun and Jay Park

The selection criteria for the Traveloka award will be based on the uniqueness of the participant’s talent and their connection story with family and friends. For each week, during the first five episodes, two acts will be highlighted and their stories will be published online. At the end of episode five, the audience will cast their vote for the most inspiring act.
“Traveloka is excited to partner with ‘Asia’s Got Talent’ where we see a mutual partnership value between Traveloka and the show. Every day, millions of people would open the Traveloka App as the first step of making their travel dreams come true. It offers a user-friendly booking experience and a wide range of flight and accommodation options at great prices, all to assist travelers in reaching any destination they want seamlessly. As the leading app for all hotel and flight needs in Southeast Asia, we are excited to empower the region’s talent as well as their journey to success with the support of their families and friends” --- Christian Suwarna, Traveloka Senior Vice President Business Development.
On top of the new sponsorship by Traveloka, there are a few surprises just like the addition of Tyra Banks as the host on America's Got Talent.


As a starter, the hosts this season are Alan Wong (Actor/Model/Host) and Justin Bratton (TV Host/Actor/Film-maker). They are both great personalities, embodying charisma and being best buddies, I bet this duo will bring fun to the stage hosting.



Another change to this season show is that we will be seeing just 3 judges instead for 4.
While this may sound like we are gonna see less judges drama with the exit of Melanie C and Vanness Wu, leaving David Foster and Anggun as the 2 remaining judges from the first season, I bet the new judge addition of Jay Park will more than fill up that void and bring in more Hallyu flavour to the show.


Jay, an award-winning, multi-platinum recording artist and savvy entrepreneur, CEO and founder of two successful record labels, will take the coveted hot seat alongside the show’s returning judges, the 16-time Grammy Award-winning music producer David Foster and internationally acclaimed singer and World Music Award winner Anggun. Together, they will be judging hundreds of acts from 17 countries across the region.


At the press con, we were also treated to an act by The Cazaubon Sisters (duet by young Singaporean sisters Ariane, aged 12, and Anne-Sophie Cazaubon, aged 10). They are one of the impressive acts during the recent auditions in Singapore and were invited to sing at the media conference, as a sneak peep into what we could expect on the reality show.


Both of them are currently singing with the Singapore Children's Choir and had started singing at the tender age of two, aspiring to be world-class singers since then. I can't wait to see what the the girls will bring on stage soon!

Apart from Traveloka, Great Eastern Life, the market leader in the conventional life insurance business and the largest life insurer in Malaysia by asset size will be the partner sponsor together with Marina Bay Sands, Asia’s leading business, leisure and entertainment destination, as the official venue partner of Asia’s Got Talent.

“The first season of Asia’s Got Talent was one of the biggest productions in the world. The series unveiled a host of talent from across the region and fast became a fan favourite with AXN viewers. Season Two is set to be even bigger and better.” --- Ganesh Rajaram, General Manager, EVP Sales Asia, FremantleMedia International

So be sure to tune in this October and support your favourite act! 
I can't wait for the show to be aired!

UPDATED! Limited Edition Singapore Exclusive Local Design Series Products By Thermos

| |
Hi Huneybees,


In celebration of its 113th Anniversary, Thermos Singapore has just launched its Limited Edition Singapore Exclusive Local Design Series Products - a one-push tumbler with Singapore’s iconic landmarks, and a food jar with drawings of traditional local food - with the collaboration from Pathlight School.



(From left to right) Ms Linda Kho (Principal, Pathlight School) and Grace Ong (Student Artist, Artist Development Programme, Pathlight School) as Jonathan Cai (Student Artist, Artist Development Programme, Pathlight School) presents his own artwork as a token of appreciation to Mr Hirokazu Otomo (Managing Director, Thermos Singapore) and Mr Seiichi Itoh (Chairman, Thermos Singapore).


Working for the first time with the Artist Development Programme from Singapore's first autism-focus school has not only resulted in the creation of two very distinct and beautifully designed products for Thermos Singapore, but also contributed to Thermos' corporate social responsibility to the community.

Through the collaboration, Thermos Singapore is able to uncover the talented artists - like Jonathan Cai and Grace Ong - among young people with special need by bringing their arts to the home and hearts of its customer.

During my short interaction with both young artists at the media session, I realised while both share great passion for arts and are very meticulous in their artwork, their styles are very different.
The style of Jonathan Cai is more structured - lines and curves -  as he prefers architecture and takes his inspiration from books and magazines while Grace Ong's style is more free flow and she takes her inspiration from the things she experienced and observed around her. In fact through Grace mum, I got the privilege to see her art portfolio and came to realisation she has great interest in jewellery design and hope one day her designs could be wore by many people!

The two Singapore Exclusive Local Design Thermos X Pathlight School premium product - JNL-400S & JBQ-400S


The Thermos® JNL-400S

Featuring detailed architectural line art of the Marina Skyline, by the hands of the 13 years old Artist, Jonathan Cai, the ultra-light and sleek tumbler showcases iconic landmarks such as Gardens by the Bay and Marina Bay Sands.

The Thermos® JBQ-400S

Singapore Exclusive Local Design Food Jar pays tribute to Singapore’s rich heritage of local delights. Grace Ong, who is 15 years old, transforms the food jar into a chic canvas with an assortment of local traditional foods such as Kueh Tutu, Kueh Lapis and Lepat Kacang in gold




Jonathan Cai  and Grace Ong (Both Student Artist, Artist Development Programme, Pathlight School) showing off the one-of-a-kind big size bottle for the charity auction


Jonathan Cai  and Grace Ong (Both Student Artist, Artist Development Programme, Pathlight School) putting their final touches on a one-of-a-kind big size bottle for the charity auction



To extend Thermos Singapore's support for many more young differently-abled aspiring artists, the global manufacturer and the pioneer in developing innovative vacuum-insulated products will be donating two specially designed big size bottles  - The Thermos® FDH-2005, which has a large capacity 2.0L - for a charity auction. 
Each bottle is specially hand-drawn by none other than the talented Jonathan Cai and Grace Ong!

Calling out to all Huneybees, please do your part too by participating in this online auction, which will start from 27 July 2017, 3:00pm till 31 August 2017, 11:59pm at www.thermos.com.sg/events/charity.

All proceeds for this charity auction will be donated to Pathlight School's parent charity, Autism Resource Centre (Singapore), a non-for-profit organization that supports individuals with autism.
More details of the auction can be found on the website.
