Laksania at Nex Mall

Mrupupup attended Laksania's talk by their boss. Laksania serves very nice Laksa which is a spicy noodle dish. Laksania located at the Nex Mall (#B1-08) serves Kelantan laksa, Singapore Laksa, Penang Laksa and Sarawak Laksa. Laksania is a social entreprise store and it is a sister company of the famous Secret Receipe. Their Boss of Laksania shared the difficulties of setting up this store to help the less fortunate people in society via gainful employment in Laksania. Social Entreprise in Singapore is not easy and only business people with the toughest minds chart out their paths and are determine to help the less fortunate in society. The food in Laksania was good and Mrupupup tried their Sarawak Laksa which was spicy, yummy and comes with chicken meat. Laksania also serves Laksa Goreng (fried noodles with laksa sauce), laksa satay, various desserts and many laksa types of food. All the food items are nice and served by very friendly staff, some of whom do face challenges in life. Check out their notice board where many famous personalties have patronised Laksania. Final note, Laksania means Laksa 'Nia' in Hokkien language means Laksa Only!

Hans Cafe Pastries

Mrupupup just likes to eat. Hans Cafe at Velocity @ Novena Square #01-11 (Thomson Road) sure has many types of cakes and pastries for one to eat. Mrupupup just could not resist and bought their chicken pie, kaya pandan cake and their peach tart. All the items bought was in Mrupupup's tummy within a few hours! Yummys! Guess Mrupupup loved their pastries. Chicken pie was great with chicken and potatoes, eat it while the pie is warm. The kaya pandan layer cake was very nice and fragrant with pandan. Peach tart just one huge peach on top of the tart which was good.

Botanic Gardens Singapore

Botanic Gardens Singapore established in 1859 is one place that is full of activity on a weekend morning. There were many people in the Botanic Gardens! The garden was full of energy with people having picnic, walking their dogs, viewing the plants & flowers, taking a jog and enjoying nature at its best. Mrupupup was just taking a stroll cum jog through the gardens and taking lots of photos in the Botanic Gardens on a weekend morning (even got a beautiful caterpillar shot!). Do visit the Botanic Gardens located at 1 Cluny Road (Tanglin area). Enjoy!

United Neighbours Society Mediacorp TV Filming with Quan Yi Feng权怡凤 & Guo Liang郭亮

United Neighbours Society filming was done in the housing estate and Mrupupup happened to be around to take some photos and one video of their filming. The United Neighbours Society is a variety programme by Singapore's Mediacorp channel and helmed by the two TV hosts Quan YiFeng 权怡凤 and Guo Liang 郭亮. The whole TV show was taped in the housing estate and they spent the whole day at this housing estate just to paint two mock up durians! Wow! Anyway, just take a look at the celebrity hosts Quan Yi Feng权怡凤 and GuoLiang 郭亮, they are two hard working TV hosts trying very hard with their teams to win with their creation of the mock up durians. Very interesting to watch them produce a variety TV show in the middle of a HDB housing estate. Also got one picture of Chew Chor Meng 周初明 in the vicinity.
