☘️ Therapeutic Time with Terrarium in SG 🌿
We had a terrific team time building our own open terrarium today, getting close to nature and de-stress with a 2-hour workshop.
It was a small class size and beginner friendly. The Sppfy's team provided useful knowledge on terrarium plants and care guides, while we learnt about different terrarium styles, succulents and cacti, materials, and personalized care tips.
We managed to:
🪴 Enjoy the studio entirely to ourselves
🪴 Work with a range of materials and tools to build the look we could ever imagine
🪴 Get unlimited use of basic terrarium materials (plants, rocks, pebbles, gravels, dried flowers and coloured preserved reindeer moss)
🪴 Receive a small white pot terrarium as a beautiful memory
Highly recommended activity if you just need some quiet time for yourself or quality time with your friends, family or colleagues! 😌

Premium Chocolate Shop
Address - Basement 2, Orchard Rd, #04 / 05 391, Singapore 238873
Highlight - High quality chocolate
Ambiance - Chocolate store
While shopping at the takashimaya basement area, my hubby and I came across the Godiva chocolate. The quality of their chocolate is delicious. Occasionally, we will splurge and buy some back to enjoy while watching movies at home together. Their Belgium chocolate is really very delicious that you have to try it at least once. Once you try it, you will never stop eating them. I love the packaging of the chocolate. The packaging is very nice and you can buy it as a gift to your friends too.

Hai Di Lao dinner
Address - 68 Orchard Rd, #04-01 20 Plaza, Singapore 238839
Ambiance / highlights - steamboat dinner at an air-conditioned restaurant
Rating - 5/5
My hubby and I, together with some of our friends, we went to the Hai Di Lao at the Plaza Singapura. My favorite is the sliced fish and the sliced meat while my friends favorite was the cheese sausage. We ordered quite a substantial amount of food. We managed to finish the food on time and there was discount given to us. We enjoyed dining at the restaurant as the ambiance was good. It was not too cramped, and the service was top notch. The crew came to us almost immediately when we needed help. With their great food and excellent service, no wonder they are able to expand more outlets in Singapore.
Library at Orchard
Address - 277 Orchard Rd, #03-12 / #04-11 orchardgateway, Singapore 238858
Ambiance / highlights - library in orchard
Rating - 5/5
When my hubby told me there is a library inside the orchard mall, I was surprised. I thought that he was joking. But in fact he brought me there the other time. I then trusted him that there is really a library at the busy street of the orchard. The library was extremely quiet. I love the design of the library in spiral design. There is a round space in the middle of the library where you can rest there and read your books. The library is located at level 4 of the orchard getway mall. All the books were nearly arranged and classified according to the genre.
great top-notched dining…😋😋😋

🍃 Refreshed & Rejuvenated at Jewel Changi
Singapore, oh Singapore! You never fail to leave me mesmerized with your impressive and innovative architecture. We made sure to schedule our flight in the evening so we get to explore this jewel (pun intended) fuss-free.
The lush greeneries at the Shiseido Forest Valley and the HSBC Rain Vortex were absolutely wonderful. Picture perfect at almost every angle! When we were there, they had the Disney 100 year decorations up. The theme changes all the time, so look it up and plan accordingly!
Shiki Hototogisu Ramen (#B1-300)
- Delicious Michelin star ramen, paired with a brilliant view of the vortex!
Pokémon Center (#04-201/202)
- Did you know that this is the first Pokémon Center in Asia outside of Japan?
1) Check in your luggage early! Or, if you have carry on luggages with you, we suggest dropping it at The Left Baggage at Level 1. Some attractions and some restaurants don't allow luggages, so be sure to check first.
2) There are Light and Sound showcase as well for the vortex! Check it out if your flight is at a later time:
Mon - Thur: 8, 9pm
Fri - Sun, public holidays: 8, 9 & 10pm
Rating (out of 5):
Lunch deal is a catch at Watami Dinning. This Ohyakodon set that comes with a soup, salad, and a drink cost less than 12 dollars.
the chicken, though fried, was tender and flavourful. together with the egg at the bottom, which makes tea dish a perfect combo.
Though I went after 2 p.m., the service was relatively slow. The dish took around 15 mins to be served, though the place was not crowded.

Didnt know Watami opened at Bugis+. This outlet is big and spacious. We ordered 5 kinds skewer + set, and tokichi pork don. 5 kinds skewer is very fragrant! Love the veg especially. The pork don is pretty average. Good taste wise but pork is slightly tough for my teeth.
Overall great place still!

The popular dishes are Garlicky Soy Fried Chicken, Honey Butter Chicken, Curry Powder Fried Chicken, Sour Cream and Onion, Cheesy Fondue Chicken, and more. Other than their signature fried chicken, they also serve good quality tobokki, seafood soup, and cheese fries. For drinks, I highly recommend Chir Cream Beer, it’s smooth and easy to drink. Beer and fried chicken are always a perfect match. There is a drink called Lady Killer on the menu, not sure what it is, would like to try it out some day. It’s about 2 minutes walking distance from MRT station.

Toysrus Kids Toy Paradise
180 Kitchener Road #04-33/36, City Square Mall, Central, 208539
The ToysRUs is definitely the kids toy paradise. Since I was young I will always visit the ToysRUs to look for toys and board games. It has become my go to place every weekend. The shop has evolved into selling more affordable toys to the consumer, unlike in the past where the price is on the higher side.
The shop is huge and there are a wide range of toys from soft toys, to Barbie dolls, to play doh. There is even a small corner for them to play their Lego there. The place is definitely one of the to go place if you are shopping present for children.
Shopping for parties
Address - SKP Supply Store, Junction 8 Shopping Centre, 9 Bishan Place, #04-05, Singapore 579837
This shop is a great place to stock up for your year-end Christmas parties as you can buy some of them in hulk and save quite a bit of money. I use the Christmas decor mainly as table decorations since their designs are quite nice. You can also find other party items like balloons, wrapping paper and ribbons, as well as disposable cutlery and utensils for guests to use. It’s a one-stop shop for all your large gathering needs!
My overall rating of the experience: 4 out of 5 stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Address - Library@Orchard, Orchardgateway Shopping Centre, 277 Orchard Road, #03-12/#04-11, Singapore 238858
Nestled within Orchardgateway Shopping Centre is a very interestingly designed library that looks quite different from all the other libraries in Singapore. With curved shelves and a calming neutral overall tone, it sure is a very inviting place to read. There is even a small stage further inside where the library sometimes holds events like storytelling for children or book-signing.
My overall rating of the experience: 4 out of 5 stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

It was my firsts time eating here and I was surprised by the portion size - it was larger than most sushi places.

1. Tamago - 7/10 Huge portion and egg was soft fluffy and on a sweeter side
2. Salmon skin maki - 10/10 Great texture and flavour! It was super delicious I wished I ordered more
3. Salmon Belly Sashimi - 10/10 The quality of the sashimi was great and fresh
4. Salmon Head - 6/10 The fish was not as meaty as I thought it would. And it was lacking taste.
5. Shiok Maki Gen 2 - 9/10 Very interesting dish! The taste was well balanced but lacking texture. Can't quite describe how it taste like but it was delicious!
6. Mental aburi salmon - 5/10 the salmon wasn't torched properly and there was a lack of texture. The mentai taste was lacking but it was still edible

One session costs S$30 per person, plus additional S$10 for firing and glazing. Value for money. For beginners, you may choose a cup, mini vase, or bowl. At the end of the session, you can choose your own preferred colour for firing and glazing. There are a lot of samples on display at the studio for inspiration and ideas.

IKEA Jurong @ JEM
This is IKEA's first small-concept store in Southeast Asia, and a third outlet in Singapore. There are three levels at IKEA Jurong.

Here, you can enjoy easier shopping with cashless payments, digital tools, and a combined layout of inspiration and home furnishing. This reduces queues as each floor has its own check-out area. There is information on the number of people at the queue on each level. Special exceptions are made for older folks who prefer other modes of payment. To accommodate the narrower aisles, you can also make use of the smaller IKEA trolleys for shopping. Limited parking. IKEA at Jem is conveniently located next to the Jurong East MRT station.

Ha-Jun Korean, Clementi Mall
Portion wise is good, taste average and not as authentic. Ambience is a food court alike, but with a nice view where you can see Clementi Primary School and some buildings from the window. I ordered Bibimbap, it came with a mini bowl of miso soup and two side dishes, kimchi and anchovies. The kimchi was too sour, and the anchovies were hard to chew. I quite like the Bibimbap though, inside got bulgogi chicken, a few vegetables and topped with a sunny side up fried egg. Okay for a quick fix of lunch or dinner.

I visited this place during Covid period while we are still not able to travel to our neighbouring country. Glad that Clementi Mall has brought Malaysian cuisine right to the doorsteps of people living in Clementi.
Overall there are many types of food choices. It is conveniently located next to Clementi MRT station. Do expect crowds during lunch hours, there could be a long queue for food.
