Katsu lovers can look forward to a taste-bud-tickling meal with the introduction of an authentic Japanese eatery serving katsu-concepts at digestible price tags. Located within Japan Foods Garden, Fry Pan Shokudo (Fry Pan “canteen”) is the latest eatery to join the enclave of Japanese food options tucked away in a corner of Isetan Scotts Food Republic. Wholly-owned by La Ditta Limited and helmed by successful restauranteur Mr. Taka Daiya, the concept will reignite the thirst for katsu all over again.
Synonymous with its name, Fry Pan Shokudo serves Western-inspired traditional Japanese cutlets on a miniature black ceramic-coated frying pan. The menu features varying katsu-options, with a choice to pair a flaky panko-crusted chicken or pork cutlet, topped with your choice of sauces. Conceptualised by Mr. Taka Daiya who formerly ran a restaurant in Los Angeles frequented by professional tennis player Maria Sharapova, as well as guitarist and singer-songwriter Eric Clapton, the menu retains its authenticity as it would typically be served at canteens in Japan.

March is the time when we replenish Mocha’s kibbles, to cut cost we would usually go for the biggest bag of kibbles and have the store separately pack them into vacuum-sealed smaller bags. So this time, we ordered our stuff from Kohepets and if you would like to view the unboxing video, please check it out below.
Kohepets is one of the top leading online pet stores in Singapore and they carry a wide range of products for dogs, cats and other small pets. I did a quick check with a few other online pet stores which I have shopped at before and found their pricing to be pretty competitive too. Continue reading →
We often hear about the benefits of consuming vegetables and fruits and how they are essential in completing your daily diet. But if you are like me, then you probably are not much of a fan of greens. However, I do love fruits though I am often too lazy to add them into my daily meals. So there have been days where I have skipped adding the necessary greens and fruits into my meals, which is not exactly a healthy option but due to inconvenience, this was the only option. That was until I found Unif in the supermarkets, now I no longer need to worry much about not consuming sufficient greens and fruits for my meals. This is because Unif 100% juice is made from a combination of vegetables and fruits.
There for 4 variations of the Unif vegetable and fruit juices currently available and they are the:
My little boy is one of the biggest Pokemon fans; he goes round telling other kids that he is a Pokemon master and shares almost the same name as Ash, the main character in the show. So naturally, the hub thought that it would delight him so much to bring him there to check it out.
Thinking back, it was all due to a really silly mistake of mine that we ended up at Lokkee for our Lou Hei dinner. Firstly, the gang did not plan to dine at Lokkee, heck, the majority of us did not even knew its existence. The choice venue for the gathering was Lao Beijing (which also happens to be part of the Tung Lok group; just like Lokkee). So I offered to go get a table since I was the first to reach Plaza Singapura. The moment I reached the 3rd level, I entered the first chinese restaurant I saw without even looking at the sign. That was how we ended up with a table in Lokkee. I had only realised that I was in the wrong place when I looked down at the menu and to my horror, it was Lokkee instead of Lao Beijing. Too embarrassed to admit my mistake and make an exit, I forced my friends to come into Lokkee instead. Well, on the bright side, we got to try out a new place as a group.
Taken from the Tung Lok website… “Lokkee is inspired by Chinese take-out food often found in Chinatowns across cosmopolitan cities like New York, London and Sydney but elevates it through the use of premium ingredients and clean flavours. Lokkee’s menu is based on the cuisine of Chinese immigrants who have built on traditional Chinese cooking and interpreted it for diners in their adopted homes. Diners can look forward to sample well executed dishes that are synonymous to this urban culinary phenomenon such as Chow Mein, Mongolian Beef and Orange Chicken.”
CulinaryOn has to be by far the best cooking class both Asher & I has attended. We were lucky to get a glimpse into what goes on during a lesson at their media launch earlier on this month. The staff have injected so much fun and laughter in the lessons that there is never a dull moment and the children are often kept on their toes, anticipating the next surprise.
Recently, it seems like I’ve become quite the domesticated goddess. It all started with a pot of beef stew gone wrong when I somehow managed to burn the carrots. I blame it on the pot though. Anyway, the good thing that blossomed out of this mess was that I started trying my hand at more dishes.
In the past, cooking was the last thing on my mind. And if I did cook, it would usually be an omelette or pasta, because pasta is really easy to whip up. But other dishes needed more

I was craving for hot plate tofu and decided to try making it myself. I found recipes online, mostly from a local blogger NoobCook. The recipes on the site were really easy and simple to follow. There were times when I didn’t have all the ingredients and I just made do with what I had. Sometimes, I would leave out stuff which I didn’t like either. Continue reading →
We spent our last Saturday morning at Kakis, a bistro & bar located in the heart of Changi Village. Surrounded by lush greenery and ample space for Asher to explore while we enjoyed our hearty breakfast.
They have just rolled out an all new weekend breakfast menu so you can bring your family and friends over to chill out, enjoy mother nature and the great outdoors. Continue reading →
Just realized that it is we are 3/4 way past July and I have not been blogging much this month. Just what have I been so busy with? I have absolutely no idea, time seems to fly back these days. So just a short recap on what I’ve been up to and what I’ve discovered.
The early part of July had been busy, we were out and about. Sea Aquarium, Kids Stop, discovering new playgrounds and re-introducing sushi to the boy.
