Beauty in The Pot is one of the concept from Paradise Group. It’s one of the crazy crowded steamboat aka hotpot restaurant in Singapore.

IMG_20160102_130045_HDRTheir signature is the Beauty Collagen Broth ($20 per pot / $25 for twin flavors). The collagen soup base isn’t boiled from chicken but from Shark Cartilage which give you rich flavors on your tongue and also abundant benefits for your health. *p.s. also the beauty for the ladies 😀

Collagen Soup was too delicious till you can’t get enough of it but don’t worry, they give you four bottles of refills and it’s free! So it’s okay if you don’t order drinks because the sup itself can make you so full already.

The Ingredients are fresh and superb tasty. You can order either one or half portion (half portion can suit for 2 pax). Order half portion on each ingredients and you can get to taste a lot. We ordered some kinds of mushrooms, Sliced Pork Belly ($12), Ebiko Prawn Paste, Fried Fish Skin ($5), Tofu, Lotus Root, Spinach.

There’re a lot of ingredients for you to choose. They provide an iPad for each table so you can look at the menu slowly while swiping them one by one on the iPad 😀

The Mixture of the soup and ingredients is so delicious. You can put all the ingredients inside the soup or you can just agar agar put inside the soup for few seconds and eat it. Before that, you can dip the ingredients inside the sauce that you can choose and mix by yourself.

The Service of this restaurant is excellent. The waiter / waitress will treat you like a queen / king all the time! They are very attentive and polite, and they bow ALL THE TIME! Like if they remove your plate, they bow, help you with the soup, bow, take your orders, bow. This maybe the greatest restaurant service so far.

Will I come back again?

YES for sure. The collagen soup is so addicting and probably will make you want more and more.

Tips:

If you want to come, be sure to call and make a reservation first. We came at 10 pm to have late dinner but it’s full house and the receptionist told us that we have to wait till 1 am which means 3 more hours. So we decided to go back and have dinner somewhere else then go back to the restaurant for lunch the day after. *we called and made reservation at 11am when the restaurant just opened 😀

The Trey Hostel – Singapore

Location : 243 Jalan Besar, Singapore 208916

Phone : +65 62 977188

Web : thetrey.com.sg

Rate : 8/10

Are you a backpacker? Wanna stay on low-budget in Singapore? Want to find a place near to the shopping place, mall, and local restaurants or hawker center? If the answer is Yes, then you should choose “The Trey Hostel” to stay when you’re in Singapore.

1451873679139Some people may be scared when they read the word “hostel”, but this place is safe enough. Of course you should not expect this place to be the same as five-star luxury hotel, but I may say that this is the best hostel so far. It’s affordable and comfortable. Another thing I like about this hostel is their service. Nice hospitality and they have nice accommodating staffs too.

Great location? Yes. You just need around 5 minutes walk to reach the hostel from Farrer Park MRT at City Square Mall. Around the hostel, there’re lots of places you can go. Mustafa center, Swee Choon Dimsum, Sungei Road Laksa, City Square mall, and some nice kopitiams, you name it.

It has 10 and 12 mixed dorms, 6 ladies’ dorm, and two private rooms. The private rooms got no windows and bathroom inside, just shared bathrooms outside. The hostel gives you free wi-fi access except on the ladies’ dorm (fourth floor). They also provide bread and coffee/ tea for your breakfast at the first floor.

So, have you ever stayed at The Trey Hostel? What do you think about the place?

Magnificent Gardens by the Bay

Location : Marina Bay, Singapore

Rate : 10/10

Nearest MRT station : Bayfront

Admission ticket : SGD 23 (Adult), SGD 15 (Child) for two conservatories – indoor gardens (Flower Dome + Cloud Forest), FREE for outdoor gardens

One word to describe this place : MAGNIFICENT!!

Flower Dome
Flower Dome

You wanna find a garden in a city? Or a city in a garden? Whatever you choose, Garden by the Bay is your perfect choice. It is a strategy made by the Singapore government to transform Singapore from a “Garden City” to “City in the Garden”.

The park is extremely popular and I think it can be the icon of Singapore already. The park itself has three gardens : Bay South, Bay East, and Bay Central. The largest is the Bay South where you can find the Flower Dome, Cloud Forest, and the Supertree Grove.

When I went there, the place is seriously crowded. Thankfully I have bought my admission tickets before so I didn’t have to join the super long Q to get the tickets.

1451749044556First time you come maybe you will feel a bit confuse coz it needs a long walk from the front entrance (Bay South) to the flower dome. But don’t worry, it’s all worth your time!

As you enter the flower dome, you can spot very many amazing views. If you’re a photo freak, this is one of the place that is MUST VISIT! You can find some different gardens inside the flower dome. Then after you have explored all the dome, you can continue to visit the Cloud Forest. Both the flower dome and cloud forest have air cond as they’re indoor gardens. Once you get inside the cloud forest, you can see the waterfall and you will feel like you’re in different world.

Then there’s the Supertree Grove. Make sure you reach there by 7.45 p.m or 8.45 p.m as it will be a music show called the OCBC Garden Rhapsody and you can see the Supertree come alive with the lights. You can just sit there, watching the show and snap lots of pictures or just enjoy the spectacular view.

This place is seriously amazing. I cannot stop “wow-ing” since I entered the place till I get out. If there’s just one place I can recommend in Singapore, Gardens by the bay will be the one.

Try to not come at daytime because it will be sunny and hot. The perfect time for you to come is around 5 p.m so you will have the time to explore the whole gardens and by 8.45 p.m you can enjoy the OCBC Garden Rhapsody.

Beware if you come at peak season because there will be a super long Q at the ticket counter. I suggest you to buy the entry ticket first so you can save your time. Don’t know how you get the ticket? You can email me through wongsofenny@gmail.com and I will help you. You will get the cheaper price of course 😉

So, what do you think about this place? Have you been here before?

Singapore Flyer – a moving experience on every turn

Location : Raffles Avenue, Singapore

Rate : 8/10

Admission ticket : SGD 33 (adult), SGD 21 (child)

Like the tagline, “a moving experience on every turn”, yes, this giant Ferris Wheel really give you lots of experiences when you are inside the capsule.

How to get there?

The easiest way is by MRT, stop at Promenade Station (Circle Line). From there, you just need to walk around 5 minutes and you can reach Singapore Flyer.

I always have a thing for a Ferris Wheel, don’t know why but it’s always so nice to see the giant wheel moving slowly, especially when it’s nighttime when you can see the wheel turning as the sky getting darker. Okay maybe I start to sound a lil poetic here :p

So, I decided to hop inside this capsule on January 2nd, 2016. I need to Q a while to get to the capsule maybe because it’s weekend and New Year’s vibe is still on 😀

SG Flyer Boarding Pass

FYI, the opening hours is 8.30 a.m – 10.30 p.m. There are 28 capsules and one capsule can fit to 28 passangers in one time. You will be inside the capsule for around 30 minutes.

So, I may say night time is the best time to ride the capsule as you can see the nightview of Singapore. Maybe you think you’ll be afraid of the height, but if you really do enjoy the spectacular view, you would hardly know you were moving. From the capsule, you can see some attractive places like Merlion Park, The Fullerton Bay, Esplanade, Singapore River, Marina Bay Sands, The Helix Bridge, Youth Olympic Park, F1 Circuit, and many more. The view is stunning, amazing, and breathtaking.

You can ride the capsule with your family, friends, but the best is with your partner of course. When you’re inside the capsule, you can feel the romantic vibe all around you. And there’s a myth saying that if you both kiss when the capsule reach the top, both you and your partner will live happily forever. Haha I know it may sounds cliché, but there’s no harm trying :p

You can also get your own capsule and get a premium sky dining with your partner. It’s also a good place to celebrate your anniversary or to propose your girlfriend.

Anyway, if you need to buy the admission ticket first, of course with the cheaper price, you can contact me through my e-mail : wongsofenny@gmail.com

So, what’s your experience being on Singapore Flyer? 😀

Lady M again!

Location : Orchard Central, One Fullerton, Westgate, Singapore

Rate : 8.5 / 10

Yeah, I’m back to this place again! I wasn’t satisfy enough when I first visited that place coz I think the cakes were too creamy and sweet. Okay maybe that sounds like an excuse tho, haha I admit that I want to try their another cake :p

I’ve written a review about LadyM before, in case you want to take a look then here you go >> Lady M

So this time I visited Lady M on January 2nd, 2016. We were walking around Orchard when I decided to stop by Lady M at Orchard Central. Same as the first time I went there, the place was still very crowded. The Q was damn crazy. I decided to dabao (takeaway) and I still have to Q, but not as long as the one who wanted to eat there.

IMG_20160102_175151I was confused about choosing which cake should I order. I planned to have checker but my friend said tahat checker was “too common” for LadyM so I order the chocolate Mille Crêpes since I never tried it before.

So, after around 20 minutes Q, I finally got my cake for 9.65 SGD! (Don’t convert it to IDR please :’))

LadyM updated menu - Jan 2016LadyM updated menu - Jan 2016
LadyM updated menu – Jan 2016

So, I may say that this is the best mille Crêpes I have tasted so far, and I think the chocolate one is still better than the green tea. (that’s also why I give higher rate on the chocolate mille Crêpes :p). You can taste the chocolate on every small bite of the cake. It’s sweet yes, but the chocolate flavor cover the sweetness so can’t really taste the sweet, it’s just all the chocolate!

 

 

 

IMG_20160102_181053

IMG_20160102_180932I would recommend this chocolate Mille Crêpes as your GO, but if you’re a green tea or vanilla lover, then it’s not wrong to try them too!

(ps. I’m a vanilla lover and I still prefer the chocolate rather than the vanilla one)

So, what’s your favorite in LadyM?
