Hu guys, if you have been following closely on my Facebook and Instagram, you would have know that I went for a 4D3N ClubMed Bali trip sometime back. Club Med Bali is located in Nusa Dua, Bali and it is an oasis retreat for families, friends and couples with exhilarating activities and breath taking views.

There is also a daybed in front the windows which brings you closer to the nature. Imagine reclining the comfort of your personal space on a lazy afternoon.

'Singaporean food Culture





Craving for curry puff?
Here is a good recommendation!!!

TIP TOP Curry Puff (Halal) since 1979! I have been eating curry puffs from this store since I was young.

Tip Top Curry Puff @Hiap Hua kopitiam(Right behind Jubilee)
Address: 722 Ang Mo Kio Ave 8 #01-2843
Opening Hours: Daily 9.30am to 9.30pm
Website: http://www.tiptop-puffs.com/
Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/tiptopcurrypuff

Tip Top The Puff Factory (Plaza Singapura)
Address: 68 Orchard Road
#B2-02 Plaza Singapura
Opening Hours: Daily 10am to 10 pm




Hmmm, something to share... When I was young, my parent used to buy the puffs from the store for
 $0.60 each. But now the price of Tip Top Curry Puff has increased to $1.30 and that is the same price as Old Chang Kee’s curry puff. I would say it is worth the money.

I rated it as Singapore's Best Curry Puff! These curry puffs still taste like the ones I remember eating when I was still a kid!  The crust was nice and buttery and the filling inside was genourous and not overly spicy. There was also a piece of hard-boiled egg in it accompanied by the tasty chunk of chicken meat inside.

Try the Singapore Best Curry Puffs today!

Since 1930, Singapore's first commercial bakery manufacturer, Sunshine Bakeries, has been steadfast in its commitment to taste, health and innovation – the three exceptional qualities that define Sunshine's leading vision in producing softer, healthier and tastier bread for its increasingly health-conscious consumers. Its newest product innovation, the Sunshine Mocha Choc Wholemeal Cream Roll, is now available in the popular buns and rolls segment in Singapore.

 More Singaporeans are immersing themselves in the fast-growing coffee culture here. Appealing to the rapidly increasing population of coffee aficionados in Singapore, Sunshine Bakeries launches its latest offering: The Sunshine Mocha Choc Wholemeal Cream Roll. Marrying the aromatic taste of freshly brewed cuppa with the delicious, irresistible flavour of chocolate, the Sunshine Mocha Cream Roll is a yummy and nutritious option for coffee-lovers or those on-the-go. Infused with a generous dose of Mocha cream sandwiched in the middle of a soft, pillowy, Choc Wholemeal bread roll, it is high in calcium and iron, enriched in vitamins B1, B2 and B3, and contains prebiotics which helps the growth of good bacteria for a better digestive system. Grab it on your way to work, pack it in your child's lunchbox or simply savour it as a convenient snack – The Sunshine Mocha Cream Roll is endorsed by the Health Promotion Board's Healthier Choice symbol so you can indulge without guilt.

Sunshine is a heritage label that has achieved many firsts. It began fortifying its breads with vitamins from as early as 1948 and has since remained the bread of choice for many Singapore families by being at the forefront of changing times and consumer trends with its successful new product innovations. A market leader in Singapore, Sunshine Bakeries is the first bakery manufacturer in Asia to be awarded three prestigious PSB awards: ISO 9001 for quality, ISO14001 for environmental friendliness, HACCP for food hygiene and safety.

 Making healthier dietary choices is the first step towards a better lifestyle and it all starts with the goodness of whole grain. Most of us consume bread as a breakfast staple and it makes a great snack for those who are always on-the-go. Because it makes up a necessary part of our daily meals, we are effectively improving our diets by going “brown” – taking the whole grain route. Sunshine Bakeries, Singapore's first commercial bakery manufacturer, carries both wholesome and delicious bread options that will win over even the most discerning consumer.

A leader in Asia in promoting the benefits of whole grains, Sunshine Bakeries is committed to providing Singaporeans with healthier and innovative bread options that meet the recommended five to seven servings of whole grains each day. Whole grains come from wheat berries, which are kernels or seeds. Wheatberries contain all parts of the grain, namely the bran, endosperm and germ which make them a great source of protein, dietary fibre, complex carbohydrates, minerals, vitamins and antioxidants – essential minerals that are known to help prevent heart disease, stroke, diabetes, obesity and some cancers.

The Sunshine Wholemeal Bread range is endorsed by both the US WholeGrain Council (WGC) and by the Health Promotion Board (HPB) as a Healthier Choice product. These are the stamps of endorsement that one should look out for to ensure their wholemeal bread is made with whole grains. Consumers can choose from five different types of breads to suit their taste buds. The Sunshine Wholemeal Bread range offers the following options: Extra Fine Sprouted Wholemeal, Classic, Multi-Grain, Soft Grain, and Softmeal.

The Extra Fine Sprouted Wholemeal is ideal for white bread consumers looking to make a switch to whole grains – it has an extra fine texture, is distinctively flavourful and has the many nutritional benefits of sprouted grains. “Sprouted grains are whole grains. These grains are gentler on our digestion and have higher level of fibre, folate, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. Sprouted grains also have a lower glycaemic impact which help keep blood sugar healthy,” said Ms Cynthia Harriman, Director of Food & Nutrition Strategies of the US Whole Grains Council.

Those who prefer a grainier and nuttier taste will love the Classic Wholemeal or the Enriched Multi-Grain loaf, which contains nutrient-rich whole grains and seeds. Soft Grain Wholemeal bread contains premium Australian rolled oats and is delightfully high in fibre. Whereas the Softmeal loaf is easy on the palette and perfect if you just need a quick bite. For parties and gatherings, the Extra Fine Wholemeal Hamburger Buns and Wholemeal Hot Dog Rolls provide a tasty and nutritious option. By supplying more tasty options for everyone, Sunshine caters to individual dietary needs for any occasion. Eating healthy and going brown has never been this delicious!

About Whole Grains Council (WGC) and the US Whole Grain Council Stamp
Oldways is a non-profit food and nutrition education organization, with a mission to guide people to good health through heritage, using practical and positive programs grounded in science and tradition. The Whole Grains Council (WGC), an Oldways program, has been working since 2003 to increase consumption of whole grains for better health, and in 2005 introduced the Whole Grain Stamp, now used on more than 9,500 products in 41 countries. The WGC's many initiatives help consumers to find whole grain foods and understand their health benefits; help manufacturers and restaurants to create delicious whole grain foods; and help the media to write accurate, compelling stories about whole grains. You can learn more about both at www.oldwayspt.org and www.wholegrainscouncil.org.

The eye-catching black and gold Whole Grain Stamp makes finding whole grains simple. Each "Stamped" product guarantees consumers at least half a serving of whole grains, making it easy for one to get the recommended three servings or more of whole grains each day. To meet your daily dietary requirements, you can either consume three whole grain food products labelled "100% Whole Grain", or six products bearing any Whole Grain Stamp.
