Suparakki Ramen (幸运拉面) - Ramen Bowl under $10

Am super excited to see Suparakki Ramen opening its 4th and newest outlet at Heartland Mall (Kovan)! This ramen shop is introduced to us by our boy who has heard many good reviews that it serves delicious ramen at an affordable price! 

Suparakki means 'Super lucky' in Japanese and hopes customers feel the luck with each bowl of goodness.

We had our first Suparakki Ramen bowl at the Yishun outlet which has very limited seating but comfortable. Though it feels a little cramp (due to our bigger sizes), I like the homely feel and decor which makes me feel like having a meal at an authentic Japanese ramen stall.

My first Suparakki Ramen Bowl

Suparakki Ramen (Kovan Outlet)

The newer outlet at Heartland Mall has more seating and is brighter and more spacious with a bit of cafe ambiance. Long queues were formed and be prepared for some waiting time. *PS: This was in April before stricter covid measures were implemented

Menu is pretty simple - mainly 6 ramen bowls to choose from

Dry Truffle Ramen - $6.90

Supa Signature Ramen (Spicy/non-Spicy) - $8.90

Tonkotsu Shoyu Ramen (Spicy/non-Spicy) - $8.90

Tonkotsu Gyokai Ramen (Spicy/non-Spicy) - $8.90

Tonkotsu Black Garlic Ramen (Spicy/non-Spicy) - $8.90

White Devil Ramen (Very Spicy) - $9.90

The pork base soup broth is thick with bold and rich flavour boiled over many hours without adding MSG. Price of a #ramenbowl is about $7.90 and you can top up about $5 for a set (side + drink) - Definitely value for money.

Our Ramen bowls orders

Portion is decent and I really love the broth and the delectable taste. This is definitely one of our top Ramen place to be in Singapore where we can enjoy a delicious bowl at an affordable price for our family.

Fort Canning Park - Singapore Parks

Fort Canning Park is one of Singapore's most iconic historic landmarks. Located in the heart of the city, it is a quick getaway and stress-busting remedy to embark in the hill's heritage trail and immerse with the nature. 

Although the park is about 18 hectares in size, Fort Canning features nine historical gardens!

Pancur Larangan, Artisan's Garden, Sang Nila Utama Garden, Jubilee Park, Raffles Garden, First Botanic Garden, Farquhar Garden, Spice Garden, Armenian Street Park

Sengkang Riverside Park & Sengkang Floating Wetland

Thanks to Covid, there is a shift in my lifestyle. I am loving my morning walks lately - exploring little corners of my homeland bit by bit whenever I can. Last week, I took a 3 hours walk from home to explore Sengkang Riverside Park - Sengkang Floating Wetland, continuing my way along Punggol Park Connector by foot, passing by Kampung Lorong Buangkok before making my way home. Did not expect to walk so much but covered about 8km at a leisure pace.

Kyoto's Famous Menbaka Fire Ramen

Menbaka Fire Ramen kicks off with a bang when it was opened in November 2020 - long queues were seen crawling on its opening special 1 for 1 promo. Our boy is a die-hard ramen fan and hence we decided to wait till the heat is down before making our trip down to experience the fire ramen. 

Located at Level 5, Cineleisure Orchard, it is tucked at the corner upon exiting from the lift lobby. We were among the first few in line and customers of the day. 

While waiting, we check out the menu which is very simple and concise. Only 3 main ramens to choose - Tonkotsu Fire Ramen, Shoyu Fire Ramen and Vegetarian Fire Ramen

Sembawang Hot Spring Park - Singapore's best natural foot spa

We have heard so much about the Hot Spring Park at Sembawang even before it was closed for renovation works. When it was reopened to the public in 2020, it was one of our top venue to visit but due to the sudden outbreak of Covid-19, we shelved our plans again till Phase 3.  

How to get there
By Bus
The nearest bus stops to Sembawang Hot Spring Park would be 
1) Blk 114 Yishun Ring Road (Bus Stop ID: 57129) 
Bus Number - 167, 167e, 800, 811 (A), 856, 858 (A), 859, 969, 980

Bus Number - 167e, 856, 858, 859, 969, 980

Takes about 8-10 mins walk from the bus stop to the park.

By Car
There is no carpark within the Hot Spring Park. The nearest carpark will be at Blk 114 Yishun Ring Road. Takes about 8 minutes to walk to the park from the carpark.
