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
