With March coming to an end, DiscoverSG has been bustling with more life than ever! Our lovely DiscoverSG ambassadors have been dropping in on a whole slew of exciting events.
This month’s highlights were full of fun new experiences and homey eats!
1. MINT Museum Of Toys
You’re never too old to play with toys!
The MINT Museum of Toys proves just that. Entering the museum is like stepping into a time capsule of old vintage toys and collectible items.
The impressive museum houses a Singaporean collector’s world-class display of 8000 toys, and it’s all housed in a 3 time international award-winning building.
The toys are displayed across the rooftop, basement and 4 levels of the museum. With themes like Outer space, Characters, Childhood Favourites and Collectables, you’ll know exactly where to find your favourites.

She was impressed by the collection originating from over 40 countries, including Japan Germany, UK, and Bulgaria. All of them have come a long way in terms of time too, with toys dating all the way back to the 1840s!
You can expect the familiar Batman, Dan Dare, Japanese characters, Mobo horses and pedal cars. In case you were wondering, the whole collection is valued at over S$5million–surely not an amount to play around with.

6. Face To Face Noodle House
Authentic Sarawak cuisine isn’t easy to find in Singapore… at all.
Thanks to Face To Face Noodle House, that’s no longer the case!
Their special noodle recipe traces its roots to Sarawak over 100 years ago. The story begins when the founder’s great grandfather mastered the art of making Jook Sing noodles, one of the rarest forms of noodle-making in existence.
The fresh homemade noodles that he served quickly captured the hearts and stomachs of many Sarawakians.
And Singaporeans too, once they set up shop here in 2015!
Our ambassador, Stephanie, was hosted to a sumptuous dinner just the other night!
We dug into delish bowls of Sarawak Laksa and Sarawak Traditional Noodles. Their secret family recipe definitely delighted our tastebuds!
You can also enjoy unique Pan Mee creations that are crafted to suit Singaporeans’ taste.
Come on down and try this Sarawakian secret family recipe!

You must have heard of the famous Seng’s Wanton Mee at Dunman Food Centre. Wanton hails from there!
Our ambassador, Grayce, headed down to dig into some bouncy wantons!
She loved how every bowl comes filled with warmth, comfort and satisfaction. And it’s all perfected through decades of hard work and artistry!
