FatBurger Gives You A Taste Of America With Its Quadruple-Sized Burgers – To Open 7 September
First, Shake Shack announces that they’ll be opening in Jewel Changi Airport.
Now, another American fast food chain has announced that they will be opening in Singapore – say hello to Fatburger![caption id="attachment_36760" align="aligncenter" width="1000"] Image Credit: FatBurger Singapore[/caption]
Most of you would be wondering what Fatburger is, because our American fast food vocabulary is limited to Shake Shack, In-N-Out, Wendy’s and McDonald’s.
To start off, there is no affiliation to FatPapas or FatBoy’s.
All-American Fast Food
Fatburger has actually been around since 1952 and voted as America’s Best Burger on many occasions.[caption id="attachment_36771" align="aligncenter" width="1500"] Image Credit: FatBurger Singapore[/caption]
It’s odd that they’ve managed to stay out of Singaporeans’ fast food radar, considering that they have outlets in Japan, Beijing, and the Philippines.
Now that they’ve decided to open in Singapore, the first 2 stores will be opening in OneKM Mall in Katong and Velocity at Novena Square.
Here’s a look at what the stores are expected to look like.[caption id="attachment_36767" align="aligncenter" width="2000"] Image Credit: FatBurger Singapore[/caption] [caption id="attachment_36768" align="aligncenter" width="1472"] Image Credit: FatBurger Singapore[/caption] [caption id="attachment_36769" align="aligncenter" width="1472"] Image Credit: FatBurger Singapore[/caption] [caption id="attachment_36770" align="aligncenter" width="1472"] Image Credit: FatBurger Singapore[/caption]
If you think this is just another run-of-the-mill fast food chain, think again. Every burger is cooked upon order using fresh lean beef, chicken, or turkey.
While the full menu has not been revealed, we do know that you can choose to customise your burger in 4 available sizes – Single, Double, Triple, and Quadruple.[caption id="attachment_36761" align="aligncenter" width="923"] Image Credit: FatBurger[/caption]
The last fast food chain that offered multi-layered burgers was Wendy’s (and we all know what happened to her). But here’s to Fatburger bringing it back because we’re all for customisable meals.
For sides, there’s your standard skinny fries, fat fries (chips), sweet potato fries, and onion rings. We’re loving this inclusivity. #AllSidesMatter[caption id="attachment_36762" align="aligncenter" width="917"] Image Credit: FatBurger[/caption]
That’s not all, they even offer Buffalo Wings – traditional, boneless, and tenders.[caption id="attachment_36763" align="aligncenter" width="1076"] Image Credit: FatBurger[/caption]
To go with your burger, fries and buffalo wings, how about some milkshakes?[caption id="attachment_36766" align="aligncenter" width="960"] Image Credit: FatBurger Singapore[/caption]
FatBurger has 4 flavours to choose from – Chocolate, Strawberry, Vanilla, and Cookies & Cream.[caption id="attachment_36765" align="aligncenter" width="852"] Image Credit: FatBurger[/caption]
The first outlet to open will be at OneKM, on 7 September 2018. The outlet at Velocity @ Novena Square will open a week later, on 14 September 2018.
Are you excited to try Fatburger?

Can’t Fight This ‘Filling’ – This Izakaya In Novena Serves Gyoza In Unique Flavours Under $8
If you were at the Ramen Revolution back in July, you might’ve bumped into this restaurant’s booth at the event and watched Food League SG’s own competitive eater, Zermatt Neo, scarf down their signature gyozas.[caption id="attachment_36644" align="aligncenter" width="1080"] Image Credit: @chaochaosg[/caption]
Introducing Chao Chao Gyoza.
As the name suggests, they specialise in gyoza. All kinds of gyoza.
Gyozas For Days
Chao Chao Gyoza might be a new Japanese joint in Singapore, but it already has outlets in Japan, as well as Philippines and Hong Kong.[caption id="attachment_36648" align="aligncenter" width="960"] Image Credit: Chao Chao Gyoza SG[/caption]
The quaint izakaya situated in Novena serves up gyoza in assorted flavours. You can expect to find traditional gyoza flavours such as Cabbage, Ginger Pork, and Spring Onion Pork.
For those of you more adventurous, Chao Chao Gyoza also has Curry, Onsen Egg and Cheese, Cabbage with Sriracha and Mayo, and even a seafood Kani and Ebi gyoza.[caption id="attachment_36650" align="aligncenter" width="645"] Image Credit: Burppler Blanche Tan[/caption] [caption id="attachment_36651" align="aligncenter" width="645"] Image Credit: Burppler Xing Wei Chua[/caption]
Some of their bestselling gyoza flavours are the Prawn, Garlic Pork with Kimchi Sauce, Chicken and Mozzarella Cheese, and the extremely local-sounding Salted Egg Chicken.
Don’t miss out on their signature Chao Chao Gyoza ($4.90 for 8, $$7.90 for 16).[caption id="attachment_36646" align="aligncenter" width="803"] Image Credit: Chao Chao Gyoza SG[/caption]
These gyoza are served a little differently from the others, in that they’re panfried and served together rather than individually, like gyoza usually are.
The signature gyoza are filled with minced pork, handmade daily and use less oil in the cooking process. I can’t help but wonder if the “less oil” is because they’re all cooked together at once.
But anyway, while Chao Chao Gyoza specialises in gyoza of all sorts, it does not comprise the entire menu.
If you’re like me and believe that gyoza are side dishes and not mains, then go for the more substantial Wagyu Abura Soba ($16.90) which uses 80% buckwheat soba noodles and Australian 400-day grain-fed Wagyu.[caption id="attachment_36653" align="aligncenter" width="1080"] Image Credit: @chaochaosg[/caption]
There are plenty more sides available to go with your order of gyoza. Either come with a big group or be prepared to make multiple visits if you’re planning to try everything on the menu.

Old Chang Kee’s Exclusive ‘Curry Day’ Flavours Are Unexpectedly Fruity – Will You Dare To Try Them?
Back in June, Old Chang Kee announced that Curry Day 2018 will be taking place on 27 and 28 July 2018.
In case you missed the announcement, here’s the article.
They also announced that they will be unveiling 2 new exclusive Curry puffs closer to Curry Day 2018.
Enter Old Chang Kee’s new Durian Curry Chicken’O and Jackfruit Curry Chicken’O.
Curry With Jackfruit And…Durian?
Sometimes, pandering to local cuisine can take drastic turns, and this is one of them.
It may be Durian season but we’re not quite sure what to feel about mixing Durian and Curry.[caption id="attachment_36041" align="aligncenter" width="480"] GIF Credit: giphy[/caption]
Jackfruit, on the other hand, might not be that much of a stretch, considering that jackfruit is a component used in curries in Bangladesh and other parts of Asia.
Here’s a look at the Durian Curry Chicken’O in all it’s pastel green glory.[caption id="attachment_36039" align="aligncenter" width="640"] Image Credit: Old Chang Kee[/caption]
And the Jackfruit Curry Chicken’O.[caption id="attachment_36040" align="aligncenter" width="640"] Image Credit: Old Chang Kee[/caption]
These new curry puffs will be available at Curry Day 2018 at [email protected] Square.
It’ll cost $4 for 2 pieces for the new curry puffs. The Chilli Crab’O will also be available at Curry Day 2018.[caption id="attachment_35914" align="aligncenter" width="2480"] Image Credit: Old Chang Kee[/caption]
Other than the myriad of Curry puff flavours you’ll find there, there will also be curry puff crimping demonstrations, so you can make your own at home! The kids can also take part in spice art lessons!
Are you looking forward to trying the Durian Curry Chicken’O and Jackfruit Curry Chicken’O?

The Average Singaporean Lifestyle Automatically Ages Your Hair – Here’s How
Many of us are familiar with the term ‘skin age’, but did you know there is also such a thing as ‘hair age’?
Like our skin and the various parts of our body, our hair ages too. With age, it grows thin, turns grey, gets dry and brittle, and can lose its shine – these are all signs of ageing when it comes to the hair on our heads.
Maybe you’re touching your hair, wondering if you’re a 20-something with 30-year-old hair. Don’t worry, you’re not alone. In fact, many Singaporeans actually have hair older than they are! That’s simply because there are many factors about the average Singaporean’s lifestyle that can age your hair.
If you’re curious about what some of these factors are, here are 3 things you had no idea are ageing your crowning glory:
1. Sun Damage[caption id="attachment_28910" align="alignnone" width="1429"] Image Credit: Vitalitas Portal[/caption]
Most of us Singaporeans are well familiar with how much sunshine this littler red dot sees (Read: LOTS of sun).
By being out in the sun for a long time, we subject our hair to UVA and UVB rays, which damages the outer covering of our hair strands (the ‘cuticle’), resulting in a dry, dull and brittle mane.
The next time you foresee yourself spending hours under the hot sun, try sporting a cap, or moisturise your tresses with oils, conditioners and treatments to keep them looking youthful and healthy!
2. Over-shampooing[caption id="attachment_28911" align="alignnone" width="648"] Image Credit: Image Credit: Awards TrichoKare has won[/caption]
The brand has won multiple beauty awards, including the Singapore Women’s Weekly Hair Awards 2017 (Best Volumising Treatment For Thinning Hair), Elle Beauty Treat List 2017 (Best Treatment For Hair Loss), Daily Vanity (Top 10 Trusted Hair Treatment Centre 2017), Her World Spa Awards 2016 and Harper’s Bazaar Hair Awards 2016. It also counts celebrities like Xiaxue, Jaynesh and Anand among its clients![caption id="attachment_28914" align="alignnone" width="1343"] TrichoKare counts celebrities like Xiaxue, Jaynesh and Anand among its clients.[/caption]
Whether you find out your hair is 5, 10, or 20 years older than you, TrichoKare’s got your hair needs covered with its new anti-ageing hair treatment.
Their Advanced Age Defying Hair Treatment helps to fight signs of ageing hair. It is specially developed to help both men and women counteract age-related changes in the density and diameter of their hair.[caption id="attachment_28916" align="alignnone" width="663"] Signs of ageing hair[/caption]
The treatment features the new Oxyjet Technology – a needleless jet infusion of oxygen and nutrients used to penetrate deeply into the scalp. It helps to detox the scalp, reactivate up to 80% of dormant hair follicles, accelerate cell regeneration to stimulate hair growth and reduce hair loss.
The key ingredients the hair care specialist uses to counteract ageing hair is:
- Boost the diameter and thickness of each hair
- Reactivate 80% of dormant hair follicles
Gingko Biloba extract
- Counteract signs of scalp ageing
- Boost collagen to increase new hair growth
Beauty Blogger, Rae was sent down to TrichoKare to find out more about the treatment. She took the Advanced Tricho Hair Test conducted by the certified Trichologist. How old was her hair? It was revealed that her hair was 41 years old – a good 7 years older than she is![caption id="attachment_28918" align="alignnone" width="720"] Before[/caption]
(Before)[caption id="attachment_28920" align="alignnone" width="640"] After[/caption]
“After my session with Trichokare, my scalp feels healthier and visibly cleaner than I have ever felt before. With a customised hair treatment, the solution really identifies the root of my problem. In the before scan, you can see the sebum buildup and dry flakes. These were completely removed, I was impressed by the results! I’ve since observed less flakes and reduced hair fall even after 2 weeks. The session with Trichokare definitely taught me on better haircare techniques, what should and should not be done.” – Rae
After just 1 month of treatment, TrichoKare’s customers saw visible changes including a reduction of premature grey hair as well as an increase in hair growth.[caption id="attachment_28921" align="alignnone" width="1159"] Tested & Proven[/caption]
If you’re keen to try TrichoKare’s anti-ageing hair treatment, there’s a special promotion going on right now. You can get the Advanced Age Defying Hair Treatment at just $40, and you’ll have a Hair Care Kit and HairGRO Serum (U.P. $758) thrown in for good measure!
To top off an already sweet deal, you also stand a chance to win a 2D1N staycation at Marina Bay Sands (worth $680) after the trial treatment!

A New Café Gem Has Opened Up On Rangoon Road, And It’s Straight Out Of A Fairy Tale
Ever wish you could escape into a perfect fairy tale world?
Now, you can! Well, at least for lunch.[caption id="attachment_26841" align="alignnone" width="2048"] Image Credit: Enchanted Cafe Facebook[/caption]
The beautiful and charming Enchanted Cafe has just opened up along Rangoon Road, for you to dine and while away your weekends in a fantasy world.
First things first, the aesthetic of this place is on point!
Entering into this cafe is like stepping foot into the fairy tale garden of your dreams–the only things missing are actual fairies.
Picture a wooden shelf lined with large vintage books, twigs and potted plants hanging from the ceiling, fairy lights draped down branches and across the walls, and quirky, mismatched tables and chairs filling the space.[caption id="attachment_26680" align="aligncenter" width="1628"] Image Credit: Image Credit: The food and drinks at Enchanted Cafe are just as dreamy, both in terms of taste and presentation.
Something you can’t miss is the theatrical Sorcerer’s Elixir ($9.90)–also the most instagram-worthy of them all.
It starts as a blue drink, set in a stone dish, surrounded by wispy smoke. Add an orange “potion”, swirl it all together, and it transforms into a deep, glittery purple.[caption id="attachment_26678" align="aligncenter" width="1920"] Image Credit: Image Credit: Enchanted Cafe Facebook[/caption]
Also on the menu are brunch favourites like the Big Breakkie ($17.90), as well as the Croque Madame ($14.90).
The standout item on the menu, however, would have to be a traditional favourite with a twist: The Ngoh Hiang Burger ($18.90).
This unique burger adds a touch of familiar Singaporean flavour to the otherwise fantasy-like setting.
Expect a tender pork patty marinated in five-spice seasoning, complete with bits of water chestnut, and black garlic sauce that’s made from scratch.[caption id="attachment_26683" align="aligncenter" width="1188"] Image Credit: Ng Yi Yang[/caption]
And don’t leave without ordering dessert!
Your best bet here is the French Vanilla Crepe Cake.
The thin pancakes are fluffy, with generous layers of light, airy cream slathered in between. Perfect after a hearty meal.[caption id="attachment_26684" align="aligncenter" width="1192"] Image Credit: The_XW[/caption]
Next weekend, why not bring your friends and camera here, for the perfect meal and #ootd!

The best part? They are all selling at just $2.90!
Having one (or more!) of these beautifully presented babies as an afternoon snack will have us powering through the day for sure.
Pastries, Deserts & Coffee
Besides its unique savoury donuts, Six By Sera sells other amazing pastries as well, such as their signature croissants!
They are fragrant, buttery, flaky and airy–everything you could possibly want in a croissant.[caption id="attachment_26407" align="aligncenter" width="1190"] Image Credit: Six By Sera[/caption]
Like the donuts here, the croissants comes in several unique, inventive flavours. These include the Smoky Pork Croissant ($12.90, served on weekends only), Scrambled Eggs & Bacon Croissant ($10.90), and Cheesecake Croissant ($6.60).
A local favourite with a modern twist would be the Chili Crab Croissant ($11.90).

Take A Swing At The Fragment Room – The Only Place In S’pore Where Violence Is The Cure
Living in Singapore comes with no small amount of stress.
For students and working adults alike, sometimes it gets to a point where it’s all just too much, when all you want to do is scream, hit or break something to let all that pent up frustration out.
The Fragment Room[caption id="attachment_25827" align="alignnone" width="819"] Image Credit: The Fragment Room [/caption]
Lucky for us, The Fragment Room is offering itself up as an outlet for you to let out all that stress.
Located along Balestier Road, the premise of The Fragment Room is simple: you’re given half an hour (or more, depending on whether you need it) to smash everyday objects to smithereens.
Providing you with a safe space, everyday objects like plates, cups and electronics, and a baseball bat to smash up all of those things, The Fragment Room is a non-traditional form of anger therapy that will get your heart pumping.
Don’t worry about injuring yourself at The Fragment Room. Even with broken glass and electronics strewn on the floor, you’ll be decked out in safety gear so you’re 100% safe from flying debris.
The Fragment Room offers up 3 standard packages.
There is the Single ($38), which offers up 1 crate of breakables for 30 mins, and there’s also the all out Annihilation ($220), which gives you a full hour, a sledgehammer and unlimited crates for you to vent to your heart’s content.
A third package called the Double lets you double up with a friend and wreak all kinds of havoc for 30 mins, over the contents of 2 crates.[caption id="attachment_25825" align="alignnone" width="819"] Image Credit: The Fragment Room[/caption]
If you’re an environmentalist who’s stressed out, fret not! All the breakables sourced by The Fragment Room are from scrap yards, so you’re not contributing to wastage or harming the planet!
Whatever is stressing you out, let it all out at The Fragment Room and unleash that inner hulk. Here, no one is judging.
