From Merlions To Durians, These Uniquely S’pore Ice Cream Creations Will Make You Melt

Though we live in the tropics, we never cease to complain about how bloody hot the weather is. Recently, temperatures have managed to hit a high of 35 Degrees Celsius and IT IS NOT OKAY.

In response to this ridiculous heat, I’ve taken at least 3 cold showers per day over the weekend, and consumed enough Magnum ice creams to develop lactose intolerance. Okay, I exaggerate but you get my point.

Speaking of ice cream, Esplanade recently saw the opening of a local artisanal ice cream shop.

Introducing, Leeu SG.

You Mean, We Can Eat The Merlion?

With a logo of a lion’s head that looks way better than LiHo’s, this local artisanal ice cream is making waves across the nation for their iconic Merlion ice pop, The Icy Merlion.

[caption id="attachment_35226" align="aligncenter" width="752"]Leeu SG Image Credit: Esplanade[/caption]

The Icy Merlion is Vanilla and Strawberry-flavoured, because red and white are our national colours.

[caption id="attachment_35229" align="aligncenter" width="667"]Leeu SG Image Credit: imgflip[/caption]

That’s not all, there’s also a durian ice cream, aptly named The “Esplanade” that’s made to look like a durian.

[caption id="attachment_35227" align="aligncenter" width="752"]Leeu SG Image Credit: Esplanade[/caption]

Other items on the menu include soda floats and soft serve ice creams.

Choose from 4 different soda floats, each with their own locally-inspired names.

The lychee-flavoured Sentosa Breeze, The Red Dot with peach soda, The Zouk-Out Cure with yuzu lemon ginger soda, and The Old Timer which is a pandan-infused milk beancurd float.

Their soft serves are made with Blue Majik. No it’s not a drug. Blue Majik is a new superfood that’s a derivative of sea algae spirulina.

Every soft serve is served (no pun intended) in a normal or charcoal Taiyaki (Japanese fish-shaped waffle).

For the month of June, Leeu SG will be selling their local desserts at discounted prices. Get your Merlion Ice Pop at $3.80 (U.P $4.80) and the Esplanade Ice Cream at $8.80 (U.P $11.80).

And lastly, you will be able to buy a unicorn float for $1 with any purchase of a drink.

[caption id="attachment_35228" align="aligncenter" width="1080"]Leeu SG Image Credit: @leahyhlee[/caption]

Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to get myself a Merlion to munch on and get that adorable AF unicorn float. Peace.

A Poke Theory’s Alter Ego Serves Up Irresistibly Sinful Food You Cannot Say No To

It has only been a few months since the official opening of A Poke Theory but they have successfully spinned a Poke Bowl craze. And this ain’t stoping them. Their sister concept, Alter Ego, will be opening its doors to the public on 5th November 2016.

Alter Ego at the Esplanade

Alter Ego is the second food concept launched by the Tandem Collective group.


Wanting to reignite the F&B space amongst locals, they have chosen to venture into the Esplanade as it is a familiar space to our local musicians and creatives.


Just like A Poke Theory, Alter Ego will not compromise on their menu.


Their ever famous healthy and delectable poke and smoothie bowls are still the primary focus during the daytime.


But as night falls, you get to choose from a delightful selection of entry-level craft beers and diet-ruining bar grubs.

Try the Loaded Taters if you are more adventurous.

Crisp tater tots are doused mercilessly in spicy jalapeño cheese sauce, maple-glazed bacon & sour cream.

Different layers of flavours bursting in your mouth all at once is definitely going to give your taste buds a treat. Oh yum.

Their Buffalo Wings look tantalising too.


Twice-baked and tossed in their spicy and tangy buffalo sauce, the wings look oh so good! We can’t wait to get our hands dirty.


Decked out in raw industrial fittings of oxidised iron, copper, cement and organic teak, Alter Ego is set to be an open and creative space in the daylight.

But as the sun sets, it transforms into a darker, dangerously inviting place with scrawling secret messages unveiling themselves on their dimming wall murals.

Here is a big cheer to a new creative and beautiful space perfect for long awaited catch-up sessions with our mates!

10 Proposal Spots In Singapore For That Special Someone You Want To BTO With

Proposals. They’re nerve wrecking enough without having to worry about the where, when and how. And with SO MANY proposals that are so amazing and out of this world (spoil market!) , we’re not going to blame you if you’re clueless on where to propose! We asked a few Singaporean ladies where’s a great place to be proposed to, and they gave us a simple yet oddly complicated answer:

“What kind of girl is she?”

Simple enough right? Find out what she enjoys doing and you’ve pretty settled on where you’re going to propose! If you’ve still haven’t found THE perfect place to propose. Don’t worry! We complied a list of the most romantic places in Singapore to propose!

If She Likes Nature..

Henderson Wave

[caption id="attachment_14249" align="alignnone" width="1024"]henderson-wave used to be THE SPOT to go dating and hang out with friends way back in the mid 2000s. To get up to Henderson Wave used to be quite an adventure, you had to take public transport before taking quite a hike up to the structure.

At 36 meters above the ground, Henderson Waves bridge is the highest pedestrian bridge in Singapore.  If your girlfriend is a fan of nature, bring her on the Southern Ridges Walk, a 5 kilometer hiking trail that takes you through Telok Blagah Hill Park and Mounth Faber.

Pack a picnic and sit down at the Henderson Waves right about sunset. You’ll be able to admire the setting sun against the backdrop of distant residential blocks, the perfect background for a romantic proposal.

Southern Ridges
Henderson Road, Southern Ridges, Bukit Merah, S159557
Contact: 800 471 7300

Little Guilin

[caption id="attachment_14252" align="alignnone" width="1024"]little-guiliun Bukit Batok Park, Little Guilin got its name due to its similarity to that of Guilin in China. What attracts locals all over Singapore to come here is the granite rock sitting within the lake (an anomaly in any other parks in Singapore). There are two shelters  right across from the lake giving you a breathtaking view of the tranquil lake.

Bring your girlfriend here right after an early dinner, the fantastic view combined with the setting sun is the perfect backdrop for a proposal she won’t be able to refuse!

If You’re Planning To Propose After Dinner…

Dinner and proposals go hand in hand, how can she say ‘Yes!’ on an empty stomach? If you’re keen on proposing right after dinner (or even during dinner), head over to these places.  You can grab dinner at the restaurants nearby and pop the question against the amazing backdrop!

Faber Peak

Esplanade Rooftop

[caption id="attachment_14247" align="alignnone" width="1024"]esplanade tuper_misc[/caption]


Another old favourite amongst teens back in the mid 2000s. Offering views of Marina Bay and the city skyline, this outdoor space is a quiet getaway from the hustle and bustle downstairs. The roof terrace is landscaped with manicured lawns, benches and small shrubs and trees, so it’s a change of landscape from the modern architecture of CBD Singapore.

There are so many great restaurants around this area, including rooftop restaurant The Esplanade Co Ltd
1 Esplanade Drive, Singapore 038981

Quayside Isle

[caption id="attachment_14254" align="alignnone" width="1600"]quayside-isle ,is that its quieter than Marina At Keppel Bay, yet gives the same air of luxury! It’s also home to the lavish National Gallery[/caption]

If you’re a true blue Singaporean you would know that the National Gallery occupies two of Singapore’s landmarks; the Old Supreme Court and City Hall. The history of this building dates back to the 1920s where it was first named the Municipal Building.

The Supreme Court and the adjacent City Hall underwent a thorough restoration from 2012 until its grand opening in 2015.

If you’ve stepped into the National Gallery you would know that most if not all of the original architecture still remains. Let’s be honest, the art work pales in comparison to the grandeur of this national monument.

What’s great about the National Gallery is that the architecture and overall feel is dependent on which section of the National Gallery you’re at. The Ng Teng Fong Roof Garden Gallery, the Former Supreme Court Foyer and Inside the Rotunda are amazing places to propose!

National Gallery
1 St Andrew’s Road Singapore, #01-01, S178957
Opening Hours: Sun – Thu; 10am – 7pm; Fri – Sat: 10am – 10pm
Contact: 6690 9400

If You Have Some Money To Spend…

If you’re intending to splurge on the proposal and you’re seeking a place which is extra special, we’ve got you covered. Proposals are a once in a lifetime event, what better way to splurge on dinner then to have it amongst the stars!

Sky Dining

(image credit: is once in a life time experience. The 2 hour cable car ride makes 3 rounds between Mount Faber, HarbourFront and Sentosa! Dinner starts from 6pm and will set you back about $300 for a 4-course meal.

Seeking something extra special? Go for the Floral Cabin, specially designed and decorated with flowers, the Floral Cabin will set you back almost $500.

But really,for the breathtaking view you’re going to experience, isn’t it worth it?

We recommend you book a few weeks in advance especially if you’re planning to propose on a special occasion such as Valentine’s Day.

Singapore Flyer

(image credit: Yummy Singapore)

Standing at 165m (about the height of a 42 storey building!), the Singapore Flyer is one the largest Observation Wheels in the world. The Flyer was launched in 2008 and has been a feature in the city skyline since.

If you’ve ever been in on it and thought the capsule would be a romantic place to propose, you’re in luck! You can have dinner here! , be prepared to drop $1,800! While the menu provided is similar to the one provided in Premium Sky Dining Flight, you do get a bottle of Premium Champagne and a bouquet of roses!

Singapore’s Lost Elegance

Modern Singapore stands today, close to 200 years after it came into being as a trading post, as one of the most advanced cities in the world. Icons of the new age now dominate the metropolis, its financial district, much of which came up on land that was made out of marshland and water, is now an amazing maze of glass and steel for which the sky seems the only limit.

Against all of this, it probably will be difficult to imagine Singapore as having been anything other than a city of skyscrapers – even if some fragments of the past are still found within the modern world; certainly not the elegant municipality it seemed to be a century ago as postcards and photographs from the era certainly depict. Having the air, almost, of a European urban centre, the commercial centre of the municipality had by the centenary of its founding, already taken on the appearance of the “great commercial emporium” its founder, Stamford Raffles, had envisioned of it.

Progress has seen that that charming and dignified old Singapore could not survive. The 1950s was probably when the beginning of the end came with the addition of the first “skyscrapers” to the waterfront (interestingly there was an attempt to limit the height of buildings at the waterfront back in the 1920s to a height of 96′ 6″). Much was also to follow, especially in the post independent years and by the 1970s the face of the financial district would drastically be changed.  The 1970s also saw substantial amounts of land being reclaimed, creating the land on which Singapore has built its city of future.

Empress Place and Princess Square


The statue of the founder of modern Singapore, Raffles, was moved to (its current location at) Empress Place from the Padang on the occasion of the centenary of British Singapore’s founding. The colonnade seen around it was damaged and removed during the war years.


Another view of Empress Place, with the Fullerton Building (completed 1928) already constructed.


Princess Square – looking up High Street towards Fort Canning Light. The Singapore Cricket Club is on the right and the Hotel de L’Europe stands at the location of old Supreme Court (now part of the National Gallery).

Battery Road/ Fullerton Square


Fullerton Square, before the Fullerton Building came up. Part of the first HongKong Bank Chambers can be seen on the left. The Exchange and the old General Post Office on the right is where the Fullerton now stands.


Battery Road, seen with the Tan Kim Seng fountain (since moved to Esplanade Park)


Another view of Battery Road at Fullerton Square. The Medical Hall is where the Straits Trading Building now stands.


Battery Road at the turn of the century. The Dispensary, at the corner of Bonham Street is where 6 Battery Road (Chartered Bank) now stands.

Another view of Robinson Road.

Collyer Quay and the lost waterfront

Built along a bund constructed by convict labour in the mid-1800s, Collyer Quay was completed in 1864 and was soon lined with rather grand looking edifices. By the time the road was widened in the second decade of the 1900s through further reclamation, buildings such as the Alkaff’s Arcade and the five storey St. Helen’s Court had already been erected.

Now around which some of the tallest buildings are found, limits on the height of buildings along the waterfront was a subject of much discussion in the 1920s. In 1921, the Municipal Commission took a decision to limit the height of buildings along the waterfront to 96′ 6″ (about 29.5 metres), the height of St. Helen’s Court. This was to permit “much needed circulation of air at ground”. This was to however be challenged by the architects for soon to be built Union Building, who were successful in having the restrictions relaxed despite objections. One objection raised by John Little’s positioned behind the new building was motivated by a concern that the height of the Union Building would be of “disadvantage and inconvenience to them in the matter of light” (see: The Singapore Free Press and Mercantile Advertiser, 30 January 1922).


Collyer Quay in the late 19th century. The first HongKong and Shanghai Bank chambers (completed in 1892) can be seen at the near end.


A view from the far end of Collyer Quay at Finlayson Green. Princes Building, the 1909 built Alkaff’s Arcade can be seen along with 5 storey St. Helen’s Court. St. Helen’s Court, which was later to be renamed Shell House and subsequently Clifford House after the new 15 storey Shell House was built, was then the tallest building along Collyer Quay


Collyer Quay in the 1930s, with the second Ocean Building (built in 1924) along with Princes Building, the Arcade, St. Helen’s Court, Union Building (1924) and the Fullerton Building (GPO, 1928) already up. Trolley buses had by that time replaced trams as public transport.
