Joy of Youth - Photohunt


PhotoHunt theme : Youth /Joy

I'm youth, I'm joy,
I'm a little bird that has broken out of the egg.
James M. Barrie (1860 - 1937)

Youths from different parts of the world arrived in Singapore to participate in our annual Lunar New Year Chingay Parade.


It was such a spectacular and fun event. There was joy on every face.

Singapore's First Life-sized Seashell Race Car @ Royal Plaza on Scotts - WW


Saw this creative life-sized seashells race car displayed outside Royal Plaza on Scotts (RP). The hotel created the first life-sized seashells race car in the world to celebrate Singapore's seventh night motor racing season which will commence on 19 September.

The culinary team of 10 chefs and culinary staff, led by RP’s Executive Chef Darren Ong, took 1130 hours to complete this structure which measures 4.40 metres long, 1.90 metres wide and 1.30 metres tall. A total of 14,880 shells (scallops, clams, mussels and oysters) were collected to decorate the car. The shells are from seafood consumed at the hotel's buffets.

In previous years, the culinary team has created other life-sized race cars with chocolate, pasta,  macaroons and bread.

La Ramblas in Fantasia by Escriba


I have not been to Barcelona. Two months ago, I watched a Korean TV reality show which was shot in Barcelona. After seeing the beautiful city on the show, I want to visit it one day.

At Fantasia by Escriba, visitors had a taste of the city of Barcelona. There was a faithful replica of the façade of the original Pasteleria Escriba, a world heritage site built in 1820. Also a rendition of its iconic La Ramblas shopping boulevard. Guests could purchase mini masterpieces including caramel rings, chocolate shoes and sugar flowers.

The candy sculptures are so incredibly detailed. I can't bear to eat them.
