Yishun Hindu Temple Visited By Covid-19 Cases On 31 Jul, Close Contacts Notified

Covid-19 Case Visited Holy Tree Sri Balasubramaniar Temple In Yishun

The Ministry of Health (MOH) added 1 new location to its list of places visited by infected Covid-19 cases on Tuesday (4 Aug).

You can check the full list here.

Notably, an infected Covid-19 case visited a Hindu temple located in Yishun for 2 hours on 31 Jul.

Currently, places of worship allow up to 50 gatherers, with safe distancing measures applied.

Yishun Hindu temple visited by Covid-19 case

The Holy Tree Sri Balasubramaniar Temple is the most recent and only one added by MOH on 4 Aug.

The case was at the temple on Friday (31 Jul) between 7-9pm.

It is not known as to how many were gathered at the temple at the time.

However, MOH will have identified close contacts of the patient and either isolated or done contact tracing.

No need to avoid locations

The number of community cases have been declining recently, and most cases detected are asymptomatic.

This may partly explain the relative lack of places in the list in the past 2 weeks.

But those who happened to be in the locations on the list should monitor their health for 14 days from the date of visitation.

Those who show symptoms of acute respiratory infection should see a doctor and tell them about your location history.

MOH reiterates that there’s no need to avoid any of the locations, as they’ll have been cleaned and disinfected by management.

Stay vigilant and remember to check in

Thanks in part to active testing, our contact tracing, and SafeEntry check-ins, authorities are able to catch Covid-19 cases.

That and the fact that most of us are being vigilant.

With your help, hopefully we can see better days soon.

Hotel Mono – Singapore’s First Black And White Boutique Hotel Opens In Chinatown

Monochrome Madness

Many hotels are famous for their cutting-edge design, but this is the first one we’ve heard of that’s based on just two colours: Black and White.

If you are looking for a trendy place to host your birthday parties or an aesthetic #monochromemonday photo from your staycations, look no further.

The highly anticipated Hotel Mono, Singapore’s first Black and White hotel, is now open in Chinatown.

Source

Both the exterior and the interior of the hotel are completely monochromatic, and provide a much-needed break from the colourful and vibrant colours that are prolific in Chinatown.

Source

Amazing Rooms

They say good things come in small packages, and Hotel Mono proves this axiom to be true. Stretching across 6 shophouses, the hotel comprises just 46 rooms, so book super early if you want to experience this visual masterpiece.

The 46 rooms are split into 6 types, each catering to different groups of travellers.

Let’s take a virtual tour:

Single Rooms

Source

The room may be for one, but it’s still spacious. Perfect for the solo traveller with a soft spot for the minimalist aesthetic.

Twin Rooms

All twin rooms have 2 super single beds.

Source

Even the bathrooms are in monochrome.

Source

Double Rooms/Double Plus

With a queen-sized bed, a double room is perfect for a staycation with your significant other.

Source

 

Of course, if you need a little more space, and would fancy a view of the bustling streets of Chinatown, you could opt for the Double Plus rooms, which come with big windows.

Studio Rooms

For some of you, the idea of being in a small room is rather irksome. Fret not, the studio rooms are available to save the day. Each one is like a mini-apartment:

With both a king-sized bed and a sofa bed, it’s the perfect place to crash after a party or a night of painting the town red.

Family Room

An avid minimalist but can’t find a babysitter for your kids? Don’t worry, Hotel Mono even boasts a Family room.

Source

Amenities

While the rooms may differ in styles and size, one thing stays constant: Great amenities.

Each room comes with the now-standard free high-speed Wi-Fi Internet access, powerful air-conditioning, an attached bathroom and daily housekeeping. Refreshments such as coffee and tea are provided too.

Wanna have a movie marathon? Rooms are stocked with flat-screen TVs with cable service.

And for your beauty sleep, Hotel Mono provides each rooms the luxury of a pocketed spring bed with micro-gel fibre pillows.

It doesn’t get any better than this.

Location, Location, Location

When opening any hotel, accessibility is the most important thing.

The people behind Hotel Mono must have understood this completely, and they have chosen a location right smack in the middle of Chinatown.

The hotel is a stone’s throw away from all the attractions Chinatown has to offer, and is also mere minute away from Chinatown MRT.

Eats

Although the hotel may not offer gourmet breakfasts, the location it seem as though you are virtually surrounded by food. With the plethora of food that you can find in Chinatown, it’s almost impossible that your tummy will be unsatisfied.

Source

Sale!

Nothing gets Singaporeans more excited that a promotion. This is no different.

Hotel Mono is offering an early bird promotion, with rooms going for 20% less than their normal prices. The promotion ends on June 1, so gather your kakis and book your staycation now!

You can book your rooms via the Hotel Mono website to enjoy the offer.

Don’t say bojio!

This Hokkaido Ice Village Has Igloo Beds & A Crystal Chapel For Weddings

Hoshino Resorts Tomamu Hosts Pristine Weddings In A Crystal Chapel

Those of us who’ve grown up in tropical climates often dream of winter wonderlands, crystalline snowflakes — especially after Disney’s hit movie Frozen.

While the holiday season has ended, the winter season is far from over. If you’re headed to Japan to see the Sakura trees in Feb, we’ve found a gorgeous ice hotel with rooms entirely made out of sculptured ice just for you!

Source

Ready to sleep like a king or queen of winter? We’ve done some research on your behalf and here’s what’s awaiting you in this luxurious destination.

Ice hotel with outdoor bath

Hoshino Resorts Tomamu boasts of an ice hotel that’s open from 19 Jan to 28 Feb.

The domed-shaped space is entirely built of ice with the walls and ceilings shining like illuminated crystals. Beds consist of expertly cut ice slabs topped with a sleeping bag which can endure extremely cold temperatures.

Source

If you’re not used to the cold, suit up and prepare for temperatures to drop between 14⁰C to 30⁰C below freezing.

Source

A night at any Japanese hotel isn’t complete without a hot bath, and you can get one here too, whilst surrounded by shimmering ice. The winter forest and bright lights make it the perfect place to relax and enjoy the Chinese New Year.

Source

After you’ve indulged in a warm bath, you can sit back and grab your favorite drinks at their after-bath ice lounge. We’re not too sure about the reclined seats because thick blocks of ice aren’t exactly comfy.

Source

We’re sorry to burst your bubble, but luxurious destinations come with a hefty price tag. One night at their ice hotel is 23000¥ or $287.

Ice Village

Don’t have the budget to book a one-night stay in their ice hotel? No worries!

You can drop by their ice village for 500¥ or S$6! If you stay at their other hotels like RISONARE Tomamu or Tomamu The Tower – which are not made of ice – a trip to the village is free of charge.

Source

The ice village is composed of ice rinks, bars and cafes.

Bookworms can lounge in the Ice Books & Café where they can binge on books or read their Kindles whilst relishing the warmth of the fireplace. The fire is contained around a special glass so there’s no need to worry about drops of water landing on the pages.

Source

We’re sure you’ve dreamed about ice castles, but what about ice bars?

Their Ice Bar has more than 50 kinds of hard liquor and cocktail. You can even add an underground water from the “perpetual snow” of Daisetsuzan Mountain – also known as the water for long life.

Source

Parents bringing their kids along for the trip can join an activity called Ice Gao.

Here, children can play ice musical instruments, freezing soap bubbles and sculpt ice glass and keychains.

Source

Of course, no village is complete without a playground, so get on their ice slides and brace yourself for a fun-filled ride from the village’s overlook deck to the ice rink.

Source

Since we grew up in a hot climate, we’re definitely not confident about our ice skating skills. But you’ll definitely be tempted to rent a pair of skates and lace your boots once you’ve seen their ice rinks at night!

Source

Ice chapel

Frozen fans rejoice!

From 19 Jan to 15 Feb, their weddings ceremonies are held in an ice chapel that has a cross, altar, and chairs which are also made of ice. Now all you need is an Elsa-approved dress to make your once-in-a-lifetime walk down the aisle.

Source

Skiis & snowmobiles

For thrill-seekers and adventure lovers, a trip to Japan isn’t over until you’ve skied down slopes and ridden snowmobiles.

Source

You’ll be happy to find that the resort has an easy auto gate system that lets you visit their majestic mountaintops and bask on these scenic views.

Source

Those who don’t ski or snowboard can always opt for their Moonlight Snowmobile Tour. Have fun dashing through the snow whilst looking at the exceptionally beautiful pine trees and the bright full moon.

Source

The ski resort and snowmobiles are only available from December to March.

Booking a trip to this Frozen wonderland?

Now that Hoshino Resorts Tomamu is definitely on your radar, how do you get there?

You can book a flight from Singapore to New Chitose Airport via Scoot, Thai Airlines and Japan Airlines. From there, ride the Sapporo railway station and exit at Tomamu station. A shuttle bus to the resort will be waiting once you arrive. You can check out their website for more details.

If you can’t afford the $287 per night stay in their ice hotel, you can always check out their non-frozen accommodations on their website. The admission fee for their ice village is only
500¥ or $6! Thrill-seekers eager to try winter sports and other activities can check prices here.

There’s many options to choose from no matter your budget – so you can have a magical holiday without breaking the bank.

Address: Nakatomamu, Shimukappu, Yufutsu District, Hokkaido 079-2204, Japan

Legendary T2 Changi Airport McDonald’s To Close In Jan 2020 After 16 Years Of Operation

Popular Mugging Spot At Changi Airport T2 McDonald’s Is Closing In Jan 2020

One peculiarity about Singapore is just how accessible the airport is. A simple train or bus ride is enough to get there, and coupled with its wondrous 24-hour restaurants like McDonald’s, Changi Airport has become the symbol of students mugging at food joints.

But all good things must come to an end, and just as with other iconic Mac’s over the years such as King Albert Park and the alfresco outlet at Shaw Centre, Changi Airport’s Terminal 2 (T2) will be saying goodbye to its own Mac’s after 16 years of operation.

Source

A netizen on Reddit’s r/singapore subreddit, dkmag, delivered the heartbreaking news on 22 Dec (Sun).

Source

The reason for the McDonald’s closure is that Changi Airport is expanding T2 over a 5-year period, reported The Straits Times.

This means that the spacious and memory-filled place we knew and loved will have to shut after 16 years.

Popular study spot due to spacious area

Despite occasional grouses from Singaporeans who can’t fathom why students would use cafes and restaurants as study spots, the practice has endured and one of their favourite midnight haunts at T2 has to be the McDonald’s.

Why McDonald’s at T2 in particular? Well, it’s plenty spacious compared to the other Mac’s located in T3 and T4.

Source

This alone makes it less likely that staff will kick you out for staying there the entire night.

Tech-savvy students will prefer other places such as Krispy Kreme or Starbucks, but those who study the old-school way – with pen, foolscap paper and a mountain of past year papers – will find Mac’s more than sufficient for their needs.

Supper spot and chill area before flights

Of course, this being Changi Airport, food is in abundance and it is a foodie haunt in its own right.

Before East areas like Tampines sprouted 24-hour Mac’s of their own, Changi Airport, just a short trip away, was a popular spot for a good ol’ midnight McSpicy meal.

Source

Or perhaps you were catching a flight at the ungodly hour of 7am and you’ve got to have a Big Breakfast and coffee at 4am – McDonald’s was that trusty friend who’d always be there, 24 hours a day.

Source

Back in Singapore after a lengthy trip overseas? One of the first things you’ll see after landing is none other than the McDonald’s.

Cue a quick comfort meal as your welcome home, back in the days before Jewel was a thing.

Certainly, there’s much to remember about this particular McDonald’s.

Farewell, Changi Airport T2 McDonald’s

For many, this Mac’s holds fond memories – be it a late night cram session or just a supper spot before catching a flight out, there was always something familiar about it that made travellers and Singaporeans alike flock up the stairs, past the Ronald McDonald statue.

Source

Yes, there are other Mac’s available at T3 and T4, but we’re still sad to see this one go.

According to the poster by dkmag on Reddit, the T2 outlet will close at the stroke of midnight on 31 Jan 2020, so you have slightly over a month to have your last throwback meal there.

Did you have any memorable experiences at the Changi Airport T2 McDonald’s? Let us know in the comments!

Bangkok’s Cafe La Rose Has An Entire Wall Of Roses & Egglet Rose Gelato Cones From S$5

Cafe La Rose In Bangkok Has A Gorgeous Flower Garden With Edible Roses To Boot

The sight of gorgeous flowers isn’t new to locals who frequent Gardens by the Bay. We all know at least one person who absolutely loves to take pictures of florals for their pastel-themed ‘gram, but who knew that you could eat them too?

We’ve recently discovered that Cafe La Rose in Bangkok lets you sip tea within an exquisite flower-covered interior whilst eating literal roses too.

Source

The cafe is a pastel paradise with walls and roofs intricately decorated with pink, orange and red blossoms.

Source

Let’s take a peek inside this beautiful cafe in the heart of Ari, Bangkok.

Gorgeous floral fantasy land

Couples looking for a chic date hangout in Bangkok can impress their dates by suggesting this romantic destination.

Source

Guests who are single but looking to mingle can hang out at the rose bar to order some flower-themed drinks. They say love comes when you least expect it, so who knows what could happen once you spark a conversation with that charming person holding a sparkling rose champagne flute?

Source

While waiting for your order, explore the corners adorned with fairy lights and meticulously arranged bouquets.

Source

The usual coffee shops provide you with a clear view of your laptop, but this hole-in-the-wall lets you revel under a vibrant tree of flowers.

Source

Floral concoctions from S$5

The establishment sells rose gelato scoops, rose imbued floral teas, and other spectacular desserts themed around flowers for a reasonable price.

Source

This chocolate lava cake is topped with homemade rose ice cream. They say it’s not too sweet, but we’re curious to discover the taste of a rose-flavoured dessert for S$12.99 ($300 Baht).

Source

Their rose bouquet ice-cream is the cherry-on-top of a cone of thicc egglet waffle. We absolutely adore the Pocky sticks with wee little edible flower sweets as toppings.

The rose-shaped filling looks so heavenly and we pray it doesn’t melt before you get a good pic.

Source

Hands up if you already knew that rainbow-coloured rice noodles were a thing? We sure hope the dish tastes as good as it looks. Be warned that this version is on the spicy side with chili peppers, lemon, shrimp and onions.

Source

Consider their stunning ombre Italian sodas in different colours and flavours for a refreshing break from the scorchingly hot tropical weather for S$5.20 (120 Baht).

Source

How to get there

Cafe La Rose is near the neighbourhood of Ari in Bangkok and easily accessible by the BTS train line.

It’s along Phibun Wattana 10 Alley and a few metres from Bangkok’s Natural Resources and Environmental Policy and Planning building.

Since it’s inside the neighbourhood, commuters could also take a tuk tuk or motorbike from the train station. Parking spots are available for drivers.

Cafe La Rose

Address: 66 Phibun Wattana 10, Khwaeng Samsen Nai, Khet Phaya Thai, Krung Thep Maha Nakhon 10400, Thailand
Opening Hours: Tues to Sun, 11:00am – 10:00pm, Closed on Mondays
Nearest Train: Ari BTS Station

We can’t think of a better place to stop and smell the roses than Cafe La Rose. They say roses smell sweet and aromatic — but if you do visit, tell us if it tastes good too in the comments.

S’pore Nightclubs To Let Up To 100 People In, Only Residents & Work Pass Holders May Enter

Singapore Nightclubs To Allow Up To 100 People & Karaoke Lounges For Groups Of 5 Inside Rooms

Shopping and eating to our hearts’ content may be enough to keep many of us happy, but some need a different outlet to let loose. Frequent patrons of karaoke lounges and nightclubs will thus be happy to know that they’ll be welcoming people again soon.

Source

As part of the pilot programme, up to 100 people will be able to enter nightclubs and groups of 5 may share 1 karaoke room.

This is on top of the previous safe management measures the Singapore Nightlife Businesss Association announced earlier on 6 Nov.

Here’s what nightlife junkies can look forward to.

Nightclubs to split people into zones of 50

Sweaty bodies in a crowded room may be the usual scene at clubs, but the current pandemic will see a slight change to that.

The few clubs reopening in the programme will have to allow only a maximum of 100 people at any one time, reports Channel NewsAsia (CNA).

Source

They will then split patrons further into 2 separate zones of 50, which will have dining and dancing areas each.

There will, however, be no live music or performances.

Only local residents & Work Pass holders allowed

In addition to the separate zones, the pilot reopening also entails the following safe management measures:

  • negative Covid-19 test within the past 24 hours to gain entry
  • mandatory wearing of masks
  • keeping a safe distance of 2m between groups (indicated by markings & barriers)

Source

Before fulfilling the above criteria, patrons must first have to be local residents or Work Pass holders, reports The Straits Times (ST).

Those on business or official visits here will thus be unable to enter nightspots.

Up to 5 per group in each karaoke room

Likewise, the above criteria apply to karaoke lounge patrons too.

The only difference is that individual rooms within the lounges may allow up to 5 people in a group. They may eat and drink inside, after which the rooms will be disinfected 15 minutes before the next session.

According to CNA, the following number of entertainment venues will be reopening:

  • 10 pubs & bars
  • 10 karaoke lounges
  • 5 nightclubs

While the pilot for pubs and bars will begin in Dec and last for 2 months, karaoke lounges and nightclubs will only reopen in Jan 2021 as they need more time to prepare.

The Jan 2021 reopening will likely last for 3 months if risks remain low, so brace yourselves for that.

Partake in social activities safely & responsibly

Though this latest update beckons more exciting things to look forward to as the new year approaches, we should remember that the pandemic is still far from over.

With Phase 3 possibly lasting for a long time, we can expect many precautionary measures to stay in place or even be tightened.

Regardless, let’s embrace the changes while adhering to the rules, to ensure that we all remain safe and can resume normal life eventually.

ActiveSG Sports Halls To Close On 28 Jun, After Users Breach Safe Distancing Rules

All ActiveSG Indoor Sports Halls To Close For A Day-Long “Timeout” On 28 Jun

News of a Covid-19 patient who had met a large group of people to socialise and play badminton with sent shockwaves across Singapore.

Now, Sport Singapore is taking emergency action in an attempt to address the issue — by closing all ActiveSG indoor sports halls.

The closure will only be for 1 day tomorrow (28 Jun) as a sort of “timeout”, reports The Straits Times (ST).

Positive Covid-19 case flouted safe distancing rules

Sport Singapore decided on the closure after a user of one of the ActiveSG sports halls tested positive for Covid-19 recently.

The patient had played badminton at Jurong East Indoor Sports Hall on Monday (22 Jun), along with several others.

The exact headcount is unknown, but Channel NewsAsia (CNA) stated that they had in total booked up to 6 courts, and switched around despite the physical partitions.

As a result, all the people he crossed paths with are now under quarantine, and the sports hall has to close over the weekend for disinfection.

Closure of ActiveSG sports halls to ensure users understand rules

To take some time to review the incident and safe management measures, Sport Singapore will be closing all indoor sports halls for a day tomorrow (28 Jun).

This is to give staff and users time to fully understand the rules that govern the usage of the space, especially amidst the pandemic.

Source

For a full list of safety guidelines, you can visit ActiveSG’s website here.

After tomorrow, Sport Singapore intends to take stricter action on users who break the rules. Those who plan to gather in sports facilities for instance will face booking cancellations or rejections.

They also won’t be able to use ActiveSG facilities in the future.

Be responsible citizens

If not for the unfortunate case of the user, the closure of ActiveSG sports halls even for a day, probably wouldn’t have happened.

Whether it affects you or not, we should all take this opportunity to reflect on our own actions thus far.

The fight against the Covid-19 pandemic is a universal one, so let’s do our best together and be more responsible.
