Instead of boarding planes, this time you can sit in a little go-kart and whiz up and down the roads around Changi Airport.

From Thursday (26 Nov), the T4 taxi bay will take on a new look, as a racing track.

At dusk, the circuit lights up with psychedelic neon lights, and you’ll even be able to race through a lighted tunnel.

You’ll be able to zoom down the 200m track, testing your Tokyo drift skills by manoeuvering past 12 bends.

Children above 9 years old can also join in the fun on a novice circuit specially designed for younger racers. But they will have to be above at least 1.3m tall.

If you’re thinking that such an adventure is going to cost you a bomb, that’s where you’re wrong. Prices begin at just $12 for kids and $15 for adults.

Even better, if you’re going to do some holiday shopping at Changi Airport, activity passes for the carnival can also be redeemed at a discounted price for every $30 spent.

Mandarin Oriental Promises $100 Meal Credits For SG Voucher Users, Doubling Their Worth

Mandarin Oriental Offers $100 Dining Credits To SingapoRediscovers Voucher Users

Many Singaporeans are eagerly awaiting the roll out of the SingapoRediscovers vouchers just in time for the December holidays.

If you’re already scouring for deals among the 147 hotels and 37 attractions where they can be used, perhaps you could consider the Mandarin Oriental Singapore.

While each Singaporean has $100 worth of vouchers to spend, if you spend them at the Mandarin Oriental they’ll reward you with $100 of dining credits.

Source

That effectively doubles the spending power of your vouchers!

$100 in dining credits to be used during stay

In a video posted on its Facebook page on Tuesday (24 Nov), Mandarin Oriental encouraged customers to book a stay with them using the SingapoRediscovers vouchers.

It’s especially worth it due to the $100 in dining credits they’re offering.

The credits can be used only during the period of stay, but we’re sure guests won’t have a problem using them up due to the lavish dining options available.

Range of dining options

Guests will be spoiled for choice on how to use their $100 dining credits, as they’ll be valid at places like elegant Italian restaurant Dolce Vita.

Source

Guests who prefer cuisine closer to home can use them at eclectic Cantonese restaurant Cherry Garden instead.

Source

If you’re just looking for a tipple with light bites, but with a breathtaking view of Marina Bay, check out Mo Bar.

Source

If you just want to lounge by the pool, you can have poolside snacks and drinks in private cabanas.

Source

While the dining credits can’t be used at for the Cherry Garden Dim Sum Brunch, Morton’s The Steakhouse, Teppan-Ya, and in-room dining, we think the array of other options should be enough to satisfy any gourmand.

Besides, the rooms already come with breakfast for 2 at Melt Cafe, so you won’t have to fork out a single cent on other food during your stay.

For the 3rd and 4th occupants of rooms that’re big enough for them, complimentary bed and breakfast is offered.

Late check-out from Jan to Jun

Of course, the Mandarin Oriental is also adored for its luxurious rooms with stunning views of Marina Bay or the sea, including the Singapore Flyer and Benjamin Sheares Bridge.

Source

As they know that their guests won’t bear to leave the comfort of their rooms, Mandarin Oriental is also offering late check-out.

How late is late? That’s 6pm — A whopping 6 hours after most normal hotel check-outs.

This applies only for those who’re staying from 2 Jan to 30 Jun 2021.

Nothing like a good bargain

There’s nothing like a good bargain, and doubling the value of your SingapoRediscovers vouchers sounds like one.

The promotion is applicable to bookings made with the vouchers from 1-21 Dec, and for stays from 1 Dec to 30 Jun 2021, so there’s plenty of flexibility in terms of when you want to stay.

If you want to double the value of your SingapoRediscovers vouchers, check out the hotel’s SingapoRediscovers promotion here.

Don’t forget to redeem your vouchers online with SingPass or at community centres or clubs from 1 Dec!

Photos Of Dakota Crescent Demolition Hit Us In The Feels, Iconic Flats Soon To Be No More

Dakota Crescent Demolition A Tangible Sign Of Historic Estate’s Impending Disappearance

Many Singaporeans are familiar with the Dakota Crescent estate, which was built in 1958 before the Housing Development Board (HDB) was established.

It appears that demolition works have started, a clear sign that the iconic flats will soon be no more.

Dakota Crescent overviewSource

Several netizens have shared photos and video clips of the demolition process.

Dakota Crescent demolished from top to bottom

In an image shared by a Reddit user, an excavator with a hydraulic demolition tool is seen tearing down Block 4 of Dakota Crescent.

A portion of the roof as well as several floors below visibly turned to rubble.

Dakota Crescent demolitionSource

A video by Facebook user Patrick on 10 Nov indicates that the demolition works may have started earlier, at a different block.

The sight hits us in the feels as the estate is steeped in Singapore’s rich history. According to Channel NewsAsia (CNA), it was built by the now defunct Singapore Improvement Trust when Singapore was still under British rule.

Soon, newer HDB flats will take its place, offering new residents a home closer to the city.

Estate won’t disappear entirely

Thankfully, the historical estate will not fully disappear. The Central cluster, which includes the iconic Dove playground will be conserved along with 6 blocks, reports TODAY.

Dove playgroundSource

This means that Singaporeans who grew up in the estate can come back for a trip down memory lane.

Younger Singaporeans who haven’t seen the buildings can also appreciate how far we have come in terms of public housing.

Block 16Source

A step forward

While it is saddening to see such a mature estate go, they will make way for higher rise blocks that can house more families for generations to come.

Fortunately, authorities have made an effort to conserve parts of the historical estate so an important piece of our past can remain.

Regardless, we’re sure that past residents will still miss their beloved homes. Hopefully with a portion of it still erect, they can continue to reminisce the good times they had there and remind younger Singaporeans of a memorable past.

But that can change at this dog pool which opened in Kovan in Sep, allowing owners and their pups to swim together in a safe environment.

New Lornie Nature Corridor Links Botanic Gardens To MacRitchie, Jio Your Buddies For A Hike

Lornie Nature Corridor & Park Connector Open As Part Of Coast-To-Coast Trail

Drivers who often travel along Lornie Road would be familiar with the narrow route and seemingly endless construction work.

While the nearby Highway has long been complete, it wasn’t until recently that the nature corridor was revealed to the public.

Part of the Coast-to-Coast (C2C) Trail, the Lornie Corridor and Park Connector (PC) offers hikers, joggers and cyclists an exciting new route.

Lornie Nature Corridor opens on 21 Nov

NParks announced the opening of the Lornie Nature Corridor in a Facebook post on Saturday (21 Nov).

Source

Taking up part of the old 7-lane Lornie Road which is now a dual 2-lane road, the 1.76km Lornie Nature Corridor comprises:

  • a Nature Way
  • Park Connector (PC)
  • Central Catchment Nature Reserve buffer

Source

The PCN itself links up with the existing C2C trail which takes hikers from Jurong all the way to Coney Island.

With this new path, they’ll have an easier route to explore Singapore’s natural scenery along the 36km trail.

Trail connects Botanic Gardens with MacRitchie

Bringing various parks along the C2C trail within reach of each other, the Lornie Trail links up Botanic Gardens with MacRitchie Reservoir Park, along a 10km stretch.

Source

A stop along the way includes Adam Road Food Centre, where hikers can refuel before continuing their journey.

So if you’re planning to go on a hike soon, take note of this route on the map so you can plot your rest points accordingly.

More greenery in an urban area

Mostly a quiet urban area, this new trail is part of NParks’ efforts to restore nature there.

MPs Tan Chuan-Jin and Desmond Lee were even on site to help plant some greenery.

Source

With over 100 species of trees and shrubs, NParks hopes that the landscape will mimic that of a rainforest in due time.

Jio your adventure buddies for a hike

Rather than taking a risk and exploring unknown places, routes like this enable us to appreciate Singapore’s greenery in a safe manner.

If you’re thinking of embarking on a new outdoor adventure with your buddies, suggest the Lornie Corridor to them.

And if they’re willing to go the extra mile, why not take the entire C2C trail too?

Man Argues With Boy Over Cycling On Path & Allegedly Hits Him, Police Investigating

argues pcn

Man Allegedly Hits Boy & Argues About Cycling On Path

When disagreements happen, violence is never the answer. As far as possible, we should always try to resolve issues without resorting to our fists.

A man allegedly confronted a 12-year-old boy over cycling on a certain path, which is part of the Park Connector Networks (PCN).

When the boy refuted that the Land Transport Authority (LTA) allows cycling on the path, the man said “don’t argue with me ah” and allegedly assaulted him, with a witness present to testify.

From pictures shown, the boy was left with a swollen right cheekbone, some bruising on his chest, and a mark on his left chin.

Source

Thankfully, the boy is otherwise okay.

Man argues with boy & says he can’t cycle on path

Apparently, since last week, the boy has been told by this ‘uncle’ that he can’t cycle on the path.

This is the path that the boy’s father says he was cycling on.

Source

It appears to be part of the Park Connector Network (PCN), where bicycles are allowed.

Regardless, the man appeared insistent. So the boy’s father told the boy to mention LTA regulations.

He did just that when he encountered the uncle again on Friday (20 Nov).

Man grabs phone during argument

In a video taken by the boy which you can view here, the man can be heard telling the boy to “turn back”, because he didn’t want to see him cycling in the area.

So the boy asks, “who say I can’t ride here?”, and the man replies, “I say”.

Source

“Government say”, the man continued.

When the boy tries to bring up the LTA argument – “did you read LTA-” – the man appears to get agitated and interrupts him, saying “you don’t argue with me ah”.

Then a loud impact can be heard.

The man then says “want to argue with me ah? Take picture?” and grabs the phone, with the clip ending shortly after.

The boy’s father has cropped out the man’s face in the video.

Boy suffers minor injuries

The man allegedly continued to punch the boy until a witness apparently stopped the incident.

The witness also called the boy’s father down, who in turn called the police.

Following a confrontation where the man allegedly challenged the boy’s father to a fight, he eventually apologised after the witness told the man that they saw him punching the boy.

The boy was then taken to the hospital.

He posted some pictures of the injuries the boy apparently sustained.

Source

There’s slight bruising on the boy’s chest.

Source

An abrasion is also seen on the boy’s cheek.

Source

The witness apparently said that the boy was “quite tough”, able to stand up after he “got beaten like that”.

Hopefully he’s okay, because assault can leave psychological scars, not just physical ones.

LTA allows cycling on PCNs

As with any story told on social media, there’s always more than one side of the story.

That said, the PCN is in fact fine for cyclists to ride on.

We don’t know what happened before and after the clip, although of course if an assault occurred, the perpetrator is at fault. Violence is never the way to settle any disagreements.

The police will be better able to judge what happened than the court of public opinion, and they’re currently investigating the incident.
