Hi Readers! Today post is for the Taiwanese foods lover! Yup here it is! A week back, group of friends and I were invited to the Taipei Station Singapore café for a food tasting located at bugis +. The Singapore Taipei Station café has a perspective view of classical Taiwan train station and inside the café, it sell those common Taiwanese food such as Oyster Rice Vermicelli, Braised Pork with Rice, Original Crispy Chicken, Crispy Taiwan Tempura and etc…


Likewise, public are allow to buy in either ‘set’ or ‘a la carte’ meal or even just side dish itself. The foods at Taipei Station are well-seasoned and it taste delicious especially their side dishes. Hence, the price of the food at Taipei Station is affordable and reasonable.

Team of Commercial Pilots Wins The RED BULL FLUGTAG in Singapore


Press Release:
(Singapore, 28 October 2012) –Red Bull Flugtag teams spent weeks toiling over their man-made aircrafts in an attempt to put Singapore on the world map for creativity and today, Siloso Beach Sentosa saw some of the island’s wackiest human-powered flying crafts take off a 6 meter ramp into the lagoon.

Nearly a quarter of the teams were inspired by local flair including Team Flurry Express and their MRT cabin, Team ERP with their flying ERP gantry. Local delights such as Chilli Crabs, Durians, Kueh Lapis and Char Siew Pows also took the skies, albeit briefly, before making a huge splash in the water below.

The day’s prize winners were announced by Red Bull Flugtag hosts, 98.7 FM’s Justin Ang and Vernon A. a.k.a The Muttons and each winning team was presented with their prizes atop the ramp.
