Where to Eat in Singapore: Maxwell Food Center

One of the most popular hawkers center in Singapore is the Maxwell Food Center. 

We went here to eat the famous chicken rice.  To taste the most famous Hainnanese Chicken in Singapore - at Tian Tian. But for some reason, it was closed.

Pero sabi nga ni Drew sa Biyahe ni Drew Singapore episode, "kung saan mahaba ang pila, dun masarap kumain". Kaya heto, dito kami bumili.

Ang laki ng mga manok...

Workers were so busy.


We ordered half chicken ($11), large vegetable with oyster sauce ($5) and rice for the 5 of us.

The chicken was so yummy, soft and tender. Yung rice, lasang luya. Parang rice sa Paotsin pero mas masarap.

Sugarcane juice and soya were also famous in hawkers center.

When travelling, eat what the locals eat, eat where the locals eat. When in Singapore, eat at Maxwell Food Center.

How to get there:

Maxwell Road Food Centre is in Chinatown. Ride the Singapore MRT and disembark at Chinatown MRT Station (NE4) - take Exit A to Pagoda Street, walk down the lane until you hit South Bridge Road. Cross the street and walk south down South Bridge Road until you reach Maxwell Food Centre.

Supertrees at Gardens by the Bay, Singapore

If you love plants and flowers, this new attraction in Singapore is for you. 

Gardens by the Bay is located at Central Singapore. If you are coming from Merlion Park, it is located at the back of Marina Bay Sands. The park consists of three waterfront gardens: Bay South Garden, Bay East Garden and Bay Central Garden. We entered at the Bay South Garden.
The most iconic attraction here are the Supertrees.

Standing between 25 metres (82 ft) and 50 metres (160 ft), these Supertrees are vertical gardens that perform a multitude of functions, which include planting, shading and working as environmental engines for the gardens. 
See the skyway bridge? You can climb it for $5 (Adult) and ($3 (Child) to take a closer look.

There is also a restaurant atop the 50-metre (160 ft) Supertree. You have to pay $18 to get in. At night, the Supertrees come alive with a light and music show called the OCBC Garden Rhapsody.

Other attractions inside the Gardens are:
