My Singapore Food Street at SM Megamall

 “Laksa”. Every Singaporean restaurant has its own version and level of hotness, but the one that is being served here at My Singapore Food Street taste just right. 

I had my first taste of Singaporean food when my wife and I spent a dinner date at Singapore Republic in BGC last year. It made a mark to me because the food is quite different and unique. But the resto offers other Asian dishes which I also tried, so the chance of getting some of the authentic Singaporean food was not fully satisfied. 

My Singaporean Food Street in SM Megamall serves the very food culture of Singapore, so everything they serve are authentic, including most of the ingredients which the management import it from Singapore, like the coffee beans, chili pepper and some other stuff you can only find in Singapore. 

Just over a week ago, I had the rare chance to experience My Singapore Food Street for the very first time. Luckily, I came in a bit early, actually I was the first one to arrive and I had the opportunity to be introduced to Ms. Vivien Tan, My Singapore Food Street’s General Manager. 

Ms. Tan, a notable celebrity chef in Singapore and who happens to host her own TV show, is married to a Filipino who happens to love Singapore food. After migrating with her husband in the Philippines, she brought her passion for Singaporean cuisine and decided to put up the My Singapore Food Street, with the help of business partner Mr. Jean Henri Lhuillier of the PJ Lhuillier Group of Companies. 

The My Singapore Food Street dishes are much like the food that are being offered in the streets of Singapore. It offers the cultural diversity of the country which according to Ms. Tan, a melting pot of different Asian Culture. As a trevia, Singapore is one of the smallest country in the world which use to be part of Malaysia before. The national anthem is in Bahasa-Malaysia, a big percentage of its residents are Indians, Chinese, Malaysians and some Filipinos. Mandarin is being taught in all schools but the primary language is English

Having a very diverse food culture, Singaporean foods blend perfectly in the food preference of every pinoys.  After all guests has arrived, Chef Emman invited us to have a Singaporean kitchen experience, where we took our turns to cook the food in their mini-wok station.

After that very fun cooking experience, the management serve some of the resto’s most sought-after dishes. Their signature dishes are Hainanese Chicken Rice, Nasi Goreng, Black Pepper Rice, Singapore Fried Rice, Stir-fried Noodles, Dishes such as Char Kway Teow and Mee Goreng and of course the Laksa, Singaporean version of Pa-thai, which is equally spicy and delicious. The Roti Pratha is best served with its signature Kopi Tarik

The My Singapore Food Street is certainly becoming the talk-of-the-town among Asian foodies around the metro. Serving authentic Singaporean dishes but with some Filipino tweaks, just enough to accustom your taste preference. It is located at 2nd floor bridgeway, SM Megamall.

INFINIX PURE: One of the many latests of Cherry Mobile (secretly) launched at the "Captain's Ball"

2014 was a good year for Cherry Mobile starting from their release of its quad-core line ups to the Alpha series Windows Phone that was launched just this September. Now, as the year ends, the all Filipino mobile tech giant acknowledges that it has been a good year despite the tough competition in the cellular and smart phone race. And as a show of gratitude to its loyal dealers all over the country and the support of the on line media, Cherry Mobile celebrated its “thanks” with a grand appreciation party at the La Pavilion in Metrobank Plaza, Pasay City. 

Themed as “The Captain’s Ball”, Cherry Mobile honored its long time vendors since the time it took the risk to venture out and took its maiden voyage five years ago. Celebration was also graced by some of its loyal celebrity endorsers like Ms. Ann Curtis and Kim Chiu who shared their talents by rendering a few song numbers to entertain the audience. Ms. Luning-ning, a thriving sexy icon talent also made a remarkable show by performing a Pole Dance number. 

Soon after, Cherry Mobile extended its generosity to the dealers by raffling off cash prizes worth P300,000. Eight lucky vendors won P25,000 each, two won P50,000 each and the first prize bagged a trip for two to Hong-kong. Then, Mr. Meynard Ngu, the CEO of Cherry Mobile awarded the top-ten dealers and each one was given a captain’s hat to symbolically acknowledges their exceptional leadership in bringing Cherry Mobile product to their clientele. 


One of the many latest of Cherry mobile that will soon to be released in the Market (hopefully )before the year ends is the INFINIX PURE.

With all the new applications that have been coming out lately, processing these apps would require a much powerful engine. While many are still in their dual and quad-core capacities, Cherry Mobile is not slowing down to be left out in the competition by bringing an “octo-core” engine into the race. Infinix Pure is the latest of its kind. In fact this slick smart phone is not on the shelves yet and the SRP is yet to be determined. 

Luckily, we were one of the people who were able to get the first taste of experience on how INFINIX PURE can out-stand other in the “octo-core’ battle and I’m pretty excited to with the feature this smart phone has to offer. For now, I will just enumerate its basic highlights.

INFINIX PURE Specifications:

Processor – MEDIATEK
OS – Android 4.4 kitkat
Rear Cam – 8MP, Front Cam – 2MP
Processor speed and Capacity – 1.4 GHz OCTO-CORE
Wifi – wifi b/g/n, BT 4.0
LCD Display size- 5” HD IPS
YAMAHA High Fidelity Speakers

As soon as this phone will be out in the market, I pretty much sure that many would be excited to grab-hold of it. A great gift to yourself or to your loved ones this coming Christmas Season.
