By The Way - What to do for National Day

One week more to National Day! Have you put up your flag and readied your red and white outfits? Have your planned your rose water and coconut malk layered agar-agar recipe? We patriotic aunties at SimplyFab are just crazed with excitement and nationalistic fervor! I will be offline this weekend as I am checking in at a hotel to soak in the full dress parade this evening….Yes, I have my little plastic flag at the ready in my quivering hands!

Even if you have not booked your room with a view, there are countless things we can do to mark the delights of independence and self-determination. We the citizens of Singapore can indeed do our bit…. Let SimplyFab count the ways.

Well,  you can go for a spa in celebration…at least that’s what Fairmont Hotel says. For the month of August, they are offering a yummy treat at Willow Stream Spa (level 6). For just $159+, the Spa Burst Experience gives you 90 mins of fun filled pampering - 45mins Customised Deep Cleansing Mini Facial (including skin analysis, gentle exfoliation and masque), 30mins Express Pedicure (Me! Me!) and a 15-min Foot Massage which will surely send me to sleep. Nice!

Tel: 6431 5600, or email:

We can also surround ourselves with celeb aura…..Master Chef Kunio Tokuoka – he of four Michelin stars – will return to Singapore from 9-14 August to cook at his kaiseki restaurant Kunio at RWS. And since he’s offering a special menu at only $120 (compared to $300 being his usual, baseline menu) I will suggest you Fab Foodies just hot foot there without delay for this fantastic opportunity….and I’m not even paid to say that! The menu also comes with a complimentary glass of Kitcho Teioh sake.

Tel: 6686 3633 and mention the special offer.

And finally for all your MediaCorp fans, pack your Bonia bags and head to Carousel, Royal Plaza on Scotts and eat in honour of local cuisines! From 11 August to 9 September 2010, Nelson Li, guest chef and Peranakan culture adviser from The Little Nyonya series will be whipping up some fiery hot peranakan cuisine. Chef Li picked up his skills from grandma and mom and will be doling up yummies like Ayam Buah Keluak and Curry Assam Fish. Available during dinner at $63.00++ on weekdays (Sun to Thu) and $70.00++ on weekends (Fri, Sat and PH). Don't forget to heave mom-in-law along....Auntie will definitely like!

Tel: 6589 7799 or for details
