Online Delivery with FoodPanda Singapore

True story: My brother and I are very lazy people and we’re always ordering food delivery when we’re home alone.. When it comes to convenience, I’ll gladly pay since we have not much things to eat near out place. And when you think of delivery, you’ll usually think of things like Mcdonalds, KFC, etc… but we wanted more varieties!

The other day we were craving for Yoshinoya but they do not have their own in-house delivery website.. That’s when we found out about FoodPanda. FoodPanda is an online food delivery portal which delivers food from various local restaurants, right to your doorstep! They are currently operating in 30 countries worldwide.

Ordering from FoodPanda is pretty fuss free. Just key in your postal code to search for restaurants which deliver to your location, order your food, pay and enjoy your food when it gets delivered to your doorsteps!

FoodPanda offers a wide variety of cuisine. Want Indian food? Japanese food? They’ve got it covered!

So after keying in my postal code, I get to choose from 40 over restaurants.
What I like about FoodPanda is that if I don’t know what to eat, I can always go onto FoodPanda and slowly choose from the many many varieties. No more eating the same food over and over again! Woohoo!

I saw that they even have delivery for Burger King (my favourite fast food restaurant, but only for those in the West whyyy) and Nandos for delivery now!!  Hope that more restaurants will be added!

They also have a mobile app for iOS/Android users. I already have it downloaded on my phone and I foresee myself using it a lot! :)

Review: SingTel WiFi

I’m sure mobile data has become one of the necessities in most of our lives. I think I’ll be bored to death without being connected to Whatsapp, Facebook, Instagram or Twitter, especially if I have to wait for a long time for someone (*stares at my boyf*).

If you’re someone who’s frequently looking out for WiFi hotspots in shopping malls, you might have notice that ‘SingTel WiFi’ has appeared as one of the network selections in certain malls and even MRT stations.

If you’ve always been wondering what that is and how you can access it… Please read on!

SingTel WiFi

Remember the SingTel Combo Plan that I’ve introduced awhile back? This range of mobile plans are fully integrated with a new premium high-speed WiFi network that it is rolling out at crowded locations and underground MRT stations. With this plan, you can now tap on SingTel’s high-speed WiFi on the go without compromising on your mobile data bandwidth. The best part – customers will enjoy unlimited WiFi usage until 31 July 2015! Woohoo!

It has been about 2 weeks since I’ve changed over to this new plan and I’m amazed by the number of WiFi hotspots SingTel has! I don’t know if I’m just very lucky or what but almost all the malls I went and the usual route I take on the MRT have got it!! But actually it’s nothing to be surprised about because by March 2015, approximately 1,000 hotspots at more than 100 locations across the island will have been deployed. These numbers are expected to double by March 2016.

And the speed is really wonderful! Unlike free public WiFi networks, SingTel’s WiFi network is fully managed to ensure high quality performance. It can provide connectivity that is five times faster than typical free public WiFi services. (Average typical speeds of SingTel WiFi range from 4 to 10Mbps.)

This is what my Facebook page shows when I’m using 3G on the train.. It’s really annoying when I’m trying to see new blogshop launches and the pictures refuse to show up…

But once I’m connected to the SingTel WiFi (happened to pass by the stop which has the hotspot), the pictures load super quickly! And using this WiFi service is so convenient because it auto connects and there is no password required! Just switch on my WiFi and it’ll automatically tap onto the WiFi whenever it’s available.

So far I’ve tried using the WiFi service to stream shows while waiting for my friends and connectivity is so fast I’ve no complaints. Also, connecting to WiFi instead of using 3G also means that my battery life can last longer! This also helps alot in ensuring that I keep to within my mobile data limit so I don’t pay extra!

1st post of 2015

It’s kind of sad that one entire month has already passed and I’m only at my first post of 2015… :( :( Anyway, just a quick update before I disapper again (hopefully not for long!!)

Visited a Korean restaurant near Amoy Street with some colleagues after work just last week.

 I think side dishes are the highlight of Korean cuisine.. But I only like 2 out of xx dishes.

 Army Stew. The soup’s really nice and according to my colleague, this is filled with all the sinful meat (hotdog, bacon, etc) all in 1 pot.

Love the seafood pancake! Crispy on the outside and soft on the inside! The serving was really huge as well.

Topokki. I skipped this dish cos I’m not a fan of the sauce. But according to my colleagues it’s really well-prepared.

 Some beef glass noodles. Love it!

I was really looking forward to the BBQ meat. I love meat, I can’t do without meat.

Love the fluffy egg that’s cooked at the sides while the meat is cooking as well. We ordered 3 different kinds of meat to share.

 50% Soju, 50% beer.
Cheers to a good working year ahead.

After dinner, we walked down to Chinatown to get our dessert fix.

 After that, we headed down to Chinatown for our dessert fix.

 Ordered a Mango & Green Tea shaved ice to share.

 Here’s a tip: Eat the Green Tea first before eating the Mango because everything tastes blend after the sweet Mango.

Okay end of the food porn… Typing this at 12am and I’m really hungry. :/

So 1 month just flew by like that… So many things to catch up on, but new things keep piling on. :( I realised one bad habit of mine is that I tend to worry alot. And it’s really bad because the things I worry about are actually not fully within my control. I need to relax and tell myself that whatever will be will be, and worrying doesn’t change anything! *Breathe x5*

Feb is going to be another busy month.. I’ll be flying to Thailand (business + leisure) in 2 weeks time and after that it’s CNY already!! And I still haven’t shopped for my CNY clothes and I’m still not done with my spring cleaning and I think my parents wouldn’t be too happy with that. *panic mood*

Speaking of spring cleaning, I’ve already thrown away bags and bags of stuff, but my room still looks like it’s in the same state as before (which is super crowded), how is that even possible???

Enjoy Today.

Because today is the oldest you’ve ever been and the youngest you’ll ever be again.

How many of us really fully enjoy every present moment in our life? One bad habit of mine (which I’ve improved from a lot) is that when I see something nice, the first thing I’ll do is to scramble for my camera/phone to capture a shot of it. Yes photos help us to capture memories, but it’s different looking at something through a screen than fully being immersed in it. I remember trying to capture fireworks on my phone and all I did was to be so engrossed in getting a good shot that after the whole thing was over, it just felt that I didn’t enjoy the whole process than I would if I just kept my phone away. And sometimes certain moments in our lives are like fireworks – they come and go so quickly that before you have time to blink, it’s gone. Who knows when would be the next time you experience something like this again.

Here’s a reminder to all of us to enjoy every moment today. If there’s something you want to do or say, don’t leave it till tomorrow. Treat every moment like it’s the last because tomorrow things might change without any signs of warning. And if that day really comes, at least you’ll know that you’ve done your best… And there’ll be no regrets.
