My experience at TrappedSG & Home Of Joy Steamboat Restaurant


I was recently invited by Trapped SG to try out one of their escape rooms! Never in my life I have experienced a real escape room game (I have perviously tried the outdoor version where I played with more than 100 participants but I always wanted to try the indoors version) so this was counted as my first time! I decided to bring along Bella, Cheryl and Joyner with me as we haven't met up for more than a year! Thought it would be a fun experience to work together as a team and solve the puzzle/mystery together. 


This is the outlet located at SCAPE, Orchard Road just beside Cathay Cineleisure Ocrchard. The place is quite prominent and easy to find because it's not exactly inside the SCAPE.


Q: What is the escape room all about? 

In a nutshell, you will be trapped in a room with a limited time of only 1 hour. Within the hour, you are suppose to solve the puzzle by looking and solving the clues in order advance to the next round, for instance, the key to the next room. Electronic devices (that explains the lack of photos in this post, means you have to come down and experience it yourself!) are strictly not allowed during the gameplay and you will only be given a wireless phone with a hotline to call if you need assistance or help but you are only entitled to call a maximum of 3 times. Not to worry for your valuables because you will be given a locker and a key to store your barang barang.

Q: How I felt after playing? 

My friends and I got the opportunity to try out the "World War 3" room which was a zombies theme. I heard that there was another room which is much more scarier and it is the "Friday the 13th" room. So for more adventurous people, you might want to check that out because that room is one of the latest addition to the one at SCAPE's outlet. Guess what? We managed to make it out within an hour, If I could recall we came out at 54 mins! Of course with the help of maximising the 3 helpline calls and we kinda broke the rules by calling another two times for help. I shall not spill any beans about how we solved the puzzles but I must say that IT IS NOT EASY and it really required you to think out of the box! You will need to brainstorm as a team in order to advance to the next round. It was really fun as my good friend, Joyner was really a joker, he likes to make things funny even in the most serious situation. It was really fun and many laughter (I think the staff heard our laughter haha)! I do wish to come back and try again!!!

Here is the pricing if you are interested to find out! Good news because they have student promo if you are below 21 years old. I would say that Escape Room is a great activity for team bonding!

We took a cab to Kembagan to Home Of Joy Steamboat Restaurant


We picked the Chicken and Tom Yum Soup Base!



Pork


Chicken Slices



Prawn


Location was quite convenient for us despite we took a cab. Anyways, it's only a 5-10 mins walking distance from Kembangan MRT Station. Just use google maps to find the place! Generally, the food was decent, my favourite was the pork belly. Variety was quite limited; pretty much what you see at a regular steamboat restaurant. However, I would like to compliment their cleanliness and how fresh the food were. Food items were wrapped with plastic wraps and it was very hygienic! Just that I wished they provided rice as well, instead of just maggie noodles! Overall, it was a satisfying meal especially if you are with your friends! I don't mind coming back again :)

Orh Nee,Yam Cake from Buttertrade

Ever since when I was little boy, whenever I attend a wedding dinner, the food item that I always anticipate the most has got to be the orh nee dessert. I mean who doesn't loves yam! So creamy yet sweet! Sometimes I wish I can find them at dessert stalls but you can rarely find them nowadays. Recently, I was greeted with an orh nee cake right at my door step thanks to Buttertrade

The cake is from Bloomsbury Bakers delivered by Buttertrade.

My experience at Gills N Shells (Lavender)

I was invited for a food tasting session at Gills N Shells not long ago to try out their new dishes. Gills N Shells is a restaurant/drinking place that is inspired by the ocean. The restaurant specialises in seafood, thus they offer a vary of seafood dishes. They are dedicated to serve quality food with the best quality. Gills N Shells is easily accessible as they are located just behind Hotel Boss facing the river. The nearest train station is at Lavender MRT Station, thus it will only take a 5 minutes walk to get to this restaurant.

Gills N Shells recently launched their seafood platter served in a dim sum basket. As mentioned, there is a variety of seafood choices you can select from. However, there is a minimum order of three seafood choices. If you are an adventurous person or you can eat a lot, you may wish to order the All-in-A Basket Special. It comes along with all the seafood listed in the menu.

My internship in Japan (Niigata)

If you haven't read my previous blogposts about my overseas industrial attachment at Japan you can click on the links below: http://www.uncletehpeng.com/2014/09/exploring-niigata-japan-kite-museum.html http://www.uncletehpeng.com/2014/08/my-trip-to-japan-niigata-day-1.html''

Working in Japan is one of my greatest experience so far! The people there are so nice to communicate too and they are not only patient but very kind too. Despite the communication barrier, we were still able to translate our body language to talk to each other. The only funny thing is when we have to use Google Translate to talk to each other. Above is a picture of a huge tentage that my colleague and I built. Do note that everything including the tent sheets are made from scratch! 

I was attached to a logistics company during my internship period! The company has many years of experience in the industry thus I learnt plenty of things about administration & practical work. Japanese are very passion…
