Molecular Gastronomy Food Science Event

Gastronomic Discoveries

The Seletar Mall engaged an event company to create a brilliant molecular gastronomy food science event at their level one Atrium. It started from late July till National Day holiday. Parents from all over Singapore brought their children to attend this fun event.

Participants spend about S$ 30 each to attend the event. And get to learn and taste science in a fun way for free!

Due to the popularity of this innovative edutaining event, the response was overwhelming. Participants had to wait for 2-3 hours during peak hours on weekend.

To fill up the time while waiting in the queue, some smart participants equipped themselves with books and power banks for their mobile games. Most patiently waited for 2 hours to get into the Gastronomic Discoveries event hall. Amazing to see some kids have the good discipline to behave well in the long queue.

It is easy to understand why people willingly waited as this is so much more experiential, engaging and educational than queueing hours for famous Char Kway Teow! :D We could see from their expression participants greatly anticipate to join the event.

 Queuing Patiently for this Free event

The whole event journey is about half an hour but it is worth every minute of it! We learn from the mad-scientists the knowledge behind the interesting dishes we tasted and got absorbed in the fun fascinating science lab setting!

Seletar Sheng Mian, Mee Hoon Kuay (Soup/Dry)
I love the chewy noodles and sweet broth. Customers need to queue for about 10 minutes or more during weekday off peak time. Most of the older folks prefer the soup version. The teenagers usually chose the dry Bee Hoon Kway version.

Located at the famous Toa Payoh Lorong 8 Hawker center where the recent viral video of an elderly uncle being bullied by a young couple. Do expect a long queue during peak hours.

Hip Singles

I was conducting a singles networking party at a hip cafe when the barista whispered to me that he is impressed that my clients are so good-looking and he is surprised that they are single!

I agree that most of them are very eligible and they are single because their social circle had shrunk since they graduated from school. Good thing is that they realized it and made the effort to enlarge their social circle by attending Clique2click social events.

Let's hope these singles find someone special this season. :)

Happy New Year!
