Go mad over hearty ramyun at Han Bun Sik

We’ve all been there – it’s 2 A.M. and our stomach’s grumbling at the sight of a glorious spread of mouth-watering Korean comfort food through our iPad screens.

Similarly, Han Bun Sik can make you salivate just the same with their authentic Korean Ramyun with a range of traditional flavours, emphasizing the harmony of the five tastes (spicy, bitter, sweet, sour and salty). Here, you can daydream (read: hallucinate) about sharing the warm meal with your oppa of choice. (Note: Oppa’s not included in set meals).

At Jens Craft, you can acquire skills for knitting in just under three minutes (talk about efficiency)! Scarves, hats, gloves or crop tops – craft your one-of-a-kind piece with no limitations on your creativity!

Print memories at Pica Pica

We live in a world where capturing moments has never been easier. With smartphones, we can reminisce over the good ol’ times whenever and wherever we want. Despite so, owning a physical copy of our favourite memories as a keepsake hits different.

Call it sentimental but you’ll be able to carry a copy of your memory in your wallet, on your desk or by your bed to remind you of the good times! The first leading photo printing kiosk – Pica Pica, allows you to do just that. Customise your snapshots by using their templates and BFF’s stickers to spice up an otherwise plain photo!
