Food Anatomy in the Red Dot Museum
If you think that the science in food designs (and much more in between) is something that is only achievable if you have celebrity chefs and Michelin stars scattered around the food place, I dare you to think again. We all know that in the worldwide array of food today, it is no longer just about the taste anymore. More often than not, especially in this era of experiential euphoria, it’s about food presentations, ambiance, and how instagrammable, snapchattable, or whichever story-worthy place it should be at (other than inside our bellies). It’s about the food place and food taste. This is where the Food Anatomy comes into play.

I like the underlying principle they have when they say that delicious is not enough and that every dish should look beautiful. Their unconventional approach to culinary plating, which looks like a graphic design project, is a surprise to the eyes and to the taste buds. It matches perfectly with their first standalone outlet outside the Timbre+, which is inside the Red Dot Design Museum – it is so fitting given that this THE house of concept designs.

As soon as you finish your Red Dot Design Museum experiential stint, you can walk-in and stay a bit longer at the Food Anatomy. You’ll be excited to know that the venue alone invites you to have your business meetings, friend catch ups, dates, or even happy hour sessions with your cool museum buddies here. This place not just serves coffee, tea, rice meals, sandwiches, pasta, and dessert, they also serve an overload of chill vibe that makes you feel at ease just hanging around in a museum spot, be it daytime or night. What a way to kill off stress after a long hard day.

"Good food, designed for a good time." Craft beer for 6 SGD, anyone? Or perhaps some lunch sets at 7.50 SGD – with two savories, dessert, coffee or tea? How about some super supper for 50% off all food? Good deal, aimed for YOUR good time indeed. Aside from the fact that this place is guaranteed for that visual-gastronomic experience that not every museum can offer, I am quite ecstatic to share that they share the best when it comes to coffee – my favorite - Chye Seng Huat Hardware - and roastery Papa Palheta. Espresso based coffee, cold brew, to filtered coffee, it’s all surefire! So it’s time to invite you to swing by this place, meet you at the café place? P.S. Check out the shopping area just beside the cafe as well.

Address: Red Dot Design Museum, 11 Marina Boulevard, Singapore 018940

Red Dot Design Museum along Marina Bay Promenade: A MUST Re-Visit Museum

Red Dot Design Museum along Marina Bay Promenade

For those of you who are on a quest to (re)discover Singapore through good doses of art and culture, museums are the places for-you-for-sure. For a city so young and modern, you’ll be surprised to know about the profusion of museums strategically scattered around this red dot island. From National Museums, Heritage Museums, and other public and private museums, every visit will be a chance to get to know art and culture from different museum scenes (The ration between malls versus museums in Singapore seem to be getting closer!).

The biggies: National Gallery Singapore, Art Science Museum, Singapore Art Museum, Asian Civilizations Museum, or the National Museum of Singapore are always there --- parading itself with its historical and cultural flairs that anyone would want to cross it out as part of their inner-culture-vulture bucket lists. Nevertheless, can I interest you in this often overlooked and underrated museum that is really worth a revisit?


Yes, this newly re-opened Red Dot Design Museum along the iconic Marina Bay Promenade, which is just a stone’s throw away from the Marina Bay Sands and Gardens by the Bay. Back in the day when I first landed in Singapore, one of the very first museums that I visited and remembered during my entire trip was this first-ever contemporary design museum in Asia. Who could forget this bold red-painted landmark along Maxwell Road, Tanjong Pagar that turns heads even from afar?

Flash forward to my first business trip stint, then as a foreign worker here in Singapore, I found myself re-visiting this museum, because of its overall impression and inspiration it gives. The World of Design is indeed fascinating, and you get to travel with your imagination upon seeing the displays here. It really helps you weave an interesting narrative of the potential of contemporary design. Now, with a full glass facade building and strong structural architectural patterns, every inner architect, designer, and visionary in you will just appreciate the place at the very onset of your visit. Plus, it is the only night museum in Singapore that is still open up until 2:00 in the morning! Museum night owls, care to visit?

With over 300 Red Dot award-winning futuristic design concepts from the Red Dot Award for Design Concept, unlike other museums, the ambiance and friendliness of this place give you that kind of welcome curiosity that’ll ignite your interest in design. Concepts, prototypes, and new products are spectacularly mapped out around the two-floor split type area, visitors are encouraged to “play” around with the exhibits, and get a glimpse of what our future might bring – be it from different manufacturers, in-house designers, or award winners.


Much like the other museums around Singapore, the Red Dot Design Museum encourages learning through an excellent display of visuals – in this case, design and conceptualization. What sets this museum apart from the rest though, is the fact that every year, there are about 10,000+ designers and 50+ countries who participate to develop design concepts that’ll, later on, be used by the awarding body to be part of the Red Dot Design Museum. Guaranteed best of the best of the of the best of the of the best of the of the best of the (multiplied by 10,000+) very best, yes?

Would you fancy to wear a Sharkman Wearable Furniture? An Easy Push Trolley Case? Or a Sightless Dog Antenna? Or the Same Strain Ceramic? How about some an electrically power-assisted wheelchair that plays music? My personal favorite – the Pocket Charger utilizing Smart Pulse charging, which is fast due to low current input – and it’s an entry from SINGAPORE! Take note though, this is just for this year, so better visit before the displays change.

A colossal shout-out to the best museum squad I’ve met, for sharing stories and smiles about this museum, and for being instrumental in the success and sustainability of this red dot gallery.

Address: 11 Marina Boulevard, Singapore 018940
Opening Hours: Daily 11:00 A.M. – 2:00 A.M.

12.12 Sale: When Cyber Monday Sales Start...
My inbox earlier this week was flooded with notes about Black Friday, what’s up with that? It’s all about how it ends tonight, or about preview specials, and those extra 20% offs and promo codes when you shop till you drop. So yes, we are already in the festive SALE season, and it’s about time to get ready for a sneak peek of all those Black Fridays and Cyber Mondays specials. But what the heck is this all about? It’s all about the shopping season and if you are like me, who prefers to do the silly last minute gift shopping, and would rather prefer to bank on “experience” as their best gifts, then it’s about time to change your ways and join in the online bargain bandwagon, maybe even purchase like crazy?

If you have heard of it, it’s really worth knowing about this so-called Black Friday, which is an informal name for the day following Thanksgiving Day, which has been regarded as the beginning of the country's Christmas shopping season. In other words, it’s all about deals, sales, and relentless consumption of all things discounted and nice-haves-to-must-haves. It gets celebrated annually, and quite popular in countries like the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Mexico, Romania, India, France, Germany, and even in Asia. Recently, they even came up with Cyber Monday, Cyber Week, and all those super controversial retail sales wins that causes internet chaos the and server issues, once it goes up and running. Good thing though is that every year, it keeps getting better!

bowdywanders.com Singapore Travel Blog Philippines Photo :: Singapore :: 12.12 Sale: When Cyber Monday Sales Start, Will You Be Ready To Click For Travel?

This year, something to look forward to is the 12.12 Sale here in Singapore. Singaporeans and Asians, in general, are so smart when it comes to online shopping, because they kind of learned from the advent of Groupons, and QOO10s era; now, they really known their purchases well, especially when it comes to occasions like Singles’ Day, or Black Friday, or even Cyber Monday. They know what to look for, where to look, and which one to catch fast. I am particularly interested to get some good wins from the Best Cyber Monday Deals, since I want to ramp up my bucket list of travel experiences for next year (and yes, maybe for some last minute Christmas gifts?). Will you join me or recommend some things worth trying out? Any hacks or tips? I am interested to go and purchase something on that really nice splendid staycation deal! :-)


Finland On Foot: This Is What You Will See When You Do A Self Guided Winter Walking Expedition Around Helsinki

A Self Guided Winter Walking Expedition Around Helsinki 
What in the heavens were we thinking? We could have caught some serious… colds. Walking endlessly around the Nordic wintered out city seems to be funny idea for many, but not for these bunch of Asians. To battle our jetlagged brains, we opted for the unobvious choice – not coffee, not sleep, not rest, but wandering around. This design district known as Helsinki seems to be one of the best Nordic cities to explore on foot, whatever the season or reason. The Helsinki map alone will easily interesting story that you deserve to discover it by just walking around, instead of relying too much on hop on hop off bus tours, or any tours for that matter! If you ask me - What's the best way to make the most of Helsinki on foot? I’ll tell you walk everywhere, because the city’s main attractions are actually really close to each other!

bowdywanders.com Singapore Travel Blog Philippines Photo :: Finland :: Finland On Foot: This Is What You Will See When You Do A Self Guided Winter Wonderland Walking Expedition Around Helsinki

It’s very easy to get to know #MyHelsinki on foot. Not only do they have free walking tours, self-guided walking tours, and different walking routes around town, the city itself has a lot of information for tourists and travelers to ensure utmost enjoyment of the city. What I really like about this city is that their Helsinki Tourist Information offers helper tourist guides, region tourist information, and brochures / maps to people who are interested to do a DIY should you decide to get around or do a stopover in Helsinki. As soon as my troop and I left our backpacker bags, and recharged our camera batteries, we swiftly stole the nearest McDonald’s hot coffee available and out-and-about we went – no sleep no regrets for us, as the sightseeing, trips, and guidance around Helsinki are really easy to enjoy and experience.

bowdywanders.com Singapore Travel Blog Philippines Photo :: Finland :: Finland On Foot: This Is What You Will See When You Do A Self Guided Winter Wonderland Walking Expedition Around Helsinki

I don’t know where to start, but to be honest, there are so many reasons to enjoy Helsinki on foot, and even on a winter season. There’s something about the snow and everlasting white noise seen on the walls and all that makes the world-renowned Finnish modern design heritage nicer. The main sights that are in walkable are the Senate Square, Helsinki Cathedral, Tori Quarters, Market Square, Old market Hall, and the Esplanade Park. Likewise, seeing that the sea is nearby – that the city center is just in close proximity to the sea shoreline, is just white-wow. This Nordic archipelago is full of Maritime attractions to enjoy too.

It took us two to three full days to leisurely (read: slowly) walk around and see this compact yet functional Finnish city. To be fair, it took as longer than what we expected, because we relishing around certain place longer than intended; also, there are no great traffic jams, the public transport system like tourist trams (or even cruise ships) is amazing, cycling is easy --- but we decided not to take any of those – instead, we relied heavily on our leg muscles to burn fats from all the never-ending foot feasts we did (read: delicious local food culture, yes). Although the people here are NOT as loquacious and as sociable to Asian travelers as in other cities I have visited, I observed that the locals are genuinely happy to help travelers make the most of our visit. So yes, what’s your #MyHelsinki story?
