Food Playground Singapore: Playing With Food Has Never Been This Good!

Do you enjoy talking about your work so much?

Well, I still don’t know how to answer this correctly either.

But living an expat life, and being at the bottom of the corporate food chain, I tend to mix work and life together, so much so that in many ways, it seems to me like it’s just one and the same. #dontfeelsorryformeyet

But hey, don’t get me wrong, even if this work stuff isn’t as sophisticated and as impressive as Mark Zuckerberg or doesn’t include me in the World’s Youngest Billionaires list (yet), in many ways, it still is enjoyable and something to look forward to. Like recently, we had this Team Building event at the Food Playground.

Imagine how we exchanged our hard hats and safety spectacles for knives and cooking pans. Imagine how we threw away our analytical skills in exchange for some all-out cooking battle skills.

HILARIOUS.

The Food Playground is not the typical cooking school, with boring classes and monochromatic kitchens. Here it was like being in a lighthearted kitchen showroom, where everyone gets to play a like a master chefs, learning Singapore’s food heritage and culture through food and play.

The team building part, which I think is the funniest, is the part when we get to eat our own food creations.

Imagine how “play” is being encouraged in preparing the food – like how kids do it? Sounds nastily funny, don’t ask why. Tip: please cut your nails before going to this event. We wouldn’t want any delicious dead nails, sexy nail polish, and aggressive ingrowns on our menu, yes?

Plus points to Food Playground, because you’ll really learn how to cook all these local food fares that aren’t that common in hawker centers or restaurants.

They’re true to their word – they found a way to build camaraderie as we created our own gourmet meals. A refreshing take on teambuilding events, yes. #MarkZuckerbergshouldtrythis
