I recently discovered La Ristrettos. It's hidden on the 8th floor of Novena Medical Center. I think it's the only F&B establishment in the medical center itself. Boy, was I impressed. They do seem to roast their coffee on site. Anyway, this place is convenient only if you actually work around Novena...

We've finally settled for an infant care center. In addition to Rosy Hearts and Babies Inc (both described previously), we subsequently visited the new Learning Vision center at Hwa Chong Institution (i.e. along Bt Timah Road as well). We have now secured a spot at Learning Vision, but only for Janu...

Framing pictures/paintings in Singapore

I couldn't find any recent entries in the forum, so I was wondering if anyone could help. I'm looking for a decently-priced place where I frame pictures and posters. I went to Bras Basah Complex, which was a complete failure. There I could only find places that do quite traditional Chinese framing. ...

I recommend buying it online at the original Apple store website. (They do have a Singapore online store.)

Just use POSB. They don't have an initial deposit requirement and having an account with them allows you to use all POSB and DBS ATMs.

Daytime confinement nanny and confinement nanny agencies

Hi everyone! I’m not a Mom or a Mom-to-be, but a DAD-to-be. Hope I can still post in this part of the forum! ;) I’m looking for a confinement nanny for my wife. We do not need to follow the traditional confinement, though my wife would be happy to eat the confinement food. But we still think a confi...

I shall try my luck and bump up this two year old post. My wife and I are currently looking for an infant care center, ideally around Bukit Timah, for when our child turns 6 months old. So far we've checked out: Rosy Hearts at Lorong Pisang Batu and Babies Inc/Casa Montessori at Horse City. Here's o...
