The American diner seats about 60 people and it doesn’t take reservations. Beating the crowds and scoring a table there is enough to make any diehard foodie’s day. But if you have to wait a bit, the food and shakes are worth it. Those with a sweet tooth will be pleased to know that you can buy the cakes, pies, cookies, and scones to go. From November 15 to 30 December, the restaurant will be launching festive pies like Maple Bourbon Pecan Pie and Pumpkin Butterscotch Pie. Meanwhile, a sip of the Bourbon Sea Salt Caramel milkshake is just what every stressed out exec needs on a weekday.

Clinton Street Baking Company & Restaurant is located at 31 Purvis Street 


3. Shake up with a cake shake at Cake Spade 

The first reaction most people have when they see a cake shake is “Wooooowwwww ….” and then they break into a smile. The combination of all your childhood’s favourite desserts in one single shake is simply the most joyful sight ever. Cake Spade’s Unicone is for those who have had a rough week and want to start the weekend with a huge dose of whimsy and sweetness. Topped with candy floss, rainbow sprinkles, and red velvet cake, it’s the dessert that’ll remind you of carefree days watching My Little Pony.

Cake Spade is located at 1 Tras Link, Orchid Hotel, #01-06


4. Hook up with Joyologist Dr Yvonne Looi

She can’t sit still. Doesn’t sleep well either. But, Debs has found the one thing that’ll help her mind switch off – baking. There’s nothing she likes better than just focusing her energy on getting a cake or a pie to turn out right. With this newfound passion, she has made it a point to bring back interesting ingredients whenever she travels, so she can use them in her desserts. She names Tokachi of Hokkaido in Japan as one of her favourite places.

    What never fails to make you smile?

    Baking with my daughter. I started her on baking when she was 2 years old. She first helped out by doing simple tasks like mashing bananas, mixing of flour and scoping of mixture into muffin cups. When she’s much stable and ready, she can do more on her own with me guiding her the steps and helping her to measure the dry ingredients. We always have fun baking together and seeing her grinning from ear to ear just makes me smile. 🙂

  44. Maybel Heng Says: October 29, 2015 at 2:46 pm

  59. It’s the simplest pleasures in life that we often take for granted. But when we find time to unwind and really focus on what’s truly important, then will peace set in, and true smiles appear on faces.

    For me, after a long day at work, after reaching home and enjoying a nice shower, what never fails to make me smile is my alone-time on the sofa, watching re-runs of one of the best sitcoms, “How I Met Your Mother”. With a nice cold beer in hand, and cooling aircon in my face, I always enjoy a good laugh, using all 17 muscles it takes to smile for a good 30 minutes.

Weekends are very precious now because it’s the only time I get to spend time with my family.
