Although there aren’t any real pizzas growing on trees (sorry pizza lovers), here’s some good news for panda lovers. 

Aside from the newly-christened Le Le, one more panda has arrived in Singapore!

The mysterious pink paw actually belongs to foodpanda’s adorable furry new ambassador, Pau-Pau, who made his debut on Jan 3. 

Pau-Pau is a pink-and-white panda from the pandaverse who speaks his very own language known as Pandanese. 

Speaking to AsiaOne through a translator, Pau-Pau introduced himself, and said he was thrilled to finally be in Singapore. 

“Hello, Pau-Pau here, coming to you from the pandaverse. You’ll be seeing a lot more of me soon. I can’t wait to go on more adventures! Don’t be a stranger and hit me up with your food recommenda… ooo piizzzza.”

No prizes for guessing what Pau-Pau’s favourite food is. 

“We’re so excited that Pau-Pau is finally here in Singapore! We can’t wait for everyone to get to know him more over the next few months,” says Laura Kantor, Marketing Director of foodpanda Singapore. 

“With his cheeky and fun-loving personality, we are sure that he will fit right in, and will bring even more fun to the foodpanda experience. Stay tuned for his adventures in Singapore!”
