Because of the recent Covid-19 outbreak, malls have been quiter than usual as many prefer to avoid crowded places and stay indoors instead.

From now until further notice, Capitaland is providing free parking at it malls at different timings. Some malls offer free parking from 12pm, so you can plan to have lunch there, and others have free parking from 6pm onwards to draw the after-work crowd.

Business was as usual at Plaza Singapura yesterday, though a little quieter, I enjoyed the shorter queues as it was a breeze to run my arrands and have dinner without the usual crowd.  


On Feb 20, the Sausage McGriddles with Egg will be sold at a fraction of its price for just $3 (U.P. $5.40) with any purchase. Simply head down to the nearest McDonald's and enjoy this exclusive in-app promotion for the entire day.

Calling all McGriddles® Super Fans! For one day only on 20 Feb 2020, the Sausage McGriddles® with Egg ala carte is going...

Posted by McDonald's on Monday, February 17, 2020

Not going to lie, we think McGriddles are an acquired taste, but we know the burger with syrupy pancakes for buns has its fans.

After almost a year, the breakfast item has once again returned to our shores from Monday (Feb 17), for a limited time only.

This time, the McGriddles will be available all day, so if you can't get enough of the sweet-salty combination, it's available for not just breakfast but lunch, dinner and even supper. You can even double up on the satisfaction with a McGriddles stack which consists of two chicken sausage patties, along with cheese, a sunny side up egg, and crispy bacon, all for $6.20.

What we're more excited about though, is the return of the much-raved about chocolate pie (not to be confused with last year's chocolate-banana pie). It'll be available at $1.50 after breakfast hours. Let's just hope stocks will last longer than two weeks when it was first introduced locally in 2018.

Today is Valentine’s Day and what better way to start this special day by showing our love for our healthcare workers...

Posted by Melvin Yong 杨益财 on Thursday, February 13, 2020

To thank our angels in white during this uncertain time, nurses in uniform will get to enjoy priority queues for food at 33 participating stalls in Pek Kio Market and Food Centre.

Free lunch sets will also be available at the food centre, and healthcare workers can redeem a free loaf of bread each week from two bakeries beside the food centre, announced Moulmein-Cairnhill MP Melvin Yong last Friday (Feb 14).

Two hair salons in Pek Kio Neighbourhood Town are also offering discounted haircuts for nurses at only $9, which would normally cost $14.

Participating merchants and stallholders can be identified with a special decal on their shopfront, which states “MoCa cares for nurses, we support our healthcare workers in the fight against COVID-19”.
