dispensary_dcgTiong Bahru is one of our absolute fave Singapore neighbourhoods — there’s so much to explore, and we always recommend that visitors to Singapore head here first to get a feel for the “real Singapore”, stroll the streets, pop into the wet market and of course, treat themselves to coffee and a yummy goodie from one of the many fabulous cafes! We’ve definitely been guilty of playing favourites before (Tiong Bahru Bakery is our go-to way to start off a Sunday morning with the fam), but we’re happy to say it now has some serious competition from a new spot, The Dispensary, located just a 3 minute stroll away on Tiong Bahru Road.

With its setting in an old Chinese Medical Hall, The Dispensary is filled with local charm, just like the neighbourhood, with white-washed walls, a surprisingly spacious interior and a delicious selection of cakes, pastries and sandwiches, all made on-site. In fact, they even offer baking classes if you’re keen to brush up your skills! You can also pre-order cakes for birthday parties and other celebrations.

1240551_157703331096663_1137317213_nOpen from 9am on Sunday mornings, it’s a great place to grab a cup of joe and hang out for a while with the kiddos (though just TRY getting away without giving them a cupcake — we warn you, you won’t be able to!) or order up a grilled cheese toastie. They also have free WIFI for all you working mamas who fancy a change of scene and want to set up with a laptop. Be warned though, like other businesses in the ‘hood, they’re closed on Mondays.

1173678_158086214391708_1019965371_nThere’s nothing explicitly kid-friendly about them (apart from those mini-cupcakes we mentioned already) but what we’re loving is the spacious interior that’s perfect for a little mamas get-together and its quiet vibe. Once it’s discovered though, we can’t guarantee it will be quiet for long!

It's World Down Syndrome Day today. Let's raise awareness and together acceptance.⁣
We are aware that people with Down Syndrome are the same, deserving of equal rights, equal opportunities and privileges. ⁣
We are aware of what the features associated with Down Syndrome look like, aware of the discrimination and prejudice that people with Down Syndrome sometimes suffer. ⁣
We are aware that the world is not often kind to people with Down Syndrome.⁣

This year, the global theme is “Leave no one behind”.⁣
We count down the best outdoor playgrounds in Singapore (all free!) and share their top features, from slides to swings to zip lines. Wondering which playgrounds are worth the trip, mama? Watch our video to see our top picks, and let us know your faves! Check out our IGTV or #linkinbio for the full video! @gardensbythebay @nparksbuzz ⁣⠀

It's heating up in Singapore! Fancy making some frozen treats for the family today? #linkinbio⁣ for some gut-friendly froyo ideas, and if you aren't in the mood for DIY, we've got two brand new sugar-free ice-cream brands you should know about. The best way to cool down we think!⁣

Our hearts are filled with sadness at the terrible shooting that happened earlier today in New Zealand. Sending love and light to all those affected by this senseless tragedy.
