The holidays are a magical time of year. My favourite time of the year actually. My heart swells from all of the festive decorations, colours, lights, music, energy and love surrounding Christmas. Santa, gifts and sweets aside, surely the best part of the holidays are sharing these festive moments with the ones you love the most.
Throughout the year our work lives and various responsibilities can leave us tired and stressed and often keep us from spending as much quality time with our family and friends as we would like. So during this time, the holidays are a wonderful reason to gather your family and friends and catch up on lost time over a yummy meal, an ice-cold Coca-Cola® and the buzz and joy of the holiday spirit.
Rasapura Masters, Hawker Stalls at MBS
Head on over to the Skating Rink at the Shoppes at the Marina Bay Sands where the space has been converted into a jubilant ‘Festive Land.’ After your meal, friends and family can really get into the holiday spirit and create memories by getting their photo taken with Santa Claus at Santa’s Village (complimentary with a $50 purchase).
For those who may have been living overseas or traveling a lot throughout the year, you can find a huge selection of local Singaporean cuisine at Rasapura Masters. There are over 20 hawker stalls serving many local favourites such as chicken rice, satay, curry rice, bah kut teh, nasi goreng and much more.
In true Singapore street-food fashion, don’t forget to grab some cold cans of Coke® from the beverage station for the entire family to enjoy with their warm, tastes of home meal.
There is plenty of seating available at Rasapura Masters with a great view of Festive Land for the largest of gatherings, or more intimate four-seater tables for a small catch up.
Many of the foods stalls are open 24-hours – so although you may be stressed and tired from the obligations of everyday life, you have no excuse not gather your family and friends and catch up on lost time during this magical time of year. I mean, even Santa will be there!
Délifrance is another wonderful location to sit down and catch up on lost time that has gotten into the holiday spirit. With so many outlets spread all over Singapore, you can easily schedule a quick (or lengthy) meet up with even the most time crunched of people.
At Délifrance you can select from sweet Christmas specials such as red raspberry and green peppermint macaroons and an assortment of festive eclairs in chocolate, coffee, vanilla and rose flavours. Each festive delight goes nicely with a refreshing can of Coke – I find it to be the icing on the cake of a delightful afternoon treat.
So call up your family and friends, get out of the home and plan a meal, or even a simple afternoon treat, and share festive moments and happiness with the ones you love. The holidays will be here and gone before you know it!
