A Place to Drink & Chill & Watch WORLD CUP!

Asmara Lifestyle Group has a little lifestyle cluster tucked away in the idyllic Bishan Park.

(The exact address is Bishan Park II, 1382 Ang Mo Kio Ave 1, Singapore 569931 )

Last week, I was invited to check the place out. ( I took Magic A/ Mr A with me... henceforth just known as just Andy). The whole place is like a mini natural utopia of sorts! There is the Aramsa Garden Spa...

It's beautiful and soooo tranquil. It feels like an island resort, I forget that I am actually in the heartlands! I am impressed with their spa facilities and will be back there soon as I have a free signature Touch Massage to go for (UP $98/60mins). [www.aramsaspas.com]

There is also The Green Room café (a vegetarian restaurant) and Canopy, an Australian-styled cafe & restaurant, creating a truly holistic lifestyle offering.

But my favourite bit is the new bar, which they're going to name Middle Rock... after the big boulder that is smack in the middle of the bar.

The Asmara philosophy is to live in harmony with nature.... so things there are kept as natural as possible. By the way, my jeans are new (cos all my old ones don't fit now, except an old pair of white skinnies)... this new pair was only $29 from the kids section of NewLook (313somerset)! And my shoes were 10 bucks from Cotton On! Cheapie :) The tank top I matched it with is from ClubCouture.

You can sit indoors under the canopy or outdoors and enjoy the breeze.
I love how the place feels so cozy and so natural... like I'm in a huge treehouse. Think we'll be back here to watch some World Cup matches...

Ooh... There's the World Cup Lucky Dip there. Every $80 spent entitles you to a shot at guessing the winning team. At the end of each match, those who guessed correctly will stand a chance to win a Hoegaarden beer tower worth $75 in a lucky dip.

    Never knew Bishan park has such a place! I am not a park person, so I never checked it out before.

    Definitely will check out Middle Rock bar now. Cool. Thanks Holly

  4. wasn't paid for this post.. just thought the place might interest my readers ( it is a lifestyle blog !) :)


    But i totally understand what you mean... and I have purposely not blogged abt my relationships/dating over the past few weeks. Because things are not very stable, and it's in early stages.. i don't want to jinx it.. and i dont want to get someone wrapped up in my online life, only to have him chewed up (by critical readers) and spat out ... and then have the r'ship not work out as well.

    :(

    It's tough. But of course when things get more stable, or if it fails miserably, I will share with you what's going on.
