Changi Experience Studio at Jewel Changi Airport {Review + Giveaway}

“4 hours? You mean there’s so much to do inside Changi Experience Studio in Jewel?”


I overheard Sophie gushing to her grandparents about all the fun and interactive games she played in Changi Experience Studio in Jewel. Yes, you heard me right,  games at Changi Experience Studio that kept us glued to this place for hours.

We were there for close to 4 hours and didn’t even realised how long we have been inside the studio until our stomachs started to grumble. Sophie was reluctant to leave and even suggested that we leave her to continue playing. We didn’t do that of course, otherwise she’ll miss eating at A&W with us.

Changi Experience Studio, that’s tucked away in a far corner of level 4, may be a less prominent attraction compared to the highly publicised Canopy Park, but after our experience, we were blown away by the many state-of-the-art digital experiences and fun interactive games.

There are lots to learn about the ins-and-outs of Changi Airport making it an edutainment visit for adults and children alike. Here’s a review of what you can expect in Changi Experience Studio and how you can win family passes as well.

Oh Crab, it’s back! Weekend Seafood Buffet at Spice Brasserie, PARKROYAL Kitchener Road

I don’t like getting my hands dirty when eating. But when it’s for a crab feast, I’m all up for it!

Crab lovers you’re in for a treat because PARKROYAL on Kitchener Road’s Weekend Seafood Buffet is back with the freshest catches and a new DIY mocktail bar at Spice Brasserie.

Bigger and Better Seafood Buffet at Spice Brasserie

From now till 16 August 2019, you can feast on unlimited servings of Spice Brasserie’s signatures including Stir Fried Slipper Lobster Black Bean Sauce and Chili Crab with Mantou for their weekend lunch.

And if that doesn’t wheat your appetite, the expanded weekend dinner buffet offers a wider selection of seafood dishes with fiery Black Pepper Crab and creamy Salted Egg Crab, alongside tasty creations such as Oatmeal Prawn with Curry Leaves.

Creamy and fragrant Salted Egg Crabs

Alexis and I enjoyed the the variety of crabs and oatmeal prawns when we were there for the dinner buffet. From our observation, the Salted Egg Crab was the hot favourite of them all.

In fact, when it was being dished out from the kitchen, guests who were waiting around like hawks dived in immediately leaving us with just the body parts, which dampen the satisfaction level. So my advice is, sit closer to the buffet line and be quick on your feet!

Another memorable dishes for us were the Steamed Whole Seabass Hong Kong Style (very fresh and sweet) and Slipper Lobster in Black Bean Sauce. But some dishes fell short of expectations like the Oyster Omelette that was neither eggy nor crispy and the XO Seafood Bee Hoon.

Shell lovers will be delighted with seafood on ice awaits with selections like the Whole Sea Whelk, Black Mussel, Marinated Stone Crab Claw, Seasoned Jelly Fish, Baby Lobster, Scallops on Shell, Marinated Clams, and more.

You can also enjoy a variety of Salmon, Tuna, Hamachi and Swordfish sashimi, and assorted sushi at the Japanese live station counter.

DIY Mocktail Bar

A new feature of the buffet is the DIY mocktail bar. Instead of standard soft drinks, you can customise your own mocktails with a delicious selection of refreshing sodas and flavoured syrups. Top off your mocktail with a selection of condiments including lychee and sour plum.

If it sounds intimidating, you can also opt to concoct drinks according to some tried and tested recipe that’s displayed as well.

Don’t forget to leave room for dessert as their selection for sweet and savoury treats to end a satisfying dinner is pretty good.

I’m no durian fan and skipped the Durian Pengat with Sticky Rice but heard good things about it from other tables. Instead I had Pulut Hitam and which was so good as well as other local desserts like Nyoya Kuehs and Black Sesame Mochi.

Letting our children author their lives

Sophie on Talking Point with presenter Steven Chia and friends talking about sharenting.

Mummy, “You should change your name to Sharon and your surname to Ting. You know why? Then you’ll be Sharon Ting, get it, get it?”

Sophie shot me a smug look and chuckled. She was clearly amused by her witty joke after we finished filming an episode of Talking Point with Steven Chia.

The Talking Point topic? Sharenting.

Are you guilty of oversharing?
