#Joeyjios: We took on a 1kg beef bowl challenge that costs $42, Lifestyle, Food, Singapore News

Is bigger really better?  This week on #Joeyjios, Le En and I answer that question as we tackle a monster beef bowl that comes with a hefty $42 price tag.  It’s two girls versus a (literal) mountain of fried rice and 1kg of yakiniku beef slices.  The prize? Honour, glory and walking away with from the restaurant knowing we’re in the league of local competitive eater Zermatt Neo.  His timing? A little over five minutes to finish the first (yes first) bowl. He went on to have another, like the overachieving…

The Good Friday crowd seemed undaunted by the wet weather – throngs of people held umbrellas and swarmed F&B booths, with many on the lookout for the shortest queue to join.

#Joeyjios: Here’s how you can spend 24 hours at Jewel Changi Airport , Singapore News

Changi Airport’s sprawling new Jewel is home to over 280 retail and dining options spread out across a massive 10-storey building. Not just another cookie-cutter mall, every brand there has upped their ante, promising an experience that cannot be mirrored anywhere else on the island. Whether it’s offering localised, Jewel-exclusive items on the menu (Starbucks), making a grand comeback (A&W) or being the biggest store in Southeast Asia (Nike), it’s a mall unlike any other. With so much to see, eat and do, we reckon that even 24 hours at…
