New Zealand Natural Cafe at NEX

This post was first posted on the old Rediscover.sg website by me. Since its no longer available on that site, I’ve decided to repost the article here.

It’s the first in the world and New Zealand Natural piloted their cafe concept here in Singapore! New Zealand Natural first entered Singapore in year 2000 by Delinatural, after 10 years we now have a cafe serving wholesome, healthy and value for money food.

Upon check-in, we were upgraded to an executive deluxe room (we booked a deluxe room) and when we entered the room, stayed for awhile, we realized the air-conditioning wasn’t working.

Truth is, the first thing he did upon entering our room was to touch the aircon control next to the bed and HE turned it off! Not wanting to argue, we let the matter past and he said the aircon was working fine, left and we waited.

The wonderful crew behind RediscoverSG has been (and is still am) working very hard for their first 10 part video series featuring the almost forgotten places and trades in Singapore. Launch is happening on Tuesday at Crazyworld Cafe. Here’s the teaser they’ve put together for a sneak peak at what to expect.

Well that’s really just a very tiny wee bit of what the 10 videos have. Do catch the first video of Unseen/Unsaid on Rediscover.sg come Wednesday!
