Where to eat at CBD?

I have a few girls emailing me that they will be starting work/attachment in the Central Business District really soon and wants some recommendations on where to get cheap food!

Oh boy! I understand how that feels, especially when I started my first office job after my O-levels at Boardroom, Raffles Place. Everything is so pricey cause of the location! I remember how a plate of chicken rice would cost at the foodcourt of Clifford Centre or even a cup of drink!

Thankfully, I had nice colleagues whom I met during this period of work! Ana, Jovina would bring me across the road to Golden Shoe Food Centre, where we can get really affordable cheap, yummy and generous food! The food centre is 3 stories high, loads of varieties to choose from! I would always go to the 3rd floor to get "Chap Cai Peng", Mixed Vegetable Rice! Dirt cheap at $2.50 for 4 dishes, be expected to see a queue when you are there. The downside to this place is the difficulty to get a seat, so we used to just "Ta Pao" back to the office. There are 2 such stores just opposite one another, so I would usually see what dishes they both have before queuing up! Teehee!

Another yummy stall to look out for on the 3rd floor is this Western Food store run by an auntie and uncle! At just $3.50 (if i didn't remember wrongly), we can get a plate of chicken chop! 

50 Market Street
Raffles Place


Another food centre to recommend is the one at Tanjong Pagar, Amoy Street Food Centre! Just a stone throw away from my office, another place to visit for huge portions at a low price! 2-stories high, definitely must recommend this "Wanton Mee" store on the 2nd level! One-man show, this auntie at Tai Seng Noodle, serves us a plate of wanton noodles with generous helpings of char siew and about 6-7 fried wantons + a big bowl of soup with over 10 wantons in it at only $3! Super value for money! Been there a couple of times, this poor auntie doesn't have the time/helper to count the Wantons that's why we lucky customers get tons!

Another store to try is Pao Ji Fish Soup also at the 2nd level! Huge portion of fish slices, fresh and non-fishy!
P/s: Level 1 has this good "Ba Zhang", Rice Dumplings store that Mummy used to buy home for us! Need to "order" one! You could try your luck in getting 1 to try when you are there! (:

Starting to sound very auntish, hope this 2 places would help you guys save some money! (:

Hello Vicky! Thank you! (:
I started doing events before having a blog, and readers seemed pretty interested in events that i did thus, the increase in readership which got advertisers coming in.

I moved on to fashion shoots and slowly got hired for blogshops shoots as the owners felt I could carry off their labels (:

I never felt that we have to be good looking to have a blog with readerships cause its the content that matters. Such as writing interesting topics that can be found on google search!

Hope this helps (:

Hi Vicky. I joined the new paper new face and got to know friends who recommended me into events. I was approached on streets loads of times but these companies usually just want to get new girls to pay for pricey portfolios.

Real agencies wont charge a cent (:
