So my previous post stated that I went to art box but it was so crowded that I didn’t get to do anything so this time I went earlier with my friends !
Yayyy We got to explore until the crowd came in at around 6.30-7pm!
So introducing artbox again… *drumrolls*
12 A bayfront Avenue
Nearest MRT exit : Bayfront Exit E
okay so I saw the news and they stated that more stores have been added and 2 rows of shops were moved to increase the amount of space.
And things were a lot better as compared to the first time I went – less crowded , more space
Well the crowd came in after 6.30-7? And you know it’s worse than being in a sauna !! 😵 even though its nighttime and it’s supposed to be cooling wth~
I was sweating profusely until I saw a lady holding onto two portable fans with a few more in her transparent plastic bag (no I’m not even kidding wth)
Anyway just remember to bring portable fans people if you are the type that cannot stand the heat! ~
Also please bring water bottles okay! Because mineral water are going at $2 per bottle 😳 and $3 for chilled ones 😳
anyway , it was a fun trip for me in general~
So… let’s go!
More space to walk..
So this is the first few stores that we encountered .whats a Thailand food market without Thai milk tea right ?
There was a queue infront of this store so we kinda assumed that it will be nice #singaporeansmindset
And so we queued for it but one of my friends were suggesting that we buy from the next store because we didn’t want to waste time so there we went! 🤗
It’s nice ! 😍
There were a lot of stores selling Thai milk tea ~ besides Thai milk tea, there were other Thai delicacies such as pad Thai, Mango sticky rice and kueh!
We bought mango sticky rice from this store because we heard that it was the best one around ! 🙂
Came across this multi-colored sticky rice ~ #somethingnew
Besides Thai delicacies , food from various countries (including Local ones HAHA) were also sold in artbox!
Duchess potatoes from Belgium!!
The lady boss explained that this is a delicacy from Belgium! So basically potatoes were mashed , fried, seasoned with seaweed and paired with scrambled eggs . It sounded so delicious that we couldn’t resist but to buy one …
And omg it’s really delicious ! The potatoes weren’t too oily , they were crispy and nice ! The eggs were delicious and just right ! Just take my money! 😂
Verdict : 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
First thought : omg 😳 I definitely have to buy that!
Well I was under the assumption that it’s actually a real scotch egg 😂 but no it’s actually breaded chicken with a normal egg in it modeling after a scotch egg ~ 😂
Nevertheless , it was delicious and we didn’t regret buying it !! The crackers were also crispy and delicious!
Truffle fries !!
Sweet potato truffle fries
I would prefer the sweet potato truffle fries though! Although if some of you like the strong truffle taste , the truffle fries may be a better option but personally I find it a little too strong ! 😊
Okay so this is supposed to be a delicacy from the sea (?) I never actually heard of this before but it’s known as the sea grapes seaweed (?) and is good for metabolism !
Since it’s our first time buying , we decided to buy the small bowl to try it out ! There would be a sauce that comes with the sea grapes (choose one from the menu!) We chose the soy sesame sauce !
And here you go!!
It tastes funky!! so imagine the taste of seawater + fish roe + seaweed and there you go , the taste of sea grapes!! 😂
it’s addictive though well at least to me and one of my friends . The other found it to be disgusting . 😂
Verdict : 👍🏻👍🏻
Okay so we came across this dessert store that sells rainbow macaroons and it looks awesome ! 😍 so we decided to get one to try! (Okay only me actually because my friends are not a fan of macarons ! ) HAHA
They have flavors like earl grey, Oreo cream cheese and bla bla (I cannot rmb 😂) but I bought the earl grey flavor and as you can see it’s really filled with a thick layer of earl grey cream 😊
Much as I couldn’t bear to eat this pretty little thing , my stomach was already sending warning signals so yeah here you go stomach 😂
Anyway the macaron was delicious! It would be better if it was refrigerated though!
Verdict : 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
So after all the food we were thirsty and came across this! 😍
The paddlepop drink caught my eye and i told my friends that I wanted that initially! However we kinda found out that the paddlepop were mostly made out of Bandung flavored syrup and I’m not really a fan of Bandung so we decided to change it to captain America !!
The third one from the bottom left ! 😆
The paddelepop drink looks nice though! Just that I’m not a fan of Bandung ! Bandung fans gogo! 👍🏻😆
Captain America!!! 😍♥️
Okay the drink was delicious omgz . The combination was right on point and yummy 😍
Verdict : 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
Spotted anything you would want from this store ? 😏😏😏😏
Well if you guys are mentaiko lovers like us , you would already be screaming 😂 (no of course I’m exaggerating ) but we absolutely love mentaiko so we definitely would queue for this !
So they mixed the quail eggs in a bowl then cook it like takoyaki ! (Innovative yeah!)
Oh ya and before i forget , they also sell wanton quail eggs ! 😋
The wanton quail eggs(not mine 😅)
So Yeap this is how it’s done!! 😍
OMG ITS DAMN YUM! The mentaiko melts in your mouth!!!
Verdict : 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
Okay so we decided to take a break from food because we were full so we went onto the merchandise section 😂
These cute little keychains are actually made by the deaf! 😊
Do support them! The keychains are also reasonably priced at $3,$5 and $8 according to sizes!
We got a batman with us ! 😆 ($5)
Omg this lady hand paint the bags! Talent spotted !!!!
It’s really cute isn’t it? And it looks so real 😍 give me a paintbrush and the only thing I could come up with would probably just be a heart shape 😂😂 (*shakes head at myself)
I love that slogan! 😂👍🏻
This is another store that sells merchandise made by lower income families 🙂 it’s sold at a steeper price though because it’s handmade delicately with threads 🙂
First thought: what is this bottle cap for ?
Cover yourself from the rain? 😂😂 idk?
Microwave pots ? Interesting !
Even flowers? Okay yes the haze is here time to use some power plants 😈
Dog food ?
And henna 😍
so after walking around we kinda got hungry again and walked back to the food section ..
Banana cheese ? The combination kinda made induced a flip in my stomach #nogo but if you guys are a fan go on and try it and tell me the result ! 😆
I actually tried this before ! (There’s another outlet in Orchard ion.. not sure whether it’s the same outlet..) It’s not bad but didn’t felt like eating at that moment !
Galaxy doughnuts for $3 !
it isn’t those you know $1 doughnuts you see outside .. it’s really kinda small? And so we concluded that $3 is not worth it 🤔 The other galaxy items were kinda priced steeply too!
Okay the nonsense Free made me LOL-ed! I probably need one 😂 (coz I’m really nonsensical)
Thai tea kaya 😳??
Sampled the Thai tea kaya but it’s super sweet hahaha ! 😵😵
Seems delicious but the price is kinda not worth it ($4) 🤔 so probably not
and to more food that we tried ..
Yes it’s getting dark and it’s sushi time!
What’s more it’s mentaiko sushi!
YESSSS that’s how they flame it!
Mentaiko scallop! It’s tender on the inside and the mentaiko sauce melts in your mouth!!!
Cream Cheese sauce maki!
The mentaiko maki will be the best!!! Finished it in a few seconds , what more can I say? 😍😍
verdict : 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
The drink that lights up ! Super pretty in the dark! 😍
There’s actually a lot of liquid nitrogen stores lying around and this one featured PM lee😂! So cute!
this stall “I want my noodles” is actually a traditional handmade concept noodle shop found in Shaw centre 🙂 (will be doing its review soon!)
Lola’s cafe and kook’s creamery also came to join in the fun! 😍
People people everywhere .. the crowd starting coming in at around 6.30 and it was really crowded at around 7 >< we had little space to walk & had to keep moving ~
and that, we decided to go home since we already finished touring the whole place ! 😊
And so, signing off with a full stomach ! 😂😂 bye!
