April bodes The springtime celebration of Easter, traditionally a Christian festival. but if you pop into supermarkets this month, you’ll find candy eggs (usually chocolate) of all origins and flavours nested in the shelves (see supermarket sleuth p22), a delicious symbol of rebirth and fertility. Other Easter egg-tivities include egg painting, egg hunting (look out for the Easter bunny!), And even rolling eggs down a hill. And just ’cause we love these fragile spheres, we bring you fun facts, our very own BiTES egg station, plus 10 brunch spots for your fill of #eggporn.
On days when even pasta seems too hard to make, here’s the laziest way to get dinner ready: throw your ingredients into a pot and let it cook itself. Whether you like it meaty, vegetarian or even Thai, pair the results with a fizzy Italian fruit soda to spruce up a reinvented meal at home.
Shotglass Bargain hunters have long known about Hock Siong, the karang guni in a warehouse. You’ll find furniture, bedding and kitchenware galore–sometimes used, sometimes brand new. Lucky us–we stumbled across this unopened set of fine champagne shot glasses. Do note…
Drink nothing but liquids for three days? Not for us! We at BiTES love our food-chewing ways too much. However, after having overly indulged during the heavy feasting season, we decided to start the year by swapping a meal or two every week with something from the blender. The results? Surprisingly delicious and inexpensive compared to store-bought juices.
