5 Food Scoops to Beat the Monday Blues
1. How to Save a Life (With a Bun)
We’ve all seen the news of the devastation caused by typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines. And it’s good to know that BreadTalk has joined the bandwagon to help out our Filipino friends in need. From 18 to 30 November, the bakery chain is offering two limited edition flavours– the Pork Sisig and Fish Sisig ($2.50 each). All proceeds from the sale will go to the “Red Cross Haiyan Relief” fund to benefit the victims.

On the brighter side of life, Christmas is definitely in the air. And The Fullerton Hotel already has something planned for it. On 27 November (Wednesday) at 7pm, drop by the hotel and witness their lights glow at the same time. It’s definitely a sight to behold.
This will be followed by the “Fullerton Chefs for a Cause” Charity Buffet Dinner. Part of the proceeds from this event will be donated to the Singapore General Hospital (SGH) Needy Patients Fund. The hotel will also be selling the Fullerton Santa Bear, and for every sale made from 27 November and 26 December, $10 will benefit the SGH needy patients.

For a real Italian pizza, both the Pizza con spinaci and Pizza alle olive in crosta are inspired by the region of Naples, also known as “home of the pizza”.
