Bar Rouge presents Halloween Party – Rouge Grossery Store

The most terrifying time of the year is just around the corner and the ghoulish and creepy are scaling scary heights at Bar Rouge this Halloween. Taking place on Friday 25th & Saturday 26th October 2019, Asia’s highest dusk-to-dawn club unveils Rouge Grossery Store, inviting both the feeble and the brave to enjoy an eerie night out at Bar Rouge’s fully transformed grim store, home to the Rouge Ripper.

Mustering all the courage required to enter, be warned of the chill down your spine as you walk into Bar Rouge’s ‘cold room’ where the Rouge Ripper presents his freshest cut meats on display. The Abominable Monster will also be on the prowl and if you scramble to take shelter in the Rouge Grossery Store, you may just be aghast to find the most sordid and macabre of Halloween surprises!

Packed with the finest, organic and raw foods for the Rouge Ripper, the Rouge Grossery Store offers you the chance to have a hammering good time as he looks for his next victim to add to his supply of fresh meat.

If you are dressed to theme, you will receive complimentary entry, and when the clock strikes 1.00am, the best dressed guest will be able to safely leave the ‘cold room’ with a 1.5-litre Bottle of Grey Goose Magnum (prize for 25 October), or a one-night stay at Swissôtel The Stamford with breakfast for two and a bottle of Grey Goose (700ml) (prize for 26 October), a safe place far away from the Ripper!

Over two nights starting from 10pm to 6am when the sun rises and the ghouls disappear, Bar Rouge’s Rouge Grossery Store will feature frightfully amazing performances from local resident DJs Kenneth Francis, Styluxtakut, Rattle and Fadille.

Chefs For A Cause Returns For The Fourth Year This July

Chefs For A Cause (CFAC), a signature culinary event organised by Project Happy Feet (PHF), returns this July to support education of underprivileged children. Held at the
unique meeting and event space HUONE in Clarke Quay, the fourth edition of CFAC features 14 well-known local chefs teaming up together to whip up their signature dishes2 on 7 July 2019 – all for a good cause of empowering lives through culinary arts!

Entirely sponsored by participating chefs, sponsors and volunteers, 100% of the proceeds for the event will go directly towards supporting education programmes for underprivileged children under the care of South East CDC and This Life Cambodia.

  • 80% of the proceeds will be channelled to a School Life Fund @ South East CDC to be launched by Mayor Dr Mohamad Maliki bin Osman during the event to support the needs at school of underprivileged students from mainstream primary and secondary schools, as well as underprivileged special needs students attending special needs schools to learn skills so they can make a living
  • 20% of the proceeds will be donated to This Life Cambodia towards supporting access to secondary school education in Siem Reap, Cambodia

Initiated by Chef Jimmy Chok from JC Concepts, this year’s event sees the return of familiar (chef) faces as well as newcomers. Besides Chef Jimmy Chok, participating chefs include returning chefs Pang Kok Keong (Sugar Daddy Group), Daniel Sia (The White Rabbit), Daniel Tay (Foodgnostic and Old Seng Choong), Ho Chan Fei (One Degree 15), Forest Leong (Sam Leong @ Forest), Louis Tay (Aston Group), Phillip Lee (Indoguna), Xu Tianmu (Project Chef), Anderson Ho (Snorre Food), Robert Chan (PARKROYAL on Kitchener Road), as well as new faces such as Benjamin Tan (The White Rabbit), Ken Zhang (Warehouse Hotel), and Then Chui Foong (Euraco Finefood).

“I am truly heartened to see the generosity displayed by local chefs, who selflessly contribute their time, money and resources to create delicious food for this meaningful event,” says Chef Jimmy Chok.

“Uniting us all through the appreciation of good food, I hope Chefs For A Cause can inspire Singaporeans to actively give back to the society, giving the less privileged children an equal opportunity to a proper education.”

This year’s CFAC presents an enticing array of 13 interesting Asian-inspired and classic western dishes that showcase the culinary flair of the chefs. From delectable savoury dishes such as the Braised Thai Vermicelli with Prawns and Chicken Bulgogi Taco to local-favourite desserts such as the Durian Puff and Crème Brulee Souffle Pancakes, patrons can expect a hearty gourmet meal that does not skimp on flavours. Patrons can also look forward to a special dish prepared by the Guest-of-Honour Dr Mohamad Maliki bin Osman, who has volunteered to help out with the fundraising effort.

South East CDC To Launch South East School Life Fund At CFAC

Started in 2001, South East Community Development Council (CDC) has long dedicated itself towards reaching out to the vulnerable groups of the society, initiating and managing programmes in collaboration with community and corporate partners to nurture a vibrant and self-reliant community.

Dr Mohamad Maliki bin Osman, Senior Minister of State, Ministry of Defence & Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Mayor of South East District will be launching the School Life Fund @ South East, a fund set up to offer financial assistance to underprivileged students from primary and secondary schools, as well as students with special needs at this year’s CFAC. Vocational training will also be provided to impart the students with relevant skillsets useful for future employment.

“Linked by a singular goal of empowering the needy, South East CDC shares the same mission with Chefs For A Cause. We are glad to find a compassionate group of chefs, sponsors, volunteers and donors who are committed to enriching the lives of the underprivileged children. There is a beautiful sense of collaboration of everyone coming together to help out amidst their busy schedules. I believe with our collective efforts, we can make a tangible difference in shaping a better future for these children and enable them to achieve their aspirations and pursue their goals,” says Dr Maliki.

Dr Maliki will grace the event as the Guest-of-Honor to launch the South East School Life Fund. At the event, he will also be doing a “live” demo of Chicken Rendang with Mantou and Acar, where portions of the dish will be auctioned off to further contribute to the fund.

Celebrating 10 Years of Project Happy Feet

This year’s CFAC is made special as it coincides with the 10th anniversary of PHF, a local not-for profit organization dedicated to bettering the lives of children through education since 2009. Run entirely by volunteers, PHF identifies meaningful and sustainable education-related initiatives and programmes run by local non-profit organisations, fund-raises for these programmes, and supports capacity building of these organisations. To date, through fund-raising initiatives such as CFAC, and the PHF Slipper Race in Singapore and overseas, PHF has raised in excess of SGD 1 million and channelled 100% of funds raised to benefit thousands of children and youth in Singapore, Vietnam,
Cambodia, Philippines, India and Nepal.

“This year, Chefs For A Cause holds an extra special meaning for us as we celebrate the 10th anniversary of Project Happy Feet. Looking back at the milestone we have reached, I am humbled to say that it has been a fulfilling journey filled with so much purpose. I would like to thank all the chefs, volunteers, and sponsors who believe in our cause and continue our efforts in supporting the less privileged youths and children across Asia. Chefs For A Cause has touched the lives of many, and we strive to make a positive lasting impact for those who need our help,” says Deborah Chew, Co-Founder of PHF.

Bar Rouge presents Singhai Sunsets and #Instaworthy Cocktail Series

Move over, unicorn drinks – there’s another #instaworthy drink set to take over feeds.

This April, Asia’s highest dusk to dawn nightclub Bar Rouge presents its new evening programme, Singhai Sunsets.

A nod to the international nightlife brand’s Shanghai roots and inspired by vibrant sunset hues over Singapore’s cosmopolitan, check out the following trio of visually striking cocktails that complement its stunning vistas!

CLOUD 9 ($20++)

For a taste of heaven, guests can start with a sail through the azure skies and over Singapore River with Cloud 9. A harmonious balance of citrine bite and soft saccharine notes, the delicate vodka-based drink is reminiscent of the day with its curaçao blue shade and fluffy lychee clouds.

MIDAS TOUCH ($20++)

When the metropolis is bathed with the gold of the evening, patrons can look forward to sipping theMidas Touch. A rendition of the Tequila Sunrise cocktail, the amber potion of tequila and the sweet summer flavours of pineapple, grenadine, and cranberry is the perfect drink to have in hand while admiring the sun-washed city.

URBAN TWILIGHT ($20++)

Inspired by the final breaths of day, the last of the series and most vibrant encapsulation of the sunset is the inventive Urban Twilight. Drawing on just curaçao, Cointreau, and cranberry, the brilliant pink and blue concoction resembles distilled dusk.

In addition to these amazing Singhai Sunsets cocktails, Bar Rouge also offers a selection of bar bites to sate your hunger pangs. With Asian twists on perennial bar food favourites, check out their Chicken Pizza, Spiced Fries, Wagyu Beef Sliders served with Gruyere cheese, and Salted Egg Prawns!

Can’t make up your mind? Purchase a package of all three cocktails for $50++, and top up just $8 and $20 for fries and pizza respectively.

Plus, with Singhai Sunset cocktails available from 6pm to 10pm, let Singhai Sunsets transit you into the weekend as their resident DJs Kenneth F & Brendon P spin the chillest beats of nudisco, soul & house and disco beats.

Where’s Bar Rouge?

Perched atop the tallest hotel in Singapore Swissôtel the Stamford, Bar Rouge delivers multi-chromatic panoramas of the Singapore skyline from the 71st and 72nd floors.

Late Night Dinner at Toa Payoh Central

It was 9.45pm and the stalls at Toa Payoh Central were closed.

All the hawker stalls and food stalls too were closed.

All except this stall, 常来一碗, or “Always Come Here for A Bowl”, noodle house.

This noodle house is the only stall opened, it seemed, at this hour. We were thankful and settled for two Ban Mians, and 10 dumplings. They were kind enough to let us try 5 fried ones and 5 steamed ones.

To my surprise the soup base was pretty bland, but nothing some vinegar can’t solve. For $3.50 I would say the amount of ingredients was about right.

Here are the dumplings, which were $5.50 for 10 dumplings. I would say I’ve tasted better steamed dumplings, but the fried ones were not too bad – with vinegar.
