Johor Bahru Pau/ Tim Sum (新山手工包点) is located in Changi Village so that we need not make our way across the causeway to buy. It is a nice little shop that sells an assortment of handmade paus with unique names attached to their individual creation. Read More

For Pokemon Go players, Changi Village is one of those hot spots for rare Pokemons. You can find Pokemons and Pokestops at the hawker centre (Blk 2 and 3), the neighbouring blocks 1,4,5 and 6, the ferry terminal, Changi Beach Park, Civil Service Club, Changi Village Hotel, etc, etc.

With so many places within the vicinity to catch Pokemon it will only mean that you will sweat, thirst and go hungry easily. The variety of food choices over here is synonymous to the list of Pokemons that can be found here.

Changi V. Dessert House (樟宜村甜品屋) is Lao Beng’s favourite dessert stall for a good refuel whenever I go on my Pokemon Go hunt in Changi Village. Read More

U Hakka Niang Tou Fu located in Circuit Road Food Centre is one good example of authentic traditional Hakka Yong Tau Foo. Read More
