[Gathering] Mid-Autumn Festival Celebration + Steamboat

It is another year of the Mid-Autumn Festival, and what better way to celebrate it then to have meey up again with my peers and loved ones to do it traditionally! We arranged for a mini gathering at Henderson Waves Bridge, and the attendees, except for Joanne were the same people who attended last year. I was happy that Jasmine's parents were there us that night. I also brought Coco with me to join in the fun.
We made our way to the venue for the gathering. Upon reaching, we met up with one another at a small area at Henderson Waves Bridge to light up our lanterns.
We still spent a good 1 hour-ish with each other mingling with one another and we had a great chatting session, sharing our life in general. Of course, we were more interested in hearing from Meryl, as she is now a flight attendant!

We headed straight to Jasmine's Crib at Teban Gardens to have another round of celebration. Ryden was at home preparing a steamboat dinner for us! It was a pity that Jasmine's parents didn't join us for the dinner.

After our dinner, we had moon-cakes for desserts! I was happy that Coco behaved pretty well in the house too. My good furkid! I enjoyed our gathering very much, and nothing beats their companionship. Thanks Jasmine and Ryden for the wonderful steamboat dinner.

I end my post with my huge collection of gifts from Meryl. Thanks ya!

Lastly, Meryl helped me to pick up some beauty fix from VDL during her work trip to Seoul. These 2 items cost me around SGD48.

Farm tour - Quan Fa Organic Farm

If you love to eat fresh, organic and local vegetables, you can get them from Quan Fa Organic Farm as they provide a free delivery service for purchase that are more than SGD50. Alternatively, if your purchase is under SGD50, you can collect your purchase at the farm on weekends.

I was invited to visit Quan Fa Organic Farm which is located at Murai Farmway (Lim Chu Kang area). It is a family-run business, and also the first certified organic farm in Singapore. The farm relies on field cultivation and uses soil-based organic farming method to grow their crops.

Despite the obvious challenges of farming in Singapore, they insist on their belief to abstain from using pesticides and harmful fertilisers, in order to produce only the freshest food crop that are healthy and bring nutrients to the consumers' bodies.

I was impressed by Quan Fa on their belief in agriculture, and on their discipline to stay firm and positive to bring the only best fresh produce to the consumers. All these explain why Quan Fa has grown from a small organic vegetable retailer to one of the leading distributors of organic vegetables and fruits in Singapore today.

Mr JJ, the son of the founder, brought us around the farm and shared the tips of farming with us too.

Quan Fa Organic Farm is famous for their local Asian vegetables grown at the farm, as the harvesting, packing and delivering are done within a day.

We got to try some of the vegetables, and do believe when I say that organically grown food tastes better and is more nutritious. It also gives us a peace of mind when consuming organic vegetables as it contains the necessary nutrients a body needs.

Now, you can purchase their organic farm produce online through their website, and enjoy 10% off! To enjoy this deal, all you have to do sis to key in the promo code 'QuanfaOrganicFarm'. The code is not valid for promotional items and dried goods and is limited to one-time use per customer.

I got a box of Sunflower Sprouts from Quan Fa Organic Farm, and it looked yummy even though they were stir-fried simply, with Garlic!
