    1. Is Singapore a better place to live in than Britain? I know there are bound to be some pros and cons in comparison but I would like to know what are your thoughts about the both of these two countries. What are your reasons for being a couple of Singapore expats and why did you choose this country to be your new home?

    2. Wondering what UK use to wrap those bundle veg and fruits to keep them fresh or last longer?
      Agree that we need to reduce plastic, however, an cheapless expensive alternative solution must be in place. If not it will be added to the food cause and price will be even more expensive.

    3. FYI, the lonely bunch of bananas on the left at 1:29 is pisang mas (small with rounded tips at the end of the bananas). The rest are 40-day bananas (small with nipple tips at the end).

    4. Were you looking for Cavendish bananas? They're the blandest bananas ever! Try the local bananas like pisang mas/pang jio, pisang berangan/ang bak jio, pisang raja, pisang rastali and the red bananas/pisang raja udang (press the banana: rock hard – unripe, softer – ripe). There's also the 40-day bananas but I personally do not like them and the cooking bananas which are the extremely angular-shaped ones – not good when eaten raw. You only get Cavendish in Europe as the skins are thick and are able to survive the long journey from its tropical plantation to a European supermarket. Go to a neighbourhood fruit shop and try a variety of bananas since you're in this part of the world.

    5. Plastic packaging everywhere here cos us Singaporeans reuse plastic. You can go to any household here and we all have a pile of plastic bags. Mostly it’s for the trash.

    6. FairPrice Finest at Bukit Timah Plaza, just down the street from Coronation Plaza, has a far bigger supermarket. You'll get wider varieties there, and better parking.

    7. Even for Fairprice quality, those chicken looks terrible… I get my chicken breasts/ thighs from Fairprice too because I can't stand the crowds at the wet markets but they never looked kinda grey-ish before. I would also suggest going to supermarkets with the butcher stations since the meats there will be fresher than the pre-packed ones although the prices might not be as cheap. Also try shopping at Giant or Sheng Siong. Some of the items might be cheaper there. Still, wet markets offer the freshest produce at affordable prices. For snacks like chocolates or biscuits you should try Valu$.

    8. Being a Singaporean, it is unusual even for my friends (in our mid twenties) to visit wet markets now. It is a BIGGGG learning curve but i hope it doesn't discourage you from going again and again and again 🙂

    9. You can try ShengSiong,most of the items are priced similarly to Fairprice and sone of their snacks are cheaper,the seafood there is alot fresher as well. If i’m not wrong there is a big shengsiong near bedok interchange.:-)

    10. I always shop for chocolates and potato chips at Mustaffa Center. No other place in Singapore carries such a wide and diverse range of chocolates than Mustaffa. For example, you can find Cadbury chocolates that are not only directly imported from UK but also from Australia and the middle east. You can find similar imported chocolates from various parts of the world and the prices for them are quite reasonable. Quality Street chocolates are also available there in different size packaging and I think the one that you bought actually cost lesser in Mustaffa and is also imported from the UK.

    11. Hey Georgia, just a lil recommendation. I live in the West area, and if you would like to go to a bigger Fairprice, i recommend going to Bukit Panjang Plaza! There's a variety of products there if you live in the West area. And the best part, it's two levels! There's another place in JB which is called MyDin. It's super cheap and you can buy a lot of stuffs there! Kinda like a Walmart of America. If your budget is ever tight for groceries like mine, do check this place out! It's cool!

    12. Hey! I shop there too. May I suggest that you spend one weekend exploring and shopping at a HDB estate (NOT a mall in a HDB estate). There are plenty of things to see and buy. There are wet markets as well as dry markets.
      Prices are also much lower.

    13. Are you guys against Giants or something? Did I miss the memo?

      Giants is the cheapest by far and fair price doesn’t even compare to the pricing! You can easily find foods for under 5, just have to find the best deals

    14. As people mentioned before, there are places like Value Dollar and Sheng Shiong, Giant for cheaper alternatives. And perhaps sign up for a membership like Passion Card or Ntuc card. ^^ Also, as you've said it yourself, the wet markets are great for fresh produce. You're able to get Salmon for $5 and a good sized fish for that price as well. Wait for offers / promotional discounts to get treats :> Snacks / Sweets like "After Eight" are available at Value dollar for way cheaper. Those prices are high because of the festive season packaging ><

    15. You can go to Frassler, it’s somewhere near woodlands. It’s like a wholesale place (?) that sells salmon at a good price.

      They do have some frozen soup that’s really good too!

    16. A large part of the plastic packaging is due to Singapore's reliance on external sources of produce. A lot are shipped in from overseas hence the protective plastic packaging. Especially for perishables.
