Over the past week, many of my friends have been raving about assam laksa on Instagram from a booth at the People’s Park Center.

I had never heard of Super Star Original Famous Penang Laksa before, but the photos on the dish were enticing.

At $ 10 for delivery (based on taxi fare) it wasn’t cheap. But it was the largest bowl of assam laksa I’ve eaten, with a generous amount of noodles, fish, and toppings.

What does homemade muah chee (sticky rice balls) have that store-bought ones don’t?

The extra sweet taste of satisfaction money can’t buy. Add toppings and add or reduce the amount of sugar, to taste.

Have children take an online quiz that determines their natural talents or “smarts” – Body Smart, Logic Smart, Music Smart, Nature Smart, People Smart, Picture Smart, Self Smart, or Word Smart. These are taken from the Multiple Intelligences Development Scales (Midas) skill assessment tool.

Then they can work on different task sheets – some are good for solo play while others encourage family participation.

The sheets can be downloaded from the Nickelodeon Academy of Smarts website. It is a free activity-based online platform based on the UOB Kidsmart program.

The Capitol Theater, located at the junction of North Bridge Road and Stamford Road, opened in 1930 on this day. It was considered one of the best cinemas of that time and could seat at least 1,600 people.

In 1987 the theater was acquired by the government for conservation and its last film was screened in 1998.

After a 17-year hiatus and a four-year renovation, the theater officially reopened on May 22, 2015, with the performance of Singapura: The Musical.
