Captain’s log                              Stardate: 90170.4 (April 17th, 2017)

My fiancee had tag to me this event in Facebook, known as Artbox and she’s keen in checking it out. After much research into it, I discovered its actually a vibrant pop-up market kind that was first established in Bangkok, Thailand. The way I had read it, its more into focus on local designers, vintage fashion, handmade accessories, funky gadgets and home decorations that were hip and cool.

This is their own version of Pasar Malam or night market, but comes with a pulsating vibrant youthful vibe and bursting with creative energy.

So apparently, the Artbox finally makes its grand appearance in this sunny island. I read there’s over 500 stalls, and admission is free. Artbox Singapore will be taking place from 14 – 16 April 2017 and 21 – 23 April 2017. Its located at Bayfront Event Space which is beside Marina Bay Sands.

So yesterday the 16th, we take the chance to explore this hip and hype market. Its a blazing heat. But that doesn’t stop us for eyeing some of the stalls. My fiancee was eager to try some of them.

CROWD

Fan of foodies? Love food? Well, this is the place to be. Amazing mouth-watering selection waiting in line for you hungry food lovers to try out. Sweet and savoury delights waiting for you to indulge.

And for those who are into Thai food, here’s the place. Seeing them roasted before your every eyes. Good thing most of the food there were halal. Not a problem! 

FODDD

Before this I received from friends by word and from their posts and photos in Facebook, complaining that the event was super crowded during the first day. Not to mention, super long queue just to get their hands on those mouth-watering food and cool drinks. So their conclusion, its not worth going. But me and my fiancee decided, why not we give it a try.

Crowded as expected. But at the end of the day its worth it for us.

We managed to try some of the stalls that my fiancee has been dying to try out. Especially the Coyoro Dragon’s Breath cool snack. Its features the use of liquid nitrogen. The cool smoke will puff out from your mouth each bite you take. Cooling sensation! =D This is a must!SMOKEEEEEE

Another which is a must try is the Blood Bag drink. It comes in a blood bag and fix to the tube which looks almost identical to the one seen in hospitals. You can choose three blood…. I mean three flavours: Angel’s Blood (Blue), Devil’s Blood (Red) and Globin’s Blood (Green). My fiancee choose the red while I go for the green. You drink from the tube while carried the blood bag. Weird, but looks really hype! =D

blodddd

Been envelope in such heat, what better way to quench your thirst for some cool refreshing drinks. Try one of these, especially The Juicy Way, which comes in different awesome flavours =P

Most of the stuff, delights, drinks are cheap, below $10. Not just that, cause there’s also stalls that sells clothing, jewellery, plants and handicrafts. Even tattoos.

STUFFF

You walked around and its seems there’s many things to see and eat. The stalls were lined up close together, and you will find difficulties due to the lack of space to move around. Though the event concept is popular, be prepared for a mass of human jam. And for those who are driving, I advise, seriously NO! With such expected crowd, you can expect no empty lots! Unless you are there quite early even before it opens. Public transport is the best option. 

Was it worth going? Well, I leave it to you guys. Me and my fiancee find it worth, though we did not try most of the recommended street snacks. Next available will be from 21 – 23 April 2017 at Bayfront Event Space beside Marina Bay Sands.

So if you love such market that comes with style, creativeness and pop, this is a place to try out!

Speaking of street snacks, there’s one which is too irresistible and always there at every Pasar Malam. Even in Artbox Singapore.

Yes, you guess it! Its the famous Ramli Burger! Its here at Artbox. I was soooo surprised. Well, burger lovers, what are you waiting for? Grab a bite or two! =D
