When it comes to taste buds, we all know moms are hard to please. Afterall, some of them cook daily for the family and have an acquired taste. How many times have you seen your mom gobble up that last piece of roasted meat, and then looking clearly unimpressed? Or heard half-hearted compliments when you take her to that new famous you heard about online?
No fear though! We reckon you can finally impress your mom’s hard-to-please taste buds with Ubin Seafood, a restaurant that started out as a home kitchen serving authentic kampong-style seafood in the North shores of Pulau Ubin. This humble establishment quickly grew because of terrific reviews , and is now known for serving some of the best seafood on the island. You can't go wrong treating your mom to a feast there.
Apart from fresh seafood and traditional cze char fare, they serve a Singaporean-take on American, French, Italian and Indian cuisine. Signature dishes include US Black Angus Rib-Eye Beef Steak and German-style Pork Knuckle.

When thinking of a gift for Mother’s Day, flowers are a no-brainer. Yet, it does get predictable sometimes because it’s seen as the go-to for special events. It’s sweet, but meh. Turn your gift up a notch with Bloomback! Bloomback is a social enterprise committed to the creation of beautiful bouquets and to bring joy to underprivileged women at the same time. Gift flowers to your Mom and give back at the same time.
How does it work? Bloomback’s team of elite florists recycle flowers used for events or functions to create beautiful bouquets for various occasions. Flowers typically have a far longer shelf life than the short events they are used to beautify, and Bloomback does a superb job at breathing life back into their pre-used bouquets. The money you pay then goes to the underprivileged women of Singapore. Bloomback’s beneficiaries include the Breast Cancer Foundation and the NTUC health nursing home.
A gift that keeps on giving? Definitely a gift Mom would approve of.
