CHIEF YS

GOOD MORNING SINGAPORE !!!

WITH YS

What goes on at the wee hours in the city that never sleeps? What activities are already chugging along when most are still snoozing? Relax and destress by learning basic tai chi amidst the most gorgeous views as the sun rises. Then visit a local coffee factory to see how local coffee is roasted and finally to Waterloo Street where people of different faiths say their morning prayers. And finally local breakfast...to be ordered by you.

ITINERARY

Get in with the locals practising tai chi chuan exercises of regulated breathing that's great for the soul. A mind-body "soft style" martial arts, tai chi promotes serenity and brings about a calmness of the mind. Practising tai chi for even a few minutes helps relaxes the body and focuses the mind. Do this amidst the most luscious of views in the crisp fresh dew-filled air. Zen it out with the masters of this 800 year old martial art that’s not only good for the creaky bones but even better for the soul. Sometimes holidays should be less zipping around from point A to B, but instead allow ourselves to slow down and breathe...

Next a private-access-only tour to one of the few remaining coffee factories in Singapore that roast coffee beans the local way. Get an insider look at how local coffee beans are roasted in margarine and sugar for a knockout aroma. Let the roasters tell you industry secrets on techniques that will shock you about the roasting business.

Then we bring you to Waterloo Street. Where you witness two very different places of worship - next to each other. Here locals say their prayers and make their offerings at a Hindu temple and a Taoist temple before going to work. And finally, we bring you to a hawker centre. Learn the different ways to order coffee and tea the local colloquial way and what they mean. Then the true test! Order it yourself with the coffee shop and see if you get what you ordered. Along with coffee, you will have a scrumptious spread of the local breakfast.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS AND MORE DETAILS

  • FAQs
    1. Taichi really? Is it in any way spiritual?

      No. It involves breathing techniques, shifting of stance, calming the mind, all the good stuff that's great for the soul. But no meditation, nothing of that sort.

    2. At the coffee roasters, can we purchase the coffee beans or grounded powder?

      Unfortunately no. We are bringing you to a roasting factory not a retail shop. And these guys roast batches of coffee for coffee shop owners according to their specified blends. And don't forget, they don't open up their factory for visits to guests except us!

    3. Is breakfast provided?

      Yes. Not only is it included, YOU get to order it yourself at a hawker centre. Now we won't throw you into the deep end. You will be taught how to. It will be fun, and you will feel that much more local once you order and eat like a local!
