The Hotdog Bar: Seriously SEDAP Beef Burger at KSL Mall in JB

the hotdog bar

We had lunch today at The Hotdog Bar in KSL mall. In the past, we’d always walk past this eatery after we had taken our meals because it’s not in a prominent location in the mall so it won’t be the first place you spot (after a visual scan upon entering) nor does it look so memorable that you won’t forget to come by first the next time you visit KSL. I say this only because I spotted a wine bar in JB that’s called “Fat Cork”! LOL. Now it’s in your brain, you won’t forget it either. Muahaha! Interestingly enough, I prefer the burger I ordered, as compared to the hotdog bun he wanted to try. Maybe they should name this place ‘The Burger Bar’ instead as they serve up some mean beef burgers!

This burger looks so harmless, right?

ksl the hotdog bar

It’s actually their Mozzarella Burger. It has a “homemade patty” (really? They make the patties themselves?) – choose from either chicken or beef – and lots of “premium mozzarella cheese”. Apparently, if you pull it apart correctly – down the middle – you’ll see the stretchy strands of cheese…

I wanted to be the one taking the photo, so this happened instead:

the hotdog bar burger

Just take my word for it that it is REALLY cheesy. OMG so sinful! And I almost wanted to order chicken instead of beef ‘cos it is more environmentally friendly (raising chickens produces less greenhouse gas) but I just really like beef so… GREAT CHOICE! ๐Ÿ˜€ *I don’t have air-conditioning at home so that’s my excuse. Also, I have to add that the beef was so tender. And it’s not in one big slab; it’s more like one of those meat patties my mom makes which are crispy at the edges but fall apart easily. Delicious! The burger was pretty big, but if I order it again, I am definitely going to eat it all myself… slowly.

Here’s their menu if you’d like to have a peek:

I’d love to try the “Singapore Chili Hotdog” next time. A hotdog with Singapore Chili Crab sauce sounds sedap to me.

And upgrading our meal to a combo sure made a lot of sense. For just Rm 4.50, we get french fries and a cup of lemonade.

This is the Hawaiian Hotdog he ordered:

Hotdogs and pineapples just don’t quite go together, if you ask me. But beef and cheese sure do! ๐Ÿ˜€ Order the burgers instead.

Psst: This meal cost us just Rm33.30 which is about S$11. *gasp* I know what you’re thinking too. Go try this soon! It’s worth the journey into JB. ๐Ÿ˜‰

The Hotdog Bar is located on the Ground Floor of KSL mall. You can find them on facebook as well at ‘thehotdogbarjb’.

Scoop Burger: Muslim-Owned Halal Eatery At Kallang MRT

kallang mrt scoop burger

As I was in the area yesterday, I used the Fave (a.k.a Groupon) app to find a deal for dinner. And Scoop Burger was it. I don’t usually have makan at or near Kallang MRT so I didn’t even know this eatery existed (thank you, Fave)! For $8.50, I received a beef burger, 2 sides and a drink. There was a Malay couple (I suppose) manning the shop and I was the only customer having an early dinner then. Seated on one of the bar stools facing the bus stop and the main road, with the duo bantering in Malay behind me, it felt like I had entered a Malay family’s home – very cosy, very homey.

scoop burger

I guess one word sums up the burger: hearty. After eating one, and possibly downing a glass of Coca-Cola *burp*, you’ll be feeling full for the next couple of hours. The burger buns are a little dry so I guess that’s why there’s so much sauce. I asked for mushroom sauce with my beef burger, but I think there was probably mayonnaise and some other sweet sauce too. Like one of those burgers you can get at pasar malams, or anywhere Ramly burgers are sold, be prepared for a dripping mess if you pick up the burger. I used the teeny weeny set of plastic cutlery provided to cut up the burger in a bid to reduce the possibility of said mess happening. The mashed potato was decent. I brought the nachos home for my nacho-loving partner to enjoy. (I don’t like nachos very much)

Somehow, I was drawn to the colorful display of beverage cans on the wall. And in case you were wondering, I did not order Coke. I had mineral water instead. Too much sugar and I’ll have a “food coma” after.

Here’s the Scoop Burger menu for your reference:

I didn’t see any other food stalls at Kallang MRT. I thought there was a Mr Bean outlet, if my memory serves me well. But it seems like everything else has shut down except for Scoop Burger which has been in operation (according to the Malay dude) for a year and a half. If you’re in the area, go in and support this small business! ๐Ÿ™‚

I like Groupon / Fave very much as it serves as encouragement to venture into new places. What I’ve also noticed, unfortunately, is that the merchants who choose to advertise via such websites are either (1) new entrants (they’ve just set up shop and need to tap into Groupon’s database of customers), and to get the word out, or (2) those struggling to keep the business afloat. Because of this latter group, many Groupon vouchers we’ve purchased had to be refunded because the businesses had already folded by the time we went by – such as the Milkissimo gelato shop at Nex.(They sell bubble tea now)

It’s a little upsetting that I have no Malay friends. Come to think of it, I’m not even sure why. I do have one pal who’s Indian and I make sure I pop by his place for Deepavali every year when he invites me.

And there are certain things we don’t realize immediately when it comes to race + food. Such as when a new coffeeshop opened near my place and we saw all the Malay families seated in front of the Western food stall run by a Muslim man. The majority of food stalls in the new coffeeshop are run by Chinese folks and are not Halal certified. What does this mean? While us Chinese folk can order from any stall we want… there’s only 1 stall which can serve the Malay community. I guess this is also why halal food blogs do well here in Singapore – that’s a niche which serves a real need. Many people like to eat out, but few notice that our Muslim friends may not enjoy the same convenience that we do.

IJOOZ: Freshly Squeezed Orange Juice at 2 Dollars A Cup!

ijooz fruits vending pte ltd

Yesterday, I enjoyed my third cup of IJOOZ orange juice. Strictly speaking, it was my second cup because there was a most unfortunate incident with the first one. I first spotted the IJOOZ vending machine at Fortune Centre when I was there for vegetarian food. And because my pals and I were heading to the Singapore Discovery Centre after our meal, I kept the juice in my backpack so I could drink it later in the day. Somehow the cup got crushed and my backpack smelled of orange juice for DAYS! The next two times, I made sure I drank the juice IMMEDIATELY. Haha! Got cup #2 and #3 at another vending machine located withinย SAFRA Punggol‘s gym. ๐Ÿ™‚

I think it’s a really good price. The juice from 4 oranges* goes into each cup, and yes, it may not fill the cup to the brim, but hey, it’s $2 only! And there’s no ice, water or sugar syrup added. But Singaporeans just love to complain. I visited IJOOZ’s facebook page, noted some complaints about the juice not filling up the entire cup and could only roll my eyes. I feel sorry for the boss. After investing in all this technology, and paying for the rental of the space and the electricity to run these machines, and the maintenance, and the sourcing of fresh oranges daily… and people want to complain that there’s not enough orange juice for $2. I suggest they head to the market, buy oranges, and go home and squeeze the oranges themselves. ๐Ÿ˜› Alternatively, consider making the ijooz cups smaller, so the juice from 4 oranges will always be sufficient to fill the cup to the brim!

*Update: I’ve heard from IJOOZ. Apparently it could be 3 or 4 or even 5 oranges depending on the oranges used that day. (I always counted 4, so I’ll certainly be looking out for #5 from now on). Also, I forgot to add that I’m impressed this company gives away oranges to charity – those oranges which they have deemed too small or too big or that have blemishes. I think it’s a great idea! Prevent food waste and also delight some folks! ๐Ÿ™‚

fruit juice vending machine

I think kids will certainly enjoy watching the process. The oranges roll down, get squashed, the peel gets disposed of, and the juice flows into the cup. And come to think of it, the seeds get removed too! ๐Ÿ™‚ How can anyone complain when it costs just $2 and saves you all the time and effort in buying oranges and squeezing out their juice?! Oh wait…

๐Ÿ˜€

orange juice vending machine

ijooz orange juice

And I found this post on the company’s facebook page. Apparently, people want to know if the oranges are washed beforehand.

ijooz oranges

Picture from ijooz’s facebook page

“People always wonder if we wash our Oranges — Well, every orange that goes into our machines are firstly hand sorted, then put into our high pressure jet and brush roller machine, to get rid of the wax and other impurities on the skin. After the wash, they are dried and placed into our chiller room. They will stay there till our operation teams takes them out and topped up into our machines island wide daily.”

~

If you haven’t tried IJOOZ’s orange juice, go find a machine near your home or office! ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s refreshingly cool, might have a hint of sourness (just like when you eat an orange) but is largely sweet, and gives you more than your daily requirement of vitamin C. We need just one orange’s worth, and the rest gets passed out via urine. So, feel free to share the orange juice with a loved one! And please, for goodness’ sake, don’t complain about the amount of juice lah. Have you bought a pack of potato chips before? The chips constitute probably 20% of the bag – go complain about that instead! ๐Ÿ˜›

Kim’s Place: Forget The Hokkien Mee, Order The Crispy Thai Sauce Chicken Instead

Kim's Place Hokkien Mee

You’ll probably know Kim’s place because its owner is famous for frying hokkien mee while wearing a gold Rolex. I haven’t seen him in action yet though. But I’ve been to the outlet that’s not air-conditioned (like your regular kopitiams) and the atas one with air-conditioning and rather snotty staff. If you want to try good Kim’s Place Hokkien Mee, go to the outlet at Jalan Eunos (no air-con lah), but if you’d like to try the other dishes they offer, you can dine in air-conditioned comfort at their restaurant in Joo Chiat Place.

The Hokkien Mee you see in the picture above looks good… but tastes so-so. It’s coffeeshop standard. Absolutely nothing to shout about.

The drinks were more than decent. Go ahead and order their water chestnut and barley drinks. They’re really gao, unlike the watered down versions you get everywhere else.

Kim's Place review

Sambal Kang Kong – decent, but definitely eat this with rice ๐Ÿ˜€ (*Oh man, now I’m hungry)

Kim's Place Sambal Kang Kong

Skip the assam curry fish head. So watered down and mild. Rather disappointing. And there’s not enough meat to share among 4 people. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Kim's Place Assam Curry Fish Head

The oyster omelette was good, especially ‘cos the oysters were huge. ๐Ÿ˜€ (*Aiyah I really can’t do this food blogging thing at night; so hungry…)

Kim's Place Oyster Omelette

And for the best dish we tried that day: the Crispy Thai Sauce Chicken! ๐Ÿ˜€ Spicy yet sweet, crispy yet tender. My goodness! Why didn’t I dabao some home?!

Kim's Place Crispy Thai Sauce Chicken

I think it’s a good thing to be known for just one particular dish that you cook really well. However, quality control is SO important when the business expands and there are multiple outlets.

Also, it’d be really nice to meet the Rolex Uncle at least once. ๐Ÿ˜€

Kim’s Place is located at 43 Joo Chiat Place S(427767). There’s an open-air carpark diagonally opposite the restaurant. ๐Ÿ™‚

Swee Choon Dim Sum ็‘žๆ˜ฅ็‚นๅฟƒ: Menu, Prices and Expectations Vs Reality

swee choon dim sum

When Singaporeans want to enjoy cheap and good dim sum, they’ll usually head to one of two places: Wan Dou Sek (126 ๆพๅˆฐ้ฃŸ) or Swee Choon (็‘žๆ˜ฅ). It’s even better when you go with a few friends so you can order a variety of dim sum and share. And during this visit, I did something I’m not proud of: I ordered a dish solely because I thought it would look good in photos. Haha! You’ll see it in ‘Expectations vs Reality’ at the end of this post. Also, as can be expected, Swee Choon’s doing a roaring business. When we visited early in the evening on Monday, there was already a queue, and the coconut pudding as well as soya bean drink was sold out already. Soya bean drink sold out at 6pm? That’s serious business!

As you can see above, we ordered some fried items… plus these ones below:

swee choon dim sum restaurant

The chicken wings were really well-marinated with the prawn paste. The flavors had all been infused within the chicken meat. Delicious! The deep fried salt & pepper squid tentacles were really yummy too! Everything else was so-so – not bad, but not mind-blowing either.

I thought the shrimp on the fried rice was so pretty though:

And now for Expectations Vs Reality. I thought the Fried Custard Pumpkin looked gorgeous on the menu. What was served looked rather pitiful. Haha!

Taste-wise, it was chewy and slightly sweet. Like a mochi confection. Quite yummy, if you’re willing to overlook its appearance. ๐Ÿ˜€

Swee Choon is closed on Tuesdays. Pop by on Mon – Sat from 11am to 2.30pm or 6pm to 6am. On Sundays and Public Holidays, they are open from 10am to 3pm, and 6pm to 6am.

U-Cha / Milkissimo Bubble Tea: Cheaper, Cuter, With Cheese Teas Too!

Milkissimo bubble tea

I tried cheese tea for the first time ever yesterday, even though I have said I’m never going to fork out good money for something so outrageous! In my defense, it was just a small, sample cup. While I can’t say I like it very much (cheese tea tastes as weird as I imagined it would be), I totally adore the mascot and the bubble tea cups (or mugs if you will) at U-Cha or Milkissimo at Serangoon NEX. Located at level 2 of the mall, next to the escalator that takes you up to level 4 (where the cinema is), it’s difficult to miss the huge teddy bear outside the bubble tea shop.

So smart of them to place the bear here. It’s like a kid (and female) magnet:

Ucha Mascot

Ucha menu

Cheese teas are priced between $3.60 and $4.20. And there are fruit teas, lemon tea and of course, milk teas! I tried their Agar Bubble Milk Tea ($3.30) which was milk tea with white pearls, basically. It was a decent cup of bubble tea! A rich milky flavor, with a distinct scent of the tea leaves, with a generous serving of pearls.

They also have a panel by the side with canisters containing the various tea leaves. You are welcome to open the lids and have a sniff. Some customers will certainly love this kind of sensory experience, and staff can take the time to explain the characteristics of each type of tea leaf, etc, when there isn’t a crowd. This will certainly help foster brand loyalty.

Ucha tea leaves

Apologies for the quality of the pictures! I think we were too shocked that the original Milkissimo gelato cafe had been suddenly replaced by this bubble tea shop. We’d bought a Groupon voucher for 2 large cups of gelato (3 flavors each) and were here just to redeem them. And lo and behold… they sell bubble tea now.

Milkissimo Serangoon Nex

As the shop is in its first few weeks of business, the staff are still tweaking the recipes. They asked for my feedback since I was trying their bubble tea for the first time, and as there weren’t any other customers, I went ahead and drank about a quarter and gave them my comments. In turn, they gifted me this little teddy accessory. How cute!

U Cha bubble tea

I love the cups as they come with the teddy bear print, which is so kawaii! If you’re purchasing the milk teas, you can also get your drink in the plastic carriers.

The next time I’m catching a movie at Serangoon Nex, I’ll certainly be tempted to pop by and grab a cup of bubble tea to enjoy together with my movie. ๐Ÿ˜€

~

Update 22/06/17: I tried the Cassave Bubble Milk Tea ($3.30) this time – basically it’s the regular black pearls with milk tea. And I didn’t quite like the drink this time round as it seems a little diluted and the white pearls are definitely more delightful.

K Garden: 6 Hours Of KTV For Only 10 Bucks! You Get A Free Beer Too!

k garden ktv review

Located within Serangoon Gardens is K Garden KTV where you can sing karaoke for 6 hours during their ‘happy hour’ and pay just $10 per pax. You’ll also get a soft drink or glass of beer! It’s almost like singing K at home… really. There’s hardly any difference as your neighbors (in the next room) will be able to hear you sing, and you can appreciate their singing too. ๐Ÿ˜€ #ifyouknowwhatimean As with budget airlines, there are no frills. That means no snacks, no wet wipes, no free flow drinks, and certainly no ice cream (that you’ll find at some Manekineko outlets). You can bring in your own food though. There’s Chomp Chomp across the street so if you’re craving for BBQ chicken wings… #justsaying

6 hours of singing is not a feat many can accomplish. My partner and I decided to leave after about 4 hours or so. Here’s the price list so you can decide when you want to visit K Garden. Bring more friends! With the combined effort, you might make it to the end of the 6-hour session!

k garden price

For $10, it’s a really basic setup. You pick your songs via the touchscreen panel – no remote controls – so that means people have to keep moving to get closer to the screen. That’s not a bad thing either as it gets really cold in here after a while.

And for reasons unknown to me, the system in Room 7 has an issue with Jay Chou’s song “ๅฎ‰้œ” You get the blue screen… with no lyrics and no MTV playing. There’s just the music in the background and you may or may not want to sing along…

serangoon ktv

Worked fine with all other songs though. Someone doesn’t like “ๅฎ‰้œ”, I guess.

I ordered hot honey lemon while he had beer.

karaoke serangoon

Interestingly, when I went to visit the washroom, I could hear my ktv partner singing loud and clear. So… when it comes to singing, if you’ve had neither practice nor talent, please lower the mic volume or just not come here. ๐Ÿ˜€ And if you were in the loo while I was singing in Room 7, I’m sorry. I hope I didn’t cause your eardrums to bleed. ๐Ÿ˜€

If you would like to visit, K Garden is located at 18 Maju Avenue Serangoon Gardens, S556693. Tel: 6287 7256.

Lobang King App: Free For Merchants To List So Should Groupon Be Worried?

Lobang King Singapore

More than a week ago, I received a press release regarding a new mobile app called “Lobang King” (how very Singaporean!) and the PR took about a week to respond to my queries, hence I’m only blogging about it now. ๐Ÿ˜› What you need to know: unlike Groupon, there are some deals a.k.a lobangs which you can get for FREE (usually one per person) and merchants can list their products and services FOR FREE at this point. The PR person says they are “exploring at this moment whether we could make this feature permanent” but I have my doubts at how feasible this would be as apps, unfortunately, aren’t created and maintained for free. And PR services cost money too. ๐Ÿ˜›

So, if you are selling something (anything, really), go list it on Lobang King. The pool of customers is small right now – I noted only 1,000 downloads (Android) – but the list of merchants is small too which means you can get spotted by users easily unlike on Groupon (a.k.a. Fave) which has an avalanche of deals on most pages.

Here are two deals I spotted:

Lobang King Rochor Beancurd House

If you don’t already know, the beancurd at Rochor Beancurd House is delicious! And lots of local celebs head there for tau huay. A 50% discount is always welcome! ๐Ÿ˜€

And I found an F.O.C deal. Claim a free bottle of herbal tea when you pop by Oriental Herbal Tea in Tampines Central. I haven’t heard of this brand before, but I’ll surely keep a lookout for it now.

Lobang King Oriental Herbal Tea

The sad thing is I have to actually be present at the store before I can “KOPE” the deal. If I’m staying in Jurong, I certainly won’t travel to Tampines just for this freebie. By the time I get there, the 291 bottles may have been snapped up by people who live nearby.

Lobang King merchant

Right now, there are so few lobangs, it’s almost pitiful. What’s taking those merchants so long to list here? It’s FREE!

Lobang King

Lobang King app

My personal experience with downloading and using the app to look for deals: Signing up as a user was horrific – it took 3 attempts. Apparently, NOT identifying my gender (which is an optional field anyway) means the signup process would go smoothly. If I try to input gender, nothing happens. ๐Ÿ˜› And within 5 minutes of using the app, it crashed once. Oh well. Teething issues, I guess.

I have uninstalled the app, as there’s not much storage space in my handphone right now. And there aren’t too many merchants I’m interested in either.

But I certainly will download it again when more businesses come on board. The Lobang King sales team sure needs to get their engines started. There are so many merchants on Groupon / Fave. Call them, maybe? ๐Ÿ˜‰ When it’s free to list, I don’t see why businesses would say ‘no’.

Creamery Boutique: Cute Concept, Reasonable Prices, Suitable For Kids

creamery boutique lava cookie

I’ve been wondering what that lava cookie hype was all about, and I found out yesterday evening. Creamery Boutique first set up shop in Bangkok and their outlet in Singapore (at 139 Tyrwhitt Road) is about 6 months old. Their lava cookies are definitely Instagrammable (take a video!) but there could be improvements in taste and presentation for longevity in this tough F&B industry. I like that the lava cookies (which come with ice cream) are priced at $8.90 each. And as a pal mentioned, there’s no service charge or GST. The decor is pretty cute, though most of the decorative items are placed out-of-reach so it’s rather difficult to use them as props for your photo-taking. Will there be a cafe with ‘Instagram corners’ so people can take good pictures of their own food for other people’s social media consumption? ๐Ÿ˜‰

creamery boutique

I have to say that the wait for the cookies to be prepared is really long though. If you have noisy and demanding children, it might be too long a wait for them to handle! Once the cookie is ready, the staff will come over with your order of lava cookie and wait for you to take your camera out. Then they’ll place the scoop of ice cream on top of the cookie, and the cookie filling will flow out.

Creamery boutique ice creams

This novelty factor will see customers coming in for the first visit, but I’m not so sure about repeat business. To me, the little serving pan and the colorful plastic spoons are a little kiddish. It reminds me of the toy sets children play with, as they pretend to be little chefs cooking up a storm in their plastic ‘kitchens’.

creamery boutique tyrwhitt road

I’m not a big fan of the red velvet cream cheese lava cookie. The chocolate lava cookie is alright (one pal says it reminds him of chipsmore cookies). As for the ice cream, go ahead and ask to sample the flavors before you decide on one. I picked matcha eventually, as I’m a big fan of matcha. My pals thought it tasted too ‘green’ though I wondered what that could mean. The lychee ice cream is really good though. The folks at the table next to ours ordered separate scoops of lychee ice cream AFTER they had had their cookies + ice cream. It was that yummy, apparently.

Here’s the Creamery Boutique menu:

We’ve tried lava cakes, and lava cookies… so what’s next? Lava doughnuts?

Uncle Ringo @ Punggol MRT (till 25 June) What It Takes To Win The Plushies

Uncle Ringo Carnival 2017

It was our second visit to the Uncle Ringo Carnival at Punggol (next to the MRT station) yesterday, and the first time we played at those game stalls. Walked home with two plushies: a big Winnie The Pooh plush, and a medium-sized Minion one. We didn’t play or spend any money during the first visit because it was more of a ‘recce’ session: to check out which games offered the most attractive prizes, which were “easier” to win, and pick up some tips and tricks from the staff manning the stalls or simply by observing the people who were playing. I certainly didn’t want to walk home with an over-sized balloon as I don’t have a kid with me, so it would have been slightly embarrassing. I have no issues carrying a big plushie though! ๐Ÿ˜€

As you can see in the first picture above, there’s a game stall offering large Winnie The Pooh (in his usual outfit) plushies as prizes. You can pay $5 for 20 small rings, or $8 for a whole bucket of them and try to land them on one of the glass bottles. We “donated” $8 to this stall without receiving anything. I couldn’t figure out what was the technique required to land a prize. It seemed utterly random. People who managed to do it once (out of sheer luck) couldn’t seem to replicate their success. So I figured it’s a real heng / suay situation. Anyway, most of the games allow each player to win just one prize per day (from the same stall).

Uncle Ringo PunggolThis fun carnival will be at Punggol till 25 June so there’s plenty of time to practise!

My two new pals:

Uncle Ringo Prizes

When you’re there, look for the Tickets booth and purchase a pre-loaded $25 card. There’s no deposit involved. And you can make subsequent top-ups from as low as $1.

Uncle Ringo card

Won the Pooh bear at this stall on my 5th attempt. You get 3 tries for $5. Basically, you guide a small metal hoop down a rotating metal twirl without letting them touch. And apparently, there’s a certain switch behind the counter which the staff can either step on or flip (I guess) that means the buzzer won’t sound and you can easily guide the hoop till the end. I’m really not quite sure if I won this prize on my own or if I received some assistance (not that I’m complaining). Anyway, the trick is to not grip the instrument too tightly – just use thumb and forefinger; as if you’re sewing. And you have to move quickly (before the twirling gets you dizzy) and just focus on keeping the twirl in the middle of the hoop.

Uncle Ringo games

*I’m actually doing this post so I can remember the tips for the next time I visit an Uncle Ringo carnival. Haha!

Won this medium-sized Minion plush at this stall. You get a big plush toy if you land the ball on one of the BLUE spots. Mine landed on a red one. Apparently, the yellow spots get you a small toy. Land on any of the white ones and you won’t get a prize. The trick to winning here is to stand where the three blue spots are in a straight line in front of you – best chance of landing a big prize. Aim to land your ball in the middle of the play area. Don’t use too much force or the ball will just fly out of the play zone. You have 4 tries so it’s pretty easy to win a prize!

Uncle Ringo toys

This fishing game is probably one of the easiest to play. Magnets attached to the end of the rod will attract the metal pieces under the floating creatures. BUT it’s not that easy to win a prize. There are lots of stalls, all offering different prizes so go ahead and pick your favorite.

Uncle Ringo Amusement Park

There are game stalls with darts, cans you need to knock over, tubs you need to land balls in, etc. If the staff you meet are friendly, they might give you a hint or even do a demo to show you how to play the game and win. ๐Ÿ™‚ Because it’s no fun going home empty-handed, hopefully some of the hints in this post help you win a plushie!
