The Animal Resort
The Animal Resort is essentially a smaller, more rustic version of the Singapore Zoo. The difference, however, is that you get to feed all the animals here – and there are a lot of them. The Animal Resort is home to horses, poultry, goldfish, rabbits, guinea pigs and exotic birds like cassowaries (large, flightless birds that bear a passing resemblance to emus). You can’t rock up with stale bread to feed the critters, though. Feed has to be purchased at the rest stop before you go wild around the enclosures. And if you’ve got a birthday bash to plan, consider treating the kids to an encounter with nature at The Animal Resort.
The Seletar Mall
Cool off at The Seletar Mall, it's the closest shopping centre to Seletar Aerospace Park. There are numerous eateries including Song Fa Bak Kut Teh, Sensai Yakitori and Pizza Hut. You can also stock up on groceries at the 24-hour Fairprice Finest, or watch a movie at Shaw Theatres.
Hands up if you fear unshapely eyebrows. Put to rest those jitters by heading to Erabelle – its relaxing Japanese-inspired decor, and cred with the local influencer crowd will soothe even the antsiest of us. Head to any one of its four themed outlets (Seletar Mall, Eastpoint Mall, Orchard Visioncrest and VivoCity) where beauty addicts can knock themselves out with the huge variety of facials, as well as eyeliner and lip colour embroidery. But where Erabelle really shines is in its brow services. No harsh Crayon Shin-chan arches or weird blue-green brows here. Mineral and organic pigments are layered on your brows and a special in-house shading technique is used for a soft, natural look. And whether you’re looking for a simple design ($50/20mins), full-fledged embroidery or even a special sesh for the guys (Erabrow Men’s Trim, $80/20mins), the artists are all trained for at least a year to analyse your features and design a complementing eyebrow shape. Bonus points: if you’ve had a bad brow experience, the Erabrowlogy Redesign treatment ($1,690.60 for five sessions) is a lifesaver. It rectifies previous brow colour and shape, all without laser removal.
