Uncle Leong Seafood

First founded in a neighbourhood coffeeshop amidst the friendly Ang Mo Kio estate, the ever-popular Uncle Leong Seafood has now heightened into a full-fledged restaurant at Punggol End. Still keeping its modesty, Uncle Leong Seafood serves up the day's first dish as they do daily; at 4.30pm sharp and very delicious.

Uncle leong Seafood is the one of THE places to go for crab, based on the signature recipe that has drawn a keen following since the first public taste in 2002. Today, Uncle Leong Seafood welcomes a daily haul of customers comprising both locals and foreigners.

“Shimmering Sand Crab delight”, Uncle Leong’s wonderful signature dish, is a mouthful, but a tasty one!

Punggol ecotown to testbed energy solutions for public housing

SINGAPORE: One block of public housing in Singapore's Punggol eco-town will be a test-bed for environmentally-friendly energy solutions.

The project is a collaboration between Japanese electronics giant Panasonic and government agencies - the Housing and Development Board, the Economic Development Board and the Energy Market Authority.

It aims to get 10 households in the block of HDB flats to participate and may include more homes later.

An integrated energy system will help families reduce their carbon footprint and utilities bill.

Energy-producing solar panels will be fitted on the block of flats and these will power lifts and lighting during the day.

Excess electricity generated by the solar panels can be stored in batteries, which households can tap on for energy at night. This potentially means zero emissions being generated in powering an entire housing block.
