Recreate your favourite holiday breakfast with this tasty French toast recipe.

Hands On!

Classic French Toast

After each holiday trip, I dream of waking up to some buffet breakfast favourites such as French toast, scrambled eggs and grilled tomatoes. Alas my dream is often what it is as I usually rush off to work and grab a bun for breakfast instead.

So I decided to wake up slightly earlier than usual one Sunday to try out a French toast recipe I found online. Turns out it is pretty simple to do. 🙂

Ingredients (for 4 servings)

6 slices white bread (you can experiment with other types of bread too)
1 egg
1/4 cup low-fat milk
1/2 cap vanilla essence
1 tbsp sugar (you can substitute this with natural sweeteners)
A pinch of salt
1 banana (optional)
Sugar-free maple syrup (optional)


1. Get a flat bowl or container and pour in the 1/4 cup of milk.

2. Next add the egg and give it a light whisk. Then pour the 1/2 cup vanilla extract.

3. Add 1 tablespoon sugar and a pinch of salt and mix them till they dissolve in the mixture.

4. Heat a non-stick griddle or pan over low to medium heat.

5. Grease the griddle with a little bit of butter.

6. Dip 1 slice of bread into the mixture and coat it well on each side.

7. Place the slice on the griddle and let it cook for 3 minutes on each side.

8. Once done, you can cut the slices into halves and serve them with some fruit and a drizzle of maple syrup.

So there you go – no need to spend big bucks at a restaurant to recreate that holiday mood. Do it at home and you can tweak the recipe to your needs!

Out and About

Our Heartland Trails: Punggol Edition

Singapore’s first Eco-Town is filled with a myriad of attractions, scenic and historic spots. Now you can go on an adventure around Punggol with Our Heartland Trails smartphone App!

Before leaving home, download the App first using Wi-Fi, as you would need to load the Trail data files within the App as well. The download is nearly 50MB, so use this tip to save on your mobile data usage.

Once you arrive at Punggol, you can use the App to find interesting places around you, and make use of the built-in wayfinding features to plan your trip. Punggol is designed with a cycling network, so you might want to grab a bike to get around quicker. The App would suggest cycling routes as well!

Here is our suggested itinerary:

Head all the way North-west to the Jewel Bridge, as this scenic point is the furthest away from Punggol Central. The bridge’s iconic ‘Jewel’ is a popular spot for Instagrammers. Also, remember to take the stairs down for a closer look at the unique Floating Wetlands!

As you make your way back to Punggol Central, check out this curious mural of Robots in Love below a bridge.

At Punggol Central, there are numerous hotspots, such as the SkyGardens at the Waterway Terraces, and Waterway Point mall.

Step inside the Punggol Discovery Cube to learn more about Punggol’s history and glimpse into this town’s exciting new developments!

The East side of Punggol’s Waterway is a meandering path between new housing developments, unique bridges and recreational facilities.

End your adventure with some good food in @Punggol, while enjoying the soothing views of Serangoon reservoir along the Riverside Walk.

Remember to upload your photos of Punggol online, and tag us (@mynicehome) so that we can share your lovely shots! Feel free to also send us your photos at mynicehome@mailbox.hdb.gov.sg
