Steps:

  1. Warm 60ml of soya milk in the microwave or in a small pan over medium-high heat.
  2. Place the flax meal in a bowl, add the warmed milk, stir well, and set aside.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk the apple cider vinegar into the remaining soya milk and set aside to thicken and curdle.
  4. In another small bowl, mash the banana with the brown sugar, vanilla extract, and maple syrup.
  5. Whisk in the flax mixture, curdled soya milk into the banana mixture and blend well.
  6. In a medium bowl, whisk together the wholemeal flour, buckwheat flour, salt, baking powder, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Stir in the wet ingredients until just combined and fold in the nuts (optional). The mixture should have a thick consistency.
  7. Heat a frying pan or a cast iron griddle over medium-high heat until a drop of water sizzles and evaporates immediately.
  8. Lightly oil the griddle and drop scoops of batter to your liking. Cook until bubbles form on the surface of the pancakes. Carefully flip the pancakes and cook further for about 1.5 mins. Grease the pan a little between each batch to prevent sticking.
  9. Serve the pancakes with maple syrup and berries (optional)

This post goes out to all those who are self-employed, office-free, freelancers as well as those who just need to get out of the office for a while. The heart of the CBD has a ton of cafes and restaurants that seem ideal for work as they provide free WiFi.

Wi-Fi(/ˈwaɪfaɪ/) -- is a method for devices such as smartphones to connect wirelessly to the Internet using radio waves and something most of us can't live without.

This guide is ideal for those who are based in the Clarke Quay, Tanjong Pagar areas as well as Chinatown in Singapore. However, how many of these cafes are really are going to be okay with you just taking up space, using their WiFi and free loading off their power sockets to charge your computer? Crucial indeed, because I've had my fair share of being kicked out of a cafe for sitting there too long. I mean, I guess it's fine if it was a coffee joint but cafes have a way better quiet working environment that I found extra amazing especially when I was studying in high school as a student. Wow, typing this makes me miss university already, and I can't wait to be back in school in the next couple of weeks.

Shop Wonderland Cafe

The first cafe, and also one of my personal favourites is Shop Wonderland.

With the upper floor selling fresh flowers for whatever occasion, should you want to make someone special smile, and the lower floor serving food, drinks and comfy seats!

Lunar Coffee Brewers

Great for a quick coffee and a long sit-down catch-up session in my opinion.

Apart from their hip-and-cool hexagon flower pots and gradient walls, the soft serve, coffee and the rice-bowls here are a must try.

Address: 6 Shenton Way, 01-49 OUE Downtown Gallery 2, Singapore 068809

My Awesome Cafe

A historical shophouse in Singapore, turned into what many would call a "hipster"  cafe.

Hard to believe that this place used to be a hospital back in the day. They are known for their east-meets-west cuisine. A great place to chill and grab a cuppa with your laptop.

Clubhouse

Come and lounge around at clubhouse's sofa and pod areas which are amazing for group discussions and meetings. 

Image cred: Clubhouse website

Their funky furniture should keep you extra motivated and on task or... tempt you for some shut eye during lunch hour.

Address: China Street #01-35 China Court, Singapore 048422
