Adopt Don’t Shop

Join us this Saturday afternoon (20th May 1-5pm) for our first ever dog adoption drive! Meet rescued dogs who are waiting to be taken to a forever home.

Benefits of adopting a dog:
· unconditional love
· having someone who is truly madly deeply happy to see you every day
· dog kisses
· dog hugs
· improved fitness from daily walks and/or runs
· improved social life from making new friends with other doggies & dog owners
· did we mention unconditional love?

We will have a handful of dogs for you to meet, and each one of them is about 3-4 years old.

These are all abandoned and rescued dogs currently being fostered by volunteers at Joyous bArk.

May 20th from 1pm-5pm

Learn to make your own Mandalas from scratch on May 7th

manntraco mandala workshop

Last updated on May 2, 2017

Come join us at The Garden Slug (May 7th at 10am or May 21st at 10am) for this two-hour workshop.

Mandalas are increasingly being used as an art therapy resource, evidenced by the countless mandala-themed colouring books you see everywhere.
Instead of buying a colouring book – come join us and learn how to make YOUR OWN mandala this weekend.

Doodlers, dreamers, or those seeking to rearrange your inner lives… all are welcome!

It’s actually really easy to learn and design mandalas on your own. Why colour in someone else’s computer-generated artwork, when you can create by hand something that fully expresses your self?
It will be akin to your signature or thumbprint, only in the form of the most beautiful diagrams.

All you have to do at this workshop is learn a few different styles and patterns, that can be mixed and matched, to create a brand new mandala of your own. You’ll be a bona fide MandalaMeister™ right before lunchtime rolls around.

The mandala creation process is SO soothing… almost meditative. Allows me to access deeper levels of conscience. —Sara W., mother of 3

 

Soon this became a daily habit & helped me stabilise, integrate & re-order my inner life! —SY Tan, fintech developer

 

If you’re a designer, artist, or art therapist, this is a whole new realm that could open up a lot of new business. You can get in on the ground floor of this.

Lemme ask you something.

Do you….
Hate taking part in dumbass quizzes?
Loathe giving out your email address, ’coz you know it’s only gonna result in us sending you more dumbass quizzes??
LOVE our artery-clogging 3 Little Pigs and wish you could be rewarded with something than just calories & guilt every time you devour it??? (perhaps something “intellectually”-rewarding that’s made of….hmm…. dead trees, maybe?)

If you answered YES to all of the above, then do this:

1.) From today until Sunday (30.4.2017), order your favourite hangover-curing Three Little Pigs on Deliveroo, Foodpanda, UberEats, Honestbee, or WhatToEat.

2.) On your delivery order’s “Comments” / “Allergy notes” / “Instructions” section, or wherever they might allow you to write something — make sure you type in or copy & paste this code-phrase:

I’ve ordered a 3LP and I want to win a 3LPLah storybook!

That’s it! As easy as 1 – 2 – 3 Little Pigs! (see what I did there…*snorts*)

Every order entitles you a chance to win a brand new copy of “The Three Little Pigs Lah” storybook by Casey Chen. Every day, five winners are picked and the prize is immediately packed together with your delivery order!

There’s no limit to how many times you can enter this lucky draw. As long as you

b.) enter the magic words in the Instructions/comments box,
you can stand to win again!
What this means is that the MORE you order… the BETTER your chances.

If you already get food delivered regularly, then wah, bonus lor!

Like Sondra P., one of Monday’s five winners, who sent us a pic and wrote:

The Three Little Pigs “Lah” is totally LOL! Enjoyed flipping thru the pages while huffing & puffing over my 3Little Pigs late dinner… after the kids went to bed, of course. P/S- I will gift it to them once they turn 18! Ha haaa!

So, because this Sondra P. pecah lubang, now errone knows that other than a Singlish story book, lucky winners get a little bonus gift as well.

Yes, I meant the handwritten letter la… (how RARE is that in 2017, dude??). The $10 gift card is just a by-the-way thing, pfffft.

My stupid friend asked me:
”Hey you Big Fat Lazy Slug… whatcha doing this weekend… SLUGGING OUT?? hahaha…”

IMMEDIATELY I did two things:
1.) I slapped him in the mouth
2.) Replied, ”I’m working a 12-hour shift dumbass. And when I have a spare minute, imma crawl into the storeroom under the staircase and count how many storybooks I overstocked last month.”

This Fat Slug may not know what a ”Diet” is but I sure as hell know how to over-order. And that includes books, too, apparently [eyeroll emoji]

Let’s cut to the chase, Young Slug-ling. After all, you’ve only set aside 45 seconds to skim this. Help me find a good home for these brand new storybooks before Cowboy uses them as bedding and/or a scratch-post.


I want to give away a special book called ’The Three Little Pigs Lah”!

This is a book that’s close to our cholesterol-filled hearts. Because it involves talking animals, drama and tragedy that would put any Korean tv series to shame. Plus, it’s written in full-on Singlish!

But Sluggieeeeeee… that’s hardly a giveaway worthy of my 45 seconds!” you annoyingly retort..

For starters, the winner of this giveaway will receive 1 x signed copy of ”The Three Little Pigs Lah” storybook AND a voucher for 2 x Three Little Pigs (yes, that awesome breakfast dish).

I can already hear you starting to whine: ”But but but that makes it 9 Little Pigs! You are misleading your customers!”

I hear you Young Slug-ling. You’re correct… and your P1 Math teacher will be very proud.

Hmmm… well it juuusssttt soooo happeeennnnss this Fat Slug over-stocked a grand total of 37 copies of ”The Three Little Pigs Lah”… *winces*

OK, pay attention.

This giveaway is two parts:
PART 1.) Where there can be only one…

…winner of the signed copy and 3LP dine-in vouchers. Participate by answering a simple question below (scroll alllll the way down), and voila! You’ll the know the result by Mon 24 Apr 2017, 3:00pm.

PART 2.) is for those who answer YES to the following 3 questions:
✔ Hate taking part in dumbass quizzes?
✔✔ Loathe giving out your email address, ’coz you know it’s only gonna result in me sending you more stupid quizzes like this??
✔✔✔ LOVE our 3 Little Pigs and wish you could be rewarded with something MORE than just calories & guilt every time you order it??? (like, dead trees?)

Then do this:
From 24th-30th Apr 2017, order our 3 Little Pigs on Deliveroo, Foodpanda, UberEats, Honestbee, or WhatToEat. Every order entitles you a chance to win a brand new copy of ”The Three Little Pigs Lah” storybook by Casey Chen.

And! On your delivery order’s ”Comments” / ”Allergy notes” / ”Instructions” section, or wherever they might allow you to write something — make sure you copy & paste this code-phrase:

I’ve ordered a 3LP and I want to win a 3LPLah storybook!

We’ll pick a few winners each day and pack the book together with the delivery order! And we’ll keep doing it every day from 24-30 April or until we run out 🙂

There’s no limit to how many times you can enter this lucky book draw. As long as you
a.) order a 3LP via delivery
b.) enter the magic words in the Instructions/comments box
you can stand to win again!
What this means is that the MORE you order… the BETTER your chances.

So it’s come down to this…

You’re staring indecision in the face (kinda like that ”Blue Pill vs Red Pill” scene in The Matrix.)…
To try for PART 1 or PART 2 of this porky giveaway?

Well, guess what. PLOT TWIST! Bet nobody told you you could have BOTH the Blue Pill AND the Red Pill, right?? Nyahaha! If you swallow ’em both you turn into a purple cow. OK nvm, we digress.

Anyhoo… yes, you can participate in both. For PART 1: You may enter once, although, you may share as many times as you like. Each share or referral begets you another 3 entries! For PART 2: enter as many times as you wish.
All the best, Young Slug-ling!

Sincerely,
The Chief Slug

P.S. This book is soldoutalmosteverywhere. This makes it a precious collectible!

P.P.S. If you are parenting a youngling, this book may not be suitable for children. If you don’t want them cussing in Singlish, hide it from them! Or pray that you won’t win!!
