Serangoon NEX, doggiestyle

Rehearsals ended early today. Just as well, since bump-in madness begins next week.

The free time meant time for going somewhere fun.

Dasher’s dinner night!

Some star-gazing was in order.

Doggiestyle Cafe!

The cafe’s not very big (has about 12 tables that each seat about 4), so make reservations to avoid long waiting times.

You don’t have to own a dog to dine-in, but be prepared that dogs are allowed to roam the cafe (and most owners make good use of that)!

Someone took a fancy to Dasher, and insisted on following him everywhere. Even after we picked Dasher off the floor to give him a little breather 😛

Dasher’s dinner: Salmon bowl. Made with salmon, broccoli and carrots. It tasted quite good! I can only hope Dasher found it yummy too 🙂

The most amusing sight when dining in the cafe: onlookers watching from outside the doors.

Perhaps the most important thing to note if you’re planning to take your dog to NEX: the Pets Lift. Located next to Raffles Medical (a walk away from Wendy’s), these are the only lifts that dogs are allowed in. Alternatively, you can take the outdoors escalator that goes straight to the Sky Garden (escalator pictured above!). Dogs are only allowed in Pet Safari, Doggiestyle Cafe and K9 Park, not in any other part of the mall.

Though it felt good to be able to bring Dasher into the cafe and Pet Safari (to get hay for the guineas), NEX is far from pet-friendly. Many out-of-bounds exist when going about the mall with a dog, and directions are not quite clear (the Pets Lift brings you to all floors, but you can’t actually use most of them because it leads into the mall, where pets aren’t allowed).

On another note, it didn’t help that some people threw dirty looks at us dog-owners, just because we had dogs (it’s a dog, not a crocodile, for goodness sake!). But, ignorant humans aren’t NEX’s fault 😛

Still, it was a good day 🙂
