Some of you may have visited Mandi Manda and noticed some 'changes' recently. You may have passed thru the cafe and noticed the word S A V V A on the wall. Some of you were curious and asked what's it about. We explained to some of you directly but for the benefit of every curious guests we'll explain a little more in detail about SAVVA.

Its the new name of our little cafe. We always thought of giving a name to our cafe. Its comes from the word 'SAVOUR' meaning taste, relish and enjoy.I just played around the spelling of the word to come up with SAVVA. The cafe has been there since our opening. I have always thought a cafe is an important aspect in a sauna.
Our guests spend considerable amount of time in our establishment. 2-3 hours mostly. Some a lot more. We believe there's a need for a quiet place to relax and take a break from the intense activities that many are here for. Its also a place for two souls who met in darker corners and decides get to know each other and they have a place to sit down and explore possiblities.

Some may feel famished and SAVVA will have warm food ready to serve our hungry guests. I dare not say we serve the best food but I believe the food served at SAVVA is tasty enough for some of you that you wanted to bring it home. Yes we have many guests who pack food home. We wish to thank our guests who have complimented about our food and continued to patronise the cafe.

For many of us with Chinese New Year just around the bend, making the trip back home can be a dreaded event especially for those who is going home to face the congregation of father, mother, grandparents, aunties, married cousins, nosy neighbours and the yee mahs and koo chays. We all face the inevitable question of when we're gonna get married every time we present ourselves back home. With so many concerned relatives asking us about our single lives its like facing the firing squad.

However if you wish to avoid the inevitable rounds of questioning, stay back in the city and celebrate with your other family, I am sure the local boys will happily accommodate you.

And if you're bored you can still drop by Mandi Manda. We are open throughout the Chinese New Year period. In fact we are open 365. From 14th February - 21st February, 2010 we will open at 2.00pm everyday.

We wishes everyone A Happy & Prosperous New Year. GONG XI FA CAI!
