PM Lee’s son creates interactive map of ice cream outlets in Singapore
From one ice cream lover to others, the website includes various features to help find a flavour for every occasion.
As part of a “fun side project” of his own, Li Hongyi, the eldest son of PM Lee, has come up with a website of ice cream outlets in Singapore.
The website features an interactive map of every ice cream outlet known to him in Singapore, inclusive of his personal reviews and the location’s address, as well as Google Maps directions on how to get there.
The ice cream stores are sorted into four categories.
At the top of the list is “Crème De La Crème – Something extraordinary”. The stores listed here are Hongyi’s top personal favourites. One name under this category would be the Birds of Paradise Gelato Boutique, both the East Coast and Jewel Changi Airport outlets.
The second category is “Double Cream – Solid all around”, which includes stores with good ice cream, but not good enough to be “Something extraordinary”. Some places listed under this category include Cottontail Creamery at Serangoon and both Apiary outlets.
As its name suggests, the next category “Sweet Cream – Good for everyday” refers to ice cream places perfect for a daily dessert. Some places include every Creamier Handcrafted Ice Cream and Coffee outlet.
Finally, “Crème Fraîche – Not tradition ice cream” includes places good enough to satisfy a quick craving, such as the Tokyo Milk Cheese Factory and Chocolate Origin outlets.
Uncategorised ice cream shops are pinned in blue and mostly only include the shops’ opening hours and a Google Rating.
The website also includes a search function that allows users to search for specific ice cream shops, such as #openlate for those looking for an icy late-night snack or a sweet supper date.
Hongyi hopes that fellow ice cream lovers would be able to find this map useful and is also accepting feedback at email@example.com.
