Eat Fit Food | Cleanse program | Day 2

Click here for Day 1 of my Eat Fit Food journey. Even though I went to bed quite late last night, I woke up at 5AM feeling energised and ready to start my day.

This year’s food stalls include Gazi, Blue Bonnet Barbecue, Ruyi, Mamasita, Pidapipo and Candy Man Espresso.
