Does it sound like a dream marathon to run from one farm after another in Singapore??
Dream no more as the first “Farm Race” powered by The Performance Series #5 is happening right here at the Kranji Countryside next Sunday, 18th Dec 2016!
Participants can anticipate lush forestry and farmlands as a beautiful backdrop and perhaps some resident dogs of the countryside to run alongside. For the participants, some sweet deals await you!
JFF partners the run organisers to bring you a good promotion on our newest anti mozzie, beauty product- Collagreen Mosquito Repelling Moisturising Lotion Fortified with Bioactive Collagen. This is a product that PROTECTS, HYDRATES and MOISTURISE at the same time and keeps out mosquito bites and stings! Best part of the story, don’t worry about the sweat washing out the essence of this lotion. Our bioactive collagen has strong binding properties to your skin giving you that UV protection and skin hydration, without clogging your pores, while you sweat and do what you got to do!
Per 100ml bottle: $18 or 2 bottles for $30
Not only that, fancy a nice cold dessert after the race – Health and beauty benefits aside? We will be selling our popular Traditional Royal Hashima Dessert exclusively for all participants at only $5/bowl at the end point!
The icing on the cake – Hop on the free shuttle for the farm visits after race! We’ll be looking forward to seeing you at the Kranji Countryside in another week or so!
JFF will be participating in Kranji Countryside Farmers’ Market for the 2nd time, and this time, we’ll have new activities for kids (or even adults) @ The Kids Corner, an ongoing online photo contest, and there will be a new food item added to our EXOTIC menu!! The Farmers’ Market will be held at Gardenasia (Nyee Phoe), and there will be a shuttle bus from Yew Tee MRT (bus stop) that goes directly there at timed intervals (timings will be shown in the bus schedule below). It will be $2 for a two-way trip there and back (cash collection upon arrival), and free rides for children below 12 years old and seniors above 60 years old. A KCFM volunteer will be stationed at the bus stop holding the Farmers’ Market poster, so gather around that area to board the bus! If you’re travelling by car or any other form of transport, please refer to this website for the exact location of Gardenasia.
This is the list of our products and food items and the promotions. Our new food item on the menu will be the venison satay, so be sure to try it WHILE STOCKS LAST!!

The participant has to group the different stages of frogs into the tanks provided in the correct order within a minute. ‘Tadpole without hindlegs/forearms’ will be the first stage and ‘Froglet’ will be the last.

Our next activity is the online photo contest which we call ‘Eat It Like You Own It’. To participate, take a photo of your best expression while eating one of our frog/crocodile meat skewers or venison satays, then post it on Instagram or our Facebook wall and be sure to hashtag both ‘#eatitlikeyouownit‘ & ‘#jurongfrogfarm‘. The photo with the most number of likes will stand to win a mystery gift, so be sure to get all your friends to like your photo after posting it up!!

4th day of snow jelly trial and no pimples in sight despite my lousy eating habits these days! Great news!
Yesterday KY watsapped me as she was confused by my previous postings about the handling of the snow jelly. Would like to clarify here that the dried snow jelly itself is already cooked by heating and naturally preserved by drying. To use the snow jelly as a ready to use ingredient, you will have to soak the dried sj in water first overnight, boil it to sterilize this ingredient for at least 15 mins. You may break up the pieces into smaller morsels with a fork. Take note that sj is fully expanded when it is translucent and if your sj looks opaque, u r not using it to the full capacity!
KY n I also kinda concluded that the recipe on Day 2 probably works better with warm milk. She even offered another recipe with Almond paste which I’ll def experiment soon. as today is my off day I am quite reluctant to cook. So I’m offering this recipe which the product we are also selling at the farm. The inspiration of this recipe came after a visit to a friends Chinese restaurant which serves up jelly in champagne flutes! adding some collagen to it should be complimentary to both the taste n nutritional value!
1. Boil chrysanthemum flowers for 10 mins to 2.5L of water.
2. Sieve out the flowers n residues.
3. Add in Soaked Snow Jelly, wolf berries, red dates n ginseng to the boiling chrysanthemum tea. Put to boil for another 25 minutes
5. Lastly, add in 1 packet of Konnyaku jelly powder (some of these packaging comes with sugar in it! if not use the amount of sugar as recommended on the pakaging)
6. Off the fire when the mixture starts to boil. Continue stirring until the powder is completely dissolved in the mixture.
7. Pour it into the moulds when the concoction is less hot. The boiled Chrysanthemum flowers may be added into the moulds as edible garnish.
8. Serve chilled!
You can see how much ‘love’ goes into the making of this product. It is absolutely delicious!! However for some of you non-cooks out there, I would recommend visiting us at the farm n buying this cooked product from the Royal Frog Shop to get an instant fix!
