“So no one told you life’s gonna be this way…..”
From Joey's "Joey doesn't share his food...." to Ross's "We were on a break..." and from Janice's "Ohhh Myyyy Godddd...." to Phoebe's "Smelly cat..." we all grew up! Even after 27 years of F.R.I.E.N.D.S, one can watch it again and again and again. (I've watched it thrice!)
There are many things in F.R.I.E.N.D.S that no one can forget. Be it Monica's perfectly arranged apartment or Joey & Chandler's foosball table, which they had to break to save the duck and chicken. One more thing that's stuck in our minds is the CENTRAL PERK!
Do you remember that coffee shop with a huge orange couch; Gunther on the counter and endless scenes of the series, which were shot there? After F.R.I.E.N.D.S, everyone wishes to have a group of friends and a coffee shop like Central Perk.
Well, to fulfill the wishes of the people, there are various Central Perks around the globe. While most of them are the duplicates, the official ones are only in the United States. However, there's one more in Singapore. It is the only official Warner Brothers licensed Central Perk café outside of the United States.
Started in late 2016, this was like a dream come true for the people of Singapore.
A Guide to Central Perk Singapore
Whilst planning my Singapore visit, I stumbled upon an article, which mentioned the opening of the Central Perk in Singapore. Being a big foodie and F.R.I.E.N.D.S fan, I couldn't afford to miss this place.
I was so happy & excited to be at Central Perk. I visited it in the afternoon on a weekday and hence, it was almost empty with only a few people in the cafe. As you enter, you can see various setups from the show.
The list includes......
Monica's apartment, especially the kitchen,
