Coming Soon: Laduree Singapore

Macaron lovers rejoice!  Say “HALLELUJAH!” that Laduree is coming to town. Yep you got that right.  Laduree is actually setting up more branches in Asia.  By next year, we’ll see that mecca in Hong Kong and “along Orchard” perhaps within the area of it’s sister company, Paul Bakery.  Well I know it’s still pretty vague … Continue reading

Club Street Social

A few weeks ago our good friend and fellow foodie Adrienne was in town for a few days.  We badly need to catch up since that last time Bob and I saw her was during our trip to Kapalai with her bf and Bob’s best bud, Jose. I guess foodies will be foodies.  Prior to seeing … Continue reading

Zafferano, Collyer Quay

Bob and I always find ourselves stumbling upon hidden gastronomic gems here in Singapore.  It would always start out either me (or him) picking him (or me) up after work and we would then be wandering around the city because, for one we are hungry and second, we still don’t want to go home.  Such … Continue reading

Social Scene in Jakarta

I’ve always thought that Jakarta is far behind in the club and bar scene industry, thinking since that it’s predominantly a Muslim country which are strict and conservative by religion. Also, as what I have heard from my friends also who are locals, the english language is not advocated in the city.  Tourists like me … Continue reading

Salt Grill and Sky Bar, ION

Here in Singapore, there’s this culinary jewel that offers a great view of the city and a “Mod Oz” cuisine. This restaurant that I’m talking about is Salt Grill and Sky Bar by Australia’s renowned chef, Luke Mangan.  It is perched on top of ION Orchard which is located in the heart of the town. … Continue reading

T-bowl, Kuala Lumpur

As we speak, the restaurant industry is getting more and more exciting.  Someone out there is about to sign the lease for a restaurant space perhaps on the ship that takes you to the moon.  Probably someone is baking the most humongous and decadent chocolate cake you have ever imagined, 30 layers perhaps?!  Serve you … Continue reading

SkyBar, Traders Hotel

You’ve never fully visited Kuala Lumpur if you didn’t have drinks at SkyBar.  Nestled on the 33rd floor of Traders Hotel, it is a facility with a lap pool by day and transforms into a chic watering hole at night.  It has an amazing view of the city and the iconic Petronas Towers. We got … Continue reading

Mandarin Grill, Kuala Lumpur

As if the birthday surprise trip to KL wasn’t great enough, Bob made dinner reservations at Mandarin Grill. This contemporary modern restaurant is located at Mandarin Oriental, just a few minutes walk from the famed Petronas Towers. Our reservation was at 7:00 pm and we were the first diners that they were expecting. We were … Continue reading

Wong Ah Wah Restaurant, Jalan Alor, KL

For 3 days I was off to another adventure with Bob and this time around was in Kuala Lumpur.  I’ve never visited KL,  (I don’t count my previous “stop over” at the airport as one)  so imagine how stoked I was when I learned we are going there.  It was a birthday surprise Bob carefully … Continue reading

DOZO, River Valley Rd.

To the moms, mama, mamita, hot momma and mom to be, belated Happy Mother’s Day! I do hope that you were treated like a queen on that special day. I was invited to join Bob‘s family lunch at Dozo for their Mother’s Day celebrations. Their family is a huge fan of Japanese cuisine and I … Continue reading
