Hotel Jen Orchard Gateway, Singapore

In the busy commercial district of Orchard Road in Singapore, hotels are a dime a dozen. But I bet none of them can offer the comfy, home-away-from-home feeling like how Hotel Jen does. Tucked within the Orchard Gateway shopping center, the lobby is accessible via lift to the 8th floor – but fret not, as…

J65 Restaurant, Hotel Jen Tanglin Singapore

My recent stay at Hotel Jen Tanglin Singapore included a scrumptious buffet dinner at it’s J65 Restaurant. It. Was. Awesome. Especially if you love seafood, like me :D That’s coz the resto has a rotating menu featuring a different main ingredient as its star every day. Mondays are for crabs, Tuesdays are for beef, Thursdays…

Review: Hotel Jen Tanglin, Singapore

Hey, guys! So late last October, I got to do a review of Hotel Jen Tanglin, Singapore –  but since it was for work, I couldn’t put this up on my blog until our December issue was published. It was hard waiting, since I LOVED the stay and couldn’t wait to share the experience. :) Owned by…

Nightlife @ Clark Quay, Singapore

Friends know that I’m somewhat of a Cinderella when it comes to hanging out past bedtime, coz I’m usually home by 12am. Never been much of a drinker (due to my ridiculously low tolerance to alcohol). Plus it’s not much fun to stay out late when all your friends get woozy on the dance floor…

Fika Swedish Cafe and Bistro, Singapore

What are the odds of returning to the exact same restaurant, out of hundreds of similar outlets, on two different (and unrelated) occasions? When my recent media trip brought us to Fika Swedish Cafe and Bistro for lunch, I was like… wait a minute. This place looks awfully familiar. Then it hit me: I was…

Thian Hock Keng Temple @ Chinatown, Singapore

Singapore has a significant Chinese population (74%). Long ago, when the first Chinese immigrants arrived on the island republic with nothing to their names but hopes and dreams, Chinatown was the epicentre of everything. Today, it spans several blocks within the Outram district and houses numerous heritgae sites and old buildings – an important reminder…

National Design Center, Singapore

Hey guys! I was in Singapore recently for a hotel review, but I can’t blog about it yet (it’s embargoed until December, when my article is published for work). What I CAN write about, though, is the places we went to visit during our stay. One of these is the National Design Center in the…

Esplanade / Merlion, Singapore

We continue where we left off at the Asian Civilisation Museum, in Singapore’s commercial district! Located just opposite the museum is the Singapore River, which has a neat little bridge crossing over to the other side. Cavenagh Bridge is one of the oldest bridges in the country still existing in its original form since the…
