Staycation 2015 @Orchard Road

It was a very festive long weekend for us, and we decided to do a staycation for our celebrations 🙂

Hubby was on Far East Hospitality mailing list and they sent him a birthday deal which upgraded us to a Club Room with club privileges (at deluxe room price) and lots of freebies (like 2hrs lounge usage at Changi Airport which could come in handy for our trips later in the year!!). Being on the club level means we can enjoy the Club Lounge which serves breakfast, afternoon snacks, pre-dinner snacks and unlimited coffee and tea! We literally just sat in the lounge most of the time since the PSI was climbing like no one’s business (until MOE had to declare no-school on Friday!).

Day 1 (24 Sep): Check in at Orchard Parade Hotel, went for complimentary hop-on-and-off ride, went Everton Park (Batterworks and Just Want Coffee), lunch at Teng Bespoke Japanese Vegetarian Dining @Sunshine Plaza, tea break at Curious Platette @Prinsep Street, visit to National Museum, nua at Club Lounge in hotel, dinner at Akanoya Robatayaki.

Day 2 (25 Sep): Woke up late and had breakfast in hotel, lunch at I Want My Noodle, nua at Club Lounge in hotel, attend Wedding Dinner in Tunglok Signatures

Day 3 (26 Sep): Woke up late and had breakfast in hotel, check-out at 4pm

  • Orchard Parade Hotel: Not bad a location for staycation. And the club level provides a very nice environment to escape from the haze!

Tiong Bahru Heritage Trail

We finally embarked on the Tiong Bahru Heritage Trail! We have been wanting to go on this trail but couldn’t find the time. So on this beautiful Saturday, we managed to squeeze out a day of fun!

This is part of a series of Heritage Trails by National Heritage Board. The Heritage Trails are part of the NHB’s on-going efforts to document and promote the different areas that Singaporeans live, work and play. Many of these areas have rich historical or social memories that we may not be aware of. In developing the trails, NHB works with the respective communities, the schools within the community and the private sector, to document their community’s heritage for posterity.

Chef On Wheels @Singapore Night Festival

It’s our first time to the Singapore Night Festival (SNF)!

The areas were spread between Dhoby Ghaut and Cityhall MRT stations, so we decided to get off at Cityhall MRT and made our way up. We first walked past a street of food stalls, abit like a upmarket pasar malam, where food prices were very upmarket too 😛 Nothing caught our fancy, and it was also quite quiet… so we decided to continue on, hoping for better food options, while quietly keeping a lookout for restaurants along the way… haha!
