My Stay-cation, A Day As A Tourist In Singapore.

May 19, 2011

It was a great day this Tuesday.

My friend’s Korean colleagues were here to visit and we were their guides for a day (or at least we tried to be good ones :P).

We first brought them to Chinatown for some ‘dim-sum’ – Chinese dishes that are served in small portions, which can be very filling. Then we flagged down a cab to Orchard for some SHOPPING! The Koreans love Charles & Keith. 😉

After shopping, we headed to Marina Bay Sands’ Skypark, up above the world at the 56th floor. I loved the view here. It was also my first time up there. Thank God for a glorious sky with no rain.

We then walked to the Esplanade (worked up a huge appetite by this time) for some seafood at ‘No Signboard Seafood.’ Yummy food I tell you – although a tad expensive.

And you thought we had enough to eat? We headed to the basement of Raffles City for some Hong Kong dessert! Durian mua-ji (bouncy textured skin wrapped over durian) and Mango-sago with ice. Yums.

Goodbyes, back to the hotel, back to life. Hope to head to Korea soon to see Hye Yong and Sun Yong! Take care ladies.

Hope you enjoy the photos below; click on them for a close up view. 🙂

Who Says One Cannot Eat Ice Cream During Winter?

September 11, 2008

This has got to be one of the best ice cream eateries in New York City’s Chinatown in terms of its variety of flavours. We were freezing but some things were not to be missed – good ice cream during winter included!

I think these smiling kids think so too. They’re both so incredibly adorable! Of course, I had asked for permission from their parents before I took this shot. 🙂 

Tang Yuan (汤圆).

I had these delicious peanut-filled Tang Yuan at Chinatown with my boyfriend a while ago.

Although I just had an extremely good dinner, I am still craving for this right now. Oh man!
