Singapore: Along Orchard Road

I was pleasantly surprised by Singapore, as it was my first time there, hubby will argue 'til he's blue in the face that Malaysian food is better, but I greatly enjoyed the food in Singers, as well as the Designer-strewn Orchard Road (it seems there was an LV, Miu Miu, Prada, Chanel, Hermes store every few steps!):

Wish that ceramic piece were for sale!

Eating at Warung M Nasir, hubby was in heaven, our favourite was a vegetable curry made of tapioca leaves, we had never heard of it, but loved it.

Wish I had saved some room for those pineapple tarts...

Kaya toast - look at that huge slab of butter! What you cannot see is the incredible 'kaya' - delicious coconut spread, yuuummmmm...This was from the original Killiney Kopitiam.

Incredible architecture along Orchard Road.

Loved this peach/pear/sculpture outside the Armani store.

Crayfish laksa...*drool* this was sooooo goood!

Apologies for the blurry pic, but I thought I'd show you the Oak silk tunic I am wearing, as I love its shape. I had previously posted about it here, and simply adore the oversized sleeve and draped silhouette it gives.

A store that specialised in 'long yoke' - a sweet & savoury flattened ultra tasty piece of pork (or chicken)

It has been so long since I have posted an outfit pic, Lil J practised a few blogger poses when we got back to the hotel, just to show me how it's really done...


  1. Love the Orchard Road architecture and the peach sclupture they are so creative.

  10. hi brigs! any advice on lodging? where did you stay? and would you recommend it?

    1. Hi ajune! I stayed at the Holiday Inn, there are a few, but I can't remember the name of mine. I highly recommend it, service and room were great. It was off orchard rd, and next to several eateries..but somehow fairly quiet, good price. Hth!
