Pic of the week; Singapore Healthcare

Hospital EditedSingapore’s hospitals & public clinics… They are like a cross between that scene in Lost In Translation & waiting in line with a number at a Tesco cheese counter. Behind their facade of modernity, lies the obsession that’s engrained in every single walk of life here; your RACE?

There’s 100 things I love about this city, but there’s a handful of fundamentals that I don’t. I ask you; What does my ‘other’ race have to do with healthcare Singapore?!

Sapporo Beer. Gourmet Burgers.  Edamame Beans. It’s a scrumptious farmers market – Asia style! PasaeBella and friends go to town is on 7th – 30th March. You can even nibble your cheese and wine whilst basking in the light projections of the city skyline –  all part of ilight Marina Bay Festival 2014.

Training Shed, Labrador Park…

After 19 months of living here, I finally shake my ass down to much hyped Sunday session – Training Shed. Run by uber-cool event company Sideshow, their once-monthly party is hidden off the beaten track in a forest beer garden 1k down Port Road. It’s a little like an English garden fate meets African bongo club.  Amazingly for this level of diversity – it’s a) free! and b) in Singapore!

From 3pm to dusk there’s a nice family vibe with hippy toddlers playing with their crayons on blackboard graffiti boards. After dark the guest DJ’s turn to bongo percussion & salsa mixes. If you get tired of the dance floor there’s overpriced food ($14 a hotdog) yet ok-priced beer ($8 Archipelago.) Go figure. Best of all, it all wraps up for 10pm to keep a perfectly mellow (non-hangover!) Sunday.

Pic of the week; W Hotel Sentosa

Afternoon Tea Sentosa Style at W hotel's Drop The T @ Woo Bar. $68 for a birdcage for x2 people with freeflow tea 3pm - 5pm.

Funky afternoon tea at the W Hotel’s chic WooBar. The trip out to Sentosa Cove s worth it for a scrumptious ‘birdcage’ of passion fruit compote scones & savory cheese nibbles. Drop The T is $68 ++ for a cage for x2 people with freeflow Dilmah tea 3pm – 5pm.

Pic of the week: I heart my bike

Sunday at dusk makes for the perfect evening bike adventure along the Whampoa & Kallang River. Suburban HDB’s, the intriguingly abandoned old Kallang Airport, and even an aspiring tightrope artist practicing at sunset. I’m looking forward to my new neighborhood already…

An.an.tas.in : The Anantasin is the name of a shipwreck just of the coast of the Sensi Parasise, Mae Haad Bay, Koh Tao, Thailand. It’s one of my many favorite places.

Lit.tle: Just because it’s cute.
