Saturday Spanish Alcohol and Food Buffet at Sentidos

I’ve always walked past Sentidos at the Starhill gallery but never had the chance to visit the place. Now, with their current “Live the Life” promotion going on, i.e. Viva la Vida, I could hardly resist the opportunity to check out its Spanish Tapas. Viva La Vida occurs every Saturday night (8-10pm) and it’s a […]

Robata Monkey @ Jaya 1

Ramen, Sushi Bars or Yakitori joints, are all well established in the average gourmet’s Japanese food vocabulary, but robatayaki, well that’s another one altogether. So where can one go, to fill up on tasty meats, seafood and vegetable dishes served fresh off the grill? Where small portions of meat, fish or vegetables are slow-grilled to […]

Oktoberfest @ The Saujana Hotel Kuala Lumpur

October is definitely one of the months I look forward to, simply because it is a beer guzzling month! Oktoberfest was in full swing at the RP Entertainment Centre (The Saujana Hotel Kuala Lumpur) yet again this year with even more traditional German music, bratwurst and steins of beer. This was a rocking Carlsberg event, […]

A Grand Stay at the Grand Hyatt Singapore

The Grand Hyatt Singapore. Finally, we have arrived! I always say that this is one of the most fabulous hotels to stay at, simply because one can roll out of bed into Orchard road and commence shopping just as easily as one can roll back to the hotel. Strategically located is an understatement for sure.

Delectable Florals by Delectable Su

I think I just died and went to buttercream heaven. It’s no secret that both me and Cumi are crazy about old-school buttercream cakes. The sort we grew up on and ate as kids, especially after school, if we had been particularly bright that week, and our parents wanted to rewards us. And these days […]

Jamie’s Italian @ VivoCity Singapore

Jamie’s Italian. Heard so much about it, and finally got around to visiting it. Located in VivoCity Singapore by the riverfront, it makes for pretty dining indeed. And Jamie’s is definitely a perennial favorite, attracting everyone from local yuppies to people who work in the area of VivoCity. The dining room has a brightly lit, cheery contemporary feel […]

Cape Mentelle Degustation with Cameron Murphy @ Tanzini

Cape Mentelle wines are one of our favourites from Margaret River, not just because they excite our palates, but because while they are highly drinkable, they are affordable as well. When we visited the south-west corner of Australia 3 years ago, we thoroughly enjoyed some of the best wine we’d ever taste. And it is […]

5 Great Reason to stay at the St Regis Singapore

So one of those fine, fine establishments that we always walked past when holidaying in Singapore, would be the St. Regis Singapore. This time round, we were back in town for the Epicurean Market and we managed to squeeze in a quick stay at this swanky hotel. Well, needless to say, we loved the experience, and […]

Austrian Wine & Dine, with Chef Gottfried Prantl

The amazingly versatile wines of Austria must have long been a secret that they guard jealously, or that only wine connoisseurs know about. Because up till now, I surely did not know too much myself. And I am so glad, that I finally experienced them in all their glory.  I can see now, why their […]

Frankland Estate Wine Appreciation @ Saujana

Recently, we’d been hearing more and more about the wines from Fran­k­land Estate, located just south of Perth – famed for displaying finesse and balance, all the hallmarks of cool climate wine growing. This modest vineyard was estab­lished in 1988 by Bar­rie Smith and Judi Cul­lam, and currently is managed by daughter Eliz­a­beth Smith and […]
