Singapore two years later (Part 1)
Posted on

I have a love-hate relationship with Singapore. I used to go there a lot and it was there that I first experienced Pepper Lunch, which changed my life forever.
But ever since Japan granted me a three-year VISA, I started going to Japan more whenever I can.
The last time I was in Singapore was Valentine’s Day, 2013.
I find it amazing how Singapore Airlines has changed in two years
The business class seats are HUGE! The seats are so wide they give you two kinds of pillows

It’s not a flat bed but you can stretch

My legs aren’t long enough but it’s good to have a place to rest them

I can charge my gadgets. Look, there are two USB, plus one universal outlet (110 volts only)

There’s a dedicated drink holder that’s out of harm’s way

The food was OK. Jeroen was surprised I ate on the plane cause I rarely do. Can’t say no to chicken rice.

Changi Airport is still beautiful and spacious

At the Grand Hyatt Hotel We got a room upgrade at the old wing. This was a good bed with freezing aircon (nice)

This opens up to the bathroom. Sorry, I find the sink outdated

I like the spacious dressing table, but the lighting is bad for makeup and the stool is way too low #chuvaproblems

Separate shower and toilet. No need for bathtub

Nice little walk-in closet

Spacious retro-modern suite

Other than those little things, we did enjoy our stay!
I had chicken rice everyday. If you ask me, my favorite is the roast chicken by Sergeant at ION Orchard or Food Republic. I wish Sergeant would come to the Philippines! We have nothing like it in Manila and there is nothing like chicken rice in Singapore.

Another store I wish we had in Manila is Kikki K, the Australian stationery store. There’s a nice branch at ION Orchard

COS at ION Orchard is a must-stop for basic minimalist clothes

I LOVE Kikki K, save for the unfortunate name. Haha. But I always have to exercise self-control when I’m there. How are the COS prices?
