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
A place to park your bag
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 Sorry, I find the sink outdated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
The office chair is a bit outdated (read: matigas) #morechuvaproblems
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
