Duxton Hill = Mini Emerald Hill
A must-try vegetarian restaurant located at 200 South Bridge Road ! One will be very shocked to see the wide spread of varieties when looking at the menu, spolit for choices !!! The lady boss's name is Kessica and she is so friendly with customers. The place is actually not big at all, small cozy shophouse unit converted into a F&B place and i partcularly like the wall paper very much besides the yummy food. The wall paper & food attracted me so much that i will sure visit Deli-Vege more often.

Passed by Chinatown Heritage Centre & Singapore Heritage Restaurant located at the Pagoda Street. Experience first-hand what it was like to live in the cramped quarters of a shophouse. Take a peek through the eyes of shophouse dwellers through dismal and cramped quarters that have been painstakingly recreated, lending an authentic feel to the simple life that the early migrants used to lead.
And if you feel hungry after the tour at the museum, just pop by next-door the Singapore Heritage Restaurant. This restaurant delivers a rich and colourful menu that is an innovative take on the traditional flavours of Singapore.
Hotdogs in Chinatown
Finally managed to locate the famous German dude selling yummy hotdogs in Chinatown !!!
"Without music, life would be a mistake." - Friedrich Nietzsche (1844-1900)
This Friedrich Nietzsche quote used as a slogan by Gramophone music store at Capitol Centre caught my attention. It's so true actually, music is so enjoyable, life wouldn't be worthwhile without it !!! :-)
Located along Beach Road, it's a one-way street where there are quite a number of 'fad' types shops. It's Singapore's most eclectic shopping scene and it's narrow, but not narrow-minded. A few years ago, Haji Lane was a narrow strip of outdated shophouses. Now those same shophouses have been turned into small boutiques stocked with offbeat labels that you won’t find in Singapore malls.
I like the location, not crowded at all and you can really take your time to shop and snap all day long !
Saland Shop - This home-idea shop is being done up in monochrome: home furnishings in black and white with a minimalist feel. It's a good place to remake your apartment with help from someone less prone to colorful mistakes.
Put a gauzy drape over an old chair and slide your grotty shoes out of sight. PLUCK resembles an ideal homes magazine, with knockout furnishings and fashion gems you won't find anywhere else. Even better, there's an ice cream parlor on site. And in particular, i like the wordings craved on its glass panel: There are only 52 Saturday nights a year. Celebrate food & family everyday. So true !
The Blog Shop - This consignment shop rents space to fashion designers to showcase their most dazzling creations. A canary yellow mini-skirt? An unexpected houndstooth hankie? To paraphrase Forrest Gump, the Blog Shop is a lot like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get.
Skyroom 花草树木: I like this shop very much !!! I bought several blouses from this unique shop. They have another outlet at The Central.
The owners of Rockstar: called simply Soon Lee, which means "Plain Sailing", this boutique shop maintains the homely charm that has created regulars out of passing patrons. If you are in the market for smart and casual women's wear that won't break the bank. They also have another outlet at Orchard Cineleisure.
Straits Records - You won’t find Lady Gaga in this tiny record shop. The owners decide who has soul and shelf space according to their own impeccabe tastes. That means no pop nonsense. What you’ll find is alternative, hip-hop, hardcore and reggae, alongside local and regional indie bands not easily found elsewhere. Oh yes, they also buy & sell books. You can find quite a good range of books in this shop.
Have always been watching on how a courtroom looks like in television shows and never expect that i would really get to that doorstep in reality. Got called up to ask whether i am interested to join in a photography tour at the former Supreme Court before the whole place is closed for preservation works. I thought, this is such a rare chance for me to take a real look at the inside of this historic building and this place is not open to public viewing at all after the closure in 2006. The Old Supreme Court Building is one of the most handsome buildings in Singapore. It is located along St Andrew's Road, just beside the equally historic City Hall building. The new Supreme Court which was completed in 2006 sits on the site of the former Colombo Court and it is attracting quite a lot of attention among the locals.
Happened to see these wines in Three-Sixty upmarket supermart at ION Orchard Level 4. These caught my attention as in the 'height' of the bottles - from the smallest to the biggest bottle.
Look at the price tag for the biggest bottle - it costs S$3,888 !!!
Also saw these vintage champagnes - Dom Perignon vintage 2000. It's one of the world esteemed champagnes in the world. I remember getting one to give it to one of my most respected people in my life. Hope he likes this vintage as much as i do !
Actually not many Singapreans are aware of this cocktail. The Singapore Sling is a cocktail that was developed by a local who was working as a bartender at the Long Bar in Raffles Hotel before 1915. This cocktail has a delicious recipe with gin, cherry brandy, lime juice, benedictine herbal liqueur and brandy.
Heading towards the customs to cross over to Zhuhai from Macau.
Took a ferry from Macau to Hong Kong for one-day shopping spree. The ferry journey was only about 45 mins long and it was a very comfortable ride! Enjoyed myself very much, though it was only a day at HK.....
My last trip to Macau was almost 10 years ago and during my recent trip back, i found Macau to be a facinatinating place since the Portuguese colonial presence is still amazingly strong! In the language of the Macauans (is that how you say it?), the architecture, and the food! ...
