“Quality desserts, kindly priced”
Cream and Custard adopts a very chic, minimalistic décor; white walls all around with lavenders decked in light bulbs. It borders quite a bit on the pretentious, but the glam factor does help make the place a lot more inviting.
Boutqiue Hotel in The Heart of Sukhumvit
While I was in Bangkok, I had the luxury of staying at The Continent Hotel in Sukhumvit, a boutique hotel right in the center of the action in Bangkok.
Not only is the hotel surrounded by multiple shopping malls like The Emporium Bangkok and the recently-opened EmQuartier, but is also just a 5 minute walk away from Asok BTS and Sukhumvit MRT station – an extremely strategic and convenient location to stay at in Bangkok.
“A lovely, leisurely place to have a meal with friends and family”
Bukit Timah which means “Tin Hill” in Malay, and you would think that the area contained, well, tin in the past, but nope, apparently it was a misconception.
The original Malay name for Bukit Timah hill was Bukit Temak, meaning “hill with temak trees”, referring to pokok temak- a tree that grew mostly on the sides of the hill. When westerners heard the malay name Temak however, it sounded like Timah to them and hence Bukit Timah. We seem to name a lot of our streets (even our country name itself) after misconceptions.
“Urban Serviced Apartment Suite in Bangkok”
During my trip to Bangkok, I had the pleasure of being hosted at Fraser Suites Sukhumvit, which is about a 10 minutes walk away from the nearest BTS (Nana). Well, the property has a tuk tuk shuttle service to the station anyway if you’re terribly lazy, but sometimes traffic gets so bad I’d much rather walk.
Frasers Suites Sukhumvit is located in one of Bangkok’s most vibrant nightlife areas, with multiple pubs and bars just littered on the street right outside the building at Sukhumvit 4 alley.
“Simple, clean space and flavours”
Ever wanted a moment’s peace from your hectic, Singapore life? It seems like everywhere is crowded at almost anytime – on public transport, on roads, and especially during lunch hour at restaurants and food courts. The snaking queues, hard to find seats and the lack of space to even walk really builds my resolve to bear with my hunger until the crowd disperses.

Admittedly, oysters are not for everyone. However, for those who are adventurous enough and are willing to give these bivalved molluscs a try, then read on and then make your way to Chef Alan Lee’s Greenwood Fish Market.
