Singapore Part Deux

The lateness of this post just boggles the mind. Had a lot of things going on and my travel posts just kept getting tossed in the backseat. So with time on my hands, I present my 27th Singapore Birthday entry.

Second year in a row and I never get tired of this place. And of course, I really came back to see the Harry Potter Exhibit at the Arts and Science Museum (which I have dubbed ‘The Claw’). It was awesome. Nerdgasm galore. Of course, it sucked that I couldn’t take any photos and it was also a bit awkward being the only person above the age of 10 having a squealing fangirl moment. The Andy Warhol exhibit was also a bonus.

As usual, feet were hella aching after all that walking. Walked from Marina Bay Sands -Raffles – Boat Quay – Clarke Quay – Esplanade and back to Fullerton. As a birthday treat, I had High Tea @ The Fullerton. My wallet had a heart attack but hey, do one thing at least once in a lifetime right?

One of the best parts of the vacation was the FOODTRIP! Satay, stringray, kangkong, chicken wings, xiao long bao, takuyaki, ice cream, kaya toast, milo dinosaur, meesam and so much moooore! Click here for my Singapore Food Trip Chronicles:

Checked in at the BEST HOTEL IN ASIA – WANDERLUST. Loved, loved, loved my whimsical space loft with the bathtub right in the center of the living room, Nespresso machine, unlimited drinks in the mini bar and Kiehl’s toiletries. Had a spectacular lunch and dinner service at Cocotte. French country cuisine that truly went beyond my expectations.
