Seattle in 48 Hours

48 Hours in Seattle

High-tech, yet old school; innovative, artsy and a little hippie at the same time. A maritime urban centre in the Pacific Northwest of America, Seattle has diverse neighborhoods that cause shifting moods as one moves from one corner of the city to the other.

I had a short visit to Seattle this Spring break and was lucky that I made the choice because the sakuras that were in full bloom is every reason that Spring time is the best time to visit the city despite the ongoing rain. But hey, what is Seattle without the thick clouds and rain?

Here are some of the things that you can do and see when you have 48 hours in Seattle.

Seasonal Tastes The Westin Singapore

Seasonal Tastes

After taking a hiatus from Singapore’s hotel scene for a few years, The Westin has returned and this time round, sparkles amid the fanfare. Perched on a high ground and occupying levels 32 to 46 of Asia Square Tower Two at Marina View, The Westin Singapore is highly grand – literally. Besides the Westin Heavenly Bed, a stunning infinity pool, the Westin Workout fitness studio, and a luxe hotel decor, what we are really excited about is Seasonal Tastes – The Westin Singapore’s signature restaurant with interactive kitchens and featuring an impressive buffet line up that have already rocketed to our list of top favourites.

We love Seasonal Tastes’ buffet (S$35++/pax for buffet lunch, S$55++/pax for buffet dinner) for many reasons. Besides selling you the view of the Marina and how each and every chef is dedicated to whipping up their bests and delivering only the finest selections daily, we are truly excited to share about how this new addition is fast becoming a destination for the people of Singapore when they want to recharge their souls with good food.

Seasonal Tastes Buffet

For one, it is a top quality five-star buffet sans the exorbitant price tag, and everything that we sampled was cooked to high standards. Being located on level 32 of The Westin Singapore, Seasonal Tastes boasts a splendidly unobstructed view of Marina Bay and the south coast of Singapore. And because the location is very convenient, executives in the vicinity can now claim this spot as your favourite hangout; count on Seasonal Tastes whenever you crave a timeout from work. And if you are planning a family gathering on the weekends, parking is easy and affordable (S$3/entry).

Here are some of the highlights of Seasonal Tastes’ buffet.

Skin Inc Pure Revival Peel

Skin Inc Pure Revival Peel

“Eat well, live well, be well.”

This has always been Melody’s and my mantra in life, and while we always treat ourselves to the better things in life, we have always believed in a holistic approach towards a complete well-being.

Eating is our hobby and so is traveling. Every good meal and every trip uplifts the spirits and makes us happy. And while we are what we eat, we have also formed a firm belief in treating our skin to the best food, too. Because when we feel good, we look good. And feeling good inside out is the very holistic approach we practise.

Iloveskinc

Lately, we have been introduced to a miracle product, and both Melody and I have inculcated it in our respective daily skincare regimes – Skin Inc’s Pure Revival Peel. Renown for their highly concentrated, 100% pure and active serums and skincare from Japan, Skin Inc (www.iloveskininc.com) offers customised skincare solutions for each and every individual.

Apart from their regular ranges, here is our favourite Pure Revival Peel, and 3 reasons why you should feed your skin the best it deserves:

Singapore Changi Airport, My Favourite Airport

Singapore Changi Airport

Chasing planes is always a thrill that adds on to the entire travel experience, and this was what we used to enjoy, until we got spoilt by Changi Airport and decided we all need a travel ritual to kickstart a true blue holiday.

No two airports are identical, and for that, Changi Airport is outstanding and amongst the best in the world.

Spa at Kayumanis Villa Ubud

Kayumanis Ubud Spa

I’ve never been to nature spa, nor do I know much about one – until I went to the spa at Kayumanis Private Estate & Villa in Ubud, Bali. Perched atop the hills is a tranquil paradise that oversees the Ayung River and Lauh River of Ubud. And it truly reflects the essence of this traditional part of Bali.

Balinese spa is all about spiritual healing. The focus of Kayumanis spa is to embrace its roots and culture and brings to the world a true Balinese experience.

Shakey’s Pizza Singapore

Shakey's Pizza

Talk about American food and we all think of pizzas, fried chicken, mojos and ribs. And that is just what Shakey’s Pizza is – one of the biggest chains in America for casual dining. In Singapore, Shakey’s is a cosy bistro that dishes out comforting American classics. They do their pizzas well, as with many other tantalising main courses, complete with the addition of some Asian creations like Oishi Wasabi Pizza and Seafood Marinara.

But we’d say go for the signature Shakey’s Baby Back Ribs (S$14.80 for half slab, S$19.80 for full slab). Well-marinated, tender and flavorful, the ribs are oh-so-delicious and very pleasantly affordable. Guilt-free indulgence, monetarily; one that will earn our loyalty.

And of course, pizza lovers should all flock to Shakey’s for the classic Shakey’s Special (S$19.80 for 9-inch, S$24.80 for 12-inch). Generous toppings of minced beef, ham and olives atop a warm and fluffy dough, then baked with mozzarella cheese – the end result is a pizza that oozes the aroma of perfection and one that completes a family feast.

Baby Back Ribs

The menu is a comprehensive and reasonably-priced one, from salads to pastas to pizzas; there will surely be something for every palate. Most of the dishes are priced below S$20, making Shakey’s Pizza a place where you can dine out and have a good meal without breaking the bank.

Shakey’s Pizza currently has two branches at Liang Court and Junction 10, and they are planning to open more outlets in the near future – do keep a look out for them! For more details, go to shakeyspizza.com.sg or ‘like’ them on facebook.
