Samy’s Curry Restaurant Singapore

Samy's Curry

Curry fish head, like chilli crab or chicken rice, is one of the iconic dishes in Singapore. When it comes to curry fish, one would immediately think of the famous places like The Banana Leaf Apolo, Muthu’s Curry, and of course, Samy’s Curry Restaurant.

I do not know what took me so long to try Samy’s Curry, but I finally did one night when my dining companion and I could not decide what to have for dinner. And oh boy, I wondered why I never had it earlier.

The Beginners Guide to Coffee

Beginners Coffee Guide

There is nothing better in the world than the smell of freshly grounded coffee beans permeating through a room, the sound of steam as it shoots through the nozzle of a Zagato and the first taste of liquid gold as it passes your lips, settles on your tongue and slides down your throat. Some people drink coffee for the caffeine, some for the flavour and most (like me) for both reasons.

For the regular coffee drinker, this post is probably worth skipping because you would already know the basics (like the components that make up a caramel macchiato for example). For the slightly amateur, here’s the beginners guide to coffee. And no, a “frappuccino” is not considered coffee.

Sofitel Bangkok Sukhumvit + Giveaway

Sofitel Bangkok Sukhumvit Hotel

// The winners of the giveaway are #345 and #495. I have another upcoming hotel giveaway, do look out for it!

Bangkok is a city of contrasts: the chaos and traffic jams can drive you mad, but at the same time, you can find peace and solace in the beautiful temples and spa treatments.

Apart from crazy shopping, wonderful street food and relaxing massages, one of my favourite things about Bangkok is the abundance of beautiful hotels.

During my first trip to Bangkok last month, I stayed in Sofitel Bangkok Sukhumvit (189 Sukhumvit Road Soi 13-15  Klongtoey Nua Wattana, Bangkok 10110, Thailand Tel: 02 126 9999), and it was a memorable experience. Luxurious, elegant, modern, it is the perfect place from which to explore the city.

P.S. I am giving away two nights stay at Sofitel Bangkok Sukhumvit for two lucky winners. Read on to find out how you can win the hotel stay.

The Pigeonhole

Words by Jolin Ma, photographs by ladyironchef

The Pigeonhole is tucked away from the bustling city, perfect for people like me who love some serenity in life. This little cafe is located, in my humble opinion, in the best area to hang out – Tanjong Pagar. Drop by someday, any day and for the matter everyday to get pampered with an array of cafes and restaurants located along winding streets power packed with culture and goodness!

A book cafe & dynamic arts space promoting local NGOs, music, film, performance & art – The Pigeonhole brings in uncommon beers from around the world. Besides that, they also offer pure simple coffee and tea to please the hearts and stomach of everyone.

Melbourne’s Unique Yet Affordable Dining Experience

Melbourne Eating Guide

Words and photographs by Hui Jun Ng

Living in Melbourne city has been an exciting gastronomical experience for me. Being surrounded by endless food and beverages on a daily basis has prompted me to come up with a list of 5 special foodie experiences that are reasonably priced.

Forget about walking along the main roads, it’s time to venture further, turn into laneways and walk up/down dark stairways. These precious gems that I am about to talk about (an open concept roof top bar, a tram stop café, an Italian restaurant managed by a mischievous boss, a floating bar and an underground Japanese restaurant) are located in the city vicinity but often in unnoticeable places. There’s so much Melbourne can offer!
