People heading to Tokyo on vacation will usually include the touristy stuff in their itineraries. Activities include visiting Kawaguchiko for a glimpse of Mount Fuji, spending the day at Disneyland Tokyo, taking pictures at the famous Shibuya crossing, and more. Few know about Fuji Safari Park, which is near Mount Fuji. Fuji Safari Park gives you an experience somewhat similar to what you will experience in a safari in Africa, but at a fraction of the price.

This is my second visit to Salt. The first time was in 2012 during Restaurant Week. I remember loving the ambience and having pretty great things to say about the food. 5 years on, I'm back again. This time, I was here to celebrate my birthday. Of course I was excited to celebrate my special day at one of the most highly acclaimed restaurant in Singapore, perched on the 55th storey in the heart of town, no less.

15 Cafes with Good Vibes and the Best Coffee in Melbourne

 photo Kitty Burns Melbourne.jpg
If you're a coffee-lover, like me, you'd be no stranger to names such as Nylon, Liberty, and Sarnies. I love my lattes rich, robust, creamy, smooth, and with as little sourness or acidity, and bitterness as possible. Hence, my all-time favourite coffee place in Singapore is Nylon. I used to love Assembly Coffee, and Pacamara too. I travelled to Melbourne for 3 weeks recently, and visited a total of 21 cafes - including famous coffee houses such as Market Lane Coffee, Industry Beans, and Manchester Press. Here are 15 gorgeous cafes that brew awesome coffee. And if you love Nylon, Liberty, or Sarnies, I'm confident that you'll love the coffee at these cafes too.

Yardbird Southern Table & Bar, not to be confused with Yardbird in Hong Kong, has brought their award-winning Southern American cuisine to our shores, right at the iconic Marina Bay Sands. They take on a different name, The Bird, but are still serving the same good food and extending the same heart-felt hospitality. If you're a die-hard fan of chicken and waffles, or are a huge fan of authentic Southern American cuisine, this is one restaurant that you definitely cannot miss.

 photo The Playground Coffee 6.jpg
The Playground Coffee took over the space formerly occupied by Pits & Pans. The cafe sits in Nanyang Community Centre and is a cozy space that serves up good coffee and decent brunch fare. You may be able to find similarities, such as the use of geometric shapes in the interior design and logo, between The Playground Coffee and The Populus Coffee & Food Co at Neil Road. This is because The Playground Coffee is set up by ex-staff of the popular Populus.
