 photo Pacific Marketplace - Special Christmas Bundles.jpg

It's less than a month to Christmas and I'm sure many of you are wondering where to celebrate this cheery occasion, or where to grab tasty takeaways for your parties. I'm here to help, or rather, Pan Pacific Singapore is here to help!

Kisumé - New High-End Japanese Restaurant in Melbourne

 photo Kisume Melbourne 10.jpg
Kisume is a high-end Japanese restaurant by The Lucas Group which also owns the famous Chin Chin. The name 'Kisume' itself means pure obsession with beauty. This was where I had my very first Japanese meal in Melbourne. I was so eager to dine here, you have no idea. Once I was seated at the counter, and presented with the menu, I wasted no time, and went for the omakase set ($88) right away. The chefs know best, don't they?

Kaniya - Amazing Family-Run Seafood Restaurant in Ibaraki

 photo Kaniya Ibaraki Restaurant 3.jpg
Ibaraki is a prefecture near Tokyo, and it is home to many colleges and institutions. Thousands flock to Mito, the capital city, each year to visit the Hitachi Seaside Park, where different flowers are in bloom throughout the entire year. The park is decked in different colours through different seasoons and the gorgeous park is indeed breathtaking. If you're thinking of popping by Ibaraki for a short trip, you have to visit Kaniya! The service here is seriously impeccable. While we were working our way through our King Crab (9,800yen), the old lady washing dishes at the counter decided to help us. She broke the legs and fed us the succulent and juicy crab meat directly! We couldn't help but laugh as we bite the flesh off the shell, from her hands.

Rice Paper Sister - Solid Newcomer in the Melbourne Food Scene

 photo Rice Paper Sister Melbourne 11.jpg
After dining at Rice Paper Scissors, I knew that a visit to Rice Paper Sister is a must. If you haven't already caught the reference, the latter is the sister restaurant of the former. Similar to their first restaurant, Rice Paper Sister also celebrates South-East Asian cuisine with their unique take on classic Southeast Asian dishes. Fresh and organic ingredients that are sourced locally are used here too, but the dining experience here seems to be a tad more sophisticated and refined.

Poolside Patio - Fire Up with Barbecue Nights at Pan Pacific Singapore

 photo Pan Pacific Singapore Poolside Patio 
8.jpg
If you don't already know, Pan Pacific Singapore is one of my favourite, if not favourite hotel in Singapore. The five-star property has the best buffet restaurant, Edge, a cozy Atrium where high tea sets and cocktails can be enjoyed, a marketplace where you can get your hands on freshly made pastries and goodies, and the amazing Hai Tien Lo which dishes out phenomenal Chinese cuisine. I've been to the hotel many times but it still surprises me - everything is so consistently good here. And now, Poolside Patio, an al fresco dining venue adjacent to the refurbishes swimming pool and Poolside Bar, is set to blow diners away with a sizzling four-course barbecue menu on Friday and Saturday nights.

Rice Paper Scissors - Possibly the Best Restaurant in Melbourne

 photo Rice Paper Scissors Melbourne 
5.jpg
Before I went to Melbourne, I did plenty of research on where to eat. Every holiday for me is about food, food, and more food. I got in touch with a couple of food bloggers in Melbourne to ask for recommendations. I was so sure that my palate would be dazzled and the calories that I would be piling on would be worth it. Unfortunately, despite heeding recommendations and visiting some of the most raved about restaurants in Melbourne, I was sorely disappointed. I was there for three weeks, and really had alot to eat, but there are only a few places that I'll recommend. And, Rice Paper Scissors is one of them. The entire dining experience was amazing - the servers were really friendly, warm and helpful, the atmosphere was cozy and lively, and most importantly, the food was really good.

Ryo Sushi - Best Value For Money Omakase in Singapore

 photo Ryo Sushi Orchid Hotel 5.jpg
Those who love Japanese food, particularly sushi, should be no stranger to Ryo Sushi. Even if you have not dined here before, you would most probably have heard of their amazingly-priced omakase sets. Omakase dinners have long been known to be expensive, with the prices hitting $350 per pax (before taxes) at most of the established and esteemed Japanese restaurants on our sunny little island. Shinji is one of the places where most people dream of dining at, but a meal there will cause significant damage to your piggy bank. If you're thinking of going for an awesome omakase dinner, but not keen on splurging that much, Ryo Sushi is undoubtedly the place for you.

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.

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.

Happifi - Possibly the Best Pocket Wifi for Your Holiday

 photo Happifi portable wifi Singapore 2.jpg

There are a ton of companies offering portable wifi devices. Some at cut throat prices, but is the connection really reliable? There are data sim card options too but the amount of data is limited, and if you go on a really long holiday, like I did, the data sim might not be valid for the entire duration. I was going to Japan for a month and I looked through so many options. None of the data sim cards covered my entire holiday. And those that came remotely close to doing so (like 21 days) offered really low amount of data or are quite ridiculously expensive.

New Launch Project or Resale Unit?

New projects such as new launch condos are developments under construction. These properties have not yet been built, and developers sell their units off the floor plan. Sometimes, the developer builds show suites or a mock-up of the layout to help prospective buyers visualize the space and placement of furniture.

On the other hand, resale units are completed properties, and buyers go into the actual unit to inspect and observe what they are going to buy.

The star here is, no prizes for guessing it right, the ginormous egg sandwiches. Each order comes with four fist-sized egg-bread packages. The omelette is not exactly fluffy, I found it to be on the denser side, but the portion is irrefutably generous. Slathered with a thin layer of tomato sauce, the egg sandwich wasn't mind-blowing but it's, no doubt, satisfying. I really liked the steamed white bread though!

Stickies Bar - Where the Price of Your Drink Depends on the Time

 photo Stickies 2.jpg
Stickies Bar is truly the place where the early bird catches the good worm. The bar opens at 12pm, and the price of drinks is priced by the hour. If you order at 230pm, each drink will only cost you $2. Think Pure Blonde for $2? A glass of wine for $2? Holy moly, is this for real?
