New Launch Project or Resale Unit?

 photo Picture1.png

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.

La Madrague - Gigantic Egg Sandwiches on a Quiet Street in Kyoto

 photo La Madrague Kyoto. 2.jpg
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!

 photo Beach Road Kitchen South Beach 19.jpg
The JW Marriott Singapore South Beach introduces Beach Road Kitchen, an all-day dining destination. The 247-seater is one of nine dining establishments under the luxury hotel. The gorgeous restaurant will definitely catch your eye even if you're just walking past. It's a short walk away from the main hotel building, and sits pretty in South Beach Avenue. I went to Beach Road Kitchen really full, and didn't think that I was gonna eat much but the impressive spread left me no choice but to stuff myself silly.

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?

Birds of a Feather - New Weekend Brunch with a Taste of Sichuan

 photo Birds of a Feather 2.jpg
Just six months old, Birds of a Feather has really made a name for itself with its repertoire of contemporary Western dishes that are inspired by traditional Sichuan cuisine. The restaurant is gorgeous. It has natural light streaming through the glass roof in the day, and it rocks a romantic ambience when night falls. And now, they have launched a new all-day weekend brunch that runs from 10am to 5pm. The Hong Shao Beef Ragout Orecchiette ($26) is an absolute must-try!

 photo The Roastery by Nozy Coffee 3.jpg
While my travel partner was queuing for the famous Luke's Lobster, I decided to make a quick trip to The Roastery for a cup of latte. The cafe was really popular. Not only was it packed, there were two long queues stretching out of the entrance.

Luke's Lobster(Omotesando) - Best Lobster Roll?

 photo Lukes Lobster Omotesando 2.jpg
People rave about Luke's Lobster all the time and I was all ready to give it a try. All the way from New York, the snug little booth in the popular Omotesando area is familiar to snaking long queues and throngs of tourists. The queue was super long, unfortunately, when I got there and we queued for close to an hour for these babies. We decided to get a trio of sandwiches so we had a variety of seafood to savour. Shrimp, crab and lobster!

Sushi Sei Honten - Fresh and Affordable Sushi

 photo Sushi Zanmai Tsukiji Tokyo 2.jpg
When I talk about the famous Tsukiji Fish Market in Tokyo, almost everyone starts raving about Sushi Dai or Sushi Daiwa. I wasn't prepared to start queuing at 4am in the morning for either of these two popular sushi restaurants so I decided to find something as good, without the insane queue. This was how I discovered Sushi Sei Honten, a two-storey restaurant in Tsukiji.

Hooked@Edge - My Favourite Buffet in Singapore has Even More Seafood Now!

 photo Hooked  Edge Pan Pacific 13.jpg
When asked where's my favourite buffet place in Singapore, my answer is always "Edge at Pan Pacific Singapore". The spread is always incredibly extensive, especially luxurious and of only the best quality. My favourite sections are the dessert corner, seafood on ice section and live grill station, but I also love the pasta, bread and sashimi sections! The buffet line-up has recently been revitalised with new creations and diners can look forward to Oatmeal Crayfish, Nyonya King Prawn Laksa, Wok-fried King Lala Beehoon, Cuttlefish Tagliolini Pasta, Prawn Panggang with Sea Salt, Steamed Mussels Pot and more.
