In celebration of the most joyous season, PORTA at Park Hotel Clarke Quay has launched a Four-Course Festive Menu($66++) that's inspired by winter favourites. I believe that the menu, which is only available from 23-25 December, and on 30 and 31 December, is unbeatable in terms of value, especially during the Christmas period when Christmas feasts cost a bomb. PORTA is the place to bring your loved ones if you're looking to impress them, without burning a big hole in your pocket.

Everyone knows that Goodwood Park Hotel does Christmas right. Whether it's the English Afternoon Tea at L'Espresso, the festive sets at Gordon Grill, the Christmas Brunch Buffet at Gordon Grill and L'Espresso, or the myriad of delights available for purchase at The Deli, Goodwood Park Hotel
makes sure that every creation that's crafted for the most wonderful time of the year is stellar. Well, I wouldn't expect anything less from the prestigious hotel!

Everyone knows that Penang is a foodie's paradise, but do you really know how much there is to eat? The three of us had 50 dishes in 50 hours, and we barely even scraped the tip of the iceberg! Apart from being a UNESCO heritage site, charming Georgetown is host to tons of awesome hawker stalls and cool cafes. I think that the location of Georgetown is impeccable, and will recommend that you stay in this area as well! It's easy to get around, and Grab rides are very affordable. Are you ready for a glimpse of what Penang has to offer?

I first visited the funky Artichoke back in 2010, the year that they made Sculpture Square their home. I fell in love with their meat candy, which I made multiple return trips for. Fast forward a couple of years, I still visit every now and then for brunch. Strangely, I've never been here for dinner. And I never knew how much I was missing out on until my recent dinner here, which was kind of mind-blowing to be honest. I guess there's a reason why this 9-year-old outfit by Chef Bjorn Shen is #stillnotdead.

Known for pretty and delicious desserts, and innovative and creative savoury dishes, the homegrown brand by Chef Pang is, no doubt, one of our nation's favourite spots for afternoon tea, or post-dinner indulgence. But do you know that their newest outlet at Millenia Walk sends out yummy breakfast delights too?

My best friend and I spent five days exploring Hokkaido. We were passing through Niseko and decided to visit Cafe If which sits in a quiet neighbourhood. It was one of the most memorable cafe visits of our one-month stay in Japan.

Sushi Hotaru receives long queues every single day. The sushi train restaurant is especially popular amongst students and young people. This is one place where having tons of sushi won't burn a hole in your wallet. That being said, you also should have a fair expectation of what you're in for. You can't come here expecting top quality Japanese sushi of course.

My second trip to Taiwan presented me with the opportunity to visit Fengjia Night Market in Tai Chung. Fengjia is the largest night market in Taiwan and it has so much to offer in terms of food and shopping. Our cab driver told us what to eat at Fengjia Night Market and where the stalls are so we managed to locate them with ease. While we tried far too much food for our own good, some were really disappointing so we have compiled this list of food that we deemed worthy of your time and money.

There are hundreds of cafes and restaurants in Melbourne's CBD but most of them do not have an outdoor seating area. Hence, this means that dog owners have very limited options when it comes to taking their pooches out for a meal in the city. We've sussed out 12 places in the very heart of Melbourne that's perfect for you and your best friend.

Shanghai Wild Animal Park - Drive Through a Safari, Meet Baby Tigers & Catch Incredible Animal Performances!
Shanghai Wildlife Animal Park is the second "safari" park that I've been to in Asia. The first was Fuji Safari Park, which I thoroughly enjoyed. Shanghai Wildlife Animal has so much more to offer. There are animal races, animal shows, tons of animal exhibits and also a huge safari where you can drive through and see animals in their "natural habitat".

There are plenty of cafes and brunch spots in Melbourne's CBD but Operator25 has got to be the best. I've been here 3 times, and I still think that they have the best brunch food in the city. The coffee is really good too! As we all know, Asian-fusion is all the rage in the most liveable city in the world. And Operator25 has taken note of the fact and has injected lovely Asian influences into the typical and, sometimes, boring breakfast items.

Koko at Crown Melbourne is a household name. Known for authentic teppanyaki, the popular and elegant restaurant sends out sushi and a la carte dishes as well. Be sure to get a reservation in days before your visit to avoid disappointment!

A celebration at a seaside restaurant just always seems more romantic. Whether it is Christmas Eve, or Valentine's Day, Stokehouse along St Kilda Beach is dressed to impress. The restaurant sits on the second level and offers an amazing view of the ocean (depends on where your table is of course). If you're sitting right smack in the middle, by the window, you'll have a great view of the ocean and sunset.

Japanese food in Melbourne is highly disappointing. I didn't find a Japanese restaurant that I will revisit until I visited Komeyui in Port Melbourne. I heard that the restaurant is frequented by many Japanese nationals. That definitely says something about the standard of the food here. After we've taken our seats, we were presented with a menu of the day, and the usual menu. I have to say that the menu is pretty extensive!

Everyone knows of Scott Pickett, and everyone knows of Estelle by Scott Pickett(ESP). Widely regarded as one of the best restaurants in Melbourne, ESP has shut its doors after the hugely successful opening of Matilda 159 at Domain in South Yarra. Matilda 159 sits in a quiet neighbourhood, and occupies the middle spot in a row of popular restaurants. We made a reservation about 2 weeks in advance, and I'll advise that you make one as early as possible to secure better timeslots, or even a table at all.

Treasury on Collins turned 5 in 2018, but the young boutique hotel actually has a really rich history — it dates back to 1838. The plot of land that Treasury on Collins sits on had been occupied by a bank, and 2 different hotels before Treasury on Collins Apartment Hotel took over and grandly reopened in 2013. Located prominently on Collins Street in the heart of the CBD, the heritage hotel offers huge suites, loft apartments, and one or two-bedroom apartments. The suites come equipped with kitchenette, washing machine/dryer, living area with sofa and a 40" television with Netflix while the one and two-bedroom apartments have a separate living area, dining area, and a fully functioning kitchen that's furnished with a dishwasher and stove top.
