Boasting 140 guest rooms, suites, villas and a mansion, Amara Sanctuary Resort Sentosa is known for its beautifully restored colonial architecture.

The rich history of the property might not be known to many, but that’s going to change now. The new Amara Heritage Trail—a 60-minute walking trail— allows participants to discover the nature and conservation efforts in the property, learn about World War II related stories, and it also offers a glimpse into the lives of the British soldiers who lived here in the colonial era.

Goodwood Park Hotel - Staycation in a Beautiful Heritage Hotel

 photo Goodwood Park Staycation 4.jpg
Goodwood Park Hotel is a familiar name to both locals and travellers. The famous 5-star hotel, which was built in the 1900s is one of the oldest hotels in Singapore. Her colonial beauty has been preserved and protected, and the heritage hotel welcomes throngs of visitors throughout the year. I've always thought that staying here would burn a huge hole in my pocket, considering how exclusive it seems, and its proximity to Orchard Road. Surprisingly, a night stay in one of their deluxe rooms on level one, next to the pool, wasn't as pricey as I had imagined.

The Gate Hotel Asakusa Kaminarimon - Great Location, Modern Rooms!

 photo The Gate Asakusa Tokyo 11.jpg
Asakusa might not be the most central of location in Tokyo but most tourists still make it a point to visit because of the Senso-ji and Tokyo Skytree. Dressed in eye-catchingly bright hues, Senso-ji is the oldest Buddhist temple in Tokyo. It draws throngs of people day in day out. It's beautiful in the day, and as stunning at night. Sitting pretty right opposite the famous temple is The Gate Hotel, which plays host to visitors from all over the world. Located just about 250m from Asakusa Station, The Gate Hotel is near many eateries and bars. You can have supper at the popular Ichiran before heading to A.S.A.B (a quaint and cozy bar) for drinks. If you're up for a louder and more vibrant kind of bar, pop by Hub Jazz Bar for live performances and mingle with the crowd! If you prefer to drink in the hotel, The Gate has got you covered with their private bar that is exclusive to hotel guests. Knock back a couple of cocktails as you revel in a splendid view of the iconic Skytree.

THE LIN Hotel - A Crazy Luxurious Stay in Taichung

 photo The Lin Hotel Tai Chung 9.jpg
THE LIN in Taichung is undoubtedly one of the most luxurious hotels that I've ever stayed in. Upon arriving at the 5-star hotel, I was greeted by the sight of eight Lamborghinis parked right in front of the hotel. I asked the doorman if there was a car show or something but he said the cars belonged to guests who were staying at the hotel. I should have known then, what I was getting myself into.

Hooked@Edge - The Best Seafood Buffet Dinner in Town Just Keeps Getting Better

 photo best buffet dinner singapore.jpg
I rave about Edge all the time. Whenever anyone asks for a buffet recommendation, Edge is the first answer that pops out of my mouth. If you haven't been to Edge, you really really should! And there's no better time than now, because Edge has just revamped their spread with spanking new additions! Look forward to an enhanced selection of seafood, a daily double-boiled soup counter, and a cendol and teh tarik live station, on top of an incredibly wide variety and numerous live counters. I have no doubt that you'll be dazzled by the selection that you have no idea where to start. Well, I usually go for the fresh seafood on ice and sashimi first!

Morton's Steakhouse Singapore - An All New Sunday Lunch Menu

 photo Mortons Sunday Lunch Steak.jpg
My favourite steakhouse has spiced up their Sunday Lunch Menu with tantalising new additions that will charm your socks off. Apart from the droolworthy selection of Morton's specialties and prime steaks, Morton's has kept their value-for-money three-course lunch set which goes for $98++.

Exciting new dishes include Short Rib Tacos and Beef Tenderloin Sandwiches. Morton's also pays homage to the all-time favourite BLT, with their rendition of Crab Cake BLT. Morton's might be known for their steak, but they are quite the master when it comes to seafood too. I tried their Honey-Balsamic Glazed Salmon Fillet before, and was utterly mesmerized.

Hai Tien Lo - Luxurious Weekday Dimsum Lunch Buffet

 photo Hai Tien Lo Dimsum Buffet 8.jpg
It's no secret that I love Pan Pacific Singapore. From Edge, which I believe has the best buffet spread in Singapore, to Pacific Marketplace, which has some of the most refined and unique entremets, to Atrium, where diners can dive into a beautiful selection of high tea delights, to the highly acclaimed Hai Tien Lo which consistently delivers delicious Cantonese fare with a modern twist, Pan Pacific is truly a food haven. Recently, Hai Tien Lo refreshed their dim sum buffet and there's so much to look forward to — a hot soup, unlimited servings of dim sum, 3 choices of Hai Tien Lo specialty dishes, 2 choices of dessert and a bowl of Chilled Homemade Bean Curd with Bird's Nest.
