Short Stay

17 Nov 2016 – @MBS Guiding In This Area

With thanks and appreciations to cousin Annie&Neo for this entire posting.


Tue: @Outram Ya Hua Rou Gu Cha***Keppel Rd for yummy bak kut teh. Been awhile since I was there.


Was entertained with Chinese music by a group of young lovely ladies@MBS Lobby Tower1.


Was totally impressed watching Annie with her glass-beaded handcraft, blessed to be presented with with one of her exquisite necklaces a few days ago.



Sky on 57 by Justin Quek****MBS Hotel. Yummy fusion fine dinning with a view. Salad with Truffle vinaigrette, Char coal Grilled KagoshimaA5Wagyu Sirloin, Laksa, Wok-fried Maine Lobster Hokkien Noodles and Foie Gras Xiao Long Bao.


The SuperMoon finally showed its face tonight high above but besides being big and bright, not sure as to where and how super it is? Perhaps the city lights overwhelmed the natural super part of it…


Wed: breakfast with a view@Club55 MBS Hotel with a view to East Coast Pk and thinking about the 7k walk by the sea! Good smoked-salmon.



Enjoying the super presentations of the variety of foods and T-places and The Shoppes MBS Food court (the most expensive food court in SIN).


A short walk at the infinity pool andĀ  to and on the Super-trees@Gardens by the Bay to be back at the hotel in time to meet Yun’s cousin Emily&Lim from her maternal side.


Dinner@Imperial Treasure Fine Chinese Cuisine****a part of The Shoppes@MBS. 8 courses+desserts – Peking duck (their signature dish), beef, chicken, fish, noodles, prawns, tofu and the best soup made from pork and seaweeds – tkx to Annie and fam.


The Hurricane Water Feature is unfortunately closed forĀ  maintenance but the Light show was well-received.


Thu: breakfast@Adrift MBS Hotel. Smoked-salmon here not as good as Club55. Laksa and dim-sum OK, but quite a novelty way to serve honey!


More maternal cousins for Yun to catch up with and after such a breakfast, could only handle a few spoonfuls of mango-pudding. If I continue eating like there is no tomorrow, there will be to tomorrow. Yun is heading to the Gardens with Emily while I head back to MBS to update here.

And I find chopsticks frankly distressing. Am I alone in thinking it odd that a people ingenious enough to invent paper, gunpowder, kites and any number of other useful objects, and who have a noble history extending back 3,000 years haven’t yet worked out that a pair of knitting needles is no way to capture food? ~Bill Bryson
