    There is a relatively new Courtyard by Marriott at the Novena area, which is right next to Novena MRT station. This is how the oustside looks like. zzB4cEVptW0 The hotel has a very nice cafe on the 22nd storey, called Sky 22. Went there for lunch and the views were awesome.

    Eva Airlines & Singapore Hotel

    Yes, please support my national carrier, Singapore Airlines! I make many flight review videos and here are just two. Singapore Airlines in Economy (long-haul) - Airbus A350 cCOdy19VpoI Singapore Airlines in Business (long-haul) - Airbus A380 r9ocU6H2bWc Take note, there are two Oasia hotels. One is at Novena, and the other one at Downtown. So give the correct address to your taxi driver!

    Some more videos from the top of Orchard Road. Probably the toilet with the best views on Orchard Road. [YOUTUBE]nlN5u5R6f6Y[/YOUTUBE] Taking the lift up to Orchard ION 55th storey.

    Shanghai Disneyland

    We visited Shanghai Disneyland in June this year (not on a cruise). Thought I would just share some of the videos I made here. Seven Dwarfs Mine Coaster Train (full ride) [YOUTUBE]VRb8c9XTYf0[/YOUTUBE] The light show. They cancelled the fireworks that night. Sob. [YOUTUBE]sa5dgY4-va0[/YOUTUBE] Shanghai Disneytown, located outside Disneyland. Plenty of food. [YOUTUBE]qGPfnNt0-HQ[/YOUTUBE] Buzz Lightyear Planet Rescue. I tried the one in Hong Kong and thought this would be the same. This turned out to be bigger and better! [YOUTUBE]B9eBrue2yoQ[/YOUTUBE] Since we were in China, the Cinderella had to sing in Chinese! [YOUTUBE]NakgJ5qPmD4[/YOUTUBE] In Disneytown, we ate both lunch and dinner at this eatery called Nan Xiao Dian. [YOUTUBE]bbcee_k8Npk[/YOUTUBE] Remember to get your tickets in advance. We bought them through the official app. When we entered the park, all the ticketing booths were closed!!

    It is Durian season in Singapore! The "King of Fruits"! Either you love it or hate it. This season, there is a bumper harvest from Malaysia, and the prices are significantly lower compared to last year. Check out this Durian store at a Town Center. Mao Shan Wang durians were going for $12/kg. [YOUTUBE]abVkY19aOQY[/YOUTUBE] While my wife and I don't buy Durians to eat, I'll join in when my fellowship group decides to indulge! Here are some videos of us enjoying Durians. 2018 Video. Durian feast! [YOUTUBE]1IZG7qNMUuo[/YOUTUBE] Durian - home delivery, from 2015. [YOUTUBE]KUSU_Tdjpu4[/YOUTUBE]

    Went to Resorts World Sentosa recently. This short clip shows the outside of Universal Studios, and opposite there are restaurants, as well as Hard Rock Cafe Sentosa. [YOUTUBE]s9vG3UaUr_Y[/YOUTUBE] Decided to have my lunch at Hard Rock Cafe Sentosa because they offered good lunch deals (3 courses) at $15 nett. I chose the ribs. Check it out! [YOUTUBE]ZFqYCzlai4I[/YOUTUBE] And this video shows you the Hard Rock Cafe drinks menu. All prices in Singapore dollars. [YOUTUBE]F9LB3JL12HA [/YOUTUBE]

    What a week it has been. The Trump-Kim summit came, and went. Probably the event of the year for Singapore. North Korean official TV produced an official documentary, for their people to watch. Here is the documentary, which I took the liberty to add some comments and text as the documentary proceeded. Plenty of good footage of my country, because Kim went on a mini-night tour of Singapore, visiting Gardens by the Bay (Flower Dome), Marina Bay Sands (Skypark) and the Esplanade.

    North Korean Leader Kim is likely to stay at the St Regis during the upcoming Trump Kim Summit held in Singapore. Co-incidentally, I had 2 nice dinners there in recent months. This was a formal wedding dinner. [YOUTUBE]vReouYecjpY[/YOUTUBE] Another nice dinner, somebody threw a big party. Same hotel, same ballroom. Exquisite occasions. [YOUTUBE]KFldfGIw5tg[/YOUTUBE] Some views of Singapore. You can see Tanjong Pagar container terminal, which has been vacated. Now full of cars waiting to be shipped. [YOUTUBE]uxTtx59cK78[/YOUTUBE] Great views of sunny Singapore, and you can see Marina Bay Sands in the distance. [YOUTUBE]7WiSiMzuJNQ[/YOUTUBE]

    You may have heard of the Michelin Star hawkers in Singapore - https://guide.michelin.sg/en/michelin-guide-restaurants/liao-fan-hawker-chan Another article from the local press. Hawker Chan has now expanded his business globally. http://www.straitstimes.com/lifestyle/food/hawker-chan-restaurant-by-one-michelin-starred-liao-fan-soya-sauce-chicken-opens-to We finally tried Hawker Chan's soya chicken, twice in fact in the past couple of weeks. The place was crowded! But food was good and very reasonable priced. On the first visit, to took away chicken and other meats. [YOUTUBE]DbA0LxXmYHo[/YOUTUBE] On our second visit, we took away the soya chicken noodles and char siew noodles. That place was crowded! [YOUTUBE]CwiVzzIhAEw[/YOUTUBE]

    You are right! http://www.nea.gov.sg/public-health/food-hygiene/food-hygiene-standards-in-singapore Back to the topic of Char Kway Teow, this is the store I patronise regularly, primarily because I live near this food center. [YOUTUBE]0CfKsYocYvk[/YOUTUBE]

    Brilliantly said. Yes, we love our hawker food. There was a point in time when the Government stopped building new hawker centers. Thankfully, they realised their folly and now we get new ones springing up now and then, especially when there are new housing estates. The older ones get a new lease of life through renovation and refurbishment. Hawker Centers are a national institution and the hygiene standards are very high. Food poisoning episodes from hawker centers are very, very rare. Because they are so rare, any significant case will make it to the news. You are right that restaurants and other forms of catered food (where transport from point A to B is required) tend to get hit with hygiene issues more often than hawker stores.

    Thanks for sharing this! I must admit, I haven't tried this store. I should! Glad that you go for hawker food. I think that is one of best-kept secrets. Not so much the high-end restaurants (which are pretty much available all over the world), but there is nothing like our hawker centers and food courts.
