Year of the Dog

2018-02-25 Aus Von christiankohl

We arrived at the right time, on (Chinese) New Year’s Eve. That meant some of the eatery choices were a bit limited, but even on a day like this Singapore has to offer so much … . So, we had a supernice breakfast at „Plentyfull“ (Millenia Walk) and then another great lunch at „Sufood“ (Raffles Mall Foodcourt, Level 2). I’d never even heard of Lion’s Mane Mushrooms before, but it was quite exquisite together with the black pepper sauce. Second dessert downstairs at „The Coffee Academics“, really nice decaf coffee and poppy seed cake. Yummy. Apart from that, the whole town just went crazy, we headed to Chinatown in the late afternoon/evening. It’s the year of the dog and there was lampions and dog thingies everywhere, night markets, party, parade. Nice. Outside of Chinatown it was comparatively quiet, so nice, unobstructed view of the (relatively) old Fire Brigade building for example.

We stayed at the Fairmont hotel, which was a wise decision. Nice rooms, super friendly staff, great location. And you can use the „hospitality lounge“ after checkout to have a shower before heading to the airport in the evening, so very convenient, too.
