SINGAPORE-4 : Food

“One of the nicest things about life is the way we we must regularly stop whatever it is we are doing and devote our attention to eating.”
-Luciano Pavarotti
Being complete foodies & dessert fanatics, we try to explore the best that we can when we travel. That’s also the only time , I’m injudicious with my calories & indulge nonchalantly. Singapore was no different so here goes… Continue reading “SINGAPORE-4 : Food”

SINGAPORE – 3

Onto the last leg of our vacation in Singapore…After all the shimmer, shine and being spoilt rotten at the Marina Bay Sands, it was time to indulge in some “childhood therapy” at the Universal Studios. Located in the Sentosa Island, it was about an hour by train from our hotel, The Grand Copthorne.

-Lawrence Block
Let me narrate an amusing story about how an innocent love for food turned into dream holiday. Back when we were in the US, we stumbled upon a whimsical land, enchanting and blissful. The doors of Ben & Jerry’s had opened for us to explore the magic of creamy, calorific goodness. I know better than to sound like an ad but all the same, helpless. Phish Food, Chunky Monkey, Cherry Garcia and Chocolate Fudge Brownie had clearly made themselves very close to the heart and stomach and Friday nights were never the same.
