Sofitel City Centre Singapore @ Wallich Street

Opened in October, Sofitel City Centre is easily my current favourite hotel in Singapore! After experiencing both Sofitel SO and Sofitel Sentosa, I would say that Sofitel City Centre is the epitome of French luxury. From its interior design, to location and service,  I would give it 10 out of 10. While the check-in counter…

[Shanghai] Old Jesse (Lao Ji Shi) 老吉士 @ 41 Tian Ping Road

I’ve been told multiple times by different people that Old Jesse is a restaurant that I must never miss out in Shanghai – you’re lucky if you could even get a table if you don’t call days in advance! I’m talking about the original store at Tian Ping Road that is. The restaurant has since…

[Shanghai] Chikalicious @ Xin Tian Di (新天地)

My first entry for my Shanghai series! So here goes… On the first day of our mother-daughter trip to Shanghai, we were strolling through Xin Tian Di (新天地) after dinner and this new, futuristic-looking architecture caught our eyes. There was no one inside there café but out of curiosity, we went in and asked what they…

Staycation: Hotel Jen @ Tanglin

There’s something different about #thejenfeeling. It is hipster, forward yet homely at the same time. Every turn and corner contains a surprise. Because photos will speak for themselves, here they are. Lobby lounge and a cafe at the back. Instagram-worthy stationary swings! #Bedroomgoals Cosy corner of the room with quotes of the day! Even a…

Hotel Review: The South Beach Hotel @ Beach Road

First post of 2016 is dedicated to a hotel of where I spent the first minutes of 2016 at – the new The South Beach hotel. Designed by renowned French designer Philippe Starck, the latest luxury hotel in Singapore boasts a capacity of 654 rooms and suites. The South Beach is a project that consists of…

Celeste Restaurant @ Dancing House, Prague, Czech Republic

Dancing House is one of the must-see architectures in Prague and there’a fine-dining restaurant at the top of the building called Celeste! Of course, Foodiepink had to report on this. 😛 As you can see, the Dancing House did not conform to the norm of Baroque or Gothic styles that were typical of European buildings. Thus,…

CottoCrudo @ Four Seasons Hotel, Prague, Czech Republic

From the outside, Four Seasons Hotel in Prague, is a humble, low-rise building of colonial style. CottoCrudo is one of the best restaurants in Prague (according to my research prior to my trip), so of course Foodiepink has to give it a try! The restaurant was huge! There were bar seatings separated form another wide…

Luka Lu Restaurant @ Prague, Czech Republic

My first meal in Prague was extremely colourful and fun! While doing my research online, I was immediately drawn to the beautiful interiors of the restaurant. See below! Isn’t this simply stunning? This space is the backyard of the restaurant, with a light-well above and a mezzanine floor accessed by the blue wooden stairs. The…

Hotel Review: Shangri-La Hotel, Bangkok

Well, the Shangri-La brand needs no further introduction. Thus, this is just a quick photo view of the hotel’s vicinity and of course, breakfast buffet. My entire stay here at Shangri-La Hotel, Bangkok was nothing short of perfection. It’s very near the Silom MTR station and you can take the sheltered link through Shangri-La Residences, which…

Breeze Restaurant @ Lebua Hotel, Bangkok

Lebua is an impressive Five-Star hotel with various dining options at the top of the building. Asian cuisine at Breeze was the choice for dinner. We were seated at the lounge area before being invited to take the ‘purple walkway to heaven’. A stunning view that greeted us from the purple walkway. It was definitely a…

Buffet: Sala Rim Naam @ Mandarin Oriental Hotel, Bangkok

A boat ride? Yep, you’re treated to a short boat ride before your royal meal commences! As the Sala Rim Naam is situated across the river from the main hotel vicinity, don’t be surprised when the staff start directing you towards the port! The only Thai restaurant in Mandarin Oriental serves a royal spread of Thai…

Mr. Jones’ Orphanage @ Siam Centre, Bangkok

I’ve heard a lot about Mr Jones’ Orphanage and seen photos of its glorious dessert display. It is safe to say that this orphanage is the ultimate haven for my sweet tooth, I mean my teeth ache by just looking at their photos! Hedonistically decorated, this would have been the last place I would have associated to an orphanage….

Greyhound Café @ Siam Paragon, Bangkok

I’ve heard lots of great things about Greyhound, from their stylish clothes collections to their wonderful café. In fact, this was my very first stop when I touched down at Bangkok. The decor was eclectic, with thin pieces of cloth dangling from the ceiling, forming a budget art installation in the middle of the café. Our…

Foodiepink’s TOP 10 Must-Go Cafés in Seoul

I love Seoul for its café culture. It no longer boils down to the best cuppa, for me at least, but the story and character of a café that reveals what its owner may be. With dedicated café streets and countless awesome cafés in this dynamic metropolitan that retains its unique culture, I have put…

Hoho Myoll Café @ Seoul, Korea

Folks, pay attention to this one alright! This café is by far the most impressive and most memorable one I’ve ever been to. If you’re intending to café-hop in Seoul, Hoho Myoll is one stop that you mustn’t miss. It is not located at any famous café streets; in fact the nearest ‘café’ from it was Danji….

Thanks Nature Café [Sheep Café] @ Hongdae, Seoul

Thanks Nature Café or much better known as the sheep café was at the top of my go-to list, simply due to my adoration for sheep! Furthermore, where else could you get a cuppa with 2 fluffy white sheep frolicking beside you? The café is located at the basement of a building, so if you’re not…

“Coffee-drinking Cat” Café @ Samcheongdong, Seoul

If you happen to be afraid of cats like myself, this is a reassurance that there’re no live furry animals in this café. On the other hand, if you’re cat lover, don’t go away just yet, ‘cos this is one café that is worth a visit. The inviting storefront stands out amongst the endless options at Samcheongdong, thanks to…

Staycation: Marina Bay Sands Hotel Singapore

I suppose no one needs an introduction to the MBS Hotel since it’s one of the most iconic and prominent infrastructures in Singapore – also being the second Integrated Resort here. I’ve stayed at MBS a couple of times and I have to say that the crowd is just really bad, every single time. My check-in…

Danji Café @ Seoul, Korea

This café wasn’t on our to-go list but because we were wandering about the area for the longest time ever, nit-picking at every restaurant/café we walked by, that we got so tired we eventually settled on this cosy, family-run café. The restaurant space was really small – barely accommodating 15 people, so my best friend and I had…

The Hwawon @ Eight Seconds, Garosu-gil, Seoul [Korea Trip]

The beautiful facade, Holland-inspired, was the reason a second look was given. Its monotone design made the building stand out amidst the monotonous concrete two-storey buildings lined along the famous café street Garosu-gil. Even its name, Eight Seconds, instantly sounded magical (instead of ridiculous). Nestled behind huge potted plants is a café aptly named The…
