Singapore, Gardens by the Bay, The White Rabbit, Altitude, Oxwell & Co and The Providore

Singapore

Every time we drive from the airport to our hotel in Singapore city, we see the amazingly beautiful skyline with cultivated trees and organicly formed buildings. We decided to make a trip to this wonder of nature: Gardens by the Bay. Gardens by the Bay is part of a strategy by the Singapore government to transform Singapore from a "Garden City" to a "City in a Garden". The stated aim is to raise the quality of life by enhancing greenery and flora in the city. It is a is a nature park spanning 101 hectares (250 acres) of reclaimed land in central Singapore, adjacent to the Marina Reservoir. The park consists of three waterfront gardens: Bay South Garden, Bay East Garden and Bay Central Garden. It was a little bit like an amusement park for us but still it's worth a visit. We had lunch in de Flower Dome at the Pollen bistro. After walking around for a couple of hours in the gardens we had a small snack on tiny stools around a tiny table at Satah At The Bay. We felt like two Snowy Whites who visited the dwarfs ;-).

In the evening we wanted to have dinner at The White Rabbit. The White Rabbit is a restaurant housed in the beautifully restored 1930s Ebenezer chapel. Inspired by Alice in Wonderland, The White Rabbit’s verdant surroundings and rich history takes guests into a world of whimsy and wonder, away from life in the concrete jungle. Beside that they have The Rabbit Hole. This is the chic outdoor bar of The White Rabbit that lets you unwind amid the lush greenery of Dempsey, complete with animal-themed topiary. But when we arrived at The White Rabbit a private party was going on. It was all about the Food Hero 2016 Finales and organized by the AFC network. We were not invited but we had a briljant sollution: party crashing! We got all drinks and food for free and joined the invited visitors on the red carpet where pictures were taken. How cool! When we left the party we received a goody bag with a nice notebook and a set of stainless steel measuring cups. Party crashing: the act of attending an invitation-only event when not invited…we can deal with that from now on ;-)! We had some 'attitude drinks’ afterwards at the Altitude bar. The entree was too expensive, the drinks were too expensive and the bartenders were very rude. To much attitude at the Altitude! Only the view was amazing.

The next morning we had breakfast at The Providore at the Mandarin Gallery. The pleasure of discovering, creating and sharing good food is what the Providore is all about. Good food in all its forms; wholesome, traditional, innovative, nurturing and nourishing. A nice philosophy. Be aware when you order breakfast, the portions are small. The staff is very kind and willing to help you and patiently explain the menu.

At Ann Siang Hill we explored Oxwell & Co. Oxwell & Co was conceived by a group of Brits pining for their local pub while embracing all things Singaporean. Here in this heritage three-storey shophouse, sitting in the heart of Singapores Chinatown, you will find a slice of British comfort from good old fashioned hospitality to food and cocktails. The Oxwell experience is made up of the 4000 sq ft space presenting each floor as a destination in its own right: the bar for refreshing tipples on the first floor the rustic yet elegant dining room on the second floor; and a private function room on the third floor that is reminiscent of a drawing room complete with eccentric British touches. The rooftop houses Oxwells own organic rooftop herb garden, used by the restaurant and bar for food and cocktails. To be ‘Oxwelled”, try there specialty: the signature home-made Gin & Tonic. That’s the real Oxwell Experience!

Bangkok, fruitless searching, pampered to the max and exploring a luxury food court

with No Comments
Bangkok

What if you wanted to find a place and you couldn't find it? That was the thing with vintage shop/restaurant and bar Moose. We took a taxi for an hour but after some struggles we arrived at the place...but it didn't exist anymore. So never go to find Moose in the Sukhumvit area, because it is gone. We wandered around the streets in Sukhumvit to find a nice place to eat some Thai food afterwards...but unfortunately we saw only Japanese, Korean en Western restaurants. We took another taxi, a one hour drive back again and ended up in a tiny street food restaurant opposite of our hotel where we finally had a nice cold Singha beer and lovely Pad Thai. Traveling is searching, wandering and exploring. Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose.

The next day we left the busy world far behind us by visiting the Oasis Spa in the heart of Sukhumvit in the middle of Bangkok. What a great place. Bangkok Oasis Spa is a dream place for those searching for a relaxing escape. The charming spa is dedicated to soothing sensations and blends gracious and gentle service with wonderful treatments. The healing ambience of its delicate decorations and stunning surroundings only adds to a truly exotic world of beauty, serenity and pleasure. We loved our one hour aromatherapy Hot Oil Massage. This massage perfectly combines the best of Western Swedish massage therapy and Eastern Thai massage techniques along with Aromatherapy. Make a reservation because this place is really popular. It is high end but worth the money!

Totally relaxed we got a free ride from the Oasis Spa to the luxury mall, the EM District, next to the Phrom Phong BTS Station on Bangkok’s Sukhumvit Road. It is an ambitious multi-billion baht retail project comprising three different luxury shopping malls. The District EM is worth a visit, no matter what! Because it includes the most luxury clean food court we've ever seen, the Quartier Foodhall! You have to buy special coins to pay for the food and you can choose from all kinds of Thai Food in separate booth's. Wander around all those choices of food and decide what to eat after having seen all those delicious kinds of food. The EM District is the latest business district and tourist destination of the three world-class projects: The Emporium, The EmQuartier and The EmSphere. We only took a glimpse of the EMQuartier project, but you can spend hours and hours exploring the three projects if you want.

After this luxury mall we had a short visit to the MBK mall to find a power bank, gadget girls as we are. On our way to the electronic gadgets we saw a nice wigg that Margré tried on. The staff of the shop was waiting patiently until they demanded after a short while that they needed the wigg for their mannequin doll. 

Never a dull moment with DDTS ;-)!

Shanghai with a touch of Italy, America, France and China

Shanghai

Fifty km away from Shanghai, you will find a village called Zhujiajiao. Zhujiajiao is like Venice in Italy. It is a village on the outskirts of Shanghai, located in the Qingpu District and was established about 1,700 years ago. The population of Zhujiajiao is about 60,000. We took a taxi to this town but there are bus services as well. It is said that to visit Zhujiajaio without seeing the bridges means that you have not really been to Zhujiajiao at all! The bridges are distinctive and old, built during the Ming and Qing Dynasties. The old town is connected by 36 delicate spans in different shapes and styles, from wooden to stone to marble. And don't miss the Fangsheng Bridge. It is the longest, largest and tallest stone bridge. We took a short boat tour through the small canals. It's a tourist trap but still nice to experience. The village contains a lot of small shops and tiny restaurants. If possible, avoid the weekends and Chinese holidays because than the village will be fully packed with tourists.

The day after our visit to Zhujiajiao we went to the flagship store of Dragon Fly Therapeutic Retreats in the French Concession district in Shanghai. You can relax with high quality, affordable but luxurious massages. First we tried to have a massage at the Peninsula but that was too expensive. A good alternative is the Dragon Fly. It is absolutely worth a visit but be aware that it is not cheap. Their treatments are excellent! Next to this great spa we had lunch at Al's Diner after our treatments. Al's is not really a Chinese hotspot but based on an American diner. The setting is great. There's a couple of tables outside where you can sit, relax and enjoy the French Concession street life. We wandered around in the French Concession and visited hip artistic small shops with fashion, bags, books and jewelry. It is a nice mix of eastern and western influences.

Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial Hall is located at the heart of Taipei City. I woke up late, but caught the last few moments of closing of the gates and retiring the national flag for the day. The guards ceremony is precision at it's best! The area is large but a wonderful place to stroll. I would suggest a twilight visit to capture day and night when the memorial building becomes illuminated. Here I met my new Taiwanese friend named Annie and had some drinks, food and laughs! A good way to practise her English, and mine! 

After this great visit I went to Shilin Night Market and bought sneakers and a furry keychain (It's a fashion thing, don't ask). There are a lot of night markets in Taipei. Most are open nightly and offer a variety of snacks, clothing and fun accessories.

The next day I visited the Taipei Fine Arts Museum within walking distance of the crew hotel and located in Taipei Expo Park. It's the most popular art exhibition hall, hosting a wide variety of international and Taiwanese art. I found the paintings a little bit bizarre, compared to the other parts of the exhibition. Overall I had fun and you can easily spend half a day here!

This time in Los Angeles I decided to go to the Venice Art & Collectables Flea Market on the parking of the Venice High School on Venice Boulevard. This outdoor flea market provides vintage jewelry, clothing & wares on the 2nd Saturday of every month. There's free parking and it is very easy to park your car in the vicinity of the market. I bought an amazingly nice, old chewing gum machine this time. What a gem!

After the market I went to Venice Beach and had a glimpse of Muscle Beach, but due to the June Gloom there was not much to see. June Gloom is a southern Californian term for a weather pattern that results in cloudy, overcast skies with cool temperatures during the late spring and early summer. It is most common in the month of June.

I visited a small vintage clothing market on my way to the beach. This market had a clothing truck instead of a food truck, very funny. I parked in a parking lot with an extraordinarly overrated price of fifteen dollars near Venice Beach. No matter if you stay for half a hour or the whole day you have to pay this amount. Totally different prices at Manhattan Beach. I spent a couple of hours on Venice but it is not my cup of tea. Manhattan Beach is my thing, so later on I finally went to my favorite Manhattan spot and was happy to be back home. Enjoying beach life and sunset...feeling home abroad.

San Francisco versus Hong Kong

Desiré

If you're going to San francisco....rent a bike! That's what I did. Pacific Bicycle is a professional bike shop, and has an even more professional team. A friendly guy set me up on a Hybrid bike just after I landed in San Francisco. Quick checkout, free lock and a free helmet... didn't wear it! Okay, I know Safety is important and San Francisco has mountains and isn't as flat as The Netherlands, but still.

After I was done shopping at Whole foods and Target I followed my way to the Piers.They are located north of the Ferry Building and feature unique dining, retail and over an acre of public waterfront access. On clear days when there isn’t a lot of fog on the water you can see the Golden Gate Bridge from a distance while visiting Pier 39. Unfortunately that wasn't the case for me.

Time to have a quick bite...riding a bike makes you hungry! Salt House is a great gem in downtown San Francisco. It has great atmosphere, food and very innovative dishes made with fresh ingredients. What really stood out was the service, thanks to Taylor, the friendly bartender. And after enjoying a delicious meal it was time to catch some z's!

Margré

Hong Kong, a city that never never sleeps! The skyline of Hong Kong is fantastic. Visit a rooftop bar to have a nice view over the city, especially during sunset. It is up to you to choose to have a view of Hong Kong island or on the opposite of the river, to have a view of the main land.

Only on wednesday evenings you can visit the Hong Kong Jockey Club at Happy Valley for horse races. It is one of the most famous horse racing venues in the world. This famous racing place is situated in the middle of the Metropolis of Hong Kong island, surrounded by sky scrapers. It is a fantastic happening with thousands of people who bet on one or more horses. The green field will be prepared race after race and meanwhile people are standing in line to bet on the racing horses. I bet on four horses and one of them won the race! Music, drinks, performances…it is all in the game. Don’t hesistate to ask people which horse you have to bet on. They are more than willing to help you!

Le Boudoir in Soho is a nice pit stop after you counted your 'winning money’ from the races ;-). Le boudoir is a delightfully conceived cocktail lounge, evoking the seductive opulence and glamour of an 18th Century French palatial residence. 

If you want window shopping, Hong Kong is the place to be. For something different go to D-mop. D-mop is a very hip and stylish fashion shop where you can find a lot of unique brands for sale. They have not only fashion, but also books, music and accessoires with a modern twist. If you want to have a unique piece of clothing it is absolutely worth a visit. It is not cheap, but if you want to be original, I think you are more than willing to pay for it.

Bangkok, high in the sky, Vanilla tasting, relaxing at Health Land and a spectacular river view

with No Comments
Bangkok

We found ourselves right on top of the swimming pool on a glass floor at Long Table restaurant. It's situated on the 25th floor of the Column Tower. Long Table opened its doors in 2008 and has become one of the city's top hotspots. The main room features a 25 meter teak table, which can seat up to 70 people and is the world's longest dining table. We had a table for two on the outside instead of sitting at the long table and had a lovely view over Bangkok City companied by a bright moon. Both the food and the service were excellent and we tipped the waiter extra for that because it was more than worth it! The official name of the long table is: The Long Table of Krung Thep Mahanakhon Amon Rattanakosin Mahinthara AyuthayaMahadilok Phop Noppharat Ratchathani Burirom Udomratchaniwet Mahasathan Amon Piman Awatan Sathit Sakkathattiya Witsanukam Prasit. So practise before you make a reservation for it ;-)! A reservation in advance is recommended, especially during the weekend.

The next day we went to Vanilla Garden in the Ekamai 12 area in Sukhumvit. The relaxing atmosphere of the cafe with a view of a garden inside the compound makes it a favorite spot for locals and foreigners. The Vanilla Bakeshop became an instant hit since 2014 and transformed into a famous hang-out spot for all Thai trendsetters and celebrities. We had the privilege to sit outside in the sun and we enjoyed our lunch with an open faced sandwich with salmon, topped with salmon roe and drinks served in hip jars of course ;-). Unfortunately the book store in the Vanilla Garden has closed its doors some time ago. The bookstore was the main reason to check out this place for us. But it is still worth a visit to have a relaxed lunch in the garden.

By chance we found a very clean health spa, Health Land, in the neighborhood. It's a great spa where you can have all sorts of body massages, facials and foot reflexology at affordable prices. We chose a one hour foot massage and we relaxed to the max!

Full of energy, after this spa treatment, we dressed up to go to Sala Rattanakosin to have dinner. It cost us two taxi's to reach this hotel because taxi drivers always say yes but don't even understand where you want to go. The food was not really special but the view of Wat Arun on the opposite side of the river was so beautiful that we absolutely recommend this place. We ended our luxury trip in style with fire works. We pampered ourselves thoroughly in Bangkok with roof top views, good food and drinks, hip places to spot and a spa on top of that. It fits us, that's for sure!

Singapore mood sling, wanderlust in little India, Arab street, Orchard road, high tea at Raffles, the Marina Bay Sands and visiting Dempsey Hill

Singapore

We visited hotel Wanderlust the day after we arrived in Singapore. Housed in a 1920's building in Little India, Wanderlust is an experimental boutique hotel showcasing a diverse range of fun themes. It includes restaurant Cocotte, but unfortunately it was closed from 2.30 pm till 6.30 pm. We couldn't even get a coffee or a glass of wine. But luckily we could have a glimpse at some hotel rooms, thanks to the cleaning staff. We had lunch at Roots later on, a little bit further down the street. But we were still disappointed that we couldn't have the 'Cocotte experience'.

We took an Uber taxi to Arab street where we wandered around while it was raining cats and dogs. While Little India is memorable for its fragrances, it’s the vibrant colours of the shops of the Arab Quarter that stick to the memory. Textile stores and outlets selling Persian carpets are the most prominent, but you’ll also see leather, perfumes, jewellery and baskets for sale. Haji Lane is a street full of tiny shops. Young people frequent the shophouses along this lane for the independent fashion boutiques and Middle Eastern cafes.

Orchard Road, Asia’s most famous shopping street, is home to fashion favourites, specialist stores and loads of other lifestyle choices. Who'd have thought that over 150 years ago, Orchard Road was just a small lane lined with fruit orchards, nutmeg plantations and pepper farms. Today, Orchard Road is flanked by iconic shopping malls, restaurants, hotels and entertainment choices for every taste and budget. We had a small bite at Wolf Burgers, situated in a hip indoor food market in the Suntec City, later on.

Two days later we booked a high tea at Raffles. Serving high tea for more than one hundred years, Raffles’ high tea has an old world charm and a real sense of occasion to it. We ordered two glasses of champagne as well. Be aware that it will cost you a lot of money, but it is worth a visit! You have to book in advance while it is full (high tea) house every day!

We had a very nice view at the sunset on the rooftop bar of the Marina Bay Sands. It offers a breathtaking city-skyline view not found at any other Singapore hotel. The world's largest rooftop pool stretching 150 metres across Sands SkyPark. Unfortunately the pool is accessible only to hotel guests, but we did have a glimpse of it.

The last day of our visit in Singapore we had lunch at PS Café. PS Café is located on Dempsey Hill and specializes in homemade cakes such as chocolate fudge cakes, sticky date cake, pecan pie, florida key lime pie as well as coffee. The cafe offers indoor as well as outdoor seating, where you can star-gaze while sipping coffee. We had a delicious salad on the terras and got loads of mosquito bites for free. A nice Singapore souvenir to complete our Singapore mood sling ;-)!

Seoul, architecture in Dongdaemun, street murals in Ihwa and Gangnam style in Sinsa-dong

Seoul

On our way from Amsterdam to Seoul we had former speed skater Gerard van Velde on board of our airplane. He won an Olympic gold medal in 2002. The good old days came back when we talked to him. What a nice guy he is.

After a long flight we arrived in Seoul with a time difference of plus eight. Seoul is a city with so much to offer that you might not know where to start. But we've been here often so we could leave the cultural highlights behind us because we already visited them. We were curious about the new Dongdaemun Design Plaza, designed by Zaha Hadid. She was the first female recipient of the Pritzker Architecture Prize, architecture's equivalent of the Nobel Prize. The building is fantastic. Zaha Hadid got the inspiration form the ever-changing, dynamic movements that occurs in the Dongdaemun area from dawn to dusk.

We walked via the old Fortress Wall to the district were you can find the most beautiful murals. It is called Ihwa Mural Village. Ihwa Mural Village is located less than a 10-minute walk uphill from the buzzing Daehakno area. As you head up the slopes of Mt. Naksan, the noise and crowds give way to fresh air and gorgeous, expansive views of the city, but also to something unexpected: street art. We saw a lot of locals renting old Korean school uniforms and walking around in them, posing for pictures in front of the murals. First we thought they were wearing their own uniform but we talked with some of them and figured out it was just a dress up party instead ;-).

It is easy traveling by subway, so after the Ihwa Mural Village we took the subway to Sinsa-dong. Sinsa-dong has become increasingly popular over the past couple of years with the city's trendsetters, fashionistas and foodies. There are so many nice tiny hip shops, but also shops of high end brands and nice little cafe's and restaurants in the little streets behind the main road. We ended up in the chique Elbon the Table. It is a modern European restaurant located in Gangnam-gu. The restaurant itself is located on the second floor and a high end store with luxury bags with the same name is on the ground floor. Desiré was freaking out when she saw all those nice bags! Unfortunately it was a little bit to expensive to buy a small Celine bag just for fun ;-)!

We loved to be back in Seoul. It is such a vibrant and hip city to wander around. There are so many things to do and see, so we will be back. We promise!

Shanghai and her mini me meets Lost (in) Heaven

with 2 Comments

Shanghai is China's largest metropolis. The city that never sleeps. They work on it twenty four hours a day, seven days a week during rain, snow or shine! We visited Shanghai a couple of days before China's New Year will take place. The year 2016 will be the year of the monkey. After we arrived late in the afternoon we decided not to sleep, due to the time difference. We went out to have a glimpse of the city instead. We took a taxi. Be aware that most of the older taxi drivers can't understand or read English. So, have the address you want to go to written in the Chinese language because otherwise you will not reach you destination.

The next day we discovered a great store in the Xiantidi Shopping Mall. It is called Pinla3d. The store, the first of its kind in the city, is offering a 1:1 life-size replica for people who want to have a life-like portrait of themselves (a mini-me) or of their loved ones. The store offers visitors 3D body scanning and printing. Scanning only takes three to five minutes and you can choose the right size for your clone and even an outfit! You have to wait two weeks before your replica is ready to take home from the store. These life sized, ‘Mini-me's’ aren’t cheap, costing $28,500 each. But if you’ve got the cash then why not indulge in the ultimate selfie and go get yourself a ceramic clone? Or buy a small mini-me. That will cost you around $200.

With the easiest and cheapest way to travel through Shanghai, the subway, we went to the French Concession district to Yongfu Lu and checked out the lovely spot of Lolo Love Vintage. In this shop there are gorgeous items from decades gone. Such as shoes, jewelry, hats, ties, dresses and crockery. The sprawling space of Yongfu Lu is full of nostalgic glamour and kitsch trinkets, such as typewriters and toy dolls, while standout pieces adorn mannequins or decorate the walls. Lolo Love Vintage focus on the ’20s-’40s period.

We changed from the period of the 20s-40s into modern times and had lunch at the chic boutique hotel The Waterhouse at South Bund. Set in a converted warehouse dating from the 1930s. Here, the tans of unfinished wood and grays of burnished brick emit a pleasing warm ambiance to have a nice but little bit overpriced lunch. After lunch we walked along the Bund. One of the most recognisable landmarks in Shanghai today. There is a distinct contrast between the old and classical Bund at Puxi. On the other side of the river are the sky scrapers and modern towers at Lujiazui, Pudong, the financial center of Shanghai and China. It is hard to imagine that a small fishing village would one day grow into this magnificent city!

During our walk along the Bund it snowed so we were freakin cold and wet. We were happy we could settle at Lost Heaven to have dinner afterwards. With its low lighting and minority-inspired designs, Lost Heaven sets the mould for Shanghai-based Yunnanese restaurants. But use your flashlight of your mobile phone to see what's on the menu ;-)! They do relatively authentic Yunaan food, and if you wanna do pre- or post-dinner drinks they have a really nice terrace on the roof. Prices are reasonable for the location and views.
