Review: Singapore’s Luxury Tallship, Royal Albatross

Docked along the waterfront of Sentosa, the Royal Albatross is a unique luxury tall ship that operates like an old-world ship. Batman fanatics may also be thrilled to know that the Royal Albatross was featured in ‘The Dark Knight’ (2008) as Bruce Wayne’s private yacht. The ship is about a 20-minute walk away from VivoCity if you are walking to Resort World Sentosa via the 700m long Sentosa Boardwalk. Our cruise started with apprehension as it started to rain just as we were pulling away from the docks of Sentosa. The crew were scurrying around to ensure that all passengers on board remained safe and dry despite the rain and heavy wind. But thank God that shortly after our voyage began, the rain came to a halt and the clouds began to clear up. The Royal Albatross was the perfect spot for photo ops, especially with the clear skies and kiss of a golden sunset. Shortly after we set sail, we approached the buffet line. The spread consisted salad, cold cuts, a variety of hot …

Food Review: Winestone @Mercure Singapore on Stevens

If you’ve been following us for a while, you would know that we love trying different foods and cuisines. So when we learned of Winestone, we were excited to try out their food as they serve a fair selection of Mediterranean dishes. Since opening its doors on the 22nd of January 2018, it has been an up and coming dining spot for couples and families alike. It is one of the many pods in the Oxley cluster surrounding Mercure and Novotel on Stevens. Winestone is aptly named as the name is derived from two prominent factors when dining at the establishment; they have a wide selection of wines and many of their meals are served on stone boards. Housing Mercure’s morning breakfast during the day, Winestone breaks off into an independent dining concept of its own after noon. We ordered a variety of different dishes to be shared amongst everyone on the table. To start, we were served an assortment of bread, such as their dark rye sour khubz and mini ciabatta bread, set above …

Beauty Review: Pixi Nourishing Sleep Mask

I was scrolling through Sephora’s phone app one day, when this Nourishing Sleep Mask caught my eye! The idea behind the Nourishing Sleep Mask is that it is used as the last step of your nighttime routine to “seal in” the products that you applied before it, like your serums and moisturiser. It provides a nutrient-rich veil of moisture while you sleep. The formula is packed with fatty acids to plump and regenerate, strengthening arganine , and fruit & flower oils to deeply soothe your skin. The treatment is supposed to leave your skin feeling silky-smooth to the touch and looking more plump. And the cherry on top? It’s paraben free too! So OF COURSE I had to put it to the test! (Can I still say… #IDidItForTheBlog?) I was excited to try this out as it was an opportunity for me to pamper my skin without having to put in that much effort. So here’s my first impression of the product… The smell was pleasant and nothing too overpowering. For some reason, I thought that it …

Food Review: Canopy @Bishan-AMK Park

Nestled among the lush greenery of Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park is Canopy Garden Dining. It is located at the part of the park between Bishan Road and Marymount Road, near the car park entrance along Ang Mo Kio Avenue 1 (just after Ang Mo Kio Street 32). The location itself is peaceful and unassuming, making it a great form of getaway from the bustling city whilst remaining accessible. It certainly doesn’t hurt that they serve up a wide range of brunch offerings to appease a variety of cravings. They have an alfresco dining area which immerses patrons in a garden dining experience amidst the integrated park space. The day that we visited Canopy was rather hot, so we opted to dine indoors instead. The interior itself is decked out with full-length glass windows allowing a generous dose of natural light to shine in (making it perfect for photos!) whilst giving you a view of the surrounding greenery. To cool us down from the hot weather outside, we ordered the green mint Italian Soda (S$7) and …

Food Review: Brewerkz @ Riverside Point, Singapore

Located in Clarke Quay along the Singapore River, Brewerkz has been serving authentic American cuisine since it was first established in 1997. The outlet has a great music playlist that gives off the perfect chill vibes for a good catch-up session with friends. Their high quality, award-winning craft beers also makes this microbrewery a popular spot for after-work drinks. We had the opportunity to try out some of the new lunch menu items at their Riverside Point outlet. Their set lunches are $16.50++ each and are available from 12pm – 3pm. The set comes with a choice of soup, Caesar salad, or house salad for starters, the main course, a soft drink and 1 scoop of homemade Chocolate, Vanilla, or Strawberry ice cream for dessert. And if you prefer a beer, you could always add $5++ for a pint of your choice! I don’t know about you, but I thought that it was quite a steal! We opted to have the soup for our starters. The Soup of the Day was Chicken Noodle Soup. Overall, …

Food Review: Miyama Café, Saigon

Miyama had us smitten from the start. Using organic ingredients from their garden in Dalat, their desserts have less sugar and doesn’t use and artificial colouring. So all the colouring in the desserts and food is natural. This allows you to indulge in their yummy desserts without the guilt. It’s been one year and half years since the opening of this specialty dessert café, and they have constantly been revamping their menu to better suit their customers. So don’t be surprised if the desserts that we mentioned are no longer available! The café is a modern Tokyo-styled café based in the centre of the bustling city of Saigon. The glass panes that encloses their minimalist space casts plenty of natural light into the café whilst providing you with a sense of escapism from the urban city. It is a rather tough gem to find as it is not located on the same floor as the rest of the eateries. It is situated on the 3rd floor, in the corner lot of Saigon Centre, right next to Levi’s. …
