Let me plan our date!
I love trying new cuisines as well as creative modern fare, but my all-time favourites would be Japanese and French cuisine, and sinful Singaporean food. Places that serve all-day breakfast also have a special place in my heart. The easiest way to my heart (and into my pants) is to bring me out for a delicious dinner/lunch/brunch date.
When it comes to alcohol, my tipple of choice is a fruity and clean Pinot Gris or a sweet Riesling. I've recently started to really enjoy Merlot and Shiraz. I am fond of Japanese whiskeys and gins, but please recommend new ones to me! I'm always on the lookout for new libations.
Below is my very brief guide to my favourite establishments in Singapore. If you would like for me to plan something special, let me know!
Shoukouwa at One Fullerton: Iconic and a must-visit for me. I love it!
The Tippling Club: Avant-garde food and cocktails! I’ve become their regular.
Ki-sho (Japanese Omakase + Sake): If you’re an uni lover like me, this place prides itself on serving up loads of it.
Kinki at Customs House: Great bar, great restaurant! Fantastic Japanese food.
Manhattan Bar at Regent Hotel: Recently voted as the top bar in Singapore for innovative cocktails
Jigger and Pony: A new favourite haunt!
Candlenut: Let me introduce my heritage to you through food.
Odette at National Gallery Singapore: Let's take a break from walking through the galleries and indulge in a delightful French meal.
NOX Dine in the Dark: The most unique dining experience where you dine in complete darkness. I love that this place only hires blind/visually impaired staff.
Ginza Sushi Ichi at Marriott Tang Plaza Hotel: Seated at the counter, we enjoy a delectable lunch/dinner while the chef expertly whips up our meals before our very eyes. Omakase + sake pairing is recommended!
on my wishlist
Waku Ghin by Tetsuya Wakuda (Modern European-Japanese cuisine)
The Kitchen at Bacchanalia (Chefs previously from The Fat Duck!)
Boca (Portugese cuisine)
For my fellow foodies - please feel free to suggest other places as well! I'm very open to eating nearly anything and everything.
cultural events and performances
Ticket information is linked below. My preferences are Cat 1 or box tickets - experiences like these are worth the splurge!
12 April 2019: Singapore Symphony Orchestra - Rachmaninov Piano Concerto No.2. This piece is admittedly one of the pieces that I could never really master, and my masochistic streak demands that I watch one of the most brilliant pianists perform it perfectly. :P
27 April 2019: Singapore Symphony Orchestra - Mendelssohn Violin Concerto.
24 April to 26 May 2019: Phantom of the Opera. Dinner and a classic show, before we make our own music of the night.
21 July to 11 Aug 2019: Aladdin the Musical.
