In finishing off my (what feels like a supremely lengthy) trip to Japan, we had two Singapore stopovers (courtesy of Singapore Airlines): the first was 7 hours, the second 19 hours.
It’s not often I pay $47 for a lunch, but this was really worth it. To be fair, I havn’t had any lunches at a 3 Hat establishment here in Sydney but it’s fair to say I havn’t had anything which has impressed me as much as what I had here. Everything from the view, service and food was perfect.
I touched down in Singapore a day before everyone else, so I had a bit of time to explore. The first thing I did was go to Orchard Rd so I could find a shirt for the awards night. I somehow forgot to pack a shirt, so I was left with a suit and about 5 t shirts, what a disaster. Luckily my dinner was a bit more organised.
Even though we were primarily in Singapore for the Nuffnang Awards, we braved the heat and humidity and ate our way throughout Singapore as if we hadn’t eaten in two weeks. It’s a tough life, I know. We spent most our time at hawker centres.
Some of you might of been aware that we were recently nominated in the Best Food Blog category for the Nuffnang Asia Pacific blog awards for 2009. It came as a massive shock, considering how many good food blogs there are, not only in Australia, but also in Asia. We still consider ourselves quite below the pecking order as a food blog, but who could knock back a trip to Singapore to represent Australian bloggers ?
