48 Hours in Singapore

Our second trip to Singapore was a whirlwind as we tried to fulfill our food cravings, shop, and attend a beautiful wedding. I noticed even with the pictures that I took this time; they were not as great because every capture was rushed. Thus, I have added some scenic sights of Singapore that I captured on my last trip with the recent food adventures from the weekend. You can also click here to see my first food trek to Singapore!

Start the day with poached eggs and kaya toast to give you enough energy to last till lunch time.

Eggs poached in the confines of its shell. Ya Kun Kaya Toast cracks the eggs for you so you can slurp away after a splash of soy sauce and a dash of pepper.

Enjoy the thin slices of toast that has Kaya Jam with slivers of salted butter.

A walk to the famous durian shaped Opera House is not far from the Fairmont hotel. Prepared to get sweaty from Singapore’s humidity.

Need to cool down? Take the SMRT to Orchard Road, the retail and entertainment hub of Singapore. The air conditioner is on full blast and malls are connected through underground walkways. Ion Orchard is one of the newer malls on Orchard.

After some retail therapy, go to one of the  food courts to try some yummy Singaporean staples. Sergeant General’s chicken rice is everywhere!  Food courts in the US cannot compare to the Singapore food courts.  Meals are prepared right in front of you and the variety of Asian cuisines are amazing.

Mini donuts for dessert at Sapporo Petit Doughnuts in Takashimaya.

A late afternoon snack for chocolate lovers. Awfully Chocolate sells cake by the weight. With a scoop of their dark chocolate ice cream and the cake slightly warmed, this snack is very rich and indulgent. With one bite, you can automatically tell that they use quality ingredients.

Clarke Quay has some of the trendiest night spots and of course Jumbo’s famous Chili Crab!

A view of Singapore’s beautiful nightscape is also a must. New Asia at the Stamford, a swissotel property, is a great place to enjoy a cocktail and the view.

A complimentary breakfast at Prego, within Fairmont, is a great way to start the day before we make our way back to Ho Chi Minh City.
