Being a Tourist in Singapore

Posted in Fashion, Interest, Life by thisisanexperiment on June 8, 2010

This weekend, I indulged in a weekend get-away at a boutique hotel located in Tiong Bahru. I accidentally deleted the photo I took of our room, but the picture (above) from Link Hotels’ website is a good and pretty accurate illustration of our room. We had booked the Superior room but were upgraded to the Executive Deluxe Room which features a Queen sized bed and is a tad larger than the Superior. For the price we paid, it’s not a bad deal at all. I regret to say that they didn’t deliver our daily newspaper and did not clear the very full trash-bins before we checked in.

Facing the bed, is a dresser, an LCD tv, your usual closets, safe, and mini-fridge.

The hotel actually comprises 2 refurnished buildings on each side of the road that are connected by a ‘link’ bridge. Hence, the name ‘Link Hotel’.

The best part about the hotel is actually its location. Right smack near all that glorious art-deco buildings. There’s just something about those white washed low-level buildings that appeals to me. I could see myself living there, in that quiet neighbourhood. It’s a 2-3 minutes leisurely stroll away from Tiong Bahru market where we had those famous chwee kuehs (rice cakes). Sinfully good. It’s perfectly soft and chewy at the same time, and I love the spicy crunchyness of the radish-topping-thingy.

There’s also plenty of old school and modern convenience stores around to get snacks, and plenty of buses that will take you to Clarke Quay or Zouk, if you want/need to attend a birthday party or two. A busride and a walk away is Ann Siang. Outfit shot and random photos ensue.

    The design on the ceiling with lights seems like too many electricians at one spot. (Like too many cooks…..). But it’s cute. I felt at home during my travel and the accommodation in Singapore was convenient.
