Amoy Hotel is situated in a unique location with a collection of shophouses dating back more than 170 years at Far East Square. It was once the landing site of Chinese immigrants arriving by boat to seek better fortunes and a better life in the far east. With the historically rich backdrop and a bustling location at the heart of CBD, Amoy Hotel is ready to give the guests an experiential glimpse into the Chinese Diaspora of years past. The first touch point for the guests will be the AMOY’s entrance, which is the Fuk Tai Chi Museum, a temple built to honour the gods for their safe voyage when our forefathers arrived in Singapore. can you spot your surname on this featured wall? Strong heritage items used in the past can be seen at the hotel lobby The experience continues into the interiors of the hotel where they are designed to mirror the life, love and tribulations of Singapore’s early Chinese immigrants. As the rooms is converted from the shophouses, no two rooms are …

Noticed this beautiful architecture that appeared along the Singapore River at Clarke Quay recently? It’s the newly opened Holiday Inn Express Clarke Quay, second in Singapore after the very first Holiday Inn Express at Orchard City. As a staycation lover, how can i miss this hotel right?! Thanks to Holiday Inn Express, i managed to go on a staycation there over the weekends!
Where would be a best location to go for a staycation where you get a wonderful seaview and get to see low-flying planes, yummilicious hawker food and mini pubs around the hotel area? Village Hotel Changi will just fit in nicely! Village Hotel Changi is located along the scenic Changi coastline, where Changi Village. Guest can take a bumboat ride from Changi Ferry Terminal which is directly opposite the hotel to visit the relatively untouched island of Pulau Ubin and the flora and fauna of the Chek Jawa Wetlands.
Sponsored Review I’m sure there are some of you out there that have to stay connected 24/7 due to the nature of your work but at the same time, you would like to be away from the office or you home, yet didn’t want to travel away out of Singapore right? Then I would recommend you to go for a Getaway Weekend Staycation at Oasia Hotel! Oasia Hotel Singapore is easily accessible to the Central Business District and shopping areas in the City. With the use of earthy tone colors throughout the hotel, your oasia experience begins once you set foot inside the hotel, an escape from the hustle and bustle of the city.
Sponsored Review Are you making any plans for the upcoming long holidays in May? Why not go on a staycation with your loved ones of friends? If you are one whom would like to save the hassle of making decision on what to do or what to eat, I would strongly recommend you to go for the Quincy’s Qool Weekend Staycation Package which includes you with the following All-Club Benefits!
This is really a backdated post which is supposed to be up before chinese new year, but… once again, due to hectic work, i’ve only managed to get it up now :X Anyway~ better than nothing right? lol So my christmas last year (now that sounds like so long ago) was spent at Carlton City Hotel, located in one of Singapore’s most exciting historical neighbourhoods.
After a S$30 million refurbishment, the former Paramount Hotel and Shopping Centre was rebranded Village Hotel Katong when Far East Hospitality took over operation in mid-February 2012. Was really excited and happy to go on a staycation there, somewhere out of the usual in a neighbourhood area. The 229-room Village Hotel Katong reflects the strong Peranakan heritage of the surrounding Katong and Joo Chiat district in Singapore which i personally quite like it ;) Was given a Club Room which is really spacious yet cosy enough.
WOOHOOO!!! Aug is coming soon and i’m so looking forward to it as first of all, the first day of AUG is my birthday, and i am going on 2 overseas trips!!! due to my annual ICT, i will be spending my birthday in camp instead, therefore i need to shift my birthday celebrations with my loved ones in advance. Special thanks to PARK ROYAL ON PICKERING as the venue sponsor for my [RELAJARSE] (read from the pic above for the meaning) birthday party with my BBFs and also TAWIAN BEER for the wondering fruit beer which all of use loved it so much! :D SO.. are you ready to check out how much fun we had and the awesome rooms at parkroyal on pickering?!
I Love Staycation! especially when everything is FREE (other than the money you pay for the room)!!! I’ve been hearing people saying about how great it is to go on a staycation at Quincy Hotel as everything is inclusive in the amount you pay for your room. You get free breakfast, lunch dinner and mini bar too! So we decided to make us of the holiday in may (vesak day) and experience it for ourselves :D
Sponsored Review What do you look for when coming to accommodation during your travel trips? I am sure most people goes for hotels right? Hotels can be rather pricey at times and if you are travelling alone or with a partner and would like to look for another alternative at a cheaper price, i guess a hostel will be good for you. Usually the first impression of a hostel will be very budget, very run down, not well maintained, have to share rooms with others etc, which is true as i have that impression too when it comes to hostel. BUT! after i went for my staycation at 5footway.inn Project Boat Quay, im quite impressed and that totally change my impression of a hostel.
Coming to the last entry of my 3D2N Staycation at Equarius Hotel. Read my Part 01 and 02 and check out how much fun we had with the facilities in the hotel and Universal Studios Singapore~! For our last day at the hotel, after breakfast, we rest for a while in the room before heading down to the pool again to enjoy the sun, the water, the last few hours of our stay.
Following on my day 1 at equarius hotel, today is the day that all of us are super excited about as we are heading to Universal Studios Singapore!!! finally like a dream come true for me as i always wanted to visit the theme park because one of the ride that i wanna go on is the Jurassic park water raft ride. You may not know this but i’m actually quite a big fan of jurassic park ahahaha~ one of the best movies that i will not get tired watching again and again. Okay enough said, here’s a pic that i took when i woke up in the morning from our balcony ;) CHIO right?!
Finally a long awaited staycation! This gotta be one of the reason of why i’m so looking forward to in MAY, a sponsored staycation by Playboy Fragrance to be spent together with my BBFs and my first visit to Universal Studios Singapore!!! woohoo~~ *throw confetti*
Wee~ It’s the festive seasons and i had a few awesome Christmas parties for the past 2 weekends with all my loved ones! :D Kicking off with the first celebration, we went on a staycation at Capri by Fraser, located just right beside Changi City Point! loved the ambience of the hotel. everything looks simple, clean, modern and the moment you stepped into the hotel, the tint of flower scent makes you feel really relaxed. Exactly what i’m looking for.. a relaxing staycation. By the way, for your info, this isn’t a sponsored staycation hor~ so what i wrote are really what i felt about this hotel. :)
This year, i organised a total of 2 birthday party, with 2 different themes, at 2 different location with 2 different groups of friends. You SHOULD have already read about my first party with my BBFs at hard rock hotel. If not, read it here “Party Like A Kpop Star”. The second birthday party was celebrated after my actual day as they were busy during that period of time, therefore i pushed it backwards. Booked a room at Amara hotel for the party, themed : SUMMER BLUE! whereby everyone have to come in BLUE!!! one of my favourite color~!
I’ve always wanted to hold a mini party in a nice hotel room with my loved ones the past few years, but due to budget constraint, i didn’t manage to do so. Finally this year i can have one party held in a hotel room! :D something im looking forward to and pretty excited about ;) Theme for the party was decided ard 2 months ago, which is “Party Like A Kpop Star” and in order to fit into this theme, i decided to book a room at Hard Rock Hotel ;) totally fit into the theme right? Right after deciding on the venue, we need some food to go along right? SO~~ i catered PERKIES for the party since all my friends loved it! :D *ps: we’ve been craving for it ever since the last time we tried it a few months ago~ Alright! So we have everything settled, the day for the party finally arrived!
