Staycation at the Peranakan-inspired Village Hotel Katong

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.

Maybe after taking these drugs, all your problems will be solved, all your worries will be gone and you will lead a happier life? NO! These drugs cannot …
