where to next?

The lovely Miss Jenny is visiting Singapore from Hong Kong this weekend and I am so excited to see her!  I have been busily thinking about all the places I can potentially take her....

I have booked dinner for us on Saturday night at Piedra Negra. Jen loves Mexican + a good friend recommended this place. As yummy Mexican is hard to come by in Singapore, I am very excited to try it out!  For those Mexican food loving Brisbane readers, check out my friend's food blog (Brisbane Food Adventures) for a good read on her Mexican adventure.

Piedra Negra is around the corner from Haji Lane, which is one of my favourite streets in Singapore.  It's located in the heart of the Arab Quarter and filled with lots of quirky boutiques and vintage stores.  To find out more, read about Susie Bubble's (fashion blogger) visit to Haji Lane here

Haji Lane is also home to A Thousand Tales/Bar Stories (awesome furniture store and cafe by day and cocktail bar by night) so I think we will definitely be stopping by for a post dinner cocktail.  Cocktails at Nektar may also be an option.

Coffee/brunch at Kith Cafe (where the Mr and I find ourselves at least once every weekend) is a must - along with visiting our awesome bike designing friends, Shaun and Jac of Vanguard (they made/designed Betsy for me and are next door to Kith).  Perhaps more coffee and yummy truffle fries at 40 Hands is also in order with a slight detour to Books Actually (my fave Singapore book store) which is across the road... 

We are running out of meals as I would also love to take her to Kilo (am hanging out to try the food there), Sabio (a great little tapas place we discovered the other day with Andrea & Tilden), L'Entrecote for steak frites or another all time favourite, Wild Rocket for some Singapore fusion cuisine.   Bedrock is off the list as we are taking my lovely sis and bro-in-law there when they are visiting in June!

Hmmm, this seems to be revolving an awful lot around food.... (I haven't even mentioned all the delicious local/hawker food!)...  perhaps I should probably start thinking of some other activities!

Those are great things to do :) Perhaps, also try a walk in the Botanical Gardens with a picnic basket (early in the morning or late in the evening), sentosa for the beach, and Mei Yuen snow shaved ice desserts at Chinatown - temple street (great in this weather) http://am-klutz.livejournal.com/1055271.html Check out little india or chinatown. Actually, Singapore is all about eating and eating :P So You have nailed it right.
