Restaurant Review - Loving hut , Joo Chiat

Joo chiat is rapidly becoming one of my favorite locales in Singapore. The vintage shop houses , winding alleys and quirky road side cafes makes this peranakan styled neighborhood a popular choice with the expats and locals alike .

Just this weekend, hubby and I had a strong craving for some hot and crispy Roti Parantha. A quick google search later we found that one of the best Roti Paranthas in Singapore came from a humble stall in joo chiat. We quickly jumped in a cab but upon reaching found it to be closed..much to our dismay. Hungry , we started walking around and chanced upon the 'loving hut', a brightly lit cafe that serves delicious yet healthy vegan cuisine. While we love our non-vegetarian fare, we decided to try vegan cuisine for a change and boy oh boy , did we like it!

Our visit to the Jurong Bird Park

Last weekend, my husband's family visited us from India and Australia respectively and we had a whale of a time taking them around Singapore. One of the places we visited was the Jurong bird park. We have been there before, but visiting it again provided a fresh new perspective. Famed as one of the popular tourist attractions in Singapore, the bird park is home to exotic species of birds and one of the world's largest free flying aviaries. So, one sunny afternoon, we stepped out and made our way to the land of colorful birds and avian creatures.

The very first thing you would notice as you enter the park are the gorgeous orchids blooming at every nook and corner. They are colorful, vivid and such a scenic  sight to behold! I, for one loved this orchid stem with purple orchids that rose up to the bright blue sky as it basked in the warm sunshine.

Pinnacle @ Duxton - Photowalk

As an avid photo enthusiast, I enjoy exploring the nooks and corners of Singapore. This city has so much to offer in the 'experience' department. Looking for a place immersed in history? Head to the vibrant lanes of Joo Chiat to witness the colorful peranakan shophouses . Keen to experience a little bit of mystical Arabia right here on our little red dot? Well then, Arab street has all that and more! The sparkling city lights beckon? Then, the Marina barrage is the place to go! I could go on and on but I'm sure, you get my drift :)

While, I have enjoyed every bit of these unique experiences on the ground, I wanted to go a tad bit higher. How high, you may ask? Well,  50 floors to be exact! So, when the opportunity came to visit the rooftop of the Pinnacle@Duxton, I instantly grabbed it! Heading up to one of the iconic HDB blocks in Singapore along with the panoramic views of the city, were reasons enough to grab my DSLR and head there on a sunny morning.
