Wineweek 167: Landing in Singapore

We have arrived! To our final destination on the years Tour de Asia – Singapore. Its also our last week of travel. I can count the days that are left with one hand, and tell people back at home – see you next week at work. It’s always nice to go back, but this time I don’t really know what I am going back to. Big changes at work, long story, wont go into it. We have also been sick for a whole week, the whole family (thus no post last Wednesday). So I have very little wine news to report. But I have had a chance to take a few pictures, and the coming (final) days of our trip will be epic. But since I haven’t been anywhere yet, I thought I would remind you of a few of my Singapore favorites. Cool to see that these places are still up and running, as many cafes and bars seem to have a fairly short lifespan. Continue reading “Wineweek 167: Landing in Singapore”

Singapore Cocktails Revisited

I have not been out in weeks. WEEKS! Family events, the flu and a new job has kept us indoors. And I am starting to get a little bit numbed. But there is no immediate salvation in sight. This weekend is going to be a home weekend as well, and we just need to rely on our own cellar to entertain us. In the lack of a nice restaurant environment, I thought I would revisit some of the great moments we had on our trip to Asia. To be more specific, our cocktail night out in Singapore. I just noticed, I had skipped the whole topic, even though I have great things to say about the new places we visited. So here we go, a dive back to Asia and the cocktail nights of Singapore.

Wineweek 113: Singapore in a Nutshell

In Finland, we have a saying – new year, new tricks. More concretely, we have today traveled from Singapore to Bangkok for the last leg of our annual trip. What started in Bangkok, will end in Bangkok. Seven full days to discover what is new in the city that have loved since the first time I set foot in it. The first round in Bangkok was just to slack off and to sleep off the jet lag, so we left all the new goodies to the coming week. I think definitely this will be the best part of our trip. I don’t like dwelling on last year, but since I took some photos, we can have a quick look back on our week in Singapore. It was filled with good food, coffee and some yummy cocktails.
