Travelogue: Slovakia – Bratislava & Poprad

Our trip to Bratislava continued from Cesky Krumlov with a private tour with CK Shuttle that includes a stopover at Wachau Valley, Austria (7050 Kč). The car was ready for us by the time we arrived at the stipulated meeting time and the rather lean driver lifted both our luggages and walk as though they were as light as a feather. The friend and I looked at each other, impressed

Our ride

The drive was scenic, much safer this time, less motion sickness as well. If there is one thing I learnt from this entire trip, I realised I am prone to car sickness quite easily. =/ We were given a choice to stop by Melk but decided to spend time at Dürnstein instead but now that I think of it, perhaps we should have given it some time at Melk as well cos there was really nothing much to see at Dürnstein =/

Travelogue: A Peek Into Czech Republic; Karlovy Vary & Cesky Krumlov

Our trip to Czech Republic started with the town of Karlovy Vary, which is widely known as a spa town with numerous spring resorts and impressive colonnades. It is believed that if you drink the sulphurous water from spouted ceramic cups, your heath will be restored (beats seeing numerous doctors). To how much truth to that holds, I don’t know lah. Perhaps this makes a good chance to try and find out. Ha

Anyways we flew by Turkish airlines, transited at Istanbul before flying into Prague. The colleague has been pestering me on the reviews of Turkish Air so here it is. The flight was smooth though I didn’t really like their seats. It was uncomfortable for me. Flight entertainment was pretty okay. I managed to catch Lala Land! The food was meh. But you can look forward to their free amenities pouch!

Foxhole Cafe – Cozy Cafe at Hougang Midtown

There is a new cafe in the neighbourhood. Foxhole Cafe, an extension of The Pourover Bar is located at Hougang Midtown or otherwise previously known as Hougang Plaza. The place is still pretty empty with some spaces still up for lease. Decided to go down for brunch one day to see what this space got to offer

Hong Kong Wanton Noodle @ Plaza Singapura

Located at the basement of Plaza Singapura, this Wanton noodle place by Itacho Sushi aims to give Singaporeans a taste of authentic Hong Kong Wanton Noodles. This probably isn’t the most inspiring name and you might just walk past the restaurant without giving a second glance. The interior mimics what you typically see in a Hong Kong char chang teng with bright colours and wooden furnishing. The menu is a pretty no-brainer with wanton/dumplings as its main draw and some rice and congee selection as well

Botanico at The Garage – Beautiful Food at Botanic Gardens

Botanico, helmed by Chef Antonio Oviedo occupies the second level of The Garage, a white-washed colonial building in Botanic Gardens. Dining here feels like discovering a hidden find amidst the lush greenery just cos it’s rather ulu. We got in by cabbing and wells, we got out by cabbing as well. Though I have to admit the space is beautiful, makes the perfect place to hold a wedding. The interior is minimalist and green with an outdoor bar area that is the perfect place to chill
