Pan Pacific Singapore Sunday Champagne Brunch at Edge Restaurant – Revamped

[Media Invite]

Pan Pacific’s Edge Sunday Champagne Brunch has been given a revamp and now boasts two activity sessions – a cooking demo and a cocktail making demo. So instead of just stuffing your face for those few hours, you now get to take a break and learn a thing or two from the experts. From 1pm-1.30pm, the inhouse mixologist will impart the techniques required to make your own cocktails at home. From 2pm-2.30pm, learn how to cook highlight dishes from the buffet spread, such as Coriander Crab Cake with Curry Mayo, or Sticky Date Pudding.

Shangri-La Hotel Singapore Grand Suite

Did you read my previous post on how to maximise your staycation and notice the pretty pictures accompanying the staycation study slides? Those are pictures of the Shangri-La hotel in Singapore. In fact, the Brand Expedia staycation event was held in Shangri-La Hotel’s Grand Suite. And they’re not being dramatic in naming the room the Grand Suite, because it is literally very spacious! Check out the features of the room, and scroll down for more pictures.

  • Dimension: 250 sqm / 2,690 sqf interiors, with a 75 sqm / 807 sqf balcony
  • Commanding city views
  • Access to the Horizon Club Lounge (executive lounge).
  • Marble-clad bathroom with bathtub and separate glass-enclosed shower (and a separate toilet for guests)
  • Spacious living and dining areas and separate bedroom
  • Private gym and sauna room
  • Butler Service.

I am told this room costs around S$4,000 per night, which is pretty eye-watering by normal standards. However, if you were to treat the Grand Suite as an event venue, the costs might start to work out. $4,000 is of course on the high side for an event venue of 250 sqm but this is a unique venue in a sense. And imagine if you were parents throwing a birthday party for your kid, or a couple having an engagement party / solemnization, at the end of the day you can crash out on the bed and have a “free” staycation!

First of all, if you’ve one of the 36% of the population who have never gone on a staycation,  know that you are in the minority! You may feel uncomfortable about going on a staycation, or wonder what’s the big deal about it, but give it a chance because you just might love it so much you might become one of those frequent staycationers who average 4 staycations a year!

If you love Pororo Park, you’ll be glad to know that sister outlet Tayo Station has recently opened late August 2018 at Downtown East in Pasir Ris!
