Hotel G Singapore – Cosy rooms and great location

[Sponsored Staycation]

When it comes to staycations, every hotel paints a different story. Some hotels offer all the bells and whistles for an ultimate pampering session. Some hotels offer numerous facilities, allowing you to maximise every corner of the property without ever leaving. For some hotels, it’s location location location. Recently, I had the opportunity to check out one such hotel with a fabulous location right in the heart of Singapore’s Civic, Museum and shopping district! Scroll down to find out more!

Cirque du Soleil Kurios – Cabinet of Curiosities is a must watch!

A few days ago, I caught my very first Cirque du Soleil performance. The name Cirque du Soleil has been around for 3 decades, but due to various reasons including costs (it costs a pretty penny!), I’ve never been able to watch one until recently. If you’re new to Cirque du Soleil, and have the impression that they return to Singapore every couple of years or so, note that it’s not actually the same show returning. The current one being featured at Bayfront is Kurios – Cabinet of Curiosities and is Cirque du Soleil’s 35th production since starting in 1984.

If you’ve never watched a Cirque du Soleil performance, now is the best chance because I am told that Kurios – Cabinet of Curiosities is one of the better performances around. A Cirque du Soleil performance is not just your average circus show with acrobats and death defying acts. It’s so much more than that. It’s music, it’s theatre, its drama, it’s beautiful costumes and of course heart-stopping jaw-dropping acts, all beautifully weaved together in a fantasy storyline and whimsical stage props. Speaking of props, there are 426 props in Kurios, the most of any production in Cirque du Soleil’s history.

Fort Canning Park Playground (Jubilee Park) opens!

NParks has been on a roll, unveiling mega playground after playground in Singapore in recent years. You might have heard of the playground at Admiralty Park (opened in 2017) which boasts a whopping 26 slides! Everyone’s favourite East Coast Park also now features a playground with a huge climbing structure as well as inclusive play elements at Marine Cove (where McDonald’s is), after a complete overhaul was completed in 2016. There’s also a small playground and suntanning decks at Raintree Cove. Even the UNESCO World Heritage inscribed Singapore Botanic Gardens has added an extension to the popular Jacobs Ballas Children’s Gardens. Just this year alone, they have built new playgrounds at Hort Park, Jurong Lake Gardens and the latest one at Fort Canning Park.

Jewel Changi Airport Cafes (Full list)

Have you been to see Jewel Changi Airport yet? I must say this building is pretty amazing and has literally been the talk of the town and on everyone’s Instagram feeds in the past few days. Don’t worry if you didn’t manage to get the preview tickets, because Jewel opens officially to the public on 17 April 2019. Also, don’t be too afraid of the crowd. Yes, it is crowded but Jewel is SO HUMONGOUS, it’s easy to find spaces where there isn’t a crowd.

There is still space to find a seat at most cafes and restaurants because firstly there are so many, more than 280 F&B outlets, and secondly, most people are there to just take in the sights and of course get that perfect shot of the mesmerising HSBC Rain Vortex. Don’t you call it a fountain or even a waterfall because those words do not accurately describe its scale and magnificence. This is the world’s tallest indoor waterfall at 40m so give it its due respect and call it the Rain Vortex.

The only place where I thought it was truly crowded without an empty seat in sight was the lower two basement floors housing most of the casual eateries. But there are many other F&B’s dotted around Jewel’s upper levels, cafes and casual eateries included, so if you want to skip the queue, you know where to go.

Here’s a list of all the cafes available at Jewel Changi Airport. Glad to report there are quite a few new to Singapore names.

Do you still remember the area where the old Burger King and Long Beach Seafood Restaurant was? That place, also known as Raintree Cove has recently gotten a complete makeover and is now entirely transformed! No more buildings at Raintree Cove, now it is a quiet little haven for people to stroll about, gather, sit on swings or simply chill under the stars! If you’re wondering where to eat at East Coast Park now, click on the link.

Revamped Raintree Cove at East Coast Park (5)

Don’t mind Papa’s expression. Perhaps the swing is going too fast for him??

We had a lot of fun playing at the swings area. Thanks to this swing net thingy or what you might call it, the 3 of us even managed to get a family shot together! The adults might even have more fun here. I saw a mother of 4 children screaming and laughing hysterically as her husband tried to swing her higher and higher!
