Burghound in Asia wine tasting at St Regis

May 13, 2011

A colleague of mine gave me some tickets to attend the Burghound in Asia wine tasting session last month held at the St Regis Hotel. I was supremely elated at the opportunity because St Regis is a really nice hotel, and also because of the wine of course!

St Regis Hotel - Li Chen's Dragon Riding Bodhisattva

Li Chen’s Dragon Riding Bodhisattva in front of the St Regis Hotel. I don’t think I’ll ever appreciate these black statues. They look like monstrosities if you ask me. However I do know of people who when they see these statues, it’s like love at first sight. My ex-boss being one such person, he has 1 in his house.

We tried 7 wines in total. To be frank, I can’t really tell the difference between very similarly tasting wines, although I can still differentiate between the very distinct ones. I took only a few sips of each as I have this problem of getting red very easily. Once, during an office party, the boss brought an expensive bottle of wine to share. I took 2 sips and became red soon after and everyone thought I’d chugged down half a bottle!

Burghound in Asia Wine Tasting

 St Regis Hotel - Tea break area

Tea, coffee and some refreshments were provided

Cup of tea with 2 sugar squares

Had to have a cup of tea to dilute the alcohol in me. Love those square sugars with a hole in the centre, so unique! I placed them nicely in this manner for the photo. The Partner did not realise this and thought they were cookies and ate 1!!!

St Regis Hotel - Lovely centrepiece

Love this centrepiece flower arrangement. Brightens the whole place and it looks so welcoming.
