Poise and professional describe Catalina very well. She is a dream to work with. She has a lovely calm persona, and very relaxed in her delivery, she instantly puts her guests at ease. She feels like a friend you haven’t met in awhile. But behind all that ease is a meticulous professional who puts in hours of research before each tour. No wonder she is consistently everyone’s favourite guide. Did we say she guides in both French and English?
Gourmet: eating is after all Singapore’s national sport, a national passion.
Kaya toast with a good café au lait.
Pulau Ubin, a nostalgic slice of the old Singapore.
Hua Bee kopitiam at Tiong Bahru or Fei Fei wonton noodle at Joo Chiat Place, I can’t pick one between these two. To me, both epitomised comfort food.
Alamak: an Malay expression of dismay, shock or surprise. Phonetically close to Chinese term “oh, my mother”.
Aiyah: Chinese meaning “oh no, oh dear”.
It is just an excuse to get together to talk and eat….
Hong Kong. A little part of me. My second home 🙂
I am a bird whisperer…Too bad I can’t fly though.
visit Emerald Hill. It is a great place to stroll around – quite peaceful and evocative. Nestled just a stone’s throw away from the hustle and bustle of Orchard Road, this is a tranquil, nostalgic and pleasant neighbourhood. Admire the architecture and imagine what life here would have been like in its heyday when the affluent Peranakan (Straits-Chinese) community resided here. Come for the beautiful and unique architecture, or maybe a drink at one of the trendy bars?
