I’ve been meaning to visit the Chinatown Heritage Centre for a couple of years now, as I’ve heard that it’s really worthwhile from everyone who’s visited there. And it was. Located within three restored shophouses, the centre houses interactive displays and lots of props, photos and displays. It was definitely worth the wait. We did a quick spot of shopping along Pagoda Street, snapping up bargain purses and scarves!
After a last minute beer in Ah Hoi’s, we check out of the Traders Hotel, our transfer takes us to the Shangri La Rasa Sentosa on Sentosa Island for the next four nights. And aren’t we lucky, we scored a Mercedes Benz transfer, which made us feel rather special rocking up to the resort. The Shangri La Rasa Sentosa is just lovely. Our room is facing into the hillside, which is where the action is – with the monkeys. But there’s no monkeys in sight today. The hotel has been renovated since our last visit though, which is great, because although it was a great hotel then, it was aging a bit, so it’s good to see the result of the facelift.
The hotel shuttle dropped us at Harbourfront for a spot of shopping at Vivocity and though we didn’t buy anything, we did get express pedicures and manicures at Nails at the Lacquer Room. I’ve been here a few times before, and they do great value treatments – SGD$12 for an express manicure and SGD$17 for an express pedicure. Just what the doctor ordered.
Tonight we booked dinner at Suburbia, and were surprised that we had the whole restaurant to ourselves! I ordered roast duck and Mum had fish and both dishes were lovely. Somehow they found out it was my birthday (obviously shouldn’t have left Mum at the table while I went to the bathroom), and not only did they bring out a free birthday tiramisu for me, but they gave us a discount on the bill!
