Top Mid-range Hotel Singapore: Hotel G


The name Hotel G might sound familiar to some, and that’s because they have hotels in many different locations, including San Francisco, Bangkok, Hong Kong and Shenzhen, with more slated to open in 2017. Hotel G Singapore is conveniently located at Middle Road with 308 rooms categorized into Good, Great and Greater.  I was lucky enough to stay a night in one of the Great rooms and it was a fantastic experience.

Step inside the reception area of Hotel G and be wowed by the prompt service and smooth check-in!  For the weary traveller, there are plenty of seats around, including a huge wraparound sofa to lounge around while waiting for your turn to check in. At the same time, for the shopper eager to show their support for the Hotel G brand, they could also take a look at the Hotel G branded merchandise at the side, ranging from t-shirts and caps all the way to bathrobes.

Likewise, you need not worry about complicated check-in procedures. Just produce your name card and check-in would be done, quickly and efficiently! Now that’s good service.

The room was smaller than I’d expected, but travellers need not worry. I was impressed by how the designers utilized the space and layout, allowing luggage to be stowed in a nook under the bed to avoid clutter.

Each room has dreamcatchers hung above the bed, with different designs for the three room types. It was nice to watch the patterns dance across the ceiling as the feathers fluttered around. I was told that you could have a good night’s sleep with pleasant dreams. I slept very well that night!

I did some exploring. The workplace had a big corkboard attached to the wall with information pinned onto it. I particularly liked that there was an FAQ-esque info sheet that informed guests of the checkout time, breakfast timing and other useful things to note.

For foreign travellers, there’s a handy smartphone that allows you to make calls and comes with guides and maps so that navigation around the city is easier. There’s also free unlimited WiFi within the hotel, which I tested by uploading a whole bunch of Instagram stories — the network is actually pretty fast and reliable. Awesome for all your Twitter and Facebook updates too!

The bathroom contains a small amenities kit with body soap, shampoo and conditioner provided by Australian brand METIS.  Great for ‘freshening up after a long day. My only tiny gripe was that toothbrushes weren’t provided, something that the hotel might want to include in the future.

Apart from that, there was a safe to keep your valuables, a hairdryer, kettle and television. I was pleased with the inclusion of an ice bucket . Definitely a nice touch since there are ice machines available on each floor to make sure you have ice-cool drinks throughout your stay.

For the sporty type, don’t fret! Though there’s no pool for a quick dip, there’s a small gym located at the third floor and it is pretty Instagrammable too. Work out with treadmills, cycling machines, and a weight machine along with dumbbells. There’s a punching bag, as well as a speed bag in the corner of the gym. What a well-equipped gym!

If you are feeling peckish and adventurous, Hotel G is a short hop away from food and entertainment as it is conveniently located between Bugis and Dhoby Ghaut.

However, if you are feeling a little lazy, there are two restaurants right under the hotel: Ginett and 25 Degrees Burger.

Early birds can feast on a delicious buffet breakfast provided by Ginett. I went with an empty stomach the next morning and was immensely satisfied. There were 4 stations: hot food station, live egg station, pastry station, as well as drinks, cold cuts and cheeses.

I was most impressed with the egg station. You could have your omelette freshly made by a chef! My omelette was stuffed with mushrooms and ham. It was delicious, fluffy and savory. Yum!

Dessert and pastry fans, rejoice. The pastry section had a good selection with croissants, pain au chocolate and other baked goods on display. If you’re a cereal fan, fret not, for there is a wide range of cereals and milk available too to tickle your taste buds.

Hotel G has everything the modern traveller needs: conveniently located in the city, comfortable rooms, delicious buffet breakfast and most of all, comfortable rooms. I would surely come back again!


호텔 G는 샌프란시스코, 방콕, 홍콩,선전을 포함해 많은 지역에 분포해 있고, 더 많은 호텔이 2017년에 개관할 예정이다. 그렇기 때문에 호텔 G는 많은 사람들에게 친숙하게 다가갈 수 있다. 호텔 G 싱가포르는 Middle Road에  편리하게 위치해 있으며308개의 방을 보유 하였고,  방 종류는 Good, Great, Greater로 분류 된다. 나는 운이 좋게도 하룻밤을 Great 방에서 지낼 수 있었고 그것은 결코 잊을 수 없는 경험이었다.

호텔 G의 리셉션에 들어가자마자 즉각석인 서비스와 빠른 체크인으로 감탄했다. 지친 여행객들을 위해, 라운지에서 체크인을 기다리는 동안 쉴 수 있는 푹신하고 넒은 소파와 많은 의자들이 비치되어 있었다. 옆쪽에는 티셔츠와 모자 부터 목욕용 가운까지 다양한 호텔 G 브랜드의 상품들이 비치되어 있어 쇼핑을 좋아하는 여행객들은 호텔 G 브랜드의 상품을 엿볼 수 있었다.

또한, 복잡한 체크인 절차에 대한 걱정을 할 필요가 없다. 명함만 제시하면 체크인은 빠르고, 효율적으로 완료된다. 아주 만족스러운 서비스를 경험 할 수 있었다.

아름다운 벽지는 장식을 더욱 빛나게 하였고, 다른 호텔처럼 격식있는 분위기가 아니라 좀 더 생동감 있는 분위기 였다.  복도의 전등을 약간 어둡게 하고, 각 방의 문위의 전등을 밝혀 방문을 강조한것은 기발한 아이디어인것 같다.

방은 내가 기대했던 것보다 작았지만, 여행객에게는 문제가 되지 않을 것 같다.어수선함을 피하기 위해 침대 밑에 가방을 보관할 수 있도록 한것을 보며, 이 호텔 디자이너들의 공간과 레이아웃 활용에 감탄하였다.

각 방의 침대 위에는 3개의 방 종류 별로 다른 디자인의 드림캐쳐가 걸려 있었다. 드림캐쳐의 날개가 벽 위에서 흔들리며 춤을 추듯 패턴을 만드는 것은 너무나 보기 좋았다. 덕분에 좋은 꿈을 꾸며 숙면을 취할 수 있다고 들었는데, 그래서 그런지 그날 밤 나는 아주 편안하게 잘 수 있었다.

호텔 방의 책상위에는 다양한 정보가 꽂혀 있는 큰 크로크 판이 벽에 붙어 있었다.  특히 체크 아웃 시간과 아침 시간 그리고 다른 유용한 정보들을 손님들에게 알려주는 FAQ(자주 묻는 질문) 가 있어 편리했다.

전화, 지도, 그리고 가이드를 이용할 수 있는 유용한 스마트 폰이 있어 외국 여행객들은 쉽게 도시주변의 위치를 찾을 수 있다. 호텔 안에는 무료 와이파이가 있어 테스트 할겸 많은 스토리를 인스타에 올렸는데 인터넷이 굉장히 빠르고 신뢰할 수 있었다. 트위터와 페이스북 업데이트도 굉장히 빨랐다.

샤워실에는 호주 브랜드인 METIS 의 바디 워시, 샴푸, 컨디셔너가 들어있는 작은 키트가 있었다. 긴 하루 뒤에 상쾌함을 느낄 수 있어 좋았다. 나의 작은 불만은 칫솔이 제공되지 않은 것이다. 호텔이 나중에라도 칫솔을 제공 할 수 있다면 더욱 좋을 것 같다.

그것 외에, 귀중품을 보관할 수 있는 금고, 헤어 드라이기, 주전자, 그리고 TV가 있었다. 얼음 통도 있어서 기뻤다. 물론, 아이스 자판기가 각 층에 비치되어 있어 호텔에서 숙박하는 동안 시원한 음료를 즐길 수 있어 아주 좋았다.

스포츠를 좋아하는 사람들도 걱정할 필요가 없다. 수영장은 없지만 삼층에 작은 체육관은 꽤 인스타그래머블(SNS에 공유하고 싶은 정보) 하다. 러닝 머신, 싸이클,아령과 같은 웨이트 기구가 있고, 샌드백과, 스피드백이 체육관 코너에 있다. 이정도면 아주 괜찮은 체육관인 것 같다.

약간 출출하고, 모험이 하고 싶은 경우, 호텔 G는 부기스와 도비곳 사이에 편리하게 위치해 있어 음식점과 오락거리들을 가까이서 즐길 수 있다.

그러나 그것도 번거롭다면, Ginett과 25 Degrees Burger 라는 두개의 식당이 호텔 아래층 오른쪽에 위치해 있다.

아침에 일찍일어나면 Ginnet에서 제공하는 맛있는 아침 뷔페를 맘껏 먹을 수 있다. 다음날 아침에 공복으로 식당에게 가서 아주 배불리 만족스럽게 먹었다. 식당에는 4개의 음식 코너가 있는데 메인요리, 즉석 계란 요리, 디저트와 음료, 샌드위치, 그리고 치즈등이 비치되어 있다.

나는 계란 코너에 아주 만족스러웠다. 요리사의 즉석 오믈렛을 즐길 수 있다. 나는 버섯과, 햄을 오물렛에 넣었는데 아주 맛있고 부드러웠다.

디저트와 페이스트리의 팬이라면 기뻐할 것이다. 페이스트리 코너는 크루아상, 뺑 오 쇼콜라, 그리고 다른 베이크 음식들이 진열되어 있다. 씨리얼 팬이라면 걱정할 필요 없다. 미각을 자극하는 아주 다앙한 시리얼과 우유가 제공된다.

호텔 G는 도시에 위치하여 편리하고, 맛있는 아침 뷔페를 즐길 수 있고, 무엇보다도 편안한 룸은 현대의 여행객들이 필요로 하는 모든 것을 갖추었다고 볼 수 있다. 반드시 꼭 다시 묵고 싶은 호텔이다!

如果您饿了并想进行一番探索,G酒店距离餐饮和娱乐场所都非常靠近,因为其刚好坐落于武吉士(Bugis)和多美歌(Dhoby Ghaut)之间。

然而,如果你懒惰,酒店楼下就有两家餐厅:Ginett和25 摄氏度汉堡。

Top Recommended Cafe Johor Bahru: Union Fashion Bar Pelangi


Some experiences in life stay with you forever. One such experience for me was the day I met Chef Yap. He has carved a special place for himself in the culinary world.

He started his career in 1998 with Pokka Japan Corporation’s patisserie. Later he joined Bakerzin and then the Boga group, of Indonesian heritage, which has several popular brands under its belt. Some of those are Bakerzin, Boga Catering, Pepper Lunch, Ten Ten etc. Chef Yap was the group’s Executive Chef (R&D) just before he decided to head back home in 2015, where he launched his own brand “Union Fashion Bar”.

It was at Union Fashion Bar’s Garden in Taman Pelangi where we met. Since 2015, UFB has grown from one to three outlets – one at Taman Pelangi, the other at Inderapura (Kulai) and the third one at Taman Sutera. Apart from a Cheese U Bistro in Kluang, he is soon coming up with a new outlet of UFB there.

UFBs boast of their independent style statement. Using the word “fashion” in a restaurant’s name itself describes how creative and innovative Chef Yap is. He has remodelled his outlets after the restaurants in malls of Jakarta where Anak Johor Yap has worked for thirteen years. You can expect to be served lunch, tea, supper and dinner at UFBs.

Over a bowl of UFB’s Papachos, we warmed up. The Papachos are the plain old papadums with a tangy, sweet and saucy twist. Served with diced tomatoes the crispy Papachos are a sure shot crowd pleaser. It’s no surprise. After all it comes from the Executive Chef of Boga Group.

The next thing I had were the deep fried Pork Bone Noodles. They were pretty decent but the broth and sambal chilli just took my breath away. I wanted to keep ordering them again and again. The milky broth, which was made by boiling pork bones, had a natural porky sweetness to it and a smooth thick texture owing to the melted collagen.

I am planning to suggest them to bottle their classic sweet and savoury sambal chilli. The chilli flakes and fried flakes of shrimp in it give it a crackling spicy body. One just craves for that explosion in your mouth.

Next up was the Frozen Cheese Cake Pop. They make all cheese cake ice-creams in house. And that too it in several different flavours like plain, chocolate, spicy orange and coffee. The flavours are then given a coating of chocolate and there are a wide range of toppings to choose from such as cranberry, marshmallow, Oreo crumbles, bacon etc.

After meeting Chef Yap I was left with a sweet taste in my mouth, quite literally.

Here is a quick look at the Menu and their prices.

Papachos  ~ RM10.90++

Deep Fried Pork Bone Noodles ~ RM18.90++

Frozen Cheese Cake Pop ~ RM18.90++ to RM20.90++

Top Recommended Restaurant Bangkok: Gaggan

Having opened in 2010, it only took four short years for Gaggan Anand to bring his eponymous restaurant to global recognition. The restaurant made top 10 consecutively in the last 3 years on The World’s 50 Best Restaurants, and remains the only Indian restaurant to make it on the list.

So what will Gaggan be remembered for? Its gorgeous architecture, for one, is something to look back on. The two-storey colonial style building sports a good few floor-length window panes, giving curious pedestrians a glimpse into the restaurant’s interior. In the daytime, this serves the practical purpose of allowing plenty of natural light into the room, although the better view is arguably during nightfall – when warm lighting within the restaurant shines through the window panes, like a lantern giving the dim streets its glow.

Never one to disappoint, the exterior is not the only view Gaggan has to offer. The cooking process itself is possibly just as important as the completed dish, which is why gastronomes mostly prefer a dining experience at the chef’s table, the equivalent to a front row seat to a MasterChef live shoot. At Gaggan’s, however, there is the option to make your dining experience extra special. Just a level above the chef’s table, a recently opened dining space known as ‘The Lab’ can be found. Equipped with freeze dryers and the brain of a mastermind, this is where Anand experiments with his magic touch – bringing new life to ingredients with his ways in molecular gastronomy.

And his innovative dishes are just a little short of peculiar. That said, we give him credit for letting the average commoner ease into the hardly-normal affair, with his introductory dish being a pickled cherry soda, served in a test-tube thrust into a bucket of ice. A familiar enough flavour for one not to be too taken aback, yet with that extra little something that reminded us that this is nothing close to a visit to our everyday diner.

Next in line – a spiced yoghurt sphere – was also of similar nature.

Then came the surprises – combinations that never occurred to us – that we adored. No one could stop gushing about how the uncooked curry cookie was simply decadent, or how the spicy pork vindaloo had such robust and full-bodied flavour.

So what will Gaggan be remembered for? The answer is straightforward and has been there for all to see. Its mastermind, its mad scientist, its magician, and most of all, its chef. Anand. And no matter his future endeavours, we wish him the best of luck.

After all, it goes without saying, that wherever Anand is, there will be magic.

Eugene’s Grocery, Johor Bahru


Looking for a place to get the best meats in Johor Bahru? Eugene’s Grocery is number one on our list. Nestled in Jalan Perang, Taman Pelangi, the store imports and distributes fresh and chilled meat but never frozen below -20ºC to ensure freshness. This guarantees the flavour and quality of the proteins you get, enabling you to cook up a storm for a special occasion or even just a delicious everyday meal. Fresh ingredients are always a top priority for a tasty meal.

A main highlight of Eugene’s Grocery is their beef, imported from countries such as USA, Australia, New Zealand and of course, Japan.

Want something low-fat and low-calorie? New Zealand grass-fed beef is your pick. Want something tender and juicy? Japanese Wagyu beef is the recognized world-wide to be the best. Japanese Wagyu beef is genetically predisposed to intense marbling and melts-in-the-mouth and Eugene’s Grocery has Grade A5 Japanese Wagyu, which is the highest grade possible.  The A5 here is truly world-class, just as good as those you find in Paris, London etc.

The store is not only the go-to for freshly chilled meat varieties, they provide fresh foods such as wide varieties of pasta, and seafood. On top of the cost of the meat/ seafood, you can add a nominal and the expert chef prepares the meat/ seafood just the way you like it for you to enjoy right here in the deli.  I wholly recommend their lobsters from Boston.  Kept live in a tank till you buy it, you can really taste the “fresh-off-the-sea” sensation in these crustaceans.

Well-known for their impeccable service, you can also pick up ingredients easily from the day’s menu over the counter.

If ogling at the different kinds of grub makes you a little hungry, Eugene’s Grocery also serves delectable western cuisines on the spot. We hear that the steak, burgers and ribs are mouth-watering.

You can find Eugene’s Grocery at: No.16 Jalan Perang Taman Pelangi, Johor Bahru

And before you ask, yes, the food’s pretty good, too!

One of the restaurant’s highlights would definitely be their Double-Boiled Ginseng Soup with Village Chicken.  The village chicken, having gone through the process of double-boiling, was absolutely tender and melted in our mouths. The soup itself contained various other nutritious ingredients and was fragrant, wholesome, and tasty to the core. 10/10 would recommend this when you drop by this restaurant.

Did you know that Wan Li serves up a variety of fresh seafood as well? A seafood dish is a must-have when you’re here, and our pick of the day was the Crisp-Fried Fillet of Cod Fish with Fragrant Garlic and Superior Soy Broth. The flesh itself was sweet and firm, owing to its state of freshness. Along with the savory and flavourful soy broth, this dish impressed us with its intricate harmony of tastes.

And, of course, how can we miss out the desserts? Starting with the Chilled Mango Puree & Pomelo, this dish impressed us with its mango-y goodness. One bite in and you can already tell how pure the puree is! None of that diluted, tasteless stuff that we so often get. The refreshing pomelo bits did a great job in balancing out the concentrated, tangy flavours of the mango as well. A match made in heaven, if you ask me.

Last but not least, a trip to any dim sum restaurant would be incomplete without some salted egg yolk buns. Aptly named the Golden Custard Bun, is it too much to say that even this common dish managed to impress us by quite a bit? Nestled within the freshly steamed bun, the salted egg yolk custard was just the right mix of savoury and sweet. Its consistency was just right as well – not too runny, not too solid, something that so many others seem to not quite get. Needless to say, Wan Li has got it down to the tee.

It was a wonderful afternoon at Wan Li Chinese Restaurant, what’s with all that goodness frolicking in our mouths. It’s definitely a place to check out if you ever want to get some superb Cantonese food, so drop by soon when that craving hits!

Rowan and Parsley, Johor Bahru


In love with wild herbs and spices in your food? Or are you, perhaps, just someone who loves a good hearty meal? Either way, Rowan & Parsley Food Atelier’s the place for you! Tucked within a light industrial estate along Jalan Kota, the “Plant to plate” concept restaurant is easily recognizable with its majestic, arch iron gates by the front. Step inside and you’ll be greeted by an enchanted garden filled with budding fruit trees and lush greenery comprising of edible herbs and flowers, and these goes right onto your plates!

Grown from a garden and served fresh on a plate, this is the concept of Rowan & Parsley in a 9,000 sq. ft. space. Having always enjoyed eating home grown ingredients flavoured with exotic herbs, co-owner Sam Soon, who was also a kampong boy from Pahang, took this as an inspiration and diligently spent almost two years building up the restaurant’s green sanctuary. With the wide variety of edible herbs and spices decorating the grounds along the peripheral fence and at the back of the restaurant, his devotion and care is undoubtable.

From wooden tables to a staircase made of wrought iron, the restaurant sports a modern set of furnishings and has been specifically designed with metal fixings to give it an industrial theme. The contemporary glass walls around the perimeters of the restaurant also gives a magnificent view of the outdoor garden, and we found ourselves basking in the natural sunlight that permeated through the walls, while being in the comfort of an air-conditioned area. As evening approaches, you can trace the constellations in the night sky and relax under the moonlight as you dine at their outdoor alfresco area.

Craving for both Japanese and Western food? We’ve got you covered! Known for their fusion food, their main course of Unagi Aglio Olio is perfect for pampering yourself. Served simple with al dente linguine and cooked-to-perfection unagi, the dish is garnished with edible mustard sprouts, holding an aromatic zest of spiciness from chilli flakes and garlic flavouring. A definite must try on our list!

If that hasn’t left your tummy feeling fully satisfied, their signature main course of Grilled Poulet will certainly not disappoint you! Who could resist a good ol’ tender grilled chicken thigh? What’s more, one that is drizzled in a savoury brown sauce, with a delectable aftertaste of fresh mushrooms, tomatoes and chicken stock! Served with creamy mashed purple yam and sautéed vegetables, take a bite of them together if you are feeling adventurous, and indulge your taste buds with a yummy burst of flavours.
