Wine Angel

Singapore safe exciting city

Australian Expats love Singapore, and there was rain, wine & food in abundance when I was visiting friends in 2007. Anne Lacy worked at Parkview Square where the wine Angel would fetch our preferred tipple raising herself high on the end of a hook.

Quite an interesting method of collecting your wine choice.

Too much red wine is never enough

That’s Duncan Paul on the left, Anne Lacy, David Herd, Kate Paul and Steve Bates.

Sadly after a long battle with cancer we lost Anne in March 2017, RIP.

    This is the place to go in Singapore for world famous chilli crab, make sure you haggle on the price.

  Here is we eat the wonderful Chili crabs imported from Sri Lanka. 

Say no more

  Imported from Sri Lanka, they are often much bigger than we can get in Australia.    Chilli crab in Singapore is the world’s best, one my way to Istanbul on February 24th 2015 I have arranged a 9 hour stop over in Singapore so I can visit The East Coast Seafood Centre for another wonderful dining experience.

 Sentosa in the rain

Tropical storms are almost a daily occurrence this time of the year in Singapore.

 When it rains it comes down in buckets

Huge drops of rain.

Sentosa casino

Resorts World Sentosa is an integrated resort off the southern coast of Singapore. Attractions include one of Singapore’s two casinos, a Universal Studios theme park, and a Marine Life Park, which includes the world’s largest oceanarium. The S$6.59 billion (US$4.93 billion) resort is the third most expensive building ever constructed. The resort will cover about 121 acres of land.

Morton’s Atrium Bar

Australian Expats love Singapore

  Anne, Kate, Duncan and Steve Bates. In Singapore, the Morton’s Atrium Bar has  long been one of the most popular bars in the city, thanks largely to the exceptional offerings of the “Mortinis Hours” of 5pm-7pm on week nights when the iconic Morton’s Martinis are attractively priced and served with complimentary filet mignon steak sandwiches.

Let’s move on to Changi Golf Course

  Here is an Aussie Duncan Paul teeing off at Changi Golf course near Singapore airport.

Changi is a reminder of Singapore’s historical connection with WWII, as the course winds through an area filled with mementos of the British presence like the soldier’s barracks, officer’s quarters, gun-emplacements and air-raid bunkers.
