What you'll do

I will take my new found friends to show what locals do ...what they eat such as our famous chicken rice etc...try our local coffee...how they interact...what makes us feel unique in this global village. Our way of speaking and of cos what makes our hawker food so special that it may soon be part of the UNESCO heritage program! This will be an intimate experience with groups no bigger than 3 or 4 persons. I’m glad to also be able to provide transportation by car.

I will start by picking them up from their hotel and driving them to tiong bahru to walk around and learn about public housing over the years. We will have coffee and Shui Kueh at a famous stall in tiong bahru. After this we will drive to purvis street, along the way soaking in the city sights and pointing out landmarks to the guests. At purvis street we will see Raffles Hotel and explore the city, and having famous Chicken rice at an authentic store. After this we will drive to Haji Lane and I will guide them through the shops and streets, while they will be able to shop, take photos and enjoy the eclectic shophouses.
