Singapore Food & Travel 2013 @ Part 3 (Final)

Aside from food hunting in Singapore, we visited a few landmarks including Chinatown's landmark: Buddha Tooth Relic Temple and Museum in South Bridge Road & Marina Bay Sands in Bayfront Avenue. Read on below!

Buddha Tooth Relic Temple and Museum

Buddha Tooth Relic Temple

Buddha Tooth Relic Temple
The Bell Tower of Buddha Tooth Relic Temple is installed on the second level. At the ground level directly below the bell tower is a statue of Kshitigarbha Bodhisattva. A great view as the vibrants colours were rich and the culture essence was meaningful.

Address:
288 S Bridge Rd, 
Singapore 058840


Marina Bay Sands

 At night, we visited one of Singapore's iconic building, the Marina Bay Sands which is an Integrated Resort fronting Marina Bay in Singapore. Developed by Las Vegas Sands, it is billed as the world's most expensive standalone casino property at S$8 billion, including cost of the prime land.

Marina Bay Sands
The building itself was a splendid design structure with a boat shape on the top whereby visitors can visit for a small amount of fee. We did not went up as we were rushing to meet friends in other places.

Walking towards Marina Bay Sands
Spend some time walking towards there. A great view of the building on other angles.


By the way, you can enjoy their laser show at the Marina Sands Bay Atrium (free of course!) which is a great show to watch. However, do sit further up abit as the heat from the laser sources were certainly provoking.

Tong Ah Coffeeshop

We visited Tong Ah Coffeeshop in Keong Saik Road which was Singapore's oldest kopitiam since 1939 as to our luck, it was the last day before this four-generation coffe shop move to another location due to the building itself being took over.

This place serves great coffee & Kaya toast bread which were delightful and classic. 

Iced Coffee & Kaya Toast

Kaya Toast
It was a great last afternoon here as the kaya toast were superb with the sweet & salty sliced butter enveloped in toasted bread. This dish indeed could be on par with Kota Kinabalu's version of Kaya toast. Would visit their new location if I had the chance.

Address:
New Location : No.35 Keong Saik Road on beginning of August 2013


Tiong Bahru Food Market & Hawker Centre

Before heading off to Changi Airport, we stopped by Tiong Bahru Food Market for brunch whereby the place consists of many local Singaporeans hawkers stall that were certainly hard to choose from.

Chwee Kueh
Previous bloggers suggested the Chwee Kueh which is a steamed rice cake topped with diced preserved radish and served with chilli sauce. It was really good as the saltiness of the toppings blended into the rice cake and a must order here!

Shark Meat Noodles
Again, we had the shark meat noodles which embodies noodles in a broth of fried shark meat. The shark meat was good however the soup was really thick from the starch used inside. 

That ends my posting for my Singapore Food & Travel Trip 2013! Stay tuned for my upcoming Osaka, Japan Trip!
