Changi Airport Singapore – A Shoppers Delight

by Rosemarie John April 19, 2014

Shopping at the Changi Airport for us has always been a magnificent experience. Even though most times we check in 3-4 hours in advance, we always find that time just flies and we find ourselves rushing to the gate to board the flight.

The sun beat down mercilessly on the tarmac as we walked hurriedly to the cool shade of the airport. We needed to get away from a hectic schedule and the past few weeks had been taxing .We had never been to […]

Attending a Cooking Class at Tanjong Jara Resort

by Rosemarie John February 17, 2014

As Tanjong Jara Resort is a sanctuary steeped in age-old Malay traditions accompanied with architecture that reflect the elegance and grandeur of 17th century Malay palaces, it is no surprise that I kept smelling fresh chillies being pounded and ground in preparations for either the days’ fresh chilli paste used in cooking or as a meal’s accompanying dip called sambal.

Experiencing a Pasar Malam in Terengganu

We found ourselves in a riot of colours.  Lined across both sides of a street in Dungun some 20 minutes away by car from Tanjong Jara Resort is a long lane where street vendors gather to proudly display their wares.

Tanjong Jara Resort – Bewitchingly Beautiful

by Rosemarie John February 13, 2014

It’s late at night at Tanjong Jara Resort, Terengganu. We sit here in the balcony of our room watching the dancing tide wash the shore. The strong breeze singing a soothing lullaby with its salty breath over our tired bodies. The time and tide are racing towards ushering in Valentine’s Day.
