Trip to Saint Lucia - Soufriere & Gros Islet

In May 2011 we went to Saint Lucia and had a trip of 2 parts. The first part we went more "local" and stayed in a place called Gros Islet. It is very close to Rodney Bay which is very "cruise stop" like and full of Americans and American food. We went only once and didn't return. We preferred it in Gros Islet which is just a little fishing village with very few places to stay. We stayed at the Bay Guesthouse which was lovely. Rustic but charming, very well located and with very nice owners.

The second half of the trip we stayed in Soufriere at the luxurious Fond Doux Plantation which is a working plantation where they make chocolate, well, they grow the beans, roast them, dry them etc and ship them out. It was gorgeous.

First year as an expat in Singapore - lessons learned and tips for newcomers :)

After a year in Singapore, what kind of advice would I give new expats in Singapore or people looking to move here? This is all utterly subjective so don't get annoyed with me if you don't agree, but I would welcome constructive criticism / advice. Especially from people in different situations than me as I am one half of a couple who moved together and work at the same company, with no kids and a mortgage back in Europe.

OCT14 - I have a new post which may also interest you, did a survey of expats and I wrote up my opinion of the results for Singapore here - Expat results for Singapore

Singapore - Muchachos for rather good Mexican (burritos and quesadillas) on Keong Saik Road

We needed to do some shopping in Chinatown (to be precise - Sia Huat for awesome kitchen stuff!) so I suggested G meet me after my yoga class and we head down to Keong Saik Road and finally try Muchachos! I have heard lots of good things about this American Style Mexican place and was craving some Mexican food, plus had earned the carbs after a class where the instructor actually admitted she was torturing us on purpose! G wasn't too enthused as he isn't such a fan of burritos due to them containing rice, but we now know that Muchachos allows you to customise it entirely so next time G will have a burrito but without rice so we can use our 1 for 1 deal on The Entertainer App.

I went for a pollo asado (Chicken) burrito - yummmmm :) What went in there? Well you can check the "making of the burrito" further down the post but I chose not to have cheese or sour cream and took the guacamole option, so my burrito contained: chicken which was spiced / marinated and grilled,…

Singapore - Zam Zam: Yummy murtabak and biryani

When I asked for prata recommendations and Indian food recommendations in Singapore, muturbak kept coming up, especially for restaurants close to Arab street such as Zam Zam and Victory. I had been planning on giving it a go for a while, and this gave me the excuse to have lunch there. I had asked my other half and today he decided he wanted to have a biryani and that is also good there, so we went. And we took 2 colleagues along with us.
