Trans Siberian Railway Day 1 on board the 070Ч Moscow to Irkutsk train is the third leg and first of my Trans Siberian Trek on board the Trans Siberian Railway on train 070Ч is from Moskva Yaroslavskaya Station to Irkutsk. A distance of 5186 km that should take 3days, 14 hours and 40 minutes to complete. Today’s travel is only 600 kms from Moskva Yaroslavskaya to Neya.

Train 070Ч goes from Moskva Yaroslavskaya Station to Chita, Irkutsk is about 14 hours before the end of its route.

White Rabbit Chef’s Table

White Rabbit Chef’s Table

One of my goals this trip was to dine at the White Rabbit Chef’s Table in Moscow. It was a experience more than a meal and exceeded my expectations. Looking forward to my next visit!

Fish Fish Fish

The Chef on the night I was there was Alexey Kogay who is the Chef of Chicha Bar a Japanese and Peruvian restaurant. A place I will have to visit next time I am in Moscow.

The Menu was all about Seafood, and was definitely an interesting night.

Everything was in Russian, so I was lucky to be sitting next to a Russian Teenager, Daria, who lives in SINGAPORE, and spoke perfect English (better than mine). Thankfully Daria translated all the important stuff.

Don’t let the lack of English prevent you from dining at the White Rabbit Chef’s Table, it really was not an issue.

2019 Singapore National Day Practice

It is that time of year again, time for the 2019 Singapore National Day Practice. Every Saturday from 15 Jun 2019 until National Day on 09 Aug 2019 the entire show is rehearsed TWICE each Saturday, which is a first.

Singapore,  2019 Singapore National Day,

I am lucky enough to have a great view of the preparations from my balcony. Though, IMHO, 8am on a Saturday is a bit early for Tanks…
