A flight of 6 different vintages of Majella Cabernet Sauvignon was the first flight of the 2018 Majella Vintage Tasting at New Ubin Seafood @ Chijmes. Another great night hosted by Robert Rees of Wine Exchange Asia
Majella is one of the first wineries in Australia that I started to actively follow, mainly because of Brian “Prof” Lynn, one of the founders of Majella, who always has a smile on his face and usually with a glass of wine in his hand, ready to share a bottle and a story or six. The Majella stand at a Wine Show is always one of the first, if not the first, on my list to visit.
Prof is also the cause of my main problem in Singapore, an amazing collection of friends who like to share at least a magnum of high quality booze each time we meet. A nice problem to have, thanks Prof.
As my Tuk Tuk Safari was so much fun it made sense to book another one, this one tailored for me by Duckman. My own Colombo Tuk Tuk Adventure courtesy of Tuk Tuk Safari.
I hope you enjoy this as much as I did, Duckman did a great job with picking out places I would like to visit and even arranged for one of his neighbours to take us out on a boat trip and for his wife to cook lunch.
I recently had a weekend in Colombo and so decided that I should check the place out. One of the easiest ways to get around the place is by Tuk Tuk so what better way to explore than in a convertible Tuk Tuk, and that is where Tuk Tuk Safaris come in, they get great reviews online and the timing and price was right so I chose their Colombo Sunset Tuk Tuk Safari.
My guide for the day was Donald Duck, but I decided that he was more of a Duckman than a Donald, he liked the change of name as well 🙂
Duckman’s real name is Chathuranga and he is the real reason why you would want to book a Tuk Tuk Safari tour.
When I was recently in Bangkok I was looking for a new restaurant to try that was walking distance from my hotel and Zanotti Il Restaurante Bangkok was the place I chose. It was also recommended by the staff in the hotel, they eat there, so how could I not give the place a try.
Chef Gianmaria Zanotti established the restaurant in 1998 and I now know why everyone who I spoke to before and after rave about the place. Great food, awesome friendly service and decent wine list. My sort of place.
When Bangkok what should one eat? Thai food of course, so I decided to try one of the top restaurants in town, Nahm Bangkok. Nahm is another Bangkok restaurant that is on the The Worlds 50 Best Restaurants list at number 28 globally and the number 10 restaurant in Asia. Nahm also received a Michelin Star in the inaugural Bangkok guide in 2017.
A part from be well credentialed Nahm Bangkok’s Chef, David Thompson, is an Aussie, so the food must be good. Read more
