2019 Singapore National Day Practice

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…

Odette Singapore

Odette Singapore

Just before Odette Singapore was named as the Number 1 Restaurant in the Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants list I dined there with a couple of friends from Australia.

Odette serves Modern French Cuisine that, if you have the cash, is worth a try. Recommend booking well in advance to get a table, especially now that they are rated the best restaurant in Asia.

“We hope to make Odette an honest and welcoming experience for everyone. This is where every ingredient has its place and purpose, and is treated with the utmost care to highlight its purest flavours. Beyond creating signature dishes, it is our passion to source for the very best produce to underscore our cuisine.”

One of the options is to pair wine with the Odette degustation menu. I recommend doing this as it adds to the experience as it is would be difficult to select the appropriate wines to go with each course.

Madrid Spain Oz’s Second Walkabout

Madrid Spain Oz’s Second Walkabout

The weather was still very good on my second day in Madrid, so I went for another stroll / bus trip around the place. I also wanted to check out the Asia Exhibit at the Spanish Naval Museum (Y EL Museo Naval).

Madrid Spain Oz’s First Walkabout

Madrid Spain Oz’s First Walkabout

The reason I was in the area was to attend a work conference in Madrid Spain, so took advantage of the opportunity to have a look around the place.

Catedral de la Almudena

Madrid is an attractive city in winter, doubt it would be as nice a place to visit in summer where the temp regularly exceeds 36C / 100F. There is not much cover, also explains why the locals escape in August.
