&Made is a product of 3 Michelin starred Chef Bruno Ménard. I chance upon this when I was researching for Michelin starred restos and/or chef's setting shop here in Singapore - Yes, I have a goal in dinning in everyone of them.

The name is a humoured way of how the french pronounce 'handmade'. And true to its name and tagline 'Everything is handmade'- nice. Its also interesting that restaurant's theme is french-american dinner - it made me want to put on some roller skates *heeheehee*. I ordered The 'B' Burger and &Made salad. I didn't know the salad was huge and for sharing! The burger was really really nice, I could have used some beer but it was too early in the day - although I should have gotten a hint when I saw the caucassian guy sitting at the table across mine, drinking a glass of wine, I though it was just him. I love the fries too. Its a place that I would love to come back for a tasty burger

Akashi - Vivo City

Have been in Akashi several times in Vivo city for lunch. Its a bit pricey for a lunch choice but I don't mind the occassional expense as the food here is nice. Plus I love Japanese food! The salmon and tuna taste fresh and i love the breading of the Tonkatsu *yum yum*.

We have all heard that its been said that breakfast is the most important meal of the day... to me I learned to grab one because you never know if you'll get stuck with some meeting in the morning till late in the afternoon. So this would be my usual breakfast at work - a bowl of porridge or blueberry pandcakes and egg. So if you happen to passby our area and smell porridge, I probably be one of the guilty ones *heeheehee*

So thats for weekdays, but if there is anything I love waking up early for the weekends is having brunches and these are the few places in the lil red dot that I have visited once or maybe more than once just to chill and maybe catch up with friends.

Siem Reap - Day 4

Day 4

Time for my personal R&R. Since my flight is departing earlier than Manoy and Dane, I decided to stay at the hotel and chill. Enjoyed a hearty breakfast with Manoy and Dane. They finished filling up their post cards and passed it to me. Then they made a move for their final day trip.

I headed to lounge by the pool. I finished filling up post cards. Which I left at the reception to be dropped at the post office. To date though, none of our recepients have received it. I checked with the hotel and they did say it was already mailed. Oh well.

Siem Reap - Day 3

Day 3

This day is exceptionally packed too! Call time is 5:00am so that we can catch the sunrise. If we knew that the hotel will do a little boo boo on our packed breakfast we could have gone down a little earlier. Note to those who want to catch the sunrise, Siem Reap hotel that has breakfast included in the room would be nice enough to pack your breakfast with you, just need to advise them the night before. Its quite common for hotel guest to leave really early to catch the Angkor Wat sunrise. Our hotel given that its new, got a little delayed with prepping up the breakfast, thus we were running late in our ETD. But this didn't dampen our spirts... off to the temples!

Bring flashlight because its really pitch black, I did like that the kept it that way, I think having lights at the temple would ruin its facade. The good spot to be in is at the left side of Angkor Wat because when the sun shows up, it will have a good reflection in the temple. Just too bad that there are hundreds of people that are already there so I couldn't take pictures without someone's hand or camera in there. It was so amazing to see the sky turn from black to purple to blue

Siem Reap - Day 2

Day 2
Early call time. Our hotel booking comes with breakfast for three. I grabbed a hearty breakfast thinking we might not eat on time later in the day. There was a buffet table with croissant, poach egg, veggie spring roll and potato, which I initially thought 'This is all they have??'. But then they handed a menu for us to order one full meal each so we each ordered individual items to share. Got to eat fried rice and bacon. It was like home cook breakfast.

We then headed out the city to start our exploration with a walking tour. It starts from Wat Preah Inkosei and end at Pub Street at The Alley.
Wat Preah Inkosei, found in the north of the city, is one of the Angkorian brick tample which still stands today.
