It’s no secret I’ve been to Singapore quite a number of times in the past. It’s one of my favourite places in the world. I usually tend to stay at larger hotels — Four Seasons, St. Regis and of course, the massive Marina Bay Sands. While you generally know what to expect with the big branded hotels, sometimes it’s nice to take a gamble and stay somewhere with a touch of charm. Afterall, I’m only in Singapore for a night and I wanted to do three things — buy a new computer, have chicken rice and chilli crabs.

Queenie and I booked a room at the Scarlet hotel. It’s located in the heart of Singapore’s Chinatown — literally next door to the Maxwell Road food center. I’ll tell you more about the reason why we wanted to go there, too.
