I fell hard for these Gianvito Rossi ‘Marie’ lace-up boots the first time my eyes laid on them, and you can obviously see why. The satin, the lace-up, the thigh-high.. what’s not to love? Fast forward a couple weeks later, I managed to land the last pair (ever, ever, ever in the world) in my perfect size and I swear I have trouble taking them off. For one, I wish I could wear them to sleep, and secondly, the tying and untying gets a bit hectic especially when you’re in the changing rooms. That said, the concealed zipper is a lifesaver though, so thank goodness for that. Now, only if you can spot it..

Singapore is truly lovely, trust me, and I’m obviously proud to be Singaporean but you can imagine how stifling the city gets on a humid day (which is almost every other day). I miss stacking on the layers and coats, and of course I wish we could just swap weathers with second home, Perth. But until the impossible becomes possible, I’ll just make do with cosying up in airy vests and flared pants that are slashed to the knees.

There are a few places in the world close to my heart, some of them significant because of the close friends I’ve made, and others are far etched in my memory by the intimate flavours of a very, very wonderful meal. Four Seasons Hotel Singapore is one of them, mainly for the reasons that many unexpected friendships have been formed within the building, and that their award-winning restaurants serve up an excellent meal while their fine serene spa boasts a mighty first-class massage, tried and true.

Signature Peking Duck
Duck is roasted in a customised wood-fired oven, imbuing succulence to the meat and reducing fat beneath the aromatic crispy skin. The xiang le touch extends also to the service as the chef personally carves the duck in front of guests with an exquisite final touch – caviar is served on the side, for an intimate blend with the traditional flavours of the duck.

Even their dim sums showcase the laborious and delectable attention to detail by the chefs. For one, the crispy flaky pastry with black pepper meat takes many hours to make, with seventeen symmetrical layers alternated between water-based and oil-based skin to form a crispy textured pastry that wraps the wood-fired meat within. And perhaps one of my favourites, the steamed barbequed pork bun uses kurobuta pork that is glazed and cooked in the wood-fired oven, and then finally topped with the tangy sweetness of green chilli. To say it was exquisite is an understatement.
