Aryanti heads to the Esplanade for a dose of culture

What are your two favourite places to eat or drink in the neighbourhood? Sin Ming Prata tucked in at a coffee shop in Sin Ming HDB, and Fat Boy Burger on Thomson Road. What are the best places to shop at in the neighbourhood? FairPrice Finest at Thomson Plaza, Junction 8 at Bishan and NEX Mall in Serangoon. What are some fun or interesting things to do in the neighbourhood? I love the nature trail and the TreeTop Walk at MacRitchie Reservoir as well as exploring the nature trail at Lower Peirce Reservoir with my boys. What’s one thing you’d never change? The massive grounds and the size of the rooms in the apartment. How about one thing you would change? Vehicle access to the rear towards Toa Payoh Rise. If the city gave you a million dollars to soup up your street, how would you use it? I’d put in more than one vehicle access road in and out of the street. What are your favourite Singapore spots for taking out-of-town guests? MacRi t chi e Reser voi r, Li t t l e Indi a , Chinatown, Joo Chiat, East Coast Seafood Centre, Dempsey Hill, Sentosa, Arab Street, Bugis and Beach Road. When you’re in need of a dose of culture, where do you go? The excellent museums, the Esplanade, and The Projector, a great retro cinema on Beach Road. BEYOND THE ’HOOD

Joo Chiat is a fun spot to take out-of-town visitors
