We’re well into our brunch series now, and excited to find out about life from Singaporean corporate girl Fong. Like so many Singaporeans, she loves to travel and eat out, and if you want to find out how to improve your business networks, she’s your lady!
Bruschetta lover and connoiseur
BGIS: How long have you lived in Singapore?
F: I’m Singaporean but originally from Taiwan. I moved here when I was 12.
BGIS: What’s been your favorite holiday spot so far?
F: I went to Beirut last year. I love the Mediterranean culture and it has a unique history.
BGIS: What advice would you give someone moving here?
F: Embrace the diversity, it’s become more multicultural.
BGIS: What’s the best thing about living here?
F: It’s like entry level Asia! You get a flavour of the rest of Asia. You can enjoy Peranakan food and culture which you really don’t get in the rest of Asia.
BGIS: And the worst?
F: It’s become more congested, the MRT is always packed in the mornings. You can’t even read on the train! The MRT was designed for a certain number of people so it’s a challenge.
We ate at the Fabulous Baker Boy at the foot of the Fort Canning Hills. It’s a very cool, retro, decorated in bright pink. Unfortunately, the food was very disappointing. Neither Fong nor I were impressed. Our poached eggs on toast were very bland and my mushrooms and sausages quite plastic.
They do have an impressive selection of cakes so FBB may be best as for afternoon tea and something sweet. But for brunch, it’s not great.
Till next week!
