TL;DR – STB will be proud.
By now, the acronym of the month, scratch that, acronym of the year should be CRA.
Unless you have been living under a rock, you will probably have heard a thing or two about Hollywood’s adaptation of Kevin Kwan’s bestselling Crazy Rich Asians novel and the fact that it is set in Singapore.
American Vogue – which is like, only the most important fashion and lifestyle magazine in the world helmed by Anna Wintour – recently published this Crazy Rich Asians guide to Singapore featuring our “picturesque streets” and “lavish party locations”.
Interested to see what made the list? Here’s what:
The magazine says “their first and business class cabins boast wide, lie-flat seats and unparalleled service, but it’s their suites—furnished with beds—that are the most luxurious”.
Cause where else would be expect the “world’s best airline” to land?
Newton Food Centre
This food centre at Newton (no shit, Sherlock) has gotten quite a lot of eyeballs recently as it’s where it’s the lead characters Rachel and Nick, and his soon-to-be-married friends had supper at when they arrive. Vogue recommends the hokkien mee (they call it “a mix of egg and rice noodles with egg, pork, and shrimp”) and satay and also for their readers to check out Liao Fan Hong Kong Soya Sauce Chicken Rice & Noodle at Chinatown Complex Market & Food Centre and Hill Street Tai Hwa Pork Noodle on Crawford Lane.
Marina Bay Sands
As if it isn’t already Singapore’s most prominent landmark.
The Goh Mansion
The house is located on Cluny Park and is said to be currently on the market and that “the gates are sometimes unlocked if you want to take a quick look.”
The hotel’s Presidential Suite served as Nick and Rachel’s home base in Singapore.
The magazine says that it “faces a line of buildings with pastel-hued shutters” and we are guessing they meant this:
Did you know that this Catholic convent turned heritage build was constructed wayyyy back in 1852?
Gardens by the Bay
Vogue describes it as “tropical forest with an indoor waterfall and the other with an ever-changing mix of colorful flowers”.
Nothing much was said about this place except the “moment here on the tiered riverfront steps”.
Ann Siang Hill
Seems like it’s not only us who’ve got a thing for our iconic shophouses.
Marina Bay Sands Skypark
And of course, the infinity pool at Marina Bay Sands Skypark deserves a mention of its own.
