Singapore Day 11 – SQ Food Perth to Singapore, Traders Hotel, The Line at Shangri-La Hotel


We took flight SQ216 and that meant leaving Perth at 1:05 am and arriving in Singapore at 6:25 am. This was the meal served on the flight.

I’m glad I woke up to eat. It was one of the best chicken curry I’ve ever eaten! The other meals we had in Singapore airlines were blah but this was so good.

We arrived at 6:25 am and we were all so sleepy. We even fell asleep in the taxi on the way to Traders Hotel.

What I liked about Traders hotel is it’s connected to Tanglin Mall where there are shops, cafes, restaurants, a supermarket and pharmacy. There’s also complimentary scheduled shuttle buses to Orchard Road, the Shangri-La Hotel, Singapore, Suntec City, Shenton Way and selected business districts, and the Orchard Road MRT station is a short walk away. There’s also free internet connection in the rooms and free wi-fi in the lobby.

The room was nice, clean and just the right size. The bathroom was small though. It was a 1 person at a time size bathroom.

Orchard road is about a 10 minute walk from our hotel.

Despite being so sleepy when we found out that’s Chris’ HS friend from Manila who now lives in Singapore was going to treat us for lunch we were suddenly wide awake. Her friend Tecky treated all of us to lunch at The Line restaurant in Shangri-La hotel. The restaurant served International cuisine spread over 16 culinary stations. I didn’t even get to see all those stations.

The food was amazing! Everything I tried was good but after I had half of my favorite Laksa I was full.


I was surprised to see Yorkshire pudding with the roast beef. Reminded me of Lawry’s The Prime Rib where they serve the yummiest Yorkshire puddings. The Yorkshire pudding here was overcook and dried out.

Techy had the inside scoop in this restaurant. She told us we can order cheese and fruit naan even though it wasn’t listed on the menu at the naan station. The problem was she told us about it when we were already so full. Neverthelesss we tried it. The cheese naan tasted like pizza. The naan with dried fruit was different but still good. We wanted to take home the leftovers badly.
