Singapore, October '11: Somerset Grand Cairnhill

An expensive taxi ride later, we were out of the airport, and standing in the modest lobby of Somerset Grand Cairnhill, Singapore on Cairnhill Road, off Orchard Road. It was to be our place of residence for the next two-and-a-half days while we were in Singapore.

Name-dropping. It's all about networking and connections.

 Address, website and contact numbers.

Surrounded by shopping centres! Wheee!!!

I was never an orchid fan (to be honest, I used to hate orchids :-/) but... I must say that I've had a slight change of heart ever since I really went flower hunting for the wedding. Some varieties are actually quite pretty! =) Like these ones!

Pretty white orchids in the lobby!

Got our room keycards and proceeded to the 24th floor where our unit was at and... surprise surprise, we found a whole bowl of fresh tropical fruits, along with a bottle of Chilean wine and a box of Merci's Finest Selection chocolates!! <3

I guess it pays to be corporate clients! =D


Now, let me bring you for a virtual tour
around Somerset Grand Cairnhill.

 Living – right.

Random chair shot.

 Orchids in the hall! And that's the dining area behind me.

Close up.

 Closer up.

 Kitchen – left. Good enough to cook with the stove
and heat up stuff with the microwave.

 Kitchen – right. Fridge and washing area.


 2nd bedroom.

Sorry lah, my 14mm pancake lens is just not wide-angle enough to take good shots of bedrooms. Haha. Oh, and I somehow missed out the bathrooms (common with shower stall and master with bathtub) as well as the laundry area that's equipped with a working washing machine. Haha. Virtual tour – semi fail! Bwahahaha.

Anyway, more on Singapore later.
Gotta run. Dinner beckons! =D

ATTN: Lissa
– What? What?!? What's big?

Clark said...

@Pam -- yep. still in LYL... btw they've added 2 new lifts.. come back come back! :P

Pam Song said...

ATTN: Clark
– Tell you a secret... I may be making a return. See how first. =p

And whoaaa... about time with the lifts! Have they got toilets with cloth hand towels now, too?? =p

Clark said...

@Pam -- yey! hopefully it pushes thru.
err.. no cloth hand towels but the ground toilets are pretty spankin' new (well speaking only on the male side of things)... big mirrors, new urinals and a kick-ass dyson hand dryer...

Lissa said...

The hotel room... You went with your in-laws?

Pam Song said...

ATTN: Clark
– Haha. Hopefully lah. Fingers crossed. =p

Whoa... the toilets sound really fancy now! Haha.

ATTN: Lissa
– Yeah, the four of us. But it wasn't a hotel actually. More like a serviced residence.

Lissa said...

Oooooh. Ok. :)

ATTN: Lissa
– Haha. That's why 2 rooms ma. =)
