(pronounced suh-mal-’yAy)

In Medieval Provençal times they were saumaliers, animal pack drivers who evolved during Middle French kingdom to become court officials charged with transportation of supplies. So what does a modern day Sommelier actually do?

Robert M. Parker, Jr

Beijing 27 Feb , Shanghai Mar 2 , Hong Kong Mar 5, Kuala Lumpur Mar 9 & Singapore Mar 16

HEDONISTIC  “DELIVERING MAXIMUM DRINKING PLEASURE WITH A RICH, FULL BODY AND LOADS OF RIPE FRUIT FLAVORS. NEITHER INTROSPECTIVE NOR INTELLECTUAL, BUT RATHER PROVIDING SHEER DELIGHT, JOY AND EUPHORIA. HEDONISTIC WINES CAN BE CRITICIZED BECAUSE IN ONE SENSE THEY PROVIDE SO MUCH ECSTASY THAT THEY CAN BE LABELLED “OBVIOUS”, BUT THEY ARE TOTALLY GRATIFYING WINES THAT FASCINATE AND ENTHRALL.

Culina Bar

Hunting and gathering for food on the island of Singapore is very much an urban affair with practically all produce flown or trucked in. There’s no foraging in the countryside or visiting producers, no farmers markets where you come face to face with the artisan growers and producers. Read More >

Favourite Chicken Rice in Singapore – Wee Nam Kee New Premises
Wee Nam Kee new premises at United Square

Having just visited the new premises of Wee Nam Kee Chicken Rice today, 24 November, 2013, I can report that it is still my favourite Chicken Rice in Singapore and the new location at United Square more convenient and accessible than there old Novena location. Moreover, with a brand new, modern fit-out and much more space, the place feels a lot more conducive and everything more organized, and I sense that the move is a ‘breathe of new life’. Read More >
