Valentine’s Stay-Cation @ Village Hotel Changi
It’s Valentine’s 2020 and Wifey and I make a pact to not buy each other anything, apart from a card because we would treat each other to a stay-cation. We have been down to Changi Village and Changi Beach a few times recently and realised we have never stayed here. For some reason, the ‘pull’ comes from Sentosa. But one ‘lunch with wifey’ and ‘lunch with Obaachan’ in the last month or so was changing that thought process. We have seen a rather emerging cool and hipster side of Changi Village. So today we broke the mould and we hit Changi Village for Valentine’s Stay-Cation @ Village Hotel Changi.
Valentine’s Stay-Cation @ Village Hotel Changi became a weekend of surprises. I would never have seen the Village Hotel or Changi Village as foodie Meccas, but we hit one of the very best Japanese restaurants ever – Kyuubei on the ground floor of the hotel for lunch. A place that I find out afterwards is a small family-run affair. We have a lovely Italian dinner at La Cantina in Venezia, on the 8th floor of the hotel sat on an outside balcony, overlooking the sea and Pulau Ubin – not one oil tanker or cargo ship in sight, just Sea Eagles, Parakeets, blue skies, seas and yachts. We then revisit an old favourite after a lovely lay-in on Sunday for lunch at Little Island Brewing Co. Changi Village is rocking folks and has become a must-visit again, and again.
See all the food blogs individually on Islifearecipe.net. This was one special fun, family, foodie weekend.
Wifey was very lucky to get a rewritten Roger Hargreaves’ book for her Valentine’s card. It was sort of a ‘book card’, called Little Miss Mary Late. I have no idea where I got the idea for the book content adaptation. Weird that. I did try to ask Wifey but she was still getting her make-up on, packing and changing her outfit for the 3rd time and delaying us leaving.
Let’s have a more detailed look into Valentine’s Stay-Cation @ Village Hotel Changi, shall we?
