It's been a while .....


Hey Cosmos (that's the name of my travel journal ) ,

It's me again. I know I have not been updating for quite a while but life has been too hectic to post. I know that the purpose of this site is to record my travel journeys but other things just came in play so I hardly write anything to you.

For the random stranger that happen to come by this page --- yes you ! I am talking to you ..... How did you find this page because it's definitely not high on any Google search listing . Anyway since you are here, and if you do continue reading you are welcome to this sneak peak of a part of my life. 

So this year I am going to celebrate my 10th year anniversary so I thought I should probably write to this journal again so I can record those memories so let's see how that turns out.

Anyway Cosmos , since like the last decade or so , despite not writing here, I have returned to Italy again , went Japan two more times , visited London almost every year except during COVID-19 era of 2020 to 2021, went to Aussie Melbourne(again) and Brisbane. So yeah ..... At first I thought of recapping by writing about those trips but I have decided I shall just look forward and write about future trips instead.

Hopefully the same problem of not writing will not crop up again.

So here I am again .... Back to writing to you. 

Till later Cosmos, 

Love , Ian Z

Singapore Rediscover Voucher : Fairmont Hotel

A new normal ! 

No travel overseas but that will not stop Singaporeans from travelling within the country. Its the wanderlust in us. 

When the Gov introduced the SRV of $100 per SG adult, its literally Heaven sent. 

I mean whats a better staycation ? 
Answer: A cheaper or free staycation!

So if you do not mind 3 or lower stars hotel which when offset by the voucher will be literally free, you can choose from lots of such hotel.
Else you need to top up.

And topped up we did for Fairmont Hotel.

Checkin crowd was huge but they allow one family member to checkin while the rest wait at another level. Brilliant management thus we did not get the fiasco as mentioned in the media with Grand Park Hotel Orchard. Ours checkin was still the longest we ever experienced but its freakin SRV and school holiday so we were very understanding of the situation (1h at most).

Above: my fav furniture - the lazy sofa.

Its been a long time since I have posted anything. Well I am getting older thus the energy level not used to what I used to possess. 

Anyway, stay safe everyone. Covid19 may have been a 2020 curse but hopefully we will all emerge better people after this.

HalalFood@sg All Things Delicious.

If cakes are your thing,  then head to All Things Delicious.  Located at 34 Arab St, 199733,  this shops used only halal ingredients for their cakes.  My personal favourite is its toffee fudge Cake....... Simply awesome.... Not too sweet, just the right balance.  Opens 11am onwards on most days. Try try try..... You won't believe how good it is.
