ChillaxBBQ does kid’s birthdays now…

ChillaxBBQ does kid's birthdays now... Now there's a first. We had a brief from the clients Iain and Clair, that their daughter, Ottie, was turning 4 and she loves Jellyfish.

Kota 88 @ Siglap

Kota 88 @ Siglap Why have we never been to Kota 88 @ Siglap? It's been here a good few months now. Maybe it's because it sits next to what was Blooies that was not a favourite of ours.

This place absolutely cracking, as in seriously good food and atmosphere. Believe me, guys this place gets mobbed. It was rammed last night. Huge family tables, as we did ...

Jewel @ Changi Airport, and lunch @ Tonito's When Singapore build stuff they truly do build it well.

Lunch @ The Bellevue Resort, Panglao Island, The Philippines

Lunch @ The Bellevue Resort, Panglao Island, The Philippines Today was the day that Amy and I get to take wifey to have Lunch @ The Bellevue Resort, Panglao Island, The Philippines.

And it is just a quality place. The staff are super friendly, the beach is exclusive, the views are stunning and for this blog, the ...
