Singapore the Lion city and in my words “little India” is one of the best known countries in the world especially known for their Dining ,Hospitality, Business, Entertainment and Shopping. I went to Singapore for a project purpose and i really loved the working environment , food and friendly nature of people over there. As i am foodie and traveler i visited various places, and enjoyed foods of various tastes especially Italian, Chinese and Indian. Believe me you will never get a feel of missing home food if you are in Singapore i can simply say you that “Missing Home food No worries you are in Singapore”
As i am foodie I simply can say that apart from work and entertainment we can also say Singapore as “land of
various cuisines “ , “So eat whatever you like, you are in Singapore” and i like the way Singaporeans enjoy food inspire from various cuisines especially Chinese, Indian and give a touch of Singaporeans, and enjoy it http://discover.stayfareast.com/
