Marina Food Loft and a culture SHOCK
I might have scared some of you off with the prices of food in Singapore in my Chilli’s entry
recently. The fact is, the prices of food in Sin City is extremely affordable if you know where to dine. We’re no foodie bug so we did not specifically go to any place looking for Singapore’s famous food.
We had our meals at Marina Food Loft
as it is within a walking distance from the hotel
Rice dishes like the above cost S$3.80 only. Try getting the same thing in the food court in KLCC, how much will you have to pay? At least above RM7 right? So if you don’t convert, food is actually cheaper in Singapore.
Dessert such as this Ginkgo Barley costs S$2 only. After a HOT day outside, we definitely welcome this dessert to cool us down :D
Now, I want to share something with you guys. I don’t know about you guys but what I encountered while dining in Singapore is certainly something NEW to ME!
While we were looking for a place to sit, we saw this empty table with a packet of tissue placed on it. We thought someone had left it behind after having their meal there so we just pushed the packet of tissue aside and sat there!
While I was having my meal, I saw a lady approaching our table with an angry look (she looks like one of the Angry Birds) and took away her packet of tissue. I was not aware why she was so angry until I looked around and saw …
More packet of tissue on tables!
OMG! So that is the Singaporean culture of ‘booking’ their seats! My gawd! Did you know? Well.. NOW I know! @_@
In case you missed it, here’s a list of where we went in Singapore
