Overcrowding and rising property prices have spurred adventurous tastemakers to move into the heartlands of Singapore, creating intimate food and retail enclaves. Antoinette, a french patisserie run by Chef Pang, is tucked in a non-descript quartier Lavender. Having their flagship bistrot away from the noisy and flood prone Orchard Road is indeed a wise choice. It is definitely a welcome respite from the hectic city life in Singapore. Antoinette is located in Penhas Road 30. Surrealist Love Scene, a multi label fashion showroom, is open to the public for a moderate dose of retail therapy every Saturday. Our designer loves the relaxed ambience of the space and as well as Makatana Valley Wild Fig Bath and Body Cream, a product distributed by the Surrealist Love Scene group. The showroom is located at Midview City, Sin Ming Lane 22, at unit 07-85.
