Tranquility Island

In the southern part of Singapore, there lies a beautiful island by name of Sentosa. Literally translated, Sentosa means Tranquillity in Malay. It was almost 10 years since I last stepped on the island, and yet indeed, it still possesses the rejuvenating and calmness effect – away from the frantic city life of mainland Singapore. Destiny had it that amidst my difficult period in my life, I was called onto the island to work on a conference for a week – and there begins my little adventure in the island. As the conference was held in Shangri la Rasa Sentosa, Siloso Beach and its surroundings was my hangout place throughout the one week I was there.

The Ben and Jerry’s outlet was definitely one of those places I looked forward to visit whenever I manage to squeeze a break from my conference.

Tucked in a little corner facing Delifrance café, with adorable decors of colourful and cutesy tables, the Dublin Mudslide Milkshake is a must try for all milkshake fans out there!

Also, amidst the resort itself, it comprises of a waterfront restaurant by the name of Sharkey’s. Sharkey’s at Rasa Quay allows you to have the freshest seafood with the sea breeze.

As recommended, we tried the Chilli Crab and the Seafood Udon. All the crabs are at least 1kg each and it is said that the heavier the Sri Lankan crab, the better the quality of the meat – I totally agreed.

The crab was meaty and juicy, and the gravy, although a tad spicy and too starchy, was a great combination. And what’s chilli crab without the deep fried or the steamed buns?

And the Udon, although a little small in portion for the price of $16.00, the ingredients were rather plentiful.
