Maybe this is a little late for a post titled as such, but I got inspired while prancing around imaginary magazine recommendations. I’ve read the book but not watched the movie, so personally, I don’t know if there’s a disconnect between the two. What I do know is that Elizabeth Gilbert found herself while eating, praying and loving along the way in her travels. I don’t suppose we all need to do whatever she did in order to restore some sense of balance in our lives, but there’ll always come a time when we need to just get away for a little while.
Here are some of my recommendations on where you should pamper yourself, while keeping your tummy, soul and heart sane.
I was introduced this gem of a place by a friend who frequents it. There are a few outlets, and they make awesome quiches, pies and tarts. Visit the outlet at Kiliney Road for brunch on a weekend before hitting the stores afterwards.
2. TWG Tea
One of my favourites is TWG Tea, a place that’s perfect for afternoon teas (they have an endless array of teas to choose from) and chats with girlfriends. Their tea salons serve food apart from sandwiches, macarons and the like, and you can get mean main dishes for dinner. End that dinner with one of their desserts in the display counters and tell yourself it’s all worth the price.
Work up a sweat with a Pilates session set amidst the lush greenery of Bishan Park. Let your mind and body re-connect while you leave the rest of the world behind. Truly a getaway without getting away.
A great way to pamper yourself with a stay at this five-star spa and resort in Sentosa. Not exactly kind to the wallet, but very kind to your heart and mind. If I could stay there forever (assuming I never leave Singapore), I probably would.
