As stated on their website, "Spizza first opened its door in Club Street in 2002, with the vision of offering affordable yet authentic thin-crusted wood-fired pizzas and tasty Italian dishes to the discerning palates of Singaporeans".

They have recently opened a branch on East Coast Road, and when we've often walked past, it has always been busy. The venue is a little small, and as the night progresses, it can get a little noisy.

Their authentic thin-crusted, wood-fired pizzas are delicious.

You can watch them make pizzas

Spizza's menu is extensive, ranging from salads, pizzas and more.
PARMA E MELONE Thinly-sliced Parma Ham served with Rock Melon ($12++)

PORTOBELLO SALAD Grilled Portobello Mushroom, Cherry Tomatoes, Olives and Feta Cheese ($11++)

What is unique is that their pizzas are named after women (not sure why this is).

ISABELLA PIZZA Tomato, Mozzarella, Parma Ham, Rucola Salad
Medium sized (10-inch ($19++))

No dinner can be complete without dessert, and what better way to end an Italian meal than with . . .

TIRAMISU Homemade classic Tiramisu ($8++)

They also do delivery Islandwide, more information can be found on their website.

Thaipusam 2012

Thaipusam is the Hindu Festival celebrated on the day of full moon during Thai, the Tamil month of January/February, it is held annually in honour of the Hindu God Subramaniam (Lord Murugan).
The devotees begin their 4.5km walk, carrying their kavadis (which in this Singapore humidity, can seem a very long one) from Sri Srinivasa Perumal temple on Serangoon Road in Little India and ends at the Chettiar Hindu temple on Tank Road. More about the festival and the temples can be found on their website.

After a long and tiring 4.5km walk, the devotees proceed to the dismantling area. There was signs of relief on some of their faces as their kavadis were slowly removed. The amazing thing was, there was hardly a drop of blood in sight.

Liebster Blog Awards

I am deeply touched to have been nominated for a Liebster Blog Award by Expat Adventures in Singapore. I had no idea what this was, but upon reading her blog post, and looking at all the other nominees, I gathered that this is a way of showing love for blogs you follow. Thank you very much!

'Liebster' means 'favourite' or 'dearest' in German (taken off her blog post). This award, which originated in Germany, recognizes up and coming bloggers with less than 200 followers.

In accepting the award, the recipient agrees to:
  1. Thank the person that gave the award and link back to their blog.
  2. Copy and paste the award to your blog
  3. Reveal the 5 blogs you have chosen to award and let them know by commenting on their blog.
  4. Hope they pay it forward by accepting and awarding it to bloggers they would like to honour.
The 5 blogs I have therefore chosen to spotlight are:

A fellow expat and friendly person, who shares her experiences since arriving in Singapore 5 months ago.  Well worth reading.

*CLOSED* Dr. Cafe @ 112 Katong

I decided to try this cafe, which is located on the first floor of the recently opened I12 Katong shopping mall on East Coast Road.

As you can see from the photo above, it has a familiar feel to it. It looks a lot like Starbucks, don't you think.  The cafe is set out very similar to, even right down to the food cabinet, the merchandise they have for sale, and the sizes of drinks - yes they have tall, grande and large too.

I ordered a cappuccino, and a chocolate donut. The chocolate donut was average, the chocolate was too rich, and the dough used wasn't light enough. The cappuccino wasn't what I had expected, it lacked coffee (maybe I should've ordered it with 2 shots of coffee).


I will go back and give it another go, just the coffee though. Oh, and they also have decaf, there's not many coffee shops in Singapore that do.
