2) Dogs & Bone - Upp East Coast Rd (a fave joint for expats to meet other expats... internationaly)

3) Georges Mad Bar & Cafe - East Coast Rd, b4 Siglap Ctr

4) Chevy - Katong Village

5) not forgetting d supermarket, e.g: Cold Storage @ Parkway / Siglap Ctr / Katong Mall...

6) 360 degree Cable Ski Park - East Coast Pk (lots of expats mum bring their tots for ski lessons...)

Feeling bored? U may wanna consider getting a pet. Count yourself lucky to be staying in the east. There r some v good n friendly pet shops in Lorong L Telok Kurau, this place called Bright Centre. There is also a v good n reputable The Animal Clinic, too. I always bring my dog to the vet for check up. There is even a pet friendly cafe too.
