Reunion with André & Monette, and Orchard Road

Aloha Everyone,

Taiwanese dim sum lunch was delicious and the company was wonderful. While André and J.J. were catching up with news of their high school classmates, Monette gave me pointers on places to see and foods to try in Singapore.

Our friends were in Singapore for a few days on R&R, but their trip coincided with typhoon Kammuri that devastated Metro Manila. The closure of Ninoy Aquino International Airport delayed their flight until around 4:00 am.

Orchard Road is where the rich and famous go to shop, play and dine, and where tourists overspend their shopping budget. But behind all the glitter and opulence, the area has a rich, diverse and interesting history.

Aloha -- Cathi
