The Jens Heart Map located next to the elevator lobby is one of your best sources of tips and recommendations for things to see and taste in Singapore. This wall map is a unique concept developed by Hotel Jen Tanglin Singapore which allows guests to share personal experiences and recommendations when exploring Singapore. Here is my simple itinerary during my weekend trip to Singapore:

From Hotel Jen Tanglin Singapore, I booked a GrabCar going to 328 Katong Laksa, a hole-in-the-wall Located along East Coast Road in the area of Katong residential area. I ordered a small serving of Laksa (SGD5.00), one serving of Otah (SGD1.30) and Fresh Lime Juice (SGD1.80). Having my first taste of authentic Singaporean laksa was a very memorable experience for me.

From 328 Katong Laksa, I walked all the way to Koon Seng Road in the Geylang area. There I saw a row of Peranakan Houses that gave me a glimpse of Singapore heritage. I find it admirable that Singaporeans were able to preserve their ancestral houses which now serve as windows to the past for the present generation.

From Geylang, I booked a GrabCar ride going to the Buddha Tooth Relic Temple located in the Chinatown district. This imposing structure houses a temple and a museum, and is a popular destination for tourists. The place is well maintained and entrance is free of charge.

From the temple, I crossed the road towards the Maxwell Food Center to try out the Chicken Rice (SGD5.00) at Tian Tian Hainanese Chicken Rice. From Maxwell, I walked back to Chinatown for some souvenir shopping.

From Chinatown, I booked my ride going to Orchard Road for some more shopping. I visited Paragon Shopping Center to buy phone accessories, and I also checked-out some of the boutiques at ION Orchard to shop for colognes. Before heading back to the hotel, I had dinner at Putien, a Michelin starred restaurant at ION Orchard serving authentic Chinese cuisine from the Fujian Province.
