MasterCard #PricelessSG @ Marina Bay Cruise Centre with Seal!

 MasterCard PricelessSG Experience - Forest Equarius Hotel Marina Bay Cruise Centre
Second day of my MasterCard PricelessSG experience, woke up early in the morning from my comfy bed in Hard Rock Hotel. Headed to Starz Restaurant to have my breakfast and saw a cute father and son playing around. The best part of the breakfast in Starz is none other than their porridge corner. I had so much fun decorating mine with lots of century and salted eggs haha.

After breakfast I went for a walk around Hard Rock Hotel and figured they have a very nice Water Park area with a huge swimming pool, sandy beach corner, poolside bar and so much more! Too bad I didn't bring my swimwear for this trip. Bumped into other media friends and tried out her wide lens on my new camera. The pictures definitely looked awesome! Highly recommended if you wanna camwhore with many friends~

After a quickly refreshing up in my hotel room, we then gathered at the lobby before heading to Equarius Hotel Rooms Tour. I guess we were brought to the special and private suite of Equarius Hotel as I couldn't find any other images on the internet. Check out below photos:

We took the lift to Angsana Room of Equarius Hotel and you will be amazed by the view and greenery which surrounds your room. It will be a totallyquiet place for couples to enjoy their honeymoon or weekend getaways. Here's how the indoor looks like:

They do have a spacious bathroom and a simple bedroom. The main attraction of this room would be the outdoor area where you can see Singapore City and enjoy the sounds of nature. If you like a place that's close to nature, pick this room =)

We then took the buggy to a different room at Equarius Hotel - Beach Villas

Here's me and Michelle on the buggy!

We were brought to one of the Equarius Hotel Beach Villa - Deluxe Pool Suite. By booking this room, you will able to enjoy great sea and city view of Singapore City from Sentosa Island. Each suite has their own swimming pool and can easily accommodate a family of 5.

There are 2 floors in the Equarius Hotel Beach Villas and you should check out the spacious living room, several hotel rooms, personal spa room and the bathroom made from glass within the hotel room. I do hope that I can stay here next time!

After Equarius Hotel Tour, we then went to Forest 森, a contemporary Chinese dining restaurant to enjoy our lunch. Check out the indoor canopy design of the restaurant. Forest 森 restaurant consists of a canopy centerpiece representing interlocking branches and leaves supported by four magnificent tree columns.

Celebrity chef Sam Leong who helms several establishments, represented Singapore at some of the world's most prestigious culinary events, as well as served world famous public figures such as Minister mentor Lee Kuan Yew, former US presidents George Bush and Bill Clinton, and Queen Elizabeth II of England in his illustrious career that spans 26 years. He was named Best Asian Ethnic Chef of the Year at the World Gourmet Summit Awards of Excellence in 2001, 2002 and 2004, Executive Chef of the Year and Chef of the Year in 2005. In short, celebrity chef Sam Leong who won numerous awards has made Forest 森 a good place to visit for a great dining experience

I actually quite like their kitchen as we have an unobstructed view of chefs at work, and dine in a relaxing atmosphere.

After a quick change, we then departed to MasterCard Priceless Singapore press Conference. The press con venue was located just beside Forest 森. The open ground was laid out with artificial grass carpet that made this place a good spot for photography =) It would be really awesome if  it were a real grass carpet.

Chilled drinks were served while we were waiting for other guests to arrive.  On 12 October, MasterCard launched Priceless Singapore, making life even more Priceless with unique and novel experiences specially curated for cardholders who live and visit Singapore shores.

Be it pre-ordering the latest look right off the international runways, hobnobbing with Europe’s royals at a charity gala, or living in the lap of luxury at invitation-only hotel suites, MasterCard’s Priceless Singapore connects people with their passions –shopping, travel, food and entertainment – and gives select access to a collection of exceptional experiences across the city.

The MasterCard Priceless Cities program takes the long-running and iconic ‘Priceless’ brand from one that celebrates Priceless moments to one that enables and brings these Priceless experiences to life.

Singapore is the first city in Southeast Asia to become a Priceless City, joining the ranks of iconic cities where MasterCard has rolled out its global program, including New York, London, Beijing and Sydney. The choice reflects Singapore’s importance and relevance as a rich, diverse and multifaceted hub, attracting people to live, visit, work and play.

MasterCard’s confidence in Singapore’s depth and breadth of rich experiences to deliver priceless moments is testament that Singapore has indeed come of age. We believe that Priceless Singapore will resonate well with both Singapore residents and our international visitors.”, commented Sophia Ng, Assistant Chief Executive for Marketing, Singapore Tourism Board (STB)

Matthew Driver, President, South East Asia, MasterCard Worldwide, explained: 
“In Singapore, our biggest obsession is food, and shopping is our national pastime. We have great attractions that have re-ignited our love for our city, and world-class entertainment, arts and culture gravitate here – Singapore is an Asian hub with a sophisticated, internationally-minded population and attracts well-heeled travelers from regional markets.”
