They need to hire KZ to do some consulting work.
+1, have you been to KZ for shabbos? Why haven't you convinced Dan that it is perhaps the nicest Shabbos in the world? He thinks the KZ restaurant during the week is the same as shabbos...  Educate him. He will be forever in debt to you.

On sentosa you can spens a lot of time. Hkg has Disney and ocean park with long lines. I did a vip tour on sunday in Disney, was fun, but expensive, sentosa doesn't have huge lines

I have several times. Stayed at Shangri-la, and shabbas was very good, I agree.

The Mul Hayam during the week is nothing to sneeze at.

Out of curiosity, isn't that coffee, milk, & water? Chalav akum is better in Singapore than HK?

I was told that you can't drink the milk in singapore either, but coffe bean has soy milk, so you can ask to put that in.
I was a full week in singapore and was in the restaurant every night. Food isn't good at all, service was bad and unfriendly

I think we all said a week in SIN was too much ;)
Was there Fri-Sun and thought the food was good, though I didn't have to resort to repeats. Which as I told AJK when he was considering getting food from SIN, would get quite monotonous.

I had a very good time and didn't think a week is to much especially if you travel with kids and a nursing wife, things take time, but yes, it can be done in 2 days. Maybe for a day or 2 the restaurant would be ok, but more was very bad...
Not only the food, the whole atmosphere and service...

@ milk issue. I heard it's like China and it's a issue of being kosher

Apparently there are two meals for shabbas, one for young professionals and one regular. Anyone have any recommendations for which to make reservations?

Wasn't like that last year, but why not pick young professionals?

The waiter, who may or may not know, said it's mostly young singles. Just wondering if it married couples would be more suitable. Not sure.
