One of the projects I was busy with earlier this year involved me running around Singapore and being a total blogger, taking pictures of everywhere I’d been and everything I’d eaten.
About 2 months of feverish writing, photo-taking and lots of support from my friends (thanks everyone for your patience and help!), I can finally talk about it now that they’ve officially launched!

Yelp is a new directory site in Singapore that will help you find anything you need, whether it be shopping, services or places to eat (Singaporeans>> think of it like a hungrygowhere but extending to everything else beyond food). What’s great about Yelp is that beyond just listings and details, it also has personal opinions from various people on how good (or bad) these places are, which is always helpful in deciding whether you want to check out the place or not. Yelp is already pretty popular overseas, especially in the United States, but it’s now making its foray into Singapore and I’m glad to have been a part of it!
Here are my reviews below, little commentary on the places I’ve been to and that I recommend. Check it out in the little widget below or on the website here, I’ll be adding reviews periodically on the more interesting places that I’ve been to. Or drop me an email if you’re new to Singapore and need some recs!
You can be a part of Yelp too! It welcomes reviews from everyone and anyone, and the best part is that it also comes in a convenient mobile app so you can Yelp on the go. This was particularly useful for me to upload pix and my thoughts on the go, and I used it frequently to figure out whether the place I was headed to was any good or not.
Special thanks to Adrianna and Marcus who are part of the Yelp Singapore team… thanks for all your help!
This post is not sponsored by Yelp – I was recruited as a Yelp Scout to help update business information, write reviews, upload photos, and generally make Yelp more useful. I was paid for my work – all my Yelp reviews are written by me and are my experiences.
