Dinner at the Orient Express—or The Eastern & Orient Express
Got invited to a fancy dinner at The Eastern&Orient Express train last Saturday. Apparently, the E&O has these “dinner trains” three times a month where you pay heaps of money to have a fancy dinner onboard the first-class amenities of the train while it travels from the Keppel Road station in Singapore to Malaysia-and back. So not only do you need to dress up for dinner, you need to bring your passport as well. V
It was pretty exciting because the name itself Orient Express connotes Old-World Victorian glamour. The train looked the part, and even the station was an old colonial building, so it added to the whole ambience. I can’t help feeling that we should have been loading old LV or Goyard trunks into the train in keeping with the whole scene.
I only have a few photos because these were taken from my friend’s camera phone. Pathetic, right? That was the only camera between the two of us…. Haay, I really should buy a P&S na! Soon, when I have the money, promise. Anyways, here are some pics…
