The Shophouse | Jamie Gorman on Singapore | Jamie Gorman | Travelshopa

You know his store, so now let’s take a moment to get to know Singapore through the eyes of the Creative Director of The Shophouse, Jamie Gorman.

 


 

Favourite thing about living in Singapore…

The mass of greenery in such a highly populated city is amazing. It always makes you feel calm and at ease

 

A quirk that you’ve observed among the local people…

Their obsession with food. It’s a foodie paradise, but do they all need to eat lunch at the same time. It’s not going to run out.

 

What sets Singapore apart from any other city…

It’s reinventing itself, constantly. It’s a completely different place from when we moved here 5 years ago. One thing doesn’t change though, it’s always immaculately clean and maintained.

 

Your favourite local haunt…

It might sound clichéd, but we love Brasserie Les Saveurs at the St Regis. It’s been our second home for nearly 5 years. Such a lovely room, wonderful service and they have a heavy hand with the champagne!

 

Your favourite place to shop…

Going to Thompson Road and getting fresh flowers and orchids.

 

Singapore’s best hidden gem…

The Cook and Brew gastro pub at the Westin Hotel.

 

One place a tourist must visit…

Gardens by The Bay

 

Where can we find you in your downtime

Sunday afternoon at our home at Sentosa Cove with a G & T in hand.
