Amanda Seyfried has never been to Singapore before. But she has a pretty good idea of what she wants to eat, see and do in our tiny island — some of the things suggested by her husband, actor Thomas Sadoski, who was first here when he performed in a stage production of The Tempest.
By the time we meet her at the start of her first day here, the adventurous Amanda has already been on foot to the Buddha Tooth Relic temple and managed to grab her favourite Starbucks before uber-ing back to her hotel — all before nine o'clock. The other must-sees on her list are slightly unexpected. A nature lover who owns a farm back in the States, she wants to catch the monkeys at Lower Peirce Reservoir and see the Botanic Gardens, if she has the time. And, rather surprisingly, Amanda is keen to try quite a spread of Singapore fare including kaya, laksa and chilli crab — we later find out she can handle spicy food. Read on to see what else she did in her short time here.
