A Night at Gurney Paragon

Gurney Drive is bustling with people as shoppers throng at Gurney Plaza but the current highlight is Gurney Paragon - the retail-cum-residential complex. It opens on 16th January and this was my first time at Gurney Paragon and my friends and I tried out the Brussels restaurant (which will be reported more at  My Tasting Outloud : Brussels Beer Cafe ). I read somewhere that soon a hotel of 200 rooms called Baby G will be open right here at Gurney Paragon. Baby G shares the same management as G Hotel, right next door.

We walked down memory lane of the place now known as Gurney Paragon and was once St. Joseph Novitiate,a historical building. We read through every frame of the wall with its pictures and learn its history. I only knew it was occupied by the Uplands International school till they moved to Batu Feringghi.
