During my trip to Singapore earlier this month, I was lucky to have been invited to a wine dinner hosted by the legendary Dr N.K. and Melina Yong. Dr N.K. Yong is a medical doctor by profession, but a world renowned world expert. One of his famed act was conversion of his swimming pool at home to a wine cellar. Melina is Dr Yong’s beautiful wife, an excellent amateur chef and cooks to professional level. She is famed for creating dishes that matched the wines of Dr Yong’s perfectly.
One of my best friend who now lives in Singapore is a good friend of Dr N.K. & Melina Yong. So I was lucky to have been invited to their house to join their dinner that night. They have an amazing house and I had a chance to visit N.K.’s amazing cellar as well. It was the first time I have seen anyone with a purpose built cellar in Asia that has temperature controlled down to 10 degrees Celsius. I must say I had a wonder night, great food, great wine, great house and great company! Thanks N.K. & Melina!
