Food Tour Guide / ‘Mother Bird’

Charmaine is an avid food lover, stemming also from the multi-cultural city-state, of the much sunnier, Singapore. In 2012, a chance encounter sealed her deal in Amsterdam, a place she today, calls home sweet home. It was love at first sight, like nothing she could have ever imagined or expected of Amsterdam.
