American influencer Miki Rai, who is on holiday in Singapore, has rated local snacks found in her hotel room after arriving.

In a TikTok video on Thursday, she shared that she and her doctor boyfriend Kevin were too tired to venture out and instead tried some snacks in bed.

These included laksa potato chips by home-grown brand F.East, Awfully Chocolate truffles and made-in-Singapore butter cookies by SnapSnap.

“Rating our first meal in Singapore. So excited to be back,” the 26-year-old nurse from Seattle, who has 2.5 million followers on TikTok, wrote in the caption.

Both appeared to enjoy the snacks and rated them highly, giving the potato chips nine out of 10 and the truffles 8.7 out of 10.

The couple are on a six-week holiday, which includes Singapore, Taiwan, South Korea and Japan.

She mentioned in the comment section, which had many Singaporean netizens giving her food suggestions, that she will hold a fan meet-up on Sunday. The free event will be held at Cafe Natsu in Joo Chiat Road from 4 to 6pm, and there is a Google sign-up sheet in her Instagram bio.

She subsequently uploaded a few more clips, including one of her boyfriend working out in presumably the hotel gym at 5am and another of her unboxing items she received, including a limited-edition rose-gold Dyson Corrale hair straightener.

She also shared a video on Instagram of her rating the food on her 16-hour Singapore Airlines flight to Singapore, saying: “We tried the world’s best airplane food.”

She gave the stir-fried pork and cup noodles five out of five stars, while the fish dish and stir-fried prawns got three stars.
