I have fallen behind reading and most things, but have finally got round to pulling myself together. This book is a great thriller. Trauma, crime and amnesia all rolled into one twisted plot. Trauma does many things to people and their sense of self and identity: violence, war, rape, cancer and quite the book for […]

Baking is really not my forte because of my lack of precision and I have always relied on boxed brownie mix, before stumbling upon this adapted recipe and with trial and error from this success flourless chocolate cake recipe I’ve made several times. I started to bake a little more so I could have subjects […]

future world art science museum singapore

The posters for the show were impressive, so I’d say it was a little bit of a letdown because the exhibit is tiny, although the works were pretty good. It’s certainly not worth the entry fee of $15 as a Singaporean and $17 for non locals. For a little more of that fee, you could go […]

I love how Google gives me the low-down on everything exciting and interesting that happened over the centuries on this date. It’s been a hard couple of months and I haven’t felt ready to write about it as it still feels like I am living on a parallel universe trying to make sense of it […]

I’ve done a fair bit of soul searching, plenty of reading and working on self improvement. Thich Nhat Hanh is truly a peace guru. This is a very easy and digestible read and reaching deep to find our own inner Buddha, practising loving kindness. “Ending violence in yourself, your family, your community and the world.” […]

seng's noodle bar singapore

I’m falling behind the blog again these days with lots of interesting meetings and projects of late. Love the details on this spoon and the tile tables! (Chong Wen Ge Café down the street from the noodle bar!) WL and I never got to catch up in Paris despite so many (half hearted) attempts to […]

This is my friend Oli’s favourite restaurant. Chicken collagen hotpot, and what the Japanese call “beauty hotpot”. This pile of gelatinous white block melts into stock for cooking your meats and vegetables. It was interesting but a tad too salty for me, but I’d have it every once in a while, you get the option […]

I’ve known Caroline since I was 18 way before she got into the home decor business. She always had immaculate taste in accessories, makeup, clothes etc. The creative spark extended to home furnishings. I went with her to sales and she threw lots of intimate gatherings to get rid of the overflow and supply of […]

I’ve always believed that certain books have a time and place of coming into your lives. There are books I’ve read over a decade ago and didn’t enjoy, but picking them up over 10 years later, I have a completely different perspective, enjoying it in many ways I couldn’t a decade ago. I’ve had Michael […]

So, I’ve been in a slightly awkward situation since I’ve been back in Singapore. I am starting to receive invitations for free meals via email and my social channels, and in return “to post on IG” or on the blog. Blogging for many friends I know is a labour of love and it has lost its fun […]
