Found these photos from over a year ago and realised that I never wrote about my last Taipei trip. I no longer go on the hunt for “best this and that” following the crowds, but instead spend more time in the moment, wandering and discovering instead of checking things off a list. Here’s what I […]

katong laksa singapore

Every self respecting person with Peranakan roots will tell you that the best laksa to be had is made by their grandmother, mother or themselves. I think in my generation we all cheat with ready made paste or we vacuum pack our mother’s freshly made rempah (spice paste) along with homemade belacan. Visiting friends are […]

This is a belated post and the restaurant has since gone on to garner one Michelin star. I liked the food here, but have many friends who didn’t. I think the flavours and tastes were well distilled, but the execution still feels like a work in progress. Well, I later learned that chef Han was […]

I’ve been away for so long, there isn’t a particular place I turn to for birthday cakes. A friend got me a cake from Edith Patisserie and I’m not a convert. It’s variations of all butter cream cakes which reminds me of the old days when cakes were made with good old buttercream and everything […]

There are always snaking queues outside this little restaurant at both lunch and dinner time. I found the magic hour of short queues and wait time – about 130pm after the lunch crowd leaves on weekdays. I haven’t had to queue too long for a table and it’s a quick robatayaki fix. The eels are […]

My friend returned three times in two weeks to have this nasi lemak and the extra side order of otah ($8.50!) and the chicken set for $12.80. It made me want to check it out to find out if it’s worth the price tag. I’ve heard many people rave about it… well it’s good, but […]

I’ve walked and driven by Fat Lulu’s many times and always thought what a cute name. I didn’t know what the menu was like – BBQ with an Asian twist, and was pleasantly surprised by the modest and simple menu with specials written on their chalk board. Some days, I come here just for the […]

entre nous creperie singapore

We tried to find some good crepes in Singapore and hadn’t had much luck before taking a recommendation from a friend for Entre Nous Creperie on Seah Street. It has since become our local spot for crepes. The restaurant is always really busy at lunch hour, so head over after 2pm to avoid the crowd. They do […]

Wonderland Jr cover

I really enjoyed my first dinner over theatre “If we Dream too long” by And So Forth. Set in the 1960s based on local writer Goh Poh Seng’s novel. The food was good, but I found moving through each scene to different rooms a little disruptive in that performance. Regardless, I love the concept of […]

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 […]
