So, this is one of my happy places in Singapore. The Company of Cats! You pay by the hour and get to hang out with friendly cats. And if you luck out at feeding hour in the late afternoon, you get to see all of them come out to play! The other secret I have […]

I haven’t had the chance to spend much time at the National Gallery Singapore, apart from a long degustation lunch at Odette I wasn’t aware that there was local Peranakan celebrity chef Violet Oon with her National Gallery outfit. The space is gorgeous and achingly hip. The food – rich, flavourful with a modern twist. We had […]

Going home after living away for more than a decade always feels new and old at the same time. Catching up with old friends at new hip places and going to the same places I’ve been going to for decades with my parents. I still feel displaced, alienated, happy, sad all at once and I […]

Textiles and fabric shopping has been one of my big loves for a while and I really miss Beijing, searching for vintage fabrics in the least likely places and working with my tailor to get things made. Only now, I try to sew them myself! I have never shopped for textiles at Arab street before but […]

Still playing catch up on what I’ve been up to, eating, travelling, making stuff etc. A couple of months back, I was home and took my mum to the famous Whampoa fish head steamboat in Balestier, famous also for their shrimp paste fried chicken harcheong gai.

I am falling quite far behind blogging again as I am knee deep in work. Still playing catch up on travel and eating posts from the last couple of months and still scheduling a couple more from last summer! The National Gallery Singapore is a stunning space and worth a visit just for the architecture. […]

Hello! Sorry for the over a month silence, I have been waiting for news and direction from my web designer and there are still bugs to fix and I am trying to hold my excitement for the launch! AND HERE WE ARE! Lots have been happening, and still happening and I can’t wait to tell […]

  Short trip home and met up with friends checking out this new cake shop in Bukit Pasoh – gorgeous wedding cakes and their patisserie isn’t too bad either. Contrary to their name, they’ve actually taken the other route by reducing sugar content in their baked goods. “We also cut down between 20% to 60% […]

Tiong Bahru has become a trendy hotspot these days – nothing like the area I visited growing up. My aunt and uncle, both teachers used to live in the neighbourhood and back in the days it was very much a blue collar worker kind of residence, nothing like the hipster vibe it gives out today. […]
