I have discovered more about Singapore during my medical sabbatical back home than I ever did growing up and living there for 24 years. My story for the SCMP here.   Halal food: mutton murtabak at Zam Zam Singapore. Hanging out with fowls (black swan included!) at the Singapore Botanic Gardens. Dinner at Old Airport […]

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 […]

I took up the offer to visit my old friend Fish and spend time with her beautiful family who were on an NGO secondment in Melaka. Spending quality time and reminiscing about the old days over 17 years ago (!) had to be my favourite part of the trip, never mind the food. I love […]

Somehow, Hokkaido cheesecake is all the rage in this region. I love them all those Japanese cheese cakes and LeTao does a pretty […]

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 […]

Catching up with a backlog of photos and plenty of drafted entries and trying to polish up my lightroom skills while I’m at it. My friend Lydia who’s been living in Taipei for 10 years on and off now recommended this spot where she gets her regular beef noodles fix. Rich broth that wasn’t too […]

Apart from the gastronomic pilgrimage on our agenda to Restaurant Paul Bocuse, the textile museum was on my to-do list. Since I took up sewing classes this year. The Textile Museum was on the verge of closing down this year as funds were pulled out, I didn’t follow up on the news but it was […]
