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 […]

warehouse hotel singapore

My friend V was in town for work and chose to stay at the newly open Warehouse Hotel – great space and vibe, despite the (lack of) service. Loved the personalised local food items for the mini bar. We met up for breakfast over a rich and tasty bowl of Bak Kut teh, thicker soup […]

kift cafe singapore

Kith Café was giving out free coffees in the neighbourhood on opening day (today) which looked like a good idea drawing in the crowd – but I think most people stopped by for free coffee only without ordering anything else. We went for a carrot cake and the giant chocolate banana cake – both were freshly […]

singapore michelin hawker chan soya chicken

Just last month Mr Chef was in Sydney cooking alongside Singapore’s new gastro hawker sensation Hawker Chan – the world’s cheapest one Michelin star meal. Move over Tim Ho Wan – overrated dim sum franchise of the decade! We went in search of Hawker Chan on chef’s last visit to Singapore hoping to say hello […]

Last weekend, I joined my friends on this interesting bus tour going around Singapore for a glimpse of famous old films made in the city. Interesting as an idea and we had fun, but it was a little too post modern for our appreciation. We understand the constrains of grants and how this is a […]

Love this little spot tucked away in Dempsey. I wasn’t aware that Open Farm Community was another of chef Ryan Cliff’s projects, but a really chilled out rustic space serving up locally grown greens. The food is real and simple, tasty and the portions are fair. I had a green pea soup served with jamon. […]

On this side of the world we don’t celebrate Christmas and the whole works. Well okay we do, just excuses for excesses – more consumerism, parties and revelry. I’m so pleased with how the photos turned out because I didn’t retouch any of them and just relied on natural light through the kitchen windows. Shot […]

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 […]
