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 […]

I followed Singapore’s National Heritage Board Heritage Trail app to discover that alot of my parents favourite old school spots were just walking distance from each other. Several of these stops were on the Balestier trail with the exception of Galicier and Kway’s popiah. From Malay kuehs to old school white loaves of bread, old […]

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.

It seems like so long ago since I left Beijing, it’s only been 3 years but it feels like so much longer. Last week, I was so happy to share the best day of my life with my “Beijing family” and it brought back so many memories of living in China. I never got round to […]


Here is my current favourite hangout named after Franz Kafka, the genius behind those existential dark books. The eponymous name, however bears no semblance nor have any reference to the late author, the Macanese owners simply love Kafka and decided to name their Café after him. I can’t get enough of their beautiful textured wall […]
