How did we celebrate 10 years together? We spent a day in a rain-soaked tropical park with a camera, a tripod, a remote – and each other – doing our very own self-shot photo shoot!

Why is everything red and white? The 9th August is Singapore’s National Day!

One day getaway to Pulau Ubin

P1100360We have been wanting to go on an adventure to Pulau Ubin island for years – but it took a three day break to give us the energy do it!

Pulau Ubin has been preserved, at least for now, because of the fragile ecosystems that still exist there. It is like time has stopped. There are some abandoned mines, and a small kampong village, and not much else. Paths and riding trails are spread all over the island, and you can rent a bike (super cheap and easy) and start exploring right away. Continue reading

What a refreshing and happy way to start the year! We love it. Continue reading

Jicama – the best unknown veggie!

Do you know what this is?

You really should! This is Jicama, one of our absolute favourite vegetables – we always have one in the fridge… and most people don’t know even what it is! It is refreshing, crunchy, slightly sweet, and easy to prepare… you have to try it!

Mid-Autumn Mooncakes, and lots of Lanterns…

What are all these mooncakes and pomelos? And why is Chinatown covered in lanterns? It’s the Mid-Autumn festival! (Or ‘lantern’ or ‘mooncake’ festival…) We had never heard about this Chinese celebration before we moved to Singapore, and have really looked forward to it this year.
