Custard Apple Jellies

When we’re wandering through the grocery store here in Singapore we ALWAYS go through the fruit section to see if there’s any different tropical fruit in season. Recently we have really been enjoying custard apples. Wait and see the recipe we came up with!

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

Halo-halo Halloween!

Halloween Halo-haloWe are very proud of ourselves at Dancing Greenly – we happen to have found a perfect sweet treat for Halloween!

It is called halo-halo (like ‘hello’ but with an ‘a’). It is a traditional dessert originating from the Philippines. We first tried it when we were in Manila performing on tour. We attended a big welcome party with lots of traditional dishes, and Halo-halo was our favourite. It is another southeast Asian food discovery that we really want to share. Continue reading

The Tastiest Treaties...

 

 

Relax in a jungle bathroom!

One of the best luxuries is a fantastic bathroom. If any hotel, mall, rented room, or suburban home has a surprisingly awesome bathroom that makes you go “ooh!”, somehow the whole place seems fancier. So how about creating a green bathroom – literally – in your own private jungle?
