  • Rawa Island Resort

    Rawa, a Rustic Paradise in Malaysia

    I’ll admit that I’m a bit of a princess when it comes to holidays and accommodation. I just love fancy hotels with room service and gorgeous decor. I’m a five-star kind of girl. When someone uses the word “rustic” in the description of their holiday, I tend to discount...

    The Glasshouse at Chijmes

    The Glasshouse first came to my attention on Instagram with its beautiful feed of three images. The first, a covered area of work in progress… I was curious. The second, a row of three toasts topped with yummy things… definitely interested! The third photo in their feed, back then, was...
  • Totally Cool Szechuan Yakitori and Cocktails at CHIKIN Bar

    If you’re after a groovy vibe, cool ambience, good food and killer cocktails, try heading to CHIKIN Bar on Bukit Pasoh Road. We were recently invited to a tasting there and even though it was only 5.30pm and the place wasn’t quite pumping just yet, it was an excellent...

    Chef’s Table Friday Lunches

    Of the many places I’ve eaten in Singapore, Chef’s Table still remains one of my all-time favourites. Chef Stephan Zoisl and his team are truly amazing and earlier this year, we had the pleasure of talking to him about how it all began. When Chef Stephan invited me to taste their...
  • T2 Tea Chai

    Making Warm, Fragrant Chai Tea Without any Fuss.

    I have always loved the warm spice and sweet comfort of a good chai tea recipe. This has come in so many forms for me, the earliest of which is masala chai, drunk while eating a South Indian meal (with my hands) at Little India’s Komala Vilas. The most distinct...

    Nouri, “Crossroads Cooking” Influenced by the World

    Nouri is a wonderful dining destination that quietly opened its doors on the 17th of June. Quietly, I say because we went a month ago for dinner while they were still in preview mode. They had respectfully asked us not to post anything on social media until they were open....
  • T2 Tea

    Matcha and the Language of Love

    I realise that this will date AND reveal me as a hopeless romantic. However, let it also been known that in my 20+ years of marriage, my expectations of romanticism have been leveled… and far below my teenage fantasies. Still, let’s talk about T2 Tea, their matcha recipe and...
  • Fruitalicious Iced Tea Spritzer (by T2)!

    There is absolutely nothing better on a hot, sweltering day in Singapore than a T2 iced tea named the Fruitalicious Spritzer. I recently discovered how easy this was to make and believe me, it’s going to start featuring at any event I host in future. Tangy, sweet (but without...

    Pro Tips to Get You Started on the T2 Tea Revolution

    Yes, I know, I’ve got the reputation of being a coffee fanatic. That’s easy to see with all the coffee articles I’ve been doing. However, tea has always been a favourite. Perhaps a bit more quietly, but a go-to drink when I want a bit of comfort. It was...
