  • Sushi Kanesaka

    Sushi Kanesaka at Tokyo Ginza

    THIS. The pièce de résistance of my entire trip – two Michelin starred Sushi Kanesaka. I had wanted to try the Singapore outpost (Shinji at St Regis) for ages but the hefty price tag always put me off. However, now that I was in Japan, there was nothing that was...
  • Missing the Tastes of Singapore in London: C & R Café

    Many years ago, whilst living in London, footloose and fancy free without kids (we call those times BC, i.e. “Before Children”), the Man and I discovered this little hidden gem, surreptitiously tucked away in a wee, cobbled lane in Soho – strictly two persons walking abreast. Needless to say,...
  • FATCAT Ice Cream Bar Butter Beer

    FATCAT Ice Cream Bar, Fab Fun for the Family

    “Butter Beer” was all my Darling Husband (DH) needed say to convince me to haul the kids over to FATCAT in Bedok and check out this ice-cream bar. I was  inspired to write a rave review for FATCAT Ice Cream Bar for the numerous reasons which I will elaborate on shortly. Although,...
  • Thrive Cafe

    Cafes in Singapore Worth Mentioning – June 2017

    Three more fantastic spots for coffee that I have found recently – Free the Robot, Punch and Thrive. There are so many fantastic cafes in Singapore now that it’s hard to keep up! Anyone care to help me? I hope to design a printable map with my faves mapped out...
  • Ciao for Now NYC

    Ciao for Now! A farewell NYC Brunch

    Farewell to New York City (NYC)! My last article about my all-too-brief trip to NYC will be on food…specifically breakfast! I love breakfasts and brunches out. So our farewell to NYC brunch was something I had to write about. I’m not one of those “ladies who lunch”. I’m more of a...
  • Brooklyn Bridge

    Brooklyn Wanders

    Whenever I think of Brooklyn, I think of Kate Spade, you know “Cobble Hill’, “Cedar St”, “Cameron St” … or maybe, it’s because I’m slightly obsessed with handbags (and shoes). However, whilst I’ve heard of these places by living my life vicariously through handbags – interesting idea – I’ve...

    DDS in NYC – A Trip Out to Woodbury Common

    What do you do on your first day in New York City (NYC)? Shop of course! Okay, really we had an excuse. We had flown into NYC on Sunday during the day and had to stay awake until bedtime so we spent the rest of the day walking and walking and walking....
  • Bees Knees Cafe

    Top Three Coffee Spots of the Week (Round 5)

    Finally! I’ve gotten around to my Top Three Coffee Spots of the Week! Obviously, it’s not “of the week” anymore seeing as December was our last post on this. The only fix to this problem would be for me to go forth and drink more coffee! Anyone want to...
  • NYC Empire State

    DDS Goes to New York City (NYC)!

    Last year Misses 12 and 10 (then 11 and 9) went on a school ski trip to Courmayeur, Italy. It was an 8-day trip so they were away from home for eight days, EIGHT days, that’s VIII days. BOTH of them together. This means NO KIDS for EIGHT whole days....
