  • 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 toasts

    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...

  • 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,...

    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...
