    Top Three Coffee Spots of the Week (Round 4)

    Our recent move to the west of Singapore was met with a bit of dismay from my east coast coffee buddies. I’ll have to admit a bit of trepidation on my part because I had so many firm favourites in the east. Now, having settled in the west, I am finding great little...
  • Top Three Coffee Spots of the Week (Round 3)

    So many cafés, so little time! I love when I find a new place and these three, I have never been to before. I went to one for a meeting, the next was to catch up with a friend and the last was a quick escape from a house full of...

  • Top Three Coffee Spots of the Week (Round 2)

    Please don’t get the wrong impression. I don’t go to a different café every day! Some weeks, it may be two a day… But then some weeks, I have a quiet schedule and only make it to one. Added to this is the fact that I’m exploring various home brewing...
  • About Steaming Onsens and Baring it all at 42

    Cafe culture in Singapore is thriving and I for one am rejoicing. Not only do I love the dark elixir, but I take great joy in finding a spot to sit, think, drink coffee and maybe indulge in a sweet treat (or three ;)). I find them on Instagram,...
  • The Hangar, my Favourite Café on Arab Street

    The Hangar on Arab Street was suggested by a friend and frequent coffee buddy after she chanced upon it while buying ribbons (just across the street at Kin Soon Pte Ltd). She, whom I shall call the Gorgeous S, has since moved to the UK and I miss our meet ups...
  • A Helping Hand – the Cookbook in English & Tagalog

    As an avid recipe and cookbook collector, I was intrigued when Frog Michaels approached me at the school café with her hot-off-the-press cookbook, A Helping Hand: Delicious Recipes in English & Tagalog. I had briefly met Frog at an event so when I read the name on the cover, I...
  • Bench at Dapper Coffee

    Dapper Coffee

    It was over a year and a half ago and perhaps it was all the wood panelling and old lanterns but I’m pretty sure that crusty old sailors never got coffee this good! One could turn their nose up at the hodge podge of bits and pieces. I have...
