    Thank you, Mr Lee Kuan Yew

    Thank you, Mr Lee Kuan Yew for everything you have done for us. You will be dearly missed by many of us. You gave us a place to call home. You saw the importance of education and emphasized it so as to make each and every Singaporean ready for their future.  We now have a world-class education system. Rest in Peace Sir, you will always be remembered. 29 March 2015 –  The State Funeral Procession I couldn’t make it to the Parliament House to pay a respect to Mr Lee Kuan Yew. But, I was lucky enough to be able to attend The State Funeral Procession that was held on Sunday. This was the…

    Indonesian-Style Avocado Milkshake

    I love avocado. Avocado helps to lower bad helps lower bad cholesterol, and is also high in vitamin B which fights off diseases and good for your skin. To me, Indonesian Avocado Milkshake is like my childhood favorite drink. My mum was born in Indonesia as a Chinese- Indonesian. She was later married to my dad, who is a Singaporean and eventually moved to Singapore.  Often when I travel to Indonesia to visit my relatives, the first thing I would order in any restaurant or eatery is Avocado Milkshake. It’s thick, creamy and full of goodness.

There were 8 different flavors of Xiao Long Bao, range from the original, Cheese to even Black Truffles and Foie Gras!  Honestly, after trying…

    Wholemeal Blueberry Loaf Cake

    I love Blueberry Loaf Cake but I always find that store-bought ones have too little blueberry and they don’t taste that berrylicious. I am trying to be more health conscious recently, and I think that a good breakfast must have a good balance diet. Which means, less fats and more wholemeal (or whole wheat) products. I have created this recipe to be, yummy enough but yet less fat for my morning kick start. If you don’t know why go for wholemeal, here are some of the reasons why you should, Lower the risk of getting diabetes type 2 High in fiber Against heart disease Makes you less hungry  So you would…

    Japan 2014/2015 Part 1 – Kinosaki

    Hey guys! So it was coming an end of 2014 and my brother and I decided that we should be in Japan during that period. It was a wonderful experience at Osaka because the last time I went there was almost 10 years back! The whole journey was about 10 hours (including transfer time) to finally reach Kansai International Airport and the first we did was to get our rented car ready because we were going to Kinosaki, a small town 2 hours away from Osaka. LOL! Trying to act cute inside the car. It took us about an hour to get our car ready and by then we were all very hungry, so…

    Gardens by the Bay – Flower Dome

    9 March 2015 My friends and I have some time to spend so we decided to make a trip to Gardens by the Bay to have potluck and see the attractions there. To be honest, the weather was so hot that I actually wanted to call it off but luckily I did not because it was a wonderful experience. I made fried rice and Blueberry Loaf cake while my friends made some sandwiches and fried nuggets.  We managed to find a shelter to shade us! I was so lazy to style that day so I dressed casually to overcome the hot weather.  Initially, we wanted to go both Flower Dome and…

    How many have stayed by you?

    People around you changes from time to time. Those who really stayed by with you all along, how many are there? You may ask, should I not make any effort on relationships anymore? Should I not communicate with them? I have never mastered the arts of communication (and don’t think I will ever) . You know, it’s not easy to communicate well with others. I mean by communicating well, is to feel connected with each other in a relationship, knowing each other’s needs and being able to relate it back. To me, I always think communication is like peanut butter and jelly, if you can relate well with each other, you…
