Whenever Flo takes me to a nice restaurant, I always share about the experience with Mum straightaway. She lamented one time about how she's not dined at a Michelin-starred restaurant before even though she has dined at many fancy restaurants. So I promised that come her birthday, I'll take her somewhere nice. Mum's birthday fell … Continue reading Summer Palace, The Regent Hotel
I'm a big fan of David Lebovitz and so far, the recipes that I've tried from his collection have never failed to have me licking the crumbs off my lips, fingers and plate. His beetroot chocolate cake turned out beautifully moist and bomb-diggity. His ginger cookies recipe that I've since adapted and is now one of … Continue reading David Lebovitz Gluten-Free Brownies

Tahini here costs a … Continue reading Pecan Chocolate Chip Tahini Cake Bars.
Before Flo flew off to Australia, we met up with his friend Shou and Shou's girlfriend WL. Shou and Flo used to work together but Shou decided to leave the financial sector last year to start up a tuition centre. It's nice that even after parting ways with regards to work, Shou still keeps in … Continue reading Pim Pam by FOC.

Being in Asia, it's easy to get away with being 'too thin' and my petite frame hid a lot of my inner demons well. It wasn't easy choosing to reach out for professional … Continue reading Hitting X0.
It's March and Flo is in Australia. He's been away a week and at the end of this week, we'll be reunited again in New Zealand - our epic holiday of 2018! I can't wait! Also, more than ever before, I miss Flo. I miss preparing breakfast for him each morning before he runs off … Continue reading Pistachio Rose Shortbread and the day Flo cooked!
