We've been in our new home just over a month now and have more or less settled into the ebbs and flows of daily life. Some things are a little different, returning back to the East side. We're now further away from the main food/shopping area so it means more walking, which isn't too much … Continue reading Nala.
Florian and Mum were blessed to have their birthdays just before the Circuit Breaker (CB) measures were put in place so we managed to enjoy a celebration dining out. Fingers and toes crossed all the measured will have loosened by the time my birthday comes around, and perhaps we'll all be able to dine out … Continue reading A CB Birthday.
It took a 'circuit breaker' to get the hubs into the kitchen. Not complaining! He wanted to bake German cheesecake to satisfy his cravings for them. We had some quark that he had brought back from Germany when he went to visit his grandfather. They needed to be used so last week, he took the … Continue reading Käsekuchen and Sourdough.
24 Feb 2020, Mum turned another year wiser. Months ago, I booked to have her birthday lunch at Summer Pavilion, Ritz-Carlton Millenia since Florian and I had such an enjoyable meal there a couple of years ago for his birthday. It was initially to be a mother-daughter affair, but a celebration isn't a celebration unless … Continue reading Summer Pavilion, Ritz-Carlton Millenia. Revisit.
We celebrated Florian's birthday about a week earlier since he was going to be away on the day itself. Obviously, I know how much of a travesty it is in German custom to celebrate one's birthday before the actual day but we had things on the weekend after. Moreover, I reasoned that being in Singapore, … Continue reading béni, Mandarin Gallery.

Our last few hours of 2019 were spent around Les's dining table where … Continue reading Plunging into 2020.
Last weekend, we gathered around the table yet again for another cook-in dinner with friends. Last month, we had Dad's braised pork belly and Mum's chap chye. This time, we settled on Beef Stew and Focaccia. Since there was going to be 10 of us, Dad and I decided to split the work and each … Continue reading Recipe: Beef Stew
Seeking the Rainbow has been taking up most of my time of late, but I realise how important as well it is to make time for family. The second half of last week was well spent, and Florian and I bid goodbye to the weekend spoiling ourselves. In fact, just being with family has spoilt … Continue reading Spoiling Ourselves.
I was listening to Maroon 5's latest single 'Memories' and some of the verses made me think of our little ones. There's a time that I remember, when I did not know no pain When I believed in forever, and everything would stay the same Now my heart feel like December when somebody say your … Continue reading Memories Bring Back You.
29 September 2019, Florian and I celebrated our first anniversary. It's been a whirlwind of a year as many of you may know. We had a whole lot of highs, and a huge hit-the-ground low. Still, we're standing together, stronger than ever and looking forward to another year ahead. I expected this anniversary to have … Continue reading We Are One.
