This week has been great because Friday was a holiday in Singapore! Everyone should work 4 days and rest 3 days, isn’t that more fair? I love long weekends!
This week, we revisited another restaurant that we haven’t been to in a while, went to a new cafe that was great, baked twice (and both turned out well!), brought my grandma out for dinner at her favourite place, my good friend had an ‘OMG’ burger, we received something funny in the mail and my mother was in her 2nd week of holiday in Spain & Portugal … whew, and that concludes our week!
Please enjoy these snaps and let me know what you did this week!
I saw this in the newspapers on Sunday – Laduree’s maracons did not even come close to the top few. But it is one of the most costly.
GoCarTours – my mum in Portugal
My dinner on Tuesday – before gym. Sashimi, edamame beans and avocado. Please don’t ask me what we had after gym.
KW’s dinner one night – curry rice. This looks really gross but it tastes like heaven.
Carbonara pasta at Jewel Cafe – my sister’s dish
The OMG burger from Jewel Cafe – our good friend’s dish – it has bacon, fried egg and luncheon meat. I can die for this.
Casa Verde – restaurant at Singapore Botanic Gardens – one of our lunches this week.
Laksa – spicy noodle soup
One of my mum’s great dinner dishes in Portugal this week
This super funny note came in the mail — someone in my condo apartment wants to make friends here in Singapore.
One of my favourite posts this week.
Starting on my new book this week, at a sushi restaurant – both reviews coming soon!

Fish soup with egg – what I had after body combat class on Wednesday
I went for a hair spa session at J’s salon – this is their newly renovated salon.
My mum sat this, this week.
KW’s dinner one night – mee goreng (It is made with thin yellow noodles fried in cooking oil with garlic, onion or shallots, fried prawn, chicken, or beef, sliced meatballs, chili, Chinese cabbage, cabbages, tomatoes and egg)
My dad was feeling nostalgic and he looked through old photos of my sister and I.
We went to Founders Bak Kut Teh at Rangoon Road – not as tasty as we thought.
Bak Kut Teh consists of meaty pork ribs simmered in a complex broth of herbs and spices.

After my sister and her friend tried out Jewel Cafe, we came for coffee one evening too.
