We were picked up at the airport and driven in air-conditioned comfort to the hotel. In the minivan we were given cold jasmine scented towels and reusable aluminium bottles of iced water. We were already feeling pampered. The driver’s voice … Continue reading
I don’t feel old, but I feel old in comparison to those under 30 especially. Grateful to learn from them as they introduce me to a new world. New terms and new ways of looking at the world. A kind … Continue reading
Tasmania has some of the most beautiful beaches I’ve ever seen.
B pointed out that the orchids at the Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands are real and if they are replaced regularly must be super expensive. Me and my cousin D love coming to TWG. The outlet here looks nice but … Continue reading
Love the blue. I’m a water sign after all.
Haven’t been to the Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands for a while and was drawn to this window display in particular. New sights are always refreshing. And I love the bubblegum shade of pink.
It was about a 10 minute walk from our beautiful hotel chalet to the beach. I’m so glad we didn’t miss this as I found it so utterly refreshing. The feel of the soft sand and the reviving sounds of … Continue reading
Decided to continue the list I started more than a decade ago. Since then probably some things on my list are no more, because Singapore is constantly morphing. But we are now blessed with Jewel and her majestic fountain. It … Continue reading
I love gazing at lovely shades. Some combinations are just more pleasing and harmonious like the pastels at the revamped MOS burger outlets. I’m partial to certain shades of pink, blue and white.
The Greens of Leura is one of the most fairytale like places we’ve stayed with a canopy bed and the most beautiful lounge area with the best teas and biscuits. There was also Sherry and it was so cosy you … Continue reading
I love that we now have the Art Science Museum at Marina Bay Sands. It may be commercialized but I’ve enjoyed every exhibit I’ve visited here. They have changed my perspective and allowed me to view the world in a … Continue reading
Visited New Zealand for the first time recently and felt so overwhelmed by her beauty that I just didn’t know how to start blogging about the trip. Been planning to visit this paradise I’ve heard so much about for more … Continue reading
Just had to relive this touching Oscar moment. I’m a huge fan of Adrien Brody and I wish all speeches could be this genuine and witty as well. Watching it again I couldn’t help but feel touched. Watched The Pianist … Continue reading
We like coming to Lower Pierce. It’s nice and peaceful. B was laughing at me because I was scared of the monkeys. He’s more of an animal person than I am and he is quite fond of them. I find … Continue reading
I have no sense of direction, so I’m so thankful for google maps. However when I got off Esplanade MRT at Exit F, I breathed a sigh of relief. Raffles Hotel which is the first landmark was right before me … Continue reading
Our sunsets don’t last for very long, but when I pay attention, I’m always thrilled. Watch out for them at about 7.10 pm. I also appreciate the moments as the sun makes her descent on the horizon, and this glorious … Continue reading
I think 13 year old Elle and 17 year old Dakato Fanning are stunning in the W Magazine photo shoot. I love that they are grounded and both are brilliant actresses mature beyond their ages. It was interesting as these … Continue reading
In Singapore, it’s great that there is free entertainment, like the light & water show at Marina Bay Sands. Basically it’s a laser and fountain show set to music, like the one that we watched a year ago at Sentosa. … Continue reading
I was very impressed by how beautiful the Marina Bay Sands Hotel structure looked, all lit up and lined with the palm trees at the bottom.
Shangri-la Hotel’s Rose Veranda has become our default high tea place as the staff always make us feel at home. The food may not be the highest quality, but it has a down to earth cosy vibe which we really … Continue reading
