eM by the River

When Jose and Adrienne last visited, we went to eM, located along the Singapore River and had hi-tea. Outdoorsy, easy, casual with mix and match sofa and seats, this is the place to chill and unwind.

My Japanese Love Affair: Hanayoshi, Singapore

Assam Laksa is one of the dishes that can make my … Continue reading

P.S. Cafe: The Ginger Pudding

“Monday Blues”, usually people say it because it’s the start of the week again either at work or school.  Well I am not working today but it’s bluer than blue because it’s raining.  Yes it’s a nice weather to sleep in but I actually planned to be productive today.
