You can take the girl out of Indonesia (I gave up my citizenship for Singapore's years ago), but you can't take the love of Indonesian food out of me. Whenever I go back to my birth country, which is not often enough these days, I am always reminded how much I miss Indonesian food.
Happy new year, all! I hope you all had a wonderful time over the holiday! V and I just got back Friday night from Lampung and Jakarta, where we spent Christmas and New Year respectively with family, so I'm sorry this is overdue, but better late than never, right? One of the goals I set… Continue reading My Best of 2019
Another recipe we tried over the weekend and really liked is this vegan spicy Thai peanut noodles! Our version turned out quite light and we'd probably use more ingredients to intensify the flavours more when we make this again, but the combination of flavours is interesting and delicious! Would you try it too?
Click here to read Part 1! We waited until Monday to drive to Lembang to avoid the weekend tourism rush. If you're not familiar with Bandung and Lembang, it's a good idea to rent a car with a driver for the whole day as it's relatively cheap and saves you the hassle of getting lost… Continue reading Bandung in 4 Days, Part 2
Ever since I read The China Study at a friend's recommendation years ago, I've been thinking about switching to a vegetarian/vegan diet, but found it quite challenging. Personally, I'm so used to having meat in most of my meals that it's a habit more than a conscious choice, and socially South East Asians in general… Continue reading Vegan Pad Thai
Another interesting fashion find: my first paisley dress! I had a blue paisley top some time in the past and loved it, but paisley is not something you see a lot where I live, for some reason, so when I saw this dress in Esprit, I thought it was one-of-a-kind and bought it without much… Continue reading Weekend Outfit – Paisley Dress
I don't know what got into me when I decided to purchase this linen dress from Grana. I must have thought, let's try something new, since I did not have anything orange or close in my closet. This turned out well though, because I quite like how the colour brightens my skintone and my day.… Continue reading Weekend Outfit – Tangerine
If you're not Indonesian, chances are Bandung is not in your list of places to visit. That's the thing about Indonesia, there are many beautiful places but very few people know about them. Bandung is a mountain town about 2 hours' drive west of Jakarta. It is also the third biggest city in Indonesia. There… Continue reading Bandung in 4 Days, Part 1
I've featured this batik dress before, but heck, not all of us have too many clothes not to repeat our outfits ever. I wore it with my Sezane circle bag and Everlane black kitten heels to attend the baptism ceremony of my colleague's baby daughter Gwenny and thought they made a lovely, semi-formal combination. Photos… Continue reading Weekend Outfit – Batik Dress, Circle Bag, Black Kitten Heels
This is going to be a long, but hopefully informative entry based on my 2-week trip to London (my first time!) in October last year, so please get comfortable. Flight: We flew from Singapore to London on Norwegian Air. The direct flight took almost 14 hours and I assure you, we felt every hour. For… Continue reading London for First-Timers
