• Andorra Andorra | Ruggedly beautiful or concrete ugliness?

Sandwiched between France to the West and Spain to the East, this mountain kingdom is one of Europe’s coveted vacation and skiing destinations and is well known for pristine […]

  • A New Journey Beckons

    Hello friends! There’s something about June that makes my heart skip an extra beat; it is the month we started The Soup Spoon, a humble hole-in-a-wall at Raffles City with big dreams and aspirations, wanting to transform lives and improve eating habits one bowl at a time. This year, especially, opens up exciting new possibilities […]

  • Perth Perfect: Day 1

    Flying off to the sunniest capital city in the world has been always a welcoming and nostalgic feeling for us. Never mind that a cyclone was heading our way! I seem to have a penchant for attracting cyclones and typhoons everywhere I go. Having spent a significant number of years in Perth in the past, […]

  • Perth Perfect: Day 2

    You can call our first day at Perth a rather eventful one, but the rain was pretty intense come nighttime. (the cyclone has officially reached Perth). We, at least I could hear the lashings of rain and howling winds as we slept in the campervan. Thankfully, the sky cleared up the next morning. For breakfast, we […]

  • Perth Perfect: Day 3

    It was a beautiful sunny morning as we embarked on our third day at Perth. No rain in sight! Phew! A quick healthy breakfast before heading down south this morning consisted of granola with Greek yoghurt, Kelsey plums, strawberries, precose pears, figs and white nectarines and topping it all with a drizzle of wild honey. Really […]

  • Perth Perfect: Day 4

    Day 4 started out pretty well. With the early night rest, kids woke up on the dot just before 6 AM. They seem to have an internal alarm clock that goes off the same time daily regardless of school holidays or weekends. Pretty amazing, I must say. The amenities here in the tourist park are […]

  • Perth Perfect: Day 5

    We were getting the tail end of the cyclone and the weather has turned slightly chilly in the morning. For breakfast, we made my chunky version of shakshuka with chopped tomatoes, French beans, mushrooms, free-range eggs, basil and goat’s cheese. We did not any cumin, and my kids were not absolutely big fans of this […]

  • Perth Perfect: Day 6

    I am no tiger mum, but the kids were given some holiday work to be completed so here they were spending some time doing some Maths problems. Eli recently had been requesting us to give him additions and subtractions so it was fun seeing him using his toes when the sums get more than 10. […]

  • Perth Perfect: Day 7

    We met up with Ann, my bestie from Singapore. She would use to come and help me out on the weekends when we just started the business. We have this special bond and I am really humbled and thankful for her friendship. We may not see each other that often these days due to our […]

  • Perth Perfect: Day 8

    Our flight was at 2 am the next morning, so we actually have a full day in Perth. Squeezing in as much as we could, we ticked off another must-go breakfast place in the city. It was Sayers Sister in Northbridge (236 Lake St) this time. Highly recommended. Being foodies that we are, we met Ann […]

  • What Should Be in Your Kid’s Travel Bag

    I’ve come across fashion magazines and blogs wherein they lay out the contents of a certain celebrity’s purse and describe each item in detail. That being said, this inspired me to do a ‘What’s in Your Bag?’ kind of post – kiddie edition! Children can be fidgety and restless during flights, especially for long-haul ones. […]
