REVIEW: Dim Dim Sum #hongkongdiaries

Last week, I was lucky enough to make a quick trip to Hong kong with 4 of my closest friends. I last visited Hong kong in 2013 and oh my, I was taken back with how much Hong Kong has changed. So, in these 5 days- I was able to try a whole range of…

REVIEW: Garibaldi

There are only a few things in life that make me happy…homemade food and some great company to share it with. Garibaldi, an Italian restaurant is quietly tucked away in the corner of Purvis street. Easy to miss it if you drive fast or you aren’t as eagle eyed as you hoped you’d be. I’ve…

Ma

In her late forties was she, a little plump, a little sweet a funny woman who was beautiful and chaotic, but she won’t let you forget her so easily, loud and bold, she didn’t let anyone talk to her in any sort of manner, her sass would silence you, quick child, stand up straight- here…

The stork

It stood in the corner alone, Look away child, that shadow makes a baleful figure, the ceiling bulb flickered constantly, ugly flies slowly made a home out of it, yellow stained walls with plenty of cracks, one more touch, I warn you, it will come falling down. She appeared out of nowhere, turning our worst…

Still searching

His mind produced 500 thoughts every second, his focus dwindling away, soon to disappear completely stop he would repeat to himself, he dragged himself to work everyday, mindlessly staring at the clock, counting down hours for the day to be over, confined by his unfortunate reality, irritation trapped him, his arrogance silenced by his boss….

This is how we roll: vegetable maki sushi!

Japanese food is one of my favorite cuisines in the world. I get sushi cravings ALL the time! Unfortunately, sushi is quite expensive especially when you eat it as much as I do. After binge watching a countless number of videos on how to make sushi, I decided to give it a try! After an…

Simple Artichoke Dip

One thing that I can’t ever seem to muster the courage to say no to will always be ┬ámy mom’s artichoke dip. It wasn’t until yesterday when my mom forced me to learn how to make this dip, because she simply couldn’t deal with me constantly eating what was prepared for the guests. What to…

Unnerved

unnerved always a little frightened, I saw the way she was treated my daughter, unconditional love was all she spread, too good for the world, I tell you but my daughters big heart held a bigger secret, his big hands made cuts on her face bruises stained on her skin, how dare you do that…

OPINION: Artbox @ Singapore 2017

Artbox is a popular, fun filled flea market from Bangkok, Thailand which recently made its way down to Singapore for the last 2 weekends. Overall, the experience was interesting! It was a fun way to spend a saturday night with a couple of friends. However, the ambience may not be for everyone-if you love crowds,…

It’s time for some avo-cardio..!

My go to breakfast has always been simple yet delicious. Avocado and toast. This is a great way for me to start my morning and helps keep me energized for the rest of the day. Avocados are incredibly nutritious and eating these will seriously benefit you, but of course, anything eaten in excess can be…

17 things I’ve learnt in 17 years

What my experiences in high school have taught me: 1) Be confident. Make mistakes but learn from them. Be hungry for experiences, don’t be afraid to make a fool out of yourself once in a while. Everyone has been or is in the same boat as you. Fake it till you make it. 2) Friends…

The City

Intrepid and Charismatic, her bold nature was devoured by many, renowned for her hospitality, she casted a spell on lonely wanderers, embracing them tightly. Time didn’t exist in her dictionary, yellow rickshaws had their own rhythm, bouncing softly on jagged floors, honking had become a terrible habit but the city was stoic without it. She…
