Freshly Baked by Le Bijoux


If I had to choose between rice or bread, it’s definitely rice. Yes, I’m a rice person. I get withdrawal symptoms from going without rice for more than two consecutive days! Yet, after an unplanned visit to Freshly Baked, I found myself thinking of nothing but bread. Grabbing a late lunch, I’d expected nothing extraordinary…

Smok'inn Frogz Kitchen


Of late, The Neanderthal’s been grumbling that our Friday/Saturday evenings have been spent at uncool venues like Bukit Merah Central FairPrice supermarket. Yes, dear, I’ve realized my folly!

我们的星期六夜晚…… [Our Saturday evening……]


After visiting Jaime La Nourriture’s lovely blog, I’m now very inspired to blog in Chinese too! Problem is, I haven’t written in Chinese for more than 10 years. It’ll be good practice to brush up on my very rusty Chinese, heh! Ok, here goes…… 星期六了,我和老公都没特别节目。我又不想煮晚饭,于是我们便到惹兰红山中心吃晚餐和逛超市。 老公:哎,我们真uncool! 星期六晚上没去cheong,却跑来这种只有uncle/auntie来的地方! 我:有什么办法?我们以“升级”做uncle/auntie了! Translated: It’s Saturday. Hubby and I had no…
