Now that we have a 2-month old baby, life is VERY different. These days, destinations for our weekend family outings tend to be those that are baby-friendly (read: places that have baby changing rooms). We also tend to head for malls that can satisfy all our needs under one roof — namely dining and grocery [...]
A couple of weeks ago, I was at Upper Bukit Timah.

I’m obsessed with Korean food. In fact, I love it so much I could eat it everyday. It’s a good thing the recent interest in Korean culture has resulted in a mushrooming of Korean restaurants and food stalls in Singapore. Unfortunately, the range is still limited. There’s a lot more to Korean food than bulgogi [...]
