It’s been one of those weeks – where I’ve been staring down the clock at work.
Just wanting to be somewhere else.
On vacation? Maybe? Sunning myself by the pool in some beautiful far away land? Ok – yes, definitely.
I could stay in any one of
these beautiful hotels. My favorite being this ridiculously escapist Moroccan spot or this hotel ON A CLIFF in Portugal.
But first I need a new swimsuit. Ooh how about

Blackberry, Honey, and Yogurt Ice Pops
After a wonderful gift from Hattie (AKA popsicle molds) i was able to jump on the summer recipe bandwagon of icy treats. These
Blackberry, Honey and Yogurt Ice Pops/AKA my first popsicle experiment totally lived up to my expectations. There is tang from the yogurt and lime and richness from the pureed blackberry. My version used sugar syrup made with raw sugar and vanilla extract!
Cafe Fest coming up in Singapore that I’m super excited about. Speaking of cafes, despite new ones opening up all the time (I’m referring to The Tastemaker), I still stick by my old favorites, Artisan Boulangerie Co. (for their great service, coffee and quiches) and Tiong Bahru Bakery (for their pitch perfect Almond Chocolate Croissant).
Despite not delivering any food posts this week – I’ve been preparing food at home non-stop. My new favorite lunch are these
Peanut-Sesame Slaw with Soba Noodles (I added baked tofu), this parmesan vinagrette is great with romaine and I baked Lacy Coconut-Topped Brownies for a sweet treat!
World Cup! World Cup! World Cup! It started y’all.
There are a number of different ads out there but this one by Beats wins – simply because of the sheer number of celebrities in it. See if you can
spot all of them.

Planning to go to Kota Kinabalu (KK) for a holiday? Here are a few tips:
You need to
book wayyy in advance if you want to climb Mount Kinabalu. I did not and had to enjoy the moutain from afar… Best place for food in Kota Kinabalu is
Fatt Kee Restaurant. Order the Assam Fish Curry and Sabah Chai (veg). Visit the
Poring Hot Springs (2 hour drive from KK) and stay/eat at Round Inn where the service and food are awesome.
