Hello 2017, we kind of knew you’d be showing up..

… although, at least here in Beijing, you could have done a better entrance than this I believe.. Not really the way you want to start a New Year. And unfortunately, this morning is not much better… That said I know it’s temporary and better air and blue skies will be back. Sooner rather than later I […]

Back in Beijing…

… and the sun is shining outside my office. To be honest, it happens more often than I thought it would. And while I’m back in the saddle, albeit slightly dazed and confused due to the lack of sleep from tonight’s flight over from Singapore, hubby & daughter just boarded flight number two out of three.

See you later Singapore.

It’s our last day in Singapore, time has really flown. And since the flight doesn’t leave until late tonight we had a whole day to occupy. What better way than running around Universal Studios in 30 degrees heat for a whole day? 😳Yes we are insane. But it was great fun. We wee supposed to […]

To friends and foes near or far, wherever in the world you are…

… a very Merry Christmas. ❤️ Truth be told I did not wake up in a Christmas mood. The sun outside and the humidity that hit you when you exited the bedroom this morning in order to see if Santa has swung by the balcony during the night didn’t help. He had though. Swung by […]

Palawan beach, the place where my thighs became a darker shade of red.

We spend yesterday by the beach. We started off with the munchkins at a water land, playing pirates.  The whole place was a hit. Even for me and sis who could spend most of our time on a mat under the palm trees and watch how the two of them played away. They only graced […]

Sentosa Cove. Where the yachts lay thick & the pizzas are long.

We went out for dinner yesterday after a day of relaxation and Christmas candy making. The combination of Christmas preparation and pool hanging is simply weird and one I’ll never get used to. The two should be separated and never get mixed up ever again. Next Christmas shall be spent in a cabin in the […]

From Beijing to Singapore with love.

Christmas will be spent under palm trees and in 30 degrees heat this year. Breaks my Christmas heart in many ways but at the same time, that’s where my boy’s are at. 👌🏻 I haven’t seen them since the this summer so I’m looking forward to some serious snuggling. Not so sure they agree though. […]

Black nails, a Hawaiian fairytale & a pimped up Christmas tree

What more could you possibly ask for? Let me start with the Hawaiian fairytale – Moana. Listen, if there is ONE film you should take your kids to this year (or what’s left of it) it’s this one. It’s mesmerisingly beautiful, it’s fun, it’s about a strong girl and friendship. It has all the classic […]

Me, my Kenwood and I

I got a present yesterday. My early Christmas gift.. It’s something I’ve wanted since last Christmas when I was standing kneading a dough by hand as my Kitchen Aid couldn’t muster the heavy dough. I got a Kenwood. 😍Hello puppy and welcome to the family. We’ve been longing for you…. or rather I have! We […]
