This is where Florian took me for our second anniversary dinner! ODETTE! He asked me a couple months back to name the first restaurant that came to mind, that I'd love to try. 'Odette', I replied in a heartbeat. And then I let go of that conversation. Fast forward and there we were, walking across … Continue reading Odette, National Gallery.
Florian and I just celebrated our second anniversary! It's amazing how much has happened in the time we have been married - good things, bad things, and all the in-betweens. This also means that we've been married for about half the time we've been together as a couple. I'm waiting for the day when we … Continue reading We Are Two!.
As has become our monthly 'thang', Les and I met for lunch at Alma by Juan Amador, Goodwood Park Hotel. Alma holds one-michelins star and reviews online were extremely favourable. In fact, Mum happened to have lunch there just the week before with a girlfriend of hers and thoroughly enjoyed it. There is an affordable … Continue reading Lunch: Alma by Juan Amador.
Another recent brunch place we went to recently was Cheek Bistro. They only serve their brunch menu on weekends. Florian and I had visited when they were still Cheek by Jowl for dinner and thoroughly enjoyed every bite we had there. It has since been transformed into a more casual eatery but with the same … Continue reading Brunching: Cheek Bistro.
Florian and I have been visiting a few brunch places some weekends together. I've been enjoying the time we have together talking over our meal.

I believe it's partly genetic owing to her coming from a family of strays. Most likely, they sleep a lot in the day when it's hot … Continue reading The Nala Life.
24 August 2020 - Officially a year older. Florian had asked me earlier on what I'd like to do on my birthday.

We often have our most … Continue reading Loved. – Culina Bistro @ Dempsey. & Bakalaki, Tiong Bahru.
23 August 2020. This was the day we remembered our babies. Initially, the plan was to spend our day with Lesley and Zen, but I asked if we could have it brought forward by a day because suddenly, the thought of having fun with them on a day when Florian and I may want to … Continue reading Blessed – Summer Palace, The Regent Hotel. Revisited.
22 August 2020 - two days before my actual birthday, Les and Zen planned a whole day out together, eating mostly. Zen ordered a Grab car to take us to our first venue so that the surprise for me would be kept under wraps. They'd warned us it was going to be a full day … Continue reading Spoilt. – Yi by Jeremy Leung, Raffles Hotel & Kki Sweets.
Les and I have been having our monthly dates and this month being my birthday month, she planned a surprise for me by choosing not to reveal where we'd be dining at. The day before, she sent me the postal code to the restaurant and I obediently decided not to look it up. Turns out, … Continue reading Nouri, Amoy Street.
