Pasarbella Farmer’s Market

Posted on Jun 21, 2014 in Bing, Family, Singapore

I took my family to check out Pasarbella on a weekend. My father was surprised that a nook like this existed in Singapore. While my Mom got excited over the wide array of western style food. And my little nephew sat quietly in my arms and swayed gently along with me to the music from the live band. An indulgent lunch of wine, seafood paella, roast pork and pasta. Reminiscent of the weekend markets in New Zealand and South Africa. It was a great afternoon. #iphonephotos #instagram #bloggingontheipad...

Kranji Countryside

Posted on May 04, 2014 in Bing, Family, Nature, Singapore

My sister-in-law dragged us out of our usual city style weekend into the “countryside”. My family spent a lovely morning having an organic healthy brunch (yeap, no champagne), where dessert was homemade banana bread and gula melaka pudding. The kids loved it. And I had fun watching my dear nephew approach the animals. Fabulous family time. Brunch at Bollywood Veggies. Feeding rabbits at Farmart Centre. Fresh veggies galore at Kok Fah Farm Weekend Market.

Family Time in Hong Kong

Posted on Mar 27, 2014 in Bing, Family, Travel

I took my parents on a daughter-parents bonding holiday to Hong Kong. And we had the best time ever. We did heaps, ate till we felt like we would burst and chatted till late every day. I am grateful for the time we spent together. #love View of Hong Kong Island from Avenue of the Stars 餐蛋面 Luncheon meat and egg soup noodles at 大浪湾村 Big Waves Village Congee from 海皇粥店 at Yaumatei.

Two Gals Conquer Ho Chi Minh

Posted on Mar 06, 2012 in Bing, Family, Travel

It’s my Mom’s birthday and I took her on a getaway to have some girly time together. It’s been years since we’ve done this and I was psyched for a very fun and tiring time ahead. You see, my Mom is the real Energizer bunny. I’m just the imitation. She has a tremendous amount of energy. I groan when I think about keeping up with her. So I’ve finally managed to convince Mom to put on a face mask, put down her iPhone, stow away her Facebook and email and goodness knows what else she does on her laptop. And now that she’s finally fast asleep, I can think of the day we’ve just had. My agenda in Ho Chi Minh was clear – pho and massages. Rest, eat and relax. Fortunately, Mom agreed to my plan. Onboard on...

Happy Birthday, Daddy

Posted on Jan 16, 2012 in Bing, Family

Today is my father’s birthday. Yet another birthday that I cannot celebrate with him. Sigh, the woes of an expat wife, but that’s another story. Today I want to write about my father. He wasn’t an easy man to grow up with. My father took on stressful jobs and was a hard, bitter and angry person. Although there was never a doubt that I was the apple of his eye, my father never spared the rod and some of the worst beatings of my life were by him. I have to admit that I had grown up not knowing if he really loved me. But as soon as I grew up, it seems that my father did too. Today, he’s relaxed, funny, sincere, generous and forgiving. He takes care of all my administrative and logistics stuff in Singapore when...
