  • Lessons from an Accidental Environmentalist

    My green journey started back in 2007. I was a new mom and trying to make healthy changes… but it was more like being on a roller coaster called “trying to be green, and mostly getting it wrong.” Not really a fun ride. However, with every new year, it felt like a fresh start. A […]

  • On being different…

    I cycle my daughter to school. I always have. It’s much easier than dealing with the line-up of cars in the morning, plus it’s fun. Throughout kindergarden, she didn’t even think about it. But things are different now,  she started big girl school… On the first day, I realised that I was the only parent […]

  • Where else is BPA lurking?

    Canned food is often full of artificial flavourings, too much sugar or salt – no surprise here, how else are they meant to make something sit on a shelf for years and still taste good?! But even if you do find a brand that is healthier (organic, low sodium…) it turns out you may still may have […]

  • Brew your Tea Longer!

    I recently came across an interesting character, Susun Weed – she’s a four time best-selling author and has been teaching herbal medicine for longer than I’ve been on the planet! She has a wealth of knowledge and I was recently listening to her talk about the way we brew our herbal teas. We know that […]

  • What I See When I Run

    When I first saw these prints featured on an American blog, I thought – wow, I feel really drawn to these images, they’re almost familiar. Then I realised why – these beautiful portraits are based on nature found right here in Singapore! The work is by Francis Ooi, an amateur photographer whos weekly runs along […]

  • The look of Simplicity

    In the past, I was never drawn to a minimal aesthetic. I found it cold and empty. I wanted to fill my world with things, decorations and colors. But, as I began to simplify and cut back on the excess – my idea of beauty has changed. For me, it began two years ago when […]
