  • Weekend Love + Finding Happiness in The Little Things

    Hiya! I’m in a good mood! I’m really looking forward to this weekend. I’m teaching a Green Living workshop early Saturday morning and I get such a rush as I prepare, gathering my ingredients and recipes to demonstrate. It’s funny too, because I never saw myself teaching others. Looking back, it wasn’t until I really began […]

  • Five Green Paper Printables

    I’m loving this digital age of PDF printables. You buy them, download them, then they’re yours to keep and use over and over again! A brilliant option for party decorations and invitations, and unlike store bought party packs, you don’t end up with a bunch of extra waste – 10 extra invitations and party hats that you never […]

  • Recipe – It’s The Journey Sandwich

    There’s something about a bicycle that makes me feel like a kid… that time of life where the simplest activity, something that we adults find mundane, can feel like an adventure. For me this happened when I rode out to pick up a loaf of bread. Unlike being in a car, when you’re cycling you’re not closed […]

  • Live your dream! Inspirational documentaries.

    Three days ago I stumbled upon a series of short documentaries, made by a film-maker who is also a food-lover. She tells the story of ordinary people who have chosen to follow their dreams, making a living doing what they love – and for each one, it’s making a food product. There’s a cheese maker, a […]

  • Singapore National Day 2012

    Hi! How did you spend Singapore’s Birthday? We headed out to the new Gardens at The Bay…have you been there yet? It’s such a nice day out. The Cloud Forest greenhouse is so beautiful and actually a bit cold! (bring a wrap for the kids!) Here are some pictures from the day. Sorry about the quality, I took them […]

  • Ikea Hacking at home! Join the Mini Maker Faire!

    We all have that one piece of furniture that no longer seems to fit in. You bought it at a time when you had a need, and sometimes those needs change. You may be tempted to walk it down to the curbside for the karang guni man, and in the name of decluttering and simplifying our lives, this might […]

  • Growing Herbs for Beginners

    I kill herbs. There I said it! I try to grow them, but somehow they always seem to wilt and die on me. I don’t want to kill them, I want to eat them! They make food taste great! That’s why I started this beginner’s guide to growing herbs, if only to teach myself! My […]

  • Muji Love

    My love for Muji runs deep. I honestly like to be in the store and pretend it’s my house…I’m not even joking. What I love is that they incorporate eco-friendly pieces that have an effortless and simple aesthetic. It’s not about shouting out the green message, it’s simply thoughtful and considerate design…and that’s what Muji does brilliantly. […]
