What weekends are for

Sleeping in, leisurely evening jogs, yoga, manis, pedis, movie nights and experimenting in the kitchen. Random photo postings yet again (because I'm a lousy blogger).

Upon discovering the bf's mom's rum butter in the fridge, I got really excited. You can't not bake something when you're faced with tradition that came all the way from Cumberland - right?

Rum & raisin anyone?

Turns out, rum butter goes perfectly well with raisin scones

Afternoon tea at Club 55

Sometimes you chance upon the most unexpected events just by leaving the house. Like these F1 tickets. Thanks JK and Helen!

Because work is now in a slightly more remote location (there's no MRT in the area), I'm making it a habit to bring my own breakfast. Hence the homemade pepita granola, which just wouldn't be the same without hand-stirred pumpkin butter and shaved apple. Smells like fall in a bowl

Occasionally, we like to take a break from baking and let others do the job. Here's an Empress Dowager from The Patissier, a delicate strawberry mousse enveloping layers of sponge cake atop a crispy chocolate pastry crust

Mid-Autumn festival was a long forgotten tradition since we moved to the States. Now that we're back, there's no reason to skip these champagne truffle mooncakes from Raffles Hotel, which are just to die for

Wish I could share more from the weekday events such as the bf's birthday celebration or Model's night at Oosh, but it's late and I have an early day tomorrow.

While we don't go out as much in Singapore, I'm really glad it's starting to feel a lot more like home.

Hey Danielle,
Breakfast is looking pretty YUM. Hmm...... looks like icecream, smells like cinnamon.

Hello! You've been tagged on my blog!

Sorry I couldn't meet up in Singapore a few weeks back! We didn't have much time to spare.... I'll be coming down again next week but only for a day for training.... :(
