The Sweet Potato Fries Showdown

What’s better than potatoes? Sweet potatoes! I don’t even want to go into why that is better. But seriously, sweet potatoes are packed full of wonderful nutrients like Vitamin A and beta-carotene (a purportedly powerful antioxidant). I never liked sweet potatoes when I was young, but ever since I tried sweet potato FRIES, mash ant other wonderful variations, I’ve done a 360 and fell totally in love with … Continue reading The Sweet Potato Fries Showdown

Video | Wake Up and Smell the Coffee

Last week, I had the pleasure of meeting a skilled (and friendly) barista who has over 10 years of experience in coffee, at the Food&HotelAsia2016 mega trade show. I never really thought about it, but there are actually a bazillion (maybe a slight exaggeration there) factors to consider in roasting quality coffee beans and brewing a cup of fragrant, wonderful tasting coffee – like the duration of … Continue reading Video | Wake Up and Smell the Coffee

Some Yummy Food Places Around Alexandra

About 2 years ago, I worked in the Alexandra area for around 1.5 years. Being someone who loves food with a burning passion, I made sure to explore the area to sniff out the good eats to enjoy during lunch time. Here are some places which I liked around the Alexandra Village / Bukit Merah area (will probably do the Pasir Panjang / Harbourfront side some other time, there are … Continue reading Some Yummy Food Places Around Alexandra

Living Life Upside Down

So, I’ve been somewhat obsessed or okay perhaps interested is a better word, in doing inversions this year. Be it a handstand or a headstand, I have been fairly determined to achieve a state of balance while in an upside down position. I am also quite convinced that doing more of these will help to give me abs. Haha crazy I know, but it just seems … Continue reading Living Life Upside Down

Happy Mid-Autumn Festival!

Happy Mid-Autumn everyone! The actual day is finally here, though I think everyone has probably already been fervently munching on mooncakes since late (or perhaps mid?) August. Since last week there has been an influx of mooncakes arriving at my office from various suppliers, vendors, agencies etc, and I’ve had the pleasure (and guilt) of sampling baked mooncakes from many fine hotel restaurants including those at … Continue reading Happy Mid-Autumn Festival!

Food, Fitness and Travel

I love food. I really do. And if you’ve been following my posts, you’d probably have realised that by now as well. But how does one eat all this glorious food without… well, expanding? That’s a challenge I constantly struggle with. As a young girl, I really disliked exercising. At 15 years old, I weighed a fairly hefty 57kg and ran 2.4km in a pathetic … Continue reading Food, Fitness and Travel
