Tokyo and Kyoto Leg

We flew from Seoul (Incheon) to Tokyo (Narita), Terminal 1 on a Monday arriving around 1pm. The flight was only 2.5 hours. We cleared immigration really fast. I got a foreigner immigration officer and she sort of mumbled a "welcome". Same as Seoul, my 2 index fingers were scanned and a photo taken.  Tokyo was even hotter than Seoul. At the airport, I saw a group of students stripping off their clothes in the open and changing to shorts and tees. The toilet was just a few steps away... The first thing my daughter did was to get our esim to work. Unfortunately it took a while to get connec ..read more

Last month, my daughter took hubs and I for a holiday to Korea and Japan. She wanted to celebrate her birthday while on a holiday. She had gone to Japan last year with her friends and loved it so much she wanted a return visit. She added Korea to make it a long holiday. A total of 12 days with the last day spent travelling back to Singapore. 12 days! No we didn't kill one another but... Anyway, my daughter did everything - she booked the flights, hotels, transport, esim, came up with the itinerary and while we were in Korea and Japan, she was our chief navigator. All hubs and I did was tag al ..read more

Hello, Slowly, I found myself disappearing from my blog. Hardly anyone reads my blog nowadays so there was no motivation or urgency to write any new posts. But I guess habits are hard to break so here I am tapping out a new post.  End of last year I did 1 thing that the normal me would never do. I felt myself suffocating and needed a huge distraction so desperately that I signed up for a leather bag making class. I've never had any interest in leather, not that I'm anti-leather. Plus I have sensitive skin so working with glue and leather is probably not the best thing for me. But I wanted ..read more

Helloooo! Looks like another 4 months whizzed past just like that. Here's a roundup of what I've been up to. 1. In June, I attended a sourdough class. I won't tell you the name of the teacher because I wasn't completely happy with the class. It's not that the teacher sucked but she's quite mean. If you really want to know who the mean teacher is, you'll need to ask me privately. Since the class, my sourdough game has not improved at all. In fact, I'm quite close to giving it up. 2. In July, I attended a pasta making class. What a gamechanger this class was. In all honesty, the teacher wasn ..read more

I'm still alive. The past four months whizzed by so fast. My memory is pretty bad nowadays. I can barely recall what I did in February and March. What I do remember is it was stressful. My son was waiting to hear back about his internship application and I was imagining all kinds of worst case scenarios. Typical of me. Thankfully he managed to get hired and has now completed one month of internship. 5 more to go! Hubs was also going through his own crisis as well. Thankfully my memory is bad so I can only vaguely remember some of the tension and stress February and March brought me. Oh, I almo ..read more

Hello! It's now the Year of the Tiger (Feb 1st 2022 to Jan 31st 2023). How has your Tiger year been? I think I'm starting the year well. Firstly, right after Chinese New Year, I went to the dentist. Yes, voluntarily. Thanks to the pandemic I haven't visited the dentist for the past 2 years. Yikes! TMI? This year, I decided I wasn't going to live my life constantly fearful of Covid. Not that I intend to live carelessly. But it's been 2 years and I shouldn't avoid doing necessary stuff that requires me to be unmasked like getting my teeth cleaned and checked out. Just to be on the safe side, I ..read more

Hello people, I didn't realise I've been gone so long. But aren't you glad 2021 is almost over? What a dreadful year it's been. And we all thought 2020 was bad. Hahaha. I'm really looking forward to 2022 (just to get out of 2021) even though next year is the Year of the Tiger which is traditionally not a lucky year but I don't believe in horoscope so there! Anyhoos, in Singapore we never managed to transition to endemic because Omicron made its appearance and refused to leave. Our social gathering/household visitors/dining out is still capped at 5 people which is fine for my family because we ..read more

  So I was terribly unhappy with my scrap fabric situation. Slowly over the years, I've thrown away some tiny scraps which aren't useable but there's so much left. In fact it keeps growing because I keep buying new fabric and using them. It's an endless cycle but I wanted to at least try to use a tiny portion of the scraps in small art quilts so I'll have something pretty to look at instead of heaps of scrap fabric.  The first quilt I made is a no-brainer. Birds flying in the sky towards the sun. The formation of the birds were ripped off Singapore's national day fly past. Just ..read more

Basic Bread

Since 2017, I've been trying to attend a Basic Bread class. I would sign up for it and somehow things would happen and I would not be able to attend. Finally one day I managed to get a confirmed class and was ready to go for the class. Then a phone call came to inform me the school was closing down and therefore the class was cancelled. I decided to give up on the class because I've been baking bread for a few years using knowledge gained from friends, youtube, instagram and blogs so I probably already have basic bread baking skills. Instead I tried signing up for intermediate/advanced bread c ..read more

This year's been incredibly cruel to me. It's one hundred percent due to my bad judgement. I had injured my left shoulder last year and it was very slowly healing on its own. I did see a physiotherapist (subsidized) once and he did a few shoulder manipulations (press here, press there, pull here, pull there) and taught me 2 very simple exercises to do every day which he said should fix the problem. By the way, he was insistent I did not have a shoulder issue. He was very sure I had a neck issue. Also, he told me I'm not allowed (by him I suppose) to see him again for the same ailment unless I ..read more
