As I was running through the Ginger Garden in the Botanic Gardens, I chanced upon this unusual heliconia. I stopped to take a look as it is not the usual “Birds of Paradise” that we see all over the garden. I believe this one is commonly known as a Lobsterclaw.

I love hot drinks. No matter how sweltering the Singaporean weather is, I love a strong cup of breakfast tea with a splash of milk.
Until now. It started with coffee several years ago; even decaf made me a light-headed and nauseated. Too much tea also makes me feel unsettled. It was long overdue for me to find non-caffeinated alternative. Continue reading “Fresh Turmeric & Ginger Tea”
The Marina Bay area is stunning at night. Loving Husband and I had a stroll on the promenade on Saturday while waiting for Darling Daughters who were at the Esplanade: Theatres by the Bay, watching the Stuttgart Ballet’s Romeo & Juliet. It was a balmy evening, rather festive with cyclists, pedestrians & live music from an al fresco cafe, enlivening our walk. Continue reading “Share Your World: a Singaporean Nightscape”
One of Singapore’s most popular tourist sites is in my backyard; well, it is just across the street. So, I fortunately find myself there a couple of times a week. One of my favourite features in the Botanic Gardens is this sculpture, Swing Me, Mama, sculpted in serpentine (spring stone) by Dominic Benhura (1995).

Many of us find inspiration in Nature.
Singapore may be a city, but there are many wonderfully green places for pedestrians to wander about, mull over life’s mysteries and be inspired. I love exploring the Park Connector network when I have the chance; these dedicated walkways/cycle paths run between parks to allow one to park hop, providing safe passage for pedestrians & cyclists. The Alexander Canal Linear Park is a beautiful and particularly lovely example, running alongside several housing developments. Continue reading “Share Your World: Inspired by Nature”

Not quite green eggs & ham, but nevertheless, a challenge. I am not sure why drinking “vegetable drinks” is difficult for me, after all, I love vegetable soup. If you had told me that I would be drinking Green Juice before today, I would have collapsed in hysterical laughter. Continue reading “Green Juice”
Older Daughter & Loving Husband planted a handful of rosehip seeds which they harvested from a rosehip plant. This little guy was the only one who sprouted. Older Daughter checks on him every morning and evening, watering him carefully and tenderly. We are all waiting with her to see if more leaves will grow. Continue reading “Please grow!”
“Look at these leaves: they look artificial!” exclaimed Older Daughter as we brushed past this planter box after breakfast.
Younger Daughter had a break this morning, so we decided to have breakfast with her Sister on Campus before classes started for the day.
