A few days ago, Loving Husband & I spent all morning rushing around with errands (he is on Summer Break). When we had a minute to breathe, this is where we found ourselves: at The Daily Scoop to share a Churros Waffle (think: crispy on the outside, light inside, smothered in cinnamon sugar. And a scoop of ice cream each: Simply Chocolate for him, Unusually Apple for me. Bliss!
What did you have for lunch today?

No more trains running through this track.
Formerly part of a railway line that ran between Singapore & Malaysia, this Rail Corridor is currently being developed in parts to make it a safe public space.

Are you a daydreamer?

One of our favourite family outings is to dinner at Liang Court (usually to Saizeria) and then to the Bargain Alley of Kinokuniya. Sadly we received news that this branch of the store will be shutting its doors on 21 April 2019 after 36 years in operation.
