Pulled Pork burgers, corn bread, deep fried mac and cheese. What else could you ask for from a mothers day meal?

+ Grand Hyatt Jakarta Breakfast

Grand Hyatt Jakarta Club Lounge

We arrived at the hotel and were checked in before 10:30 which meant breakfast was still available in the Grand Hyatt Jakarta Club Lounge. On Saturday we had until 11am to catch breakfast. Breakfast includes an egg station and a soup, the soup option changed daily but always included noodles. Nom, nom. Best not forget the bacon, potato and sausages. Beef bacon not pork … Read More Grand Hyatt Jakarta Club Lounge

No seats together in flight, unless you take the bulkhead and you must know the bassinet will be in use.

On our flight from Melbourne to Singapore, we were in different bookings, with our assigned seats miles apart. So we went to the lounge and asked if we could move. The amazing lounge agent said we could be moved to two middles seats together or an aisle and a middle seat but that option is next to an infant. Or, just stay where we … Read More No seats together in flight, unless you take the bulkhead and you must know the bassinet will be in use.

Star Wars day in Singapore

It appears that Singapore puts on a show, literally, for Star Wars day. It includes May the Fourth (be with you), Revenge of the fifth/sixth. I guess rather than pick which of the revenge dates they prefer they decided to celebrate both. May 4, 5 and 6 there is a special edition of Garden Rhapsody at Gardens by the bay. Star Wars themed – … Read More Star Wars day in Singapore

Singapore Chilli Crab

Yesterday we had our first taste of Singapore chilli crab. I think the way in which we ate it would annoy so many people. Even the staff offered to give us lessons at one point. The “ordeal” was recorded but I won’t have access to the video for about 5 to 8 months. Which means I can’t watch it and cringe, not yet. The … Read More Singapore Chilli Crab

+ Cherry blossom festival in the flower dome

Cherry Blossom Festival – Sakura Matsuri – Gardens by the Bay

Saturday we went to Gardens by the Bay but TW forgot his membership card and we took so long to walk there we missed most of the 7:45pm supertree grove light display. It wasn’t a waste of a walk because it is always nice to be in the Gardens but I wanted to see the cherry blossom festival in the flower dome. Plus the … Read More Cherry Blossom Festival – Sakura Matsuri – Gardens by the Bay

+ Lola is cute

Do you think Lola misses the farm?

Cat was being a silly head last night. She was snooping around the wardrobe and started to make a bed in something she shouldn’t be digger her claws into so I picked her up. When I picked her up she saw the up spot so I had to let her go up.  Lola loves up, she sat down and took stock of all her … Read More Do you think Lola misses the farm?

+ 3 months celebration TW on the Skyway

3 months living in Singapore, can you beleive​ it?

3 months. Wow, where did the time go?! We have been in Singapore, as expats for 3 whole months. To celebrate, I was up late finishing off our application for what I cannot talk about. Before that, we went to Gardens By the Bay. Our first time on the skyway. TW hilariously got stuck behind people gripping both sides of the walkway. When it … Read More 3 months living in Singapore, can you beleive​ it?

+ Employment pass office riverwalk

Employment Pass office

When we were in getting our visas issued at the employment pass office, I thought the view was amazing. There are apartments above their office so I did look into renting one of those. Yesterday we were back in the area. It really is one of the best views I have seen in a public use government building. The office is also right near … Read More Employment Pass office

Two apples sitting on the bench

Last night we were up late with an interview for a thing and I slept in. It was 9:01am I think when I sent TW a message that I just woke up. I remember him getting out of bed but he was at work, well and truly, by the time I woke up and I was a little sad about it. So, I sent … Read More Two apples sitting on the bench
