Flower Dome Tulipmania

Flower Dome Tulipmania is on. Tulips and the northern hemisphere spring are upon us. I love the display in the flower dome. I love that Singapore brings the best of the world to us. So we don’t have to think about it. The cherry blossoms have come and gone, the tulips are here for now. Soon another display will arrive to showcase the world. … Read More Flower Dome Tulipmania

SuperTree by Indochine

Last night we went to dinner at Gardens by the Bay to celebrate our 2nd wedding anniversary. To make it special I had booked SuperTree by Indochine. The restaurant announced it was closing as Gardens by the Bay now has plans to turn the SuperTree into an observation deck. What I didn’t realise when I booked was just how much taller than everything else … Read More SuperTree by Indochine

Singapore is more than a shopping stopover

Singapore is more than a shopping stopover, it is the ultimate family getaway. I enjoy childish things and I am really in my element here. There is something about the way this country does things that just make it so fun for adults and kids, yet I understand the point was to engage the youngsters. It isn’t just me drawn in to these displays … Read More Singapore is more than a shopping stopover

Vetmobile – Singapore

When Lola arrived we got Vetmobile to come out and do up a new script and generally check up on her. She had just been through vets for the international move. We weren’t at any of those appointments so being with a vet and asking questions was comforting but we needed to get the script for her asthma anyway so we may as well … Read More Vetmobile – Singapore

Returning to our old neighbourhood

I don’t mean in Australia, I mean 200m from where we now live and the Andaz. Between Kampong Glam and Little India we had to make a stop in for a photo of the “Gotham” building. Why not get the Duo complex which houses the Andaz in as well? Actually, it was my uncles request but with my new phone I gave it a … Read More Returning to our old neighbourhood

Removable wallpape​​r to help modernise our rental?

TW’s sister in law, Bethany Linz, just released a new collection of fabric and wallpapers. Some inspired by her son and niece and others follow on in her usual style. This time I noticed that removable wallpape​​r is an option and it got me thinking. TW and I both really wanted a modern apartment, do you think a removable wallpape​​r would help our apartment? … Read More Removable wallpape​​r to help modernise our rental?

Queen and New York

So, I booked tickets to see Queen at Madison Square Garden in August. We debated about sitting up on the stage, the tickets left for that were hard to come by. So we settled for New York as those dates worked well with catching other acts around the same time. Metallica in Vienna and Foo Fighters in Belfast. All part of one trip. The … Read More Queen and New York

Flower Dome win with Sharp – Singapore Gardens by the Bay

For any in Singapore who were wondering what the competition is or the rules for it that I mentioned the other day, the one to win a TV. It is running in the flower dome. Sakura Matsuri is the reason for it, I believe. I took a photo last night of the promotion, the rules and the categories. I thought the prize was 3 … Read More Flower Dome win with Sharp – Singapore Gardens by the Bay

Trying to decide what to do for my birthday

TW will be in Australia for work for a week or two and gets back the day before my birthday. I forgot what birthday it was for me, I just remembered yesterday (35) so we want to do something good. We just don’t know what. Pondering things like this takes forever because of all the options. We holiday and eat out a lot so … Read More Trying to decide what to do for my birthday

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
