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

Fort Canning Park

Yesterday we decided to explore Fort Canning Park. What a wonderful oasis in the heart of everything. There is no shortage of public and green space in Singapore and that is part of the reason I love it so much but Fort Canning is one of the only hills in Singapore. The country is pretty flat to mildly undulating so this hill is pretty … Read More Fort Canning Park

Thank you

I just wanted to take some time to thank everyone that has read, liked and commented on my posts. Most of you don’t know me in person and my mum tells me the posts are too long to read. She might look at the pictures. So even though the daily posts started as a way to keep our friends and family updated, it has … Read More Thank you

Managing investment properties while living overseas

Investment properties are a great idea but how stressful is it really, to keep them while you live abroad? Well, in our first month living in Singapore we had to:1. Buy and have a new air conditioner installed as the compressor blew at one of our properties.2. Buy a new stove top for our unit because it started smoking from the buttons when in … Read More Managing investment properties while living overseas

Joo Chiat and East Coast Park

Joo Chiat We thought about going up to Malaysia for the day or to Universal because we had no plans. TW’s work bonus was oversold and under delivered so we ended up going with the budget-friendly option of exploring places we haven’t been to yet. What the Pandan? had mentioned the area in a comment. I then read their post about eating in Joo … Read More Joo Chiat and East Coast Park
