6-Hour Eat Drink Walk Singapore

LAU PA SAT I was on a quest to find some Fresh Durian for breakfast. I figured Lau Pa Sat would have it.  Originally Singapore’s first wet fish market, formerly known as Telok Ayer Market, it was formerly located on the South Bank of Singapore River.  Under Sir Stamford Raffles’s remodeling plans of 1822, it…

Boon Tong Kee Chicken Rice: Singapore Must Try

This famous Singaporean restaurant started out serving Cantonese Chicken Rice in a small Chinatown stall in 1979. The signature juicy and tender chicken with its ginger, chili, and dark soy sauces sold itself gaining a wider popularity. By 1983, they opened their first restaurant on Balestier Road. By 1999, they added other homestyle dishes and then…

Tsukiji Sushi Takewaka Singapore

In Wisma Atria 4th Floor, Tsukiji Sushi Takewaka sits among the Japanese themed restaurants. This was the first time we ordered tomato on a bed of ice like this. The flesh was meaty but yielding with a burst of sweetness which just suddenly roused your tastebuds from sleep! This is genuine good food that can’t…

You won’t find any nails, paint, or home building materials here.   Chye Seng Huat Hardware, fondly called CSHH, is situated in the district where several metal and hardware companies of old converged.

Orchard Harvest in Singapore

Last December, the beloved surprised me with a tagalong trip to Singapore. One day, as I walked along Orchard Road’s buzzing bustling crowds outside the luxury brand shops… past my beautiful countrywomen on their day off (who bless their employers with child or house care, the best customer service, or excellent technical skills)… an organization,…

Sad Posts Explained

As it came to my attention that certain people viewed me as sad, it occurred to me that my December posts have mostly sounded like they were written by someone who was.  Before the Lord took me training for reformation of my heart, my Christmas concerns were house decor, gift list, parties. But after overcoming…

Old Truths for The New Year

Over the holidays, I received a message from a loved one that communicated to me how I’ve looked stubborn for my faith in Jesus; it came with an analysis that I’m not honest with myself and do not have the courage to walk away from certain situations that had caused suffering.  I am thankful for…
