Smoothie Time!


Special thanks to my Cusinart blender.  MmMmm good.


One of my guilty pleasures…

I love dessert, but I don’t eat them. From the sugar, eggs, and lots of cream, I totally avoid desserts when possible. However, I do admit I enjoy watching CUPCAKE WARS!!!

I mean, who knew baking & competing for the covenant title of Cupcake Wars, could be so brutal?!


Spent my Winter on the beach!

2010 was a fantastic year, filled with unforgettable memories.  My husband and I, kicked off the year by spending a couple of weeks in pure sunshine and tropical weather. We managed to run out businesses remotely, but still had plenty of time to relax.


Are you eating FAKE blueberries?

Sometimes you really don’t get what you pay for.  In today’s news on LA Times.com, I came across a very disturbing article about major food companies cutting corners by putting “fake” blueberries in their foods.  People are usually  buy a cereal or snack that contains fruit, because they automatically think it will be healthier.  Blueberry has gotten really popular over the years, because it is very healthy and contains antioxidants.  It’s a shame that big and well known food companies are clearly taking advantage of consumers.

Day 2: Singapore in 2011

Yep, there's a giant 3 story Forever 21 here.

Love the modern LED escalators

No Apple Stores in Singapore. Gotta get your MAC from Epic Center.

Waffle sandwiches from Marvelous Cream

Cheers to our waffle sandwiches. Thought it was ice cream, but it turned out to be cream. Yucky.

LA street wear is catching on in Singapore. This store is called The Vault.

A cute Thai Restaurant

Pretty and festive Chinese New Year decor at the mall. Love it!

Oh yes! The real Hainan Chicken Rice. So yummy.

There is it! Hainan Chicken Rice


It’s good to be back home in S’pore

After a 1 year hiatus, JP & I managed to come back home for a visit to S’pore.  Not much has changed since our last visit.  High rise buildings and modern shopping plazas are still under construction in and around Orchard Road, but some things remain constant, and that’s the huge selection of delectable food & treats.

Do enjoy my photo diary of this long overdue trip back home.  I’ll be posting additional photos each day.

 

En route, hanging out in the lounge @ the airport.

Mini cocktails on board. =)

Now here comes the food & shopping!

Audrey Fashion & Beauty Magazine

On my days off, I love perusing the aisles of Barnes & Nobles for some good reads.  The magazine aisle is section, with hundreds of hidden gems.

Recently, I found this awesome women’s fashion & beauty magazine called Audrey.  The content is fresh, modern, and features all sorts new (and well known) brands and luxe beauty products.  It’s not stuffed full useless pages of perfume advertisements and Ralph Lauren ads.  =)

I hear Audrey Magazine is also available online as well.
