Confessions of a Country-Turned-City Mouse

Sometimes, I use this space to talk about weird, annoying, or frustrating things I’ve discovered about living in Singapore.  But the truth is, I love living here.  And I love it for many, many reasons.  But tonight, as I actually work on a serious (and probably controversial) blog post (not this one, another one), here […]

Let’s Talk About Food: Chinese New Year Goodies!

Finally: It’s time to talk about Chinese New Year treats! Previously, I described a bit about our schedule and habits for Chinese New Year visiting, which inevitably includes the consumption of plenty of Chinese New Year goodies.  These treats start popping up everywhere: in supermarkets, in retail stores, and at kiosks in malls and hawker […]

Night Safari

After addressing the post swim hungries, it was time to introduce our guests to the Night Safari!!!

Swimming & Soya Bean Curd

Yesterday was a swim day for me.  [Look, I know you’re a runner, and you might even think swimming is phooey, but don’t click away just yet!  Stick around, and maybe I can change your mind?  Or at least make you laugh?  And besides, there will be *plenty* of running talk here.] My running mileage is […]

Do-It-Yourself Porridge: A Work In Progress

Yesterday, I popped out for a short run on one of the trails near our apartment: Speaking of appetites, let’s get back to the porridge, shall we?   [If you’re confused, check out the first part of the porridge discussion in my last post, What Happens When the Colonizers Don’t Discuss Porridge?] The Chinese equivalent of America’s […]
