Brunch at PS.Cafe

Taking advantage of the close proximity to Singapore, my parents and brother drove down from Kuala Lumpur for the weekend to visit us in our new home. 

Not a whole lot was planned besides eating and chilling in our pool - which we hadn't been able to enjoy much ourselves until a few dasy ago. I genuinely didn't know how much I would love having a pool in the 'backyard' until we actually did. I can't get enough and I'm just SO HAPPY to be able to bust this out ALL.YEAR.ROUND. 

I digress. I was excited to take the folks out to a spot I'd only been to dinner before, but is oh so much more prettier in the daytime - PS. Cafe on Harding Road in Dempsey Hill.

Taking over a colonial bungalow, it's set in the midst of very lush greenery. Although located a mere 5-minute drive from the hustle and bustle of the main Orchard Road shopping drag, it's designed to feel like you're dining in the middle of a tropical rainforest.

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas from warmer shores. No white Christmas in this part of the world but we make up for it in other ways: 

I am off to Kuala Lumpur for the first time since our wedding, and have packed this old, festive Anthropologie dress for celebrations ahead. Too much red? Never!

Have a wonderful time with loved ones and hope Santa is generous to all of you this year!

Furniture Shopping at Taylor B

So after viewing nearly 20 different apartments in various inner-city neighbourhoods on the island, we've locked in a place that will home! I am very excited to move in next week although now we have to deal with the big task of decorating the place. Made slightly monumental since we chose to move with no furniture apart from our bed. 

We'd heard plenty about Taylor B from friends. Unlike traditional furniture stores, Taylor B is a massive 4-floor warehouse situated right by the Keppel shipping container terminals - allowing pieces to move from ship-to-shop seamlessly. Styles in the shop vary from Victorian to industrial to vintage and pricing is more affordable than otherwise. (Just wait till you see how exorbitant Crate and Barrel is here!)

I took the liberty of taking photos of some of the more interesting things in the store:
Shelves made from 'tin' briefcases - unique but rather clunky when opening and closing the drawers
