Had this on a cheat day. 🍦
Starting to learn how to use a proper camera haha. Thanks cousin for the camera and tips! @kelvin.ylt (He shoots film too!)

A slow Saturday it shall be. ☕️
FOUND MUJI. ✨
Back at Curious Palette last weekend for an iced long black. ✨
Big breakfast with new tableware from yesterday's Found MUJI haul at Plaza Singapura! Yesterday was truly a day dedicated to MUJI haha. And I've to give @magazine.b a mention - I didn't even feel like putting down the mag after reading for 2 whole hours. Also learnt a new word - MUJIRER - which means a fan of MUJI haha. How could I have not known!
Enjoyed an amazing lunch at @dehesa.sg yesterday. Each dish came with a myriad of flavors and textures and we left not just satisfied but blown away by the dining experience. The savory seafood and squid ink paella left quite an impression and the dessert at the end, a homemade dark chocolate ice-cream served with olive oil and sea salt was an amazing concoction. Give it a try if you haven't.
Simple lunch from last week. ❤️
This was a sneaky photo but I had to capture a really precious moment. I spotted a lady in her 50s bringing her old mother to the Yayoi Kusama exhibition and she was explaining an art work to her mother in dialect. • Today I spoke to two grandmothers who told me that they found not much more meaning in life. They didn't want to trouble their children, to the extent that they would spend the entire day sitting alone at home, and one of them quietly bore the intense pain - from a bad fall that had actually fractured her spine and ribs - for days before she finally couldn't take it anymore. • They knew their children would run to their help but they would rather keep mum because their kids 'have their own kids too'. 'Money should not be wasted on me.' One of them proudly told me she has 11 grandchildren but insisted that they shouldn't waste their time visiting her. They felt they were not worth any time and attention. • With just an hour chat with a girl they've never met before, the grandmas opened up and told me their fears and insecurities. They were grateful for my visit and our chat. And I'm deeply embarrassed that for my own grandmother, I only gave her half a day of my time last year - zero this year. I remember her smile when I left her home after my last visit, and I thought that I've done my part as a granddaughter. But clearly, even if there wasn't a request from her, I should have given her more of my time because it's actually so precious to her. • Let's do something for them. I'm sure it would mean so much more to them than we can ever imagine.

Embracing mornings and bedtime routine. 🍵🕯📖✨
It's ironic how the popularity of Yayoi Kusama's exhibition has prevented people from accessing the art works. Don't squat, don't touch, you only have 20 seconds, go somewhere else it's too crowded here... It felt more like a theme park than a museum space. I've enjoyed the exhibition though I wished I had more time and space to connect with her world.
Lunch at Curious Palette with the @foolproof_ux team after our dance lesson. Now at the Yayoi Kusama exhibition! 😱
Still find it amazing that this is part of my diet meal plan... 😏😱
The amazing lunch we had in Ubud. 😋😋😋 The effort they put in to style the dish!
