• Kuramathi Maldives- 5 star luxury at 4 star prices

    Hello there! In my last post about Maldives, I told you about Kandolhu- a stunning 5 star resort. Today, I wanted to tell you about the other resort we experienced, Kuramathi. To be honest, I was quite grumpy when we arrived. Our flight landed at 11am, and we had to wait at the Male airport(…)

    Hello there! As promised, I’ve been trying to get back into blogging by letting go of some of my other commitments- and so far, so good! Today, I want to tell you about our trip to New Zealand. NZ is one of those places that is just so far away from anything, making it difficult(…)

  • Dresden for the weekend: my first solo trip

    Hello everyone! I know, I’ve been really quiet lately. It really wasn’t intentional. I’ve been focusing on paid writing and with the limited time I have, I just stopped making time for the blog. I enjoyed writing when I did it because I wanted to, not because I had to, so I’m going to refocus(…)

A weekend in Vietnam: Halong Bay and Hanoi

Hello hello! Happy New Year! Hugest apologies for being this quiet lately. To say I’ve been busy is an understatement. The last few months have just passed by in a flash. In between travelling almost every weekend, I’ve been swamped with MBA stuff. I have to say that I’m really enjoying it now that we’re(…)

Dim Sum Brunch at Mandarin Oriental

Dim Sum Brunch at Mandarin Oriental

In Singapore, brunching is huge, especially on the weekends. People tend to show up at around 11am, and enjoy Prosecco or Bloody Marys until 2pm or 3pm. Most brunch spots offer the usual- Eggs Benedict, Pancakes… you know the deal. Recently, Mandarin Oriental in Singapore invited me over to try their Dim Sum brunch at(…)

Jozi’s New Tapas Spot: Vicky Cristina’s

Jozi’s New Tapas Spot: Vicky Cristina’s

I know I know, Vicky Cristina’s isn’t still “new”, but there is a chance you may not have been there yet. If this is the case, go! I went during the day, and admittedly, the black and red decor does lend itself more to a nighttime ambiance. We tried a little bit of everything and(…)

Singapore Restaurant Chronicles- Finally, good wine that doesn’t break the bank!

Singapore Restaurant Chronicles- Finally, good wine that doesn’t break the bank!

Before the MBA got started officially, I had about 2 weeks to do restaurant reviews. I really thought that I’d continue reviewing restaurants at the same pace as I did back in SA, and was super excited about discovering a new country’s food. Now that I’ve settled into a routine, it isn’t quite working out(…)

Singapore Restaurant Chronicles: The Entertainer at Saha

Singapore Restaurant Chronicles: The Entertainer at Saha

A while ago, I was invited to my very first blogging event in Singapore. The event was to introduce the Entertainer app to Singapore bloggers. It was so exciting to meet these bloggers, and realise that they’re not that different from me. More importantly, it was great to get restaurant recommendations for Singapore! I always feel(…)

Singapore Restaurant Chronicles: Great Burgers at Potato Head Folk

Hello there I’ve been missing the blog terribly- I’ve been itching to write but just haven’t found the time. I may have taken on a little too much in the social sphere, such that I don’t have time for much else (including school work!!) I’m the social rep for my class, the president of the(…)

The Equilibrium Centre in Saxonwold

The Equilibrium Centre in Saxonwold

Everyone has their own preference when it comes to exercise- some love escaping in the swimming pool, while others prefer road running. For some, more “low key” exercise hits the spot, where it’s as much about achieving mental stillness as it is about exercising the body. This is where yoga and pilates at the Equilibrium(…)

2 months in Singapore

2 months in Singapore

Hey hey I’m writing this post because I’m really in the mood to blog, which is the best time to write- not when you have to or need to. I actually miss being just a blogger and not a freelance writer, because back then, every single blog post was written with passion. Now, I simply don’t(…)

The INSEAD MBA: Week 1

Hello hello! Since my last post, things have picked up a lot. Last week was completely consuming- socially, mentally, physically. I had no time to even think about anything else. I’m not quite sure how to start telling you about it… so maybe I’ll start at the beginning. The first few days were all about getting(…)
