• 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 Alphen Boutique Hotel: 5 star accommodation in Constantia, Cape Town

    Hello all, I really had hoped to blog more once in Singapore but time is just passing by so quickly. I seem to have more freelance writing on my plate than ever before which is great because I don’t have a real job anymore so even the meagre rate per word is better than nothing, but not(…)

  • 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(…)

  • Joburg, do this: Skip Fashion Exchange

    Calling all fashion lovers! Skip got into touch with me to let me know about a really fab event that’s happening soon- the Skip Fashion Exchange.  I love an excuse to go out with my girlfriends, and I think this is a great way to do something different. Basically, the idea is that you bring(…)

Cape Town Must Do: Babylonstoren

Cape Town Must Do: Babylonstoren

I’ve said it before- writing about travel on this blog is a way for me to relive that trip or experience, so I like saving my favourites because I know that once the post is published I’m letting go of it in a way. I spent about a week in Cape Town last month (which(…)

Tintswalo Atlantic: An Exclusive Cape Town Retreat

Tintswalo Atlantic: An Exclusive Cape Town Retreat

Hello there! I have a whole stack of blog posts waiting to be written, but things have picked up pace over in Singapore and all of a sudden, I’m left with very little time. Having come from a Finance background, I may have underestimated the amount of work this MBA involves. A lot of it(…)

A home away from home in Durban

A home away from home in Durban

It’s been close to 2 months since we moved out of our home, and since then we’ve been living out of bags, moving from one hotel to the next. My focus is luxury travel, and after a while 5 star chain hotels just turn into a blur. I know exactly what to expect, and nothing really(…)

The perfect weekend getaway at Oaklands Country Manor in Drakensberg

The perfect weekend getaway at Oaklands Country Manor in Drakensberg

On 99% of my travels, my expectations are either met or the experience is below my expectations. Oaklands is probably the first place I’ve been to in ages that has exceeded my expectations to this extent. It’s easy to review super luxurious places that I’d never be able to afford in my personal capacity and(…)

Singapore Restaurant Chronicles: Great Burgers at Potato Head Folk

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(…)

Jozi’s New Mexican Hotspot: Perron in Illovo

Jozi’s New Mexican Hotspot: Perron in Illovo

Hello hello! Apologies for being so quiet, I’ve been living in a bubble that has been far away from reality. I got back from Europe yesterday and had to deal with my inbox, plus tons of admin ahead of our move to Singapore. There’s so much to do, but I’m loving not being at work(…)

The Most Authentic Cape Malay Koeksisters You’ll Find Outside of CT

The Most Authentic Cape Malay Koeksisters You’ll Find Outside of CT

Hello hello! I’m writing from my sister’s place, our temporary home. We arrived back from the US this morning and while we were coming “home”, it didn’t quite feel like that. I guess that’s cos we don’t have our own home in JHB anymore. It feels like we’re just passing through, which we are, I(…)

Top 5 “Coffices” in Jozi

Top 5 “Coffices” in Jozi

When I used to work (seems like a million years ago), all I ever wanted was to be able to work from home. Or in my case, a coffee shop. I love being out and about, and the idea of working around other people, in a nice environment was just a dream to me. One(…)

Oral B Pro Expert Review

Hello everyone! I hope you all had a good week. On my side, I seem to have caught an INSEAD bug that’s going around, so I’m feeling a bit under the weather. I’m taking it easy this morning ahead of a BIG weekend, the Grand Prix is happening all weekend in Singapore- with performances by(…)

The INSEAD MBA: Week 1

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(…)

Do this next weekend in Jozi: Inner City Graffiti Tour with Past Experiences

Do this next weekend in Jozi: Inner City Graffiti Tour with Past Experiences

Over the past few years. I’ve loved getting to know Joburg’s inner city, an area that was “off-limits” to me for so long. However, I have to admit that I did this on my terms- on a touristy inner city bus or in food markets bustling with visitors, as opposed to residents, and within somewhat(…)
