Last couple of weeks were one of the best yet. No better way to end and no better way to begin the year. For NYE, Ant and I took a trip down to Singapore to visit some friends. Our initial plan was to watch fireworks but some people had to fall ill and so we watched the fireworks via live telecast instead with bellies filled with barbecued chicken wings, steak and drinks.
So instead of pretty blurred photos of colourful explosions, here are a few photos of how we spent our time in Singapore. Mostly eating and lots of walking. And we made our customary visit to Loysel’s Toy, again.
I love the triangles and type chosen for the address on the building.
We also visited one of our favourites in Singapore, The Little Dröm Store. They share their space with Kki, a lovely cake shop where we had a chocolate-coffee filled dome and a strawberry champagne cake. Too pretty. We had lunch with Stanley and Antoinette later at Maison Ikkoku (yummy spam musubi with furikake—too hungry to photograph) in Kandahar St. We talked about sourcing refurbished pencil-legged mid-century furnitures and they shared about leaving their jobs, pursuing their dreams (dröm is Swedish for dream) and starting their own business. Some people you meet will drain you and then there are the others who breathe life into you. They’re with the others.
More photos are on Ant’s blog. Will be posting up more in a few days!
In the meantime, here’s a song that’s been a theme of late or rather, I’ve been listening to lately. Enjoy:
