The 5th International Chinese Film Festival 2013

A long overdue update! -smiles sheepishly- After a long and HOT day spent at Singapore Day 2013 at the Domain, we also had to attend the 5th International Chinese Film Festival 2013 held at the Events Cinema @ George Street! So how does one go from hot and sweaty to looking all wonderful without popping […]

Singapore Day 2013!

Singapore Day 2013!

What exactly is Singapore Day? Singapore Day is the Overseas Singaporean Unit’s (OSU’s) signature event for Singaporeans residing overseas. It is a day-long event that brings the sights, sounds, taste and smells of Singapore abroad. Nothing more comforting than to be able to indulge and reacquaint yourself with a slice of home while overseas. It […]

Finding Lost Family

Finding Lost Family

A few years ago, mummy told me of an auntie I never knew I had. Hmmm, how does that work? Well apparently, my grandparents had a huge argument with my grandfather’s brother’s family over (something along the lines of) some stolen chickens. Both families then stopped talking to one another. Now, my grandfather had other […]

Last Day Of Road Trip

Last Day Of Road Trip

In this tech-dependent day and age, we are so accustomed to having not only a regular mobile network, but also the occasional free Wi-Fi. Frequent travellers always keep an eye out for FREE Wi-Fi wherever we go. Unfortunately, Narooma Palms did not provide that service. THIS is really the main reason why I look forward […]

Road Trip Day 2 – Bermagui and Tilba!

Road Trip Day 2 – Bermagui and Tilba!

Prior to Ben and Alvina arriving, I was hit with a very persistent cold. I was in bed for 2 weeks, drugged up and resting, so I guess my body clock went back to normal. I awoke at 6am and I couldn’t get back to sleep! Grrr! I reached into the fridge for my iced […]

Korean Buddhism Festival [24-28 August 2013]

Korean Buddhism Festival [24-28 August 2013]

Now, this is the first time I’ve come across Korean Buddhism. I’ve always thought that Buddhism was a religion in its own right and all Buddhists were Buddhists! First, a confession. I was excited to see that there was a festival happening that I went from booth to booth, participating and engrossing myself in the […]

Road Trip Day 1 – Arriving at Narooma.

Road Trip Day 1 – Arriving at Narooma.

Road trips: Long drives through windy roads. Stopovers. Car naps. Changing scenery. The one downside of road trips is that they begin waaaaaaay too early in the morning. However, that brings about this little tradition we do on all road trips. That is, a fast-food breakfast. After watching Jamie Oliver’s Pink Slime video on Youtube, […]
