The lovely Miss Jenny is visiting Singapore from Hong Kong this weekend and I am so excited to see her!  I have been busily thinking about all the places I can potentially take her....

I have booked dinner for us on Saturday night at Piedra Negra. Jen loves Mexican + a good friend recommended this place. As yummy Mexican is hard to come by in Singapore, I am very excited to try it out!  For those Mexican food loving Brisbane readers, check out my friend's food blog (Brisbane Food Adventures) for a good read on her Mexican adventure.

Piedra Negra is around the corner from Haji Lane, which is one of my favourite streets in Singapore.  It's located in the heart of the Arab Quarter and filled with lots of quirky boutiques and vintage stores.  To find out more, read about Susie Bubble's (fashion blogger) visit to Haji Lane here

Haji Lane is also home to A Thousand Tales/Bar Stories (awesome furniture store and cafe by day and cocktail bar by night) so I think we will definitely be stopping by for a post dinner cocktail.  Cocktails at Nektar may also be an option.

Coffee/brunch at Kith Cafe (where the Mr and I find ourselves at least once every weekend) is a must - along with visiting our awesome bike designing friends, Shaun and Jac of Vanguard (they made/designed Betsy for me and are next door to Kith).  Perhaps more coffee and yummy truffle fries at 40 Hands is also in order with a slight detour to Books Actually (my fave Singapore book store) which is across the road... 

We are running out of meals as I would also love to take her to Kilo (am hanging out to try the food there), Sabio (a great little tapas place we discovered the other day with Andrea & Tilden), L'Entrecote for steak frites or another all time favourite, Wild Rocket for some Singapore fusion cuisine.   Bedrock is off the list as we are taking my lovely sis and bro-in-law there when they are visiting in June!

Hmmm, this seems to be revolving an awful lot around food.... (I haven't even mentioned all the delicious local/hawker food!)...  perhaps I should probably start thinking of some other activities!

Those are great things to do :) Perhaps, also try a walk in the Botanical Gardens with a picnic basket (early in the morning or late in the evening), sentosa for the beach, and Mei Yuen snow shaved ice desserts at Chinatown - temple street (great in this weather) http://am-klutz.livejournal.com/1055271.html Check out little india or chinatown. Actually, Singapore is all about eating and eating :P So You have nailed it right.

Music memories

I have the office to myself this afternoon so I can ditch the headphones and am turning up the music.

I used to be really up to date with music, read music blogs and keep up with new songs, artists, go to gigs.. but this has sort of faded out in the last few years. These days I seem to rely a lot on Spotify and their playlists and recommendations which is great for busy people!

But this afternoon I am feeling a bit nostalgic so reminiscing and playing some songs played at our wedding back in 2010 which is bringing back some beautiful memories.  

Walking down the aisle:

Japan love...

Some friends of ours are currently holidaying in Japan (they were also our wedding photographers and have an awesome blog here. If you are getting married I definitely recommend them)...
Anyhow, I have been reading their tweets and status updates and am reminiscing and dreaming about Japan.  I spent a year in Sapporo on exchange whilst at uni and have visited Japan I think at least 4 other times... it has been about 2 years since my last visit so perhaps another one is due soon?!?!  There is just something about the place that I love - perhaps it is the memory of some amazing times, the delicious and unique food, the shopping or the wonderful people... I can't put my finger on it but you MUST get there if you haven't already.  
On shopping, some of my must visit stores are:

Uniqlo:  Your one stop shop for basics.  They have also partnered with many designers, companies, artists for the UT project - limited edition tshirts.   UT t-shirts are available in all Uniqlo stores but c…
