I have previously blogged about Haji Lane - one of my fave streets in Singapore.  I took Jac there on the weekend so I thought it was a good chance to tell you about some of my favourite stores if you are ever stopping by!
  • Green Poppies:  come here for your fill of cute stationery and on trend but affordable clothes.  I was very tempted by a cream lightweight blazer but figured I didn't really need to add another jacket to my wardrobe especially when I live in a tropical climate... even though I secretly think I may go back and buy it - what can I say, the aircon is cold in my office!
  • Soon Lee:  lovely little emporium filled with books, accessories and clothes. They were having a book sale on the weekend so I bought a hard cover copy of Little Women (my all time favourite childhood classic) and The Beautiful and the Damned
  • Threadbare and Squirrel: Cuteness. Jac bought a great pair of earrings from here.
  • Salad Shop: come here for pretty homewares
  • Grey Homme: clothes for the boys
  • Pluck: vintage store serving yummy ice cream and apple crumble
  • Dulcetfig: vintage store and they also have a cute little and friendly shop cat who always says hello
  • Tangers: cheap and pretty clothes
Haji Lane is located in the Arab Quarter/Kampong Glam area which is a wonderful area to explore - there are heaps of beautiful fabric and textiles stores, shops selling perfumes and oils and colourful shophouses.

For some respite from your shopping, check out newly opened coffee place Maison Ikkoku (which we very happily discovered on the weekend) or have some nasi padang and a milo dinosaur at Kampong Glam Cafe. yum.

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.

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…
