window shopping...

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.

Home made granola - our very own crunchy monkey

When we were in Phuket last month, the Mr found some really tasty locally made granola by Crunchy Monkey at the supermarket.   We liked it so much we bought a few bags home with us.  The little Miss is a big fan and is always asking to eat 'crunchy monkey' (even when it isn't breakfast time!).

Unfortunately our stocks are running low and good quality granola (that is not just toasted oats) is so expensive!  So to keep me and the little girl busy on the weekend and to try and combat the jetlag I was suffering, I decided to try and make our own.  It was way easier than I expected and is super yum.  It was also a fun and easy way to get the little Miss involved in cooking.

I tried a simple recipe but I think I will try other variations next time.  I turned to trusty google and this one was the first result after searching 'home made granola' so I adapted it and gave it a go...
