A new wardrobe...

A little baby B is on his/her way in November so that means the time had come for this mama-to-be to buy some new clothes... so on the weekend I traipsed off to Orchard Road to pick up some new things.

First stop was Uniqlo - one of my favourite stores and one of the best places I think for basics.  I picked up a breton stripe nautical top. a stripey dress and yes I admit it... denim jeggings... I can't turn down an elastic waist these days :)

At Mango I found some bright blue goodies - a pair of elastic waisted shorts and a stretchy jersey dress for work/evening...  


Whilst not a new addition to the wardrobe, I did end up buying the cutest little giraffe for the little bub from Muji.   The Mr and I have since christened this little cutie "Rafael" and he is patiently waiting the arrival of his new owner/friend.  




All in all not a bad shopping day and I successfully avoided purchases at 'maternity' shops which from the few I walked into on the weekend were all pretty fugly!   Hmmm maybe a niche market business idea for Singapore? :)

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...
