This week’s entry is a tribute to a few places that sadly won’t be around after 2017: the Rochor Centre (which we visited last year and featured on our website), and the Sungei Road Thieves’ Market (a place we described in detail on our website too). It has been many months since we explored the locations, and to imagine that these gems will be gone for good is a sad thought. Therefore, we decided to visit these locations one last time!

Playgrounds are familiar places for us growing up, and Singapore certainly does not lack any! One can expect to find a playground consisting of slides, swings, see-saws, trazpee rings and climbers in any neighbourhood. However, there are some playgrounds in Singapore built in the 1970s that remain iconic and reflect an older generation of non-technology bound kids who run around playing catch, hide and seek and police-and-thief.

Last week, we took off on an epic journey to Taiwan, the land of good food and great scenery! We travelled with Damian’s friends (Patrick, Clive and Angela), and it was Sandra’s first time to Formosa (the name given to Taiwan during a short-lived Japanese occupation). We stayed in Taipei but travelled out, and our adventure will be described in greater detail in our next few entries!

Hey everyone! It’s been a while, but this week we’re introducing another Makan Hunt (check out our first one here, featuring dim sum).
One of our favourite cuisine (but mostly Sandra’s) hails from the wonderful country of Korea! Korean food is well-known and a quasi-staple in Singapore, with various dishes making their way into the diet of Singaporeans- thinking of bibimbap, kimchi, Korean BBQ, ginseng chicken soup or bulgogi?

So Friday (22 January to be precise heh) was someone’s birthday!
One half of Damianwithsandra grew a year older (I’ll leave you and your snooping senses to find out how old she turned). It was in our own unique fashion that we celebrated her birthday!
Having perused the Internet for a good steakhouse, our choice (or Damian’s, rather) was Les Bouchons, a realistic Parisian steakhouse! It was difficult to keep a pair of hungry souls away from our dinner spot but nevertheless, we found time to enjoy the sights and sounds around Ann Siang Hill!

Hey everyone! We took quite a break from posting entries of our photography adventures, and we’re glad to be back posting regular weeklies for all our readers and friends alike!
This year, we are introducing a new series called Makan Hunt! As true born and bred Singaporeans, our favourite pastime is combing Singapore to find delicious and appetising food (although our palates may differ ever so slightly)! We both aren’t experts at food (unlike certain bloggers and websites heh); we just want to share with our readers of our favourite food places! In this series, we visit eateries that we both enjoyed immensely, usually catering to a particular cuisine!
