Here’s one: when does one plus one not equal two? When ‘one’ is a hangover so the result is  MINUS 10,000. (HAHA). That’s just a little ditty about my Friday, Saturday, then Sunday on my first weekend in Singapore. (Also see Garden Beats). It was therefore bordering on miraculous that the majority of people actually turned up, let alone conversed […]

FLASH: The First and Best Singapore Champagne Brunch

I was warned that an electronic music festival on my first weekend in Singapore may give me a skewed impression of life here. Singapore isn’t exactly the next Berlin apparently and Garden Beats is just an exception to the accepted rule that SG nightlife is closer to restaurants and bars than 9am ravers. And to be clear, Garden Beats is not […]

  There are many things that are much cooler when done mid-air. Tiny shots of spirits, or s*x (not guilty), for instance. Cooler than both those though is booking your next trip whilst somewhere 30,000 ft above India. Hello 21st Century, you have finally done what you are for and brought wifi to the sky where it was most naturally […]

Stalkers want to know my address? It’s Robertson Quay, Singapore, Just off The Equator, The World. And honest: it’s freakin’ awesome. You should come. Totally wouldn’t even mind showing round a stranger, I’m that chuffed. Eventually I will devote a whole post or three to the new locality, Robbo Quay (legitimately the coolest area of Singapore, which I know for a […]

Singapore: Day 1 on the Equator

‘Tis the season to say farewell! Not that I claim to be overly popular but since my nearest and dearest got wind of the reality and proximity of my move to the other side of the world they all dutifully clamoured for some ‘me’ time. Time with me that is. I assume this was part because I was shipping off […]

Starting to plan a trip like this is like beginning the Grand National from a standing start and, by all accounts, covering Cambodia in 9 days was always going to be a toughee. However, due to a lull at work meaning I have had ample time to do non-legal research each evening, I think I have now got my itinerary bang on. I […]

How to do Cambodia in 10 Days (HELP ME)

The part of me still being a swotty headmaster’s daughter overly researching my homework wanted to check what ‘adventure’ really means, since recently the word has been increasingly flung at me by those unsure what else to say of my year plans: “Oh well! It’ll be an adventure, that’s for sure“.   ‘Adventure’, you will therefore be fascinated to learn, stems from circa […]

Five Continents, One Girl: The Great Adventure of 2016

Once, I accidentally suggested Yauatcha in Soho as a casual second date spot. His treat. We all know in law that ignorance is no excuse, but honestly inspector, I didn’t know it was Michelin starred. Somehow I got away with my slightly demanding mistake as, 1. Yauatcha isn’t actually stupidly overpriced and, 2. it was downright great (and you’ll be relieved to […]
