Just a quick update

My long-time followers might know that momentarily I live in Singapore. Actually, are more than 10 years now that I live here. Wow! It’s really hard to believe that it’s been over ten years since we made the move and began our life in Singapore. Being here has provided me the opportunity to experience things I never dreamed of. From exotic cuisine and bustling nightlife, to exploration of untouched rainforests and ancient monuments, living in this unique multicultural city gives me a varied and exciting lifestyle.

My followers might also know that I have started this blog to share some of my passions like simple, easy, and healthy home cooking, that doesn’t take up too much of our precious time. I love to share simple recipes that are tried-and-tested by me! I’m also an avid traveler – nothing brings me more joy than immersing myself in different cultures and exploring the natural wonders of this world. But most of all, I’m committed to using this platform for sharing positive energy and good vibes with all of my followers.

For our first few years in Singapore, we used to change places quite often, we got to explore the different neighborhoods, but for the last 6 years, we’ve stayed in the same apartment.

Now with all the craziness and inflation that is going on, our landlord decided, rightfully, to almost double our rent (seeing the opportunity, I would have done the same thing). So, seems that is time for us to move on.

After a short search, we have already found a new place, so we’ll be moving soon.

I am excited to start a new experience in a new place, even because after 6 years in the same place, we’ve quite settled into a routine, and we need some new stimulations.

From the cooking point of view, for a while you’ll not see new recipes from me, because basically the new apartment doesn’t have a proper kitchen. It has though a combined microwave and oven, and my challenge will be to see what I can do with it.

A new experience – a new challenge! I’m so ready for it! It is so great to challenge ourselves sometimes!

Taking on a new challenge can be quite daunting, but there’s something so liberating and empowering about stretching our boundaries. We are all capable of more than we realize – it’s just a matter of recognizing the potential within ourselves. By facing these challenges we create opportunities for growth, discovering things that might have otherwise remained hidden. It is my firm belief that embracing the process of challenging ourselves is one of the best gifts we can give our minds, hearts and souls – it allows us to learn more about ourselves, to become better versions of who we already see in the mirror. I’m so ready for this new experience – here’s to pushing myself further than ever before!

  1. Happy early Easter, it’s probably already Sunday in Singapore. It’s disappointing but exciting to shake it up. Get plenty of sleep to help refresh you for the hard work of moving. πŸ™‚

  2. I’m sorry to hear that you’re moving but at the same time, it sounds like an adventure. I like your optimism and positivity! Wow! 10 years of living in Singapore is incredible. I’m only visiting Singapore for 2 weeks and wish I could live here, but with inflation I totally get it. Wishing you all the best with the move – I can imagine that you’re very busy these days!

    1. Hi Hilary, I’m really sorry I missed your messages…Living in Singapore has its up and downs, but so far is worth it πŸ™‚ 10 years is a long time, I even don’t know how they passed by so fast πŸ™‚

  3. Good luck with your new place! Don’t worry about the small kitchen, you can do wonders with a microwave/oven, I know this from experience! Add an air fryer or electric frying pan to the mix if you have room, and you are all set!

  4. Oh my; I didn’t know you were in Singapore! I hear that it’s a beautiful city but expensive so I can’t imagine just how much more expensive it can be….anyway; appreciate your thoughts as you move and that you are willing to keep us cyber-travelers updated. Just on a RESURRECTION Sunday note-my positive energy comes from knowing Jesus Christ as my Savior and Lord and living in His resurrection life by faith in all that He is and all that He represents!!!

  5. Singapore is a beautiful country as it seems and time really flies! I just wish you the best of luck and may this change brings you better things and days 😊 change is scary and it can be challenging sometimes but it’s always necessary and for the best as well. I hope you will settle up very soon and be comfortable πŸ€—πŸ’•πŸ§Έ
