Nothing beats a comforting bowl of Traditional Indonesian porridge after a day of food poisoning. Thank you @themuliabali for this soul food! Without it, I probably wouldn't have been able to recover and enjoy a spectacular lunch at @restaurantlocavore!

As cliché as it sounds, I booked a ticket and left for an impromptu getaway to Bali for the weekend, only getting my flight and accommodation confirmed 2 days in advance 😅 Luckily, the weather's been nice and sunny despite it being the rainy season. Hands up if you're into spontaneous holidays too! #rusticgamestrong #xlbcrxbali #sisterfieldsbali . . . . . . . . #lifeandthyme #eattheworld #beautifulcuisines #handsinframe #fellowmag #foodvsco #thefeedfeed #vscocam #inmykitchen #theartofslowliving #onthetable #f52grams #passionpassport #beautifuldestinations #beautifulhotels
Every year, I look forward to the Lunar New Year because it's only once a year that we get to enjoy rare treats such as the Pen Cai (盆菜), Yu Sheng (鱼生) and of course not forgetting the Nian Gao (年糕), each laden with their own significance, that bring people together. Hope you're all having good reunions with your loved ones! As for me, it's off to Bali to enjoy the long weekend!

The joy in food photography for me is the styling of elements, piecing them together to tell a story, evoke a mood and whet appetites with the eyes. Styled from scratch and shot is a trio of double-boiled broths: watercress, lotus root and pigs stomach soup, my ultimate comfort food! #rusticgamestrong . . . . . . . . . #lifeandthyme #eattheworld #beautifulcuisines #handsinframe #fellowmag #foodvsco #thefeedfeed #vscocam #inmykitchen #theartofslowliving #onthetable #f52grams

And it was all yellow at @downtowngallerysg’s Yellow Bash! Downtown Gallery is now officially opened! Located in the heart of the CBD, Downtown Gallery provides an exciting array of food, leisure and retail experiences, including co-working spaces and fitness facilities. I got a taste of Chen’s Mapo Tofu, Dosirak & Venue by Sebastian last Friday as well - so much food, so little time! Head down to Downtown Gallery, everything’s waiting for you! #DTGYellowBash #downtowngallerysg . . . . . . . . . . #lifeandthyme #eattheworld #beautifulcuisines #handsinframe #fellowmag #foodvsco #thefeedfeed #vscocam #inmykitchen #theartofslowliving #onthetable #f52grams
