I’ve been feeling a bit drowsy and not as energetic lately. I thought it may have been a combination of my friend’s wedding preparations and a bit of insomnia but I realised last Friday that it was also due to a lack of coffee and a good brunch! The last time I had brunch out […]…
I’ve never really liked farewell parties. They always made me sad as usually a friend is leaving for good. I don’t like saying goodbyes like most people wouldn’t. The other day I went to Ichi’s farewell dinner at Mitre Tavern, he’s an ex-colleague who gave me a lot of guidance in terms of where to […]…

I’ve recently gotten myself addicted to purchasing group discount coupons from places such as Scoopon and OurDeal. They offer great value meals to restaurants that I would otherwise not visit.
