Sprucing it up


Would you believe that I only finally took my camera out after 3 weeks ?

After spending the past few weekends cleaning & settling in the apartment, I wanted to take a break. I was determined not to go to Ikea again (darn, I forgot to buy a colander & *gasp* wine opener my last trip there).

My food entries will probably be about eating out (at least for now) because my kitchen isn't properly equipped yet. Do you know how painful it is to start from scratch - I'm missing fish sauce, mirin, anchovies, mustard, cheese grater...the list goes on. Not that I haven't started cooking but nothing inspiring & definitely nothing worth blogging about.

Last weekend, some friends were heading over to Spruce for brunch & I quickly agreed to join them. Since when was there an office compound called Phoenix Park ?

As much as I enjoy eating outdoors, I was glad they made a reservation indoors (have you noticed how hot it has been lately?). I love the clean simple layout of the restaurant which seems to extend to the food. I know, I should have taken pictures of the food but I totally forgot.

Between the 6 of us, we probably ordered everything on the menu & none of us were disappointed. I promise to take some photos the next time I'm there, which will probably be very soon.

So you are back blogging in Spore.

So how is your daughter adjusting to the hot & humid weather & preschool?

Does she feel settled in?

Not just ingredients. I'm missing baking pans, whisk, oven trays, cheese grater, rolling pin, grill pan...I miss my well stocked kitchen back home
