  • Back at Little Rogue. A little Sunday morning fuel, and then back to studying. A last stretch of 3 weeks or so till I get to see the wife and kid. Can't wait! Family and kitchen time!

  • Le Classique Coq Au Vin // my first exposure to French cuisine was more articulate, precise and much more fancy, given the working environment. But as time passed, I was drawn closer to the emotional side of cuisine, not toward the artistic. The rustic, hearty and comforting aspects of cuisine was what I favored. Though it was a really short stint as an apprentice chef, I'm still very much in love with French cuisine.

  • a little warmth in the gloom // a rainy Sunday morning can be warmed up with a cuppa. Little Rogue, a little hole in the wall, great coffee. I really hope you stay as chill so I can chill there more.

  • It's been a strange couple of months being back here, been feeling emotionally detached from everything going on here. Like there's been a lack of concern in most of what I do. Other than rationality keeping me doing what I have to, I don't really feel what's going on. Just have to hang in there I guess.

Common Man Coffee Roasters, Singapore

There’s nothing common about Common Man Coffee Roasters, they made that statement with their doors; a pair of griffins with glowing red eyes stand guard, watching every patron as they go past. I expected a quirky, almost awkward shophouse with mismatched...

Penny University, Singapore

I’ve heard a lot of raving about Penny University, and about how busy it is. It’s one of the rare few specialty coffee and brunch places in the east side of Singapore, so I just had to check them out.   Upon entering the small air-conditioned shophouse,...
