“Don’t judge a book by it’s cover”

This art piece is brilliant and reflective of the reality of who we really owe the beauty of our clean and green concrete landscape to. I have often said to overseas friends, who are very impressed with Singapore’s cleanliness, that there is a reason for that. We have people to pick up after us. Oftentimes […]

A Girly Green Iftar

Me: “I’m having a Green Iftar on National Day, and you’re welcome to come. We’ll be breaking our fast with all things vegetarian.” Cousin:”Huh?! Where’s the meat?

This article has been written in commemoration […]
