Singapore Life #20 – Gobi Macarons

On our last holiday to Melbourne before we moved over here, I dragged poor Key along while I stalked little alleys in the back streets of the Melbourne CBD to get some macarons that had come highly recommended by my macaron loving best friend. I remember moaning to Key that they would

Singapore Life #19 – Singapore Life via Australia

Our trip back home was so great. I got to spend some time with some of my favourite people and I got to meet a new little man who has cemented his place as one of my new favourites. In true Taryn style, I had so much fun, I barely took any photos…I really need to work on that. I

Singapore Life #13 – Kitchen Fails

Singapore Life #12 – Haw Par Villa (Tiger Balm Gardens)

A few weekends ago we visited Haw Par Villa aka The Tiger Balm Gardens. I had read some reviews on trip advisor so I knew what to expect. Haw Par Villa is weird as shit.   It’s known as a theme park, but to me, a theme park has rides and this thankfully does not have rides.

Singapore Life #11 – Singapore’s Favourite Food Festival

Last week we were in a taxi and drove past a big white tent with a sign out the front ‘Singapore Favourite Food.’ I turned to Key with that glint in my eye… another food festival! I had to take one for the team on this one as Key was away for a few days during the week, so I caught th
