Hello, Hello, Hello.
First off, HAPPY INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY! I am so grateful to have so many incredible women and role models in my life. It is inspiring to see women rising up for equality, equal rights, human rights, empowerment, sisterhood, the planet, self care, self love and peace, and helping so many through their lines of work, protest, creation and expression. And not to forget all the incredible women of the past who worked so hard to help all of us women in this day and age. It is wonderful.
I am so very happy to say that I am back home in the UK. I literally am so happy to be home. It is SO nice to see faces I have not seen for ages and not be BOILING HOT. I know I always bang on about Australian heat, but I am so built for UK weather instead. It is sooooo dreamy to be all cosy, have soup and drink warming cups of tea. BLISSFUL.
So we left Australia on the 1st March and had 4 nights in Singapore to break up the journey and have a little break for me and JL. As Davida says in her recent youtube video, the stresses of a cross planet move can take a toll on your relationship in that all you are doing is sorting things for the move. It was SO nice to be able to just spend time together, relax and have fun. It is a privilege to be able to have done that, but it was so needed and so appreciated.
We had the perfect mix of getting out to do some site seeing and also relaxing hard in our hotel which had a free spa to use with these amazing mineral pools and jacuzzi water baths. So restful and so needed. Moving back across the world has been challenging and this little relax was perfect.
Now, to inspire your tastebuds, I am sharing some of my favourite eats from the four days. This is by NO MEANS everything I ate, just a couple of the favourites. One of the best things about a hotel breakfast in Singapore is that there is so much to choose from because it is such a diverse country. You have everything from curry, to ramen noodles to waffles and pancakes. I mean, talk a bout a paradox of choice. SO GOOD.
We ended up being super lazy and only eating out one night. The other three nights we ordered in, one night, room service and the other three nights we got deliveroo. I know, I know, but we were so tired we just rolled with it and it was actually JUST what we needed.
The first night we were knackered from the plane so we ordered room service. We split an Indian platter and some noodles. Seriously good food. We’ve got veggie noodles, mix of veggies curries one with paneer (omg paneer is so good), rice, poppadoms and naan bread. Hit the spot.
Veggie burgers from Real Food with chips, onion rings and dumplings. We LOLLED when we opened up the side portions of three chips and three onion rings. Luckily we ordered the dumplings too so we ended up satisfied. We also got it again on another night and that burger at the end I had was amazing. It was a battered lentil croquette thing and was SO tasty! Highly recommend this place.
These burgers from nomVnom were the nicest vegan burgers I have EVER had. I am not vegan but I do love a veggie/vegan burger. Mine was a tempeh peanut number and OMG seriously so so so so good. I literally could eat it every day. If you are in Singapore GO THERE. It is in a shopping centre, butttttt it is by the water so you can go for a nice pretty walk along the river after your cheeky burger.
These bad boys were cookies from a confectionary shop below our hotel. We had dark chocolate salted, chocolate chip and cashew shortbread. All AMAZING.
On two mornings I had curry and crispy flatbreads for breakfast at the hotel. I could literally eat curry for every single meal, I just love it. These curries were so tasty and just spicy enough so that it didn’t blow your mouth of but was nice and warming. Love, love, love.
As you can see, there were many tasty eats and those were some of my favourites from the trip. I guess you can say that I love burgers and curry a lot ha…
I might be a bit sporadic with blog posting over the next few weeks while we settle in and sort things out, but I hope to really get posting regularly soon. Now is the time for me to really focus on awesome blog content and make this space all I dream of now I know the direction I want to go in and what I feel I am here to do :). The blog has had its ups and downs in consistency ever since I started it a few years ago. But now I know who I am, and what I want to write and share, hopefully this can become a consistent space for people to come to for positive and real inspiration to make peace with food, bodies and ourselves.
I hope you have had a lovely day!
Have you ever had a big move?
