Eggs Benedict with Pulled Pork ($19)

BRICK LANE

Now that I’ve finished with my Masters degree in clinical pharmacy, I’m free to be a lady of leisure until I start med school next year. And once I had realised that each semester in medical school is something like 17 weeks long (instead of the usual 13), I became extra intent on getting some hardcore relaxation in before I head off. Thus, Friday Dates [...]

LUNE CROISSANTERIE

I have another foodie confession to make – I don’t like croissants. I mean, I don’t specifically dislike them, but if you stick a pastry crescent in front of me, I can take it or leave it. As far as I’m concerned, flaky and buttery alone are not enough to get me excited. Yet, I found myself crawling out of bed at 8am on my [...]

After realising that going to bed at 2am and sleeping in until noon on weekends makes for an excruciating Monday, I’ve started making an effort to set myself more reasonable bed and wake-up times. Then lo-and-behold, all of a sudden I have way more daylight hours at my disposal, and what better way is there to make use of [...]

THE BAKER’S WIFE

It had taken 3 painful (but also highly amusing) years, but my sister is finally able to be in Chris’ company without succumbing to spasms of giggles and embarrassment. This development makes me incredibly happy; aside from the obvious fact that I like it when two of my favourite people get along, it also means that I now have my very own squad to go [...]
