Hello, my name is Rachel. I was born and raised in Singapore until I was on the wrong side of 25, before I moved to London for 5 years, lived in Boston very briefly…and returned to Singapore for good. That is, until we decide to move again.
In the time I was away from home, I fell in love, did a PhD, got married to my best friend M, worked in London for a year, travelled, cooked and baked LOTS, ate very well, and found time to have two babies. Our little potato of a daughter arrived in 2012 and who knew that we would get over the trauma of sleepless nights to have our son in 2015!
I started this blog to chronicle the big and small moments in our lives. I still write about the big and small moments in our lives. Some of my bigger moments have been featured on a couple of websites and platforms. I like to dress my food up a little and take pretty pictures of them; a few of my better food photos have been featured on Tastespotting and Foodgawker. I have also grown to love photography after blogging all these years and am slightly obsessed with composition, colours and stories. I met lots of lovely people in the blogosphere who are inspiring, talented and tenacious and I am thankful for friends like them.
I have a very loving family who supports me in everything I do and I cannot ask for more. I am inspired by my parents and siblings to love my husband and beautiful daughter and son in every way I can, and to carve out new traditions, such as cooking, baking, crafting, travelling and snuggling in bed on Sunday mornings with my little family.
The tiniest dreams in the biggest ways, yes, I have some of those even though I am a stay-at-home-mother now. I’m tucking them away in my private corner, and slowly paving way for them to come true. So, watch this space!
