Boozy Brunchin – Igloo’s in London

Happy Hump Day!

Winter is here, and so is the cold crip air and annoying silky rain. My friends know that I am largely affected by the weather, like my hair, the rain makes my mood go frizzy and dull and I begin to trade in my long summer nights out and about with movie nights in with a meal and glass of wine. However, with Christmas nearby my social calendar has started to fill up again.

I do not have a single evening free from Wednesday to Sundays for the rest of the year – this is giving me somewhat anxiety especially since I also only have three weeks left until I travel back home to Singapore and have my lovely (also very judgemental) father greet me with the usual “have you put on weight mel” phrase. I swear he does this even when I’ve lost weight (parents hey).

Anyway, over the weekend the girls and I went for a bottomless brunch at the sipping room. It was our little treat to IJ who hosted us in New York City  and is now living back in London and what better way to have a post New York celebration than to booze away with some fried chicken and waffle?

The Shaking History of the Hohenzollern Castle

Most people come to Germany to visit the stunningly magical Castle Neuschwanstein. However, many forget that the Germany monarchy was big, with castle’s splattered all over the castle. In the Schwaben land, where Stuttgart is the main city, the Hohenzollern Castle stands watching over the hilly region.

Celebrating 150 years this year, this castle is as old as the nation of Canada, so you can only imagine the history that haunts it within. Continue reading “The Shaking History of the Hohenzollern Castle”

When in Dubai… Have A Private Yacht Party

If you are looking for a cultural getaway then Dubai probably isn’t your ideal destination. Apart from the Dubai dessert and old souks, the rest of the city is a modern concrete jungle. However, if you want to party all night in extravagant surroundings then this will be your dream. Dubai reminded me of Las Vegas, just with a little more class and less drunken behaviour in public.

I am planning to do a separate post on a Dubai party guide, similar to the one I put together for Vegas pool parties. However, for today, I wanted to share an amazing tip to take your trip to Dubai to another level without having to spend the big bucks.  Continue reading “When in Dubai… Have A Private Yacht Party”

The Struggle of The Modern Day Single Woman

I am surrounded by the modern day independent woman who gets what she wants on her own, works hard and has so much ambition but is always talking about how men aren’t shit and they are all “wastemen”. I am admittedly one of them and it had me thinking about the society we live in today.

Many people talk about how relationships like our grandparent’s don’t exist anymore, but I don’t think that is the case. I just think less people are willing to deal with someone else’s flaws and mistakes. Many times, people stay in a relationship or marriage because they depend on that person for more than just companionship but also financial support etc. So if you have your own, then there is nothing keeping you in a relationship that has gone sour or with a partner that has gone astray.
