Terrible thought of the day: “I miss Marchessi and The Wolseley. I cannot stomach another all white weird café no matter how good their viennoiserie and coffee are”. .
Oh well, charming ol’ Portsdown to the rescue! Purrfect when you’re instructed to “dress down” and “no makeup”.. and you think to yourself, “Like I haven’t been throwing on random tiny dresses everyday and barely any makeup”. .
I reckon in the past ten months, I’ve become more Singaporean than I’ve ever been my entire life. For the first time, I went to the Expo (accidentally, I got lost), Simei and Bendemeer. I can also walk from Orchard to Robertson Quay, and generally understand the city terrain better. No matter how @keepcalmandshing connivingly tells me to keep my Kinda Expat Thang intact so she can reap the benefits. But.. the other day, I even ordered zichar (for the first time!) and was understood. 🥳
