Delicious Heirlooms

I have something quite exciting to tell you!!! So it appears that I do have a life beyond the office and work! There is nothing more satisfying than to be able to combine my love for writing with my passion for history and food. This is a labour of love which took over 2 years to complete. Make a date with me on Valentine’s Day 14 Feb 2019 when my maiden publication “Delicious Heirlooms - Stories behind Singapore’s oldest family-run restaurants” will be out in all good bookstores. Elated that this is happening in the year Singapore celebrates its bicentennial year of founding! Watch this space for details and updates in the coming weeks!!! Please SHARE this with all your friends who are ‘foodies’ or just love our unique Singaporean food heritage!
