I’ll be posting…

I’ll still post some things here…probably random stuff I like as far as visual inspiration goes, like most Tumblrs are.  I guess I was hoping to make this more into a blog but it really doesn’t feel like one!  But do read my old/new blog:  HybiscusKiss

I'm moving...back to Blogger! ⇢

I know, I’m fickle.  But while Tumblr has been a fun affair, I’m missing the homey-ness of Blogger. If you started following me, thank you!  Please feel free to check me out at:


I couldn’t export my posts over, but I’ll be posting all the same. =)

Sentosa Weekend

This past weekend has been a great highlight for me…a couple visiting friends made it memorable and I’m sad that the girls are already gone!  

I also visited Sentosa (the commercialized island resort of Singapore), finally, and wish I could have stayed longer!  It’s quite an ordeal to get there if you’re not taking taxi…but it’s a worth-while change from the usual city.  Despite the coarse sand and my reluctance to go into those import/export waters, it was still wonderful to walk on a beach, see people playing volleyball and lay out with a few girl friends.  As with many things, it looked even better at night.  Many of the bars have pools, so you dont have to go into the ocean if you want to cool off, which is a nice touch, I think.  

I actually went to the new KM8, which was a fun beach bar I used to go to when I was studying abroad 4 years ago.  It’s now been completely redone and renamed as Tanjong Beach Club.  It’s beautiful, but definitely lost its old charm as being that low-key, fun, party beach bar.  


Hi!  My name is Kristen. I have the travel bug and I got it bad.  I take my food seriously and in copious amounts.  I also appreciate a new pair of socks, visual inspiration, puns and alliteration.
