A week in Washington


I got back last Friday from a week away in Washington and I fell in love with the place.  I was there for work so didn't have too much time to get out and about.  I did land on a Sunday though so had that day to myself to sightsee which was lovely. It's such a great city!


I just walked and walked and walked... One of highlights was chancing upon the White House Spring Garden Tour by complete accident. The timing was perfect as they only open the gardens for two weekends a year so I was able to go in and have a closer look.  I didn't have time to see too much of the city but I loved walking through Georgetown and the National Mall and it was such beautiful Spring weather.  It's definitely a city to revisit.




One of the best things about being in the US was the food.  I love bagels and they are so hard to find in Singapore so I took advantage and had a bagel with cream cheese every morning.  I also spent ages in Whole Foods :)

Some other restaurant/cafe tips from my short week:

I didn't get there this time but a friend also recommended Le Diplomate (great French bistro style), Fiola (for awesome Italian) and Eater (38 essential Washington restaurants) for more foodie options.

dealing with toxic people...

This blog is my little outlet, a fun happy creative place for me.  I have always tried to keep the blog positive and keep the negative out of it, but unfortunately I am already struggling to meet my new year goals which I only listed down days ago.

My goal to try and not stress out about things I can't fix is not going too well.  Sometimes you encounter some toxic  / negative people in your life and currently I am struggling a little on how to best deal with it.

I went to my trusty Google and typed "how to deal with toxic people" and I found this helpful post.  I hope it helps you too when you are dealing with some difficult people.   I have extracted below what I found helpful, which will hopefully get me back on track!
Avoid toxic people. In some cases it may not be an option (ie work!), but more often than not, it is. It is also common to believe you can get a toxic person to change while interacting with them. You will not get them to change and trying it simply is…

Unfortunately Singapore has a bit of a lacklustre reputation for being boring, sterile, uncultured... especially in comparison to other Asian developed cities like Hong Kong + Tokyo.  Yes it is true that the vibe here is different to those other cities, but I think Singapore is definitely coming into its own and a lot has changed (even in the 3 years I have lived here).
