Our tropical adventure is over (for now)

We had a wonderful life in Singapore for a while, onto the next episode. Thanks for watching.

For (mostly mobile) snapshots of our new London life see Fruhstuck on Tumblr and Grapejuice's found collections at Dendrochonology and find out where he is over the next year or so on the Caribou live listings.

Back from 'Bodia

We spent last week in Cambodia, falling in love with the place and the people... More pictures to come soon. In the meantime here is some info on the fantastic NGO we lived and worked with whilst we were there, and a couple of pictures of a temple we visited, a house we helped repair, the view on our commute to work and the family we didn't want to leave....

More Chinese New Year Fun

Uncle Ringos' FunFair yesterday, reminded me of New Brighton with that abandoned amusement arcade vibe. Nobody even manning the bumper cars. We drove past later on in the evening and the stadium was almost full, think people were just waiting until after the sun went down.
We found some serious crowds back in China Town though, which was were they were selling these 'real' dragon fruit plants...

Chinatown Craziness

Had a shuffle around Chinatown this weekend - all the lanterns, Chinese New Year songs and tasty treats, I love New Year time in Singapore!

Crafty Sunday

I made vegan blueberry scones based on a recipe from Babycakes NY - I loved this recipe book everything sugar free and vegan but still really tasty.
Also made a dress following the tutorial from the fantastic VeryPurplePerson. Next one I make will be in all black as I started to wonder this morning if this dress looked more like an old lady nightie....

The 'Library'

When Grapejuice left the house he told me he was going to the library.... I found him here...

The Long Now in San Francisco

One of the highlights of my recent time in California this autumn was a visit to the Long Now foundation.

These are the chimes of the 10,000 year clock; a clock which should be able to keep an accurate time for the next 10,000 years. It should be maintainable with bronze-age technology, possible to determine operational principles of the clock by close inspection and improvable with time. A real example of long term thinking.

ATP New York Sep 2009


Finally getting around to posting pics from our recent trip to North Amerikey. Grapejuice was part of the incredible Caribou Vibration Ensemble playing at ATP festival in New York.
So to the ATP Round Up that corresponds to the images: We stayed in a cabin, watched some bands, dressed as yetis (then got told off for dressing as yetis), admired the venues' decor and spent 10 hours in a van...

For more pictures see the picasa album.
