We’ve been enjoying courtship since 12th May 2011, were engaged on 10th November 2011 and tied the knot on 25th November 2012. 😉 It’s been a lovely journey so far, blessed by God and we pray that we will continue to grow deeper in love with each other, and with Christ at the centre of our marriage!
We are a Singaporean couple who is currently living in Brisbane, Australia, as Daniel (D) is pursuing his Bachelor of Commerce at the University of Queensland. While D is at school, Jasmine (J) keeps herself busy by tutoring, babysitting, being a PA, serving at Hillsong, cooking and blogging – “It’s better to be busy than bored!” 😉
Being away from Singapore helps us appreciate her beauty more, and though we miss home, we will make our time in Australia a rewarding one as we savour her charm too. It did take us awhile to get used to life here – shops close early (at 5pm) (and so there aren’t many ‘supper’ places), life is slower (a boon and a bane because things don’t get done as quickly but people take time to listen, people are not rushing around to get things done). And though we miss the Fried Hokkien Mee, char kway teow, Fried Carrot Cake, Lor Mee and all the other Singapore delights, we absolutely love having brunch here! Most places we’ve visited have a lovely ambience, great service, aromatic coffee and delicious food! 😀 Of course, there are some that are terrible but we’ve had more hits than misses. 😉
Our life in Brisbane isn’t all too happening – we go to church, we hit the gym quite often (since there isn’t much shopping to do, plus we have a tight budget, kind of), cook our own meals 4 out of 7 days a week (because it’s pretty expensive to eat out!), chill out at some places once in a while and just have fun with our friends. And so, that’s mainly what our blog will revolve around – God, family, friends, food. 🙂
Finally, both of us are absolute wanderlusts and we are aiming to cover the whole of Australia & New Zealand before we leave in 2016! 😉
