Nice - Giuseppe & Peppino for Happy Hour on Place Garibaldi

We have a new spot we stop at on the way home from work when we need a good break between work and our evening. We always used to go to "Le 4" on Place Garibaldi and now it is Giuseppe e Peppino just over the other side of the square. You can find Giuseppe e Peppino on the corner of Place Garibaldi and the Rue Bonaparte / Rue Cassini corner.

There is loads of outside seating, even in winter where they have heaters up and they cover the terrace so we even went in December and January! Now the weather is heating up and the evenings are longer (gosh I love Nice in spring) we can sit out in the open with natural light after work.

Why do we tend to go there now? Well during happy hour (1800 to 2000) the wine is 2 EUR a glass and they are rather decent size glasses (see below) plus the wine is perfectly drinkable. I tend to take the rose, my husband takes the white usually and when our friend D joins us she gets the red so we just can order "one of each please" which entertains us, and we are glad we entertain ourselves 😄

Another reason to go? They make really good homemade chips / fries. So tasty!! 4.50 EUR so not cheap for the size but worth it. And this time we fancied some fried chicken strips which are also I believe made in house and coated with cereal rather than bread crumbs.

It really is a pleasant spot to sit and watch the world go past though if you want to sit inside, it is nice and cozy in there too and you can eat a full meal as well. We just do Happy Hour though in general but I did spend a lovely evening curled up on the comfy chairs inside chatting and catching up with a good friend.

And you don't have to order the chips to get something to eat, the drinks come with popcorn or crisps plus you can order off their tapas menu if you want something more substantial.

Check Giuseppe e Peppino out if you want to chill out with your friends or other half over a value-for-money glass of wine and a snack. :)

First year as an expat in Singapore - lessons learned and tips for newcomers :)

After a year in Singapore, what kind of advice would I give new expats in Singapore or people looking to move here? This is all utterly subjective so don't get annoyed with me if you don't agree, but I would welcome constructive criticism / advice. Especially from people in different situations than me as I am one half of a couple who moved together and work at the same company, with no kids and a mortgage back in Europe.

OCT14 - I have a new post which may also interest you, did a survey of expats and I wrote up my opinion of the results for Singapore here - Expat results for Singapore
JAN15 - Make sure to buy The Entertainer application. More info on that in this post about The Entertainer Singapore.

And what I will miss about Singapore and what I am looking forward to in Nice

Don't worry - you will get used to the heat on the Red Dot. It's 26 degrees at the moment and I fee…

Singapore - Mustafa Centre: aisles and aisles of chocolate

To escape the heat and humidity in Little India, we wandered into the Mustafa Centre. Not the main part but the part along Serangoon Road. It seems to have various things that are in the main bit. And you can connect to the main bit from the 2nd floor I believe. 
Why am I telling you this? Because I, like many other women, am a chocoholic. A mad chocoholic. It is the only sweet thing I can't avoid even though I should really as a diabetic! But the magnesium in it is recommended by a friend's doctor to combat fatigue, so it is actually a health food, right?!?
And Mustafa has a lot.... A LOT.... of chocolate. Of all sorts of chocolates. From all over the place. Just check it out. 
All of these aisles, from here to the other end, are full of chocolate, on both sides! So this long:

And this wide: 

So sit back and check out all the chocolate!

Singapore - Muchachos for rather good Mexican (burritos and quesadillas) on Keong Saik Road

We needed to do some shopping in Chinatown (to be precise - Sia Huat for awesome kitchen stuff!) so I suggested G meet me after my yoga class and we head down to Keong Saik Road and finally try Muchachos! I have heard lots of good things about this American Style Mexican place and was craving some Mexican food, plus had earned the carbs after a class where the instructor actually admitted she was torturing us on purpose! G wasn't too enthused as he isn't such a fan of burritos due to them containing rice, but we now know that Muchachos allows you to customise it entirely so next time G will have a burrito but without rice so we can use our 1 for 1 deal on The Entertainer App.

I went for a pollo asado (Chicken) burrito - yummmmm :) What went in there? Well you can check the "making of the burrito" further down the post but I chose not to have cheese or sour cream and took the guacamole option, so my burrito contained: chicken which was spiced / marinated and grilled,…
