A Total TaiTai Tale

Tale of a Total TaiTai who was in Beijing & Beyond and is now in Singapore & Surroundings!



Wednesday Wanderings and Wonderings

Sometimes when you walk around aimlessly, you come upon a cute vintage place

Since our founding in the 1920s, Chin Mee Chin has remained a proud family business inspired by the Hainanese spirit. From our early beginnings as a bread delivery business to the iconic coffeeshop for communities around Katong, we’re a living story of tradition preserved with the test of time.

Housed in the very same shophouse where we first started, the space has been lovingly restored with original elements for lasting preservation. As one of the oldest coffeeshops in Singapore, the nostalgic ambience and experience is for all generations to savour. Step into our revamped home and choose between indoor seating for marbled tables on vintage tiles, or our outdoor patio against a backdrop of potted plants and passing cars. Whether you’re here with family or friends, just order your favourite old school pastries, kopi or teh done your-way, and let the feeling of yesterday sink in. (Chin Mee Chin)

The protagonists…. Robin and Batwoman I mean Me 😉

He seems angry here but he loves working with me…. even if I made him signed my chair (like I do with all my projects).



25-May-2022: D-25 before departure

I wanted to document some of my highlights of my 6 years in Singapore and the woodwork workshop at Tombalek was a big part of my time in Singapore.

I originally went because I wanted to go back to working with wood. At the time they were only offering guitar making and I was willing to do it but then a chair workshop was offered and I signed up. I kept on signing up for other workshop: a table, a little bench, another chair and so on.


~~~Just a little FYI So for my last 200 days in Singapore I have decided to reblog, in no special order, a post from the 6 years I will have spent on the Little Red Dot. PS: you will then get 2 posts a day!!~~~
