Style | Simplified

Hi Readers! How you guys doing? This is just a quick mid-week style post to say hi and show off an outfit that I felt suuuuper comfortable in this weekend past. I usually wear shorts or dresses I’ve noticed but fell in love with this burnt orange casual number when I saw it. What a cute and easy way to look feminine by pairing it with a chiffon top and trΓ¨s chic espadrilles! I’m off again to Malaysia next week so do follow along on my Snapchat & Instagram (simplysiyaam)…

Travel | Hong Kong Part1

Hello Readers! Just two weeks ago, I returned from the most incredible vacation in Hong Kong! It was my first time to the island which is just a 4 hour flight away from Singapore. I had heard and read many good things about HK from friends and other travel blogs, and the city certainly ended up exceeding my expectations. We flew with budget airline, Scoot, and landed in Hong Kong in the early morning of Eid-ul-Fitr. Since we wouldn’t be spending Eid with our nearest and dearest, we decided to…

Style | Lilytopia

Gardens by the Bay is one of my favourite places in Singapore. A ‘garden within a city’ is the perfect definition to describe this landmark. Aside from its beautiful and lush greenery, it further captures the essence of Singapore as a premier tropical garden city with the perfect environment to both live and work in. One of my favourite indoor features is the Flower Dome Conservatory – the largest greenhouse in the World. It is truly a world of perpetual spring, with the temperature range kept at a pleasurable 23-25…

Travel | Sutherland, South Africa

I can’t believe it’s taken me 33 years to make my way to the little town of Sutherland in my own home country! I’m embarrassed – ashamed even, to admit that I had no idea we housed Southern Africa’s Largest Telescope. Been living under a meteor right? I’m so glad my family & I decided to take a road trip down there and explore what the observatory had to offer. I was interested to learn that the headquarters of the South African Astronomical Observatory is actually situated in Observatory, Cape…

Travel | Sri Lanka Tea Adventure

Sri Lanka! I can honestly say I never ever thought I would visit this country. Although it held a certain allure, it would be a fib to tell you that it was at the top of or even on my bucket list for that matter. The decision came about after perusing a map of southeast asia for my next destination, and then deciding that it would be a pleasant change to fly a little bit further and see something a little bit new. I’ve had numerous resort type beach holiday…

Hello Readers! I’ve just recently returned from an incredible adventure in Sri Lanka and am now back in my home country, South Africa, for two weeks before returning to Singapore. It has been an fantastic couple of weeks with my sister visiting me, taking a quick trip to Malaysia and then the past week in Colombo and Kandy.

Style | The Next Episode

This next month ahead sees some exciting things coming up. My sister and her husband arrive in Singapore tomorrow – all the way from Cape Town, South Africa and something I feel like I’ve been waiting in anticipation for forever! That’s pretty much how it goes when you’re living abroad… Of course I speak to or chat to my family everyday, but having someone over on holiday is just super thrilling! It’s awesome showing them around the country but more specifically, it’s extra special to share your new life with…
