Discovering Airfrov

Airfrov.com first caught this bunny's eye when I was researching and prepping for my virgin Japan trip (of course, to see what to shop for) earlier in October. It's a rather new start-up that matches shoppers to travellers to buy and bring back your stuff. The idea certainly isn't new, I'm pretty sure most of us had asked our friends/relatives/colleagues to buy something back when they travel, but this platform helps to expand this circle of "friends" so that you can get that oh-so-elusive item that is not available in Singapore. Yes, you read it right - Airfrov only works for Singapore currently.

Sun Ray Cafe [Pet Friendly]

Continuing on our pet-friendly cafe hopping journey, the bunny discovered Sun Ray Cafe, which incidentally, turned out to be a real gem.

Sun Ray has a dedicated section for poochies and their owners and a separated area just for humans within the compound. The area is also quite spacious, which gives Pixie ample space to roam and make new doggy friends.

Water Kefir

The bunny is going through a water kefir streak.

What's water kefir you may ask?
It's a fermented probiotic drink made from culturing sugar water, juices or coconut water with water kefir grains. Kefir (pronounced kah-fear) means feel good in Turkish. The drink tastes tart and can be fizzy if bottled. You can also add in flavoring to make the water kefir even more palatable.

Water kefir grains are not grains at all. Rather, they are a live culture of good bacteria and yeasts held in a polysaccharide matrix.

Kith Cafe @ Sentosa Cove [Pet Friendly]

It was an afternoon of intense sand digging for puppy Pixie and her best pal, FrozT as we planned a special day out for the doggies. After all the chasing around the beach and washing the sand off the struggling pups, oh boy... the humans were practically starving!

We drove a short distance to Sentosa Cove to fill our tummies at Kith Cafe, which is at the North Cove by the way, if you are as much of a direction klutz as me.

Casa Verde @ Botanic Gardens [Pet Friendly]

After I started working again, I felt kinda guilty towards Pixie, for not spending as much time with her. Hence, I dragged the hubby out of bed on Sunday morning to get to the Botanic Gardens and let Pixie smell the fresh air... and for us to get some breakfast!

Casa Verde, which means "Green House" in Italian, is nestled amidst the greenery at the Botanic Gardens. It is nearer to the Nassim Gate and drivers can park at car park B.

Happenstance Cafe [Pet friendly]

Happenstance Cafe was another location where the bunny, hubby and Pixie visited while cafe hopping. The bunny had heard a lot of good reviews about Happenstance from fellow doggy owners so I was actually quite excited about this little excursion.

CNY Warehouse Sale @ Hosen

Since the bunny is currently jobless, I decided to take mummy for on a trip to Hosen's warehouse sale. The company holds a warehouse sale annually, just before Chinese New Year. They mainly carry canned foods, with brands such as Highway, Fortune and of course, Hosen.

Ah B cafe [Pet friendly]

The hubby and bunny are spending all our time this weekend hopping cafes - pet friendly cafes that is! With Pixie, our little, er.. not so little anymore, Japanese Spitz in tow, Ah B cafe was our destination today.

The place is not too difficult to find and there's ample parking space just outside the cafe. It's also one of the rare pet cafes situated in the west, which is good news for the bunny (petrol is expensive you know)

The interior of the cafe is simple and most of the area is furnished with wooden tables and chairs. However, there's a sofa area available and a raised platform area where humans and pets can jump onto oversized beanbags! First come, first served! Best of all, the place is spacious enough for the furries to run and play.
