So I’ve been drinking almond milk for about a month now, and I spend probably about $11 per week, so that’s about $44 per month on almond milk alone. I bought a bag of raw almonds to see if I could shave off some of the cost. It was about $2.49 per 100g, and I got 514g so that’s about $12.80 that I spent. I … Continue reading Making almond milk

Here’s what’s been going on in the weeks I haven’t posted anything. Decluttering I’ll be the first to admit I’m not great at this aspect and I’m having problems really letting go. Perhaps it’s because I’m saving art supplies for that one day that I will actually get down to crafting something, no matter how ridiculous it might seem now. Perhaps it’s because I was … Continue reading Updates in my life.

I didn’t think I’d start these quite so soon, but I ran out of shampoo and then my toothpaste finished… so it’s time I guess. Here’s my experience with zero Waste diys… Castile soap shampoo I used this in France and it was disastrous, matted and tangled and I didn’t have any access to conditioner till a couple of hotels later. A hair mask greatly … Continue reading Zero Waste experiments

Had an unhealthy lunch of instant noodles with minced pork, some vegetables, fish slices … Continue reading Zero Sugar Project (end?)
So Singapore has slowly started to ramp up its sustainability efforts and of course there are detractors. On the surface their arguments seem to make sense, so I thought I’d attempt to refute their comments here. Mainly because I would like to be further educated on the environmental impact. Straws don’t produce that much waste. So one of the universities in Singapore recently opened a … Continue reading Why refuse straws
Last week of the #nosugar challenge! I’ll most likely round it out to the end of the month, maybe reward myself with a dessert and then continue, I think. Monday, 19 March The lump in throat thing didn’t go away, it was slightly easier to swallow but not really. I also discovered I had a slight fever, so after brushing my teeth and having breakfast, … Continue reading No sugar week 4
It’s Shark Week folks, so disclaimer to all the guys who get squeamish about hearing about periods, this has some mentions of it. Meal prepped lunches this week, so I wasn’t anticipating much trouble… but then I ran into some unexpected consequences… Monday, March 5 Woke up after having a period dream (sorry to any male readers) where you dream that your period has arrived. … Continue reading No sugar week 2
For convenience, I’ll just put this as one week, even though I’m starting on a Wednesday. I’ve discovered most seasonings and spreads have sugar–soy sauce, peanut butter, chilli garlic sauce I’m looking at you. This also means my daily breakfast of whole meal bread and peanut butter should be banned (although it also comes under the “don’t ask your in-laws too many questions” rule) so … Continue reading Week 1: No sugar.
