Singapore Life #1

I have finally done it! My first post. I have had a lot of help from a certain someone, who organised all of the hosting and listened to me complain when it took me hours just to work out how to put a simple heading in. A massive thank you to him as I couldn’t (and wouldn’t) have done this without him.

I’ve found building and customising the blog template really frustrating. Even simple things like photo sizes have left me stumped. So bear with me, and be patient if everything doesn’t look great. I’m slowly getting the hang of it and I will continue to hone and adapt over time. More functionality will be added once the posts start building up, including an email subscription service, so you can be notified via email once I have made a post.

I was having a lot of fun learning how to use a DSLR and I even started to take some good photos. Then, to add to my frustration with how this is all looking, the camera broke. So for now, I’m relying on camera phone photos.

This first post will be a ‘Singapore Life’ post. I plan to mainly post recipes but will also do a post like this once a week and some other things from time to time.

I’m hoping for friends and family to contribute some recipes of their own. You know who you are, so start cooking and photographing!


 A mosque in Geylang, near where we stayed when we first arrived . Those dark clouds rained buckets about 10 minutes later.



Rambutan for sale in Geylang.



Pot plants and power boxes on a lorong in Geylang.



The best green mango salad I have ever had. It’s from the Vietnamese stand in Food Opera @ ION Orchard. When I order, he always asks if I want it spicy. Yes…yes I do want it spicy.



Walking back home from the train station. I love the way the train lines merge.



Yes. I colour coded my books.



There is a place near us that makes delicious Indian food. This is Rose Limau, rosewater with lime juice, and is my drink of choice from there.



Poo! Nuff said.

Hi! I’m Taryn. The Wooden Spoons is a food blog and collection of wooden spoons, recipes and stories. I’m a Canberra fan-girl with a passion for all things food. I love South East Asian food, fusion food done well and slow cooked anything. I don’t get quinoa, have a mild phobia of milk touching my skin and custard from a package freaks me out. Thanks for joining me on my cooking and food adventures.

    Keep up the good work, and I’ll organise some of my dishes. This is exciting, now you have to link your youtube channel as well.
