Farm to Table

How would you like to have the freshest local produce delivered to you every other week? Well, if you live in Miami now you can.

A coworker of mine introduced me to Farm to Table, offering weekly delivery service of boxes filled with the freshest local produce, right from the farm!

You can order a small box (1 -2 people) for $26, or a large one (3-4 people) for $36. Here’s what comes in the box:

Vegetables – Tomatoes, Peppers, Squash, Zucchini, Lettuce, Cucumbers, Pickles, Eggplant, Spinach, Beets, Broccoli, Cabbage, Chards, Collards, Corn, Onion, Turnip, Radish

Fruits – Avocado, Mango, Strawberries, Grapefruit, Oranges, Watermelon, Papaya, Starfruit

Herbs – Parsley, Dill, Cilantro, Basil, Arugula

Simply awesome.

Sunday Funday

It’s easy to take for granted the fact that the beach is scarcely 15 minutes away.  Last Sunday we organized a beach day with friends (and their kids), and it turned out to be a really nice Miami staycation.

Musical Mondays

{Bon Iver’s Towers}

Last week we bought tickets to see Bon Iver at The Fillmore on June 6, through the Live Nation presale. Not many of the bands we like often make it to Miami so we tend to get really excited when they do!

Our Honeymoon: Singapore

{Singapore Changi Airport – Terminal 1}

Even though 3 months have passed since our honeymoon, I still wanted to share some photos of the trip. I can’t believe we’re already in April!!

We started off with a very long flight from Miami to Singapore. We were in Singapore for the day (before leaving on a cruise) and then returned for one more day on our way back to Miami.

{Marina Bay Sands}

Upon arrival, our first stop was the Marina Bay Sands, where we met up with friends who had been living in Singapore for a while, and who so kindly offered to show us around.

Here we are atop the Marina Bay. Behind us is the surreal infinity pool with the Singapore skyline as a backdrop.  The view is really amazing.

This Louis Vuitton store at the Marina Bay is the largest and most unique I’ve seen. It’s like a museum.

After touring the hotel, we went to see the Merlion, and tried some delicious fruity popsicles at the Merlion Park. We had the grapefruit-passion fruit and the coconut-rambutan.

We also got to see the cool Singapore Elephant Parade around the city.

We walked around Little India and its shops, and then it was lunchtime.

We had lunch at the Rasapura Masters and all the dishes we tried were delicious. My favorite was the very traditional “chicken rice”.

While in Singapore, we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to try out the fish spa.  This was quite the experience! It really tickled and for the first 5 minutes I couldn’t control my laughter. It was really hard to stay still.

We returned to Singapore the last day of our trip and we set out to explore Orchard Road, famous for its shops. We had an amazing early dinner at NUOC, a Thai restaurant atop the Orchard Central. The spring rolls were to die for, and we tried Australian beef for the first time!
