Blogger Meet Up: Liyana of Liyaland

7 Comments

Liyana Meet Up

Liyana of LiyanaLand is a Singaporean book blogger. I met her online when I moved to Singapore about two years ago. We’ve been trying to set up a face to face meeting for a while but our schedules don’t always align. Last Thursday, we finally got to meet when she set up an impromptu dinner. Turns out we both like this Aussie accessories store called Lovisa so we spent some time browsing there before heading off for dinner. We both ended up buying stuff because they were on sale! We decided to have dinner at Fish and Co. and ordered mussels with garlic butter sauce, fried calamari and the New York fish and chips (with parmesan stuffed inside).

The food was yummy and we talked about so many things! Such as reading, book blogging, bookstores, authors jobs, Singaporean culture, the literary scene in Singapore vs. Manila, travel, food, hamsters (Liyana has 30 of them), etc. Really anything and everything that popped into our minds. It was a lot of fun to hang out with Liyana because I feel like we have a lot of things in common so we didn’t run out of things to talk about. I’m sorry that I’m not able to provide a detailed recap of all the topics we discussed. We spent several hours together – from browsing in Lovisa, dinner at Fish and Co. and then lining up for frozen yogurt at Llao Llao. It was a lovely way to spend a Thursday evening and we’ve already promised each other that we would do it again soon. Hopefully, we won’t have to wait another two years to see each other again!

  1. What a fun time! And that food looks amazing, like GET IN MAH BELLEH O_O

    Wait, 30 HAMSTERS???!?! How? Lol. How do they not get lost?

    • I wonder if there’s Fish and Co. in the States? It’s owned by the same company as Friday’s. I love their New York fish and chips because of the parmesan inside.

      Hahaha I couldn’t get over the number of hamsters her family has too! I kept saying, “really, 30?!”

  2. That’s so neat! Sounds like a fun afternoon. And that ice cream looks *amazing*.
