"Singapore is a country where old and new exist side-by-side.
From walking downtown through the streets lined with gleaming skyscrapers,
to stumbling upon temples that are over a hundred years old,
and to discovering a carefully preserved city block of traditional shop-fronts that date back to colonial days.
It all exists together in harmony and is honored by Singaporeans.
While in Singapore, I walked through Chinatown to visit the Buddha's Tooth Temple.
and I was very lucky to stumble across a fabric market hidden behind the bustling food dealers called Hawker Stalls.
The fabric I chose is a classic Singapore floral batik pattern that perfectly captures the rich cultural heritage of Singapore.”

Season’s greetings to you and your family!
We hope you have a great thyme this season doing your favorite holiday things: from cumin together with your family, to wearing warm and comfy cloves, to chili-ing out and taking some time off to rest. Oh and have fun opening presents too, just remember that “it is always pepper to give than to receive.”
From all of us at Taaluma, we wish you a rose-merry Christmas and a dill-lightful New Year!
