What do you enjoy doing in your free time?

Mr Wee: Gorge on good food. We are picky foodies who do not want to pay exorbitant prices for mediocre food. We like the popiah and Chinese desserts at Berseh Food Centre in Jalan Besar or having our durian fix at roadside stalls in Balestier or Geylang.

Ms Png: We like going to Dinner at 335, a bi-monthly dinner series where people cook together. Stuart was the guest chef in March and we cooked local delights such as prawn noodles and cheng tng. We do picnics to relax too. The last one was at Botanic Gardens in June when the Singapore Lyric Opera performed.

The two of you are hardly apart, even on your days off. Do you ever need time apart?

Ms Png: No, we get cranky when we are separated.

If you could live as someone else for a weekend, who would it be?

Mr Wee: Garfield, the comic strip cat - best life ever.

Ms Png: We were recently in London, working with the people who inspired us to start AndSoForth. I would like to be one of them because they create the coolest pop-up experiences and get to attend cool events.

You mentioned you enjoy travelling. So where are you off to next?

Ms Png: Iceland, so we can see all the pretty Nordic kitties and animals.

Mr Wee: You could call us the crazy auntie and uncle who go around the neighbourhood to play with cats. The glaciers are secondary to our quest of meeting the fluffy animals.

What is a good day off for you?

Mr Wee: When I have nothing to think about and I can do some gaming or watch TV.

Ms Png: Enjoying a good meal. Eateries we like are The Sushi Bar at Far East Plaza, 126 Eating House (Wan Dou Sek) in Geylang and Pasta Brava in Craig Road. Or just eating our favourite kueh from Tiong Bahru Galicier Pastry.
