Been delinquent in my blogging due to the fact that we took a few weeks off. First because Nix and I we’re attending our dear friends wedding in Italy and second because I really believe in the power of the pause and boy are we going to be taking full long pause/stop. It’s like a creative break where I don’t think about work too much.... Continue Reading

May for me really signals the start of the summer vacation. I always remember this as when Labor day hits I begin to slow things down a bit and take it easy. Nix and I didn’t really plan anything for the long weekend as we had a really long trip coming in May so when we were invited by our dear friends to come join them on the weekend, we...

On a recent business trip to Davao we were treated to a fabulous dolphin sighting. I was travelling with my friend and colleague Bernice Palanga who I have known since were in the 4th grade. She is an avid diver and as we were headed to our meeting, she spotted a few dolphins. We were travelling with people who are always in the area and in the... Continue Reading

I love sunsets! I equally sunrises but sunsets are easier to catch. I particularly loved these times of the day when on a flight. So when it happens I really am very happy. On the flight back from Tokyo we were treated to a beautiful show of lights. Nix and I had one last sushi meal at the airport. The meal was actually really good and I got a... Continue Reading

One life’s greatest luxuries is the ability to actually just get lost, wander, meander and just soak everything in. Nix and I had really nothings planned on one day of our Tokyo trip and we just wandered about and let things naturally flow. Now if you know me this is actually quite a departure. As I love agendas, scheduled activities,... Continue Reading
BIRDLAND GINZA!

2017

Japan is home to more michelin stars than any other country. The Japanese has this fastidious attention to detail that is dazzling and bewildering at the same time. I have heard of Birdland form friends who have come to visit Tokyo and the restaurant always comes up. Some say it’s good while others are underwhelmed. I for one wanted to give... Continue Reading

En route back to Tokyo from KAMAKURA we saw the YOKOHAMA stop. Nix and I looked at each other and said lets get off. Nix is actually the more spontaneous traveler between the two of us. I like things pre-planned and organised to a fault. However I have learned that there is something about seizing the moment and just doing things off the cuff.... Continue Reading

One of the reasons why I love Japan so much is the fact that it is so easy to get around. They have the most efficient public transportation system in the world. They have even made it even easier for tourists because in the last few years they have added English, Chinese and even Korean in their signages. Because of this visitors can easily...

This is part 2 of my peanut gallery review of the MET GALA and it’s beginning to look like a snooze festival. I mean there were a lot of beautiful women but most of them wore really unremarkable clothes. Do take a look at the images and see if you agree with me or not? Continue Reading
