Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in travel, sewing, fitness, and food. Hope you have a nice stay!
BECAUSE APPARENTLY THERE IS LIFE worth living OUTSIDE OF THE CITY
In Tokyo, New York is just out of sight...
Half way around the world and I can feel the magic of New York in Tokyo's Skyline.
Health codes in bars are overrated.
After sharing tasty drinks and snacks with the cutest (and crankiest) Pupper-san at Black Sheep Bar near Shibuya in Tokyo, I've got to say let's get rid of health codes and opt for puppies in bars.
Sao beach in Phu Quoc = heaven on earth.
In Tokyo, save your waistline & eat a whale.
Of all the crazy things I did (too many SoulCycle classes, juice from Liquiteria, a failed attempt at giving up diary) in NY to attempt to be slim I am glad no whales were harmed in the process.
Hot town summer in the city...
Hong Kong in May. So much respect for this older gentleman who is braving the heat.
This week in weddings...
Living in NY, my guilty pleasure was reading the NY Times wedding column on Sundays. Who doesn't love, love? While I don't know this couple's backstory, it was hard not to shed a tear when stumbling upon this lovely Shinto Wedding at Meije Shrine in Tokyo. Similar to the Times, every Sunday you can expect a few dozen love stories to be told here.
Out to sea...
Fisherman in PQ, 'Nam heading out to catch dinner.
The Twin Towers (of KL)...
It is hard to look at these beautiful towers and not think of Lower Manhattan. Sadly, KL and it's lovely towers will never occupy such a special place in my heart.
"Finishing school" paid off...
Stumbling into No Black Tie in KL, I am grateful for the music knowledge my former coworker at EMI shared with me back when I lived in NY. Jazz used to scare me, but now thanks to the "WG Finishing School" I'm the one dragging others in for a drink and some tunes.
Is this real life or am I just dreaming?
Gardens by the Bay in Singapore is one of my favourite places in this city I currently call home. Here's to the future of vertical farming and gardening.
Fievel goes East to Thailand
I found Fievel, the Russian Jewish immigrant mouse, in a Muslim floating village in Thailand. Perhaps we're all more alike than we'd like to admit?
When in Asia..
Abandon all of your coffee snobbery and get into latte art. Next up, a selfie coffee.
Batu Caves, KL
The largest Hindu Shrine outside of India!
Red, White, and Blue...
Hotel in Hong Kong.
