Food & Travel: Giando in Hong Kong

Yes, I am back in the city that makes everyone feel unproductive enough, Hong Kong! Hahaha, it’s true– every single time that I am in Hong Kong, I feel like I have to rush, rush, rush. Everyone seems to be rushing to go somewhere. It came to a point when even I found myself running...

Travelog Singapore: S.E.A. Aquarium

Singapore is definitely one of the best places to take children, because it’s a very child- friendly city. One of the cities best attractions for children is the S.E.A. Aquarium which happens to be the world’s largest oceanarium! In the past, I’ve been fortunate to have visited several beautiful oceanariums from different parts of the...

Travelog Singapore: Park Royal on Pickering

Singapore Tourism Board has so kindly put me on this beautiful, eco- friendly new hotel on Upper Pickering Road called Park Royal. This is  a very new hotel and apparently just opened this January. I had honestly never heard of it– and was very impressed when I got a glimpse of the hotel. It looked...

Travelog Singapore: First Stop, Violet Oon’s Kitchen

It was an honor for me to have been invited by the Singapore Tourism Board to visit the Lion City. And while it is not my first time to visit this beautiful city, the activities the STB had lined up for me are all things that I have never done or places I have never...

Ciao from Italia!

Ciao from Milano! In one more day, the Spring Summer 2014 shows will begin. Yesterday after settling into my apartment for the week, I went with good friends around a few cities within hours from Milan. Call it a short R&R before the hectic fashion week where we won’t be getting any more than 4...

Travelog: The Orchard, Beijing

Located in Shunyi (on Hegezhuang Village, Cuigezehuang Township) just on the outskirts of the cosmopolitan part of Beijing, The Orchard is something of a revelation– at least to me. I’ve had an entirely different perception of Beijing as a city and was not under the impression that a gem of an apple orchard (which reminded...

Beijing: Jay Ahr at Work

In Beijing, I not only got to see some beautiful sights (which I shall write about in the upcoming days), but I was also given the privilege to visit designer Jonathan Riss’ atelier– where all his embroidery magic happens. Jonathan’s work not only entailed fashion but also works of art revolving around animal armour– embroidered...

Beijing and the Opposite House

Four and a half hours of sleeping soundly on the plane got me off to a good start here in Beijing. Hats off to my dear friend Jonathan who had taken great lengths to ensure that I was not going to “drown” in the enormity of the Beijing airport. He was absolutely on the mark...

Amanpulo at Sunset

I’m in Amanpulo (Palawan, Philippines) and I was able to capture quite possibly the most beautiful sunsets I’ve ever seen and I cannot not share these with you. I will write a bag post in a bit, but these sunset photos just can’t wait!! Enjoy the sky porn More Amanpulo photos are on my Instagram...

All About Personal Care

I am so delighted to have been invited to Unilever’s Personal Care (PC) Summit, held at the breathtaking El Nido resort in Pangulasian Island. It is really good to be back in beach paradise after a nasty bout of asthma the day before. Fresh air always helps heaps   I have been enlightened from yesterday’s...

Travelog: My Beef with Kobe, then Nara

Not literally because I don’t really have any beef with Kobe– although it must be said that Kobe is really known for beef! But there are many more things about Kobe that I love so let me already enumerate them through images. Our first stop was at the Hakutsuru Sake factory.   They had this...
