Where are you going?

When I first thought about getting on a plane to Poland the connotations of Poland were slim. I did not know much about Poland, other than that many Polish in recent years have migrated to the UK for work. Never had I considered I would ever go there on my travels –  mainly as like […]

Fetch and Cary and Baby Rupiah head back to Bali. I was having a very bad day two weeks ago, so I thought I should check flight prices to Bali.  I got very excited when I saw flights for $240 each way to Bali.  I got very excited when I saw flights for $240 each […]

After being thrown out of class, Rosalind watches her sister Lucinda host a party from a window and overhears she and her friends gossiping about her…it so happens that Azrael overhears the gossip too. “Ah!” Rosalind gasped, a drop of crimson oozed out of her thumb, […]

Hello Weekend

When we decided to treat ourselves to some sun and sand this month,we didn’t choose Brisas Guardalavaca randomly-we’ve been there a couple times before. But after  a trip to the Dominican Republic 3 years ago that left us with a bad impression, we decided to go back to see if we loved it as much […]

For most people, the mention of ‘economics’ conjures up images of financial analysts in crisp business suits, jargon-filled reports and complex mathematical stuff no layman can understand. Or maybe it’s just me, lol.  If you really think about it though, economics is pervasive in our everyday lives – you just don’t think about it that much. […]

Last June I turned 30 and to be honest, it kinda snuck up on me. You hear your parents and relatives tell you all the time that your twenties just fly by and I’m now inclined to agree with them. I’ve never been someone who is bothered by my age or the ageing process, in […]

I survived the five-day working week! I am not old. I can still do it – well for a week that is, perhaps not long term. Yes, I was tired by the end of the week, but I had taken good care of myself during the week, eating well, exercising and going to bed early, […]

Don't lose hope, because miracles happen everyday.

  ‘Mumbai is my favourite city, but Jaipur definitely gave a tough competition to Mumbai’ First of all, I really wonder why they named it the ‘Pink’ City, there’s nothing pink in this city. The old Jaipur area has orange-ish buildings all alike in colour, and it’s restricted to an older part of the city […]

I lost my phone, hence why I haven;t posted anything for such a long time. I’m using someone else’s computer. It turns out the SD card in my camera is the wrong size for the computer, so I don’t know how to get the photos onto the blog. I’ve had a great couple of weeks. […]

Audaciously Allie

My husband traveled to Costa Rica on December 31, 2015. I had, yet again, kicked him out for going on a bender and then throwing a glass at me one night. The following two weeks he stayed at a friend’s house while we discussed whether we could be together. I thought we couldn’t. He wanted […]

Under the Sun

I am not a foodie. Nevertheless, looking all the variety of dishes (including their tastes and presentation), I cannot help but be reminded that man is not animal. Part of being made in the image of God is man’s ability not only to create delicious and beautiful dishes, but also the ability to distinguish and […]
