Travel
The Road Not Taken

My all-time favorite poem is by Robert Frost, which I named as this blog post title. It revisited me when I came across two diverged roads at Ryōan-ji, leaving me feeling terribly sorry knowing that I can’t travel both; as we had 6 places in our Kyoto itinerary to cover in 1 day. This photo diary is all about ponds of pink lilies, lazy bamboo leaves casting beautiful shadows, and rock […]

5 Cinspirations

Here are 5 Cinspirations that brightened up my Christmas week with sparkle and style. 1. These fairy lights wrapped in rattan cases {for casting shadows resembling birds’ nests, and magic upon my bed} 2. This Christmas gift combo from my aunts {because there’s always something nice about unwrapping gifts after Christmas, reminding you there are 12 festive days, not 1} 3. These Lonely Planet books that flew in to my […]

Christmas 2014

It’s that time of the year again and for quite some time now I’ve been anticipating the most fun part of blogging: curating my Christmas wish list – only to find that the elder I get, the shorter my list becomes. Other than a Rimowa Classic, Diptyque candle and a couple of books on Amazon, I really can’t find anything else to grace my list. Which made me realized that […]

5 Cinspirations

What makes it more special is the involvement of some colleagues whom I often view as people I work with, and nothing else. Some of these also remind me to tie loose connections because life is all about bridging gaps after all. 1. This homemade Spinach and Meatballs Quiche {because it is a […]

The Lost & Found Photo Diary

“It is zero hour”, says the MacBook, as I sit here naked with my face full of sliding makeup and an empty stomach after the 185362489th X’mas event attended this year. X’mas hasn’t even arrived yet. Neither has a good turkey. The cat is purring like she feeds on attention but I can’t feed her any because I need to be fed first. Few minutes ago I was pondering about […]

Food
Classic Christmas Menu

It’s that time of the year again! Christmas is just around the corner and I’m so excited to celebrate with my big family. This year we’re celebrating at my aunt’s instead of throwing one of our own like this. To those who are planning to organize a Christmas dinner this year, here I’ve rounded up a crowd pleasing, classic menu that is definitely a winner. Just click on the respective […]

5 Cinspirations

After attending a Christmas party at the office where I (accidentally, really) filled up my body with more wine than my own blood, I battled the entire Saturday through what felt like a major intoxication. While nothing could fix it within 24 hours, for once I am glad when Sunday finally arrives as I knew I would feel more collected today. These are 5 Cinspirations that are supposed to come by yesterday; […]
