It was the books. Children, at all cost, should be kept away from books. My formative years were spent cutting out ‘plans’ from the likes of Conde Nast’s Traveller and imagining all sorts of mischief I could get up to in those far away unpronounceable lands. I whiled away time reading the likes of The Swiss Family Robinson and […]
I’m currently in the process of sorting out my laptop. It has so far, been arduous, but it’s not like I have a choice in the matter. Crashing computers and failing uploads don’t exactly help you, when 2/3rds of your work is done virtually. The upside is that I have stumbled upon many draft blog posts […]
I live to try new things. It’s a snobby habit I’ve often tried to kick in the morning, only to pick up again that very same afternoon. I was the teen that brought homemade sushi to college and then, as soon as it’d caught on and became a thing, I ditched it for tacos and […]
“When you want something done properly, do it yourself” Right? Well, the same can be said about Dolmades, a distinctive Mediterranean dish; that I tried for the first time, tried nearly a decade ago. You’ll probably remember me mentioning the fact that I used to work for a Greek company, in Chelsea. As with most things, it […]

A quick and simple recipe on how to make the famous Indonesian health tonic, Jamu.
I’ve been hitting the gym hard for the last couple of days. Now before you think I’ve given up my foodie ways and resigned myself to a life of gluten-free Seitan and sugar free almond milk (both of which are actually quite delicious, if you know what to do with them); I haven’t. Not a […]
A simple guilt free version of a great tasting classic. These spicy baked Buffalo wings are perfect for movie nights in.
I’m baack. Back to Bangkok. What a journey! Japan has just effortlessly made its way to the top of my list. It is my new heaven on earth. We all dream of escaping to some beach side retreat, but even beaches can get boring. Trust me on this one, spending much needed ‘me’ time can quickly […]
We were waiting for a train and I was hungry. I can’t emphasize how important that fact was, because I turn into a psychopath when I am hungry. Its irrational, I know, but I have always been afraid that one day (through my own negligence or some fluke of a missed meal), I’d starve to death. […]
