Will have to finish this post some other time -- I'm fading and my bath is ready. Until next time, Agnes Continue reading

I'm fascinated with everything Japanese right now. The food. The amazing view from our hotel. The doll-like perfection that is Japanese women. The exactness and precision with which everything here is produced. The mannerism. The tidiness. I could go on.... Continue reading

Days are turning into nights & nights into days all very fast. Clean laundry as a general concept has successfully erased itself from my vocabulary by now and I don't even remember what a proper cup of coffee tastes like.... Continue reading

OK, I'm fading -- so this is all for now. Good thing I opted out of room service. Good night everyone. Continue reading

About to board a plane again -- another multiple-leg work trip to Asia, with my good friend Sandra. (We've worked + traveled together on somewhat of a sporadic basis these last couple of years. India would have been our fifth... Continue reading

Fresh air is like a fresh mind. And speaking of fresh air… not a fan of synthetic air fresheners. On top of that I wasn't blessed with a very girly taste in general so most fruity concoctions, even when a... Continue reading

What I like about white the best is the visual simplicity rendered by the illusion that I am surrounded by space rather than walls and objects. In my world, white is best mixed with natural elements that have their own... Continue reading

Don't know if it's a good thing or not but I've hardly been spending any time online lately. Nor have I read a book in ages. Not a conscious choice by any means (though the World Cup didn't help), yet... Continue reading

Never consciously realized what a big part music played in my mundane morning routine till my speakers stopped working about a week ago. Turns out, coffee, shower, make up and Smokey maneuvering between my feet are just not the same... Continue reading

A pretty slow day today -- or “nicely paced” is probably a much more accurate way to describe it. Half out of necessity half due to sheer luck, a perfectly paced day manages to land on my lap every once... Continue reading

The last few days have been a pretty easy load, thank goodness. Finally had time to tie up some lose ends I've been meaning to get to for a while. Even had the time to make it to yoga (twice!)... Continue reading

Checking in to wish everyone a happy Valentine's Day. Hope you have someone good to celebrate it with. Will look for something red to wear today… used to have a red turtleneck, far from romantic looking but there's hope. Love,... Continue reading

My friend Adri reminded me that I have a blog. Alas (or not alas?), as much as I enjoy it, guess I'll just never be the person who can sit still long enough/often enough to properly keep up with regular... Continue reading

At the end of the day I love every color. Guess what I mean is they all have their place. But all my life white has been the color I never tire of. If I had to wear the same... Continue reading

As much as I love most everything about my unfinished place, including the unfinished-feel, the existing floors have some issues, both aesthetically and practically speaking (chief of them being broken tiles). Not sure why but I prefer not to be... Continue reading

Having spent the last couple of days in semi-voluntary home confinement (thanks friends for bringing me food!), determined to finally get rid of the last of this flu, I came to the inevitable and somewhat painful conclusion that my floors... Continue reading

Spent the last 24 hours trying to get rid of this flu for good. Lots of rest (so very overdue), liquids loaded with Vitamin C, sweating (hot baths, sauna & heating pads) and things with eucalyptus are the only things... Continue reading
