Long week, somewhat noncommittal weather… just got home from the airport. Love airports & picking up friends I haven't seen in a while -- I guess catching up is extra special to those of us not on Facebook? Definitely a... Continue »

Caught the afternoon plane to Singapore two days ago to meet up with a couple of dear friends I haven't seen in a while. I am not the kind of person who rings in the new year in any kind... Continue »

Oh Casablanca. So many people told me not to bother, but I had a feeling I would love it. And do I ever. Truth be told, I've loved it for a long long time from afar. Watched the whole movie... Continue »

It's been a busy four days. But Colombian coffee more than makes up for all the sleep that hasn't been high on the priority list... I can always sleep on the plane tomorrow. Continue »

Hello there, it's been like a week since I last posted, and during these days I have been in a baking mood. I really enjoy baking, especially sweet things!

The poster is long gone from the market, but the City Baths remain, and if you go there... Continue »
