Belated Blogging

Drumroll, please. Ta-da! I present some long-awaited photos from my trip to Cambrige, MA. The bitter cold and Dave’s fierce flu kept me from being too snap happy. Here are a few of the finest from a very tiny selection. Behold Mr. Gehry’s genius on a sunny day. This is the incredible Stata Centre at […]

I’m baaaaack!

The Torontonians are now all thinking of that subway ad with the Levitra/Viagra-poppin’ guy who declares his return in bright red letters. Well, stop it. I’m young and don’t have a penis. No libido problems either. 😛 I’m back in the T-dot after a blissful 10 days in the Boston area with my honey. Love […]

I am the Zen Master

I’m constantly teased by my family for being a spazz. Amazingly, I am good at laughing this off now because I am no longer the spazz of years gone by. Sure, there are times when I pound my pillow before angrily dozing off but such days are thankfully rare. I attribute this newfound ability to […]

Lost and Naked in the City Again

Okay, so I’m not really lost and naked. I am in the city, though! Safe and sound in Singapore doesn’t sound nearly as scintillating. I’m frantically packing for Hong Kong (and obviously blasting the tunes. Naked in the City is one helluva good packing song.) Holy crap. I can’t believe I am leaving Singapore tomorrow! […]

I Will Not Love You Long Time

…but I do love Hanoi. Just a quick hello from the capital of the Socialist Republic of Viet Nam. I have been busy taking in this magical place that I haven’t even had time to scribble all my random thoughts into a paper journal. And believe me, there are so many thoughts and feelings. I […]

Technology, Art, Innovation, People, Environment and Identity

I’m known for my lame-ass titles, but I can’t take credit for this one. Props to the TAIPEI 101 creative team for this winner! They are dead serious about that acronym. They also say that 101 doesn’t just stand for the number of floors of their tacky self-Orientalizing landmark, but it also represents going beyond […]

Snap, Crackle and Pop

You folks sure are quiet these days, eh? Maybe you’ve been having some issues with the universe too. I don’t know. I broke my bottle of D&G Light Blue perfume today. Cracked glass, alcohol vapour and all that jazz. It was tragic. I stood frozen at the sink, staring in disbelief at the smashed bottle […]

Mix Tape

The weather kind of reminds me of Myrtle Beach. It must be mix tape time. The technology has gotten better, but it still takes me as long to put together the right playlist before a trip. You can be more careful about the transitions between songs. The flight to Taipei form Singapore is a helluva […]

No Shingles This Time ‘Round

I am struggling to figure out what to write for this essay. I have to finish it by Tuesday night if I want some breathing room in Taipei, so I’ve got to focus my thoughts a bit better. Sigh. It’ll work out. It always does. At least that is what I am telling myself these […]
