Kitchen Duty/Glory

I’ve been on a huge cooking kick. The desire to cook is always fuelled by stress. I guess the academic stress is really starting to pile on. Third year law students are just as susceptible to senioritis as undergraduates in their final year of study. I’ve always known that the academic slacking eventually catches up; […]

Awful Offal?

Two posts in a day! So close together! ‘Twas fun telling my consumption tales. Much more fun than complaining about the fact that Dave’s luggage has likely been lost for good thanks to bumbling airline employees dotted all around the world! Ten days worth of his favourite clothes etc. and a borrowed Jack […]

Full Tilt

Many thanks for the heartfelt words of support. ♥
I know that I say this almost everytime but I’ve been extremely busy. There’s a lot on my mind including evil articling applications that are due next Friday. That’s right. I’m applying for jobs that will define my entrance into the legal profession. Jobs that commence over […]

Diversity Is All Inclusive

I’m going to go uncharacteristically un-P.C. tonight. Not that I’m typically politically correct just for the sake of being politically correct, but I generally end up being P.C.* because of my worldview.
Honesty is my usual policy so here it is even if it works against me.
On Thursday night I was the only woman […]

Dead Week or Why the Gyms are Rammed in Early January

So, I’m still a student on vacation and all; but ’tis dead week at the office of Bamboo Star Productions. Sorry.
There are tales to tell, but that would mean that I’d have to put down the good eats for long enough to tell you about how damn delicious it all tastes. And you don’t […]

Holy Japanophile, Batman.

Nigiri sushi dinner set that included so many delicious and delicate extras like a few perfect slabs of maguro sashimi.
One single shiso leaf.
Freeflow green tea.
A few bites of macha tiramisu at TCC.
Cheap and chic (non-Moschino) purchases from Orchard St. outdoor kiosks that could only be described as “cho kawaii!”
The new Namie Amuro album* and a […]

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 […]

Patience, Grasshoppers

The Baron requests an entry on my findings in Borneo. Since he has been an important source of information on all things South East Asian, it is my duty to file a public report on my Sabah adventures as soon as possible.
Unfortunately that is not yet possible. Okay, so it is possible, but it […]
