Meeting Martin Yan

Posted on Mar 28, 2014 in Bing, Great Stuff, Travel

I’m in Jakarta, Indonesia for work. And got to meet the famous chef, Martin Yan at an event. I had the privilege of a small good chat with the man in Cantonese in Bahasa land. I grew up watching his cooking shows with his mantra “If Yan can cook, so can you!” It was a star struck moment for me. #iphonephotos #bloggingontheiphone...

Celebrate With Bubbly

Posted on Mar 19, 2014 in Bing, Great Stuff

I’m trying out a new blogging system. Do it all on my phone. On the move. Snap pics. Process/edit pics. Add watermark. Add fun text. FTP upload. Blog through WordPress app. I’m loving it. My favourite way of seeing the bubbles of a tall glass of champagne. From the top. Life is better with bubbles! #iphonephotos...

Braamfontein Neighbourgoods Market

Posted on Jul 25, 2012 in Bing, Great Stuff, South Africa

I’ve always been curious about this little corner in the inner city of Johannesburg. It’s called Braamfontein and I’ve heard lots of good things about it. The first time we visited it was on my birthday last year, we had gotten into a bad accident. We ended up spending the rest of the day in a garage cleaning up the mess and I had forgotten all about Braamfontein. But last weekend, my friend and I checked it out again. We discovered a gorgeous weekend market that quickly became my favourite market in Johannesburg. It was called the NeighbourGoods Market. If the locals hadn’t pointed it out to us, we would never have found it. It was tucked in a carpark in a building at the corner of Juta and De Beer Streets in the heart of quirky little Braamfontein....

Madame Zingara – Theatre of Dreams

Posted on May 23, 2012 in Bing, Great Stuff, South Africa

When I first heard that Madame Zingara has arrived in Johannesburg, I had rushed to go online to find tickets. Unfortunately by the time I managed to speak with someone, I was informed that the show was already sold out. Damn! But as luck would have it, my friend Paige bought a table for the show and had one more ticket. I grabbed it immediately! The Madame Zingara troupe originated from Cape Town in 2001. They were a restaurant which provided exceptional whimsical performances while serving exquisite food. The establishment was destroyed in a fire in 2006. Encouraged by the love from their patrons, they moved on to become a lavish travelling circus-dinner show. In Johannesburg, the marquee for the theatre was set up in the outdoor space of Montecasino. Everyone arrived on the red carpet, dressed in flamboyant...

Argan Oil

Posted on Feb 27, 2012 in Bing, Great Stuff, Reviews & Advertorials

A few weeks ago, a reader generously sent me some Argan Oil. I wasn’t sure what it was and had never heard of it till then. So I Googled it and it turned out to be some kind of a miracle oil from Morocco. In fact, some websites called it liquid gold. If you’ve never heard of it (like I haven’t earlier), let this be the first place you hear of this amazing oil. In a short few weeks, it has made my cuticles non-existent and has softened the lines around my eyes. I don’t have pictures to show because there’s no way I’m going to put the before ugly pictures of my dry skin and wrinkled eyes for the world to see. I’m not masochistic, I only put nice pictures of myself online so that I don’t puke...
