    Ok, I was exaggerating. I won’t die from the cough. Not yet anyway. But I was in risk of bursting a blood vessel this afternoon. Imagine the frustration of driving around for an hour, wasting time, effort and petrol, and then not achieving anything. And there was that full bladder and...

    How much do you love your company? Would you get a tattoo of your company’s logo or product? Well, the Ad Agency for MINI asked their client that question and here’s their answer. I hope my boss don’t see this video. It’s not that I don’t love my company. I’m just not a tattoo person....

    It is rare to find a hotel that is a destination in her own right. Referring Le Royal Monceau as a hotel would have been an insult to the art world. A creative environment where artists, poets, actors, and musicians once met and exchanged ideas, Le Royal Monceau was the melting pot of...

    Nowadays, our kids probably know more about Mochi than Ang Ku Kueh. When I was a kid, everyone knows about Ang Ku Kueh, especially if you are Hokkien. You know what I am talking about right? That Ang Ku Kueh song that starts with a Monk knocking on an olive: Orh Ni Gu, Kok Ka Nah, (Mo...

    This was an invitation to a food-tasting session. There is no hard and fast rule stating a plus one for a food tasting. However having attended previous food tastings before, I assumed that the meal would be, at the very least, on the house for myself and one dining partner. I was not...
