SingPost POP Stations

I recently discovered POPStations here in Singapore while doing a bit of online shopping. A few days ago, the mailman stopped by while I was at work and attempted to deliver an item to me. When he found out that I was not at home, he left me a note with...

Pianos on the High Seas

I've been playing piano and socialising with a group of friends organised by Pianovers over the last several months. We generally meet every Sunday evening and play piano for a few hours. It's been a great way to connect and make new friends. A few weeks...

Bowling at Planet Bowl

I've been bowling as a means of socialising here in Singapore and in the process making new friends. It was time to put a short film together. This is a short film shot as a promotional video for a Bowling group that I play with. The Badminton and Bowling...

Beautiful Sunday

If you're new to Singapore and like live music and concerts, here's something to that will strike your fancy. Singapore has an amazing performing arts precinct at Esplanade - The Theatres by the Bay. Held once a month on a Sunday, they hold a free...

Visiting Melbourne

This is perhaps the hardest travel guide for me to write… not because I don’t know the city well enough, but because I know it so well. At one time, Melbourne was a dream; then it became an aspiration which turned into a reality. Now, even though I don’t...

Masur Dal

Dal is a staple at almost every Indian meal, and there are several varieties of them. Their preparations can vary from the simple to the very elaborate. Masur Dal (red lentils) can be purchased at most grocery stores. Their vivid bright orange...

Koni Dom (Traditional Assamese Egg Curry)

This is poor man’s fare in India, but is comfort food. It is one of the easiest things to put together,  and while it does take a little time to cook, is well worth the wait. Egg Curry (or “Koni Dom” as it is known in Assam) is best served...

Chocolate Rum Raisin and Cherry Cake

This is a very simple recipe for an all time favourite. When choosing fruit, I recommend going with glacé cherries which provide a perfect complement to the dark chocolate chips. This is best served warm with some fresh cold cream, and...

Visiting Japan Part 2: Tokyo

Tokyo is a city that needs no introduction. As a nation, Japan is a country of contrasts and harmony; a technologically advanced nation that is built on centuries of tradition. It is one of the most densely populated nations in the world. In spite of this, it's...

Visiting Japan Part 1: What you need to know

This is the first in a series of articles about travelling to Japan. I had originally planned to write up a single article, but realised very quickly that it was going to become quite large, and that it made sense to break it down into smaller chunks. When I moved to...

A weekend in Kuala Lumpur

Kuala Lumpur is a stone’s throw from Singapore. I’d been planning to check this off my list of Asian destinations. On the weekend of the 7th of January 2017, I had set off on a 24 hour getaway. Kuala Lumpur had not been on the top of my list of destinations. It’s not...

Here's a tip for you if you're flying out of the International Terminal of Chiang Mai Thailand. If you're early for your flight, and need some peace and quiet, some food, a place to chill or maybe get some work done, consider paying for access to the Coral...

In-your-face advertising

Seen at a local supermarket in Kolkata. There's a statistic out there that suggests that the average urban dwelling human is exposed to 5,000 ads per day. Here in Kolkata at a local Indian supermarket, they may have taken that a step further by placing an...

From Kolkata

This is the last day of my trip to Kolkata. I've been visiting my parents and helping them out with a few items that they needed me to step in. I've had to go into central Kolkata a few times, and have had the pleasure of getting caught in traffic in the...
