I’ve been buried under a boulder of work and activities and also took up a food design course on design boom. So, my time is divided between that extra hour of sleep or doing homework, a joy which I’ve rediscovered only recently. So nice to be away from the corporate hound madness and to have time to think about your ideas/opinions and how you arrived at it.

So, in the last month, I saw Beyoncé in concert, ate alot, met very interesting people, hiked the great wall in the snow and finally settled into my new home, with the last box unpacked.

Decent Shanghainese fare on the top floor of the Raffles City Shopping Mall at Dongzhimen… I forget the name, but it’s something like Shanghainese Garden that translates completely different from the Chinese name.

Just like in the fairy tales, a blanket of snow over the Great Wall at Mutianyu.
