Well, there is the chef wives sorority everywhere in the world. I look to Jennifer at Emulsified Family regularly for informative and supportive posts. Chefs’ wives in Asia keep mostly to themselves and their group of friends, I know a handful, but now to think about it, I am actually close to just one in Macau! […]

We’re shifting gears a little as I catch up on our summer road trip still sorting through photos to get up to date. Our local Burgundy friends took us to a lovely brasserie in Beaune for lunch Bistro du Bord de l’eau. It is also attached to a 1* Michelin gourmet restaurant, and I suppose dinner would […]

The husband planned a surprise week get away in Reims and visits to the champagne houses to celebrate our first anniversary. Les Crayères is an institution and definitely worthy of all the awards and accoloades for its hotel, and the food. I am bummed we didn’t stay here, granted old school grandeur isn’t my taste, but […]

   Well, it’s been about a year since we had our photoshoot in Chateau Villandry, a wedding photography gift from my Mother-in-law. We can no longer fit into our respective wedding outfits – well I can with a squeeze and struggle with the zipper and bulge or two. The horrors! Funny fuzzy feeling looking back and […]

Hello! Sorry for the over a month silence, I have been waiting for news and direction from my web designer and there are still bugs to fix and I am trying to hold my excitement for the launch! AND HERE WE ARE! Lots have been happening, and still happening and I can’t wait to tell […]

Well, you’ve probably read so many variations of what to do outside of casinos, but here’s my take living here as I continue to discover this weird and wonderful place. If you’re travelling as a couple or with children, these could be fun too, although a little more art and culture skewed. 1. Macao Science […]

I have a love-hate relationship with Macau. While this socially shallow place leaves a gaping hole in my soul for the lack of intellectual stimulation in the community, there’s so much rich and deep cultural history in this country shadowed by the glitzy casinos and what’s brighter, bigger and better that’s making the news headlines. Most […]

I was just reading this article today written by a chef, who on his profile says he’s also a writer and marketer which explains why his writing is all PR lingo – unreal and matyr meets pep talk. Feels like PR masquerading as a chef – but that works because it gets the message out! […]

(Picture: gorgeous padi fields in Bali circa 2010) Well, there’s much more to trailing spouse insecurities, alienation and displacement. I’ve been travelling and relocating for work myself before I decided to take the plunge (with very cold feet admittedly!) and give up the life as I knew it to move to Macau over two years […]

We are possibly the shyest photography couple as neither of us like having our photos taken and we only ever do it in a work capacity because it’s good PR from a work point of view and necessary to get ahead. Alas, with a wedding, it gets insane with all eyes on the couple – truth […]
