This was the first Carl Milles sculpture I saw outside the Concert Hall (Konserthuset) with its serious brutalist uniform architecture style peppered with classical corinthian columns. Scandinavian architecture is interesting in its mish-mash of styles and the evolution of their own aesthetics and sensibilities. I don’t know much about sculptures and never had much appreciation for […]

I have fallen behind a photo a day, but ever grateful for the opportunities to keep discovering and keep travelling. Given my shoulder chronic pain, I have also not been lugging my DSLR out everyday. Actually somedays, I don’t leave the house. That needs to change and I have to get back into some semblance […]

It’s where they serve breakfast every morning too. As for the food, it’s definitely on our go to. Brasserie for simple quick fare and the Michelin restaurant […]

Colombey-les-Deux-Eglises is where General Charles de Gaulle is buried and on our roadtrip we stopped by to visit friends two summers ago. Chef Jean-Baptise’s one Michelin starred restaurant was closed that day, so we dined at his dad’s brasserie La Table du General instead (incidentally also on the top 10 restaurants list in the area […]

Come here for a lovely lunch or shop for luxe groceries – caviar, salmon cured in various ways. We love the beetroot one and the Shadi caviar farmed in China is amazing. A great spot to pick up gifts for your gourmand friends as well. Their caviar is the choice of Mr Robuchon – as […]

I went in search of culinary history nuggets in Amsterdam and the heady influence of Indonesian cuisine is strong. Given that Indonesia as a Dutch colony, it was a goldmine for trade in spices, particularly nutmeg that was worth its weight in gold. Sari Citra means “authenticity” in Bahasa Indonesia and it was refreshing to walk in here […]
