Sin City, crisis management & all that base.

That sort of sums up this week spent in Sin City. Bangkok, the city which both fascinates and scares the living crap out of me. A city that never sleeps.

For those of you who aren’t familiar with moon cakes they are pastries with different […]

The road to work

Lingers alongside a greenish river with evidence of lotus flowers having bloomed over summer. The hanging trees are beautifully decorating the side walk as we walk in the mornings. The mornings are ok, not too hot nor too humid & lately, the air in Beijing has been fantastic, along with blue skies and a roaring […]
