I’m a stress eating candy snatcher if you ask my daughter.

Cause you see if I’m stressed, I’ll eat. I kind of wish I was one of those who “forgot” to eat when they were under stress but no, I’m the opposite. Come to think about it I’m not sure if there’s anytime I would “forget” to eat. I’m a food lover, a dessert lover, a […]

I’ve lost my mojo.

And I can’t seem to find it again. I haven’t written in over a week which is not a good sign. I’ve simply lost my mojo, my inspiration and hence the plot. So I’m looking for inspiration where I can find it, whether it’s at the spring festival at my daughters school…(Come on, it does […]

To friends and foes near or far, wherever in the world you are…

… a very Merry Christmas. ❤️ Truth be told I did not wake up in a Christmas mood. The sun outside and the humidity that hit you when you exited the bedroom this morning in order to see if Santa has swung by the balcony during the night didn’t help. He had though. Swung by […]

Me, my Kenwood and I

I got a present yesterday. My early Christmas gift.. It’s something I’ve wanted since last Christmas when I was standing kneading a dough by hand as my Kitchen Aid couldn’t muster the heavy dough. I got a Kenwood. 😍Hello puppy and welcome to the family. We’ve been longing for you…. or rather I have! We […]

Metallica’s one of my absolute favourite rock bands and they’re coming to town for a concert – apparently first time they visit Beijing!Last time I saw them live was at Stockholm Stadium in 1993..! (Yes, do please start your age guessing game… 😉) Ooh, Lars Ulrich.. I had such a crush […]

Now this is the season….

… for moisturisers, nasal oils and humidifiers galore. This is when stores all across Beijing sell out on anything and everything that can hydrate you in any way possible. It’s winter in Beijing, it’s the beginning of the dry season…  So I’ve stocked up (a girl’s gotta be prepared). Moisturisers, lip balms (en masse), nasal […]

Problems are meant to be solved. Quickly.

You know you have a problem when your daughter shouts from upstairs “Moooom, could you please take a break & come up and make me breakfast? You can go back down later!!” Down meaning the basement where I’ve been opening & unpacking boxes since 7.30am. No, that’s no joke, unfortunately. I’m on the hunt for the […]

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. My relationship with this town would be given an “it’s complicated ” status on Facebook without a doubt.I’ve been here many times. It was our […]

Hutongs, drum show & a Starbucks strangely out of place

We had one goal today, to take Ms Selma on a cultural event, far away from iPad & Shopkins or tsum tsums. It didn’t start off well seeing she started to complain at breakfast already but we were determined. We wanted to take her to the Drum Tower to see the show and believe it […]

All you need is love

Strangely enough that’s the sentence that pop up in my head when I look at this picture. I’m scarred after my 3 years living in Liverpool. 😉I was walking on the opposite side of them, heading in a different direction and I just had to snap it, it was the picture of the day for […]
