Joyful and Bright Days Ahead!

Aloha friends and I hope you have all had a wonderful start to 2021! I wasn’t up to the pressure of publishing a new year’s post in January, so I decided to debut the first 2021 post on the blog on the day of the Chinese Lunar Year instead!  I have written about lunar year celebrations on the blog before as well. I like exploring and learning about different regions and cultures, and Chinese traditions and stories have always fascinated me. Last year, I had the chance to be in Singapore around this time, and I was blown away by…

Over this last month, I spent some time switching off from my daily routine to introspect and reflect on the year this has been, and the lessons I have learnt: the importance of family and nature, an attitude of gratitude for all my privileges, a study in resilience, the joy of embracing a slower albeit fuller life and going deep within to understand my true purpose. 2020, you might just have been a blessing in disguise!

And “threading eyebrows” – one of the most dominant facial grooming techniques – was just not up everyone’s alley!

Fall Bucket List, with a Twist!

Hello there! I am making a short diversion from my lockdown series today to wish everyone a happy first day of fall! That’s right. Fall (or Autumn as it’s called in some parts of the world) is finally here, and I am looking forward to cooler weather and shorter days ahead.  I love the in-between seasons of spring and autumn and fall is definitely one of my favorite times of the year. There’s a change in the air, the weather is just about right, and who can forget the festivals around the corner with all their lovely traditions and food! …

Dalgona Coffee For The Win

Hello everyone, are you excited to see what I am covering for the letter D in my lockdown alphabet series? This one should be easy to guess as it is probably the first lockdown trend that hit us in the year and most likely features on everybody’s list! If you guessed Dalgona Coffee, you are right!  Love it or hate it, you just cannot ignore Dalgona Coffee. This was one of the first trends that went viral on social media. And probably also the trend which became most infamous in India, as people across the country pointed out that this…
