Hanoi impression


I was born here. Is it why I love Hanoi so much? I don’t know. But the truth is: there is something special about this old Vietnamese capital that makes you feel special when you here. You start to think about the past, about history. You start to look closer at old house facades, the way people walk at sip their coffee on the street pavements. As for me, I felt this familiarity as if I knew this place for centuries. Or it is simply because things have been here for centuries? I thought I was somehow in a dream. A good one.

Everyday #heritage


I love going to my work, it’s located in the area of Chinatown in Singapore, with old and colourful shophouses. I’ve been knowing this area for a while but never felt bored of these beautiful houses. There’s always something to discover, as if you see something new. Perpetually.

Boracay in low season.


It’s our first time in the Philippines and we’re just amazed by the beautiful landscape here. Seems like all the predictions we heard came true: “You’ll see, it’s the best beach in South East Asia!”, “Philippines people are naturally the friendliest!”, “You’ll love the snorkeling spots!” etc.

Although July is considered as a low-season month, we still got to enjoy the turquoise, crystal clear water, the blue sky with its breathtaking clouds constellation, the underwater world that I knew only from TVs. No matter how long you stay in Boracay, I would highly recommend an island round-trip with the traditional sailing boat ( Paraw sails)! You’ll see: it’s a wonderful island, a precious piece of nature that needs to be protected!

Blue lotus

Lotus blue dry WEB

I love flowers, of all kind. And there is something about dry flowers that I can’t help but just being addicted with. This Sunday, the lotus that I put to dry one week ago just turned blue. Exactly like I wanted. They make a great decor for our interior, don’t you agree?

Design inspiration for today: wooden spoons that I could snatch from Sadec District . Don’t know yet if I will ever use them, they’re too cute! Do you also share the love for ceramics and small little things? Come down to Sadec District in Saigon to discover, or simply to get inspired!

NOOK – Moonlight dinner in a rice field & more.

Nook 4 feature
Nook Smoothie Bowl

Moonlight dinner in a rice field. Does this speak to you? If yes, then you should consider NOOK, because this restaurant has everything to become your favourite spot for comfort food with an amazing view in Bali Seminyak. The cosy place is surrounded by the beautiful rice fields near Umalas. Lush green, quiet, peaceful and serene is how you can describe the setting.
It happens that we love to come here not for dinner, but at any time of the day and at any occasion whenever we are in Seminyak. Be it for brunch, for a drink or dinner, the team of NOOK always treated us well with many of their home-made dishes. The menu combines typical Asian and Western delights. I highly recommend eggs benedict or Avocado sandwich for breakfast, beef rendang for lunch and for dinner, you have to try their BBQ dishes! For vegetarians: NOOK just recently introduced a few delicacies with fried tofu and grilled veggie. (Yum!)
