It has been a while since my last blog post. Since then, I have completed my graduate studies, moved across the globe, and completed the new website for the Arts Arena (www.artsarena.org). I look forward to taking up blogging again, so stay tuned!

Charity organisation Emmaüs has set-up 10 charity shops called ‘bric-à-bracs’ where you can shoppers ditch their old gear and garments and can pick up new items at low low prices. Proceeds go to the poor. While there are locations all over the city, the first opened at 104, which provides a great setting for bargain [...]

Nerd alert

I have a new obsession: The Hubble Gallery…these pictures are so incredible it’s hard to believe they are real. Granted, they would not be visible to the naked eye…we have science to thank for detecting and converting gamma rays, xrays and whatnot into the spectrum of colors we can observe. And with names like “Mystic [...]

Wishful thinking

Now that is is Spring luxury convertibles seem to be everywhere (Just rubbing it in face!) Ferraris, Bentleys, Alpha Romeos, you name it. But none are quite so appealing as my fav, the Porsche Roadster. That reminds me, my piggy bank is due for a deposit…

horray for STRATFOR

Since I had to cancel my New Yorker subscription, I’ve been hard pressed to find biting, in-depth coverage of world events…until now. STRATFOR’s global team of intelligence professionals combine smarts with powerful analysis based on geopolitics to provide penetrating explanations of news from around the globe. A little pretentious, (the site is aimed “decision-makers and [...]

Les trompe-l’oeil de Chanel

I’ve always been a big fan of fake tattoos (or waking up Saturday morning wondering how a unicorn ended up on my arm!), but now for a mere *cough* 75 dollars, I can wake up with ‘skin art’ bling by Chanel instead! Click here for more info

Hipster evolution

In France, they are called Bobos. In the US, they are known as Hipsters. Thankfully (whatever the term) this subculture has evolved a bit (lovely illustration below), and so Gawker has attempted to come up with a new descriptor. After vetting suggestions from thousands of unemployed contributors (aka hipsters in denial about being hipsters), the [...]
