    This is the five-port 10.6A USB charger I use when I travel. It saves me from a lot of headaches when the hotel room has only ONE power point. But thankfully the hotel we were staying in in Paris had more power points. We didn't stay in Paris for long, just one night. We drove off to Caen after one day here. We will be back after we finish our road trip. It's our final leg. We had to rent two 7-seater MPVs to carry 11 of us and or liggage. Thankfully they came with GPS built in so we didn't need to pay for that. We did add an €11-a-day Hertz mifi router with unlimited 4G internet, one for…

Still, I am rather pleased with how efficiently we managed to pack. My clothes are in the Aeronaut 30 (weight: 6kg, about 13 lbs). This includes all the jackets and sweater consisting of Icebreaker merino wool stuff, Uniqlo down jacket and a Columbia softshell. My camera gear and iPad Air are in the Co-Pilot.

  • [Movie Review] DreamWorks’ Penguins of Madagascar (3D) | Alvinology
    22 Nov 2014 | 8:03 am
    Is there anyone in this world who can hate penguins? They walk funny and looks super cute in black and white. They have wings, but cannot fly. Instead, they glide on their tummies and swim with agility in the water. After DreamWorks spun off Puss in Boot from the Shrek animated film series, it is only natural for the Penguins in the Madagascar film series to have their own film. Like I said, who can hate penguins? Films featuring penguins in them do not flop at the box-office. Enter Dreamworks’ Penguins of Madagascar . Well, the four penguins in Penguins of Madagascar are not exactly the…

    It is no secret that relationships are a lot of work. Once you have found a person that you want to spend time with for the long term, keeping the relationship exciting can almost seem like a full-time job. This is especially true when it comes to those more intimate times. Life Gets in the Way The responsibilities of life can often make your sex life dissolve so that the entire act – from foreplay to completion – seems almost like it is running automatically. When you factor in time away from home for work and school, as well as responsibilities at home, such as kids, there might…

I can handle Euros better as I am using them everyday, whereas US Dollars used to be a bit of an enigma to me and I was constantly using my currency converter! You can still see the listings in your currency if you have chosen that option (at the bottom of each page you can select your country, language and currency – a fact I have only just found out after three years!)

    It’s three days to my first ever CrossFit competition. Am I ready? Honestly, I do not know. 2014 has seen quite a number of significant changes in terms of my fitness journey. I left my CrossFit box because firstly, I felt I wasn’t progressing; I was getting fitter with all the metcons, but not in strength, which go against everything CrossFit stood for. Secondly, I was getting too caught up with trying to beat metcon timings in the box that I became obsessed with trying to get better at CrossFit. While I took a break from working out in a community for the past six months, I…

    5 May 2014 | 5:57 am

I decided to publish the interview here instead because I love Stephanie’s fighting spirit and wanted to share it with everyone. Photo taken by Pauline Yong By her own admission, 26-year old Stephanie Liew feels that her path to redemption is about to end, after a poor showing at the 2013 Reebok CrossFit Games Asia Regional. The writing was already on the wall during the 2013 Reebok CrossFit Games Open when…

  • Tips for Staying Healthy On The Road

    21 Nov 2014 | 1:57 am
    I’m right at the start of my three week stay in Bali – and excited to share a food travel tip that’s been working out well for me… This trip is a mix of holiday and work, I have my family and little girls with me, and we rented out a house on Air bnb rather than a hotel to make it feel more like home… if home is completely fabulous. ha! Let’s talk about food When you travel, do you tend to eat more, less or the same? I guess it depends – but because I eat out more often than at home – I find that I’ll indulge a lot more. Look, if it’s a…

  • Take a Peek // Pasture to Plate Workshop

    11 Nov 2014 | 9:31 pm
    I have to admit, hosting this workshop was a bit of a fantasy come true for me – a real River Cottage experience. (don’t laugh at my fantasies – ha!) I live on a tiny island, most of what we eat is imported so being able to connect with the source of our food is hard. I’ve struggled a lot with where I stand on the issue of eating meat – for the environment, for the welfare of the animals and for my health. At the end of the day, it’s a personal choice – but the point is that you make a choice. Our world has become so convenient, we take…
  • A Body Scrub to fit your Mood

    6 Nov 2014 | 11:07 pm
    Of all the homemade products that I make – by far my favorite is the body scrub. Here’s why: it’s one of the easiest to make, and gives the quickest results. Your skin will instantly feel better – and what I’ve found is that if you do it consistently – your skin will stay soft, hydrated and naturally glow. I usually keep it simple – oil and sugar – but sometimes it’s fun to make it a little extra special. I have two ideas for you, depending on your mood: you can make an earthy, warming scrub – or a bright, fresh scrub.
