It’s no secret that Hong Kong is one of the most expensive cities in the world. You can easily spend $100 USD on a meal for two at a trendy restaurant and while I love doing that once in a while, it’s certainly not something I can afford to do on a weekly basis. Having lived in Hong Kong for…

How to be healthy and maintain an ideal weight is one of the most discussed subjects among my group of girlfriends, and it’s a topic that fascinates everyone.

Easy ways to cultivate gratitude every day

Gratitude is an essential part of what makes us human. It’s powerful because it helps you focus on the good rather than the bad; on the present moment rather than the past or the future. It feels like the concept of gratitude has been gaining a lot of attention in the past few years, with many scientific research papers proving that…

Cars of Havana

I’ve never been a big fan of cars…until I went to Havana, Cuba and fell in love with all the colourful, kick-ass vintage cars running around every single corner of the city. From fucsia to yellow to turquoise, these old school cars put a Prius to shame! The owner of this car was looking at us taking pics of his…
