A Photowalk in Haji Lane (Singapore)

Greetings from Singapore! I’m back in this beautiful city for a short solo business trip.

Elephant Grounds (Hong Kong)

Last weekend we decided to check out the recently opened Elephant Grounds Cafe in Wanchai.

A Guide to Tokyo Off the Beaten Path

Having lived in Tokyo for 7 years, every time I go back I try to do off the beaten path stuff (I’ve had my fair share of Shinjuku, Shibuya, Harajuku and all that).

Gotta love Tokyo in spring! Tokyo: Off the Beaten Path Guide See Showa Kinen Park…
