Some bits of Denmark’s capital from my visit in August 2019. Copenhagen is beautiful in every way, and it was made better because I got to enjoy the city with close friends. I would like to go back, and potentially eat a giant cheesecake all by myself alongside thirty sausage rolls. Pretty sure my goodContinue reading “City Snaps: Copenhagen August 2019 (Part i)”
Travelling solo (to a brand new place) has always been daunting for me. It’s not something I’ve wanted to do while growing up, and only found myself in that situation a couple of years back due to a twist of strange events. However, I’ve been hooked since the initial “try-out” if you will. My parentsContinue reading “City Snaps: Oslo August 2019”
Three weeks into my Alaskan trip, I took a break from the research (forced break due to sudden alpine tundra rainfall), and travelled down to Skagway to meet my family (they were doing a tour of Alaska whilst I was slaving away.) On one of the days, we decided to try something completely brand newContinue reading “City Snaps: Gulf of Alaska June 2019 (Part iii)”
These are snaps taken off the marine highway while travelling to and fro, visiting Inuit tribes around the North Slope Borough and the Yukon Koyukuk Area. If I didn’t see these waters myself, I probably wouldn’t believe they were this shade of blue. What a summer! Once again feeling terribly blessed.
A ridiculous encounter during this Alaskan trip. Sometimes I feel like I’m not here for a study /research program, but rather a holiday because all of these unfamiliar experiences. I did retract my statement a couple of times, but what is truly amazing is being able to see how people live and work in completelyContinue reading “City Snaps: Gulf of Alaska June 2019 (Part i)”
High Times by Richard Prince, May 30–August 23, 2019, Gagosian San Francisco Before this, the dead heads and hippie drawings – heart and soul drawings that were too real to talk about. This series was so fun, more psychedelic than the past. I love how varied and unexpected his work always is.
Crashed Brownie’s surfing trip this May on a whim. I never thought that I would be a beach type of person, or a ‘whim’ type of person either, but it turns out that a great book goes well together with lying in the sun. I also tried tanning oil (recommended by Brownie) for the firstContinue reading “City Snaps: Bali May 2019 (Part i)”
It was a brisk and lovely evening. There is more I remember, but I don’t think I want to pen it down. Imagine if authors or poets said that! Ha. Thankfully I do not posses the emotional capacity of a poet, nor the linguistic capability of a writer.
A three ton installation derived from the study of spiders and the intricate structure of their webs. I’m in awe of the design and effort it took to execute something like this on such a large scale. It was thoughtful and future facing, with each installation showcasing a vision and potential of a floating cityContinue reading “Art: In Orbit by Tomás Saraceno”
Recently, I’ve been thinking about an interview I had back in 2014. The interviewer asked me what enticed me about hospitality, and how I felt about the industry. At that time I barely had an acceptable answer (I was 24, utterly useless and caught off guard.) Six years later, I still think back on thatContinue reading “A Memory: Café Henrie”
