As you all know, I love to travel and visit beautiful places. However, if there’s one thing that really can kill the experience for me, it’s when a place is overflown with tourists. Unfortunately, this is usually the case in Bali. But don’t be alarmed – we’ve found a solution to the problem: very early mornings. We wanted to visit the Tegalalang Rice Terraces (again), so we decided to get up at 4:50am to try to make it there in time for sunrise, and before all…Continue Reading “How to Visit Tegalalang Rice Terrace Without All The Tourists”

Starting a YouTube Channel

First of all, Happy New Year! I had a lot of New Year’s resolutions this year, as always, but already there seems to be just one I’ll stick to. And that is to start a YouTube channel. Not just that, but I challenge myself to put out 15 videos in 30 days. The reason I’m doing this is that I feel the continuous forced creativity will be amazing training. Second, it will also force me to go out an do cool stuff (let’s face it, no one…Continue Reading “Stepping Out of my Comfort Zone – Starting a YouTube Channel”

Why I Love Basic Tees

If there’s one thing you can’t have enough of, it’s perfectly shaped basic tees. As you might know, I love eccentric prints, but the problem is that those tees can’t be worn too often, as they are too recognisable and hard to match up. With basic tees, you can focus on accessories, bottoms, and shoes/sneakers. Basic tees are like the quiet teammate that lets everyone else shine. It’s all about the shape However, for a basic shirt to make it into my collection, there are a…Continue Reading “Why I Love Perfectly Shaped Mens Basic Tees”

Cruising with Le Pirate Explorer in Flores

For Jen’s birthday, I gave her a 3-day-2-night cruise with the Le Pirate Explorer in Flores. We were both super stoked about it, and headed to Labuan Bajo in Flores on Saturday. When we arrived in Flores, we stayed at Le Pirate’s hotel in Labuan Bajo harbour for the first night. The morning after, we headed out the Explorer 1 boat, where we were to spend the next 3 days.

Woke up really early today and felt like going for a ride. I have a fully customised Honda Tiger 250 (kinda cafe racer style) that I very rarely use, so I decided her and I should go for a little joyride up the coast of Bali. I drove up the west coast, through rice fields along the coastline. The beaches in the West of Bali are black from volcanic sand, making them different from the postcard white beaches, but still cool places to visit. It still baffles…Continue Reading “Cruising Up The Coast of Bali”

If there’s one thing appreciate, it’s when great design is carried out through excellent craftsmanship. I can geek out to a cool hangtag, a label in a t-shirt, or a simple “Thank you”-not in a shipment. When someone has thought of every aspect of the purchasing experience, it gets me going. I love when designer’s visions comes to life in a way that doesn’t just fulfill, but exceeds. A great example of this is NOVUM, a mens jewelry line that takes the word perfection to…Continue Reading “NOVUM Collection | Mens Jewelry With Impressive Craftsmanship”
