Yesterday

“Yesterday” is a fun, happy, feel-good movie, and after the horrid week we’ve all had, this film came as a real tonic. (Our dog died unexpectedly, aged 6 – that’s why we had a lousy week.) Anyway, back to the film. Super fun. Great music – obviously! An absolutely stellar,...

White Magic Adventure Travel. Simply the best in the business

It’s all too easy to complain, isn’t it? We don’t like a restaurant/product/whatever and, quick as a flash, we complain, write a snarky Tripadvisor review, or simply badmouth the company. Good service, however, is a different ballgame altogether. Once the event is over, we always mean to write and say...

ROCKETMAN

Disclosure time. I am card carrying Elton fan. Loved him & his music for years. And I’ve always admired the way he got his life back on track, and has used his fame and fortune to help AIDS research. Plus he’s adopted 2 children. Plus he loves football. What’s not...

How cool is the ASICS Metarun singlet?

Before I start, a disclaimer. I am a running influencer for ASICS in Delhi, India where I live. Having said that, I also need to state for the record that ASICS has put me under NO obligation whatsoever to write about, or review their products. Not once have I been...

The River Art Hotel in Chiang Mai

Pre-review disclosure: we knew of the owners of this delightful hotel, via some official, work stuff in Bangkok. Knew of them, as opposed to know them. We’d never met, never even spoken on the phone. All we knew is that they ran a hotel in Chiang Mai. So when we...

The Nizam of Hyderabad’s jewels on display in New Delhi

Delhi readers, take note! If you haven’t already seen this astounding exhibition at the National Museum, you only have until May 5th to do so. Trust me, it is so fabulous that you will not regret it. I had seen the jewels when they were last exhibited at the Museum...

How is the Fantasia sunset boat trip in Bagan, Myanmar?

Based on enthusiastically favourable reviews online, we decided on the Fantasia boat, to witness the “must see” sunset over the river in Bagan. However, since we were totally underwhelmed by the whole experience, it seems only fair that I put a dissenting view on record. I’d hate future travellers to...

Follow-up review of the ASICS DynaFlyte 3

5 weeks ago, I posted my first review of the ASICS DynaFlyte 3, and since we have now completed another 100km together, I thought a quick follow-up review might be in order. As I stated in my first review, I am a recently appointed ASICS Running Influencer in India, where...

First impressions of the ASICS Gel Nimbus 20

Disclosure, before I even start my review I am an ASICS Running Influencer, and, on the advice of my running coach & an excellent ASICS store manager, I chose the new Gel Nimbus 20, in which to run and train. A couple of weeks earlier, I had bought the DynaFlyte3 &...

How good are the ASICS DynaFlyte 3?

Disclosure, before I even start my review I have recently been named an ASICS Running Influencer, and, on the advice of my running coach, I chose the new DynaFlyte 3, in which to run and train. ASICS has, however, placed me under no obligation whatsoever to write a review, favourable or...
