Homemade Marsala Chai

[Source: Design*Sponge]

One of the best Masala Chai (literally "mixed-spice-tea") I have ever tasted was in Singapore years ago.  On my way to the Philippines for vacation my Mom and I had a stop-over in Singapore for few days. It We went to Little India for sightseeing and stopped by in a small coffee and tea shop for a chai in the afternoon. We ordered some Samosas for a snack and Marsala Chai instead of coffee. Besides the delicious Samosas, that chai we've got in that small shop was perfect. Strong, slightly sweetened and with the right blend of milk. Every time when I have that kind of Masala Chai, every sip brings me to that perfect afternoon with my Mom in Singapore's Little India.

Recipe see below.

1st of November

We already have November 1st and I still can not believe that Christmas is waiting the next corner. Something I hardly can wait for is my next vacation in Los Angeles later this month. It's been a decade since my last US visit. The last 10 years I have travelled Europe and Southeast Asia but now it's time to see my family and Los Angeles again.

Have you ever dreamt about to spent your holiday on a boat? Sailing around the Greece Islands or the Cote d'Azure? I do. This image of a lazy afternoon on a sail boat is exactly how I would spent my sail boat trip in the Mediterranean Sea.

I'm a Moleskine addict and love illustrations. How I wish I could draw like Adolfsson. 

Backlog.

I'm still working on my backlog. I just realized how long was my last post was. Sometimes I've wished my day could have 48 hours to do or simply just to finish things. I'm so ready for another vacation. I miss my home and family in the Philippines. Hopefully by the end of this year, I can finally take off from work for few weeks.

Travel Postcard: Olá Lisboa!

Olá Lisboa!
[Source: flickr]

Sorry my dears for my long absence. I'm so busy at work lately that I have trouble finding time to update my page. But I made it finally today. Our Lisbon vacation last Last June was incredible and restful. There's no other country in Europe that I'm so connected than to Portugal. I call Lisbon as my "soul city" now. Lisbon's nostalgic charm embraced me from the start. This was my second Portugal visit and I know I will go back next year again. More pictures coming soon. For now, enjoy the scenic view from one of my favorite Lisbon viewpoint Miradouro de Graça.

Object of Desire: Acapulco Chair

"The iconic 1950′s Mexican chair oozes both retro and contemporary cool. Found under trees and in lounges throughout Mexico."


The Acapulco Chair is one these iconic design that always reminds me of 50s/60s American movies. Movies played in sunny California. I see Natalie Wood sitting in this chair at a pool in fancy house in Palm Springs. How about you?

She's truly a Supermodel with a great style! I wasn't sure about the new "Tie Dye Style" before, but when I saw Elle Macpherson in this Isabel Marrant jeans, I couldn't help myself than thinking about having a tie dye jeans at this moment. Her style is simply cool.

What are you thinking about the tie dye style.

DIY: Customizable Necklace


[Source:return to me]




Oh Darlings, isn't this customizable necklace adorable?!
Okay, I must admit that since I was a child, I was addicted to DIY things. Be it silk or oil painting, pastel drawing, pottery, sewing etc. My dad always encouraged me in all my creative works as a kid, teenager and adult. I always loved to accompany him when he went to the next hardware store. Hardware stores are my Disneyland! 



Wanted: Seventy Eight Percent

Everyone is talking about Cambridge Satchels for a long time. I still haven't bought myself one because I was looking for an alternate satchel which is more minimalistic. When I got the latest edition of my favorite magazine "Monocle" I found in their special booklet "Creative Hong Kong" (in celebration of Hong Kong Design Year 2012) I fell in love with the bags from Seventy Eight Percent. Israel Shai Levy's brand creates canvas and leather travel bags that is unique, stylish and functional.

Don't you think that Seventy Eight Percent bags are stunner?! It's everything what I want: minimalistic and timeless.
