Shoe Maker: The Untold Story of Reebok

Farewell To My Neighbours

I have started to let my neighbours know that we will be vacating the place in roughly a weeks time. Messages of congratulations poured in. It was such a shame that I didn’t spend more time to get to know everyone on my road rather than the occassional hi and goodbye with small talks. I […]

Change Is Good

Your life does not get better by chance, it gets better by change

With the upcoming move, things are getting pretty hectic. I am thankful that my job has allowed me to relocate to a different country and is supporting me in a lot of ways. Lots of gratitude to my colleagues and bosses. There are a lot of things to balance and we are trying to keep […]


Sorry for the grim title. One thing that is certain in life is death. So, it is sad to hear one of the artists that I listened to when I was young has passed away. It came up as breaking news when I was in the kitchen preparing lunch. Sorry for the grim post but […]
