Noble Savages – I Am An Indian

Still recovering from my trip in India, the memories of Indian based acts reminded me of this song from Noble Savages, “I Am An Indian”. The funny thing is, I didn’t know much about the band until I started researching them for this blog post. The duo consists of a brother and sister duo, Shirin […]

Foire De Chatou

We live only a stone throw away from this Antique Fair and have never attended because of poor weather. As we had guests around, we figured it will be a great opportunity to visit together. The 106th edition of Foire De Chatou is running from 8th to 17th March. It is essentially an bi-annually antique […]

Alisha Chinai – Made In India

Being in India for the first time this week was amazing and this Friday’s post is a tribute to a childhood song that I listened to as it received airplay on Channel [V] Asia. I can’t believe I would have listened to this song in primary school without understanding the lyrics other than the English […]

Taj Mahal

I happened to be in Noida for work and couldn’t miss the chance an opportunity to visit the Taj Mahal came up. I never thought I would set foot on this magnificent monument of love and devotion. We started our journey at 6am from Noida to Agra. The journey was fairly comfortable on the highway. […]

Next week I will be in India on a work trip. It will be my first time in Delhi and hopefully we will make our way to visit the Taj Mahal. So, in preparation of my trip, I was trying to revisit my memory bank of India songs that I listened to when I was […]

Mont St Michel

I always wondered what this magnificent place was and I jumped into the opportunity to bring my parents here. Similar to my previous trip to Nantes, Le Mans and Angers, I decided to do a trip to Caen, Mont St Michel and Rouen. Unfortunately, the weather wasn’t great on the last day and we went […]

Black Soil Formed into a Shape of a Heart

Thanks to getting ready for this post, this is the first time I have seen the video. I heard this song on radio occassionally but it really stuck in my head from a compilation CD my daughter bought from a Car Boot Sale. Stooshe are a British girl group from London, consisting of three members […]

Donna Lewis – I Love Your Always Forever

As Valentine’s Day rolls around each year, many of us find ourselves caught in a whirlwind of emotions. For some, it’s a day filled with romantic gestures, heartfelt declarations, and cherished memories. For others, like myself, it’s a day that feels overly commercialized, perhaps even a bit contrived. However, amidst differing perspectives, there’s always room […]

Comprised of members Emmalyn Estrada, Natasha Slayton, Lauren Bennett, and Paula van Oppen, GRL brought a fresh perspective to the pop music scene. With its […]

Mattel Hot Wheels Monster Trucks Live

I have always wanted to watch Monster Trucks live and what a great opportunity when the show was in Paris. We arrived just in time 5 mins before the show began on time at 1130. The La Defense Arena wasn’t 100% full but it was clearly a family affair. In addition to the laser lights […]
