How Cancelling Grab Car Booking During the Ride Could Risk Your Life

We usually take the Grab Car to go to the airport or while traveling in ASEAN countries such as Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam and Laos. In one of our rides from the airport back to our home last year, the Grab driver requested me to cancel my Grab Car booking so he doesn’t need to pay the commission back to Grab.

The Airbus A380 : RIP

An Emirates A380 flies off into the sunset. Literally, and now figuratively too. Airbus surprised no-one, but saddened many, with its announcement on Thursday this week that it was ending the A380 program.  It would build 17 more planes (14 for Emirates and 3 for ANA) and then cease production some time in 2021.  In total, it is probable they will end up producing 251 planes, a sad contrast to their projected total sales that were in the order of hoping for variously somewhere between 700 and 12...

Onion rings à la mozzarella et mozza sticks

Je dois vous avouer que je suis complètement fan de finger food. Onion rings, mozzarella sticks, croquettes... tout ce qui est pané, frit et qui se mange avec les doigts, est le genre de nourriture que je pourrais engloutir en un rien de temps ! En fait, en y réfléchissant bien, tout ce qui est frit me fait secrètement fantasmer. Vous voyez ce genre de vidéos de cuisine virales sur Internet où l'on voit des personnes en ...

Best wine bars in New York City

New York City is full of dive bars with happy hours, beer and shot specials, and well drinks galore. But sometimes, you just want to have a nice glass of wine and drink it in an establishment that will have more than the house chardonnay. While atmosphere is key, people assume all wine bars are pretentious and expensive, and they’re often apprehensive about going inside if they aren’t knowledgeable enough about wine. Yes, New York City can be expensive, as can wine, but there plenty of places...

Super Snow Moon coming to the US

The biggest supermoon of the year is coming next week. On Tuesday, February 19, the Super Snow Moon will be closer to earth than at any other time during the year. While it won’t be quite as dramatic as last month’s red Super Wolf Blood Moon total lunar eclipse (though that’s a pretty tough name to live up to), it does promise to be the biggest and brightest. Supermoons occur any time the moon looks larger than usual due to its closeness to Earth, but the best supermoons, like the one next we...

The Train from Kandy to Ella: Sri Lanka’s Most Spectacular (and Affordable) Train Ride

I felt the sweat begin to form on my palms as I adjusted my grip on the white painted rail, cracked and worn down to the metal with time. My grip adjusted, I leaned out further. A thought flashed across my mind: I haven’t felt this free in a long time… or this scared. I embraced the fear, leaning out just a few inches more; and then a few more. The wind whipped my face; my long hair blinded me, as it blew every which way. I was on the train from Kandy to Ella, considered on of the most scenic...
