Thai Aromatherapy Massage at Thai Odyssey Atria Shopping Gallery

Thai Aromatherapy Massage at Thai Odyssey Atria Shopping Gallery The Atria Shopping Mall or it is called the Atria Shopping Gallery is one of the pioneer shopping malls in Klang Valley. We went there over 20 years ago when my father used to run events in that mall. It was one of the most popular malls in Petaling Jaya back then. With the new shopping malls in the neighbourhood for the past 10 years, it has rebranded itself as neighbourhood mall. There is no cinema in Atria Shopping Gallery due ...

The Ninety Art Galleries of the Stockholm Metro

At first blush, Stockholm was a pleasant place to spend a week. I began in its medieval Old Town, known locally as Gamla Stan, where I visited the Royal Palace and Stortorget, the oldest square in Stockholm. I toured the spectacular City Hall. Built of eight million bricks, this remarkable building is the venue for the Nobel Peace Prizes each year. I toured free museums, ate picnic lunches in the city’s attractive parks, and took boat tours around the 14 islands that make up the city. But i...

Sorry for a long break… I will try to make a little post now and then again, perhaps not quite regularly. My sciatic is obviously declining and I start to be able to do some modest walking again.  Here is a report about the FIAC, Foire Internationale d’Art Contemporain, the yearly Paris International Art Fair, which this year took place last weekend.

An Imperative Guide for Expats Moving to Brazil

It is not without reason that expats who already live in Brazil are often found suggesting that others should not make the same mistake. Its cities, after all, suffer from lack of infrastructure, garbage problems, traffic snarls, pollution, and poverty. In recent times, violence and protests have added to the list. The Welcoming Locals A great thing about Brazil is the friendliness of the local population and most expats rate the attitude of locals toward foreigners positively. Many also add th...

Why the $5.80 Item I Just Ordered on Amazon is a National Problem

Has the USPS created a pricing disaster that destroys smaller US retailers while subsidizing Amazon and Chinese competitors? I just now ordered a $5.80 radio antenna from Amazon.  It is arriving in two days, with free second day shipping, courtesy of my Prime membership.  If I’d ordered another $29.20 worth of stuff, it could have been delivered today, also completely free. We should all be delighted at the convenience and the value of Amazon’s service.  I certainly am, and I buy things on Amaz...

Torikizoku – Popular Yakitori Chain With Yakitori And Beer At Only ¥298 Each

Ask a local where to go for a casual yakitori meal in Tokyo and they would probably point you to Torikizoku. It is arguably one of the biggest yakitori chain in Japan and there are outlets everywhere. It is almost impossible to not locate a Torikizoku in Central Tokyo; just in Shinjuku alone, there are more than 5 outlets. That they see queues every single night at every outlet speaks of their massive popularity and there is every reason to love Torikizoku. It is undisputedly the best name to t...

30 Epic Photos From My Trip to Madagascar

Madagascar. It has an exotic hold over the imagination, conjuring up a land of wild nature: plains of baobab trees, armies of lemurs, unique animals, and lush rainforests. Since so few people visit (roughly 350,000 per year), our imagination runs wild when we hear its name. It’s some otherworldly region, a lush rainforest teeming with wildlife and white sand beaches from end to end. It would be like Avatar. Most people I talked to thought the same. After all, with so few visitors there, the cha...

What You Can do on a Quick Visit to Inuvik, NWT

Inuvik is a small town located on the east channel of the Mackenzie River at the end of the Dempster Highway in the Northwest Territories. While it isn’t exactly a booming tourist destination it’s poised to become one, at least by northern standards. In just 23 days the road to Tuktoyaktuk opens so anyone with an adventurous bone in their body should think about adding this remote part of Canada to their bucketlist. The view of the Mackenzie River just minutes from leaving the airport in Inuvi...

Airbus and Bombardier Trump Boeing

Last week’s announcement that Airbus would bring Bombardier’s C-Series program under its proverbial (and, I suppose, literal) wing was a stunner. When at Boeing’s urging the US Department of Commerce announced a 300 percent countervailing duty (CVD) on any C-Series aircraft sold in the US, it was a major blow to the program. Bombardier was already struggling, and at the time, I feared we might not see the C-Series ever fly for a US airline. I suppose I underestimated Airbus’s willingness to s...

Fall is mushroom time. They sprout up all over the place: in our lawn, on decaying trees, among the grape vines and, mostly, in the woods. I see many different varieties on our walks, some are even edible, although I would never gather my own mushrooms. I'll leave that to the experts. This one is a shaggy ink cap. It sprouted, among others, in the place where I normally see them every fall. A shaggy ink cap before it opens fully. Supposedly, they're edible in their early stages. I've never see...

I Flew Thai Airways Economy (and really liked it!)

I love to fly! There’s nothing that excites me more than having a plane ticket in hand and seeing a jumbo jet ready to take me on my next adventure. That being said, flying and I don’t always get along. Living in Australia, I don’t know the joys of being able to “pop over” to a different country. Save for New Zealand, all of the international flights I take are a usually a minimum of six hours – that’s almost a full workday! While I do try to upgrade myself using frequent flyer points, tha...
