Homemade Sushi

Yesterday we spent the day making sushi with my best friend (who also happens to be my sister in low) and her family. Well, I was just rooting them on so to speak and taking pictures ;P :) It was fun to learn from Peter and Timea since they had done this before. We made way too much for us to eat in one night, but it was yummy and lots of fun! 

Wish you all a very nice sunday afternoon a great week ahed! XOXO Nicky

Contemporary Oriental Lounge

This flat TV cabinet really sets the tone the feel that I want to create in our home. This practically style doesn’t have a name yet as far as I know. It is very close too Asian Fusion and/or a style called ”Casbah Moderna” but less bohemian and a bit more minimalistic chic like a contemporary boutique hotel. The style I’m going for is masculine, ethnic with sculptural elements. The colors are earthy like gray, beige, black and white with a lot of silver. The furniture are low with a lounge feel. The prints are abstract and graphic and the style also includes oriental elements. 

I think “Contemporary Oriental Lounge” dose describe this style quite good but it is too long :) Give me your thoughts on the subject I would love to know what you think!

Open-Toe Season

Yesterday my cousin who is a licensed medical pedicure technician was here and gave me a beautiful pedicure. Such a treat to have it done in the comfort of my own home, listening to lounge music, drinking G&T…only me though. Wouldn’t want her being tipsy while handling sharp scalpels :D Anyway it was nice to catch up and the I’m loving my pretty feet :) I don’t really have any problems with my feet so I usually go for a regular pedicure, but 2-3 times a year it is nice to have a proper medical pedicure also known as amedicure” which the feet and toenails undergo extensive cleaning. I do recommend everyone to make foot care an ongoing ritual. Make sure that you only visit a licensed pedicure technician who really understands about proper sterilization techniques that needs to be used on the pedicure equipment. If you don’t have the time or budget for professional pampering, you can come pretty close to a salon pedicure with the proper tools and techniques. I hope I gave you some motivation to step up your foot care regimen now when open-toe shoe season in full swing. 

Wish you all a beautiful evening!  XOXO Nicky

Sitting in my kitchen with my cousin eating sushi and reminiscing about Hong Kong and THE best sushi I ever had. If you are in HK and in the mood for Japanese do try Sushi One! The place gets packed during dinner so get there before 7 pm if you don’t want to join the endless queue. Wish I was there right now...even in the queue :D

Address: 23 Ashley Rd., Tsim Sha Tsu

Thoughts Up in the Air

How much does your life weigh? Imagine for a second that you're carrying a backpack. I want you to pack it with all the stuff that you have in your life... you start with the little things. The shelves, the drawers, the knickknacks, then you start adding larger stuff. Clothes, tabletop appliances, lamps, your TV... the backpack should be getting pretty heavy now. You go bigger. Your couch, your car, your home... I want you to stuff it all into that backpack. Now I want you to fill it with people. Start with casual acquaintances, friends of friends, folks around the office... and then you move into the people you trust with your most intimate secrets. Your brothers, your sisters, your children, your parents and finally your husband, your wife, your boyfriend, your girlfriend. You get them into that backpack, feel the weight of that bag. Make no mistake your relationships are the heaviest components in your life. All those negotiations and arguments and secrets, the compromises. The slower we move the faster we die. Make no mistake, moving is living. - From the movie Up in the Air

I’m restless. Already planning my next escape to some new destination. I have this constant hunger for something more, something different, something extraordinary and exiting. Moving is living.
 XOXO Nicky  

Portofino anyone?


Have a lovely sunny summer day! XOXO Nicky
