Wishes for 2017

Alas! We are here at the end of the year. My, how the year has passed by so quickly (at least for me it did). I remembered last year when moving to Milan was just an idea then, it turned to a reality. Now, I am sitting here reflecting and blown away of how this experience has really […]

For the Cafe Lovers

I’m not shy to admit that I drink coffee. Yes, it fuels me when I need it the most in the wee hours in the morning and it gives me that extra boost when my sugar level drops in the mid-afternoon. Sure. It’s bad for me but, I can’t deny it. I just love coffee.

5 Hours in Mantua, Italy

Last weekend, my friend and I went out of town for the day and spent it in Mantua. About 2 hours and a half away from Milan, we woke up early Saturday morning to catch our train ride only to find ourselves a few seconds short. By golly, we missed our train.

Falling October

I’m so glad this month is over. As you know I moved in to a new apartment at the beginning of this month and it turned out to be a complete nightmare. Even if I tried to make things better, unfortunately, this experience didn’t. Imagine managing between working full-time, accommodating visitors who have planned to see […]

Milan Apartments – Part 3

I’m moving again. Yes, believe it. Saying I have the worst of luck with accommodation in Milan is an understatement. In contrary, there are upsides to the apartment I’m currently staying in.

We Scream for Ice Cream

We know summer is over but, do we really have to stop eating ice cream? Ummm,no. I love ice cream too much to give it up, period! Somehow, all of my best memories always involved ice cream. How can it not? It’s sooo good.

My Favorite Spots in Milan

As I wind down to the last few months I have left in Europe, I realised how much I’ve seen over the year I’ve been living here in Milan. I’m glad I’ve had the chance to share it on this blog because reflecting back to these memories have made me realise how much I’ve seen, done and I […]

Restaurants worth to try in Milan for Guests.

Last weekend my parents came to visit me and I was stressed. Generally, I know what my visitors like or don’t like. My parents, on the other hand, require a certain type of attention. One of those things is finding the right place to eat as both have very particular tastes in food and environment. Before […]

Milan Apartments – Part 2

I moved. The apartment I’ve been living in for a year in Milan was something I found on the internet through a housing agency while I was still in L.A. They were one of the few agencies that offered housing online and I didn’t have much choice because I needed a place before I came to Milan. […]

Milan Fashion Week

What a week it’s been. You’ve probably heard that Milan Fashion Week just ended and my gosh, how crazy it was to see it happening locally. Milan on a normal day is generally quiet. It’s not rowdy like it is in L.A. or remotely close to craziness like Ibiza. But, this week Milan surprised me because the city […]
