Chocolate mallows—inspired by our Sapporo trip

On a recent family trip to Japan, I was amazed at Sapporo's New Chitose Airport in Hokkaido. It's probably the most unique airport I've seen. Part carnival, part shopping mall, it has everything to keep waiting passengers entertained, prodding arriving passengers to spend a few hours there before proceeding to their hotels in the city, and departing ones to arrive there early, so they can have time to enjoy all the facilities before boarding their flights. Imagine a world of chocolates, for instance, which occupies an entire section of the airport. Here, one shop after another sells pastries, ice cream and chocolates, particularly Japan's famous Royce brand. There's also a showc...Keep on reading: Chocolate mallows—inspired by our Sapporo trip.....»»

Headed to Europe? Beware new breed of pickpockets, scammers called ‘hotel rats’

Visitors to Paris beware: scam artists dubbed "hotel rats" by local police have devised another strategy for ripping off hapless tourists. The premise is simple. A network of professional con artists don skirts, suits and ties to try and blend in with the moneyed, well-heeled guests of hotels across the city. The actual acts of thievery vary, however, between swiping baggage while mingling with tourists in hotel lobbies, or booking rooms with fake names and breaking in looking for bags and valuables to steal, reads a report in Le Parisien. And while the most popular target for "hotel rats" is the Golden Triangle, the ritzy 8th arrondissement of the Champs-Elyses, police note...Keep on reading: Headed to Europe?

Pets and the city–guide to pet-friendly malls

Our pugs are well-traveled. They have been to Tagaytay, Baguio, Sagada. They have taken plane rides (on Philippine Airlines), frolicked on the shores of Boracay (where the beach patrol said dogs aren't welcome on White Beach, but looked the other way after learning we flew all the way from Manila), gone island- hopping in Puerto Princesa, and stayed at hotels. When they hit their senior years, though, we knew their plane-ride days must come to an end. Luckily, more and more malls in the metro welcome pets these days.

Loving interior designer extraordinaire Kelly Wearstler

When asked who I often take design cues from, my immediate answer is Kelly Wearstler. By this time, her name is a staple when it comes to interior design, with so many achievements to her belt.

A local of South Carolina, Kelly started her career with an interest in decor via her mother who was an antique dealer. Reportedly, she and her sister would accompany their mother to her shopping trips. These memories stayed with Kelly and eventually resonated with her as she created her own path. She studied architecture and earned a bachelor's degree in interior and graphic design...Keep on reading: Loving interior designer extraordinaire Kelly Wearstler.....»»
