TRAVEL SMARTER WITH AWAY

It’s been hardly two months since I got back home from Vancouver and I am already thinking about how this trip was different than any other trip we have been on. For starters, I remember every time I would check in to the airport lounge or wait by my gate I would always scurry over to whatever chair was close to the power outlet. Literally! I cannot recall a time when I wasn’t hunting for a power outlet to re-charge my devices. So what made this trip different? For starters, I replaced my usual carry-on with a brand new one that…

GOOGLE HOME MINI

As we all know, I love technology. Being an engineer and an early adopter, I have always been open to trying and investing in new technology. When I lived in Seattle, I was lucky to have a large of number of friends, like me, who worked in the tech sector and loved to experiment with anything new and innovative.

I remember vividly seeing flashes of images and feeling different. Years later, I still get those vivid images of the various notes my nose picked up…

GIRLS WILL BE BOYS

When I first started working in the tech industry, menswear trend was my casual Friday style. I would swap the skirt and heels for a suit and tie. Heck I have photos of me presenting at a Startup Weekend event in slim fitted shirt with a skinny tie. Back then, I would complete look with a pair of chucks. Fast forward a few years later, we see a trend of menswear inspired looks that allow girls to be boys. I found this perfect matchy matchy trouser and blazer combo that’s just right for anyone who wants to explore or add…
