I left Bali feeling very chilled and excited to see my friends GorgeousNess and Monty in Singapore. Singapore is strict. They have a zero tolerance attitude to crime and something that should not be baulked at. As I touched down they were already by the harbour gearing up for their Christmas party. I grabbed my […]

My Balinese cookery class was just the tonic for my final day. It started in the market where my small and bespoke group – just three of us – learnt about the different spices and foods on sale first. There was a wonderful Canadian woman in her mid 50s and a Swiss/German woman, who took […]

My night out on the tiles ruined me. This year has been a rather sober one and I have clearly lost my capacity to bounce back from hangovers. The morning after started sloooow and the day did not really improve until my first drink in the evening. I’m in the beautiful, hip and cool town […]

Bali – fat Russians and a pink wig

The Northerner described Kuta to me as “Satan’s armpit”. I’m here with Scrat and it really isn’t that bad. Probably because it is off season. We’ve spent two days enjoying the sun, scoffing great grub, street food from the night market as well as visiting a spit-and-saw-dust joint with some of the best seafood I’ve […]
