I went on a blog hiatus and that’s because I’ve been away for a few weeks. Mathew & I just got back from our honeymoon/vacation in Spain. We visited Barcelona and a much smaller town on the ‘countryside’ called Sitges. It was beautiful! This is a quick post to share a few pics from the holiday.
I normally log around with my massive not-so-portable DSLR Canon Camera. But it gets tiring carrying a huge camera and lens around especially when you just want to have fun.

I’m a stern believer in black don’t crack, black don’t sunburn, all that stuff. But like hell we do! Five days of hard core sunshine and sea breeze and I’m tan as a loafer. Loving it!
We arrived pretty early on the first day so I hit the streets as soon as I’d put away my luggage. I was …
‘I have this great idea that no one has come up with yet. Create a swimwear that would (not only preserve my dignity but) preserve my cultural heritage and showcase my rich and colourful background…’ This has been a recurring train of thought on my mind until alas, some talented designer not only read my mind and stole my ideas, but they executed it pretty perfect as well.
