The reluctant mother

New piece up and am glad to be a part of Auzeen’s fantastic new initiative. Feel like I’m about to jump into the deep end of the pool and revisit old observations in a few months when bebe #2 arrives.

Casa Vicens



The first house designed by Antoni Gaudí is walking distance from our aunt’s apartment in Gràcia but was closed for renovations when we were in Barcelona a few years back. This time, we happened to have a bit of time (outside of family reunions and meals) and so we finally made it there one morning. Highly recommended, wonderfully intricate with many cozy nooks without tourists milling about getting in your way.

Under wraps





Taking the Asian art of wrapping remote controls to a whole new level.

Seeing Myanmar with a toddler on your back

First centrefold featuring the husband and the toddler. She still talks incessantly about Myanmar and, most recently, the Myanmar gorgor (big brother) she met in Phuket, Thailand. Link here (paywall). Also the best surprise for me was the release of Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo five days before the story went to print.
