Hong Kong – City of Contrasts Part 1

Hong Kong happened. And it was awesome. First off, the flight was brutal. We flew with a stop over in LA, which came up to about 6 and 12 hours to Hong Kong. What helped were these noise cancelling headphones. I’m not getting any commission off of this, but I’ll link to them here because they are still currently on sale. I think it’s an all around great buy because you can use them in your daily commute, or to drawn out the sounds of your loved ones whenever they’re less love, and more like getting on your nerves. Also,...

On going to Hong Kong, Tibetan pants, and cellulite

Umm, so this weekend my significant other and I sort of purchased tickets to Hong Kong. We were planning on getting away somewhere for a few days before the holidays, but I was thinking something along the lines of California. And technically we will be flying through Los Angeles, so that’s like a spot on guess. Plus an additional half of the globe. Now what had happened was, we received a fairly good deal on tickets that cost a little over $600 each. For a round trip. To Hong Kong. I mean wouldn’t you abandon your children and/or pets and...

I might need to restock on my holy water

I’ve been very philosophical lately in my posts, and ain’t nobody got time for that. Let’s get back to reality. It’s getting cold people, and that means sweater weather. It also means staying inside more, and no more pressure for the outside activities. I thank God and Netflix for changing seasons, and quality entertainment. Speaking of this last one, I highly recommend you watch Mindhunter. It’s about FBI agents interviewing serial killers in order to understand, and classify behavioral psychology behind their actions. And did you know that most of your problems, and insecurities stem from childhood? I KNOW. Anyway,...

Somebody is so going to rape, and kill me now

It’s been interesting lately. Busy also. To the point that I’ve lost track of days. It’s been busy at work. Just so you understand, Halloween was ‘one of those days’ that only this picture can somewhat express it. And instead of going to a Halloween party, I went to get a haircut because the whole Chewbacca look was going to last my romantic relationship only that far. And I went to a now local place for me, called Hair Metal. And needless to say, I was met by a trio of gorgeous badass women, with real bad pouty mouths, and stories of New York...

Dearly Beloved, legitimized hipsters

Dearly Beloved, I now pronounce this cite a legitimate hipster guide. After searching high, and low for the past several months, I have found the apartment. Or it has found me, just something us mindful beings like to say. For the apartment is located in Williamsburg, or as the Instagram check-in refers to it Hipster Motherland. This wasn’t an intentional search result, but when the opportunity presented a place with not one, but two non-functioning fireplaces, the choice was obvious. How can one resist an exposed brick wall. Nohow. Yesterday, my significant other and I spent a lot of time...

I have an announcement, unless obviously nuclear annihilation

Ok. So, what had happened was… After my last post, I receive a fair amount of crap for writing about frivolous activities during the times of suffering. And it’s not like these comments effected me, but they probably did. Because then more times of sufferings followed, and writing about this awesome Photoville exhibition I attended last weekend seemed frivolous again. And then I read more news, and people just kept on suffering, and shooting each other, and at one point we were close to a nuclear annihilation.  Not to make light of all that is happening around the world, but...

Champagne during a hurricane, or how to celebrate your birthday in style

This Sunday we celebrated my Wednesday Friend’s birthday. And you know I was determined to make it because I drove from Pennsylvania to Long Island to Brooklyn to New Jersey. And you might think this seems a bit excessive, but it was so worth it in the end. We were going on a boat ride with our favorite mad captain that I wrote about here and here. First of all, we came prepared. With balloons. Because boat trip or not, a birthday celebration is never complete without balloons. But then a disaster stroke! We lost them at the parking lot...

On end of summer, and abusive relationships

So, I’ve been away. And now I’m not anymore. To be honest, I’ve decided to take a break from all things blogging related, in a summer-vacation-spirit-of-things. And it was nice, it let me clear my head, come up with great ideas, and improvements, and…not really. As you might know, improvements are not really my thing. Ranting about different topics is. Also, once you’re past certain age limit your head is never clear, there is always that one thing to stress about. Or that one nagging, shitty idea. Might be just me with this last one. I went to London on...

Some almost serious business talk

I am leaving for vacation today. And I’m super excited, also super exhausted, and sort of looking forward to that 6 hours of uninterrupted sitting. It’s been a month. I’ll be providing trip updates through Instagram, and Twitter. At least that’s the plan right now. Maybe I’ll be enjoying myself so much I won’t share shit, who knows.   But before I go, I wanted to tell you about this event I got to attend on Wednesday night. I got to listen to a lecture given by the entrepreneur Edward Shenderovich on his latest venture Knotel. And initially, I was...

@twisted_mind is surprisingly straight forward, or manual for an aspiring photographer

You know what I realized? I haven’t been introducing you to any cool people lately. And it’s time. I think you’re ready. I hope you’re ready for this one. For the coolest, awesomest, and most talentest (let’s keep grammatical errors homogeneous) person I’ve met thus far. His photography will make your skin crawl, and your eyes water from amazement, and let’s be honest, fairly often shock. He’s a Buddhist divided by 16, as he himself explains, everything is true with an exception, until it becomes a rule within that exception. He might have stolen this line from the Inception movie....
