• Platon on Netflix’s “Abstract” Docuseries

    —A wonderful insight into the work of the renowned portrait photographer, Platon It’s no surprise that Netflix comes out with some really solid shows. I think they’ve proved that time and again (think Stranger Things, Chef’s Table etc. etc.). So naturally when there’s a new, buzzy docu-series on design/art – “Abstract – The Art of Design” – I was curious to

  • What TV Shows Are You Watching?

    I feel weird calling them “TV shows” since I rarely watch any shows on the TV anymore. Thank you, Netflix and Hotstar. Anyway, you get what I mean! I’m currently catching up on “The People v. OJ Simpson” (a year too late to the party, I know). The show is brilliant – amazing actors (Sarah Paulson, Sterling K. Brown and Courtney

  • 4 Books I’ve Read Recently

    Over the last couple of years, one of my key goals has been to read more, and I’ll admit, it’s one of my favourite goals. I mean, what’s not to love about spending hours absorbed in a different world, especially given the real world we live in, right? Or even non-fiction for that matter – it expands your knowledge and

  • My Favourite News Apps

    These days “news” only seems to equate with “chaos” or “anxiety”, but there is no getting around the fact that I like being updated about what’s going on around the world, even the obscure sounding bits. Especially the obscure sounding bits. Part of my need-to-know tendencies stems from my work. A couple of years ago, when I was taking on a

  • My Plan for Books in 2017

    Some thoughts on my book-hoarding tendencies and reading goals (or lack, thereof) for 2017 I have 6,387 unread books in my house. Okay, okay, okay – you know that’s an exaggeration. In reality, it’s more like 58 (give or take 5, or 10, maybe). Or something like that. I mean, I LOVE buying new books. Last year, the moment my salary

  • 28 Books I Read in 2016

    Sometime around September of last year, I sort of fell off the reading bandwagon. Things just got really busy at work and all those incredible TV shows (The Crown, Black Mirror) and also some not-so-incredible ones (here’s looking at you, Gilmore Girls) kept me occupied enough. For the last 2 years, I set myself a target for the number of

  • Books Read | June & July 2016

    These last few weeks have been somewhat busy with work and home stuff, hence the absence around these parts. I would have liked to read more books in the months gone by, but things don’t always go to plan, do they. Also, with work getting even busier, I think my commute time will become my go-to for reading books. Anyway, here’s a

  • Discovered: Boat Magazine

    I spend a LOT of time on the internet. One link leads to the other, and boom, many, many hours gone by. Sometimes, it’s all a wasted effort. Trashy article after trashy article, one too many Facebook “personality” tests, looking through the photographs of a friend of a friend on Instagram – you all know what I mean! Come on,
