San Francisco Skyline

I took the ferry to Sausalito from San Francisco and would recommend taking out of town guests for the ride as well. It’s an absolute must.

The day was typical Bay Area weather-lots of sun, cool breeze and a relaxing atmosphere.

The ride is approximately 18 minutes, one way. Cost of the ride varies.

Hair Extension: Nepal Style


I stumbled upon this store when I was visiting the Sleeping Goddess in Budhanilkantha in Kathmandu Valley, Nepal. They sell “organic” hair extensions and I was excited, as the storeowners were eager to sell me their goodies and readily showed me the step-by-step process of adding hair extension. It comes in various colors and length and is worn at festivals…gorgeous isn’t it?

My Nepalese Dog

My Nepalese Dog


Tsuyo, our dog demands to be treated like a King! We seldom let him in our casa unless he begs…Tsuyo, translated ‘strong’ in Japanese, is roughly six years old, but he has the stamina and energy of a newly born puppy. He’s the ‘star’ of our family and he knows it! Here, he ignores my mom’s plea…

Ayesha Thaper


at

A Delhi based model and the heiress of Thapar Industries.

I first read about Ayesha in Elle India…cannot recall the exact story, but Ayesha is the current ‘It’ girl of India. Similarity to Bianca Jagger is uncanny…and I love that she’s launching several businesses and showing her entrepreneur spirit. She was married to a Turkish businessman (divorced now) and spends her time in various continents.

Sex With God…Gift Idea Part 1


agod

This statue sits on my coffee table. It’s a human having sex with a Hindu deity. I purchased the erotic piece in Nepal. Shopping in Nepal is an experience!

bgod

Scandalous? Sexy? Unsuitable? Not at all. It’s ART. The store merchant reiterated that the statue would bring me luck in the LOVE department with a mysterious man.

cgod

Four years later, I’m still waiting for the mysterious man to appear…oh, mysterious man…where art thou?

Smart Bargains


Check this out… from Diiver on Vimeo.

I love shopping in Kathmandu, Nepal–trinkets are mega cheap, artifacts and remains from temples are abundant, and what more, it’s my home town. Here, I’m in Kathmandu City surrounded by flea market goods and century-old temples. Not quite like shopping in Milan but, definitely a memorable event.

Patan City

Tags: , , , , , , ,

Patan City


Patan City is about 5 km south of Kathmandu Valley. It’s a royal city (meaning monarchies used to live there centuries ago). I feel like I’m back in the past when I’m in Patan…its surreal.
It’s a must-see if you are visiting Nepal. Why? Where else can you see craftsmen creating wood ornaments, stone carvings and metal statues of deities surrounded by temples….Yep, there are temples EVERYWHERE. The craftsmen will shoos you away when they are creating their art, but the key is to BUY some of their creations and then take pictures. But I’m not here to talk about art or temples…customer service at restaurants in Patan can be a tad bit slow….so, here I am waiting for the menu from the waiter….it’s been over 30 minutes…
