B1G1 Conference Singapore 2018

It’s hard to find words to express how I feel following this amazing conference in Singapore. Back in 2017, my marketing agency, Brandlective, joined forces with B1G1, Business for Good. This is a platform that allows us to contribute in the manner we desire. It’s our way of making a difference and helping the world […]

Tanjung Puting National Park

Free-roaming orangutans, combined with a storybook journey up a winding jungle river, made this adventure world-class. Since collaborating with B1G1 last November and aligning my businesses CSR Policy with the UN Global Sustainability Goals I was given the opportunity to go on this short study tour to visit one of the projects that we give […]

Pangkalan Bun

Pangkalan Bun, is a city in Central Kalimantan province on Borneo in Indonesia. I landed in the tiny airport after a short flight from nearby Surabaya. Flying over thousands of hectares of rainforest was quite incredible. To me, the rainforest looked vast, however I learned leading up to this trip that over 70% has been […]

Sneaky Sinapore

Info coming soon…… But, seriously, how did I not know Singapore is awesome!!

Plans to Visit a Conservation Project in Borneo

I’m visiting Borneo next month to see a project we began working with in 2017.  Although my business contributes to several charity projects, I’ve never visited or even given up any of my personal time for charity.  This fills me with guilt.  Why have I never done this before?  I’m sure this upcoming trip will […]

Japanese Ryokan Experience

We book a 1-night stay at the Momijiya Bekkan Kawa no Lori, a traditional Japanese Ryokan.  I have read a lot about Ryokan’s and heart it is an absolute ‘must-do’ on any trip to Japan, so I knew to an extent what to expect but…. Wow!  This place sure knew how to make a 1st impression. […]

Fushimi Inari-Taisha

We had the most amazing experience in a Ryokan last night and after a 30min drive back to the city we stashed our luggage in one of the many lockers in Kyoto Station before heading out to Inari to see the amazing Fushimi Inari-Taisha shine. With seemingly endless arcades of vermilion torii (shrine gates) spread across […]


  Arashiyama is in the far west of Kyoto, tucked along the base of the Arashiyama Mountains (meaning “Storm Mountains”).  We visited this area upon arriving in Kyoto from Tokyo on the bullet train as I was really excited to tick off some of the biggest tourist spots immediately. A short walk from the train […]

Top 5 Things to do in Tokyo

I’m fairly overwhelmed at what to include in my blog post about Tokyo and because we jammed so much into our short 3-day trip, I think it best to highlight our top 5 sights.  I must disclose that we are not big on ‘shopping’ while travelling so I haven’t included the amazing Ginza district in […]

Shibuya Food Tour

For anyone that knows Ross & I well, it goes without saying that a big draw to Japan was the food.  Normally we do our own research and plan most of our trips around what and where we will eat. However, we only have 6 days in Japan and let’s be honest, Japanese cuisine (和食, washoku) […]
