Hands down, THE BEST BOOK I’VE READ…
My sudden, inexplicable appetite to read has ballooned tremendously in the tail-end of 2020. Here are the best books that I’ve read this year.
The story is about the life of an unmarried, 36-year-old Japanese woman who is content with working at a convenience store.
This isn’t a highly gripping or life-changing tale, instead, it is more of a nice post-work short read that you can gobble up in one sitting. The book promises nothing less than the provision of a new perspective on career and life.
I enjoyed being absorbed in the microcosm of society depicted by…
With people staying home, Covid-19 has spurred a large reading frenzy (amidst exercising, gardening and cooking). Strangely enough, I only caught the reading bug towards the tail end of 2020.
Here’s a list of books published in 2020 that I’ve discovered after combing through endless recommendations and pouring my soul to reading both physical and e-books.
Here are 10 top books of 2020, in no order of merit, that you can get for your friends or family members this Christmas. …

400 years ago, this was a cure-it-all remedy.
All over social media, you see influencers posting about teas, with green tea and turmeric shots being all the rage. But have you heard of this pink new kid on the block?
Echinacea tea and its supplements have been increasing in popularity, promising a wealth of health benefits. What exactly is the hype about, and what is Echinacea anyway?

You push the button down, and out comes a fluffy foam. It’s like magic. It makes hand washing fun and encourages you to wash your hands more frequently and for a longer period of time.
Scrubbing your hands for at least 20 seconds can be a chore. But with foam and a melodious humming of the “Happy Birthday” song from beginning to end twice, it’s actually pretty okay. Needless to say, this is especially important during the pandemic.
Soap has evolved from its bar form to liquid and foam options. …

This is when the concept of kintsugi can be helpful.
Amidst the pandemic, I thought sharing a meaningful travel experience that I had in Hanoi, Vietnam, last year, would be invigorating. I learnt so much about how daily life was like for my tour guide.
“Hello!” she waves in the blistering heat.
My student tour guide, standing next to her scooter, is in a bright yellow jacket spotted with tiny floral prints. After exchanging quick greetings in the 38 degree Celsius weather that is August in Hanoi, we jet off to an eatery.
A penultimate 21-year-old student, Minh is studying Business English at Hanoi’s Foreign Trade University. She is one…
