I think I’m with Bølle as parents are with their babies, and I have to sit on my hands in order not to spam my friends with Bølle photos and Facebook updates all the time. It’s just that he’s so adorable…
Forget screaming kids and annoying fellow passengers. What really makes me feel 10 years older after a 10-hour flight is the dry cabin air, which will drain my skin and leave it in a miserable condition.
To avoid this, I’ve tried different day creams and night creams, but none of them have really done it for me. I’ve also experimented with sheet masks, which come in convenient individual packaging, but after scaring
Before the JAY-Z concert, Poul and I had dinner at Morgan’s Barbecue, which is only a short walk from Barclays Center. When it comes to food in New York, barbecue might not be the first thing you think of, but in recent years several really good barbecue spots have popped up in Brooklyn in particular.
Yesterday I was invited to the launch of the new Fashion Afternoon Tea at Raffles. I went with friend A, but at the event, we also ran into several new and old faces. It was a very nice evening and the food was good too, and especially the scones deserve a mention. I know scones are supposed to be a little dry and crumbly, but I like them a lot better, when they’re more like Danish “boller”, that is, not too dry, just like the ones at Raffles.
The first time I met Badminton was by the pool, where he was giving complimentary head and neck massages to the hotel guests. Banyan Tree has all sorts of complimentary treats, and in addition to massage, they also offered free yoga classes, so I signed up for a yoga lesson the following morning at the hotel’s gym.

In 2018, Thailand finally got a Michelin guide, and one of the stars landed at Nahm. I usually don’t go star-hunting, but since Nahm was at the hotel right next to ours, it also felt silly not to go. I therefore booked a table for lunch the other day. We chose the set menu which we put together from the a la carte menu and here’s what we had:
After You Dessert Cafe became famous for their Shibuya Honey Toast, which hit Bangkok big time a couple of years ago. Today, the new star stealing the show at After You (and dominating Insta-feeds all over the city) is the Hojicha Kakigori. It looks like an edible version of Mt. Fuji, and it is absolutely delicious.
You’ll find a lot of dirt cheap Isan (Northeastern) food at the street stalls, but sometimes, such as when you’re jet-lagged and still not acclimatized to the humid Bangkok heat, you want to sit down and enjoy your food in nice, air conditioned surroundings. For this purpose, Somtum Der in Silom and Som Tam Nua on Siam Square are the two places that first pop up, so with Somtum Der just a short walk from our hotel, there was no doubt regarding where we would be having our first lunch in Bangkok.
