Dragon fruit at Banyan Tree Bangkok

Good morning Bangkok! This very moment, we should have been on our way to Norway to go skiing with AC and her friends, but something came up and we ended up in Bangkok instead. We’re staying at Banyan Tree, which is a wonderful, all-suites hotel, and even though we have the smallest type of suite (a Horizon suite), we’re still spoiled with 517 sqft all to ourselves. Our suite is on the 49th floor so we also have a great view of the city including the busy Sathon Road. In the photos below, you can see how crowded it was this afternoon. I’m glad we weren’t stuck in traffic down there.

Mandarin Oriental, Singapore

When Poul was flying to Brisbane, I checked in at Mandarin Oriental. I’m not very faithful when it comes to hotels. I usually make reservations through booking sites like Hotels.com and I’m not a member of any reward programs. This kind of hotel promiscuity usually means that I get the worst rooms with the poorest views. Upgrades? Ha! Forget about it! They go to the loyal customers, who don’t sleep around.

Dinner at Parlor, members' club, NYC

Last time I was in NYC, I finally managed to come by Parlor for a preview dinner. Parlor is a member’s club in NYC, and members dine for $20 for a special 3-course menu.

We started with cocktails in the bar, and they were so good that we decided to continue with cocktails for the dinner instead of wine. We could choose between 2 different starters and two different mains, followed by sorbet for dessert.

Danish kransekage, New Year's Eve

Poul and I were invited to a New Year’s Eve party at a friend’s place in our building, and I had promised to make Danish kransekage (marzipan cake) because in Denmark, this is what we eat, when the clock strikes midnight on New Year’s Eve. And how hard could it be? A little harder than I expected, because I could only find marzipan with 20% almonds or less, and when I test-baked a piece, it just melted into what looked like a giant cookie

Hello Kitty Orchid Garden Café at Changi Airport

I was on my way out of Singapore airport when I spotted the super cute Hello Kitty Orchid Garden Café, and even though it was much too early for such a pastel color overdose, there was no way around it. I had to go inside. There’s just something about that cat which makes me want to wear pink, draw rainbows and order desserts which are too pretty to eat.
