Convenient, fast, easy cleanup, kinda fun, […]

Missed Out on Jipangyi

While stuck in South Korea for a day due to plane problems, I saw this at the Grand Hyatt pool side snack bar and didn’t know what it was. What was this candy cane shaped item? Turns out, this “candy cane” is actually upside down and is supposed to be oriented like the letter “j.” […]

Planned months in advance, this trip was going to happen and unfortunately, the outbreak of MERS coincided with our #hichina15 travel plans. Flying on Korean Airlines, there was a short one hour […]

Nike HyperFresh

Really, it’s HyperFr3sh with the number 3 replacing the letter “e” but you know what Nike means. Kinda interesting looking, but I passed. Not a fan of that fat heel look though I like that tropical motif. Available in Hong Kong right now and supposedly coming to the States in July.
