My iPhone Apps and the Art of a "Selfie"

Not to rub it in or anything, but this is my view right now:

I'm laying between an infinity pool, a bar and the ocean. How perfect is that? Well, if it's any comfort my vacation will end soon and it'll be back to the daily grind.

Pack One Week into a Carry-On Suitcase

I've lived out of a suitcase for 3 months and out of a carry-on suitcase for one month. I less of a master packer and more of excellent shover-of-stuff into nooks and crannies. Still, I underestimated as usual and thought that packing for a one week tropical getaway would a piece of cake. 

Live from Koh Tao, Thailand - Part 2

I've been testing out this new and improved Blogger app and it's been a mixed review so far. It's definitely improved with its photo posting abilities but it's also failed to automatically save a post I'd nearly finished. /annoyed

Anyways, we've been lucky with the weather forecasts so far but today is a day for lounging about our bungalow. It's much too grey to wander far from room service.

Live from Koh Thao, Thailand - Part 1

By the wonders of technology, I'm writing this while drinking watermelon juice and overlooking a private bay on the island of Koh Tao, Thailand. I can officially say,"I'm on holiday!!!" (3 exclamation marks necessary)

The past week has been a blur; feeling like both the longest and the shortest week "ever," I've been hustlin' to do last minute errands and work hand-over before catching our midnight flight. 

Almost 16 hours later, we made it to our bungalow in Koh Tao:

First order of business? FOOD! I love Thai food and have yet to find a satisfactory restaurant in Tokyo so I immediately ordered a few of my favorite things for dinner:

1. Young fresh coconut
2. Tom kha soup
3. Green curry
4. Fried fish

All were everything I could have hoped for: delicious.

I've been reminded of why I miss SEA!  Now it's time for me to run off and find a dive center for tomorrow and more food to devour. Bye for now!
