*I went for this event last year, and it was embargoed until I could publish the interview for our February issue. Then I kind of lost the mood to write and it just laid there in my drafts section for months. But here we are.

Our four-day stay in Bario came to an end too soon! We spent the morning soaking in final sights, smells and sounds of the long house, which was in a lull after the previous night’s festivities.

In which I mean that I broke down in the middle of the jungle after an 11-hour hike, and the local tribesmen had to organise a search and rescue team because we were 6 hours late and they thought someone had gotten injured. Also, a leech nearly crawled up my … Continue reading Back from Bario!
Hey, guys! New year, new adventure ! First trip of the year and I’m off again (for work) to Bario, home to the Kelabit, the smallest tribe of indigenous people in Sarawak.

Hey guys! It’s our second day in Australia and we’re making our way on the food and wine trial across Victoria, well known for its vineyards, farmsteads and rural towns. We kicked off with a wine tasting (at 10am, no less!) in Avenel, before hopping into the car for our next destination: the outback town of Ruffy in Strathbogie Shire, 175km from Melbourne. As our car drove … Continue reading Review: Fresh & Rustic Country Food @ Ruffy Produce Store, Ruffy, Victoria
