Shopping & hanging with Juanita part 2

I’m quite lucky to have been able to see Juanita again in a matter of weeks! This Globe-trotting woman was just in Nepal YESTERDAY! Before she heads off Down Under then returning to the other side of the world in Switzerland, we took the day to chit-chat and pick up from where we left off.

First was a late lunch. Then we watched The Dictator (funny! But not as good as Borat), then we wandered around Arab Street to buy fabric again. I was hunting for a plain BLUE cotton that I am determined to use with a retro floral fabric I bought with her the last time. I went with my gut feeling and I think it matches (see picture for reference. How?).

After that, we walked around the shops and ended up in a Turkish restaurant for mint tea.

Then we shared a dinner of Fish Briyani and Chicken Mutarbak at Zam Zam (washed down with a pink rose Bandung drink).

We shopped around Haji Lane for a bit and I picked up a gold lightning bolt necklace (Wicked Laundry) for a steal at $10! And then I couldn’t resist buying an overpriced pair of Power Rangers danglys for $20 (Victoria Jomo).

It was a good day…




I produced an indie music festival in Singapore for 7years before I moved to the US to be with my indie game dev husband Tom who made Axiom Verge and Axiom Verge 2. We live in Los Angeles, California with our son Alastair (named for Alastair Reynolds) and our dog Goliath (named for his size).

  1. shopping in the Arab street was inspired by watching the dictator or was it just a coincidence? you bought some lovely fabrics!! …and a Turkish restaurant (if only for a tea), with a good friend that you don’t see so often… what a great day!!! I so wish I could meet with you guys 😉
