Helloooo, it’s me *in Adele’s voice*. Hahaha! How are you doing?

I deeply appreciate it and I pray that you continuously have reasons to celebrate and rejoice! Happy ‘almost Christmas’ to you o! Lol.

Travel Diaries: Tales from Country 38 and how to cover 4 countries in 9 days

Hello friends and welcome to my birthday month – whoooop!!!!  This post is long overdue sef – I wrote it 3 weeks ago but did not get around to putting the photos and we all know that a blog post without photos is just an essay, lol. I am very sure you don’t come here for essays 😊 I will be sharing all the details of my recent trip to Malta (and 3 other countries). Wait, can 4 weeks ago still be considered recent? Well, in this era of throwbacks… Read More

Adventures of Ms Kemz – the ‘how I almost missed my flight’ edition

Guys, what I am about to share is nothing short of a miracle. I fly a LOT and I know that it is almost impossible to go from waking up at 6:43am to boarding a flight at 7:15am. But when Jesus is involved, indeed all things become possible! You might ask me how I ended up in this situation and the answer is simple – I was tired and I overslept! I was in France for 2 nights –  Friday in Barbizon/Fontainebleau at my alma mater, INSEAD, and Saturday in… Read More

Tales from Lebanon (#37), group trips and December travel plans

Sooooooo, I was sitting at a lounge in Frankfurt airport (big shout-out to my girl MK for upgrading me) and I had about 90mins before my connecting flight. What to do? Work? There is always work to be done but naa. Watch Youtube videos? I would have loved to catch up on some web series I just started following (Yelo Peppe by Maggi, anyone?) but the lounge internet was not compatible with my YT desires. Write a blogpost? Ah haa!!! That’s it! I did not need internet to write so… Read More

Life Lately: Vlog launch + Superwoman gets tired too!

My e-familyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy – chai, I have missed you guys! Ah ahn, how now? How are things going with you? What’s popping? Ki lon sele? I know some of you are not very happy with me for being MIA so I am not even going to pretend like I don’t know that this post is coming late.
