I was lucky and got invited to spend the Memorial Day Weekend with a friend from Uni and his family in Lavallette, New Jersey. Lavallette is located on the Barnegat Peninsula in Ocean County. I swear the sand is whiter and the water is bluer than most NJ beaches (I have heard). When you can’t...
I am on holiday in the U.S. and this weekend was Memorial Day. While most of the people here go to the beach and enjoy a good BBQ with the family in the evening, Memorial Day Weekend honours soldiers who died in Afghanistan, those who fought to protect America. It is also the first Memorial...

Unfortunately, the Dishoom Holi event happened without me this year. I know, I was a bit too late but even in the second round I couldn’t get any tickets. However, the lovely Dishoom team in Shoreditch invited me for breakfast.
