It reminds me of summer afternoons. I sit on the wooden edge of the bench overlooking the vast blue sea. The coconut leaves bow down its leaves as they sway gently with the cool summer breeze. The sound of the waves calm my senses as I watch the flock of sea birds fly by. With... Continue Reading →



I am listening to Death Cab for Cutie’s “Your Heart is an Empty Room” as I type these words. I remember the day I made “The Tuesday Playlist” on Spotify around summer last year after Saab and Jim Bacarro of Cheats did a live duet of their favourite songs on Instagram.
