On new shores - Thailand, Journal and my Jewelry.


It's been a while that I posted here. I have been busy. Busy in the best way possible! Traveling.
Thailand was on my itinerary and I visited Bangkok, Pattaya with brief stop over in Colombo, Sri Lanka.
The bustling city of Bangkok was full of the most colorful taxis I have ever seen! From shocking pink to bright orange, blue, red...these taxis were the first thing that caught my eyes!




The beaches of Pattaya were so pristine, with clear water that looked as clear as the water inside of a coconut and coral reefs with fish swimming by. The blue of the sky was really spectacular.

I rode the water scooter!


Seafood lovers would have been in paradise, I guess, but being a vegan, I had to really pick and choose my food and resort to the wide variety of fruits available.

More about the trip later. I want to share with you some chalk pastel paintings I did inspired by Degas ballet dancers.








A new hobby that has captured my heart is making jewelry. These are some of my bracelets.













If you find anything you like, please do drop me a note.

Wishing all of you a happy weekend! I will post more pics in my next entry.
